SUGGESTIONS FOR DISCUSS COOKING?

Hi everyone and a big welcome to our recent influx of FoodNetwork users. I thought I would take advantage of all our new users by asking you to submit suggestions and improvements for this site. I'm always keen to hear your ideas as I know this site is only as good as it's members :)

One improvement I added today was a little feature to prevent you from accidentally posting the same message twice.

So, please reply with your suggestions. I'm talking about things like the design of the site, whether you want different colours, or maybe there was something 'cool' that the FoodNetwork site does that this one doesn't.

Thanks. By the way, for day to day help be sure to contact KitchenElf as she is the 'boss' around here - I merely handle the technical side of things.

Admin-I'm still having trouble with double posts. I think it has to do with using the back arrow...What can I do to eliminate the doubles?

The fix was only put on within the last hour. When did you last double post?

Hi Gemini,

Like Administration said - he has fixed that but what you should have done was after you submitted your reply was click "yes" on return to message versus using your back button - or you could have used the back button but you have to keep backing out until you get back to the boards and then hit refresh - much easier to hit the "yes" return to message or "return to forum" - but you don't have to do either one anymore!!! LOL

I like this site but we can not post photos that are stored on our own computers. I think this would be a nice addition to the site. Larger Avatars would be nice too. A brighter color would bring a bit of energy to the site. Like maybe a deep but bright orange.

To display an image you need to put its address between two 'tags'.

At the start put:

Code:
[img]
And after the address put

Code:
[/img]
So here is an example of how I would load the DC logo in to this topic:

Code:
[img]http://www.discusscooking.com/images/logo.gif[/img]
That line would result in this:



If you don't have any web space to put your images on then don't worry. Go to this web page http://www.imageshack.us/index.php and click the 'Browse' button. They will then allow you to upload your image and also give you the address that you need to put between the two tags I showed above.

How about a small homepage with like a food item of the month, and then featured recipes using that item.

changes and improvements

How about making it easier to do colored fonts and differenct font styles?
And why am I having so much trouble getting the smiley emoticon that I want? Sometimes I get several and sometimes I only get small window. I like the "queen" emoticon but can't always get it when I click "view more emoticons. And pleeeeeze give us more choices than Bug's Life avatars.
