TUTORIAL (How To)

Recommended Posts

Now that you have seen our “exciting new look”, it should be somewhat familiar each time you log on.

 

 It is time to get started on a “ HOW TO THREAD”

 

 This is a tutorial to get you started, I will be adding to it as we go & more features may be added.  As you may know, this site is still being worked on, tweaked as needed, & the settling in process will take some time, so please be patient.,…:)

 

After logging in, you have some options, there are tabs at the top:

 

BROWSE        UNREAD CONTENT        ACTIVITY       CHATBOX        GALLERY

Hold your mouse over BROWSE & you have options to click on.

Hold your mouse over ACTIVITY & you have options to click on.

Click on UNREAD CONTENT for the lastest posts. UNREAD CONTENT is the latest posts only.  If you click on the small bubble where it says the number of replies on that post, it will take you to the entire thread.

Another way to see the latest posts if to click on the Grey Forums at the top, it will take you to the home page, you can scroll down to see the African Grey Forums which will list the rooms, look to the right on the room & in RED will be the latest post in that room, click on the RED post, & it will take you to the thread showing the latest post.

Click on CHATBOX to see only the Chatbox.

Click on GALLERY & you can see the albums of other members & make your own album where you can post pictures & videos. 

 

On the HOME page, if you scroll all the way to the bottom, you will see THEME, click on that & you have the option to change the “look/theme” of the forum.

Anything you see in RED, you can click on & it will take you to that page.  You just have to be adventurous & not be afraid to check out the new format.  😊

There will be updates here as things are added etc.  REMEMBER: This is a work in progress, so please be patient with us while we work out the bugs & tweak it as needed. 

 

MOBILE FRIENDLY, for those of you like me who access this site mostly on my phone, it is very mobile friendly, which makes it very east to post pictures & videos directly from your phone, NO third party needed.

 

PROFILE:  Click on your profile & you will find many new options.  You can now customize  your Cover Photo. To change your Profile Picture, while on your profile, click on the small white square in the lower left of your profile picture, you have many options there.  During the transition, many of the profile pics are elongated, you can simply upload a new photo & it will replace the one there. 

 

SEARCH THREADS:  Now that all the “cancer” that was eating us alive prior to the conversion, you can now SEARCH for any topic dating back to the very first day of Greyforums.  There is a lot of very useful information over the many years, so have some fun & search away!

As always, THANK YOU for making our Greyt Family a wonderful one!  We look forward to everyone settling in & starting new threads/Topics & posting pictures & videos!
