How do you create a new topic in jforum?

ON the home page (possibly http://localhost:8080/jforum2/, which redirects to http://localhost:8080/jforum2/forums/list.page) should be a link to one forum called "Test Forum". If you click on that, it'll take you to a list of all topics in that forum, and you should see a button labelled "new topic", both at the top and at the bottom - clicking that will let you create a new topic.

And how to change the page design, i mean in which file are they in?

In the exploded war file, there's a top-level directory called "templates", in which you'll find a subdirectory called "default" which contains all the page templates in FreeMarker syntax. The CSS files are in a subdirectory called "styles".

How to connect it to Oracle?

It's a bit tricky to change this after JForum has been installed. The easiest would be to reinstall it from scratch, and use the JForum installer to configure the DB.

Hey,
          Thanks for the reply.

            I do not find anything as test forum in the jforum home page.
            
           As you told, in "defaults" we can change the design of the page, can please tell me in which folder can I exactly do that. I'm new to this.
    
           I have done the configurations before i installed the jforum, how can i check for the updated info?

Thankyou
