Welcome to CF
To post you need to find the appropriate forum as Cal40John suggested.
Click on 'forums' on the top left.
A drop down menu will appear with the most commonly used ones (double click for the full list).
Click on the one you want to post in.
On the top left (same line as the page count) click on 'new thread' to post.
To search click on 'search' at the top right under your name.
I find the easiest thing to do next is to select 'advanced'. This takes you straight to searching for a keyword (by post or title) or username.
