:help: Here I though there was something wrong with my computer but guess not!!! there is a Home button at the very bottom of the page along with some of the other things such as forums etc. Like Bluewisper I to like the chat there are many of us that use this regularly. I guess many of us are at the age where we don't like change.

Where are you located?  There is usually always some one on there from about 8pm Eastern time to around 10pm or so when I usually get off old man turns in early. But the other night there was a couple guys from Fla. 1 from Mississippi 2 from Cal. 1 from Ohio 1 SC and 1 from Indiana. Once we find how to get on again come join us.

On my pc I cant find a place to sign in..... desktop format, mobile worked fine.

 

Is it my browser or is the site still under construction?

If you mouse over the forums button (next to SMF logo) you'll find chat on the list. This new layout screwed me up from whenever it happened (a week ago???) until about 5 minutes ago when I actually figured out that I could log-in (upper right). Creature of habit...yeah, that'd be me, too...don't like changes, especially when there's no warning of it coming, or explanation of WTF is going on...thought I got the boot and was about to throw in the towel.

In the past there was a link allowing access to Jeff's weekly recipes and his archive of past recipes.   Will that link be reinstalled?

 

The archive was a really great reference and convenience.

 

Thanks,

 

John

I didn't see the need for the sub category bar to stay at the top as you scroll down.  you can add a bookmark toolbar and Add them there. google how to reduce them in size and you can fit a bunch of bookmarks.

 

Heres how I'm set up

 

easy access to my weekly food store adds too....:biggrin:

For anyone who doesn't know about it, the wayback machine website archives past versions of sites like SMF.

Not quite sure what you are trying to explain.

The original sub category bar at the top was a really great convince.  Not everyone here on the sight has the web master skills to set up individual pages.

 

I really would like to see the sub category for Jeff's archive of recipes come back...I miss it!

 

Thanks,

 

John

no webmaster here. Right click above the page and check the bookmark tool bar and it apperars. when you want to add a bookmark to the toolbar the page your on right click on the toolbar and select new bookmark. Delete the name and hit ok it shrinks it to just an icon. My SMF bookmarks I just clicked ok and they stayed large

I would like it to go to login an not to set up new account as the new version is doing. Not a big deal but just extra steps.

I concur,  Many web sights are complicated enough without having to learn how to personally setup ours to accommodate each individuals' taste.  Please bring back Jeff's archive.

 

Thanks,

Agreed. The log in process is a PITA now. I prefer a one click option.

Also the new site is pain to navigate. If I was a newbie and not very computer literate I probably wouldn't hang around. It's hard to find features that used to be easy to get to. Feel like I need to know the secret knock and hand shake to navigate the site!
