I have completed the conversion to the new software. Look for lots of little features to "pop up" soon as I turn them on. I'll be fixing stuff all day. If you see anything funky or have problems post them here.
Ok, I had a problem logging in. When the main page loaded, I immediately realized that the new software was up and running. Goodie! I see there is a login on the upper right corner of the main page. I knew I would have to login manually, as my browser's Wand (password) function wasn't set for this page yet. I logged in, and when my browser asked me if I wanted to remember the login handle and password for that page, I clicked yes. This normally will set the cookie into my browser, and automatically log me into the site. I got to the index page, but was NOT logged it. I wasn't able to log in until I replied to this post and manually logged in, while telling my browser NOT to remember my login and password for this page.
I'm using a laptop, with Win98, and the browser I'm using is Opera v.7.54.
I have another pc, with WinXP, and use the same browser. I don't know if I'll have problems with that one or not. I'll have to try it later and let you all know.
At first glimpse, I am not impressed, old one was better. Now there are those horrible pop-ups on the right side of the screen where you scroll. Not good at all. Hopefully the ads will go back to what they were.
Those are not from this site. It sounds like you might have some type of spyware that reads the page your on and provides relevant ads?!? I can assure you that those ads are not from this site. The home apge has "cooking" related books from Amazon offered but that is it...
Perhaps I can help. I've got a bar of "Ads by Google" that's coming through on the Opera web browsers that I'm using on BOTH of my computers. I took a screen shot after I hovered my mouse over the "Quick Links" at the top, clicked that, then captured the screen shot. Once I figure out how to post an image here, I'll show you what it looks like.
