Moderator note: This question was posed by this user and used as an example in the FAQ section. It has been edited and some replies removed. The original topic thread remains intact.

"This is not the first or even second attempt to make a post here . I have made three or four and for some reason they aren't added as posts.

It seems to me just a little strange that you have to make five posts just to be a full member and it's nearly impossible to figure out how to make one post when there is no place to make a post with out going to someone else's post to make a post and then it doesn't show when you do."

As with most modern software, there is more than one way to make do anything. Making a post here is no exception. Using the blank area below the last post in any thread is using the Quick Reply feature. Just at the top right edge of any message, there are two additional ways to respond.

The Quote feature allows you to quote the post you wish to reply to. This is very useful in very long threads where you can select one of many posts and make it clear you are responding to a specific one. Otherwise, your wise words may be lost at the end when you are trying to reply to post number 3. One small tip. If you are replying to only a small portion of the post, you can use your mouse to highlight the area you want to quote before you select the Quote button. When you do that, only that small portion of the reply which you just highlighted is quoted.

The Reply button gives you a new screen with a blank area in which to make a post. This is the full reply which allows you to add attachments to your reply and other good things.

Both of these last two open the full WYSIWYG editor where you can change fonts and do all sorts of formatting. Using the full editor also allows you to embed images and videos from outside sources. Another way to get to that editor when you are in the Quick Reply box is to select the Preview feature. That takes all of what you have already typed and puts it into the WYSIWYG editor and previews what you have written so far.

At both the top and bottom of any thread is a New Topic button for starting a brand new topic inside of the existing forum. You can change the forum in the New Topic WYSIWYG editor if you want to make your topic in another discussion area. In the blank editor screen you get for a New Topic you have no subject information and can change the board in which the message is posted. The board defaults to the one you were in when you selected a new topic but you can change it at that time using a pull down list of all the boards here in which you can post.

I hope this helps you in the future. This will be made "Sticky" which will keep it near the top in the FAQ section.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
