Exclamation Cooking Links Is Now Active

The Cooking Links section of the board is now up and running. Please take a look at the descriptions under each of the link sections and start submitting links you would like to have on the site.

That's great! I always wondered what the cooking links were about and have already added my own! I'm excited to see what gets posted! Thanks!

That's awesome! From time to time I've clicked on the links area, always hoping it would be up and running, and now at last it is...Very cool!!!

Hi, two questions just popped into my head

What happens if two (or more) people try to submit the exact same link? Will the 2nd (and all subsequent) posters be told that the page (link) already existss in the directory?

(Just a thought) What about a section for food resources? (Maybe this is technically covered by one of the link categories that is in place right now?) For example so many of us live all over the globe, what's available in New York might not be available in the shops in New Delhi and vice versa. This area could be for sites (links) to DC members favourite products, ingredient sources, etc (again just an "off the top" thought )

Yes, the system is smart enough to see that the link already exists in our database and will not allow a duplicate.

That's cool GB! Thanks for clarifying that point (you have to love how smart these programs are!)

LOL, not to sound like I'm getting all "nit-picky" But what if, for example someone has submitted say www.yumfood.com, and then later on someone else submits a page from the same site. For (made-up) example www.yumfood.com/apple_pie - will this be counted as the same because it still belongs to the same site or differnent because it is a different page?

Great idea. I have added something that should encompass that as well. Check it out.

That is a good question and I am not sure of the answer, but I would guess that it would count as a different page.
