Error Message

When I start a new thread of any sort in the Recipes section, I can never post it due to an error message asking me to "choose whether this is a recipe". Unfortunately there's no options at all for me to choose from.

Therefore, I'm being forced to start threads in sections that are unrelated to my actual thread. I only access DC on my HTC phone, Android.

You can choose either 'recipe' or 'other'.

I have the same issue on my IPad. There is no option to choose. I go to my PC if I want to post a recipe.

I didn't realize you were seeing a different option.

It's a limitation on their end, not an issue with DC.

Hey, hey! Are you saying we are limited?

I use the dedicated IPad DC app. Smart devices can do a lot, but I've found they can't totally replace the PC.

You would think if there is a dedicated app it would allow the website to perform as it does on a PC... wouldn't you? Isn't that what apps do? Otherwise what is the difference of viewing a website using an app, or simply going there from your browser?

IPad is a funny animal. For example, you can't play anything using Adobe Flash. There are some work-arounds, but it's not the same. There are Facebook-like apps for IPad, but they don't have the full features either. The DC IPad interface is completely different from the actual website. You can access both FB and DC from Safari and other search engines on IPad, I like the convenience of the one stop, one app. If I need to, I'll use my PC, though that use is less and less since I got my IPad.

I'm afraid to get rid of my laptop for a tablet-netpad type gizmo for just that reason. Of course, if I traveled it would be different.
