Hi, All!

I thought it might be helpful to pass along that each page of posts under a Topic has a total of 10 posts. To view the next page of posts/replies:

Scroll down to the bottom of the page you are viewing. In the lower right corner, click on page "2" to get to the next page of posts. Some topics already have multiple pages, at least one topic has 23 pages of posts right now.

or

Scroll up to the top of the page you are viewing. In the upper right corner, just above the first posting box on the page, you'll see page numbers, too.

Please give me a shout if you have any questions.

Thanks for posting!

Finding Your Way Around the Forums

Postby admin » Wed Sep 24, 2014 7:35 pm

FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND THE FORUMS

Are you new to forums? No worries, most of us are!

Think of these forums like you would a book. The home or main page (called the "Board index") is like a Table of Contents and lists all the forums in a basic outline.

Each forum is like a chapter in a book. Under each forum are different topics. When you click on a forum name, such as "All Things Glen", a page opens that includes all the topics within that specific forum.

Four Easy Steps for Registering

1. After reading the "About Your Community" forum and its topics, set up your User Profile. To set up your profile, click on the button "User Control Panel" located in the upper left hand corner of your screen (under the banner). Then, click on "Overview". Select "Profile". Fill in as much of the profile information that you'd like to share. Press the Submit button.

2. Click on "Edit Profile" and use this drop down box to customize your profile by adding an avatar or image if you'd like to, selecting your time zone and the date format that you'd like to see on your screen, etc. Press "submit" to save your changes.

3. You can customize more things by clicking on "Edit Global Settings", "Posting Defaults", "Display Options" (allows you to see the newest posts first or last under each topic), etc. You don't have to make all of these selections right away.

4. After your User Profile is set up, explore the forums! Click on "Board index" to get you back to the home page if you are not already on it.

How to Post After Registering

Under each forum (such as "All Things Glen"), click on a topic that interests you. You'll see posts from forum members. If you would like to add to the discussion or have a question to post, click on the "Post a reply" button. The "Post a reply" button opens up a posting box in which you can type the info you'd like to contribute or your question to be posted. You can preview your post by clicking on the "Preview" button located below the posting box. If you are satisfied with your post, then simply press the "Submit" button, which is also located below the posting box. That's it!

If this is your first post, it won't display until it is approved by a forum moderator. You'll receive an email as soon as your first post is approved. This approval step is one way we screen out spammers. After your first post, you can post freely.

Here's the cool part about posting in forums: if you do not see a topic that covers what you are looking for, you can click on the "Post a new topic" button under each forum to start a new discussion. Just give your topic a "Subject" name using upper and lower case letters and then post your question or content that you would like to share with others in the posting box. Topics are usually somewhat general in nature such as "Glen Campbell as a Beach Boy" rather than "When was Glen Campbell a member of the Beach Boys?".

Need Help?

What should you do if this tutorial left you more confused than you were to begin with? Try clicking on the "FAQ" icon or button located in the upper left hand corner of this page. You will find lots of helpful forum questions and answers. If you still need a helping hand, we are here to help you. Just send an email message to us at Admin@GlenCampbellForums.com. We will answer your question(s) as quickly as possible.

Most importantly, just know that you can't mess up the forums or anything like that. You can't delete anything by mistake. If you post something that might be better seen and responded to on a different forum or topic, I can easily move it for you and send you an email so that you know where your post was moved to.

So "put your click on", and find your way around the forums--and enjoy reading and posting with other Glen Campbell fans! See you there!
