Hey Folks!

The Adafruit Forums have undergone some major updates! Most everything should work as you remember, but there are a few things we thought would be helpful to point out right away.

RSS is a little different

If you use RSS feeds to follow activity on various forums and topics, your existing feeds should continue working as before.

If you want to make new feeds, get acquainted with the new Smartfeed interface.

There are some rough edges

We'll be working on updates to smooth out visual inconsistencies, find and fix bugs, and more over the next few weeks. Watch this space for updates!

Thanks for your patience and pardon our dust! 😅
