If you haven’t contacted me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a username and password to allow you to access restricted areas including posting articles or contributing to the forum, please do so.
If you have done this, then there is just one small confusing point that will occur when you logon for the first time. i.e. instead of going directly to the home page and menu navigation, a dashboard will be presented to you to add more details about yourself. Once you have added extra information or declined by just clicking on the “Barbary Class Ketch” wording top left, you will not go this route again.
