What is it?
The Community Forum is an integrated discussion board within MemberClicks. The Community Forum allows your members to engage in online discussions with each other, subscribe to their favorite topics and it can be moderated if necessary. Topics can also be organized into Categories. Common Community Forum topics are Conference News, Legislative News, Board Member Forum, Student Member Forum, etc.
The Board Index will display a list of categories with the topics that belong to each category.
Only the categories and topics the user is able to see, based on group permissions and published/unpublished status, will appear in the Board Index. The Board Index will also display a summary of the activity on the Community Forum in the Board Statistics area.
Latest Posts will display the 25 most recent posts to the Community Forum.
Forum Profile allows users to customize their forum profile.
The Name and User Name fields can be edited in the user's main database record. The forum profile will count the total number of posts by that user as well as the number of Karma votes. The user can also specify their location and signature which will appear with their posts.
The My Posts area will display a list of all of the current user's posts, the forum in which they were posted, as well as the date of the post and the total number of views.
The My Posts area also gives the user direct access to manage his or her subscriptions and favorites.
The Pending Posts section allows forum moderators to view and approve or delete pending posts.
Alternate Color Schemes
The Community Forum can be displayed in a color scheme to match the look and feel of your MemberClicks website. If you would like your Community Forum's color changed, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details on the color you would like and we'll gladly make the change.
