I think I'm missing something here. I tried to set it up just for the publications but it goes to the discussions.

Hi Peter

At the moment it is just listed as a product/service and I haven't been able to specify the URL for the right page.

Can you tell us a bit more about what you expected to happen? I am still trying to figure out the best way to present this.

Thanks for your effort on this Monique. Hard I'm sure but I think you'll come out with a very helpful facility.

I think that there are a few ways i could look at this but lets just take my most common use and that is to identify the specific link and be able to copy and subsequently paste it back into a GS post.

It's just really come to me I guess really a bit like an RSS Docking Post. Where you copy the link and paste it to a specific place, in this case a GS post.

Of course the convenience of simply click and read from a point like this is a great idea and probably one that most would use it for.

Cool. How about a discreet post with a link to each tutorial. They could all have the tag "tutorials" and then you could get all the links on one URL, or use an RSS feed. If you like this idea I will do it now.

That works well Monique. It's workable and easy to find your way around.

. Jumping to your next suggestion I think additional tags for groups would be a great help also.

The benefits of having them all at your finger-tips menus that we are more likely to get the advantage from them.

Check this out: http://getsatisfaction.com/yola/tags/...

You can also search on the tag: #tutorials or click on "#tutorial" for any post with that tag to get to the links to all the tutorials.

Let us know if you would like us to add some additional tags such as #SEO for all the SEO tutorials.

Can you reserve a tag for Yola approved as opposed to pending? Thinking it may become cluttered because of ease. Reserved in the sense that only yourselves can use specific tags.

Finally clean posts with no response added to them.

KB stands for Knowledge Books. Peter and I are trying to create a quick reference to tutorial links. I added this as a Yola product. I have also created a topic for each tutorial with a discreet tag: see above.
