Forum

Module “Forum” allows user administrate forum’s topics and posts. Module includes three parts: “Topics”, “Posts” and “Settings”. Topic is the initial post added by visitor or user. Post is the reply of visitor or user to the topic.

Settings

On this page user can choose if the forum is with moderation or not. If the forum is with moderation, the topics are not displayed on the website before user marks the particular topic to be public.

Topics

  • choose page, where the topic will be uploaded to;
  • choose if the topic is hidden. Hidden topics are not displayed on the website;
  • choose if the topic is closed. When the topic is closed, visitors can not post any more posts on this topic.
  • choose if the topic is with moderation. Posts added to topics with moderation will not be displayed on the website before user marks them as public;
  • insert name of the topic;
  • insert text;
  • modify user’s (author’s) name.
