How do I post a topic in a forum?

You must be signed in to post new topics or to reply to existing posts. To post a new topic, click the green ‘New Forum Topic’ button in the top right hand side of the page. Most ILR discussions take place in the Funding and Data Issues forum and this is the default setting.

How do I edit or delete posts?

You can only edit your most recent post in a topic, using the grey ‘Edit’ link below your post details. You cannot delete posts, but the site administrators can. If you would like to edit or delete one of your posts, or are concerned about the content of any other post, please email details to The site administrators can then take any necessary action.

How do I complete my profile?
