This came up on the greenhouses forum, as a result of a question about the PVC greenhouse videos:

(quoting Woofie)
"Here is the link to the Learning Library videos. There appear to be only 3 topics, the greenhouse building is the last one. Click on the link and it will take you to a series of YouTube videos on the subject:
]https://garden.org/learn/video..."

(quoting myself)
"It does APPEAR that there are only 3 topics, but if you click on the symbol in the top left corner of the first one (3 horizontal bars), there are actually 15 topics there; then where it seems there is just the "customizing your home page" topic, there is also a video tutorial about group seed swaps; the 3rd one about building the PVC greenhouse is all the same topic and contains 7 videos."

Is there some way the videos could be separated?

They are separated but not on that page. Click on the header above each video.

So on this page:

https://garden.org/learn/video...

Click on the words "How-To Videos:" to see the full list.

Or click on the words "Garden.org Video Tutorials (How to use the site):" to view that full list.

It might be helpful to add a note after the header, like on the "How-To Videos" header, change it to "How-To Videos (15 topics)" just for clarity. Because it really isn't immediately clear that there IS more than one topic. I had to go back and look at it several times before I even noticed what Sandy was talking about.

I can't add a number but maybe I can add another hint to click to view them all.

I think he may mean that the number could change so it's not practical to add one. nodding Just my guess.

Hey, he said he "can't," not that he "shouldn't." You trying to spoil my fun? Big Grin

Edited to add: Actually I was thinking that maybe certain types of characters might not be allowed in that field.

I can't because my standards of web development prohibit me from hard coding a number in a field that is likely to change in the future. Green Grin! Green Grin! Green Grin!

Thanks, Dave -- I think the "view all" makes it pretty clear that there are more videos Smiling
