How to Post to the ISA Forum

This is the second in a series of four ISA News posts and screencasts on how to use the ISA Forum. this post deals with how to post to the ISA Forum.

Watch a video on how to post to Forum


The first step is to navigate to the ISA home page at www.isa-appraisers.org

In the left column is a group of vertical navigation tabs, click the third tab from the bottom for the ISA Forum. The Welcome to the ISA Forum page loads.

In the middle of the page is a gray text box, and that by clicking on Proceed to ISA Forum link you are agreeing to the terms of use.

Click proceed to forum and the Log in page loads.

Type your user name into the appropriate text box, then tab or click to the password text box and type in your forum password. Click the log in button.

The topics page now loads with four forums to select from, Members, Education, Resources and Public,

for our example we will click on the Members Forum

The members forum opens with a list of thread categories and click on the category that is most applicable to your post.

In the screencast, I will select conference announcements (keep visiting ISA Now for news about Conference in Nashville. There has been a lot of very positive feedback on timing, location and speakers).

After clicking the conference announcements link the individual threads or posts are displayed. Here you can post directly to the general Conference Announcements category (in the middle to the lower end of the page, just scroll down), or select a previous thread to add a comment or start a new thread. I will start a new thread.

Click start a new thread. The start a new thread button or link is situated in between the list of threads/archives and the posts which are not within a sub category.

Type in subject, then type your post into the message text box.

Click on the preview/post button and make any necessary changes.

Click preview again to review or change or click post this message when ready to post.

Our next ISA Now post and screencast will be on posting images to the ISA Forum.
