You've just done it.

But don't forget to go to the relevant forum(s) to search and browse first for information that has already been posted about your question. It's likely that very few members will post to your specific thread, but if you read all the threads on the topic about which you're asking, you will get much more information from the collected wisdom of many, many members posting in many threads. It's also good manners to have searched and browsed first to make sure that your question hasn't already been answered.

You have to go to the "Home" page first, then look for "Boards" and follow the directions below. It is confusing, and could certainly be easier, but that's the way it is! Good luck!

is only used to start a new thread on a forum and only appears at the top and bottom of a forum containing threads.

is used to post a post on an existing thread and appears at the top and bottom of the thread.

In existing threads, there will also be a Quick Reply box where you can quickly enter a reply without using Post Reply. You will need to click the quick reply button on a post in the existing thread to activate the Quick Reply box before you can type into it.

To post a reply to a particular post in a thread, click the button on the post you want to address. The Reply to Thread screen will open with the quote already in the message text box with the gray frame. You type your reply in the text box, then click the Submit Reply button. Your post will appear on the thread with the quoted text as well as your message as I have done with this reply to you. That way anyone reading the thread will know which particular post your reply concerns.

If you ever want to quote more than one post in a thread, click on each of the posts in the thread you want to address. The icon will turn red on those posts. Next, click the Post Reply button. Again, the message text box with the gray frame will appear with all the quotes. You type your reply in the text box and then click the Submit Reply button. Again, your post will appear with the multi-quotes.

Don't forget! You must be logged in to the Cruise Critic message board with your user name and password to see the buttons mentioned above and to post on any threads or forums. Especially any of the Roll Call forums. Roll Calls are for logged in members only.

To use our site, start at our main message board screen by clicking here: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/index.php.

Next, make sure you are logged in with your user name and password. The log in area is in the upper right corner of any Cruise Critic message board screen. Please note, the log in process is case/space sensitive. Be sure you type your user name and password correctly. Also, don't forget to check the "Remember Me?" box to set your cookie. A cookie is a small piece of information stored by your browser to help identify who you are. Cruise Critic's message board uses cookies to keep you logged into your account as you move from page to page.

The main message board page will list all of the forums we have to offer. Select the forum that best matches the topic you'd like to discuss by clicking the title which is a link.

You will be presented with another message board grid, listing all of the topics of conversation (we call each one a thread) in the forum. There will be many pages of threads.

If you do not see your topic on the list, select the New Thread button at the top or bottom of the forum and post the first post of your new thread.

If you see your topic, select it by clicking its title which is a link to open the thread containing the posts. There may be more than one page of posts.

After reading the posts and if you want to post on the thread too, use the Post Reply button at the top or bottom of the thread page. The Reply to Thread screen will open. You type your message in the text box with the gray frame. When done, click the Submit Reply button and your post will appear on the thread.

If you ever wonder what some of the Cruise Critic Message Board icons/buttons/arrows mean, just use your mouse to slowly hover your cursor over the item and most often there will be a pop-up with the name or action.

I hope this additional information will be helpful.
