Place a hardcover book on the seat, while the bike is as close to straight up and down as possible, and put a level on the book. Almost all seats are designed to be dead-level to the ground. As far as forward/aft, get on the bike and lean one side of it on a wall or have someone balance you, and keep your feet on the pedals, just as you put them when you are riding, with the cranks parallel to the ground. Take a string with a weight of some sort tied to one end and hold the end without the weight on it in the indent in between the bottom of your kneecap and the start of your leg bone. The string should be hanging right in line with the axle of your pedals.
Does your saddle have a love channel down it? If not, get rid of it or you risk damage to yourself.
