    When in the app you will notice all the tabs along the bottom......Current will show all the latest posts being created, Forums will take you to all the different Forums, once pressed, just press on iPad Discussions and you will see the many we have. You will notice a Subscribed tab here also, whenever you post in a thread you will be automatically subscribed and when anyone does post in this thread you will be notified by a small red number which will appear above the Subscribed tab. If you would like to follow a thread your interested in, just press the tab, top right and you will be given an option to Subscribe to it.

    If in a thread and you want to also post just press the tab top right and you will be given some options, one of which is to reply, press this, compose your post then press Send, top right.

    This link may interest you also.

    To get to this page you would have pressed the tab at the bottom 'Forums', this will load a page which has a few tabs, yes iPad Forums is at the top, press iPad Discussions, which is the second tab, and you will find all the Forums.

    Whatever page you are on you can hit the Tab top left and this will back you out if it to where you commenced, or you can hit the tabs along the bottom to start again.

    Playing around with all the tabs is a good idea to familiarize with how it all works.

    With the newest update to the iPad has come a glitch with our App.....it is acting a little funky at the moment.....

    If the Send button is not lit up, just hit the return tab on your keyboard first and then the Send tab will work.

    We've also found that once you have typed a post and then find a mistake, it will not allow you to edit.....hitting the return key before typing will rectify this also

    Whenever you are in a thread and posting a reply, yes the tabs will not be shown along the bottom.....once you have 'Sent' your post they will then appear again.

    You will find any threads you have posted in through the Subscribed Tab.

    No, no back button but you can just keep pressing the top left tab, this will keep reversing you and is like a back button in some regards.
