    I hit the Post Now link after having to choose the sub-topic of discussions, but it brought me back to here. I should be the Poster Child for the Technologically "Challenged", so, maybe I did it wrong or totally misunderstood.
    Haylen, is there any way yiu could send me step by step directions, kinda like you're talking to a 1st Grader (seriously)?
    Thanks so much for your reply.

    Hi strshne - I have a 4 year old and a 2nd grader but they could probably teach me a thing or two about technology. LOL. They both have computer classes in school!

    Here's my step-by-step detailed instructions. Let me know if it still didn't work. I post so often, I don't think about the steps now. I'll have to concentrate!

    Click into the Oral Health Community

    Reading the page from the top down, you'll see the WebMD logo in the upper left corner. Under that is the community title in green:
    WebMD? Oral Health Community

    Then there is an "announcements" box

    Then the words "What's Happening Now" in green

    Under that to the right is the orange button that says "Post Now"

    Hover over that - NOT CLICKING - and you have 3 bullets to chose from:

    Choose Discussion and click

    A box should show up - in green "Start a Discussion"

    Put a title where it says "Discussion Title" then put your cursor in the blank box and type your question.

    After you are done, scroll down and hit the orange "Post Now" button.

    I'll check back in to make sure you made it over there!

    Well Haylen, I did as you suggested, but how long does it take for a reply from the Dentist?
    Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to strshne_420's response:
    Our experts in the Dental Community address posts within a week. I hope you find the information you need!

    strshne_420 replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
    It's almost been that long now!
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff replied to strshne_420's response:
    Hi Strshne,

    I am the moderator for the Oral Health Community and gather the questions for our experts. I gathered yours a few days ago and will be sending to the expert Thursday evening so hopefully you'll see a response by this weekend.
    strshne_420 replied to Caprice_WebMD_Staff's response:
    Thanks, at least I know it's going through now. Thanks for the Head's Up.
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff replied to strshne_420's response:
    You're welcome, Strshne.
