Forum Help

  • Registering
    • You must register as a “user” of the NZCCP website in order to use the forums.  To do this, go to “Forum Access” and register.
    • Registration is open to anyone, but improper use may result in being removed from the user list
    • In order to prevent registrations from spam users, please use a “sensible” user name (ie. one that can be recognised as a real name) and complete the box with the “captcha” code in it.
    • Once registered, you will receive an email with a password.  Use this to login – you can then change your password to one you will remember and begin using the forum.
  • Using the Forums
    • Access the forum by using either the “access forum” menu item on any page of the site or the link for forum access at the top of this page.
    • Once logged in to the forum, use the “user control panel” to set your preferences, profile, own password  etc.
    • Use the links to navigate around the forums and topics within each forum.
    • To be notified of new posts, “subscribe” to that forum or topic (see link at bottom left of forum or topic)
    • You will only be able read and create posts for the discussions you are entitled to view.
