We have been mentioning the word “forum” for some time now. Do you know what exactly is a forum? How is it different from a normal website? See, forums are websites where people can register an account and start discussions. While registering for an account, you’ll be asked to provide a username and password. The username can be anything easy to spell. And while choosing a password make sure that, you create a unique one. Don’t use the same password everywhere. If the password is a mix of alphabets and numbers, then it would be a stronger one than the usual one which people create using just alphabets.
After creating an account in the webmaster forum, you’ll have to use the username and password of your account to login there in the site. Always you should be logged in if you want to discuss something with the community. If you are accessing the site from your personal laptop, then you can make the browser to save the username and password for you. This way, every time you open the site, you’ll be automatically logged in without even typing the username or password.
That’s it for now. In the next part, we’ll be telling you about the user interface of a webmaster forum. After going through the next part, you’ll be in a position to send personal messages, emails to other members of the forum and the such. You’ll be learning about signatures, profiles and other such things as well. So stay tuned to know more – on how to become a webmaster.
