I just do not like the new format that AR has, it kinda pisses me off- I want to check and review a recipe I have made before for my changes (if any) and can not just check on review anymore because it does not come up - I have to search through my reviewed- dang I have reviewed many recipes over the years and it a darn hassle to go back through them.

If you can find the recipe in your recipe box, click on the stars under "my rating" and your review will come up. Hope this helps.

They will just have to fix this problem. Give them a little time. I agree with you totally. We should at least be able to search our reviews.

Email them; the more people that email them about that the sooner they will fix it :)

I am wondering where the heck some of my photos went! I posted 4 new ones late Friday, and they aren't attached to my reviews! It is no big loss, since my pics are never all that great, just odd...

I loved Patches hint about checking on your reviews as I often want to edit mine as I find more hints I want to share. What I miss about the old format is the capability to check out a whole page of photo's at once. As it is now, you can only check one at a time, unless I'm missing something here.
Oct. 8, 2012 4:03 am I posted this late last week. It might help until they get it fixed.

marysunshine1 - the allrecipes blog has some good directions on using the new page including how to do that.

I totally agree! I may get used to the new format in time, but I totally am pissed I can't see my reviews. That's how I know I've made the recipe and what my suggestions were for lat time. And hte menu planner popup is also totally pissing me off. I want it off--it gets in my way and totally takes every page so much longer with it.

I am STILL getting that annoying menu planner on the bottom of my screen and STILL can't see all the pics on a recipe. I tried to look at the pics of today's video recipe, Iced Pumpkin Cookies, and only get the slide show that you have to advance by clicking the button. With 182 pics, I'm not going to sit here all morning doing that!!!! Frankly, I don't think they care what we think.

sugarnspice, just curious. After you click to open the first photo, do you get an error message when you click on "182" above it or just nothing.
Oct. 8, 2012 6:08 am
Nope, I get the slide show that has the side arrows that I have to click to go forward or backward to see pics, with no option to click to see ALL of them. VERY annoying!

youclick the number above the phot in the slideshow window. It's not obvious but if you hover your mouse over it there should be and underline that indicates it's a link. Not too intuitive but I broke down and read the AR blog which seems pretty helpful for once.

by number I mean 1 of 182.....the 182 takes you to the pages.

THANK YOU, LINDA! Could it be any more confusing?? I still had to have hubby help me with it because he is a techno genius and he said, and I quote, "it's a goat f..." (I think that's a technical term).

I am very disappointed with the new format. Really appreciated the list of similar recipes to the right. Finding it inconvenient browsing the new site. AR has been my home page for years, but looking for a change. Very sad.

They are in a new location below and include photos. I actually like the addition of those photos.
