Many thanks to you, the pig and the vegetable! I shoulda figured that one out - but you know how my fibro brain works sometimes! Ha ha Or actually I should say how it DOESN'T work!
Building on my success in figuring out how to get you 'out' of a forum, I have a way to get you into one. It's kinda squirrelly and I'm sure there is (or should be) a better way.
Go to someone's profile that is currently in the forum you want to join. They will have a list of communities they are a member of, and next to each one there is a 'join' button.
(The Pig and the Vegetable assisted in this discovery :-))
And here I was all excited that you had found the answer lol!
Disregard my above comment - dummy me thought you were responding to a question I posted this morning about having trouble getting into the site and getting kicked out every time I tried reading a question in my forums. DOH!! I can be so brain dead sometimes!!
Anyway, I haven't figured out the other issue yet - I ended up having to post a comment/question in the headache forum just to be able to join that community.
Must have been a medhelp issue, cause this time when I signed in, I had no trouble getting in. I haven't tried getting into any qeustions or forums yet, though, so not sure if they're working again also or not. Stay tuned....
Did you figure this out yet? I just played around on a forum and can't get anything to work either. I tried clicking on the 'join this community' box down by the ask a question but without a question it did nothing...
