Forums User Manual
The post form is based off of (and uses some of the code from) the PhpBB post form, and it works in roughly the same way. To post to a conference, you must belong to one of the forum groups assigned to that conference (see below), or the conference must be set to allow anonymous post access.
The post form looks like this:
Click on the edit profile link on the front page of the forum to configure your user account. It's located in the footer at the bottom of the forum display (the conference list is grayed for the purposes of illustration):
The image below shows the profile screen. The top part of the page (Contact Information and Forum Information) is what other users can see when they look at your profile. Beneath those two sections are a series of fields that allow you to edit your profile.
The options that can be set here include:
After editing their account preferences, users should press submit to finalize the changes.
In some cases, forum administrators may choose to disable the user preferences functionality, in which case these options will not be accessible.
Forum administrators can select one or more users to act as moderators of a conference. When viewing a thread, moderators of the parent conference will have the options to edit and delete posts in that thread:
If you click on the delete button, you will be asked to confirm that you do, in fact, want to delete that post. Clicking on the edit button will bring up a view of the post form with the data for the post being edited in the fields. Edit the post as you like, and press the post message button when you're through. The system keeps track of how many times the post has been edited, although that information is not currently displayed anywhere (perhaps this could be an added feature down the road).
