It was a windy autumn morning when the upgrade and CSS fairies came visiting Citrix Discussions Forums. Waving their magic wands, the fairies gave Discussions an upgrade and a pretty little makeover. The end.

Okay, that is not completely true. We did get an upgrade and a facelift to Citrix Discussions Forums, and yes, we consider our developers and designers fairies with magic powers. However, it took a lot more than magic dust and fairy prowess to pull this off!

For quite some time now, we have been busy upgrading our Discussions platform. I am pleased to announce that the upgraded platform is available for all you to try now. Here are some of the highlights of the release:

  • Fresh UI
  • Daily, Monthly, Yearly and All Time Leaderboard
  • Upvote option to recognize Peer responses.
  • Redesigned “Choose Best Answer” option.
  • Activity Feeds with RSS
  • Redesigned profile page
  • Option to Create a Topic from any Forum Page.
  • Captcha instead of Moderation

This is just the beginning! We have a feature-rich roadmap, so expect more cool features in coming months.

Please share your feedback in the comments section or use the “Report an Issue” option in the Discussions site.
