EDIT: This forum might be more relevant to CC members as an example:

IMO the bigger issue is that staff and moderators are not actively involved in the community, hopefully that will change once the new software is in place.

Hehehee! Just kidding. I love your style FromScratch, I just hope being a mod doesn't tone it down too much.

You won't believe how much better!!!! And faster I might add!
Search results are tabbed, so for example I searched for the word "ribbon" and it shows results for
All (11845) Product (251) Thread (10037) Gallery Image (1506) User (5) Recipes (27) Tutorials (9)

Here is a screenshot for you:

Yes! This is being fixed as well.
Although CakeCentral.com is still ad supported (that's how we keep the website free and keep adding all these awesome new features)

On the upgraded site, There is a new underlying framework structure that is more responsive to varying monitor and resolution sizes, so ads should never be overlapping any content.

Out of curiosity, do you know if the Huddler program's review function act as an affiliate program type thing, where reviews link to product listings on Amazon etc and then the site gets a percentage of any sales that come from here?



It can have an affiliate component, but ideally it would not be directed at a specific vendor, ideally we would have multiple online cake supply stores providing data feeds of their product catalog so that we can list pricing from multiple sources, allowing you to get products either at the best price available, or easily find it from your favorite supplier. This of course depends a bit on the ability of the various online retailers to provide us that data feed and choose to participate in the program.

In an ideal world, the cake central community would have a resource to share reviews of products they have used, research products they are considering buying, and finding the best prices available on those products. In the cases where Cake Central has an affiliate agreement with the retailer, we would also generate some revenue for connecting the buyer with the seller.

You can't block followers entirely, but you can block any individual member from following you via the "Who's Following Me?" page.

here is a screen-shot of what that looks like:

This may seem like a silly question, but for the life of me I can't find how to search for a certain member! How do I do that? icon_redface.gif

You can do a search in the little white search box on the top right. If you type michellem79 and click the little magnifying glass, a few categories will come up, including one called Users. Click in there and it will list the name of the person you are looking for ;)

Thank you Dayti! I did try the search box but totally missed the user option! Thank you!

I asked this question separately not seeing this one already in progress....Here's my question:

 

When I click to see all my pictures, I see then all in their prospective categories...but is says I only have 1 picture in the childrens album.....I had hundreds.    How do I find them?
