The Topic View
Once a specific topic has been selected, a list of its posts is displayed. A topic with a large number of posts may split them up across pages. A member can choose the number of posts to be displayed per page from their profile. Some forums may also provide next and previous links to allow quick navigation between topics.
A topic usually looks something like this:
Topic: Topic Subject (Read x times)
Here is the text of the message, which is ultimately what we're all here for!
Tab menus are displayed along the top and bottom of each page, which makes participating in a topic easy. The tab menu may contain the following, depending on the forum's configuration.
Usually, the list of posts in the current topic is displayed vertically with the oldest post at the top. A member may reverse this order by modifying their profile. Each post in the list is split into two sections. The left section contains information about the post author, while the right section contains the post itself.
While these are the most common elements for a post when viewing a topic, a member may choose to hide many of them from their profile.
