    go into a forum, and on the left side above all the threads there is a red "new thread" button. but maybe since you are a newbie you can't see it...i dunno. participate in some threads and maybe it will appear.

    also do a search b/c i know for a fact this has been covered. i can't help you because i dont want to take work with me when i leave the office :)

    Posting new thread & Documents To Go help

    I am new and also looking for a way to post a new thread. The only button to the upper left says "reply". Perhaps I will see a different button after I send this response.

    I am trying to figure out how to use Documents to Go to view Word and Excel docs on my Droid X. The free version allows viewing of Word and Excel docs, however, I cannot get any of my attachments to open. It just spins around with the "fetching attachment" message. I checked all possible folders the attachments could have gone to, but they simply did not download anywhere to my phone. Unlike with pictures going straight to the gallery, the test Word and Excel docs I tried to download did not go to any folder. Any suggestions?

    Thx!

    Ok...first question answered. Replying to an existing post activated the "new thread" button on the left of my screen.

    Now to figure out the Documents To Go issue...

    Yeah, it's a rule here that new members must reply before starting a thread. It's to encourage participation in this part of the forum and to cut down on spam. :)

    View attachment 61269 i have attached a pic showing that there is no new thread button on my screen... so now what? i can't create a new forum thread. all i want to do is put names in my stock texting program. the phone number is all that shows up and i can't remember all my contacts numbers and who it belongs to! i have to look at each message to figure out who it is. I've tried doing all sorts of things to add the name to the number but it won't work.

    From your screen shot, it looks like you need to back out if this thread. When you do, you should see the New Thread button
    [​IMG]

    Have you tried to go to the People app & enter the names of your contacts?

    Hey everyone. I understand that you need to reply before you are allowed to start a new thread and i understand the reasonings behind it. This is my 2nd reply. Before i posted this i noticed the NEW THREAD AT THE TOP LEFT of the page (no im not yelling im trying to help anyone who might have missed the other instructions above) but my issue is that when i use the DROID FORUMS APP from the play store i still have no idea how to post a new thread. Is it possable or is that verry important featurw not included in the app

    Yes.

    Go into the section you wish to post in and hit your phone's menu key/button and new thread/post should be listed.
