What you can see under the introduction text to the forum depends on which of the three options you have chosen in the Forum type field while creating the forum.
- If you have chosen A single simple discussion, you will see the text you have written at the 'Forum introduction' space while creating the forum as the first post of the discussion: there will be a heading, which is the forum name, the information about the author and its date. Below you will find the replies that have been posted (if there are any).
- If you have chosen Standard forum for general use, you will see the introduction text in a separate space above the discussion field, in which you will the information such as the title of the discussion (which means the forum's title), its author, the number of replies and the date of the last post.
- Choosing Each person posts one discussion the view will be basically the same as in the previous case, the only difference being the 'Add a new discussion' option. Viewing a forum page, you will see the text you have written at the 'Forum introduction' space while creating the forum, and, if there are any, the discussions that have been started.
In all cases, above the introduction to the forum you will find options concerning subscription to the forum as well as the 'Update the forum' button and the 'Jump to' field, with which you can 'jump' to any part of the course.
