  1. On the home page, make the search suggestions dynamic and/or partially based on past searches

    On the home page of PI Square, regardless of which device I use, or whether or not I am logged in, or whether or not I am connected to a VPN, I always get the same suggestions. See the attached picture.

    Please fix the search bar on PI Square's home page. It should behave more like the search bar on the page that appears after performing a search in the sense that its suggestions seem to be personalized. When I am logged out, I get the same suggestions in the search page search bar on different devices with different public…

  2. Address the warnings given by the "Developer tools" of Microsoft Edge

    PI Square gives >99 warnings in the "Developer tools" of Microsoft Edge for the home page alone. Please check the "Developer tools" for multiple pages of PI Square and fix any issues that Microsoft Edge reports to ensure that best practices for compatibility, accessibility, security, etc. are being followed.

  3. Remove "Online Course: Programming in PI Web API" and "PI Integrator for Microsoft Azure" from the "Topics" page

    The course "Programming in PI Web API" is retired and has been replaced with "Using PI Web API from Beginner to Advanced", so there is no need to have it clutter up the "Topics" page (https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/topiccatalog). To be clear, I am not suggesting that the posts under this topic should be removed.

    The PI Integrator for Microsoft Azure seems to have been replaced with the PI Integrator for Business Analytics based on the release announcements linked below. Also, the "PI Integrator for Microsoft Azure" topic on PI Square does not have any associated posts yet, so it is…

  4. Enable OCSP stapling on pisquare.osisoft.com

    OCSP stapling means the web server sending the certificate revocation status with the certificate to the users' browsers, which avoids the need for the browsers to contact the certificate authority to get this information.

    OCSP stapling will make the website load faster and protect the users' privacy from the certificate authority. Please add support for it.

    The link below can be used to check if OCSP stapling has been enabled (among other things):

  5. On the "Topics" page, list online courses in the same order as in the learning paths

    Currently, the online courses are listed in a seemingly random order on the "Topics" page (https://pisquare.osisoft.com/s/topiccatalog), which makes it difficult to find a particular course. Please list the courses in the same order as they appear in their learning paths on OSIsoft Learning (https://learning.osisoft.com/).

  7. Delete blog posts with equivalent KB articles or that are old, unengaging beta/release announcements

    There are >1300 blog posts on PI Square, and most of these are from the early 2010s when vCampus/PI Square was much more active. About 2% of all blog posts is old beta and release announcements with little engagement and information that is now largely irrelevant. Please delete these blog posts to make it easier to find the blog posts that still matter. Please especially delete such blog posts for products that are being retired (mostly PI ProcessBook and PI ACE).

    Also, if a blog post has an equivalent KB article, then the blog post should be deleted so that…

  8. Make italicized text more easily distinguishable from regular text

    The attached picture compares regular text to italicized text. You can barely tell the difference even when you zoom in closely. Please make the italic formatting more pronounced so that it is easier to distinguish between regular text and italicized text.

  9. Add "Draft" as an option to the "Audience" dropdown menu of blog posts

    The old PI Square allowed users to save draft versions of blog posts, which were not visible to anyone other than the author. This allowed users to save changes to their blog post without publishing it.

    In the current PI Square, you must take great measures to hide your blog post until it is ready. My current strategy is:
    1. Write the text portion in Notepad++.
    2. Paste the text portion into a blog post set to be published far in the past (so that it will appear last in the list of blog posts) and with the audience set…

  10. Add Superscript and subscript to formatting options

    Especially in blog posts where adding footnotes helps keep the main content from getting too bloated, this would be very helpful.

  12. Can we please also get Syntax Highlighting for blog posts?

    I was under the impression that Syntax Highlighting is a general feature and now learn that blog posts don't have it because "blog" is an adopted child.
    Can we please treat "blog" like the rest of the family?

  13. Better use of white space on PI Square

    The PI Square feed appears to be portrait formatted, leaving a lot of white space left and right hand side, especially when using a wide screen monitor. As a result we often see undesired line breaks killing our attempts to create nice looking posts.
    PI Square should recognize the amount of horizontal pixels available and make use of them. Attached screenshot illustrates the problem.

  14. Allow inline posting of images

    Just like it was possible with the Jive platform, supporting in-line pasting of images is very important both in 'Questions' and blog posts.

  15. Bring back the Company field of user profiles, please!

    As this forum mainly consists of professional users, it is vital that you are able to profile the company you work for - as part of your user profile. Please bring back the ability to display the company you work for - and please urge users to add this info to their profile!

    It is always nice to know who you are talking to - not necessarily in person, but the company name is important. As a partner I've picked up a lead or two by identifying products and solutions we sell in our part of the world, but most…

  16. Add Button to Allow access to Source HTML on Questions, Posts, & Blogs

    Given the lack of formatting options in PI Square, would it be possible to add a menu a button for posts, questions, and blogs that gives authors access to the source HTML? This would allow the full range of HTML options for custom formatting and, while more cumbersome than menu buttons, would help alleviate the need for them.

  18. Add Code Block Option for Blogs

    Code blocks have been added to questions & posts but not to blogs, and the need is the same. Adding this request specifically for blogs since the other request was marked Completed and will no longer accept votes.

  19. Remove our ability to delete others' comments on blog posts other than our own

    Currently, anybody (or at least I) can delete comments on any blog post. Please fix this so that users can delete only their own comments or others' comments on their own blog posts.

  20. When viewing a question on its own page, expand long comments by default

    Currently, from the home page, we can view questions on a separate page by clicking on the time that the question was posted. When we do this, I feel that long comments should be expanded by default. That is, we should never see the option to "Expand Post". The option to show "More answers" when there are many comments is fine, though.
