How do I post to a forum?
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.
Go to Forums.
Select the Forums tool from Tool Menu in your site.
Choose a forum.
Select a topic within the forum.
Click Start a New Conversation.
This button is located at the top of the page, below the title of the course. Starting a new conversation is the same thing as starting a new thread.
After you click the Start a New Conversation button, the message composition window will appear.
Enter a message.
This description box allows the use of Rich Text Editor.
Note: The message box will keep track of word count in the lower right corner.
