Wish I could help, but I’m not sure what the problem is.
I just went and signed out and, even as a non member, I can view and navigate everything on Lumberjocks.
Please explain further what issue you’re having.

G’day William….thank you for your prompt response. The problem I am having is that if i want to see as much as possible that has been featured on say Hollow Vessels [Hollow Forms, Closed Forms etc] how do I firstly list what has been featured up to now and then how do I add any future ones to my Watch List. The same goes for my other current interests Pendents, Rings, Writing Instruments…

Regards….George

You could use the search feature which isn’t very good or use Google. I do something like this:
Google.com> Search, Lumberjocks.com: projects

I actually don’t think that is right, but if you search for how to search a particular you’ll find a lot of ways to do it.

There is no way to set up alerts when a “special” type of project is posted. There also is no way to single out previous projects by type. (at least that I know of) Search function sucks if you ask me.

Yup … the old ‘Search’ function was pretty good, but a few months ago they ‘fixed’ it. The search function, IMHO, isn’t worth a tinker’s damn.

Send a PM to Cricket Walker ( http://lumberjocks.com/CricketWalker ) and describe what you want to her. She works for the company that runs LumberJocks, and can add feature requests to the list for the people who write the code.

I don’t know if you have done this yet. But if you scroll down below you will find a footer line of links (Home | Projects | Blogs | Videos | Reviews | Forums | Tags | Members …).

If you click on ‘Tags’, you can search projects by the tags people put on them.
