    Find the appropriate forum, at the top left hand side click New Thread, enter comments (be sure to include a title), click Submit at the bottom. Easy :D

    Go to the forum in which you want to post a thread. In the upper left hand corner you should see a button that says "post new thread". Click on it and type in the subject and the body of the post and you are on your way.

    cclcal, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    this is what i get when i try to post new thread.

    thanks!

    you can only post in the Marketplace if you have a paid subscription. However if you are just "in search of" a post in the general eyecare forum may be ok, PM hcjilson to ask him he's a moderator, I'm not.

    I would suggest starting a new page, please. Mr. Jilson was a valued member of this community until his passing not too long ago. You probably did not realize this, so I am not complaining, but it was a bit of a shock to see his name come up on a thread. Thanks in advance. Start a new thread and ask away.......you will find a receptive audience.
