Forum structure

The forum is structured in several parts:

  • The home page of the forums which shows all the Forums. These are divided into Car Related, Rootes Related Events, General Interest and TEAE Club
  • Each FORUM is divided into TOPICS
    Topics are threads started by a member on a specific topic (DUH!)
  • You can start a new topic ( a question, something you want to sell, etc) by scrolling to the bottom of the TOPICS page in the appropriate FORUM
    • Fill in the block Create New Topic in “something”
    • Then fill in the title and the body of the post.
      Add tags that seem useful and click the link Notify me of follow-up replies via email

You can get to the Forum from your Profile page, explained below. Or you can click on the Forum link in the top navigation on the site.

You do not need to be logged in to READ the Forum, but you do need to be logged in to POST in the Forum.

Please note: You may not be able to edit a post you made before the site was moved.
If you need to make a change, please send a note to the webmaster for help.
