I created a new forum, named it for now.. How to guides - Technical articles
I did Turn on forum introduction.
Enter links to the articles in Forum Introduction Body
put three links in there using html
one link to a page within britbike domain but outside the forum
one link to an external page
one link to a thread I created within this forum
for now only admin can create new threads or reply, users can read threads but not guests they can only see the forum.
Now I need to think how to go from here
