how do I post a comment/question

It wasn't intuitively obvious/readily discoverable just how I could add a post

Maybe this is just a critique, not sure.

 

To post a message you have to go to Forums | [Forum Name] | and near the top is a link for "New Message".

 

I agree that it can be a little non-intuitive if you just want to go to the Community site and post a message, but then you'd have to pick which forum it should go into and such.

So how did you end up posting your question? I still can't figure it out. From first principles...where do I go to find this elusive "Post a question" button??

I am still unable to find the place where I can post a question about powerbi seevice which is unable  to read data files from file server

seriously though where is the button, the button at the top of forums taht says "new" isn't a buttonpower bi sucks.PNG

Hello @Anonymous  - In the screenshot you are on the homepage of the community. 'New' here indicates how many new topics are in the corresponding board. To make a post you, need to navigate to the discussion board that most closly aligns with your topic, and select 'New Message'. 

 

More information about using the community can be found in our support area, specifically check out: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Using-the-Community/Asking-Answering-and-Accepting/ta-p/680259

There is something more to this apparently.

 

I searched for this becaue I can't figure out how to post a question.  I find this thread...I read the link you referencee...I tried several groups.  

 

To be really picky there is nothing called "discussion board" anywhere on this site...so I'm assuming you mean navigate to the "Forum" that "most closly aligns with your topic".  Ok...I did that.."Let's Talk Data" 

 

I'm logged in...I see the New Post "count" but it's not a link...so where is the illusive "New Post" link?

 

I'm sure I'm making some crazy noob mistake but I can't seem to figure it out...so kick me in the right direction please!  🙂

Hey @WallyCode - You are correct, I should have referred to 'Forum', my apology. Using the image you recently posted as referrence, click on 'Custom Visuals Development Discussion'. Once you are there, select 'New Message'.
