Unlike the ‘old’ forum in which topics on a variety of subjects are raised one after the other, The Lee Forum 2020 has a hierarchical structure.
At the top level are categories of which we have two: village forums and HS2. The major difference between the two categories is who can see the posts within them – only residents and those with a close association to The Lee will be able to see posts in the village forum, whereas the HS2 forum may be opened to a wider audience.
Below categories are forums – rather than a single forum with lots of topics as in the ‘old’ forum, there are several each with a different focus. For example, within the village forums category, there are forums for Wanted and For Sale, Lost and Found etc.. There are two reasons for this:
- users will be able to choose to receive notification emails for some forums and not others, reducing the amount of mail for subjects in which they aren’t so interested
- it will be simpler to browse to find an old post on a particular subject
Within each forum are topics: these are the different subject threads that users want to discuss.
Finally within each topic are replies
In some parts of the User Guide, topics and replies are generically referred to as posts.
