New section for Chocolate

Hi

It would be useful if we had a section on all things chocolate. It would make navigation much easier.

Thanks

Not a bad idea, actually, there could be sub-forums for "milk chocolate", "dark chocolate", "white chocolate", it's a common ingredient in cooking.

Reminds me I've been wanting to do a search for chocolate soup recipies, someone asked me about them, and I had absolutely no clue.

Simply an everything chocolate section

So, do chocolate cookies go into the chocolate category or the cookie category?

Do chocolate cakes go into the chocolate category or the cake category?

What about chocolate candies, muffins, pies, etc.

We would end up with 16 dessert categories instead of 8. Talk about difficulty navigating!

That's why this and many forums are equipped with that nifty little feature called the "Search" button. When used in "Advanced Search" mode, this handy tool can narrow down pretty much any thread or topic that one wants to find. Just select either "search thread titles only" or "search entire posts" to either narrow or expand your search parameters.

They would go in both categories. A simple copy and paste will do the trick.

The search or advanced search is not that helpful. If something is spelled wrong for example it might not come up. Personially I think 16 categories is way better then 8. With the 8 for general browsing it is cumbersome to go though all the groups when you are looking for something general yet specific. For instance what category would scones fall into? When I do a search I get 106 results, which are almost all not relevent. Clicking on pies and pastries doesn't do it either.
Brownies & Dessert Bars
Cakes
Candies
Cobblers & Crisps
Cookies
Frozen
Muffins & Loaves
Pies & Pastries


Anyways that is my view on the navigation of this site, take it or leave it.....
A chocolate category would be very useful for all of the chocolate lovers.

Out of curiosity - how many ways can 'chocolate' be spelled incorrectly?
