How to make a new post on the forum.

Unread post by Saul »

If you are new to forums it can be a little confusing how you actually post a new message and where you post it to. It can even be confusing for those who have used a forum before but are new to this one. You may not be familiar with the layout etc.

This is just a simple guide in the form of screenshots which will hopefully get you on your way. If people want to add to this guide please do so. Anything we can do to help new users take part is always very welcome (Y)

The screenshots below are using someone wanting to post in the Yamaha Montage section as an example but they apply to all parts of the forum. Please let us know if there are things you are unsure of or need clarifying in any way.

Thank you for posting this, Saul! ((i)) I can tell you from my experiences with multiple other forums that some people-- a lot more than one might imagine-- definitely can have trouble figuring out how to create a new topic. Sometimes it's easy to forget that things which seem obvious or easy to us can seem obscure or difficult to others-- and vice versa.

Has the forum main page changed?
https://www.yamahamusicians.com/forum/index.php
Under here, recent posts, there used to be...more than one page of recent posts.
Do these get 'archived' after a certain number of posts so that there is now only 'one' page of recent posts
or have I missed something....or is it my aging browser...

When logged in you should see this:

There did used to be pages of "latest posts" you could click through but these all eat up site resources and there really is no need to have more than the latest 10-15 posts at the top of the forum.
