Welcome to the new Planet PDF Forum.

The old Planet PDF Forum has served us well for 10+ years now but it is time to put it out to pasture and to move onto a newer more modern platform -- something that can serve the PDF community with distinction for the next 10 years.

The new Planet PDF Forum has all the whiz bang features that you would expect from a modern forum, including the ability to browse the site using your mobile and promote particular topics through social media websites. The spam protection options are also far superior to the old forum.

The old Planet PDF Forum will be archived and will remain accessible and searchable through Google and other search engines, so none of the content will be lost.

Thanks to the Planet PDF community for making the move to the new forum with us.

This new format is horrible. I loved the two side navigation of the old forum. It was so much easier to move between forums and see what was available within a particular forum. This adds more clicks/work & less visibility.
 
I am very, very, very disappointed.

Hi bkl,

Sorry to hear that you don't like the new layout.

Unfortunately retaining the old forum was not an option because the vendor no longer supports the forum software. We tried looking for a similar forum solution to the old forum but we couldn't find any (the use of frames has dropped off considerably in the past 5 plus years) that met our requirements.

We have to switch to a new forum solution now because the old solution is actually to old to run on modern servers, plus it's spam blocking options were very limited.

I hope you grow to like the new format!

Cheers,
- Rowan.

I like it.  Yes, there are differences, but change can be good.

What do you mean by sign-off - as in close your account?

Thanks for asking. I think I mean unsubscribe to a topic.
