How would you explain the difference in how to use the "Message Forum" and "User Forums" features? Is there a need for both? Also, it appears you can't set up to receive an email when someone posts something new in "Message Forum".

Ben, Hope you don't mind, but I will just refer you to the FAQs for most of the answer.

1) Click FAQs above
2) Click Questions About Building Your Site
3) Read Question #13

"Message Forum" is what ClassCreator was first started with, then it was revised to be "User Forums" and "Message Forums" was to go away, but it was decided that some people understood the "Message Forum" concept better, so it was kept around.

With Message Forum, you get what you get. There will not be any planned revisions or maintenance for "Message Forums".. You cannot get any e-mails when someone posts to the Message Forums.

You can disable either of them if you want from your Edit Site Pages link.
