How do I locate the right discussion?
From the home page of the community, you can navigate to the appropriate discussion through the "Categories" menu.
The "Categories" menu is a drop-down list of the main types of products.
If there are sub-categories, there will be a drop-down list on the page.
Click the title of the forum most appropriate to the subject about which you wish to learn or share information.
You can also find the appropriate forum or blog by typing in the Search field and choosing an option.
How do I participate in the discussion?
Once you have navigated to the appropriate discussion area, you can participate in several different ways.
The "Check mark" icon indicates that this particular discussion has a reply that has been marked as the solution to the original question. When you click through, the post with the solution will be located directly below the original post containing the question. You can also navigate through the replies to see the full thread.
You can also navigate to a category, then to a forum, based on your choices above.
How do I create a post or reply to one?
