Post to a Forum

How do I post to a forum topic?

Forums are organizational units containing 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 must Start a New Conversation or thread.

  1. Go to FORUMS.

    Select the FORUMS tool from Tool Menu in your site.

    Go to Forums.
