I have been thinking of creating an AD sticky so I've looked through the categories for a relevant section to post in, and I think the categories need sorting you a bit! having said that I don't understand how the categorising is working because threads in the Cloud section belong to other sections.

Suggestions:

  • Merge all the Zarafa Small Business sections
  • Merge all the ownCloud for Business sections
  • Merge Account Import and Account Manager?
  • Merge Bandwidth and QoS, Bandwidth and QoS Manager and Bandwidth manager
  • Query merging the Anti-malaware sections and the anti-spam one. Also Mail AntiSpam and Mail Antivirus. Possibly add Greylisting, Gateway AntiPhishing and Gateway Antivirus here.
  • Not sure of the differentiation between Directory/LDAP and Directory Server. Possibly merge.
  • Merge the dropbox sections
  • As there is a Firewall section do we need Egress, Custom and Port Forwarding sections as well (but no Input/Incoming)?
  • Merge FTP Plugin and FTP Server
  • Merge Groups, User Profile and Users - also perhaps with Account Import and Account Manager.
  • Merge the two OpenVPN sections
  • Merge PPTP Plugin and PPTP Server.
  • Merge all the Kaspersky sections
  • Merge the remote data backup sections
  • Merge the two SMTP sections
  • There is a separate (popular) VPN section, but just about all VPN's are covered by the IPsec, OpenVPN and PPTP VPN sections so this is confusing.
  • Merge the two Web Proxy sections
  • Merge the two Webconfig Sections
  • Merge the two Windows Networking sections
  • Possibly merge two Static IPsec VPN sections
  • Merge content filter engine with Web Proxy Plugin and Web Proxy Server, perhaps with the Filter and Proxy Report
  • There is a Multiwan and Multi-WAN section!
  • Merge Database and MySQL Server

The list is not exhaustive as it is not so easy panning up and down it. Mail could possibly be simplified but is will be easier to see once the list is a bit shorter.

    Can we start with making the drop-down banner go back up, like sometime since this thread started last September? The drop-down thingy has been blocking my view of this site since it was introduced. Even in Feb 2017, it does not behave properly.
    That sounds like a browser issue. Which browser are you using? The site is heavily scripted. Do you block any?

    Simplyfing is a very good idea.
    Too much categories doesn't make the forum post easy to follow or to find old posts.

    Maybe this also speeds up the forum ;)

    Clearcenter is following the Marketplace categories.


    General

    Cloud

    Server

    Network

    Gateway

    System

    Network


    General is added for non app posts. At the moment not every app has a own sub forum. There are apps missing and there are also apps in the general forum that don't belong there.

    I have a feeling a lot of the index is dynamically generated rather than the posts just going to the section where the OP sticks them. It is probably generated against an index. I don't think it looks too good and I am not so keen on too many empty sections either.

    I think it's a good idea to re-arrange the forum categories. Something that I notice for some apps there are categories and others not. Are the forum categories in a unfinished state?
