I'm currently logged in as who I'am, crt. I'm looking at 'Hey, crt ! Logout'. I just submitted my recipe of The Portobello Blues. However it was published under someone elses log on, a 'dshanley'. What in the heck is going on, CH Techies???

    That's very strange! I was able to confirm the problem, by posting a test recipe of my own, which came up under someone else's name.

    I'll raise an issue to get that fixed, in the interim, you have two options. We can delete your recipe now, and you can repost it when it's fixed, or we can leave it for now, and then remove it after you're able to repost. Just let us know what you prefer.

      Please delete now. I'll try reposting after the problem is fixed. You will let us know when it's fixed??

        I will let you know, yes. I have deleted your previous recipe submission. As with everything right now, it'll probably take more time because of the holiday season.

          This problem seems to be fixed -- I was able to post a test recipe under my own name this morning.

            Um, I just had the same problem -- posted a recipe for "Coffee Cinnamon Chili Liqueur," and it is listed as being by someone called "num num."

              Yeah, we've got Engineering looking at it again, since whatever fixed it last week seems to have regressed. We can remove your recipe and send you a copy when it's possible to repost if you like.

              A question I'm wondering about, for those who are experiencing this issue, and which I didn't check when I was testing it. Does the recipe appear on your my chow Favorites page?

                If you send it to me, does that mean there's an easy way for me to re-post it without typing the whole thing in again? If so, yes, please do delete it.

                I checked my "favorites," and the recipe doesn't appear.

                  You'll still have to copy and paste it back into the individual boxes, unfortunately, but you shouldn't have to type the whole thing again.

                  We released some fixes for this tonight. Please keep updating the thread if the problem continues.
