Top > SongTrellis Site How-Tos > How To Post A new Message In the Song Discussions
 Follow the Song Discussions link which appears in the link bar at the top of most SongTrellis pages. Below the list of messages that were posted last on SongTrellis, click on the link titled "Create a new topic".
 A form will be presented to you with typein fields labelled "Title" and "Text". Type the title for your posting in the Title field and the text of your message in the Text area. When your message is complete, press the "Post New Message" button at the bottom of the form.
 Within a minute after you press the "Post New Message" button, the SongTrellis server should display for you the text of your message. The response will not necessarily be immediate because the server has to save a copy of the site's internal data structures to ensure that your message is permanently recorded. Don't press "Post New Message" a second time until at least a minute has elapsed.
 If you discover that you wish to revise your message after you have posted it, you will see that there is a Edit This Page button on the pages that you have submitted to SongTrellis. If you press that, an edit page will be launched that displays your message text in an edit field labelled "Text". Make your edit with that field. When you are done, press the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page. Within a minute or so, the server will display for you the changed message that you submitted.
