Lets say that I have a question that crosses several communities...specifically a question on customized skins, relating to InstallScript projects.

If I place it only in InstallShield x, InstallScript projects, only those people who are using X, and viewing that comunity will see my question. If I want to get more possible responses, from anyone who uses InstallScript, specifically customized skins, then I have to post the thread in X, DevStudio, and at least one more community, (as customized skins started with V7?)

How to get around this?

Thanks

Lou

As you've pointed out, there is no way to have a post be listed across forums. This is a limitation of the software we use (due to the design of the app) and I'm not sure if even in the latest version it can be done. (it would require a massive overhaul to their internal structure)
So you would either need to re-post your query to all applicable forums or post a single one intended as the reply point, and your other posts would start the question and include a link to the "main" so persons can reply by clicking through the link.

PS. I moved this to the community feedback forum as it pertains to this site, not the main website.
