Preview Pane in Discussion Board

D2L allows you the option to open a discussion thread in either a new window or in a preview pane at the bottom of the screen. The preview pane is the default setting, but if you would prefer to have your threads open in new windows, you should:

  1. Click on "Discussions" in the main navigation bar.
  2. Click on any discussion topic (the blue indented link beneath the forum title).
  3. Click on "Settings" beneath the dark gray bar within the discussion area. A new window will pop up.
  4. Uncheck the box next to "Show the preview pane."
  5. Click "Save" at the bottom right of the window.

If you would prefer to have all discussion threads open in the preview pane, follow the steps listed above, but instead of unchecking the box next to "Show the preview pane," check it and save.
