Smilies

One of the great benefits of the site is the community features. The forums allow you to interact with other members.

There are two types of forums :

  • General - all St Michael and All Angels Beckwithshaw members are able to post messages
  • Group - only members of the group can view or post messages

The main forum page will display all the forums available to you with a summary of each forum and when the last post was made. You will then be able to open that forum by clicking on the forum name.

When you view a forum the threads will be displayed with the most recent first. You will quickly be able to identify which threads have had new posts added to them since you last visited by looking at the envelope next to the thread subject. If the envelope is closed No new posts then there have been no new posts to that thread. If the envelope is open New posts then either you have not read that thread, or a new posts has been made to it since you last looked at it.
