Create New Category

Type the new category name in the text area provided at the bottom of the table and click Create Category.

 NOTE: Only Admins can create, edit or delete categories.  Members are NOT able to create categories.  Category names should be broad in nature while topics are more specific.

NOTE:  Both Admins and members can add new topics to a category.

1. Click on the name of the category that you want to add a topic for in the Category column.

2. Click Add New Topic.

3. A subject and message are required for each new topic that is created.

4. Notify me of any posted responses via e-mail :  If this option is selected, the person creating the topic will receive an email each time someone posts a response to the message.  (This option may be changed when editing a topic by clicking on the available hyperlink.)

5. If you would like to see a preview of the post, click Preview. Once you are in the preview area, you will have the options to Edit or Post.  If you do not want to preview the message, simply click Post.

NOTE: Messages will appear immediately unless a flagged word is detected.  Admins will then need to approve the item before it is posted or delete the message.
