How do I post to a forum topic?
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.
Starting a new conversation is the same thing as starting a new thread.
After you click Start a New Conversation, 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.
Click Add attachments. (Optional)
If desired, there is an option to upload attachments to the conversation. Click Add attachments to browse for and select your file.
