Discussion List

Discussion List
The discussion list allows website visitors to post comments and discuss topics. It's also known as a message board or a bulletin board.

It maintains a list of "threads" or discussion topics. Logged in users have the ability to read threads and submit their own comments.

Note: This is a feature that is only available in the Multi-User and Advanced Commerce licenses of Invisible Gold.

Creating a Discussion List
Click NEW to create a new page and choose Discussion List. Give the page a name and some text and click save. It is very important to set the security to give the right to Add Children to whomever should have the right to submit comments on the discussion list.

List of Threads
The new discussion list will show a list of threads. At the bottom there will be a link to start a new thread, or a Login button if a logged in user doesn't have rights to submit threads.

The threads are listed 10 per page and there is a link to switch to more pages. Thay are listed with the newest (or most recently responded to) threads at the top.

As an administrator, you also the ability to delete threads when you are logged in.

When you click on a thread, you see the responses listed right below. A long thread will therefore be a long page to scroll through.

On the left, you'll see the name of the person that wrote the comment, the time they posted it, and a delete button if you are the administrator.

Down at the bottom you see a box where you can type your response or a login button if you don't have the right to Add Children.
