If you’re using forums similarly to how does (where a course may have many different forums all for a different subject or purpose) keeping order within the forums can be important so that enrolled users aren’t getting automatically notified by new threads that are not relevant.

  1. Thank you for your trick,
    I’m trying to create forums similarly to how does. But I’m not sure whether I did the right way or not. I wonder what kind of forum is using; discussion forum or else? Can you tell me how to create forums as By the way, can I embed pdf, slideshare and flash onto discussion forums?
