How to start a new topic?

Postby TimRichards » Sat Dec 05, 2015 12:46 pm

It seems there is no way to start a new topic when looking at the home page, the board index page which lists the current threads. Am I missing something? It seems alogical place to be able to start a new topic, that is, without being in another topic.???

I see what you mean Tim but to post a new topic you first click on a category then create the new topic within that category. This way topics are categorized as they are created.

Makes sense, now I think about it. Thanks Terry. Just needs a bit of getting used to. :?

So I clicked on this category and want to start a new topic. However, I cannot see any buttons that invite me to enter a topic heading nor where I should pose my question or issue.

This is one level too deep. Go back to where you see the broad categories like MacOS 10. Click into one of those broad categories and you will see start a new topic button there. Good luck!

On the Index page click on the appropriate category for your topic. For example, if you have a question about your iPad click on the iOS category. Once in the category click on New Topic. Compose your topic and click the Submit button.

If you want to be notified when someone replies to your topic. Click on the wrench icon to the left of the Search field and choose "Subscribe topic".
