For those who are coming back after the upgrades I wanted to give you a handy tip that you should really look into first, if you haven't done so already.

Thanks, Tulip!

I've got mine set at 50 topics per folder and 30 posts per topic, and to jump to the first unread post.

Moss:
I second what Tulip said. It is frustrating, but it does get easier with time. I remember when we were all grumbling that we never could have a clean page again (the boards used to refresh after 40 posts), but then they introduced folders and other features. It took us a few weeks to get the hang of it, then it became a routine, and not we've got to find a new routine.

Tulip and Moss:
This is what I learned today. If you are wondering to whom a person is posting to, go to the top of that person's post. Next to the time stamp, right-click the subject line (in blue) - it'll take you to the post that person was replying to. For example, I'm now replying to Tulip's post, and that url is: http://forums.ivillage.com/t5/Multicultural-Bilingual-Buzz/Handy-Tip-of-the-Day/m-p/115795657#M7480

Right now I am loving loving loving autosave. I'm playing on a new laptop, the touch pad is iffy, and somehow just now it took me away from the post message page. With the old boards I would have lost whatever I had typed. Now I just go to my Lithium profile and click on the link. It brings me back to the post message page, replete with nearly all that I had typed.

Nice tip Poppy, I hadn't noticed that one.
