The Main Index page consists of a "header" section that contains links to a number of choices. This header appears at the top of all pages in TTOL. The header shown here is the one seen by Registered members; non-registered members will have fewer selections available to them.
Here are the selections:
Classifieds: takes you to the Classified Ads forum of TTOL. Here you can find special offers available, in many cases, only to TTOL members.
TTOL Sponsors: this link will take you to a list of TTOL Commercial Advertisers; the ones who pay the freight. We encourage our members to support the people who support TTOL.
TTOL Shop: here you can find all kinds of items that carry the TTOL logo.
Main Index: takes you back to this page.
Search: use this option to look for posts that match a word or phrase that you have an interest in. Proper use of the Search function can give you immediate answers to questions.
My Home: takes you to your current settings. These settings define what you want TTOL to do for you. More on this below.

Below the header is a list of all forums in TTOL, grouped by similarity. In the picture labeled "header01", all three visible forums have a yellow arrow symbol in front of them. This means that these forums have new posts in them (non-registered members do not have this functionality). To the extreme right, you can see who and when the latest post to the forum was made. Clicking on a forum name will take you to that forum.
