As mentioned in Atanas' August 2020 GM Update, Embarcadero is moving off of the Idera community platform to a whole new Embarcadero only blogging platform.
We are migrating all the existing blog posts there, so no content will be lost (famous last words I know). We may even be able to dig up some old blog posts that were lost in the previous move. One of the big changes on this new blogging platform, besides being based on WordPress, which powers the majority of the world's blogs, is it will have a multi-langue solution baked into the basics of the platform. So you can go and only view the posts in your spoken language of choice.
We are also looking to work with a number of existing communities that are already doing a better job of providing a peer support forum. Previously, we were effectively competing with these other communities, which doesn't make sense because they are functionally better. Our goal is to help those communities grow, which, in turn, will lead to the existing community on here shrinking. Community is important to us, but we don't need to own the platform everyone communicates on.

Agree with Christophe, as argument : https://www.tradoc.fr/en/french-around-the-world/
de facto I know about 2 french site the one Christophe indicate, active (i am one of the moderator)
and https://codes-sources.commentcamarche.net/source/list/delphi-pascal-7/last (adherent but not using often)
May I suggest you to add this one https://www.developpez.net/forums/f15/environnements-developpement/delphi/
in a French section of this page https://blogs.embarcadero.com/community/
From looking at the new blogging platform, it seems like this is more a 3rd party advertising site than an "embarcadero" blog. As of today, 7 of the 10 posts on the landing page are written by "Muminjon" promoting commerial components of his company WINSOFT...
I generally like the idea having 3rd party and Embarcadero posts in the same blog (as with the "old" blog), but if this is misused as a marketing site, then I don't see any real value in it...
Hi Jim. So I just jumped over to the link you've provided. Can you explain in a little more detail how the forums are to be used and where exactly are they? What I'm seeing are a bunch of blog posts and ads for other products.
If I click on the community link, it takes me to a list of 3rd party sites, so how is it supposed to be organized, especially with finding existing questions and discussions?
Can you elaborate a little on using the new pages. Thank you very much Jim.
Multilingual support is very nice, but choosing a language means, for example, Japanese users need to switch between Japanese and English to find new articles. If possible, we would appreciate it if you could provide a "all languages" option to save us the trouble of switching between them.Please consider this option.
Please don't forget there is no C++ Builder community. The only one I know that comes close is SO, but what is allowed there is very strict and can hardly be called a community.
