At the top there are three icons.

Opening up “options” takes you to an “advanced search” page where you have additional arrays of options to narrow down your search.

Hamburger Menu is a menu that allows for quick access to all the forums and additional links to jump you from specified topics, themes, and many other items.

The Profile/Account button allows to check your dynamic notifications. You can see who liked your posts, what badges you’ve earned, messages received, etc.

Creating a Topic - tapping the “+ New Topic” button will bring a menu up from the bottom of your screen, and you’ll be able to preview your post before it goes out. You can also modify its destination.

Your topic will appear like this in any sub-forum you’ve directed it to. On it, you’ll be able to observe the users on the post, the replies it has, the views, and the latest activity.
