It helps to think of a Forum as a Filing system. Opening this web page on your computer is like opening a file cabinet drawer. You immediately see a bunch of folders with the various categories listed on them. These are called the "Forums".

Clicking on one of these Forum folders reveals a list of sub folders inside, called topics or threads.

Clicking on one of the “topics†opens the dialog, often called the "thread", where users communicate with each other.

To join in the discussion simply click the "Post Reply" button at the bottom left. It will open a dialog box where you type your response. You can preview how it will look or simply submit it when you are done. You can edit your posts after they have been submitted by clicking on the edit button. You can not delete a post that has been replied to. This would causes an orphan post issue where the thread no longer makes sense because part of the discussion is missing.

Please read the notes on Forum Rules and Forum Etiquette in the FAQ (frequently asked question) section. faq.php#f00

The FAQ also gives details on how to add pictures to your posts.
