    Tuckie - the page numbering is only made when you display on your pc.

    Your last post was 252

    If you are showing 50 posts a page that is on page 6 (5x50=250, so 251-300 is on 6.

    If you show 20 you are indeed on page 13 (12x20=240 so 241-260 on 13)

    Incidentally I recommend viewing your own posts through another board, eg Archers, which still works properly.

    You will have to post something there - say that you had an erotic dream abour Kathy Perks or something.

    As Mrs Vee says, the old boards are still viewable.
    Healthy Eating is at www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb...
    TV and radio is at www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb...
    Veggie chat is at www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb...
    Beverages is at www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb...
    Cheers, Nige.

    QUESTIONS FOR HOST RAMONA

    smiley - erm Why is the word “Messageboard” on the charcoal background just above Food Q&A in the left navigation bar a hyperlink? Out of interest, I clicked it to see where it would go. I was led to a page with a graphic that linked me to …….. back to here!! That seems an exercise in futility, especially as navigation around the threads is so clunky now. It would be better for the link to be removed, and “Messageboard” be left just as a title.

    smiley - erm I remain unconvinced that “Food Q&A” is the best name for this message board. It is not intuitive that this is a message board with contributions from members. If I didn’t know better, I would think it was a site for beginner cooks to get their questions answered. Would an experienced cook even bother to click on the link? We are bleeding members and it would be lovely to attract some experienced cooks who would share their knowledge here. My suggestion is to amalgamate the old and new names and call it “Food Chat Q&A”.

    Dear HOST (Ramona)

    May I point out some errors in the recipes linked from the new series of Saturday Kitchen.

    1. Prawn salad
    ingredients state.....
    • 4 new potatoes
    • 1 corn on the cob, kernels removed
    then method tells you to cook then remove kernels..........
    Meanwhile, cook the corn on the cob in boiling water for 5-6 minutes, or until tender. Drain well and set aside to cool slightly. Once cool enough to handle, slice the kernels off the cob into a bowl.

    And in the monkfish recipe, the ingredients list is repeated twice (I looked in horror at the length of the ingredient list – it may well put many people off straight away).

    It may be helpful to publish a corrections and perhaps allow for proof reading in future

    Thanks.

    Have you any idea why my message (no. 2) in this thread is so garbled?

    i previewed it before posting, and it was set out fine, but seems to have condensed into a single block of text on posting.

    "Have you any idea why my message (no. 2) in this thread is so garbled?" 
    I was wondering that too, LeCreusetFiend. However, you are not the only one. I have seen some other similarly garbled posts from other members.

    So other posters don't have to click on the link, here is a bit of yours:

    “…you might as well drink the veg water instead!Dick was a brilliant guest - I've loved his eccentricity since his Scrapheap Challenge days (gosh - was that really 10 years ago &lt;yikes&gt<SMILEY TYPE='winkeye' H2G2='Smiley#winkeye'/>, and it was lovely to see someone so blatantly into their food.” 

    I see H2G2 was mentioned. Did you perhaps use smileys from the H2G2 list - that were not on the original Food Chat list? That is the only thing I can think of. Of course, it could be yet another bug on the website!

    I didn't use the smileys from h2g2 (no idea how to, or even what h2g2 is, really!!), but the old-fashiond ": - ) " and "< yikes >" without the spaces, obviously.

    The smileys appeared fine on the preview (inasmuch as these new smileys are any good), and the text was set out in paragraphs which actually made sense, believe it or not !

    Now it's garbled again. Go figure.

    It really is a most unfortunate look. I can hear them now: "a new crisp, clean look, exciting and modern". Alas it's the same look that the surgery ward in Essen had. Except that the staff there was cheerful and always ready to help.

    All the best Uschi, you know why. And have to agree with the sentiments yet again.


    Recipe Search:

    have given up using this site to find the BBC recipes I'm looking for, it's much quicker and more efficient to type into Google, saves going round in endless circles to no avail.


    Given all the trumpeting about the relaunch of BBC Food and its 'improvements' I would really have thought that at least all the links for programmes and recipes would be efficiently organised.
    Disappointed.

    Q: to Host: Why does "My discussions" show all posts I've made between the dates shown, yet I made none (bar one today) within the dates shown?

    The heading should say "Threads to which I(you?) have contributed" as the last contribution is the last contribution to the thread, whomsoever that might have been. I know you are reporting faults with "My discussions"; hopefully this misleading header will be adjusted too.

