Resource

A resource is a recommendation for something that you think is interesting and valuable to the community. It is a link to something outside of the community, that we can find later in searches and references around subjects.

There are a few things you can do:

  • You create a resource by using the ‘+’ button in the header menu or the button on the topic overview page of your profile. This is called creating a 'topic'. Resource is a type of 'topic'. 
  • Choose 'Resource' from the options
  • When creating you can either choose to add it to a group or not.
  • Creating one outside a group the resource is visible on the homepage stream and on the profile of the author
  • Creating one inside an open group it appears in the topic overview in a group on the homepage stream and on the profile of the author
  • Creating one inside a closed group will only be available to members of that group
  • You can also create a resource in a group directly from the group itself
  • Only The author can edit their own resource
  • The author can choose whether people can comment or not on the topic in the settings at the bottom of the 'add topic' page
