How to Signup to the Forum:
In order to post a question on the forum or indeed answer another users question, you first have to register and create an account. This is both free and easy.

To start the registration process click here or click on “REGISTER” on the navigation bar above.

In the following window that opens click on the appropriate option that relates to you, read and agree to the terms and conditions and in the next window complete all the boxes and click submit at the end.

Once you have created your account you will then be sent a verification email. This will be sent to the email address you supplied in the previous step. Once you have received this email click on the verification link within it to confirm and complete the setup of your account.

In the event that you do not receive your verification email it may have been stopped by your spam filter. If you are using Microsoft Outlook add web@diydoctor.org.uk to you allowed senders list and this should then remove the block on any emails from DIY Doctor that you receive. More information on this issue can be found here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlo ... 43357.aspx .

If you are not using Outlook you may be using a web based email system such as Google Mail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc…. run a Google search for “allowing blocked emails in your-email-client” or the like and you should find some useful information on how to unblock certain mail addresses and/or domains.

If your mail services are managed by your internet service provider (ISP) or your website hosting company and you access your mail box over the internet then you may need to contact your provider and ask for further information on allowing senders or releasing blocked emails.

Once you have clicked on the link in the verification email you receive to verify your account (or released it using one of the above methods and clicked on the verification link) you are then free to login by either clicking here or by clicking on “LOGIN” on the navigation bar above and entering your unique login details.

If you are experiencing any issues in setting up your account please email web@diydoctor.org.uk and we will try to assist as much as we can!
