New TechRepublic forums are live, with a new look and improved layout

One thing that hasn't changed: forums are still the place to get advice, share your knowledge, brainstorm, and enjoy the camaraderie of your IT peers.

Since TechRepublic's launch in 1999, our members have been at the center of everything we do, from our how-to tips and best practices advice from real-world IT professionals to our technical Q&A and discussion forums. Over the past few months, we've been giving the TechRepublic forums a makeover, and we're happy to announce that the improved version is now live.

Here are some of the more noticeable changes:

New look
The forums have a fresh new design, from the image in the header to the font types, to the coloring.

Categories with sub-forums
We've made it easier to find discussions. Have a question about Windows? You can find all discussions about Windows in our new Windows forum. Have a tip or trick to share with the community? There's a tips and tricks forum for that.

Post types such as discussions, questions, idea, rant and more
Now you can mark your new post by type — discussion, question, alert, praise, tip, rant or idea.

Simpler layout
As you move around the new forums, you will find a much simpler and easier design to navigate between the community pages.

Watercooler is now After Hours
This is the forum for all discussions non-business-tech-related. It's the place to hang out, kick off your shoes and just shoot the breeze with your peers.

So, take a look around, kick the tires, and tell us what you think.
