The site-wide forum settings section specifies how the forum handles posts. Your forums inherit the site-wide properties.
This section contains the following articles:
- Duplicate forum posts - Enable/disable duplicate posts and change the interval in which they can be posted.
- Editing settings - forums - Set the forum editing properties for notes and post editing.
- Forum attachments - Set allowed file types and maximum upload size, and change allowed file extensions.
- General settings - forums - Enable RSS feeds and thread status tracking; specify the items displayed per feed, change the number of days before a post is marked as read, and change the date filtering criteria.
- Popular forum posts - Specify how may replies or views a post should receive before considered to be popular, and determine how many days a thread can go without replies before it becomes unpopular.
