Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.

Hi Tom, Peter Elmer set up Atlas and CMS HyperNews to use HTTPS. I do not know if there is any special arrangement outside the code to get it to work. regards, -- Terry Hung - Stanford Linear Accelerator Center phone: 650-926-3618 e-mail: email@example.com > > Hi, > > Due to security concerns in BNL we have decided to run HN via https > entirely, not via http. > > So I went to hnrc file and replaced all http with https and all references > to port 80 with port 443.
