    forums grouped by category. Selecting a forum category in the navigation
    submenu only displays forums from within the selected category.
    Select a forum name and the forum page is displayed. It contains a list
    of available topics within the forum. Select the topic name in order to display
    the topic content.

  • What are the links that appear above the forum topic content?

    These are links to the Graphviz categories, terms and tags that have been associated with the forum post by the author. They can be used to access other website pages that have been associated with the same categories, terms or tags.

    Forums can only be created by members of the Graphviz development group. Use
    the Contact Us link to request that a new forum be created. Select the 'graphviz
    features' category when making the request.

    Subscribe to content by taxonomy name - Forum topics can be associated with
    taxonomy names.  Names can be items selected from the graphviz-terms
    vocabulary     list or tags created on-the-fly during topic creation. When
    this option is chosen, by default you will be notified by email whenever any
    website content associated with the taxonomy name receives an update or
    comment.
