It is worth noting that we are currently in phase 1 of this significant update, and phase 2 is set to commence before the end of May. Invariably, when redesigning a large website, relocating thousands of recipes and adding hundreds more, gremlins tend to rear their little heads.
Thanks to you our readers, we have picked up on a few minor technical issues that seem to be occurring.
Recipe (or just its picture) cannot be found, or a link doesn’t work: This more than likely means it has fallen through the cracks during the transition. Please send us an email if you come across any instances like these, and we’ll immediately find it and upload it to the site.
Trouble logging in, or receiving email with password reset: A few of our readers reported having this problem. Our system administrator has assured us that the fault has subsequently been corrected, but if you do experience this please email us and we’ll send you a new password directly.
My Recipe Book: Those of you who have been collecting ideas via My Recipe Book will probably have noticed the absence of this function on the new site. Rest assured, this is only temporary. Once phase 2 commences at the end of May, we will reintroduce My Recipe Book, and all your previously saved recipes will still be there. Please bear with us in the meantime, and perhaps bookmark your favourite recipes in your browser in the interim.
Searching: We’ve had reports of readers struggling to find specific recipes using the “search” function. Advanced search options will also be unveiled in phase 2, making searches must more specific. For now, if you’re struggling to find a favourite recipe, try searching for the main ingredient in the recipe (“beef”) rather than the complete name of the recipe (“Asian beef shortribs”). It’s a little more cumbersome, but it will be worth the wait.
We thank you for your patience and your feedback in helping us make taste.co.za your ultimate cooking resource.
