Hi All,

Apologies for the stupid newbie question, but I have arranged my categories and forums and now want to add the first thread -- but I can't find a way to do it! I am in the control panel area setting up the site and can go into each forum etc. but cannot find the 'add new thread' button! 

How do I post a new thread for my own forum?

Help!

Thanks in advance ;-)

Same way you did here. Go into the forum, post a thread.

Thanks! 

But does that mean I have to enter from the main page like everyone else? When I am inside the control panel area (where you set everything up) I don't have the option to post...

Edit: posting facility is not available at the forum admin panel

if a forum is set as category at the forum management in the admin panel then post new thread button would not be available

Yes, and yes, you can't post from within the ACP.

Within the Mod CP on the other hand, you have the ability to create "announcements" - that can't be replied to.

Announcements are designed to announce, as implied by the name, and I wouldn't class them as topics.

Sorry for the delay in replying -- busy, busy life! -- and thank you both for the information. I'll go in as a user and try and post that way.

Thanks again. Smile
