moderated help with Next Door if possible

Hi, all, I used to, say a year or so agao, be able to send a post to Next Door. I’m looking for a dog walker for my pet dog and wanted to post on there but it is impossible. I’ve tried different ways, going to “post a message” or “messages” and they want me to fill in the area I want it to go which I can’t seem to do. Has anyone had any luck with posting a message on there and if so, please let me know what you did and how you did it. Thanks so much in advance. Frustrated Judy & Libby

Hi Judy,
 
Try taking a look at the website below for help with your situation. 
 
 
Also, here's a couple of notes I saved to help my sighted wife post a new message on Next Door.  Next Door is as big a pain in the ass to sighted as it is to blindfolks.

From Mack i use a desktop computer and i am always logged in to next door. tell your wife to subscribe to the digest version, she will have an easier time of it.  just browse the posts, select the one she wants to read, she will be taken online, hit skip to main content. there you go. it's not the best website, but it is workable.
 
 A couple more tips.  This will get you started.
Go to the main site.  Do a search for the word, General, and click on it to open it.
Then go to the top of the page, do another search for, General.
Tab or arrow once to, Add new, button. open that, and you will get a modal to post in. H t h

Mike, thanks so much. It makes me feel better that it’s as much of a pain to use for sighted people as for us. I’ll work on it after a good night’s sleep! Thanks. Judy & Libby

A few years ago, I basically stopped using ND because it became *so* inaccessible.  Before then, it was somewhat accessible.  Shame on them.

Hi,

 

It’s better as a phone app to be honest, I use it on Android and it is accessible.

 

All the best
