    I've only recently started making resources which are not free. I've been very busy recently and today returned to work on these resources but I can't find the place where you create them - or my account to see if there has been any interest in those I have made. Can anyone direct me please?

    Hi @durgamata

    You need to go to your author dashboard. Make sure your in the resources section and you should see the link on the left OR by click on your icon in top right. Once there, you can upload new stuff in the resource management section and see how you have been doing in the analytics section.

    I don't know why but I can't find the Author Dashboard link either from Resources or from my icon. I know I will learn how to do this but at the moment I am still 'at sea.'
    Do you have any idea why I'm not finding my way around here? I'm sure it's quite straightforward but the time I have to work on this is limited and I'm spending it going in circles, trying not to feel disheartened!!!

    Hello @durgamata

    Click on Resources in the top menu banner.

    You should see a side menu pane - do you have a link to your author dashboard there?

    When I click on Resources this is what I find -

    tes Resources Jobs Community News Courses ? Store (can't read my writing)

    Next line -

    Early years Primary Secondary Whole School Special Needs Blog Tes Teach...

    Next line -

    Lesson Resources, For teachers, by teachers.....

    and then which resources are most popular at the moment. No link to Author Dashboard. Could it be the computer I'm on???

    No. There is no link that brings a drop-down menu. AND I have lost the nice reply I had received and my reply to that!!!

    Ah. I've managed to get back here - which is progress. Thanks for your help Marlin. I'll try screen-shots to show you what I'm getting...

    Do you get a large drop down menu?

    I took a screen-shot, pasted it onto a Word page, copied it, pasted onto a Paint file, saved it as a jpg and tried to upload it to show you but it says insert the picture url. What's that?

    I don't think I get that either. Let me see... And please tell me how to upload a screenshot! I feel like I'm back in the infants class.

    From your pasted picture in Word you should be able to copy and paste into the reply box - if it is too big to paste then just reduce it in size and try again.

    I use the snipping tool to copy what's on my screen.

    Thanks. That's fantastic. I will try it out before I forget.
    The other good news is that I have found the Authors Dashboard. I think the problem before was that I was clicking on my icon when I was not on the Resources page - so it didn't give the drop down menu. But now when I click on it while on the Resources Page I found it straight away. Let's see if I can show you with your instructions on screenshots.....

    Well done! :)

    I'm so pleased you're sorted - it's so frustrating when things aren't easily found.
