Welcome to FCBO - or For C Bodies Only!

This page should help you learn how to create a new thread. A thread is for a topic of discussion where other members can post replies.

There are 2 ways. This is the first way.

From the FORUMS page choose the subforum that fits the topic of the thread you would like to start. You might try starting a thread in the "Welcome Wagon" forum, which is where you introduce yourself to our other members. Find that forum and Click the words "Welcome Wagon"

That will bring up a new page with a lit of the threads in that forum. To start your own thread, click the POST NEW THREAD button on the top right, as shown below.

Now, you get a new page where you can add the Title of the thread, and post the message you want to convey. You enter a Thread title, its good to have a descriptive title, but not too long.
Then enter the body of the message in the box below.
If you want to add photos to your post, you'll also see a button to UPLOAD PHOTOS -- Just click that and follow the instructions.

When you've completed what you want your thread to say, at the bottom you'll see a button POST THREAD. Click that and your new thread will become live. It's that easy!!!


The second way is from the FORUMS page. Click the POST THREAD button on the top right.

A list of the forums will come up. Just choose the one you want to post your thread in

Then its just like before. A screen will come up for you to create your post in.

That makes it look simple. especially for the older fellows that aren't forum friendly. Might I suggest something about the use of sale threads. There's a lot of newbies that just start a sale or wanted item in the general forums.
