Well, I guess thats what I'm confused about. When I click on new postings, I don't see an area to start a new one. So I was looking under technical help, and saw in the upper left hand corner something to click on for the first time. Under the general "new post", I don't see anything. Sorry to be a pain.
"New Posts" shows the threads that have recently had posts in them.
To start a new thread go to the sub forum/section that you want to start a thread in, such as: "Poodle Pictures" "Poodle Talk" "Poodle Grooming" etc...
Once you click on the sub forum/section there should be a "New Thread" icon, in the upper the left, to click on. Then you can start your new thread.
