Thread (message board)

Definition: A conversation on a subject with 1 or more posts. The first post is called the starter post. Each additional post is called a reply. It’s polite to make sure your new thread is appropriate for the topic's subject area. If not, our policy is to politely move the thread to the correct topic without drawing attention to the fact that it fit better in another topic.

Tip: Rich Editor: Spell checking

Spell checking is available in our rich editor for IE and Gecko based browsers such as Firefox and Safari. We use our rich editor in many areas of our community such as message boards, knowledge base, job postings, resumes, etc. For IE, there is an icon on the editor's toolbar. For Gecko based browsers such as Firefox and Safari, browser enabled spell checking is active. Spell checking is not available for Google Chrome. Currently Chrome's spell checking is not compatible with IFrames so you have spell checking OUTSIDE our editor.
