    So in Lion I had a couple folders as shortcuts in the toolbar in the finder window, which was extremely timesaving, but I accidentally deleted them and now I can't put them back. I remember all I did before was just drag a particular folder up to the toolbar and the plus sign would appear and you'd just put it there but now it refuses to do that so I'm not sure why. Is it just me or is it mavericks??

    I'm not sure if you mean the "Sidebar", actually you can drag folder to sidebar and Mavericks will accept it as the old version.

    nope, he means the toolbar just like he said. and yes you are right, you cannot drag folders into the toolbar anymore. why they have removed functionality like this that doesnt hinder anything is beyond me.

    Actually you can still drag files/folders into the toolbar in Mavericks (yay!)

    Hold down the Command-key during the drag.
