Hello everyone!

Here are some guides on how to use the new platform. If you need help finding something or doing something let me know and if I know where it is or how to do it, I'll create a guide for it.


1. How To Start A New Thread
Two ways on how to start a new thread on a forum.

First Way:
1. Click on the pencil icon on the top right hand corner.
281007

2. A pop up will appear. Scroll down until you see Camry 8th Generation (2018+) or whichever forum you want to post in and click on it.
3. Put the thread title and the subject and click on Post Thread. Or Preview to see it before you post it.

Second Way:

1. Go to the specific forum that you want to start a new thread on. Example, Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
2. Scroll all that way up, where you see the forum Title, Camry 8th Generation (2018+), and on the right side click on Start Discussion.
3. Put thread title and the subject and click on Post Thread. Or Preview to see it before you post it.



2. How To View Recent New/Popular Posts On All Forums
Last platform you were able to see recent posts on all forums on the right side, only on Desktop View. This feature is still here but it was moved.

1. Click on the icon on the top right hand corner to the left of the pencil icon.
281008

2. Click on Popular or New Posts.



3. How To View Alerts (Quoted posts and Likes)
Alerts are notifications that tell you if someone quoted your post or liked your post. Which then you can click on them to go straight to the post.

1. Click on your account ICON, top right hand corner. Its either a picture of the first letter of your username or a picture that you uploaded.
2. Click on Alerts
3. Click on Alerts on the left side to see who quoted your post
4. Click on Reactions Received on the left side below Alerts to see thumbs up/likes received.



4. How To View and Start New Conversations (formerly known as Private Messages)
Conversations is where you can have a private conversation with another user.

1. Click on your account ICON, top right hand corner.
2. Click on Conversations
3. Click on Start conversation to start a new conversation
or
3. Click on any conversation listed below to view and reply back

(Another way to send a conversation to someone is by clicking on users name and click on start conversation)



5. How to Search
As of now, you cannot search in specific forums. When you use the 'search community' top of the page, it will search on all the forums. Administration knows this and are working on it.



More will be added.

Is there a way to go to the first unread comment in a post?

Posts with unread comments show in bold. Clicking the post title goes to the original post, and clicking the time of the last post (for example, "a moment ago" or "4 hours ago") jumps to the last comment.

Not that I know of. It goes to the latest comment. That would be a cool feature though.
