I'm sorry I have to say this, as I used to love this site for the tutorials and videos it provided, but this site is poorly designed.
Firstly, the videos have been taken and hidden away in a path that is not openly advertised on the main site - it requires a search through a thread in the forum to find them. These videos far outshone the currently presented videos from PluralSight. It
also appears that PluralSight is a premium site - are you going to start charging your users for the privilege soon? Please bring back these videos to the central domain of ASP.NET - they are an invaluable learning aid to beginners and seasoned developers
alike; they actually show you how, not just tell you.
Secondly, some of the content of your site redirects to the Code Project - a respectable site in itself, but not as reliable in its content as this one. Some of the videos that are mentioned on the Code Project are also blocked by our web filters (though
that's obviously our problem and not yours).

I agree it has been hard to find the videos through navigation.
I did manage to find them after some effort. Here is the link...

I also miss the Learn tab where things were centralized and handy to follow when new things were there to see and study.
For the mean time I use www.asp.net/sitemap to find the stuff I'm after again.

Thanks for the feedback, Paul. The ASP.NET team has been working out how to address your primary concern -- that the vast number of tutorials and videos present on the site are not readily accessible. You should see an improvement in this area in the coming
In the meantime, I would suggest using this post to help you find more of the site content:

Thanks for your replies, everyone.
I look forward to seeing the results of your teams hard work, Terri. I did visit the suggested post, if I'm honnest, after a forum search. Just one little tweak I would suggest with all of the videos and tutorials not on your site - I would give the links
a _blank target so that the original page isn't lost.
