    how the categories are laid out here and what is the best way to start posting.

    In the past several days, there have been a number of new members making posts that have been covered many times in various forums.

    I have always encouraged new members to 'Search' first before posting. This way you will see if your question has already been answered. When possible, I try to re-route the new member to an older post, but at times that is difficult to do because of the sheer number of similar posts.

    We try to address everyone's posts, but it more difficult when we have to address something that has already been addressed.

    So, please, read the FAQs and do searches before posting
