Many of you may have already noticed that the forum is slightly different in many ways, we hope to explain a few things that will guide you in the first few days of using the new site. Here are a few bullet points to help you on your way!
For reference here is Grahams post that explains a bit more about the changes.
If we think of any other hints or tips that we think might help we will add them to this forum as soon as we can.

To return to the Main community homepage - just click the RSPB logo/Community icon at the top left of the corner. This used to take you to the main RSPB page, but now will just take you straight back to the community home page :-)
Hope this helps a few people find some lost sections of the forum! I think I have all the ones in the old forum listed :-)
Mille & Fly on Facebook
nice one Kat..this should be a sticky
My photos are on Flickr and Website
Thanks Alan, hopefully it will help a few of the lost souls out there find where they are going :-)
hope so i can't move in this dead end lol
Ian, Sorry a bit confused and following on from Doggies posting. Before, the home page showed all recent entries. Now if I am in Chat I can see those recent entries but does the new system mean I have to open up Wildlife to see those recent entries as well or is there still a place where all recent entries show up.
Visiting the Cotswold Water Park. Have a look at http://cotswoldwaterpark.wordpress.com/
click on community at top of the page Bob the latest posts are at the bottom
I think it will help a few of the lost souls, but I still don't know how to post a photo to the main photo gallery. I found it, after a great deal of effort, in Get Involved/Love Nature. But not facility to upload any photos.
See my photos on Flickr
You can also view posts you haven't read by selecting "Unread" under the Latest Forum Posts title, be warned though you'll want to click on all the stickies and announcements as they have priority over ordinary posts lol
Hi Sparrow i'm wondering if you have to post it in your gallery
Doggie - that doesn't work either, can only upload onto your own page not the galleries. Think the photo problem probably needs it's on thread.
Oh thats brilliant KatTai how do i save it lol
Feeling More Positive :-)
You can save it to your favourites - just click the Favourite this thread option at the right of the thread :-)
