Before you have sent 10 posts you are a new member with some restrictions, one of these is to be unable to start a conversation although you can reply to another member.

You're currently on 8 so keep posting.

@Londonbird if you type @ and then the first letter(s) of the member, a list should appear with their name on it. Tap on that and then write your post. When you "post reply", it will highlight the member's name and they'll get a notification. Do you want to try mine as a test?

To reply in a conversation just type in the box below their message.

You cannot start a conversation until you have made 10 posts.

Hitting 'reply' inserts a quote of the post you are replying to, add your post below this and click 'post reply'

If you don't want to quote just type in the box and click 'post reply'

hi @Londonbird
if you leave a space between hi and the @ symbol, you'll find that the member's name appears in blue, and then the member will be notified you have replied specifically to them

@Londonbird
You'll soon be promoted from 'new member' to 'registered user' and be able to start conversations and post images which includes quoting posts containing images.

Hi. Is there a way of thanking people for replying and acknowledging that they have replied other than posting a reply? The system only let me do this once. Thanks

No. There is no 'like' option on DTP.

How do I post ? Introduce myself


You can introduce yourself here -


Once you’ve introduced yourself you might want to start a thread of your own in the I Care For A Person With Dementia area of the forum.
