We just deployed several changes to the community to make it easier to find and follow conversations that interest you the most.

  • Added “following” category filter. You can now opt to only view followed categories. To use this feature, “follow” categories of interest, go to the “Categories” page (https://community.infosecinstitute.com/categories) and change your view to “Following” by clicking the “View” drop down box in the top left of your screen. This will apply a filtered view to your Category page

  • Added search function to every page

  • Reduced brightness of theme

  • Further expanded discussion post width; reduced margins and font sizes

  • Moved author bio information to left of post (instead of at the top) to improve discussion flow

In the works:

  • Adding a dark theme option. In the meantime, you might find this plugin helpful: https://darkreader.org/ (thanks, @draught

  • Adding “Certifications” field to author bio area at the discussion level

A huge thanks to everyone who provided feedback following our initial launch. Your comments have not gone unnoticed! If you have additional suggestions, please drop them on this thread. We look forward to your feedback and will continue to make improvements to the community overtime.
