About Forums Software
« on: June 01, 2007, 11:54:04 AM »
Discussion forums allow users (writers) to publish articles, essays, Q & A interviews and various information reviews etc. and keep in touch by way of replies from the on-line Community Labor network.

The concept of group forums (e.g. discussion boards) is similar to your C:/ hard drive organiation, that is a tree structure with branches or folders and sub-folders. In our case the structure is broken down into:

* A Forum - discussions centered around a central theme or topic. Each forum consists of multiple
     *
Threads (or Topics)- each thread is started (published) by a single user, concerning one idea or topic and can contain none to many         
          *Replies
- from various users of interest including the original author of the thread.

        
You can Search all forums for topics of interest before you post. This can save you time because you can find where an issue or question has already be posted. You can immediately find your topic and move on. If you don't find anything that fits your query, then go ahead and post a new Thread in the appropriate Forum.


Discussion Forums are created with the general Internet public in mind. What that means to you is that it is meant to be easy to use and understand by all internet users. So don't be afraid to use it and get acquainted with it.

* Currently there are 4   top level forums (discussion boards) available.:

* All About Us - Members and Administration

* Articles Or Comments From A Working Class Perspective

* Featured Writers

* RSS, Really Simple Syndication, Selected File Feeds From Linked Web Sites
