Why can’t a user see the Discussion forum and/or topic in D2L?

Possible solutions:
1. Discussion Forum -and- Topic are necessary
Double-check to be sure *both* a Discussion Forum -and- at least one Topic exists within that forum.
Without at least one topic, the forum will not display.
2. User “Filter By: Unread” option
Users may change the filter settings to display “unread” posts on the Discussions page.
Discussions_-_unread
This option will prevent them from:
  • (a) being the FIRST person to post to a discussion, -and-
  • (b) seeing any discussion forum or topic where they have already read all the postings.
Note: instructors who have chosen the “Unread” option will also not be able to see a newly-created topic within a forum.
