Step-by-step Guide

Here's a few quick steps to help you get started on the Data Literacy Project Community Forum:

Step 1: You can browse the site, but you will not be able to post or comment until you have registered. In order to do this, click on ‘Register’ in the top right or left-hand panel

Step 2: Fill in your details and create a password which you will remember

Step 3: You are now logged in. To view and edit your profile, click on the top right and ‘View Profile ‘ or ‘Edit Profile’ to to upload a personal avatar

Step 4: To view specific categories, you can either click on the individual tiles on the homepage or select via the left-hand panel

Step 5: Within each category you will find subcategories where you can start commenting and deep dive into topics - just click on the one you are interested in

Step 6: To create a new discussion within the chosen subcategory, click on the ‘New Discussion’ arrow and then select ‘New Discussion’

Step 7: Add a title to your discussion and apply your comments to start generating some engagement in the second input text field. Click ‘Post Discussion’ once you're ready to post

Note: We recommend selecting ‘In the category and recent discussions’ option just below the text field. This will mean your posts/comments will have a wider reach in the forum


1. Tag users using # and also use the # to tag keywords related to your post
