    Anita,

    This was VERY helpful, and easy to follow. Thanks so much for making it very clear.

    I carried it one step further, and bookmarked the "My Settings" page, so all I have to do is open My Bookmarks on my web browser, and click on "My Settings, Quilting Board" and it opens.

    thanks so much, i'm glad you explained the 'mark forums read'....i had looked at it but nothing explained it except for a msg that pops up to warn you that it can't be 'undone'...and as i didn't know what it did, i was afraid to commit since it couldn't be undone....i appreciate the time you took to help us with this information....

    Now, each time you open QB and log in, click first on SETTINGS to see your own “home page.”

    Of course, you’ll still need to make some other choices about how you want to view Threads, how many days’ worth of Threads to display etc. Those choices are under SETTINGS-MY ACCOUNT-GENERAL SETTINGS.

    Any time you want to see the full list of all available forums, just click on the Home button.

    When I finish reading posts in a forum, I click on FORUM TOOLS and select MARK THIS FORUM READ. The threads will still be there, but the little envelope will be gray to show I’ve read that thread or marked it as read.

    This “home page” has helped restore my comfort level again….now I can work on learning all the other tools. Using my SETTINGS page makes QB feel like home again! Now I can learn the cool new features!

    when you do the "mark forum as read"...will it change colors once new posts are added to it...I like the idea of that feature, but just didn't know if it lets you know once a new post has been added? Thanks for all your tutes...they were very helpful.

    A profile picture appears on your profile, and an "avatar" appears when you post things. Go to your settings page, then look for "edit avatar" and "edit profile picture" link and click there and follow prompts. Remember that avatar and profile pictures must be very, very small, something like 100 x 100 pixels.
