When an instructor clicks on a tool link to the discussion board, the page takes several minutes to load. Given enough time, the page will eventually load. Once an instructor goes into a forum, the page loads are normal. This only happens for instructors, the students are able to load the discussion board without a problem.
Status: Resolved as of September 17th.
Reported for: 9.1 Service Pack 12.
References: BB-511.Work around: While it will take 5-6 minutes to load, it will eventually load. Alternatively, Instructors can create links directly to the forum that you would like to access.
To create links directly to forums:
Create a new content item, which can be made unavailable to students if you do not want them to see the links. Note: Students are not experiencing the long load times that instructors are.
Under Tools click on Discussion Boards.
Select the option, Select a Discussion Board Forum.
Select the discussion board forum that you would like to access from the list provided.
Click on Next.
Click on Submit.
The link provided should load in a normal amount of time and take you directly to the forum that you would like to access.
If you need access to multiple forums, repeat the process above for each forum.
