Here’s a quick tutorial on how to create a new topic!
The button to do this can be found in the top right hand corner of your homepage. You can see this if you’re not logged in/don’t have an account, but once you click it you’ll need to log in to go any further.
Before starting, have a quick search around the forum to see if your query has already been answered!
When you start, have a think whether you want to ask a direct question to the community (such as “How do I enter a meter reading online?”) or have more of a general conversation, for example about the best Electric Vehicle on the market.
If you select ‘Question’, when people start replying, you can mark one of the responses as the ‘Best Answer’.
As you can see, you can edit the text, add photos, hyperlinks, emojis , quotes, attach files and much more to make your topic/question as informative as possible.
Once you’ve written your post, make sure you pick a category. This will make sure the post is the right place on the Forum, and other users will be able to find it easily if they’re looking for information on the same subject. Adding tags will also make your topic more discoverable through the search function.
Hope this helps everyone get started!
