Yeah, a lot of the settings just require some trial and error to figure out. The product and menus have developed so fast that I haven't been able to keep up with all the new features and how they work.
I'll be putting some new servers in over the next couple weeks and then I hope to get back to setting up and testing some new sites to see if I can get back up to speed.
