New OPEN CASCADE Website

Forum supervisor's picture

OPEN CASCADE is happy and proud to announce the launch of our new re-designed website.

This website merges our traditionally separated .com and .org websites into a single user-friendly website that, as we hope, will be simple to understand and navigate. The new website has a greater emphasis on our range of products and services, at the same time giving you a clear idea on what OPEN CASCADE is and what added value it provides for its customers.

Our website has got a completely new and fresh innovative appearance, intuitive navigation and reliable search functionality. In spite of a completely new appearance the website still has some familiar features and tools such as our Forum, Downloads section, etc.

Open CASCADE Technology Collaborative Development Portal at dev.opencascade.org remains unchanged, as the website exclusively devoted to the development of Open CASCADE Technology (OCCT). If you are an Open Source Community enthusiast, you are welcome to join us in our efforts in making OCCT even better.

We welcome you to share your thoughts and feelings about the new website replying to this forum topic. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated!

OPEN CASCADE Team

What are the criteria how the search functionality orders the results. On the old forum, the results were ordered by their date, so that the newest posts were the first results. I found this helpful because sometimes old posts are outdated. Would it be possible to add this criterion to the new website?

Dear jelle and Timo,

Thanks for your proposals.

the new forum is pretty cool. that said, being able to post formatted code would a nice thing to have ;)

For sure, it is a missing feature. We will look for a solution for that.

What are the criteria how the search functionality orders the results. On the old forum, the results were ordered by their date, so that the newest posts were the first results. I found this helpful because sometimes old posts are outdated. Would it be possible to add this criterion to the new website?

At the moment search engine sorts results considering several factors (keywords frequency, number of replies, etc.). The "date of publication" is just one of them, but not the only. In most cases it should give the most relevant results.
But you're right, we can improve the search. We will explore solutions that allow additional interactive sorting by different factors.

Best regards
FSR.

What I miss is a "mark all read" for topics...
