I appreciate you trying to improve the site, but that would be like changing the tried & true tollhouse cookie recipe! I am having a difficult time navigating the site, and cannot find my old favo

I miss the old VBB site navigation however I do like the new look of the revised site.  I am still having trouble finding my way but am working on learning!

Since I love what a computer adds to my life I do not feel like the new website has added anything new. Even though you have a space to stay signed in, it does not work. You have blocked any efforts to save the log in and password. Finding recipes is a bit of a chore. I liked the old site because you had recipes for the taking right on the first page. Like others I can't find the swapped recipes, which I used and I still am not sure how you can accumulate points now.
If I am looking for something new, this site has become too much work. Sorry

I have to admit, that like most people, I am not happy with the changes to the web site.  It sure does look pretty but it is confusing, my points are incorrect, I'm not sure if my recipe box is intact, and it is extremely difficult to navigate around the site.  Truthfully, I'd like the old site back.

I don't like the new site at all.  I'm trying to find a recipe to email to a friend and I have no idea where to look.  I typed in the name and nothing even close came up.  It was a swapped recipe.  How do I find it quickly?  If I continue to be frustrated and waste a lot of time trying to find recipes, I, too, will leave the site and find another one.

It is very colorful!  As with anything new, we should expect a few problems.  I'm sure they will fix or improve them.

I don't like it either.  I can't find anything!!!!!!!  I log in and I answer a few of the discussion questions and log out.  I don't have a whole lot of time to waste trying to go round and round and getting no where.  It is very very frustrating!!!!!!!

I wish there were a way to see which forum has a new post .... It takes forever to click on each one to check.

And I always click on "Font size" trying to make this stuff bigger.  If we typed any smaller it, for me, would be invisible!!

Looking forward to that Amins, thanks. Will be great to have our old sites up and running and to be able to see a total of our points like in the old site.

You asked what we are looking for. I am looking for the articles on working with chocolate. Melting, seizing, etc. Where are they? No, they are not in resources unless they are hid behind something.
