Forums are organizational units that group topics within the site. You cannot post directly to a forum; you must first enter a topic and post your message there.
In order to post to a forum topic, you will Start a New Conversation (or thread).
This is an example of a forum. The forum title will appear in bold and in a larger font than the topic titles indented beneath it.
This is an example of a forum topic. Select the topic title to access that topic.
Starting a new conversation is the same thing as starting a new thread. After selecting Start a New Conversation, the message composition window will appear.
Type in the Message field. This field allows use of the Rich Text Editor.
Note: The message field will keep track of the word count in the lower right corner.
