    Wow, this SecularHomeschool.com forum has gotten incredibly active. And we are thrilled to see so many new members join us recently. I thought it might be time to update the Forum How-To's article and share it again for our newbies. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of your forum interactions here at SHS...

    • The first two forum posts by a new member are moderated to prevent spamming. They will appear within 24 hours of posting (and usually much sooner).
    • The default setting for threads within a forum section is for the threads with the most recent activity to be at the top. But you can also change these settings to view, for instance, the thread with the most VIEWS at the top. To change these settings, simply click on the column header for each title to sort (replies/views/last post/etc.) You may also use the "Thread Display Options" menu at the bottom of the forums pages:
    • If you want to quickly jump from one forum to another (or even to another part of the site), use the "Quick Navigation" menu below most forums
    • There are a few different ways to search for something in the forums:
      • Use the search box
      • Use the advanced search for filtered searches
      • Use the search forum menu for specific forums

    • To see the latest posts in the forum...
      • if you are NOT logged in, you can click on the link called "Today's Posts" to view all posts in the last 24 hours
      • if you ARE logged in, that link changes to "New Posts" and will show all posts since your last log-in
