First time homeowner from MD - Water Leaking from Ceiling under bathroom

First off just wanted to say hello to everyone. So on to what brought me here. I took a shower last night and go to walk out the door when i hear dripping water in my dining room. Water is leaking from my ceiling...again. this is now the second time ive had water leaking from my upstairs bathroom. The first time it happened i replaced the over flow gasket and recalked around all the fixtures. Ive also noticed since we moved in that i get alot of water on the floor by the shower its def. not from leaving the shower curtain open. So i tear out a hole in the ceiling and find that i have water leaking from under the toilet (guessing from the water that gets on the floor) and the insulation around the tub drain in also wet.
So i'm thinking about pulling the tub drain out and putting in a new seal.
But im not sure what to do about how the water is forming next to the shower. any suggestions?
ill have pics as soon as my camera finishes charging

May I suggest that you post your pics with a new thread in the plumbing forum. They're great helpful folks.
If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.
