How to post messages

Postby Support Team » Wed Mar 29, 2017 11:41 am

Before you post on the forum, make sure you are logged in. You can then either start a new topic or reply to other posts.

Selecting the “New Topic” button in a forum will take you to the posting screen. After submitting your post, a new topic will appear in that forum with your post as the last displayed. Other users (and you as well) will then be able to reply to your topic by using the “Post Reply” button. Alternatively, you can use the ‘Quick reply’ button which has less features and will allow you to respond more quickly to other posts.

When creating a post, you can submit it straight away using the ‘submit’ button, or you can save it for later by using the ‘save draft’ button. If you have a draft saved from earlier, you can also load this up using the ‘load’ button. When a draft is saved, only the subject and message of the post are stored. Topic icons, attachments, etc. will be lost.

When loading a draft, click the title of the desired post to load the draft. Any information in the current post will be lost and replaced with that of the draft.

Once you have finished writing your post, you can preview it using the ‘preview’ button. You can also choose to be notified when others post a reply by ticking the ‘notify me when a reply is posted’ box.
