    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

    Many members of SHS.com also happen to be bloggers. Some host their blogs at Wordpress, Blogger, or Homeschool Blogger. Others host their blogs on their own domain.

    But for those who are starting new blogs, or want to have a blog focusing on secular homeschooling, you might want to host your next blog right here at SecularHomeschool.com!!
    Here's why...



    1) It's Simple !!
    Starting a new blog is as easy as clicking "Create New Post" on the main Blogs Page



    2) It's Easy to Use
    The blog interface couldn't be more user-friendly. You simply pick a title for your blog post and start writing! The formatting tools are very similar to what you would find on any word processing software, but if you have any questions about what one of the icons does, just hover your cursor over it to have it identified.



    3) It's Fully Featured
    Just like most blogging hosts, blogs at SHS.com have the ability to add images, videos, links, html, smilies, tags, and more. In addition, blogs can be saved as drafts to work on later, or published immediately.

    Who says Topsy never listens when you speak?? When member Teri inquired about a locator map for our more "visual" members, I really tried to pay attention - - even though there were lots of bright shiny objects (and a bag of Dove Dark Chocolate sitting on my nightstand) to distract me.

    Fearing that I might never get back this momentary bout of concentration, I went right to work and created our new SecularHomeschool.com Member Map!! If you would like to see where other secular homeschoolers are located, simply click on the link to view. Hover over each pushpin with your mouse to see the member username.


    To be added to the map, simply click on the "Additions" drop-down menu, and click on "Simple Addition" to add your site username and city, state, or zip code.

    Of course, you may still use our Member Locator feature to find other local members as well.

About us

SecularHomeschool.com was created to provide information, resources, and a place to share and connect with secular homeschoolers across the world. Secularhomeschool.com aims to be your one-stop shop for all things homeschool! We will be highlighting information about wonderful secular homeschool resources, and keeping you up to date with what is going on in the world of secular homeschooling. But that is only the beginning. SHS is your playground. A place to share the things that are important to you. A place to create and join groups that share your interests. A place to give and get advice. There are no limits to what you can do at Secular Homeschool, so join today and help build the community you have always wanted.

SecularHomeschool.com is a community and information source where secular homeschoolers ARE the majority. It is the home for non-religious homeschoolers, eclectic homeschoolers, freethinking homeschoolers AND anyone interested in homeschooling irrespective of religion. This site is an INCLUSIVE community that recognizes that homeschoolers choose secular homeschool materials and resources for a variety of reasons and to accomplish a variety of personal and educational goals. Although SecularHomeschool.com, and its members, have worked hard to compile a comprehensive directory of secular curricula, it does not attest that all materials advertised on our site, in our newsletters, or on our social media profiles are 100% secular. Rather, SecularHomeschool.com respects the aptitude of each individual homeschool parent to fully research any curriculum before acquiring it, to ensure that it holistically meets the educational, personal, and philosophical goals of each homeschooler.
