Makes the Learning Center more easily accessible.

    I had a hard time finding it for a new writer who needed help on HubPages. I had to go through the "About Us" section then I think the blog to get to the Learning Center. Perhaps there is an easier way, but to a new user, it's difficult.

    I thought it would be under help, but it wasn't. I DID find it, but I just thought that perhaps more people would utilize it if it were more up in their face.

    PS I miss the old, old navigation. Not the last one, the one before that. Like circa 2011 navigation.

      Up there, to the right. Click on Help. The link is right there. It says:

      HubPages Contact Us for Help

      Due to the high volume of emails we receive, we kindly ask that you consult our help resources before emailing us your question.

      The HubPages FAQ contains concise answers to many common questions.
      If you have questions on how to start or publish an article, please consult the Learning Center, which will also walk you through the process of getting set up with AdSense, Amazon, and the HubPages Ad Program.

        Derp. Thank you. I visited the help page a couple months back thinking it would be there. I must have lost the link in the wall of text. Haha. So it goes.

    The learning center should be better signposted (I know there is a link from the help page but that means two steps to reach it). It should be easier to search and there should be a better intro, not just a bunch of disparate articles.

    Start with something like this (in big letters with links):

    Learn to Write
    Learn Keyword Research
    Learn to Use Images
    Learn how to research info
    Learn to use Amazon ads
    The rest.

    'The rest', which is not that important, is a bubbling ocean on that page, obscuring what matters.

    Also ordinary research is ignored, it should cover at the very least:

    where to source reliable and reputable info,
    how to do a site search,
    how to refine results by time limits,
    how to find video, forum info, news items 
    what weight to give different sources: anecdotal, scientific, opinion pieces, etc.

    Lol, I'm in a 'you should do this' mood today.

      I think it USED to be formatted that way and I went there a lot to check up on things even when I felt I had a good handle on things. Now, I use it much much less because it's sort of set up in such a way that I have to know what I'm looking for ahead of time. I can't just be like, "Oh, I don't know so much about this, I should check this out."

      But I'm a rare bird that hates the new navigation on HubPages. I miss the navigation back in like 2010 where everything was nicely categorized.

      I agree, I think it could be more navigable. I've always had a hard time kind of sifting through all those titles.

    I agree. There should be a prominent link right there in the hubtool. And even links to specific LC articles for each capsule.

    I agree. It is much too difficult to find under "Help," especially for a newbie. If it was more clearly displayed it would save a lot of questions being asked in Q and A and the forums.

    I agree - not only is it slightly hard to find, but once there, it's just too vast.   Will has made some good suggestions on how to make it easier to navigate.
