|How to register:
You need to register if you want to add your post to the forum. This is quick and easy to do.
To become a registered user of the Lay My Hat forum, click on 'Register' at the top of the page:
Click that you agree to the terms of the forum, and you get to the Registration page. Fill in the fields. You have to fill in the username, email and password at the top. The profile information is optional - the point of it is to give other users a rough idea of who you are, because it is always nicer to know who you are talking to.
Anyone can read the forum, but to post a message you have to be a registered user - this is free and quickly done. We ask that you register to avoid abuse of the forum by spammers and other undesirables.
Once you have clicked on Submit at the registration page, you are registered and can log in.
You can log in either by clicking on 'Log in' at the top of the forum pages, or fill in the form at the bottom:
If you are not logged in and you try to do anything that requires a login (i.e. post a message, change your profile, check your private messages) you will be taken to the login screen. After you log in, you will be taken to the page you were attempting to go to before logging in.
If you forget your password:
If you forget your password, click on 'Log in' at the top of the page. At the login page, click on 'I forgot my password':
You will be taken to a form to enter your username and email address. A new password will be emailed to you, which you activate by clicking on a link in the email. This is so that nobody else can change your password. Once you are back on the forum and logged in, you can change your password to whatever you like in your profile.
