Thread vs Post

Many people use the term Post to mean anything they placed on our site (or any other forum web site)

But there are some basic and distinct differences

Thread That is when you are the originator of a new topic. There are no previous posts or anything about the subject. You are starting it new. It may be a subject that has been covered many times before, but you are creating it new for yourself


Thread #1 : I want to talk about dogs

You are the first person, or we call OP (Originator Party) of that item

Post That is when you are making a replying to someone else's (or could be yours) existing thread. You are in fact responding to what someone has said already


Post #1 : You are replying to Thread #1 , so you might say, What about dogs?

The initial thread will be #1.. Then every follow on post will be sequentially number (ie #2,#3,etc)
