A Forum can be viewed in one of two contexts: Tree View or List View. This choice remains in effect until the user changes it; it can be changed at any time.


Tree View


Tree View displays the thread starter messages and their reply messages. Users can expand and collapse threads by using either the Expand All or Collapse All functions or by using the plus/minus icons next to each starter message. If a thread starter message has unread responses, then the thread starter message is displayed in bold if collapsed. The screen shot below displays an example of the Tree View in a Discussion Forum:

List View


The List View presents the list of threads in a tabular format. The screen shot below displays an example of the List View in a Discussion Forum:
