Not Happy With New Forum So Far
After over a week of trying, and with assistance from @Ovidiu L., I finally managed to gain access to this new Forum. I am a long time contributor to the old Forum, and a long-time customer of Bitdefender.
I am unhappy that when browsing the categories, you cannot see which ones have new topics. You have to open each category individually to see which ones have new topics. Please fix that.
I did have 2FA enabled on my Central account, and had to disable it to get access to these Forums. I am not happy also that I have to use my Central account to log in to a public Forum. I formerly had separate login credentials for Central and for the Forum. I am going to have to check what happens now when I re-enable my 2FA to see if I can login successfully to this new Forum, though I have no idea why BD is requiring the Central 2FA to access a public Forum.
Also, you should note that many people, myself included, have uBlock Origin installed. During my many attempts to access this new Forum, uBlock Origin was blocking "community.bitdefender.com", so I had to whitelist this site. The developers should discuss this with uBlock Origin, because it is not immediately obvious that uBlock Origin is blocking this site.
I would like to see this site greatly improved. I was formerly a daily visitor, but now it is so cumbersome to login and see new posts in Bitdefender 2020 Home Products that it hardly seems worth the effort.
I also don't see a "preview post" button, which is common in most Forums and which I use to make sure that my posts are properly formatted. I would like to see that feature added.
Just my two cents. Thank you and have a great day.
