Hi JBS, and welcome to Cruisers Forum. I've moved your post here to the Tech Support & Site Help Forum. When you open the main page for this particular forum, you will see a "sticky" at the top of the list of threads and the one you want to open and read is "Forums 101 - Posting
, Accounts, Basics."
After you've read through the posts there, if you still have questions just post them to this thread. Again, welcome to CF.
