As more information is added to a SharePoint site, and users continue to contribute content, the sheer volume of blog posts and forum discussions can easily increase to an extent which makes it difficult for users to get relevant search results. Even surfacing existing helpful tips and tricks can become a challenge as new content is continually added to a site. For these reasons, I'm happy to announce the release of Community Central R1.1, featuring significant improvements in search capabilities. A related enhancement has its search engine integrating with FAST Search Server for SharePoint 2010 to enable users to take advantage of FAST Search Server's own features.
Further enhancements include:
- A new Upgrade Manager for R1.0 to R1.1 upgrades:
- Support for site collection creation using the Community Central Home site template.
- Updated scoring rule descriptions and additional scoring rules for improved statistics on user activities:
As always, our team is committed to making Community Central the most useful and beneficial platform for knowledge-sharing and social collaboration on SharePoint. We are always open to your feedback, and welcome your questions and comments in the Community Central forum.
