Very poor navigation....Unfortunately it's more like Microsoft Answers Forum and not a substitute of TechNet or MSDN Forums at all.
So sad to see the fate of those two classical forums like this.
@SSengupta-4080 can you be more specific on what features you are missing here?
For the record, we are not trying to build another MSDN or TechNet Forum site. We are trying to focus more on Questions and Answers than in conversations. We are trying to remove the unnatural barriers of the categories and forums as well.
I understand we are moving slower than we wanted in creating new features and fixing bugs and I apologize for that.
Anyways if you can provide us more information on what scenarios you would like to see covered or improved, we will consider them for implementation. Thank you!
Good day ,
You can use the following extension if you want to get a looks & feel whioch is more like the MSDN forums
You can watch the presentation (ShowHideContent.pptx) before using it in order to get more understanding on what this extension does. The presentation is not full but gives good basic.
If there will be demand then I will improve the extension more. But I need to know that I am not wasting my time and it is needed. At this time I developed it to my personal use since I MUST HAVE IT if I want to use the QnA system.
Good day @BonnieDeWitt-QnA
You do not need to know anything about JS in order to use this extension. Like most app you just use it a client.
I noticed that you are Microsoft MVP, so you can contact me using the Yammer MVP channel if you want. I saw your respond here only by luck. There is no way for us to follow our threads in this system except by emails which I will not use for this. There is no filter or sort option by our thread as there is in the MSDN forums
There are several known third party or internal solutions for all common browsers in order to use custom "userscript" - these tools also known as "userscript manager" application. For example, Firefox uses a tool named Greasemonkey which is the original product and for Chrome uses a tool named Tampermonkey which was emerged from a Greasemonkey.
These tools are extensions to the browsers. Once you install these tools, you can add extensions scripts for specific pages. For example the QnA extension script which I wrote. The scripts for the different tools are basically the same but formatted a bit differently (the header for example is different).
note! Tampermonkey is available for Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Opera Next, and Firefox. I only tested it on Chrome.
My script is ready to be used on Chrome using Tampermonkey. If you are using different userscript manager (like Greasemonkey) then you might need to make tiny adjustment in the headers. If you are using Tampermonkey for example on chrome then you can use it as it is.
(1) Install Tampermonkey (simple double click on the app and click next).
From official site: https://www.tampermonkey.net/
From Chrome extensions store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo?hl=en
This will add to the browser small icon on the right upper side of the page
(2) Go to my script using this URL:
If tampermonkey is installed, then it should recognize the script as tampermonkey script and it will show you a button to install the script.
This is the preferred option since this way you will get information about updates.
(1) Install Tampermonkey (Same as before)
(2) Open Tampermonkey Dashboard by right click on the icon
You should see several tabs
(3) Click on the tab "Utilities"
(4) Scroll down to the end and fill the "Install from URL" with the URL to my script and click install
You can also download the script and install from file
You can copy the content of the script and create new script
and so on...
