There are some functionalities on this new platform that you might not be familiar with yet. In case you have any questions on some of the basic functionality of this platform, please check out the following FAQs.
You can click on the answer to expand for more info:
How do I post a discussion topic or reply to one? For old Groups platform users: What if I want to have a discussion thread specifically for my Group?
To start a new discussion:
Click Reply to respond to a particular post. The button is accessible at the bottom of each post when you are logged in. The Reply Message screen is similar to the Post Message screen.
As we are waiting for a quoting function, you can tag the member you are replying to by adding an @-mention, so they get a notification (see more info below about this function).
How do I insert an image in a post?
You can insert images from your computer or from another location on the web.
What is a Most Helpful reply and how to use it?
Most Helpful reply is a way for you to choose the reply that best answers a question that you've posted. When you choose a Most Helpful reply, both the question and the solution get special icons and links that take you directly from the question to the answer.
A Most Helpful reply icon also appears on boards and in search results so you can see which messages have solutions.
You can mark a reply as Most Helpful only for questions that you've posted (you started the thread). Community Team staff can also mark one of the replies to a message as the Most Helpful reply.
How do I mark a message as Most Helpful?
To mark a message as Most Helpful, click the appropriate button on the reply.
What is Thumbs Up?
Thumbs Up is a feature you can use when you want to show that a post you have read is helpful or otherwise valuable to you.
When you give thumbs up to a message, you encourage good content and give a pat on the back to its author. Using this feature helps to boost the value of certain messages and enhance the reputation of their authors.
Giving thumbs up is as easy as a single click, but the impact of Thumbs Up ripples across the community.
How do I @-mention someone? What is this function for?
This is a way to "tag" someone in a post. You can mention someone by typing the @ character, and then choosing the member's username you intend to tag from the list that appears. This means the person will get a notification letting them know that someone has tagged them in a post, and they will know to come and read it.
Will I be able to edit or remove content?
You will be able to edit your own content within a 45-minutes period after you have submitted your post.
Members won’t be able to delete posts, but if you feel like you have posted something in error and need to remove or edit something, you can report your post by using the "report inappropriate content" (or contact staff via Direct Message), and we will help you out.
Can I send a person a direct message?

Thanks Marjo! This is useful information.
Is there a way to "unfollow" a post? I clicked in the box that said to "email me when someone replies". Unfortunately it's a post that is never ending (no one replying to my particular post) and I'd like to not be emailed any longer when someone replies in the general thread.
The old forums had a follow/unfollow button.
I've tried going back into where I posted to see if the option is there but I don't see anything.
Thanks for your help!
I am still having problems with inserting images when replying to a post. This is because I am trying to create 'themed' posts, so that others can add and might want to add images. The only option seems to be the internet but not attaching an image from your local computerl
