What are the different ways I can view posts in a Moodle discussion forum?

Forum Viewing Options

(These feature are not available in the Advanced Forum.)

There are several ways to view a discussion forum. Use the pull-down menu at the top to choose a view.

Display Replies Flat

In this view the replies are organized without indent by either date order ("newest first") or by name. With this view all replies are visible while leaving the original topic post above with a blue banner.

Nested Form

The replies are displayed as a conversation. This view is recommended for reading an entire discussion.

Threaded Form

The original post remains visible with the replies listed as a series of links below the original posting. This is a great way to view the names of all who have replied to the discussion.


Adjust the views and find the one that works best for you!
