Today I tried to find certain old post on the Xilinx forum.
Goggle has found it in their database, but the link leads to nowhere and is finally redirected to
There is no forum available any more.
Does it mean that all the knowledge created by the users is lost forever?
If I remember it happened once in the past with Xilinx forum.
Have they done it again?
That link works for me. They've changed the front page, but you
can click on the word DISCUSSIONS to get the previous look of the
forums. When you just land on the page it selects FEATURED instead
Thank you very much, Gabor.
It would be a real disaster if the whole knowledge base created by Xilinx u
sers and employees had disappeared forever.

They've broken much, much more.
Here's an official list of broken stuff: (it doesn't include everything, fo

Unfortunately, no. These posts are just as lost to me as they are to you.
My suggestion is that you write a carefully worded post to the announcement
s board indicating exactly how this migration has affected you and your abi
lity to get work done. We are actively trying to apply pressure to Xilinx t
o mitigate the effects of this disastrous migration, but need the support o
f the community to get our voices heard.
If there is a particular post you are looking for I might be able to find i
t, but even knowing how some posts were written there are some that I can't
find; there are still some posts (apparently 5000 topics) that never got m

It is a sad statement on the nature of the FPGA commercial interests when t

hey relented and restored service... for a while. Then it was shut off per
manently. Here I expect the interest is much greater and the loss to Xilin
x more significant. The question is do you have an in house champion? I t
hink that is what it 's going to take.
