We’re pleased to announce the upcoming launch of our new PluginBuddy support forum. Our awesome support team has worked tirelessly for months to plan, build, and implement a new support forum with new features and improved functionality. The new forum means less time “trying” to find stuff, and more time IMMEDIATELY getting down to business, interacting, asking, sharing and learning.
Check out a few of the new forum features:
A Clean, Easy-To-Navigate Design
Nice, huh? Forum categories are now more streamlined and organized. You’ll notice individual forums are organized by topic with the most recent tickets visible on the right.

New Posts Editor
After logging into the new forum, you’ll notice the new topic posts editor–providing easier integration of code and rich media. You can add tags, format, and add/upload files or images to your post. The new posts editor makes it easier to copy/paste code and to include code formatting for different languages.

Enjoy new, advanced forum search capabilities. Search queries can now be defined by section, topic, title, tag, author, or date. Define how results are displayed by sorting by number of views or posts.
Note: All existing posts from the old forum will be migrated into the new forum, so no support topics or threads will be lost.

More reliable email notifications and advanced PM’s (private messaging)
The new forum allows for consistent, reliable email notifications and easier-to-navigate private messaging. Manage your preferences directly from your user profile and specify your notification options.

The scheduled forum launch is Thursday morning. During this transition, we do anticipate a few hours of support downtime, but we’ll be working to get the new forum up as quickly as possible. We’ll keep you posted with the latest updates via email and Twitter (@PluginBuddy). See you on the new forum soon!
