Not so much a bug report, however here are my observations:

1) I like the new skin...very modern looking
2) Having the 'glossary' viewable by users is a good move
3) Via CP backups and groups are a long awaited feature!

Now for suggestions if they can be implimented:

1) The panel for what you'd like to do (when viewing an article...the one with the rating, email, etc)...can the text be smaller, similar to prior AKB? It seems too big...maybe arial font with about 9 or 10pt? I know we can do this via CSS but it would be nice out of the box

2) Also via that panel...is there any talk about adding a 'favorites' to this? Similar to the 'windows' skin with the prior AKB but with skins like these? It would be fantastic...also maybe like how AL handles 'to read' and 'recently read'. Not sure exactly how it would go with AKB but favorites is a very important thing with a knowledgebase IMHO

Once again a great product and great upgrades...you all rock!

Also...what is the 'manage subscribers' option via the CP? Can users subscribe to questions somehow or something?

Hi Alan,

Users sure can. It's just disabled in the online demo.

Oh ok great! So they can, for example, subscribe to a particular article so when it's updated they are notified?

I had another question...on the 'default' NX2 skin, the search and categories 'boxes' (look very nice btw) seem like they won't fit into a 800px wide website...is this so or can it?

Thanks for the quick reply! Do you have a possible release date yet?

Hi Alan thanks for the feedback. You were right about the width it was a little too big so we have resized that down.

No release date yet but it shouldn't be too long. Just waiting on a little more feedback from people about the beta to iron out as many bugs as possible before release.

You are right about subscribers being notified when an article is updated.

All templates have the favorites feature now? Am I allowed to be this excited first thing in the morning???? You guys rock...I have never bought from a company that is constantly making their products better and adding more value to them (such as adding devedit to the products, etc.)!

Can't wait to upgrade my copy!
