-There are several settings in your Profile to customize your forum experience, it's worth a look.

-This forum has several "Categories" so far -- these are the main headings you see on the home page. If you want to see what's in a category, just click on it's title. You'll then see a list of topics. Click on a topic's title to open and read it and any replies.

-You can post in the topic by clicking "reply". There are other options there as well, take a look.

-If you don't want to reply, you can return to the Board by using your browser's back button, clicking on the bread crumb folders, or using the Jump to dropdown menu in the bottom right corner of the page. To start a new topic within a board, click the new topic button, give it a title and then fill in the text box with your post.

-Take a minute to check out all of the formatting buttons on a post page! If you see an icon that you don't understand, just hover your cursor over it and a hint will pop up. The very last icon is a red A -- that toggles your view from seeing formatting codes in your post to seeing just formatted text.

-Also check out the Attachments and other options below the post text box. You can attach images, PDFs, etc but there is a file size restriction.

-You can edit or delete a post after it's been posted. Just click on the title and click the edit or delete button.

The Help section above is very thorough but if you can't find an answer, feel free to reply here with your questions.
