Tips and Tricks for Using Discourse

Hi RWOT people! Please be patient with us as we learn how Discourse works. Replies to this topic should be tips for how to understand and use Discourse the tool.

When you land at you will see a list of “Topics” sorted by most recent - these are “discussion threads” in bulletin board style.

Each Topic can be categorized (Support, etc) - click the “Categories” word to show all the categories along with a list of the latest Topics sorted by posting date.

Each Topic shows how many Replies (like this reply post) have accumulated against the Topic.

There are hidden/private Topics and Categories created by the RWOT Steering Group for semi-private discussions - these are not secret discussions, but are not visible for all the regular decision-making and formation reasons.
