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.

I highly recommend starting with the predefined physics lists available in the Geant4 distribution. See the example $G4INSTALL/examples/extended/optical/OpNovice2 in Geant4 version 10.5.beta. If you run that example with the macro below you will see scintillation photons generated with different yields for different particles.
