Can the tutorials for a class be printed or saved.  I tried to save the old wood tutorial to help do the painting but could not save it. Kathy

Nolan, is the following intentional?

In oil classes, the 5 intro classes on Landscape are not labelled as beginner, intermediate, or advanced.  So cannot be filtered by level, and they don't show up if the level filter is used.  They do show up in the 'recommended order' tab.

The new site is super well organized.  I appreciate that there will be a place for members to chat away from the eyes of the whole World.  O0  O0



Cheers, Annie

Hi Kathy

Are you referring to the class pdfs? If so yes you can. If not, please let me know what you are referring to O0

Hi Annie, thank you for spotting that for me. Setting everything up on the new site was a mammoth task, so there are bound to be things that are wrong or that we missed. I have added the skill level tags to those classes :flowers:

I think Kathy is talking about the HTML "Class Tutorials" listed under some of the lessons.

Nolan;  The class tutorials listed under the lesson is what I mean.  Thank you Ray for the right term. Kathy

Mammoth job indeed, Nolan.  I was a sc. programmer in my old life, machine language, Fortran, even C/C+ on DOS... then I dropped out when the Window system arrived.  Took me a while to trust those 'back boxes' where I could not see the prgm myself.  So have a little idea of the task you took on, and you did a very fine job.  I have tried the newsite on an old desktop, laptop, my new annoying Window tablet, and even this Android phone... all shows nicely formatted display.

It will be an incredible ressource when all the PDF and e-books are loaded.

I cought the painting bug!
Cheers, Annie

Islam,
It is separate from this website, still under PaintBasket:

Try:
onlineartlessons.com

It has an intro page, and explain the website.  I cannot see it anymore because when I login it goes immediately to the member only webpage.

Let us know if this doesn't work.
Cheers, Annie

I just read through this thread. It is a very interesting discussion about the new launching of the OAL website last August. Wow, there sure is a lot of behind the scenes work that Nolan and Dennis do to make these websites  user friendly for us.  :thankyou: to both of you!

At the beginning of the topic, Nolan said that there would eventually be a forum like we have on PB on OAL. At this time, it appears that we can only post to specific classes and not create new topics (that is why I am posting on this thread). Will the ability to create new topics  be added to the newer website?

Nolan said that he'd like us to start posting our work and questions about our lessons to OAL. From what I see, we are  pretty much doing all of of our posting here. There is not much action or discussion at OAL.  Just wondering if the migration over to OAL is  still the goal.

there will eventually be the ability to create a topic that is not related to the class itself. There is however nothing off the shelf that we can use so we are having the software developed.

You are welcome to post here, but I prefer that if you are an OAL member you post your class artwork under the relevant class page on OAL.

The more we post there, the busier it will become.

I have started posting my oil classes only on OAL since Fall.  I don't duplicate on PB. 

I still post non-lesson post on PB.  I just wish I could easily see new posts without having to open each links individually.  But this may come in time!
Cheers, Annie

Just a reminder... I feel a bit lonely on OAL

I agree Annie! I feel lonely on OAL too and would love to see more action there. I have been posting on both because  I really need the feedback I get here at PB.
