Default How to Write a Forum Message

This forum offers a wide range of formatting features to enable you to write messages, in an interesting and pleasing manner, with easy inclusion of images, attachments, links and E-Mail addresses as well as Emoticons (those little faces used to express emotions online)! Simply mark the test you want to change and click on the appropriate button - easy!

In order to be able to learn how to use the forum properly, we have provided a range of descriptions to help you as follows:
  1. Read all the messages in Forum Rules and Announcments
  2. Click on the FAQ link found at the top of each page
  3. If you are familiar with Microsoft Word, you should find posting messages easy as the formating tools are very similar
  4. To have spell checking of your posts, you need to install a special software (free). Click on the spelling button (tick with ABC found on the top right of the editing box).
Sound too complicated There is no need to use any formatting at all. You can simply just click on the icon, write your message and then click on Submit New Thread!

However, adding formatting, smiles, etc. can add to the readability of your messages and adding a picture can be worth more than a thousand words!

It is not difficult to learn and you can even practice online without actually submitting a message to the forum. Just click on Preview Post and you will be able to see what you have done on the screen. If you think something needs changing, just make the changes and click on Preview Post again! You can do this as often as you like until are happy and then click Submit New Thread to add your message to the forum!

As long as nobody has replied to your message, you can also make corrections to text, you wrote yourself, by clicking on the icon.

You will find more messages in this forum teaching you how to add images, links, formatting, etc. in this forum.
