Types of Articles NewsTalkers provides three types of articles: discussion, blog and group discussion. The discussion type is the most common - it is used to create articles (original or seeded) in the general forum. Blogs are typically used by original authors who might syndicate their work from NT. Group discussions are articles that are hosted within a particular NT group. In the past, articles were frozen into their type. If, for example, you have a series of 'discussion' articles that you would like to organize under a new group, there was no option to do so. You could copy & paste the article content, but the comments and other components would not follow. The new Migrate function addresses this limitation.
