If you’re a frequent visitor to our website, you may have noticed some changes this week.  As you know, we’re constantly looking for ways that we can improve the site and make it easier for you to find things.  We love your feedback and we really pay attention to it, so please let us know what you think about these (experimental for now) changes.   Since I’ve been away on pixels2Pages business these past couple of weekends, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to hear from both new and veteran visitors.  I’ve probably also mentioned that I answer most of the ‘contact us’ emails, so I hear about the things that trouble you and about the things you love.  I make it a point to share what I learn with the team, and off we go, back to the drawing board!

The first thing I want to call your attention to is our Back2Basics membership, which is complete with all twelve lessons!  If you’re a Pixels2Pages member and you haven’t taken a look at Back2Basics yet, I encourage you to do so.  This membership is designed for people who have recently installed StoryBook Creator, or for those who have installed it but haven’t used it, or for those who have been stumbling along, or for those who have made lots of StoryBooks but pretty much taught themselves to do it, or for Consultants who want to make sure that they can send their customers here with confidence, or – well, you get the picture!  We think everyone will find something they love about Back2Basics!  If you’re a seasoned SBC user, you’ll breeze right through the twelve lessons, and we hope you will – because like I said – we appreciate your feedback!

Since I see all of your questions, I’ve helped compile our Frequently Asked Questions (and Answers!).  Even though they’ve been on the site all along (hiding under the HELP globe), we’ve moved them up to the top of the right hand side of the web pages so that you can find them easily.  I encourage you to check there before clicking that ‘contact us’ button, as it may save you some time if your question has already been answered and you don’t have to wait for me to answer.  If you still don’t find what you’re looking for, click the HELP globe.  There is lots of good information there – like how to make the website look right if you’re using Internet Explorer or how to navigate the website.

Although we have been tagging all of our posts in an effort to help you find challenges, videos, and tips related to the same subject, we know that it’s still hard to find things sometimes.  At last count, we had over 200 videos on the website, along with over 100 challenges and countless tips!  Add in almost 500 blog posts, around 50 Blueprints, and lots of Pixie Dust, PLUS the new things that get added almost every day – there’s a lot of goodness waiting here for you!  So we’ve added a list of our most frequently used tags, also on the right hand side of the web pages.  Just click on a tag that interests you and you’ll see everything on the site that is tagged with that topic!  How easy is that?

And if you were missing the ‘recent posts’ list, don’t despair!  It’s still on the right side of the page – it’s just moved down a little bit.  Scroll down to see the last twenty posts available to your membership.  If you haven’t signed up for RSS feeds yet, that’s a good way to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

Just below the recent posts list is our signature portfolio, Going Global.  Because this portfolio is available to the public, it’s the only one that you have permission to show your friends or customers.  It’s a great way to let people see a small sample of the kind of training that’s available on pixels2Pages.net.  If they’re still not sure if they want to take the plunge, remember that we offer a one-time 10 day FREE trial, which allows access to everything EXCEPT Back2Basics, Blueprints, and Pixie Dust.

We’ve also begun adding ‘retirement dates’ to each Blueprint post.  We hope these help you stay on top of your downloading tasks – and remember to download your Pixie Dust at the same time, and be sure to back those files up!

We hope these features will make it easier for you to find your way around the website.  If you have opinions or suggestions, please leave a comment below.

Have fun with it!

Jan

    OK, I will be probably the one and only who says they are frustrated with the new look. Let me explain first though: yesterday my friend (also a p2P peep) and I started clicking the new popular tags section just to see what we might find there…what a wealth of information! 20 topics just on Photo Organization! So I love that they are there, my only frustration is same as Maria, I need more p2P time!!!!! Jayne and I spent the whole afternoon trying things that we had never seen before and I’ve been a p2P peep for more than a year now! I can barely keep up with the new information and there is so much posted to the site from the past to explore! How do you pixies do all of this? So I love the new changes, you gals make it better and better, just need to start scheduling more days to explore and learn. Thanks pixies!

    I was soooo excited to see the tags when they first came up on my moring P2P vigil. Thank you so much.

  4. Angie Lopez says:

    The ability to click the left and right arrows to thumb through the posts…..thank you so much!!!!

    Always something here for everyone, at most anytime, whenever you need it, and even when I’m looking for one thing, I usually find something else I should check out another time. Now if there were just a way to go out there and get more fun photos to scrapbook…in the winter…in the fog…in the rain…in Oregon…when I can’t go elsewhere…Sigh. (Note to self: go out and take more photos when the weather is nice. Then don’t scrapbook them all during the summer and fall. LOL!)

    Okay, I’ll admit that I am hooked on Pixels2pages. I’m not exactly new (I’ve been a member since the switchover) but I’m really starting to “get into it” now – and it’s really all I want to do! It’s better/worse than Pinterest! I’m exploring, exploring, exploring but I have to admit that sometimes I’m lost and frequently overwhelmed. I hope there is a cure for this! As soon as I get finished with the Storybook I’m working on, I’m going to go through the 12-Step Program in Back to Basics. I bet that will diminish my feelings of being lost and overwhelmed but probably won’t do a thing for my addiction!

    • Terri in BC says:

      I’m the same as Kathie – been a member off and on since it started, but last week I started the 12-Step program! Already I’ve learned new things about SBC 4.0, and will finish my first Storybook in a long time today – just in time to use up a product credit. Thanks, pixies for all you do (and the tags, too!)

    Love the new FAQ section! Also love the Calendar that was put out at the beginning of January. It’s helping me keep up with the blueprints and pixie dust downloads.
