How to use the Forum

The forum is available to unregistered users as read only. That means that you can only read the discussions, but you can’t comment on or reply to anyone else’s comments.

In order to enjoy full use of the forum, you must register. Registered users are able to read and comment on all topics, as well as being able to reply to other’s comments. One does not have to be registered on allthingbahai.net in order to register for the forum.

To register or login, you can use either the links below the search bar at the upper right of the page., or the username and password form at the bottom of the forum.

To register, you will need to:

  • Enter a user name. Duplicate user names are not allowed, so if you happen to enter one that is already in use, you’ll have to use a different one.
  • Your email address. IMPORTANT: the board login screen allows logging in with Facebook. In order to do so, you will have to use the same email address that you use on your Facebook account.
  • Enter a password of your choosing. Passwords have to be at least 6 characters long, but no longer than 20. Letters, numbers, and special characters (*, %, #, @, and so on) are allowed.
  • Setting the timezone is optional.
  • Fill out the Captcha, and then click the “Submit” button.

If you want to login using Facebook, you will need to use the login link at the upper right corner of the screen, right below the Search field. The first time that you login with Facebook, you will be asked to confirm your Facebook account. You will see a screen with a Login section at the bottom, with text boxes for your username and password. Fill in your Facebook username and password, and the forum will be synchronized with Facebook. On subsequent logins you need only click the Facebook button.

In the upper left of the screen is a link labeled “? FAQ”. Much enlightenment will be found therein.
