How Do I Use The Forums? - Here's our step-by-step guide to using the ePz forums.
There are loads of different forums for you to choose. They range from equipment, photography and camera brands to more general forums. Have a browse through all the various forums until you see one that interests you. You'll find a brief description about what each forum covers under its title.
When you click on a forum, all the different topics that are in there will appear like this:
You can then choose the specific topic you are interested in. If there isn't a topic there that covers what you want to discuss, you can click on the green "start your own topic" button in the top right corner as seen above. You can then give it a title and tell people what it's about. The new forum creation page looks like this:
When you find a topic you like, click on it. You will then be able to see all the comments already left in the forum. To leave a comment of your own, either scroll down to the bottom of the topic, or click on the "Leave a comment" button on the right hand side as seen below.
When leaving a message, there are several creative options, including bold, italic and underlined writing, emoticons and the ability to quote other posters and link to web pages. You can also upload photos to the forums. If you want to upload a photo to the forums, take a look at our article on uploading images to the ePz forums.
