The first is a website, the other is a discussion on the website.

It's like a newspaper and an article.

THREAD is the initial *starting* post.
POST is a reply to a THREAD or a reply to a post within a thread.

The (singular) former contains (multiple) of the latter.

In other words, threads comprise an Original Post (OP) which is then answered by one or more other members. Threads are organised into subsections and sections. The whole organisation of threads, sections and subsections make up the Forum as a whole.
