-If you want to quote something that was said in the last post, click on "Quote" at the bottom of the post you wish to quote. - it will include the previous person's post within 'quotes' and you may edit to pick the part to which you are replying and remove the remainder if you'd like, If you want to quote more than one post click 'MultiQuote" at the bottom of each of the posts.

-To start a topic - look for the forum where it would be most appropriate to post, and click on "New Topic" at the top of the chosen forum, and when the window opens for response, it will include 'Topic Title' and 'Topic Description', and you have to fill in Title, but not necessarily Description, although that's useful for grabbing attention or clarifying title. Please don't use all upper case in titles.

-To edit your post - click on 'Edit' at the bottom of the post; after you make your changes remember to hit 'Save Changes'. An automatically generated notation will appear at the bottom of the post that it was "Edited by *you" with the date.
REMEMBER TO HIT "POST' OR "SAVE CHANGES" (if you edited)...OR NOTHING WILL POST TO THE FORUM!
With a little practice this will all get easier! biggrin.gif You can always go back and edit the posts.

Remember to read the Posting Guidelines :goodjob:


Have fun!