    ---

    I've just joined in again following the changes on the 16th - hope peeps all are well.

    Thank you to Paulthebread for this:

    "OK, then, all anyone has to do to display 200 posts on one page is to take Nige's links (which haven't been deleted, this is very strange!) and delete the N:

    (So NF2670469 becomes F2670469) and then end the line with ?show=200"

    Many thanks Paul - it makes Ctrl-f (Find function) so much quicker, especially when the message being replied to always seems to be #1, so can note message # and do a Ctrl-F to find it more easily (hopefully pro tem until bugs fixed).

    ---

    Re going back to top quickly, Ctrl-Home, or Ctrl-End for the end, as said.

    However, there is a vertical slider on the right side of most browsers that you can drag up or down with your mouse. If you write pencil marks (in inches or cms) on the frame of your monitor, you can see where a post sits on a page, making it easier to go back to. (Pencil marks can be cleaned off with an india rubber or Cif cream cleanser if marking the frame doesn't help you.)

    Question for host, apols if already raised.

    Is there any way new posts to a thread you've contributed to can be shown on My Discussions? The new posts indicator is inaccurate and it's impossible to tell if there are any new contributions.

    eg: New posts: -100064619 - but none actually there!
    Likewise: New posts: -100109332 - again, none actually there.
    I had to go to Gardening to work out where there were new posts or not!

    Why do you you find yourself back at post nr 1 when you click on

    That happened on the Ouch board when it first changed to this format, but I believe it was fixed some time later.

    You would have thought though, that as this isn't the first of the BBC message boards to change to this format, the techies should have known the possible problems beforehand and made sure that they didn't happen here.

    Obviously not though.

    We were promised a vibrant and exciting board to replace what we had before, sadly despite the efforts of a few long standing members to keep breathing life into what we have, the vibrancy and excitement is less of a work in progress and more of a distant promise (IMO anyway) 

    Our host thinks we have been given this - I cannot find the welcome to new members (?) written by our host - I can only remember that it said "welcome to the new sparkling food ????????"

    In this article it says that it is easier to find things!!! - plus other comments.

    Some of the decisions overall do seem strange LaC, but actually it seems as if ALL content on blog is related to tv programmes. I guess that means the BBC control starting tv cooking programme conversations.

    Looking back to a lot of the 'good old days' of the tv and other boards threads, I can quite see why.

    Not sure I like it, but I can see some sort of perverse logic.

    BYT - I THINK the job of the BBC is to encourage and support freedom of speech; not to plug its own shows?

    It's called "public service" and is an obligation paid for by forced subscriptions.

    Classic left hand/right hand smiley - laugh what do you expect?

    I just spit my drink across the keyboard, luckily it avoided the plate of food (Masterchef reference) that OH has just brought to the table.

    Actually what I most dislike about this board since my return is the unpleasant atmosphere and the tetchy nature of so many replies, much less understanding and pleasant than it was when I joined.

    I'd hoped all the promised 'improvements' would help, but the over-riding feel I get is of a prison governor watching your every move; couple this with the Grazia iintern naivety of the blog endings which beseech comments and it really hasn't helped matters It feels like the target audience is much less the experienced or aspirational cook and much more dumbed down.

    Spot on, Frillz.

    We need somehow to all club together again to regain a sense of community and shared interest, which seems to be lacking in these currently somewhat austere pages.

    I'm tempted to start opening more threads - I used to be a bit nervous about doing so, but I think it's the only way to get things moving again.

    Hey everyone,

    Hope you all had good long weekends?

    After a bit of thought, we have decided to relax the rules about discussing BBC Food programming for the time being. The point of our new Q&A boards is to encourage the caring, helping attitude so many of you have when you step in to offer advice to other foodie folk - so that is our main focus. If we feel the board is becoming too much of a discussion about TV, we may have to reign it in again.

    Bringing back the temporary Christmas board later in the year sounds like a good idea to me. Let's do it.

    Thanks for letting me know about the errors on the Saturday Kitchen recipes - we’re looking at this now and should be fixed ASAP. I’m going to keep chasing the developers about all the DNA bugs flagged up here.

    Frillz - I’ll pass your suggestions about improving the recipe list of particular programmes onto our site designer.

