Where did the old reference articles go?

I remember using this site a while back before the format was changed. When this website was still very beige, there was a tab called "Reference" that lead to these really helpful articles on learning Spanish. But now, clicking on reference takes you to the questions page. Is their anyway I can access the other articles of which I spoke? Thank you.

Perry - Yes you can still access them - or at least most of them - the way they were. - ian-hill, SEP 30, 2009
If you want to know how let me know. - ian-hill, SEP 30, 2009

Thanks, but I guess I'm not making myself clear. I'm saying that when I click on Reference from the drop-down menu, it simply takes me to the "Answers" page, while it used to show a bunch of articles (that were not in the same format as the questions asked on the "Answers" page.)

Paralee all but the "Spanish verbs" link takes you to the old reference sections. The Spanish verbs takes you to the new Reference layout.

See Izabela's link for the Spanish verbs - that works fine.

If you scroll down, you'll see the links for "Spanish verbs" and "Spanish grammar" below the "Spanish reference" headning. Maybe this is what you're looking for.

Perry, the original Reference articles are here. Just click on Grammar or Verbs to get to a more specific article. I will speak to Chris about getting this article along with the Grammar, Verbs, Words, and Media articles moved to the top permanently.

Quentin - I guess it is what Perry is refering to - and I agree with him the new "reference" presentation is not as good. I still have the links to at least some of the old presentations, so they are still there - except the "verb" one I think.

Is this what you are seeing or are you seeing something else? These are the Reference articles (written mostly by Paralee). Their format has just changed

If I'm not mistaken, the reference articles you are describing are the same as the ones that Marianne is referring to. The way they appear is different,(not as many pictures, etc.) but it is still the same excellent information.

Look at the top of this page and you'll see a tab called "More." Click that and a drop down menu appears. "Reference" is in there.
