The Question has been closed for reason: too subjective and argumentative

I see that very few questions on this forum actually recieve answers, and that the content is almost useless as a searchable forum to look up past questions/answers (because there aren't any answers). The old OpenERP forum contained a lot of historical info and was very useful, so why do we now have this piece of crap odoo..... ??

And all the google links to old help info are broken because of the odoo domain change, so thank you very much for that.

rymes with 'stuck to my shoe.........'

Please respect the guidelines. This Q&A is not for rant or subjective questions. I closed your question. You should better part such message on community mailing list. To answer your question, 76% of the questions have an answer which is not bad for a community forum of that level of complexity. (And this ratio increased a lot since we launched this new forum)

We have made redirects for links on Google to jump to the right page of this forum, do you have an example where the link is not correctly redirected?

No I do not have a specific example to hand, just many hours of experience searching topics on google, and finding the majority of links are www.openerp.com/forum or help links, which redirect straight to an Odoo.com sales page.

Obviously, the old forum pages would potentially be of more help.


Kind regards
