Work with forum topicsYou can edit, move, and delete forum topics, and mark topic content as inappropriate.
Before you beginThe actions that you can perform on a stand-alone forum topic depend on your role in the forum and whether you created the topic. The Forums administrator has access to work with all content in the Forums application. Only forum owners and topic authors can edit, move, and delete forum topics. Anyone with access to a forum can mark content in that forum as inappropriate.
In a community forum, any member of the community can reply to a forum topic or flag a forum topic as inappropriate. Only topic authors and community owners can edit, move, and delete community forum topics and topic responses.
Edit forum topics
Edit a topic to make changes to it after you have added it to a forum. For example, you might want to update the title of the topic or attach a file to the topic.
Moving forum topics
After adding a discussion topic, you can move it to a different forum if you think it would fit more appropriately into that forum. When you move a discussion topic from one forum to another forum, any responses to the topic are also moved to the new forum.
Delete forum topics
Ensure that the content of your forum is meaningful and useful by deleting topics that are irrelevant or that contain inappropriate content.
Delete responses to forum topics
If you change your mind about a response that you've posted to a forum topic, you can delete it from the discussion thread.
Flag forum content as inappropriate
If you notice that a forum contains content that might be considered inappropriate, you can flag the content to alert the forum moderator. Any Forums user can flag forum content as inappropriate.
