It looks like it's checking that the class has been provided at least 2 arguments . If not, you print a warning to the console telling you that you need to provide 2 names for the code to work.

Next you provide the arguments to 3 separate objects by providing new instances or instantiating them.

Then, add the post with the forum class using the addPost() method which is in another file.
