Dear All

I am just getting started with the new platform. How do I get to the questions on topics I am interested in? Just like the old SCN, where you follow the spaces of interest and quickly get the questions relevant to those areas.

Also where are the blogs? old SCN, I used to get the list blogs in easy clicks.

Thanks

Sandip

You can navigate to blogs from here:

Looking at your profile and the blogs, which you created, one possible place of interest for you will be this one:

http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=500983881501772639608291559920477

You may want to follow the tag or use the page for filtering.

How did I find that?

I used one of your blogs and clicked on this tag:

This led me to the following link:

https://blogs.sap.com/sap/82352407468693968798155/500983881501772639608291559920477/

The last part 500983881501772639608291559920477 seems to be the tech ID of the tag for UI development toolkit for HTML5. I simply substituted this value from the bookmarks I made before migration and I got the tag page URL:

http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=500983881501772639608291559920477

If you want to see only the questions, then there is a filter. Now the URL will be:

http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=500983881501772639608291559920477&tag=type:question

If you want to see only blogs, then it becomes

http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=500983881501772639608291559920477&tag=type:blog

This part of the site is awfully slow (switching from blogs to questions from the page filters takes 10+ seconds in total with fast internet connection (you have to clear the filter and then apply the new one), so if you want to switch fast - just type or paste the URLs directly and save some frustration.

in addition, using the search icon in the header top right area will lead you to the general search (based on HANA) which allows some extended search capabilities.

The old space content is now moved into the read-only archive:

https://archive.sap.com/ (Community header menu...Archive)

From here you can navigate to documents or discussions and find your 'space'

Dear Veselina

Thanks so much for your help.

So, when I follow a Tag or Tags - will I see questions/blogs related to those tags automatically load when I browse?

I am interested in the blogs and questions of few tags only.

Regards

Sandip
