Discussion vs Overview Mode

May 14, 2012 5:53 AM

Hey Adobe folk -


In the various Premiere Pro forums that I frequent, it looks like there's a bit of inconsistency with the "discussion" and "overview" modes of viewing.  If I start at the top level of the Premiere forum and click on, say, the CS5, CS5.5, & CS6 section, it opens it defaulting to "overview" mode, as seen below:


If I read a post and then use the links at the top of the page to return to the forum menu:



It returns me to the right place, but it's in "discussion" view mode:



The rest of the Premiere forums are like that as well.  Is that intentional?

    Certainly. It is the new way of gently guiding you to use Discussion rather than Overview view.

    Jason, do you remember if you had Overview or Discussion set as your default tab before the update?


    When I follow your steps using the breadcrumb trail after reading a thread I go back to the Overview page, not to the Discussions page. Here are my steps:


    GO to the Premiere Pro CS forum:

    Click on one of the threads listed, such as

    Click on the Premiere Pro CS5, CS5.5, & CS6  link in the breadcrumb trail


    That takes me back to the Overview page that I started on.


    But if I click on the Discussions link at the end of the breadcrumbs, I do get to the Discussions page.

    It seems like they are somehow forcing Overview on initial visit. But once you are in a space your old default setting is applied to the breadcrumb items.

    I have the same weird behavior, even if I did set discussions as my preferred view for many forums.

    It's usually the same here. I say "usually," as some forums DO open in Discussion View Mode, some of the time, but most do not. Discussion is my default for all popular forums. Sometimes that does come up, but sometimes it does not. Might work for half a day, and then reverts to Overview,  for maybe the next 2 - 3 views of that forum. It seems to have a mind of its own.
