    Am I the only one experiencing the website being extremely slow to load pages?

    Hi SeaJay, no you’re not the only one – I have also found the website to be sluggish at times when navigating between pages.

    Anyone notice changes to the way project videos are navigated? I can no longer see links to all episodes of a project in its intro page. On top of that, each video page has now links to next and previous which are chronologically arranged so one has to sometimes go though multiple links to get from one episode to next (e.g., garden bench intro -> plywood workbench episode 5 –> garden bench episode 1). And some videos are hard to get to at all (e.g., try to get from console table episode 2 to episode 3).

    Its possible to see all videos of a project linked to from one page if you manage to get to the project’s category page — e.g.,https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/category/console-table/ for console table. Possibly caused by some style changes. Pretty lame, though, in my view.

    Or is it just me?

    Hi, @selva, I just noticed that, too. I generally like all the recent changes, especially login.

    For now, you can go to the, well idk what we call it, “category” page for each project, e.g.:
    https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/category/stepladder/
    and all the vids of the project are listed there.

    One way to get there is to click the project name linked at the top of the intro page.

    Hello!

    Sorry about the navigation issues. We planned a total overhaul of the site and at the last minute realised that some existing functionality would be lost. Now we are stuck between two different systems while we give some free users time check their account before we continue the update.

    That means we can fix it but not until 30th August. We may be able to fix the issue earlier but rest assured we are aware of the issue and will fix it as soon as we can.

    Regarding speed, the site should be much faster now than it was in June. We won’t leave it where it is though. It will be getting faster over the coming weeks and months.

    Best regards,

    Joseph Sellers

    I’m trying to view the new Desk Chair intro video — when I click on it, I get the page which requires Log In — haven’t able to access the video — any one else have this difficulty? Just a glitch in the usual procedures? Will check back later.

    I noticed a similar glitch — after logging in one gets thrown back to the login page. But in all cases logging in had actually succeeded and ignoring the request to login again worked for me. That’s, just go to another link and see whether you are shown as logged in and then go back to the video. May be a temporary issue that has cropped up as the team is still working on updating the look and feel of the site.
