@SusanDay @Steve

BBPress is excellent. I've used a couple of others but it's all I use now.

@SusanDay

What is the aim of your forum going to be?

The aim? Perhaps for people to get together and discuss dog training issues, problem behaviour, share pics?

Let me know when it's set up. I have a couple of people who would be interested in joining.

My wife wants me to get in and see if I can learn something too.

Okay guys @Belew @Rev @Steve , I set up my forum here: http://www.mypuppyclub.net/?page_id=598

I followed the guidelines on wpbeginner.com and I think it's okay but I'm not sure.

I set up a forum called General Discussions then posted a new topic - What do you do when your puppy is teething?

Is that how it all works (excuse my dumbness).

Is a topic the same as a thread?

Will I be notified of topics created? I don't want some nuffty getting on and being rude!

Just wondering if you could have a look and let me know how to improve it, please?

@Belew Do you have a dog?

No dog. But my daughter will be 8 next month and Christmas is coming. So...maybe.

I don't see where to log in or how to start a new thread.
