The good:

  • Dark mode
  • The new search

Not all “glaring”, but:

  • There is a lot of empty space on the landing page ( https://docs.graylog.org/ )
  • It’s a bit odd going to https://docs.graylog.org/ (labeled the “Documentation” page) and seeing a “Documentation” button/link (to https://docs.graylog.org/docs) right below it.
  • Graylog | Releases (linked to prominantly on the landing page) seems a bit bare. Maybe include highlights?
  • Really, really don’t like the smoothed and automatic scrolling w/ the sidebar @ https://docs.graylog.org/docs
  • It would be nice if the changelog pages had a more useful “On this page” section, or some other way to jump directly to a specific older release / major+minor.
  • Certain pages (e.g. changelogs, pipeline functions) are noticeably slow to load (currently some aren’t loading at all)
  • The sidebar shows an expandable “arrow” for pages that don’t have subpages
  • An “Expand all” for the sidebar @ https://docs.graylog.org/docs/ would be nice
  • The links to specific functions @ Functions - Processing Pipelines aren’t working
  • The changelogs are stale (missing 4.1.5 and 4.1.6)

Is GitHub - Graylog2/documentation dead now?

@dscryber
I was checking out the new site and came across this section.

Since there have been problems in the past with individuals installing Elasticsearch beyond version 7.10. I want to check it out. It took me to version 7.15
Perhaps have a new link to directing them version 7.10?

Thanks, Greg, I’ll check this out.

In the new docs site, I cannot find a way to view documentation on previous releases. On the old site, there was a dropdown menu at the bottom right of the left-hand TOC panel where I could view the docs for different versions. Is this feature missing, unavailable, or just hidden?

Are you referring to this?

No, that’s just the changelogs for each release. I can’t show you what I’m talking about because the old docs site doesn’t exist anymore, but basically you had a setup similar to Elastic’s documentation where you can view the entire documentation database as of a specific release. That way if my environment is 3.x for example, the 4.x documentation would not be relevant to me- I’d need to read the docs correlating to my specific 3.x version.

Hello,
My apologies you are referring to this?

https://archivedocs.graylog.org/en/3.0/

Not the original poster, but yes. This used to be possible by selecting the version in the lower-right corner of the sidebar.

Examples:
https://archivedocs.graylog.org/en/3.0/
https://archivedocs.graylog.org/en/3.3/
https://archivedocs.graylog.org/en/4.0/
https://archivedocs.graylog.org/en/4.1/
https://archivedocs.graylog.org/en/latest/

Not a big deal, but on mobile (Pixel 4A, latest Chrome) https://www.graylog.org/releases doesn’t show much initially (scrolling needed to see release info):

Having spent more time in the documentation-- there seem to be a number of formatting/encoding issues. For example, the commands and Docker Compose file contents @ Docker - Installing Graylog are invalid.
