    Hi, maybe wrong place for this , but was getting increasingly frustrated how awkward i found it to create new thread.

    So for myself i made a visual aid..
    there may be others out there, , did search, but none found, so here is mine.

    CREATING New thread.

    1 ) Go to HOME page and scroll down to DIABETES Forum (it just logs you in, if signed up )

    DCUK 1 home page a.png

    2 ) Select an appropriate forum to create new thread in

    DCUK 2 home page b.png


    3 ) Click here and CREATE new thread.

    DCUK 3 home page c.png

    I do not go to the home page, I go straight to the Forums which is bookmarked as it is one step less.

    The forum page has the full list of forums and sub forums, click on the one you are interested in and click on the Post New Thread button.

    Edit: Clarity.

    I always open the forum at the New Posts page and use the top navigation bar to find the list of forums if I want them.

    You all make good points,
    And adverse as I am to disagree how simple it is.

    I think a poster on here sums it up in there tag line
    "It's easy when you know how"

    Even though you've told me where video is,
    It still does not fall easily to hand.

    I might have expected it to be on the home page in and around the glucose checker..

    I might have expected it to be under GUIDES..just below life expectancy.

    I then might have expected to find it under newly diagnosed, as that is where we first end up..

    And it is...under introduce yourself and greetings.

    Which is nice.
    And somewhere in my daze I hit that early doors.
    Not too concerned about posting a thread, my thread was already for me..all I did was read and reply.

    It was only when I grew more confident of the subject I wandered further into the forum, and even got to the point where I thought ..I wonder who can answers this query, which is when I began my search for the elusive NEW THREAD button....unsuccessfully, because I wasn't introducing myself, or offering greetings..

    I looked under home page, guides and newly diagnosed.

    So beautiful videos, very nicely done, but tucked away in the wrong place..for me anyway.
    So not wasted effort..I can now say I now KNOW..

    But thanks for the input
