Here are some screen shots to help you learn how to find your way around A2k and your existing and new philosophy topics.

Here's the home page for A2K. You can reach this page at any time by clicking the able2know icon in the top left corner of any page.

This lists all the various general categories of topics on A2K. Using this feature allows you to easily navigate to a subject of choice where you can quickly scan through the topics or use the subcategory menu to navigate deeper into the category.

This is a screenshot of the general philosophy category. If you never want to view any other subjects while on A2K, just click on the Philosophy link in the category menu and it will bring you directly here.

Let's say you're only interested in the narrow category of topics about Walter Russell. You'd click the subcategory link with his name:

As you can see, the topics from your old forum are now here on A2K. To navigate to the last post in the topic, click the link where it says Last Post by: and gives the member name, date and time of the last post. If you want to go to the beginning of a topic, click the topic title link.

I'm updating a user tutorial slideshow to help you navigate the rest of the site and learn how to use the various sorting, posting, formatting and tagging tools. I should have it complete later on this evening and will post it.
