I can't find it either. I don't think it was part of the subscription issue, but I sure can't find it regardless!

This whole thing is driving me crazy!! This question was posted before. I found out how to get them. Now, I can't find the original post and can't remember how I found them!! If I ever find them again I will post!!! It had something to do about going to your profile, but I have gone there and hit everything and no favorites. The Delphi

forum is looking real good!! They even have a Cooking
Discussion for us!
Found the post! "Go to home page, log in again then you will see favorites on the top of the screen." Well, so much for that. It does not work anymore....can't log in!! Heaven help us!!
OK, back again! If you put FC in search click on it log in and then on the top right you will see welcome with your name and also favorites there! A heck of a roundabout way to get there. First they make you log in every time to go into FC now you can't log in!! If anyone knows an easier way, please let me know!!

After talking with Dagwood, I have started a cooking forum on Delphi (very similar to the format we just lost.) I am not suggesting a mass migration, but offering an alternative so that perhaps those who loved the old format and find the new one unworkable can still meet with old friends. I still harbor hope that someday Taunton will listen to us, or at least treat us like adults.

Wouldn't let me edit again, (post #68131, reply #5 of 16)

Wouldn't let me edit again, but I'm afraid it's for paid subscribers only. I went to recipes, put in one that I was looking for and I had to log in, and the favorites were there. So, I guess you have to pay to get your favorites!

I'm sorry, but I don't (post #68131, reply #6 of 16)

I'm sorry, but I don't follow. Are you talking about your favorites on FC's regular site (not the forum)? There's no for-pay favorites that I know of. If something hasn't carried over from the old forum, I can bug it in our system so a developer can resolve.

Thanks,
Robyn

I haven't looked for mine (post #68131, reply #8 of 16)

I haven't looked for mine yet, but I let my subscription lapse, and I still had favorites that were available to me that were on the site without a subscription. Has THAT been taken away?

AND reporting back, no my favorites is still there with my choices from the past. If I added some while I had a subscription, I would assume they are not available. Robyn, you might make a note of this, since your information seems to be wrong. "Favorites" was established long before the paid subscription. It would make no sense for it to be for subscribers only. ;o)

Gretchen, "Favorites" is not (post #68131, reply #14 of 16)

Gretchen,
"Favorites" is not a benefit of a paid subscription to the site. That's what I said/meant above. Everyone can mark an article or recipe or any piece of content on the site as a favorite and add it to the list. The forum switch doesn't change anything about your favorites. When I'm on the regular FC site (non-forum), a link to my favorites appears at top of the screen. Now, if I understand MEAN's request, he wants access to his favorites folder while he's in CooksTalk (makes sense to me) and I have to look into whether or not I can make that happen.

The link to favorites was there before. I think it got dropped on the changeover.

Are you implying that I can access any FC recipe going back to the beginning of time WITHOUT a paid subscription and put it in my favorites? Why do I have a paid subscription then?

Only SOME articles and recipes are available without the paid subscription. To access all (all that are online) you need the paid subscription. At least, that's my understanding.

Yes the regular favorites (post #68131, reply #10 of 16)

Yes the regular favorites that we have always been able to access. I am a paid subscriber (at the moment that is), so I am able to access them by doing the above.

Before in the old forum you could clck on favorites for the regular FC site, just like you can click on recipes, ingredients etc. Check FC site and you will see in the upper right corner where it says welcome "name" ,my page, favorites, logout etc. All of this used to be on CT as well. During the transition it got left out.
