Connect 2.2 Preview

October 11th, 2006 by Patrick S

Is finally here! Go to and take a look around. You can do most of the things you can on the main Connect site, although you’ll find that the available programs list is pretty limited. None of the feedback or sites from the production site are available here, with the exception of the Connect demo site.

Take a look around and see what you think. After you sign in, click the “Manage My Profile” link at the bottom and fill out your profile data in order to be able to submit feedback. Keep in mind that this is a beta site, so the feedback isn’t going to be processed or resolved. Don’t enter your real bugs here- or do, but enter them on the real Connect site as well!

 After you’ve taken a look around, if you have any comments you can file a feedback or suggestion form on the main Connect site at

A couple of notes about the beta site; some issues were found after the deployment to the beta site and have already been resolved internally.

  • File uploads may not work correctly with Firefox 1.5. This is known and has been corrected in a later internal build.
  • Feedback should work with both Opera and Firefox, although some display elements may not be correctly placed or visible in non-IE browsers. These issues have been largely eliminated in our internal builds.
  • After attaching files, you may notice that the “attached files count” on the Feedback Details page always remains 0. This has been corrected in our latest builds.

    re: Firefox- File uploads will work correctly with Firefox 1.5 (and Opera). The note was merely to let people know that they don’t work properly in the beta version that’s on the site. After propping that version to beta, the Firefox issue was discovered and has since been corrected.

    Indeed thats what I read, when connect V2 is made public it will work with FF/opera etc

    Oh and hey Corey (the brains behind the connect team) Connect must have some serious coding in it.

    Patrick – I’ve heard that the overall coding on the site (the pages, the code, not including downloads and images) is only 20MB in size. I mean… if that’s true, my God that’s a tiny size for a huge website – don’t forget there’s a huge backend management system for it on CorpNet.

    That sorta really wouldnt suprise me… I mean code is only text
