a10 I've just typed something in my blog but I want to have it on a forum too. Can I do that easily?
Yes, of course you can! This page was actually inspired by users AlbertArmstrong and EuniceArmstrong - two lovely people who are definitely worth reading their posts and blogs!
To have identical information on both your Blog and a Forum, just 'Copy and Paste' it, the same as you would when wordprocessing a document. So, once you've typed it once (in your Blog, or in the Forum, whichever you did first) and clicked 'Post', then click on 'Edit'. You will see your post again. Click at the beginning of your comment, then highlight the whole comment by holding down the shift key and clicking at the end of your comment. While it is all highlighted in blue, press the 'Ctrl' and 'C' keys together. This is a wordprocessing shortcut, which 'Copies' the highlighted text.
Now you can go to the second place you want to put your text. (ie the Forum topic, if you typed the Blog first, or your Profile page if you typed the Forum post first.) When you have found the correct place and opened the fields to write in, simply click at the beginning of the comment field, and press the 'Ctrl' and 'V' keys together. This shortcut 'Pastes' the text you had previously highlighted. So now, you should be able to see the comment you wrote, in the second place. Then click 'Post', and congratulations - you've just done what you wanted to!

1. Post your first entry, then click 'Edit'
2. Highlight the text, then use 'Ctrl - C' to copy it
3. Find the second place, then use 'Ctrl - V' to paste it
