Rob, I see two issues.
First and importantly, you said you imported all the historical data but it doesn’t look like FILES that were attached to the old forum posts are available. That’s a real shame because sometimes people posted very useful files.
For example, in this thread (http://clovertech.infor.com/forums/topic/921-db_vista-user-id-check-failed-adt_serviceclient/) Terry Kellum seems to say he posted a Quick Guide file with his post. However there’s no such file in the new forum.
I’m sure there are the standard responses about files being out of date, etc. But in many cases I’d much rather look at an old file, even with caveats, than no file at all – which is just frustrating in its omission.
Second, why is there no way to reply to old threads?
Many times things that were posted years ago are still relevant. In the same example I posted above, even though it was posted in 2015 the error still occurs today, and I’d like to contribute to the main thread so that someone else who has the issue can see my response.
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a way to reply to that thread. At the bottom of the page all it says is “The forum ‘Cloverleaf’ is closed to new topics and replies”, which again is disappointing.
While I understand that the old forums were deprecated and finally nixed by the security team, they were better in at least two ways: They kept old files posted by users, and you could reply to a thread even years later (which I frequently saw happen, by the way).
