Hi there, welcome to PTO

PTO is basically an online forum where loved ones of inmates, ex-inmates, etc can discuss things together, find information and gain support. You already know how to post a thread So thats a good start! The rest is easy! Just scroll down the main Forum Index to whatever Forum interests you. You'll notice that each forum is seperated neatly into a different topic of discussion or location.

A couple that might interest you are:
Parents with Children in Prison
Montana

PTO staff are anyone you see with a coloured name.. we're here just to help the forums run smoothly, and if you have any questions just ask!

The site can be a tad overwhelming, so like J&D7 said, if you scroll down the Forum Index, you'll see all the forums we have available, many of which will pertain to you & your situation.

Click on the forum title to enter the forum, then click on a thread title to read that thread.

Reply by either typing your reply into the "Quick Reply" box or click on “Go Advanced” at the bottom of the thread. To quote the post you are replying to, click on the “reply” button at the bottom of that individual post.

To create a new thread, look at the top of the thread list in any forum for a button marked "New Thread", click on that and it will open a window where you can give your thread a title and type up what you want to say or ask.
When you are done, click near the bottom where it says "Submit New Thread" and your thread will be posted.

If you ever have trouble finding a post you made, go to the upper right corner of the screen and click on your name. This will take you to your profile.
Then choose "Statistics", in that screen, click on "Find all posts by..." and you'll get a list of all of your posts/threads.

Lastly, for now, if you ever get a message saying that your post or thread has been moved, all you have to do is click on the thread title within that message and you'll go right to the new location of your thread or post.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to pm me or any other Moderator

Hi P.Ann, welcome to PTO! LOL, you're doing good! Making an intro is half the battle! Give it some time and you'll be a champ at this. We all get a little over-whelmed by the size of the community here. Once you begin to find your way around, you'll find topics on multiple issues faced by inmate family-members and loved-loves across the board. Please feel free to join in any one of these to share with others who can help or may need the help and support that PTO is so well known for. You're part of a large community, a family of sorts, so there's no need for you to ever feel alone. PTO is always here.

Welcome to PTO, P.Ann! It can get overwhelming here due to how large the community, but the bright side of that is there will always be someone here to help you!
