Test for Charlie

Why can't I post new thread from my phone? After I click on "Create" the message comes up: "Please select one of the options for Is this recipe?"
Clicking on OK doesn't do anything. what option? How to select that option? Makes no sense.

This is a test. I started this thread on my phone.

So what did you do exactly? Did you have to select IS? whatever that is.

I start threads from my phone all the time. Is there a problem?

Open the app.
In the upper right corner is the new topic icon. Touch that.
Select a category like Off Topic, Ethnic Foods, Etc
Enter a topic title
Write your post.
Press CREATE in the super right corner.
Done

If you’re posting a recipe select recipe. If not select other.

That happens when you try to start a new thread in one of the recipe forums, because on the website, in those forums, you have to select whether or not you're submitting a new recipe. But there's no way to make that selection in the mobile app, so you get an error message.

The solution is to start your thread in the General Cooking forum. If you want, you can ask a mod to move it.

That worked! I'll be happy to move threads around to recipe forums for you, Charlie!

The selection doesn't show up in the app. This is something the programmers would have to fix.
