  3. Select Change page template to expand the options, then select the Forum page template:

    Select Forum page template

  4. Enter the URL, page heading, title bar caption and link caption. (For a description of these properties, see: how do I create a new blank page?)
  5. Enter the keywords and page contact.
  6. When you have finished editing the page properties, select the Create new page button.
  7. A confirmation message appears with a link to view the new forum. The forum is currently empty and ready for you to add the first topic:
