Hi guys

You will notice that the menu bar at the top of the site is now dark blue.

The main change to the system is the Classes Menu

You can now access all your classes from this menu.
Simply choose your medium and your subject and the list of classes will load.

Those you have access to will have a watch button, those that you don't will have a buy button

In other words the "My Unlocked Classes" button on Paint Basket TV falls away

By using the drop down menu, you can be watching the class you want in two clicks

In the classes menu you will also see a "Lesson Plan" option for each medium. This is the old "Recommended Class Order" option on Paint Basket TV, except now you can watch the classes directly off this page as well

I hope this will make accessing and finding new classes easier

Look out for more improvements in the weeks to come O0

Much easier to navigate.  Thanks Mr Clarke and Mrs Clarke.  (You wife did help didn't she)? :)

It took me a little while to figure it out, because I had not seen this thread. BUT I like it Nolan a lot better than the old way. Thanks O0

 :clap: :clap: Very good!! I really like the new format. . . easier & faster to get to a class and having the "Lesson Plan" option for other mediums is a terrific idea. . . .you know just where to start and if people are like me and take things here and there that grab my interest it's easy to see where I need to go back and fill in.
Good job. . . . well done. . . :congrats:
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

One thing seems a bit odd to me;
When I open the oil classes, you know I bought them all, I see links with a 'buy' button and below that, all the classes belonging to that link with a 'watch' button.

intro to landscape painting (full course) 'buy now'
painting from photo's 'watch'
Skies 'watch'
mountains 'watch'
trees 'watch'
buildings 'watch'
foregrounds 'watch'
etc etc... since I already got them all.

There aren't any new oil classes for me to buy, but I've got 8 buying links.

That's not a problem in the oil classes section for me, since I know I've got them all, but in other sections, it's a bit confusing to me.  :idiot2: (Almost bought classes I already own  :crazy2: good for you, not for me  :2funny: )
