Forum Structure Explained

In the SignalWire Community forums, conversations are organized as follows:


Here’s a bit about each:

  • Category = a broad subject matter
  • Sub-Category = a more specific sub-section of that subject matter
  • Tag = an optional method to sort subject matter even further
  • Topic = a name for a single conversation within that subject matter
  • Post = an individual entry in a topic or conversation

If this is your first time using Discourse, this guide explains the basics and common terms!

As a general rule, try to post to the most specific area possible. This means that if there is a relevant sub-category, it’s best to post there! Adding tags will also help readers find your posts, and will help Discourse to suggest similar posts to yours.

This forum is centered around SignalWire and FreeSWITCH, so you’ll notice that most of our Categories are in service to that. To chit chat with your peers or see what the community is up to, check out the Social Lounge category. Otherwise, find the most relevant Category or Sub-category and post away!

Lastly, we’re always looking for feedback on the Discourse. If there’s something you’d like to see, if a category is too broad/narrow or confusing, or even if you want to share your experience getting started on the forum, head over to Site Feedback!
