Hi Howard,

Can I add to this list please?

In reading posts here there are lots that really belong in other forums where you'd be more likely to get a reply from people who understand the given area.  Therefore before posting, please look at the other forums and consider which would be better for your question.

There is lots of information about this....

But don't post duplicates or a moderator (like me and Howard) will: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Moderator_guidelines#Posting_in_multiple_forums.  If you think a post belongs in two forums, post in the main forum for the subject matter and then post a link to that post in the other forum.

Hi,

I saw these instructions only after posting. Fortunately they seem not to apply to my post.

Just wanting to point out that it says on the Moodle in English course page that people unsure where to post should use this forum. I am usually unsure if I post in the right place or not, and then it would be helpful if some more experienced user could point in the right direction.

Thanks!

Mikael

That's quite correct. Please post here and someone will move your post if required. 

Don't be put off posting but you get a quicker/better reply if you (try to) post in the right place and think about if you are giving enough information to replicate/understand your problem.
