Choose/Saved Boards option no longer appearing on my Profile page

Breadcrumbs Jun 15, 2012 03:45 AM

The box at the top of the page is no longer appearing on my Profile page.

It still appears if I'm in a Thread or Board view.

I have this issue on my Mac book & Ipad (Safari browser).

    Hi Breadcrumbs,

    We did remove the Choose/Saved Boards option from your profile page with this last release (though I'm noticing that if you click "settings" in profile, it appears to come back for now.) We did, however, add into the profile itself a saved boards section, again, under "settings."

    We are planning to remove the Choose/Saved Boards module across the site in the next two weeks, so this module is going to go away site-wide soon. In terms of ipad menu trouble, I'm not seeing it on my local ipad environment. Can you explain what is going wrong exactly?

    Thanks, Meredith

        The module is being removed, not the functionality. You'll be able to access your Saved Boards via the dropdown, as described here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/854055

        The module takes up a lot of space (and only appears on certain pages), while the dropdown functionality will allow you access the boards from anywhere on the site.

        Thanks mudaba. With my ipad (2) if I hover over the words "CHOWHOUND DISCUSSIONS" with my cursor, nothing happens. Ditto if I click on the words. I just can't get to the drop-down.

          Thanks Breadcrumbs.

          We're seeing the problem you're describing and will be investigating a solution for the iPad.

        Ditto for me. MacBook Pro, Firefox, Chrome.

        I see that CH has rearranged the page so that a drop-down menu appears when I hover my cursor over the "Chowhound Discussions" item in the bar at the top of the page (ditto for the other choices there) wherein the drop-down menu contains my saved boards** on one side and "all boards" plus a selection on the other side. Still, I think I prefer the previous arrangement of the tabbed "all boards" or "saved boards" right there on my profile page.

        ** BTW, Engineering, on both FF and Chrome the table of my saved boards has the last selection cutoff halfway horizontally. Changing font size/view does not help.

          I saw that drop down menu too huiray and while it works on my Mac book, it doesn't on my ipad.
