to-do list (2006 forum format feedback)
Thanks for all of your constructive ideas for the site, and we apologize for the delay and inconvenience of getting the recipes re-organized. The old way in which the recipes were set up had a number of inherent problems that could only be fixed with a database-type structure.
Here is a short list of things that we are working on right now. Feel free to add your own suggestions to this list.
1) Transfer ratings - we're going to give it a shot, will post a reply here in a couple of hours. Done.
2) Recipe Boxes are currently being converted, and we'll reply here when it's done.
3) Re-organization of all recipes into sub-categories.
4) Separation of new recipe reviews & Q&A posts on the homepage.
5) Adjust how recipes look when printed.
6) Add link for new recipes
7) Adjust visual display of Recipe Directory to give it a pre-change look/feel
In the meantime here, I'm going to go finish the beans category and look into the recipe ratings a bit more.
where should i put "eggnog"? i'll just leave it where it is for now...
When you say that you are reworking the recipe boxes, does that mean that our saved recipes will be back? *fingers crossed*
i don't mind the mess while the upkeep is going on, i'm sure it will be much better when it's all done!
my only suggestion would be to just have the recipie reviews on the front page. if people want to read Q and A then they can click it on the side and do that. ;D
yes, i spent some time sorting. i noted in a different thread that it isn't hard and if you're just online dinkin around (i'm chatting with buds) then its a productive way to pass the time.
very easy, if everyone helped out then we'll have our fancy new vegweb sorted and running fancy! woot! :-* ;D
random comment: i would like to request more smilies. especially a "licking lips" one. the one with tounge i just don't get. is it being delish or rasberrying me? ;D :D ;D
lol, sweet about the smilies! ;D
i can wait for things to calm down, but you have to promise to start a thread so we can suggest all the random ones we're missing! :o
First, thank you so much for all your hard work, dedication and time on keeping VegWeb up, running and usable. I know just how needed it can be to migrate information from old systems to new. This is probably taking tons of time and effort and I wanted to let you know that its greatly appreciated.
Secondly, what can we do to help? Are there more recipes to organize? Just let us know and I would be pleased to help as much as possible.
You rock Yvette! Thank you so much.
Hey there Yvette and everybody else!
I believe I have something to add to the TO DO list. I went to print a recipe out and it's pretty funky. All the links (Add to Recipe Box/Grocery List/Meal Planner) are showing up as well as all the code for the links. Same thing goes for the links in the ingredients. The comments are printing too. Also, if there is some way that we can get the name of the recipe to come up big at the top of the page (rather than the middle of the page), that would be pretty helpful. I like to print out the recipes that I use and keep them organized in a recipe book at home.
Thanks a bunch for doing all this Yvette and everybody else that is helping out! I will try to help organize when I get home from work tonight. I love VEGWEB!!!!!!!!!
Is there currently a way to see the new recipes? I KNOW it was mentioned previously but can't find it...
