Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

What are the main differences between a Forum and a Blog?

  • Because Blogs and Forums are under separate tab and have a different layout there must be some reason and purpose for this.  Perhaps is how postings are moderated but I do not want to speculate, better if PP Admin tells me.
  • No matter what the reason and how they are managed the interface might be improved if ease of navigation is improved. I find Forums easy to navigate and better organized, on the other hand Blogs are all under same heading with no sub-heading making it harder to navigate. Perhaps navigation and organization shall be similar to Forums with some minor differences .

Hello Rafael, 

(B) Blog: (Web-oriented)
The thread is the main article
The comments are there for discussion, credits and insights. 

(F) Forum: (Community-oriented)
The thread does not need a specific structure
A thread/post does not need to bring knowledge in itself, it can be a question or a discussion
A thread/post can be specific or broad as long as it's categorized

Blog -> The blog is the newspaper people would read on a nice day.
...While...
Forum -> The forum is a 'virtual social club' in which people group up to discuss different thematics. 

Please note that blogs' articles are categorized in tags or keywords that lead you to judging its appropriateness with your current browsing objective. Finally, there might be additional moderation settings and technical authorizations that are invisible to us.