    Somebody asked why the word 'messageboard' is still showing in the left hand navigation. The new layout for DNA sites is such that all topics (that's what a single board is called I’ve been told) should sit under one 'parent' messageboard, which is automatically pulled into the left hand side. I agree that It looks pretty silly when there’s just one topic and that’s why we’re sending people straight to the Food Q&A topic whenever possible (such as from the Food homepage). When we have the Christmas topic set up later in the year, there would be a link to that topic from the messageboard page.

    I’m also going to ‘unsticky’ this thread now as the new set up has been going for a couple of weeks now and it’ll be more useful to allow more timely threads to show up first on the main page. Do continue to ask any questions on this thread please - then the thread will still come out top of the list anyway.

    Thanks,
    Ramona

    Thanks Ramona, I'm sure it's not just me who goes round in circles from link to link and gives up on the recipe search.

    Thanks also for reconsidering your stance on Food TV programmes.
    Might I make a further suggestion?
    Most regulars here who enjoy discussing the content of such programmes are now well aware of how the threads should concentrate and focus in the direction you wish - could you perhaps give some leeway as newcomers join the board while the policy is also explained to them.

    As seen on recent shortlived Masterchef threads started by newcomers, posters were put off and not seen again, whereas a more guiding hand than a censorious one might encourage them to stay (I think this is true for established posters also)
    Just a thought.

    On a lot of threads (not yours) when on pages other than the first there does not seem to be any way to go back to page 1. No page numbers at the top of the page for you to click on - or have I missed them?.

    <quote>On a lot of threads...[snip...] when on pages other than the first there does not seem to be any way to go back to page 1. No page numbers at the top of the page for you to click on - or have I missed them?.

    With most threads now being so short, and more than the previous 20 posts to a page, there usually isn't a page 1 to return to.

    "Somebody asked why the word 'messageboard' is still showing in the left hand navigation. The new layout for DNA sites is such that all topics (that's what a single board is called I’ve been told) should sit under one 'parent' messageboard, which is automatically pulled into the left hand side." 

    Ramona, maybe you are referring to my comment/question because I cannot see any others that refer to that specific topic. However, that is not what I asked. I asked not why the word is still showing in the left hand navigation bar but why the word "messageboard" is a CLICKABLE LINK - leading back to this same page.Try it for yourself! Click on the word "messageboard". I cannot see how the addition of another board later, e.g. Christmas board, is going to make that silly little routine seem any more sensible.

    Did you ask the developers my actual question?

    This is very good news.

    I was itching to post about Simon Hopkinson's new show and others were equally enthusiastic to discuss it and it did seem most bizarre that such a positive discussion was censored by the very broadcaster.

    Hugely disappointed it has been rather painful to get to this point but delighted at the outcome. Take your solace where you can, as they say.

    In reply to Denadar:

    And on the top of the first page it says:

    First - « Previous - 1 2 3 4 etc - Next » - Last

    As there are only two posts on the second page, you just have to click your Back button to return to page 1.

    After a bit of thought, we have decided to relax the rules about discussing BBC Food programming for the time being.


    Ermmmm do I take that to mean "I was wrong"? Slapped wrist from above?

    Look sorry Ramona but relax and chill a bit to see what happens rather than react to what may happen but hasn't yet.

    There again you state programming not programmes.

    Many thanks for your reply. I think that is a sensible decision. The TV board was never very fast moving - unless something 'juicy' had happened, or the was a competion type prog on and folks would follow it together.

    I must say I would have thought such activity would be good publicity for the BBC ( let's not talk about other broadcasters being available). Often the BBC progs were the most interesting and got the most comment ... so good work!

    And a question - can the happy smiley be re done? It is a rather brutish form of happiness. isn't it? Apols to the designer!

    "And a question - can the happy smiley be re done? It is a rather brutish form of happiness. isn't it?" 
    I agree! It is difficult to recognise it as laughter; it looks more like a tummyache to me. I know the new one has been on the h2g2 boards, but please could we have the old laugh smiley back? Or get someone to redesign it completely.

    "" Ermmmm do I take that to mean "I was wrong"? Slapped wrist from above? ""  
    Or perhaps it just means that after consideration, Ramona has had a change of mind - perhaps after reading comments from posters - and has the authority and flexibility to implement that change.

    The leap to conclude that a change of view is only likely to be as a result of "words from above" may tell us more about the poster's working life and style rather than anyone else's.
