I’ve had a similar confusion. I can log in to The Lodge (and I can see that it worked because the WP toolbar is visible at the top ) , but I don’t see any new content on The Lodge page. I continue to see the same description of The Lodge as before I logged in. I’m just spitballin’ here, but perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I’ve used the same email for both my CSS-Tricks forum login and for the Kickstarter project? I’m not sure, but I’d love to see what’s inside The Lodge.
I only see a “members only” message. I’m pretty sure I followed the directions properly. It would seem that if I can log into the WordPress part of the site at all (as I currently can using the procedure detailed in the Kickstarter email we got yesterday), I should be good to go, right. What am I missing? :(
For me, my kickstarter email was different from my usual css-tricks account so I just had to “reset password” using my kickstarter email and I got straight in. If you’re having trouble make sure you’re using the kickstarter email.
Anybody actually used “The Lodge” yet? What do you think of it? How does it compare to say Treehouse, Lynda or Code School as educational resource? I was about to get another membership to one of those websites to refresh my skills and I wonder if spending my money (and most importantly time) on “The Lodge” first would be a better way to go about it.
Maybe Chris could post a couple of the videos for free in the video section so we can get an idea of what to expect?
Yes, I understand it is not exactly the same, but I guess the aim is similar – to educate users. So say I want to learn how to best create photoshop designs for responsive websites. Is the Lodge a good place to learn this?
I see. The description of the Lodge claims that one of the things you can learn is “Working in Adobe Photoshop to create the look and feel of a website”. So in what way it is not equivalent to a tutsplus course? I was hopping that this could be even better since it is about a real website, as opposed to a dummy website which is usually used in courses.
