Akamai Community Training Document - New
The discussion tool is a great way to introduce new thoughts to the community and generate conversations. Just check out all the great discussions happening in the Web Performance area!
Navigate to the group or place in the community where you would like to post
Select the 'discussion' tool from the action menu
The action menu will always be located on the right-hand side of a group's or place's banner.
NOTE: This feature may not be enabled in certain areas of the community.
Un-check the "mark this discussion as a question" box
This is always checked by default. Click here if you want to learn more about How do I ask a question?
Title your discussion and add content
Use the rich content editor to insert an image, video, or code example into a discussion.
Link to additional content via @mention or by uploading attachments.
Tag your discussion post
Choose from a selection of existing tags (which will appear as you type) or create new ones. Tags make content easily searchable.
By default, you will automatically be following your own discussion post. Anytime there is activity related to your post (i.e., comments, likes, etc.) you will be notified.
