I think my question would be off topic on TeX - LaTeX but I'm not sure where to ask it. Where can I ask a question like this:

I've used LaTeX for several years, but just with basic functionality: writing papers with sections, figures, labels, bibliography, and the occasional table. The problem is that when things get more complicated I have no idea what to do, and I usually end up searching online for several hours to find a "solution", which is usually more like a hack that I don't really understand.

Are there books or tutorials that can help "intermediate users" like me?

IMO, such a question would be on topic at tex.sx -- it may be a duplicate, though. Have you perused the documentation tag? –  lockstep Oct 10 '12 at 14:06

I agree with @lockstep. It seems like two similar questions have already been asked: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/24105/… and tex.stackexchange.com/questions/51884/… –  doncherry Oct 10 '12 at 19:46
    
You're both completely right. @lockstep could you post this as an answer so I can accept it (incorporating doncherry's comments)? –  Douglas B. Staple Oct 12 '12 at 19:52
