Where are Shared Recipes from the former site?

A number of months ago, right after Very Best Baking converted over to their new format, I contacted a representative.  I asked if the old feature of Shared Recipes was going to be continued.  They assured me it would be and stated that they 'were in the process of converting the shared recipes over' [quote/unquote].  Am I missing something? This new format isn't easy to navigate and I'm hoping I've just not been able to find them. However, something tells me, for whatever reason, Nestle' didn't carry through with continuing that feature. Sad.  Any feed back from anyone who use to frequent the old format?

 It seems there are some members on the new site now that were not on the old format.  

On the old format there were a catagory called Swapped Recipes.  I could go to Swapped Recipes and type in, let's say, Chicken Pot Pie, in the search box.  Immediately all the Chicken Pot Pie recipes that had been shared by fellow members would pop up.  I was looking for Cornbread Salad once.  I typed it in and 14 Cornbread Salad recipes came up.  All slightly different and put in order by star rating.  Once I had tried a recipe, I could go in and rate the recipe by giving it 1 - 5 stars and leave a comment.   This was greatly helpful. The member who had posted the recipe could also then go back in and post follow up comments. 

This feature was WONDERFUL!  If I was looking for something specific, which I also always am, I no longer went to my 100+ recipe books.  I came to Very Best Baking and used the Swap Recipes or their company recipe search.

Perhaps with feedback they'll put forth more effort to return this feature.

Some of us old timers have been asking about this, so far we just get promises (like the politicians).I for one was looking forward to the problem being solved in time for Christmas baking, but here it is Easter (and a late Easter at that) & still the bugs are not out of the site. I think most of us got tired of asking VBB about this, maybe we should start again.

i've been asking that question in many ways but no one seems to understand a simple question or the fact that on the old site i could just enter my name on the swapped recipes screen and pull up all of mine

if i put in bread pudding i get 99 pages of everything on the site-

i do not have the patience or time to even try to find what i want

also they tell me that all my recipes are now in my recipe box

but not    i only have 4
 not even my own swapped recipes i  painstakingly entered

but the worst part is the simple frustration of trying to find anything like we used to , even nestle's recipes

i searched for days for their Choco-Holic Cake recipe with no luck-------imagine my total shock when i tried to search for bread pudding and got all those results and this recipe was the 3rd one listed---------it felt like a JOKE

Nellie, I just typed in chocoholic cake in the search and it came up.  Maybe your computer was taking a nap.
