    UE Forums update - Thanks for your patience while we get things back in order

    Hi all.

    We just updated the forum software version used here for the UE forums. There is still a bit of work ahead of us as we get some things back in order, and we are aware of some issues such as missing themes, badges, and search problems. Thanks for your patience while we address these, and these forums should feel like home again soon.

    Please share any feedback or issues you discover on the thread in the Feedback section: https://forums.unrealengine.com/unre...pdate-feedback

    Thanks

    UPDATE:
    We have fixed the ability for users to post replies under the Announcements section
    Signatures are displayed for all users again (they can be custom disabled if desired)
    Badges are displaying again
    Searching should provide full results now
    Frequent session timeouts have been fixed

    Really sucks that signatures are disabled by default.. Almost everyone on the forums gains exposure and generate interest in whatever they are working on from our signatures and now that is gone. With signature rules you can keep them clean so they dont' get out of control but I honestly don't see the big benefit with removing them by default.. I mean if you want to allow people to disable them then sure but don't make them disabled by default

      I liked the signatures. I found useful community links through them. Some clickbait. Its well worth the trouble.
      colqui helped me learn with a blueprint i found in signature, and I found some mp assets I didnt know existed.
      it also gives confidence and inspiration to indie, devs that see others making progress, and releasing good games through links. Not just building lighting

        totally agree with Ironbelly, its kind of suck with the signature gone, and we can't search latest post in forum anymore? Be honest I don't think its a improvement

            It's not nice they didn't test things internally before pushing it out on public but hey, it's not meant to stay this way. I assume a lot of the current troubles will be addressed in a week or two.

              I honestly think the old one was fine. I don't see why signatures had to be disabled I found them very useful. Hopefully features that was in the old forums can be put back in the new setup. :\

                  Sigs would be nice (and maybe avatars, call me crazy) but also I'm not digging the page width? Previous layout used the whole monitor, now we've got one little column.

                    The dark theme is easier on my eyes when reading lots of text i noticed, not sure if its the same for others but hope that comes back soon.

                      Stretching text across the entire monitor is actually really bad for readability. Way too much moving the eyes left and right to read annoying long lines of text. ​​​You'll find that most other forums, and blogs, and everything else, use a fixed width layout.

                          Signatures are actually on display, when not logged in.

                            There is such a link visible, when not logged in.

                              +1 Since marketplace doesn't provide discoverability for us - asset developers -, you just disabled our precious little marketing tool.
