Here I will try to describe some of the forum functions which we don't notice or don't talk about too much. That is usually because there are more important things to do, such as reading a forum, or writing a post.
First - How to look back through a topic to previous pages.
At the top and bottom right of each forum page you will see this
There, you see that you can choose the previous page or up to 3 pages back.
A little known function is the Go to page
Click on that and a small window will pop up. You can enter a page number and then click OK. It will take you to that page.
Page 1 is often useful for webcam and nest information.
Suppose you want to find a post by a specific member. At the top of each page there is a block of links. Choose Members
then click on Find a member
This is where your spelling must be precise. See what happens when I mis-spelled Mutikluti
There is no such member!
Once you have found the member, then you can search that member's posts to find just the post you want.
One more hint - at the left of the Find a Member page you will see Username Begins with, then a drop down box, then Display.
It doesn't work so ignore it! It used to work but we lost it in one of the updates.
Maybe you want to make a link to a particular post.
Click on the Post Icon
It is a small thing looking like a piece of paper with one corner folded down.
It is found to the left of the word Posted
Using that will change the URL. Copy and paste the new URL into your post. It is not always an exact location but it will take you close to the post to which you want to link.
