Guide to IP.Board for iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
1. Downloading the application:
Open iTunes on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and search for "IP.Board Communities" (or just IP.Board, anything close works fine).
The IP.Board application is the blue one wit the white V on it.
Download and install.
2. Logging into PF:
After you installed the application, tap it to open (obviously).
Then you will need to add PF to your list of IP.Boards. This application can be used to view any forum that is using IP.Board.
Find the + button at the top right corner, and fill in your login info for PF like so:
Title: Paramore Fans (this can be whatever you want to call PF)
User: (your forum username here)
Password: (your forum password here)
Hit SAVE at the top right corner.
Now you can view the forum whenever you want, no need to log in ever again on this app. Just tap and go.
3. Using PF on the app:
First thing you will see is the board index.
At the top, you can tap on the "Paramore Fans" title bar to go back to the index at any time.
Each category and forum is represented, as well as whether or not a topic has new posts.
At the bottom, you will see:
Back button: takes you back to the last page.
Forward button: takes you forward after going back.
Refresh button: refreshes the page
Camera button: used for uploading an image to the board or gallery
Write button: used for updating your status easily from any page
Arrow button: used for jumping back to the forum list, or sharing the link to the board in an email, or opening the page in Safari.
4. Using your control panel
If you tap the light arrow to the top right of the page in the title bar, you will see some useful pages:

Everything is pretty simple to figure out. Tap a topic to view it, or tap a page within a topic to view that page.
6. Starting a topic:
Starting a topic is easy. After tapping "new topic" just follow the on screen directions. Choose a title, description (optional), and begin typing your content.
