      Description

      The entry page is where a site organizer (or similar role) structures the forum interaction. Although the auto-created default forum and topic are a help, we have found that users still need a bit of guidance. Propose to add help text/links that will the user in the following circumstances:

      1. Default forum and topic
      "Use Forum Settings and Topic Settings to change the title and other details of this forum.
      New forums and topics can only be created by you or someone with your level of access.
      Use Template Settings to set up a template for all new forums."

      2. Childless forum
      (displayed below childless forum) "You need to add at least one topic for the forum above to be active. <link>Create a topic?</link>"

      3. No Forums (either defaults have not been created or all have been deleted)
      "No forums have been created. <link>Create a forum?</link>"

      4. All forums are draft
      "Note: All forums are draft. Forums saved as drafts cannot be seen by all participants. "

      5. All topics are draft
      "Note: All topics are draft. Topics saved as drafts cannot be seen by all participants. "

      6. No topics
      "Note: You need to add at least one topic."
      (displayed below childless forum) "You need to add at least one topic for the forum above to be active. <link>Create a topic?</link>"

      7. All Forums or all topics are draft, or there is just forums (no topics). Stock MSGCNTR does not display a message to access user saying that no forums are available.
      (displayed to access type user)"There may be forums that are not yet available for participation. Contact the site owner if you have questions about the status of a forum."

      For reference to BRD: Req 1 "Add conditional descriptive text to guide users through topic creation"
