My Chow?

foodhypnosis Sep 25, 2008 11:15 PM

I can't find the old My Chow" at all. Am I not looking in the right places (looking everywhere!) Where can I find a link to the threads I've posted on?

    Here's the link to your page:


    The MYCHOW link is on the menu at the top, to the right of 'BLOG' and above the search box at the top right. Also, if you just click on your name in any post (such as this one), it will take you to your MYCHOW page.

      Thansk - clicking on my name gets me there. But, still not seeing "Blogs" or "my CHOW" above the search box on the top right of the page. All that's there is "hey foodhypnosis I Logout"

        In the Nav Bar, the options are chow / chowhound / recipes / restaurants & bars / stories / videos / blog / mychow

        Are you missing some of those items?

        Also, clicking on your name in 'hey foodhypnosis' will get you there, as well.

          Yeah, I figured out that I could click on the foodhypnosis there as well as in a thread.

          My Nav Bar shows chow / chowhound / recipes / restaurants & bars / stories / VII

          and ends there. Didn't know what VII meant - but hovering over it got me the info that it was videos.

            That's very strange -- is your window very small? Or does it have a horizontal scroll bar?

              Windows full size - no horiz scroll. If I adjust my font down (ctl - ) everything shrinks and the menu is unreadable altogether. (all the words on top of each other) Don't know if this means anything, but when I higlight the top of the page I can see what looks like a grey box on top of the right part of the menu...

              Just adjusted text size via page menu - was on medium, if I put it on small, the "grey box" is only covering the mychow button. If I put it on large, the "grey box" covers VIDEOS but BLOG and MYCHOW moves down under CHOW and CHOWHOUND...

              The thing is - if your page is set to "Larger text" size you won't see the very end of the right hand bars. I'm in the same boat. If you can change the page text size to Medium - you will then see the complete bar at the top.

              The Blog and My Chow part of the banner are cut off by the top portion of the right column. When I reduce the font size, they reappear.. So, to solve the small font size problem, I lose part of the banner.

                You are lucky to be able to adjust the font size in your browser. Another option is after going to your "My Chow" page, bookmark it. And then access it through your bookmark until this is fixed, if ever. This has been reported a number of times and yet is still seems to be news.

                I must be missing something. I don't have that Nav Bar at all. In the banner, at the top right, all I see is CindyJ (View Profile)/Logout. Under that there are tabs for "Discussion" and "Restaurants" and under that there are search boxes. There are no options for "Stories," "Videos" or "Blog." There is a box that says "Take me to CHOW." and other boxes tagged "Discussion," "Digest" and "Restaurants." Also, when I go to My Profile, I lose the "Choose a Board" options. What am I missing here?

                    This is an old thread. You can find your profile by clicking on 'view profile'.

                    Since last week, you should see the 'choose a board' options on that page. Are you not seeing them?

                      No... I'm not able to choose a board from my profile page.

                        Just followed your directions and cannot see a "choose a board" option.

                          Now that I've used the "Saved Boards" option, I can choose boards from my profile page.

                    Click on 'view profile' in the top right corner of the screen next to your username.

                    I don't see my "My Chow" either nor a place to click on "Save to My Chow" on a recipe. =(

                      And now I just saw "Save to my profile" on a recipe, but I don't know how to find the ones I saved.

                        Go to your profile page, click on the "lists" tab. You will see the recipes links. I wish they would change that to "Saved" or some such thing rather than "Lists".

                            Settings tab and then the account link below that. Then email the moderators immediately because you can get banned from the site for having more than one id. Tel them what happened and have them close your new id
