Online Forums are discussion areas in which people are able to interact with each other by exchanging ideas, tips and discussing hot topics related to a theme.
The cLc Forums save information posted on a particular topic for other people to see at any time, this then creates a discussion environment.
The cLc forums will appear with all the other group resources in the top left hand Group Panel.
When setting up each cLc forum it is possible to configure the following restrictions:
Points to remember:
If no validation options are chosen, the default is all posts/replies require validation and thus need to be checked by a Group Owner or Editor before going live.
The Group Visibility restrictions will over-ride any group resource restrictions (including the forums) if set to a higher level.
All posts must sit in a topic. Therefore you will need to create a topic before any users can post comments. We also recommend that the Group Owners or Editors post the first comment stating clearly what the forum discussion requirements are.
