Start a new topic


From the forums homepage, choose your required forum, click 'Start new topic' then type in a subject for your message. The subject line will appear at the top of your message (aka post in forum speak). Then type in your message.


If you have prepared your message using another program such as Word and you need to paste this into the message box, always use the "paste as plain text" icon then click allow (to allow access to your clipboard) and your text will appear in the correct font and format as well as strip out any hidden codes.



Once you’re happy with the message, click on the Preview tab to see how your message will look live on the site. If it all looks OK, click on the Post button to put your message live. It is a good idea to get into the habit of previewing your post but you do have 60 minutes (from the time your post is live) to edit it.
