I used the forum widget that yola provided, and it looks great. Just one question. How does one post to the forum??? I am able to sign in, but can't see where it allows me to post. Probably user error, so would appreciate help. Feel free to check out the site: shanefalcofantasyfootballforum.com

Hi Fantasy Football Fan,

I went to your forum page, and I logged into your forum. To post a topic, all you need to do is click "Start a Topic".



I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Nathan

Nathan,

Thanks for the reply! The craziest thing is that when I go to the site, I don't see the "Start a Topic" link!! Does it only appear after you logged in.

Speaking of that, I couldn't figure out how to sign in under one of the member ids I already created. I actually was able to click on your member id but not either of my own. Why I clicked on "Sign In" and selected Yahoo (which is what I had used before), it just flashed the window briefly then went away. Any more thoughts???

I can't even get a screen shot of my view to paste into this reply box! Not my day.

I appreciate your help!

Nathan,

I see my screen shot did post in my reply above, so that's something. Do you see how "Start a Topic" does not appear? Maybe because I'm not signed in correctly?

Again, thanks!!!

Hey Fantasy Football Fan,

It looks like you aren't signed in, as at the top of your screen shot it says
"Members | Sign in" Could you try clicking on "Sign in" and sign in with the account you made the forum with?

Whoops, I just re-read your reply and saw that you already did that. When the window popped up and then went away, are you sure it didn't get minimized into the dock
(on Mac OS X) or into the taskbar (on Windows)? Sometimes that happens.

Nathan,
All set. I opened Explorer instead of Mozilla and was able to sign in under both of the user names I had created. After signing in I saw the "Start a Topic" link. I went ahead and posted a topic to be sure. Problem solved. Probably mainly user error!! Thanks for taking the time. I really appreciate your assistance.
