Searching my bookshelf
  • Something has gone "off" here. When I search my bookshelf to look for a particular cookbook, instead of returning a page with two tabs of information, Recipes and Books-Mags-Websites, it returns what used to be tabs as bullet points above the list of recipes (if any). The bullet for Books-Mags-Websites has an active link, but clicking it leads to the same page being presented, so there's no way of looking at the books.
    Style sheet's gone awry? Something's gone awry. Hope it can be fixed soon.

  • I can't even review recipes since when I go to my bookshelf and type in the name of the cookbook it takes me to a link and then when I click on it nothing happens.
  • I did figure out how to get to the book to do the review but I had to flip through each page until I got there. I tried going to the end of my shelf first, then go back since it was closer to the last page than the first. When I clicked the button to go to the last page it said I had no cookbooks on my shelf, so I had to start at the first page and go from there.
  • At least I'm not the only person having the problem!
    You can always do a "global" search for the book, rather than searching from your bookshelf. Flipping through your bookshelf takes too too long.
  • I also noticed that adding tags changed - it works alright, but it might be helpful to add something like 'separate by commas' because it's not entirely clear that that's what you need to do.
  • I know that Andrews was migrating this site to a less expensive web hosting service. I'm guessing the bugs arose in the transfer -- or in streamlining the home page -- and I hope they are easy to fix.
  • Kaye16, how do you do a "global" search for a book?
  • Use Search in the red menu bar across the top. Fill in the title, then search. If there are several entries (as there can be, especially if it's a web site you're looking for, I find), the icon on the right tell you if it's on your bookshelf.
  • I tried that but it takes me to the same screen where it lists the book and when you click on it nothing happens. It seems the only way I can get to the book I'm looking for is to scroll through my bookshelf pages.
  • That's puzzling. This is what's working for me.
  • When you click on the book and get nothing, there is a search option on the left--enter the book name again and it will pop up.
  • Hi all. Sorry, but I'm not on the forums much and didn't see this discussion until someone emailed me. I'll have to look to see what went wrong. When I removed the links at the top of the pages to the old Articles section I probably deleted something important! Hopefully it won't be hard to find out what I did wrong.
  • Better late than never - I fixed this. It was an old bit of code that snuck back in and interefered with the tabs.

    I'm also going to turn off new registrations now to stop spammers, at least until I can work out a better way of dealing with them. Maybe ask them to email me their favourite recipe to prove they're real!
  • Thank you for taking care of all that spam, Andrew.
  • Thank you, Andrews, and also thanks for fixing the search feature.
  • Hurrah! The multiple index feature is back--thanks, Andrew!
  • Thanks so much for the fix, Andrew!
    Really too bad about the spammers. Your solution sounds like a good idea. Hope it's not too much trouble for you.
  • Adding my thanks Andrew.
