1. To post a thread.
Find the forum you wish to post into. At the top there is a box where you can put your title. Click on that.

Once you click on that the larger message area opens for you.

Fill it in and then look down below for the POST THREAD button.

887011


That will create a post without an images or attachment.

When making a new thread, you will see MORE next to Post Thread. If you click on the MORE you will see this at the bottom of the message area.

Click on it and it will go to your images so you may pick one. Upload it. You can see it uploading and then it will look as below

If I choose Thumbnail

And this is Full image

20160409_184830_17.jpg


Where the cursor is at time of clicking Thumbnail or Full image, is where it will appear.

Private Messages now referred to as Conversations

Yes, this software calls them conversations, but everyone will still know if you call them a Private message.

To find them, look to the top right and see the envelope. That will open the listing of conversations.

You can see an alert telling me I have a PM/conversation waiting.


887018


When I click on it, this is what I see, you will see the same type of screen.

887019


Click on the title

887020


On the right side is where you will find STAR, to make it easy to find again. Mark unread if you want to find it as unread later and Leave.

Leave is the substitute for Delete. You will not see it any longer when you Leave it.

This box pops up when you Leave the conversation.

887021


Please DO NOT check the ignore future messages if I'm involved. But if you check it, that keeps that PM/conversation from becoming active to you again.

Your User Control Panel is accessed by Clicking on your name in the upper right corner of the forum page.

When you click on your name, you will see your User Control Panel and several options. There will be a few more added as we get the site completely set up.

Take a look at yours and explore each. Ask questions as you come to them.

Let me check on that. It should still be showing. Is it only on one forum, or anywhere you look?
