Many thanks to all community members who have recently provided feedback about their experiences on the Workshop site. Your feedback is very much appreciated.
Some of you have mentioned that we could make it easier to make posts on the site, while others have said that it could be easier to find what you need.
One change we'll be making very soon is to create a new Project Gallery and retire our current gallery. We understand that it's not always clear whether to share your project on a discussion board or the gallery, so we are simplifying the posting experience while creating a great new space for browsing.
Our new Project Gallery will be a curated selection of the best projects shared on Workshop. It will be a fantastic place to browse for project ideas and inspiration. We are confident you will love it and will continue to work on other improvements to ensure Workshop is even more useful to you.
Thanks again for all the community feedback that has driven this change. If you have any questions, concerns or feedback, feel free to reach out anytime.
@Jason look forward to seeing the new gallery and format!
Awesome to see Workshop acting on Community feedback.
It's one thing to create a site, but for the community to be actively part of building on its functionality is a terrific step forward. Welldone.

If I click on "Workshop" I get 12 projects displayed.
Below this you can click on "Get More" - and another 12 projects will appear.
Lets say I load 36 projects and click the 36th one - and look at the thread.
Once finished looking - if I click back it defaults to the original 12 projects.
So you have to start again - and click "Get More" till you were where you left.
Dunno if that makes sense - but is there are better way of doing this, without having to constantly reload?
Or am I navigating incorrectly?
Hi Graeme (@Noyade)
There's loads of different ways to browse. I take it you are referring to browsing the latest posts on the homepage? The homepage is ordered by discussions which have had the most recent activity on them. If you're on a PC and browsing this way, I suggest you right click on the post you want to open, then select to open it in a new tab. That way when you are finished reading the post, you can go instantly go back to where you had scrolled down to.
You can do the same thing on our new Project Gallery - https://www.workshop.com.au/gallery - and on the gallery you can refine your display to showing the most popular or the most recent first, as well as only showing projects with a particular label, such as Renovation or Landscaping.
I'll also give you a few more sneaky ways to browse posts that you might like to bookmark:
This view shows you the most recent posts that you personally haven't read (you must be signed in)
This view shows you the most recent discussion topics that have been started
This view shows you all the most recent posts that have been made across all Workshop discussions
You can obviously also browse individuals boards like Kitchen or Garden, or choose to Browse by Topic, or perform a combination of both.
Hope that helps. Please feel free to give me a shout anytime you need a hand.
Many thanks Jason! 😊
That works better!
I'm not a smart man with the computer.
Hi Graeme (@Noyade)
Just wanted to let you know that based on your comments as well as feedback from other members we have improved browsing on the site. Now the site will remember how many times you click on the Load more button so that when you click on a project or discussion and then return to browsing you can get straight back to where you were up to. Hope you now find the site more convenient to browse.
Feel free to get in touch anytime you need a hand getting the most from Workshop. Thanks again for your feedback.
