Hello Community! You will notice many changes in the look and feel of the DOG.community. We want to make your experience a little bit better! Here is what's new.
New Suggested Videos Widget: This new feature pulls our most popular videos through from our DOG.com video blog. This will make it easier for users to see which videos are currently trending on DOG.com !
LOGGING IN: Logging in to the community is now even easier! The connect feature with Dog.com on the login page/dialogue was fixed to improve the overall log in experience.
AUTO QUOTE:We think this change will make your Dog.community experience even better!
How it used to work: To include the original post in your reply you were required to use the Custom Text Editor. This feature was difficult to access in the previous version, requiring an extra click (plus it was not easy to find!).
How it will work: We are happy to announce that you will now be able to utilize the Post Reply button, which will automatically quote the post you are responding to. All you have to do is write your response!
If you would like to reply to a post but do not want the original post included, simply highlight the quote and delete it!
NEW FORUM VIEW: As you know, our goal at the DOG.community is to provide dog lovers with a place to learn and engage with others who have a passion for all things horse. To make your experience even better, we have made some changes to the format of our forum. When you enter our forum section you will see this:
All sections of the forum are broken up into subject areas that hold lively discussions and information. They are:
-Health & Grooming
-Nutrition & Exercise
- Training & Behavior
-News & Entertainment

-Rescue & Help
Within each of these sections on the left part of your screen, you will notice that there are subcategories. Within these subcategories, you will be able to read existing discussions as well as create new ones.
The right section provides community members a view of the last post that was contributed to this topic.
