This might seem daft, but even though I've created new topics before, I suddenly can't see any way of doing it. which is why I've had to hijack this one.
what I wanted to ask was, can somebody please explain webmail? I have created three TalkTalk accounts, but can't find any way of seeing more than one – and that doesn't even tell you which one it is.
The same thing has just happened again. The glib replies have come by assuming that I arrived at the forum by a direct route from the main menu. It's just happened to me again. I couldn't get any help from the Chat, so I used the search facilty instead. After several attempts, continually unchecking the Help Topic box, I arrived at a question that somebody else had asked. It was completely relevant (although unsatisfactorily answered) and I felt like replying, but then I remembered that this isn't allowed, although nowhere did it say so, and in any case I wasn't logged in. After logging in I was taken straight back to that other person's question, but then where do you go from there? There was no button on the page that said 'start a new topic, or even 'forum home'. In fact I'm still not quite sure how I eventually managed to work it out. The fault is with the design of the forum, not the users.
Each forum for starting or creating member topics has a Start a topic button top left of the member's posts in each forum.
But you say you end up on a member's question and need to know how to get to the Start a topic button.
Two ways -
The navigation indicates exactly where you are in the forums. You can always select the Home page from the grey header bar or from the navigation below the Hero image.
Let's say, in this example, the topic posted by member Labrat (Problem Solver) doesn't answer your question so you select Email & Webmail from the navigation and that takes you to the start of the Email & Webmail forum and with a little scroll down you see the Start a topic button.
Or, if you select the Browse tab you'll be presented with a menu of all the main posting points in Community. If you want help with an aspect of your TalkTalk service like Email & Webmail then select Help with your TalkTalk service.
Then the particular aspect of the TalkTalk service, in this case Email & Webmail. And that takes you to the start of the Email & Webmail forum and with a little scroll down you see the Start a topic button.
Which is where you create a new topic for Webmail.
But if you wish for individual help in other forums when you cannot find an existing answer from the search it's best to Start a Topic of your own. Community works best with a topic, an owner, an individual solution.
