Starting a new thread ......

I want to start a thread to ask a question about making applesauce. I went to "Fruit and Nuts" and wrote my question. When I hit "Create", a message came up and asked me to choose an option "Is this a recipe?". I can't find such an option. I'm confused!? Can anyone help me?

Hi Shelly. It's not necessary to use tags. Give your post a title and then simply type in what you want to say in the box, and hit submit.

Thanks, Kayelle, but I am trying to post on the DC app. It is different from this site. I have no idea how my question landed up here. I posted my question on the app. Obviously, I'm technically challenged. The app is a lot more difficult for me to navigate than this site. The pop-up ads here drive me crazy, but I may just have to come back anyway. Thanks, again!

Ad-Block Plus. Install it and your pop-ups...well,don't! Many of use use and love it. And it's free.

I think they have versions for all of the browser. This one is for Chrome: https://adblockplus.org/

We spoke about this a little while ago. Didn't my advice help?

Perhaps it had something to do with "apps," of which I have no knowledge.

Hi Katie ~
I tried what you suggested, but, unfortunately, it is difficult for me to navigate the DC app. I am using an iPad and I think that might be part of the problem. Sooo, I'm back here and will try some of the AdBlock sites that have been mentioned. Thank you for your help. I appreciate your efforts.

Okay. I understand. Unfortunately I have no experience with iPads or apps. I hope someone comes along soon to assist.

It's all okay, Katie. I'm back using the DC website and am familiar with posting here. I had gone to the DC app to avoid the pop-up ads here, but this is a much easier site to navigate, so I'm back. I'll do as others have suggested and download an AdBlock system that will block these silly ads. Thanks, again, for your concern and help.

I use the DC iPad app almost exclusively, and have managed to start new threads, though for the life of me I'm not sure how. I tried a "test" thread a while ago, and got the same message you did, Shelly. I'll play around with it some more.
