Just a suggestion for those that are trying to adjust to the new boards. If you'd like to see it as set up possibly more familiar to u....
when u enter a folder click on "View Topics Only". This shows u the topics and date and time of the last posting to it.
Then when u click on a topic, click on "Flat View". This will then show all the postings on that topic in order from the post that started the topic/thread.
Once u get comfortable with that start playing with the other options like quoting, attaching or dropping in pictures, and e-mail replies.
I think u'll get comfortable here in no time. I think they're very user friendly once u explore your options.
