If you missed the announcement in Tips&Tricks - the ArchiGuide is revamped as of today, take a look!

the new archiguide is so much better!
just a minor point, there is no difference between the 'problems categorized by archicad versions', ac 8 & ac 8.1. i think specific ac8.1 topics should be listed since it is a new release. beisdes that minor glitch it is well organized.
thanks again gs!

Well, it will be so much better...

Right now, the wrong information (well, too much information) is being retrieved when you click on a link. For example, clicking on DXF/DWG or Hardward Protection returns dozens of articles having nothing to do with either. You may notice when retrieving 8.1 topics that there are a bunch of 7.0 topics in there, too...

As this new system went 'live' on a Budapest Friday afternoon, I imagine we will not see things fixed until next week.

Everyone should make it a point to visit ArchiGuide at least twice a week.

Not only has GS fixed the glitches above ... but new articles are being posted almost daily with great tips and bug workarounds.

I especially like that the most recent articles have links at the top of the main ArchiGuide page - making it easy to see what's new, if you visit often enough.

Great resource.

Karl

P.S. You may need to hit the 'refresh' button on your web browser to get the latest updated links to show if you visit frequently.

karl,
i agree gs has done a great job getting archiguide tweaked.
imho, the 8.1 link should just show 8.1 articles. title could be issues related to 8.1 forward. 8.1 is not a minor release, info directly related to it would be of the greatest value to me. breaking out pm 3.0 & pm 3.1 direct topics would be great also.

Karl, you can also create a "watcher" that will tell you when the pages change... http://www.watchthatpage.com sends me an email when there is something changed on the main archiguide page

Cool idea ... but do they pass your email address on to spammers? Maybe instead we can ask GS to post a message here whenever something is new?

I've been using their service for a long time, and I hadn't any spam increase at that time...

A new forum called "Archiguide" with New tips upload logging would be great...

What we're after, Djordje, is a way to not have to check ArchiGuide every day to see what's new, before something else new replaces the "latest five articles" list there.

All it would take is for Akos and company to have their own forum here onto which to post a new topic every time a new ArchiGuide article is added. (Is there a way to restrict a forum so that only they can start a new thread, but others can reply?) We'd all then be notified of the new material (if we're using the 'messages since last logon', or 'messages over the past xx hours', method of accessing archicad-talk ... and we'd have a thread per topic to comment on the archiguide articles. If it sounds like an OK idea to you, could you email him a link to this thread?

Thanks!

Dear Archi-Talkers,
Since we post new articles into ArchiGuide quite frequently we wouldn’t like to spam this forum with the flood of continuous announcements. That is why we suggest you visit the site whenever you need info about a certain topic. If you want to read all articles you can go in a chronological order on this page: http://www.graphisoft.com/support/archicad/archiguide/all.html

So we'll have to setup a notification in our browser... for Firebird user, create a bookmark to the address above, then open the bookmark's properties, set the scheduler option and the notification method... Firebird will tell you whenever the pages has changed...

Hi Marta,

Good to see you posting here - thank you for your other help in the past.

Thanks! I never realized that that page was chronological - that solves my problem. (Perhaps there could be a note at the top of the page to indicate that the list is chronological with newest at the top?... or better, could the list on that page be in a table, with the date of the article in one column and the title in another?)

Thanks!
