How To Post A New Topic

Postby Voodoo [OP] » Apr 06 2013, 4:50am

So, you've made it to SilveradoSierra.com. Most have had some issue and through Google or some other search engine have found this forum. (lucky for you too cause it's the BEST darn Silverado/Sierra forum on the NET!)

Anyway, it's always best to use the search feature How to use the search feature first. If you were unable to find your answer, It's time to ask your question but you're not quite sure how. Well, here's what you need to do.

When you look at the site's home page, you'll notice a LOT of information.

The first thing you notice is the four rectangles labeled Unanswered Posts, Unread Posts, New Posts, and Active topics. These are pretty self explanatory.

Next, you'll notice the Forum Block. It has pertinent information about the site, including the Site FAQ's which answers the most commonly asked questions.

Below the forum block, you'll see the Recent Topics Block. These are topics that have been started by members and are active. The most recently answered topics will appear at the top.

Next, you'll find the Blogs Block. This is where you'll keep track of your builds, mod lists, etc. It's not where you want to ask questions.

Now you're getting to the meat and potatoes of the site.......Truck Talk. Everything here is broken down by catagory.....
How-To-Articles
Interior
Exterior
Suspension
Engine
Exhaust
Transmission/Drivetrain
Brakes
Wheels/Tires
Climate Control
Electrical
Towing/Trailers
Mobile Electronics
Uncatagorized Truck Topics
Truck of the Month


So say you have a question about wheels and tires for your truck. You'll click on the wheel/tires catagory.

Once you're on the Wheels/Tires category, you'll see "New Topic" on the left side of the screen......

This will bring you to the screen where you can actually input your question.

Once you've filled out all the info, you can click Preview at the bottom if you want to review your post as it will be seen by other members, or click Submit if you're confident your post is how you want it.

Remember, your first post must be approved by a Moderator. If you don't see your topic immediately after clicking submit, this is why. A moderator hasn't approved it yet. We TRY to get to them as quickly as possible, but sometimes it takes a little while. So please be patient. You'll get a notification once it's been approved.

Hopefully, this will help you get going on the forum. But if you have any further questions, you can jump in chat on the right side of your home screen, or simply pm a moderator and we'll be happy to help you.
