how to use
 
Hi Folks, I am new to this forum and I cannot see a way to add a post, unless of course I'm doing it now, I don't know. Any tips please.?

Re: how to use
 
Yes, that was it. :)

When you want to make a new "thread", that is you want to start a new discussion on your choice of topic, then

- first you make sure you're signed in with your user-name and password,

- then do as many mouse-clicks as it takes to get to the right category (for example, if your topic is "I'm having mysterious side-effects from my medication" then you'd want to post it in the Medication section, but it your topic was "Hello to all the ADHDers in Lancashire!" you'd need to put that in the Chit-chat section),

- and then click the "New Thread" button which is on the left side of the page near the top.


When you want to participate in a topic that's already going on, by adding your own comment to it, then you have a choice: you can click the "Post Reply" button, or if you'd like to quote part of another person's message and respond to it specifically, you click the "Quote" button that appears directly below that person's comment. Plus, for convenience, at the very bottom of each topic is a box you can type in; if you don't need all the features offered by the usual functions of the discussion-board software, you can simply type in there, hit "Post Quick Reply", and your comment will be added to the thread with a minimum of fuss. (That only works for replying; when creating your own topic there is no such little box.)
