Forums page

The Forums page lists all the forums available in the site you are using.

In some sites, some of the forums may be private, in which case you will not see them in the list unless you log in as a registered user).

Register / Log In

If the forum system doesn't know who you are, it will display only publicly visible forums and messages and it will not allow you to post any messages or replies.

If you are a registered user, you can log in by following the Register / Log In link.

If you are not a registered user, you can normally register yourself by following the Register / Log In link (although some sites may have more restrictive policies).

User Profile

If you are logged in, you can modify your user profile (which gives details such as your name and your email address) by following the User Profile link.

Email Alerts

You can choose which forums should send you email alerts when a new message appears: to do this, follow the Email Alerts link.

If you aren't logged in, you won't see this Email Alerts link: go to the Forum page for the forum you're interested in, and use the the Email Alerts link that you find there.

Viewing a forum

To view a forum and the topics it contains, click on its name in the list of forums. You will be taken to the Forum page for that forum.
