1. When you want to see Media click on MEDIA and not the drop down arrow.

2. On the right you can see where to Add media. In the above I have clicked on Browse albums. Each photo is a different Album.

3. On the right end of the top blue bar you can see another Filter. This is what it shows:

As you see we have ads on the site now. When logged in you can disable them, so you won't even know they are there.

1. Go to your member name in the upper right corner and click on it.
2. Your User Control Panel is now visible, choose Preferences.
3. About 1/3 down the page are the options for Opt-out of seeing the ads.

4. Once you have made your choices by clicking on them

This should cover the basics. I will add to this as I see questions arise.

Please ask questions in the question thread so I can address them individually and keep this as a pure information thread.
