Changes to the VeryBestBaking web site?

It looks like there have been changes made to this web site.  Is this true?  I went into my iPad this morning and all that I could find was the Mobile App, not the web site.  Yesterday I noticed that there are no more Featured Conversations at the bottom of the screens.  Is this in response to the ongoing problem of SPAM for advertising of junk locations?
The part that I do not like is not being able to get into the web site on my iPad, but being sent to the mobile app site.  How do I get to the other parts of the web site, like Community and Forums.  A computer is not always handy for me.  Could this be fixed?

Possible that with the IPad only the app is available.  Did you mark the post as a question for VBB?  Sometimes they answer even when it's in a regular post if it's marked as a question.  Good luck Jean.

I've been doing fne with my PC.  I have none of the new fangled things.  Sometimes I get "this page cannot be displayed" when I go to get a recipe from my recipe box or go to try to change my avatar.

Sometimes the VBB site is "gooey", runs very slowly, and then there is difficulty logging in.  Perhaps this will be addressed in the new year,
Everone have the merriest Christmas and happiest New Year ever.  May we all have an even better 2014.  God bless!!

I was doing fine on my iPad with getting in to the actual web site.  Now all that I get is the mobile.  I wish that they'd do like some other web sites that I've been to on my iPad and ask if I'd like to go to the full site.  Suggestion VBB?

I'm with Jean!!!  I was away for the weekend and when I got back today, my ipad was now in the "mobile" mode.  I get to the site through Safari, so I should get the regular site.  However. all I could get was the recipes.  GROWL!!!!

With it looking like no one is posting it could be that people are still learning to work with the changes now that there are no more Featured Conversations (go to Community now).  And, for those of us that use iPads and such, if all that we get is the Mobile App, we can't post, either.  I use my iPad when I'm on the train or bus on my way to work and home.  A few bad apples with their cheap belts and what-not spoiled it for the rest of us.

Thank you, I'm glad that it's not just me.  I hope that VBB listens and changes their mobile app to allow us to view the full site regardless of what device that we're using.

I was just checking my Brownie Points.  I see that I got the 100 points for going into the site today.  But, did they make another change and drop adding points for Replying to a Post?  I don't see anything for my last Post.  Or, will they show up later?

  unfortunately     
we can only guess,  like everything else on this site
but since we're not getting anything for the points    I rarely check mine
I never use f.b. or my I-phone             only my p.c.             so I haven't had the problem

when I come on, like now        it shows all the postings      as  many hrs old      but when I get into the forums
they are more recent          but when I go ot read   sometimes the comment listed last is missing
also on one comment I made  in whats for dinner           it never showed up at all

I tried going to this site again on my iPad and got the mobile app.  I saw at the bottom of the screen where it looked like I could click on a link to go to this web site and disable the mobile app.  But, it didn't seem to work.  Anybody else find this?  Did it work for you?  Or, VBB, is this something that you're working on?  I'd like to be able to access this site on something other than a computer, which isn't alway available

I see that Featured Conversations is back.  So, when will I be able to access the full web site on my iPad and not just the mobile app?

Unfortunately, different doesn't always mean better, the same with "New and Improved".

I have marked it as a question.  Unfortunately, the only answers that I've seen are from fellow people like you.  Nothing from the folks at VBB.  Sometimes I wonder if they pay attention to what people are saying on their site.

surprise
for several weeks now
when I sign on   all the listings are many hours old   like people are not visiting
 and when I go to the forum there are more current listings  and sometimes a listed comment wasn't there until the next time I visited

this morning  I found conversations and comments, including several spams     that are days old       that I haven't seen  even tho I have visited the site every day
