Creating New Thread Topic
To create a new topic go to the Forums tab then choose the forum where you want to post the new thread.
Beard Journey Discussions if you want to track your progress but have previously grown beard.
Facial Hair Help, Questions & First Beards, as name shows if you have some questions or are growing your beard for the first time.
General Beard-related Topics where all general threads about beards go.
Teen Beards if you are under 20 years old.
In each forum you will have the option to see Topics made by users or Sticky topics which usually contain some important information.
Once you have chosen the forum to post, press Menu button (one that looks like small garage doors, it should be on the left, right next to middle Home button) and then choose New Topic.
You will now have option for making new topic.
Now choose topic name and type the text in the Subject box. Enter the post text content including pictures, then press Submit to save the post.
Adding Pictures to Posts
If you want to post pictures you have two different ways, you can either choose photo from your Yuku account gallery or make new photo with your smart phone camera (green icon) or insert image link (red icon)
Although camera functions vary from one smartphone to another, you should be able on your smartphone to do things like organize pictures into folders or albums, crop pictures and set the resolution to no more than 640 X 480. Inserting pictures from the smartphone eliminates moving them to your Yuku account albums or through a third party repository such as Imageshack.
