    Hello everyone! This thread here is to give you an introduction to:

    • Finding a forum
    • Starting a thread
    • Writing a post
    • Using all the awesome writing tools
    • Replying to posts!

    If I don't add something in here, please comment below, and I'll be sure to add it! If you need more help, feel free to post below!

    Finding a forum:
    There are masses of forums on this site, and sometimes finding the right one can be hard! That's why there's a great navigation bar to help! It has the main forums and popular sub-forums for you to use! If you can't find it there, then go here to find a full list of all the forums available!

    Starting a thread:
    This can be very daunting to do with your first thread, but don't worry, this is how you can do it!
    Firstly, find which forum you're going to post in! Then click the orange 'post new thread' button! For a simple post, you can give it a title (try and make it relevant for the best responses!), type your message, then use the preview button to preview it if you would like, or click 'submit new thread'

    Writing a post:
    Now you've got your editor open, you can right your post. You have all the basic text editing tools at your disposal! The basics are changing font, size, colour, position, styling, and more! The more unusual buttons we will go into next! Also, please take a look at the Community Guidelines to make sure that your post is appropriate!

    Other editing tools:
    You may have noticed many other buttons! I will outline how to use them, and what they do here! (Hovering over them will tell you what they are!)
    Smiley: this allows you to make your post even more awesome with some smileys!
    Link: Highlight some text and click this, insert your link, and you'll have awesome looking hyperlinks!
    Unlink: This'll remove any selected hyperlinks!
    Insert Image/Insert Video: Insert your own images or videos!
    Quote:
    You can put a message in here like this! Put the message in between the two quote words!
    Code:
    Code:
    Do the same as you would a quote, but it gives it in a box like this, perfect for pasting code into a post!
    HTML:
    HTML Code:
    Similar to code!
    PHP:
    PHP Code:
    Similar to HTML and Codebut this will give it in a scrolling box
    Subscript/Superscript: These allow you to add subscript and superscript!
    Insert horizontal line: Add a line like this:

    Strike through:
    Does what it says on the tin!
    Spoiler:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Put things in here!


    Replying to posts:
    You can do this two ways! Either, click the reply button under someone's post - this will open up the advanced editor, and you can use all the tools I've outlined above! This will include that person's message in your post, and they'll be notified that you've replied! OR, if you just want to write something, scroll to the end of the page, and the basic editor is there! If you want to go advanced, you can click 'go advanced'! If you want to quote someone in after you've stated typing, you can click the +" button! This will add it to the basic editor! Once written, you can click 'submit reply'!
