Thread Channels

Members can create posts in thread channels. To create a post, click on the Start a Thread... section at the top of the thread channel.

Type your post in the text box, and format it by highlighting the text. You can bold, italicize, or underline text. You can also create headings and add links to your post.

If you type in a dash - and hit enter, it will automatically create bullet points. If you type in 1. and then the text, and then hit enter, it will continue with 2. (and so on).

Click on the embed button (to the far left of Post) to embed in your post. Click on the poll button (in the middle) to add a poll to your post. Click on the paperclip button to add an attachment.


Polls can be created in thread channels. Only one poll can be added to a post with up to 5 answers/options. To make the answers to a poll anonymous, click on the Anonymous Poll button to toggle it on.

Making it anonymous means that it will not show which members voted, however, it will show the results of the poll.

This is an example of how the poll will be displayed in threads:

If a poll is public, there will be text at the bottom that indicates the responses are public. Admins will see the View Responses button without having to vote. Click on View Responses to results.

Note: You can only vote once on a poll. After you've voted, you will be unable to change your vote.
