Forrst is a relatively new startup, which enables designers and developers to share code, screenshots, as well as links with each other.
When you first log into Forrst, you will be taken to your dashboard, where you are able to view graphics, code, and links from people you’re following, as well as post your own. Also from the dashboard, there are links to the “Posts”, “People”, and “Tags” sections of the website.
From the “Posts” tab, you are able to see posts from people who you are following, as well as posts that are popular, as well as fresh, which means that they haven’t had much activity yet. The “Posts” section also allows you to view all of the questions that are being asked on Forrst. In addition, you can also view snaps, links, and code that is posted on Forrst.
The “People” section enables you to view what other designers and developers have posted on the website, even if you’re not following them. The “People” section also allows you to separate which posts you’d like to see, such as posts from A-Z, as well as posts from developers, designers, and rangers, which are users who are good at “tracking down quality content with a given tag”. Also, you view the newest posts, as well as posts from your friends.
Also, on the “Tags” tab, you should be able to to view common tags that are being used on Forrst in an A-Z list. Should you click on one of the tags, you will be able to view posts that are tagged with that particular word.
If you would like to post something to Forrst, you can do so by clicking on the “New Post” button, which is located near the top of the website in the “Posts” section, as well as to the right of “Activity from your friends” on the dashboard.
Once you’ve clicked on the “New Post” button, you should be able to select which type of content you’d like to post, including a link, snap, code, or question. Also, you should be able to enter in some information about what you’re posting, as well as add tags to your post. You can also choose if you’d like to have your post viewable by the public, which means that the post will be viewable by anyone who has the URL to the post. When you’re ready to post, you can do so by simply clicking on the “New Post” button, at the bottom of the the page.
