We Heard You! - Community Redesign

[ Edited ]

UPDATE: We began rolling out the redesign today (Thursday, November 3, 2011), and it is essentially complete. The Enterprise Business Community will be re-started sometime between midnight and 4:00 AM Pacific time Friday morning (November 4) to finalize the installation of some new modules. We appreciate your patience and your support during this time.

 

We heard you. This redesign incorporates new features and functionality requested by HP community members. You asked for better search capabilities;  better integration with your social networks--like Facebook and Twitter;  better navigation between communities; and blog subscriptions. This new design has all of this. 

Naturally, the new pages may feel less familiar at first, but we think you'll find the additional features are worth the change.

So you noticed that the new design is darker than before, and you’re wondering why? Well, while we made the functional changes to these pages, we also updated the visual design for consistency to the current HP brand identity, and adding black is a design direction meant to set certain content areas apart for better "findability."

 

The Community Home page will look much like this:

Here is a discussion board post:

And a blog articles listing page:

Meanwhile, thank you for your patience and participation as we continue to grow and serve our most passionate and valued HP customers.
