  4. Read his/her question or comment
  5. Click Reply button
  6. Type your answer in the box
  7. Click the Submit button

If you need to post a new topic or question

  1. Click the +Thread button on the upper-left side of the screen
  2. Type your comment or question in thebox
  3. Click Submit button (Avoid using the Save button. This feature does not work properly).
