Yes, those are exactly the same comments which have come up when we discuss the
Learn page/menu in the past. It doesn't really work to put it in Community.
Except for the FAQ and Animation pages, I don't think it would be a mess to have
it all on one page, because there's so little contents. But that's just one
I was hoping others might join this discussion, but I guess it's not very
How did the links get broken? I don't understand that part. Why were people
messing with the links in the first place?
Here's another idea. Eliminate these non-interactive, html versions. And
instead, upload the SVG files for the tutorials into the Tutorials category of
the gallery. Make sure they stay on the front page of the Tutorials category,
like the About Screen contest images stay on the front page of the gallery.
(I'm not sure exactly how that happens, but it doesn't seem to be via voting or
Then, on the main Learn page, we put a link to the Tutorials *category* in the
gallery, along with the handful of 3rd party tutorials which are now on the 2
Tutorials pages (text and video) And then, we eliminate both the Tutorials and
Video Tutorials pages.

The short answer is that there's just not enough potential contents for the
whole Learn page and menu.
The general format for the website, is for the main menu item page to be a brief
introduction to everything else in the menu. But if we take away the tutorials,
look at what's left in that section - one sentence. I seem to recall we did
try it without the tutorials listed, but the page looked really sad....
What's wrong with a short introduction/overview page? The whole point of giving
an overview is to be concise, if the "overview" page already has a lot of
content it's likely some of the less noticeable links to other menu items will
Duplicated content as we have now certainly can't be the solution as it's a
maintenance nightmare and unnecessary burden for translators (case in point:
I've never even thought to check for tutorial links on the "Learn" page -
expect them there if we have a dedicated "tutorials" page? - and that's the
whole reason for the broken links).
Except for the FAQ, which is a huge page, I'd probably be open to condensing the
entire Learn menu and its contents, into a single page....maybe under Community?
I've been wishing we could put the Gallery as a main menu item, for a long time.
And removing Learn menu would allow for that. Maybe the FAQ could be a separate
page under Community??
I'd not do that for several reasons:
Putting everything on one page is a mess and makes it hard for users to find
Community is unrelated to documentation. While the community creates the
documentation and certain tutorials it does not make them a community feature
like a gallery or a forum.
