JimJimJimJim website and Forums – How to reply to a topic on the forums from an email – Members only


The Australian Advanced Prostate Cancer Support
Group has forums on the Internet where members can share information, tell stories, ask questions,
join the discussion, or contact other members. To save members checking the forums on the
Internet all the time, every member gets an email for each new TOPIC posted on the forums. But, how does a member get from an interesting
topic in an email to join in the conversation on the forums on the Internet? This video will tell you how. [sting] This is a members-only video. As the rest of the video is for members, if
you are not a member, you may wish to hop to near the end of this video where there
will be a link to the best video for you. So, as a member, here I am in my email app. Your email program may look different to mine,
but the emails should look pretty much the same. Here’s the email. I’ve read the email. I’m interested. I want to join in. First step is easy. Go to the bottom of the email. Find the button which says Go to this Topic. Click on the Go to this Topic button. Your computer will open your Internet browser,
then go to the forums, then directly to this topic in the forums. The word Forums Mid-page at the top will tell
you that you have arrived. Your own display name right top of the page
will tell you that you are logged in. If your display name is not here, you will
have to Sign in, because only members can post in the forums. You see to the left of the page that Nev has
posted this topic, and that it is the same one you had in your email. Under Nev’s topic you can see that Ardee has
posted a comment. Under that PrestonN has posted a comment. Right at the bottom of the comments you come
across a narrow box that says inside Reply to this topic … Click inside the tiny box, and after a moment
or two, it becomes a neat little word processor for you to type your comment. Type your comment. Wait! You are not finished yet! You must click on the Submit Reply button
to send your contribution into the forums. When people anywhere in the world come to
this topic, there will be your comment or question. That’s a lot to take in, so lets just recap
the important bits. You get an email for every new topic. Go to the bottom of the email. Click on the Go to this Topic button. This takes you automatically to the topic
in the forums. Go to the bottom of the topic. Click in the small box labelled Reply to this
topic … The small box opens up for you to type your
reply. Type your reply. Click the Submit Reply button. That’s it. Your reply is now at the bottom of the topic
on the forums for all the world to see. Thanks for watching. One of these videos coming up is our latest,
the other is the best video for you. Click one. You have 10 seconds to choose. Cheers

Danny Hutson
