Where are the Digests hiding?

meatn3 Feb 23, 2012 06:20 PM

This morning I was able to click on "What's New" and digests appeared in the drop down menu.

Now they are gone...I did a quick look/see but no sign of them.

Please don't tell me they have been eliminated!

    Thwy aeem to be under restaurant reviews though that includes home cooking and the general digest.

    They now have regions and ny has been split into two regions.

      Thank you!

      It would never have occurred to me to look there for home cooking or general digests.

      I keep a bookmark for the main page: http://www.chow.com/digest/ and also for pages of the specific editions I want to keep up with (reached via the links on the right under browse regions).

        We are experimenting with the names of our dropdowns to create clarity, and "restaurant reviews" probably didn't do that for Digest. We are going to change that name to "Hot on Chowhound" soon, and hope that will help.

        Thanks, Meredith of CHOW

          Well, hot posts (something different from the Digest) was certainly an eye catching link.

          Since Chow is being so receptive lately to suggestions, what about putting Unread Posts (hot posts) at the bottom of the latest Chowhound posts page, calling the link "more posts'

          Yelp does that with "more new reviews near you" IIRC, in the past they didn't have that link and it was really annoying only have the three most recent reviews flash by.

          From what I've observed, people use that latest posts page a lot and probably, as I did, would get a lot more out of the site. i hope that unread posts is not on some future kill list. Like the Digest, given a little more attention, it would get used a lot.

          i realize that link would only show up if someone was logged in ...in that case the link could be a teaser like 'sign up for more hot posts'

            "Hot on Chowhound" - made the digests very easy to find!
            Thanks!

              So glad it helped! Hope it helps bring more people to the Digests, too!

            There's no drop down on iPhone view and I'm not finding a way to navigate to Digests.

              The only way I've been able to get to the Digest on mobile view is by going through Google or just typing in the URL. That and the fact that one can't navigate to saved boards from one's profile page are my gripes when accessing via my iPod touch.

                I pointed out the problem to "jane" on January 16 and received no reply.

                It is curious that the Digest articles are not part of "The Latest" "Top Stories" feed.
