Forum Help for the Main page
This page lists all the messages that have beem posted within the forum that you are currently viewing.

If there are many messages that have been posted, the list that is shown is grouped into pages. So, for example if the forum had been set-up by the owner to only display ten messages per page, then you would only see the ten latest messages that had been sent.

To see the next ten messages, you would click one of the navigation buttons that are located at the bottom of the screen (shown and described below). You may move to the next, previous, first or last pages.

Also, you may view all the replies to each message. To do this, you would click the Show Threads button (described below). You would then see the ten messages and all replies to these ten messages. These are displayed in a 'tree-like' view whereby each reply to a message has been indented.

To post a new message, click on the Post button (desribed below). This will take you to another screen where you may enter the message details.
