Forum Topics

STEP 2:
Create a topic

Creating a topic and responding to a post is now as easy as creating an email.  All topics and posts are located inside both forums, so if you have not already done so please navigate to the Forums tab and then click on AMAC® Bulletin Board

Once you are inside the AMAC® Bulletin Board you will see all of the topics for this forum.  These topics are arranged by date, so the most recently created topics or the most recently responded to topics are listed at the top.

As you can see topics are listed by most recent reply or creation date and older topics that have not been replied to are further down in the list.  Before you create a topic, there are two choices of topics to choose from.  You have, Discussion and Question.  If you are wanting to ask a question, simply click Question.  If you are wanting to discuss, comment about, or inform everyone of something simply click Discussion

Once you have reached the discussion/question creation page, simply type in a title of your choice for "Topic:" (that pertains to your question/discussion) and ask the question, or start the discussion in the "Question:" or "Text:"

Once you are done with your comment/question click on "Post".  This will post your topic on the forum and you will be able to see it at the top of the list. 





STEP 3: Reply to a Topic

Congratulations on creating your first topic!  You are now ready to reply to posts and topics.  To do this you will want to click on the topic you wish to reply to.  Now before you reply, you have two options when relying.  You may either, reply to the original question or comment, or you may reply to another post.  Once you reach the page you will see a series of links above the first post that say, "Reply", "Printable", "Threaded", "Larger", "Smaller".  This reply link above the first post will allow you to reply to the original question or comment.  To reply to an existing posts later in the conversation, there is another "Reply" link inside each post's box as seen here...

To reply to the original message or another posts simply click Reply.  This will take you to a similar page as the topic creation page where you will enter what you wish to say and click Post

Once you click post, your reply post will be located at the bottom of all previous posts.  If you do not see your post after you have clicked Post, your post is most likely on a different page.  To go to the next page simply click "Next" in the bottom right hand corner of the page. 

Congratulations, you now know how to reply to posts and topics!
