    Tap the née thread button, top left of whatever forum you are on..... About as simple as it gets.

    Of course it does not show up if you are reading a thread, (it says post reply instead) so hit the back button and look at the top of thread list on the left.

    Once you've found your desired forum, for example, go into the General Nursing Forums.
    All images in this tutorial can be clicked for a more legible image if needed.
    Then to start a New Thread, click the New Thread icon.
    Then in the Post New Thread Window, choose a prefix if you wish, to help define your thread topic.
    Optional - choose a prefix
    Type a detailed title (please make the title relevant to your post to make it easy for other readers to know what your post is about and for the best chances at good responses to your thread.
    Type the content of your post, question, ideas, comments etc...
    Smilies are optional too. If you want to enter some smilies, just click them and they will appear in your post.
    Post Icons are optional too, they show up next to the title of your post in the main thread listings
    When your post is ready to submit, click on Submit New Thread Button. That's it! That's all there is to creating a new thread.
    I hope you found this helpful,

    If you have a specific problem, then you can either post a question or use the Search button near the top of the Forum web page.

    If you want to post a problem, you’ll probably want to either append your question to an existing thread if your problem is related to the topic being discussed in that thread, or start a new discussion (thread). To do that, you need to navigate back to the ‘iPad Forum’ page (button near the top of the Forum web page), then choose a discussion area that you think most suits the problem you want to discuss - say ‘iPad DiY’, click to enter that area and then you’ll see a button ‘Start New Thread’. You can click on that and enter a title for your thread and the usual text box where you can type the details of your problem.

    It makes sense to use a thread title that’s as descriptive as possible. So I wouldn’t call a thread ‘I have a problem’ because no one scanning through the thread will know what the problem is or whether they can help and, since there are so many posts made each day, no one has time to read them all.

    So, instead, make the title of the thread as specific as possible - ‘iPad screen goes blank every 5 seconds’, for example would be better (though not as good as it could be, I have to admit) and then give as much detail of the problem as you can.

    But don’t be afraid to post - all the Forum members are really nice and the Moderators keep them under control and make sure they’re well behaved and polite - well, most of the time!!

    But just enjoy your iPad. Like any new product, they'll be 'issues' that will arise - first piece of advice, don't panic and don't do anything rash. I've read of people who have restored their iPads - generally a last resort - when the problem was far far simpler.
