    Greetings. I see Reply to threads, but can't see where to start a new thread. I am new to this. O
    I am posting from the welcome message screen via SAFARI. I have the IFORUM App as well.:eek:

    Here's the website interface showing where to start a new thread. Tap the thumbnail pic to view it full screen.

    Is there any way to start a thread from the app without going to the actual website?

    Of course!
    You have to be in the correct Forum (on the bottom the left-most button). Then you tap the "share" button (zop right) and a "new thread" button appears.

    However, don't forget to search first if it will be necessary to start a new thread!

    Yes. Go to the action button that you used to reply to this thread, but do it from the thread list you'll find in the Forums tab. You'll find that the reply button has changed to a start new thread button.

    Looks like he did not use the action button to reply, as he replied with "quote".

    There is the action button:

    (EDIT: Took me too much time to have it skitched and so on...)

    You need to select a discussion from the list in your screenshot. Then you'll get the new thread button. Just start a thread in off topic. If you want me to I can delete it after you've finished practicing.
