HOW TO START NEW TOPICS, REPLY, QUOTE, EDIT AND DELETE POSTS

1. Starting new Topics

1. Choose the board/forum you want to post your new topic.
2. Click the newtopic button on the upper left hand corner of the screen.
3. Enter the Subject field with the title of your topic.
4. Fill in the message field. You have the option to choose the appearance of your text.

* Tags. If you want to use the B(Bold) button, it is more practical to type the text first, then highlight and click "B" button which would produce text, which renders as text when posted or previewed. The same thing will happen when you click

* Smileys. They can easily be used by clicking automatically the desired icon that you want to add in your message.


* Message Color.
After typing the message of your topic.Highlight the message and click the color bars. There you can choose the desired color of your message.


5. Once your message is finished, click Preview to check and then SEND to post your topic.

*Note: Text formatting works only on texts entered into the message box and nowhere else. You cannot use text formatting on the title of your new topic.


2. Replying to an ongoing Thread

Replying to a topic means you are continuing the so-called online conversation or 'thread'. If you want to divert from a particular thread and start your own, then you start a new topic.

Basically, replying to a topic is similar to starting a new topic. Whereas in starting a new topic you click the New Topic button, in replying to an ongoing topic you click the Reply button. Here's how:

1. Locate the title of the topic you want to reply to and click on it. At the upper left hand corner of the screen you will find the buttons newtopic and postreply.
2. Click the button and type your reply on the message field.
3. Once you finished typing your message, you can either click button (to check your post) or directly click button to post message or post.


3. Quoting a Post

If you want to repeat the post of another forumer and add a reply to it, you use the QUOTE function. Here's how:

1. Click the button on the upper right hand corner of the post you wanted to quote. You can quote any post you want. After clicking the QUOTE button, the exact post is pasted on your message field. Type your reply one line below the quoted topic and not within the quoted lines.

2. After typing your reply, you may click button, to check your message or button to finally make your post.


4. Editing a Post

Members can edit only their OWN post and not others' posts. That is reserved only to the Admin and forum moderators. You edit your post if you want to correct or add something to your current post.

1. To edit your post, click the button on the upper right hand corner of your present post (beside quote button).
2. After editing, click button to check or button to post.
3. Be aware that you only have up to 24 hours to be able to edit your post.

5. Deleting your Post
1. Click the delete button on the upper right hand corner of your post to delete it.
2. Confirm the deletion procedure.

Good luck!
