What do the icons mean?

I might be being very thick here and just not seeing what is in front of my nose but can you tell me where on the site you can find out what all the icons mean. I mean the ones at the side of the TP headings eg closed envelope, open envelope, orange envelope, blue one, yellow V by a heading etc. Thanks. Sorry to be so stupid!!!!

You are not stupid. The icons can be puzzling.

If you scroll down the main front page of `Support for people with dementia and their carers`, you`ll see all the envelopes and what they mean.

The yellow V shows posts you have not yet read.

Just to add to Sylvia's fine advice. If you hover your mouse over any of these icons you should get a little description poping up. Hope this helps.

Please do ask if you need any more advice using the forum. The software used to support the forum is written by techies so it is not always obvious.

Kind Regards
