    What does 'channel' mean and how to use

    For the non-computer savvy people like me, could someone do a quick explanation of what this means and how to use it? Sorry if this is very basic and EVERYONE else knows, but, alas, I don't. Thanks for your help.

    Channels are not all that different from TV stations or aisles in a stupid market
    "Basically" the major channels in OurUnRaveled are "Forums", Project Blogs, and groups.
    In some e-commerece software they are often called "categories"

    Using the Stupid market analogy -
    Stupid Market would be a Forum Channel
    it would have "sub-channels" like Produce, Dairy, Deli, meat, frozen foods, etc.
    Within these Sub-Channels are Topics, like the dairy aisle has an area for cheese, milk, yogurt, eggs and so on

    OurUnRaveled
    General is the Forum Channel
    Tech Support is a Sub-Channel
    and your question "What is a Channel"
    is a section in the Sub-Channel for a specific topic.

    Carry that to the Groups Channel, each group is a sub-channel,
    For Project Blogs Channel, each individual blog is a sub-channel.

    Does this help?
