Hello! Welcome to the site. We are very happy you have joined us :D

We are creating this tutorial for new members to try to simplify how to navigate our site.

We are a website of information, fun pages, but we are mostly a forum, also known as a message board. It is similar to a facebook, but also different. You can post anything in the forums (almost ;)) and we have created several different boards for you to choose where your subject fits the best.

If you click on the Forum tab at the top of the forums you will see many "boards" to choose from. All things bulldog, and even some for not bulldog too! We also have many created pages that are for information purposes, from shopping, available bulldogs for adoption, rescues, and more.

To create a new topic, just click on "Forum" and choose which forum best suits your topic.

Once there, hit the Post New Thread button. You will be taken to an editor to create your discussion.

Once you create a new discussion, or post in an existing one, the topic (also known as a thread) will be displayed at the top of What's New, the Home page, and also on the "Community News" page. Each time someone replies to the topic, it will get 'bumped' to the top again.

If you sign up for 4 Paw Membership, you can also create Blogs instead of posts if you wish. A Blog is an Online Journal~ or a diary, of your day to day experiences.

The Community News page is for all the most recent news regarding our site. You will see all the most recent topics on this page. You will also see today's birthdays, who's online, our newest members (so you can send them a welcome message if you wish), and any news about our site.

The Home Page is where you will find articles written by our site and great information regarding French Bulldogs and their care.

Please check out all the site tutorials for all the other fun additions to the sites!
