  • Below that, you can see tabs that will display different views of posts and topics.
  • Below the tabs is the site banner.
  • Below the banner, to the left, is a breadcrumb trail that tells you where you are. The trail changes as you click your way into the site.

When you click on a topic name, the page for that topic displays posts that members have written.
