News forums - Only teachers are able to post to News forums and reply to posts
There is no save or auto-save feature within the Moodle forum editor. If you lose your connection to Moodle while you are writing a longer post, you will lose the forum content you have written. For lengthier forum posts, it might be a good idea to write them somewhere using a simple text editing application with a save function and then copy the text into the forum post when complete.
Do not cut and paste text into a forum post from Word, the internet or other locations (or to anywhere else in Moodle!). Cut and paste text can severely affect the formatting of your post and make it unreadable. For an alternative method of adding text from elsewhere see the FAQ on 'Cutting and pasting into Moodle'. link
