seen such a complicated forum in terms of settings in my life. I wanted to get a question answered about using my new router.

Heck..I don't even see how to post.

Why so complicated anyway.

Also don't see how to change my user name.

Searching now for how to delete my account. Doubt I will find it.

Welcome to the forum, Ken!

Sorry you found it difficult but you actually did get your post in. It just had to be approved before it was visible, not unusual for a first post. You should be good now. Go ahead and ask your router question. Photos may help, btw.

I believe changing your user name may require an admin.

Very funny. I found this site quite easy to get around, from day one. You need to get on-line more, and visit some of the other forums, the ones that are actually complicated, and amazingly difficult.

Oh yes, almost forgot. You talking about a woodworking router? That's us.
Or a computer router? That ain't us.

Hi Ken. Don't give up. You have to select a sub forum, which you'll find on the top menu called "Forums". Just pick the one that seems appropriate, or just "General Woodworking." Go to the bottom of that forum listing and you'll find a button that lets you start a new string. But to respond to an existing post. kist go to the bottom of the page and you'll find a spot to type in your entry, and a post button below that.

I for one am glad that someone with your skills joined in. You'll get the hang of it pretty quickly. When you fill in your profile, you can set up your name there, as well as an icon or photo. When someone asks a question, often someone will look at your tools profile to see if you have an alternative or better way to accomplish what you're trying to do.

The folks here are pretty friendly and try to be helpful.

@Ken Mcfadden - welcome to the forum Ken. As stated, you need an @Admin to change your user name. If you use the "@" symbol, in front of someone's user name, as I did with yours and an admin, it will signal that person that there is a notification for them.

As far as navigating the forum, you will see the index at the top of the page (depends on the platform you are using). One of the index items is "Forums". Clicking on that heading will present a list of sub-forums. You can select the sub-forum that is appropriate to your post. At the top of each sub-forum is the option to start a new thread. Click on that, enter a thread title and then type your question/comments in the box that is visible.

There is a sub-forum called "Forum Support/ Site Help and Suggestions" - this may guide you through the forum usage, but if you have any specific questions, please ask and one of the members will certainly attempt to answer your questions. See the attached image for the location of the items I've referred to.

So, having said that, is there a specific question you have regarding your new router?

Tom, thanks for the tutelage in navigation. I've been here a while but could never figure out how to start a new string, or thread, or whatever it's called. I guess it's dumb luck that I've managed this far.
