Adding a Topic to an Existing Forum

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

To ensure the above procedures are used, posts by new members in the Suggestion Box will be held for moderation.

There are over 240,000 members at OnlineBookClub.org. Following the proper procedures to get help or make suggestions actually helps us help you much faster.
Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box, as we prefer to deal with Review Team issues privately. If you have an issue or question related to the Review Team, please first check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher) or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer). If you are a reviewer and you have a suggestion, you can post that in the special private Review Team Support Forum.

Adding a Topic to an Existing Forum

Post by MsH2k » 30 Sep 2019, 09:21

How do you add a topic to an existing forum? I’d like to add a discussion topic to a forum that currently just has reviews of the book.
Thanks for any help!

Which forum is it? You click on the "New Topic" button at the top.

It’s for Of Illusions and Ink Spills. It has no current topics, only everyone’s reviews. There is no “New Topic” button.

There is no such forum. If you meant the reviews under the Volunteer Reviews Forums, it isn't a discussion forum, and you can't open new topics there. This forum is only for Volunteer Reviews, not discussions. You can comment on the reviews there, though.

Got it. So you only have topics for the books that are BOM? Sorry to keep asking these questions - I’m still figuring out my way around. Thanks for your help.

The volunteer review forum is specifically for reviews by new Review Team members. Some are for books that were/are BOTM, some aren't.

The rest of the forums have a mix of Review Team reviews and member opened threads. :tiphat:
