I'm confused, because you have now managed to post something on the Forum, so it clearly can't be that difficult.
What usually catches people out is that their Forum username and password may be different from the username and password used on the main BATC website. This is because they are 2 separate services - not linked except by their name and part of the web address.
We have researched integrated (single sign-on) forum solutions for the main website, but they were not as good as this stand-alone forum solution. If we had a full-time paid website admin team we might be able to do better, but volunteer time is very limited.
Now that you are in, we look forward to seeing more posts from you.
