A few items to note:

Speed:  The site will take some time to cache and get up to speed, so there may be some slowness intially

Email will be slow as well as the job queue will need to catch up on all the various tasks

Hi there - can you give me more detail as to the issue you're experiencing with search (what you were searching for and where)?  The best place to make problem reports is in this support forum, where we're all watching to make sure things go as smoothly as possible by ironing out any problems that may arise during this switch.

I am having the same issue with search. The old page have the search option where you type any word of what you were looking for and show all the pics.. now I can't do that anymore. EXAMPLE: If I was looking ideas for Hello Kitty it showed me all hello kitty cake pics . It was besides gallery . Maybe is me but I dont see the search option anywhere , just on the top part but thats different. I hope somebody can help!

Hi! This is the first time I've visited the website since all the changes have been made. I went to look at my pictures and it pulls up 9 photos. None of the cakes are mine. They're all great, but I didn't make them. What happened to my photos? I would really like to see the work that I've done. Please let me know if maybe I looked in the wrong place????

post #8 of 161

Hi,

 

None of the cakes are mine in my photo gallery...there's lots of photos there but absolutely none of them are mine!  How do I remove them and where are my photos???

 

Thanks-

 

Lisa

Also, why does it say I'm a "newbie" when I've been a member for 5 years?  It also says I only have one post....I"ve had 100's of posts...????  Do I need to start over and create a new profile?

 

thanks!

 

Lisa

post #10 of 161

Hi, just wanted to drop in to say that I really like the changes and that I have been trying out some of the new functionality.  I just uploaded a photo though, and while the process worked well, it was a little cumbersome to figure out which picture I was selecting as my main cake photo.  When I clicked on tags it told me the photo names, so I was able to select based off of that, but it would be nice if it was clearer.

 

I noticed the same situation as others mentioned about seeing others cakes in my photo gallery.  I believe the images we are seeing are the lead photo for that category.  I had one cake under "Celtic" cakes, but the photo displayed wasn't mine.  I assumed it was probably the last (or first) images in that gallery.  I have many cakes under the "Round" category, but it just showed the category once with a subheading that read "9 cakes".  This must be the default behavior for displaying category images.

I can't figure out how to make it smaller so I dont have to scroll sideways.
 

 

Hi there, we are working to restore the photos to correctly reflect yours and not someone else's. There's a thread about this issue in the technical support area: http://cakecentral.com/t/750575/pictures-in-my-profile-arent-my-pictures

 

You can try edit your view in FF by going: View -> Zoom -> Zoom out. Let me know if that worked for you.
