    Separate major versions forums

    Jérôme Jadoulle Newbie

      Hello!

       

      As what version 3 and version 4 of Richfaces are somewhat quite different in the way they propose their functionality, wouldn't it be a good idea to separate the forums, or at least make 2 sub-sections or something?

       

      I mean, I am currently searching for solutions to problems regarding RichFaces 4, and doing so, everything related to version 3 is automatically discarded.

       

      It's just a suggestion of course and my own opinion but It might help the community to have this separation.  Maybe something to think about...

       

      Anyway, thank you for the hard work!

          This is not a bad idea - I need to think on it and would like to get some other opinions on it.

           

          If we did this I would suggest having a RichFaces 3.X subspace and have the Richfaces space be for 4.0 discussions. 

           

          RichFaces ( 4.0 specific )

             - RichFaces 3.X ( 3.X specific )

             - RichFaces Development

                    - RichFaces Team Meetings

           

          Any other thoughts or suggestions?

           

          -Jay

            Yeah. The idea is very good. Especially it should help not to ask question "What are you using?" every time =)

            But the problem is that noone can split already created threads by RF version. It can take too much time. So what should we do with topics we already have?

              No big deal. Existing Richfaces 4.x would still remain there in Richfaces 3.x forum. Anyway currently no one stops to open question in wrong forum and it is not even moved to right forum by Admin.

               

              So I think, this idea can be implemented as soon as possible.

                Aman,

                Jérôme obviously wanted to have a way to find only 4.0 related info. But how can the separation help him if he anyway will have to look in old forum because too many questions are already answered there.

                P.S. I think that problem might be solved by using of correct tags. Because all the discussions for 4.0 must theoretically have the same tag. =) The only problem that it definetly does not work as it's supposed to.

                P.S.S. I think that in case of separating all the articles should also be split.
