Feel free to try things out with the forum software. You'll likely want to attempt starting new threads and managing attachments first. If you're familiar with how to do those things, why not try out the advanced formatting editors? Go to My Settings -> Edit Options -> (scroll way down to the bottom of the page) and change from the Basic Editor to either the Standard Editor or the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) Editor. I don't think the WYSIWYG editor is available in Mozilla browsers, so I'm most familiar with the standard editor. UPDATE: April 19, 2005 - I've taken away the ability to reply as this isn't meant to be a Q+A forum. Since starting a new thread and posting a reply are essentially the same task, I figure for testing purposes it isn't needed.
