Difference between topics and posts?

I think i might be using this site wrong. Whats the difference between topics and posts? Also where can i ask questions like these cause im sure this isnt right

You can ask site-related questions in the #all-about-nameberry forum.

A topic is basically a thread. So, if you start a new thread asking a specific question (Middle name for [name_m]Peter[/name_m]? [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] or [name_f]Clara[/name_f]? etc.) that’s a topic.

A post is either the same as a topic, or it can also be a response to someone else’s topic. So any time you write something and hit enter, that’s a post.

No big deal which you prefer to use though! I think everyone understands what you mean either way from context.

Might be helpful to add: on the old forum software thread was the term for what we call topic now, for that reason many users still call it that :blush: So there’s no difference between topic and thread!
