Working with Discussion Boards

The discussion board feature provides topic discussions on your website. A site or membership user with Add Topic permission creates a topic and posts a starter question. Site visitors can then reply. Ektron supports an unlimited number of discussion boards. A discussion board consists of a hierarchy. The following example shows the hierarchy with sample data, to illustrate how each element is used.

On the website, if you click a discussion forum, its topics appear. If you click a topic, its posts appear.

In the Workarea, a discussion board appears as a top-level folder () in the folder structure. Forums appears under them. If you click a discussion board, its subjects and forums appear in the right panel.
