    I would be fine with putting the linked cookbooks under my chef picture but I can't even find the chef picture section on the edit page. What in tarnation am I doing wrong? I did get excited because I went ahead and moved recipes of one cookbook into a new cookbook on "My Cookbooks" section and then named it the name of the Chef. I'm hoping I did that right. We'll see. I'm driving my husband nuts - been playing on this silly computer all blasted afternoon & it's been great!!! Thanks for helping me out! Hugs, Sharon


    On my page, my chef pictures are in the about me section (on yours go to my stuff, scroll down to *about me* on right hand side, click on *edit this*, you'll have to sign in again, and then you can make edits.)

    If it's still not working, send an message to Kathy or post in Customer Service ~ she'll help you!

    In the meantime, I'll keep checking here icon_smile.gif icon_smile.gif

    Ok - next question. When I looked at your "about me" page, I looked at one of your cookbooks. I"m going to paste it here so I don't mess up. It read - "Cheap and Easy Cooking (88 recipes)
    I put all the linked recipes from a thread called "Cheap and easy..." from November 2004"
    Here's my question: Did you "save" each individual recipe from the Cheap and Easy cookbook or were you able to "link" the whole thing into a cookbook in your "My Cookbooks" section?" Does that question make sense? I still just don't understand the "link" thing. I'm still going to try to just make new cookbooks with copying each recipe. I'm content with that as long as it is ok to do it so it doesn't look like I am trying to take credit for someone else's cookbook.

    Hope you had a great Christmas. I'm getting over the flu (had it all day on Christmas Day!) so I'm just going to take it easy today and play around in the Recipezaar site. Will check in later. Hugs, Sharon

    Oh my gosh ~ I hope you feel better soon!!!

    Yes, when I made the Cheap and Easy cookbook, I saved each individual recipe icon_eek.gif from the thread. What I do to save a little time, is save them to my main cookbook (they automatically go there if you click save) and then I go into my main cookbook, check the boxes next to the recipes and click the move to button on the bottom of the page and move them to whichever cokbook I want. I hope that makes sense!

    WOW! Your expanation made perfect sense! Thanks! I am feeling better but still a little weak so I'm not getting out of this recliner (except to hit the bathroom!)
    Hey, got another question (will they ever end?! probably not!) I want to copy some recipes that are from the newspaper into my recipezaar cookbooks. Problem is that I haven't made them and they don't indicate the length of time for preparation. I actually typed the entire recipe for Grilled Giant Porked Chops (very long recipe) but then it wouldn't save it because I didn't put in preparation time. How can I put that time in if I haven't made it and don't have a clue at how long it would take to make? What can I do? I hate the thought of writing all of the recipes down and then having to redo them into the cookbooks. Let me know your suggestion (see, I know you'll have an answer for me!)

    Thanks again for all of your help. You have been absolutely wonderful!! Hugs, Sharon

    I would guess at the time ~ look at other recipes with the same sort of prep and see what they say. Then, in your description at the top, put that prep and/or cook time is a guess icon_smile.gif

    I'm glad you are feeling a little better ~ what a rotten time to be sick!

    Any more questions, ask away! I think DH is dragging me to the movies so I might not answer too quickly icon_smile.gif

    Thanks again!! I will try that for preparation time and put in that it is a guesstimate.

    Hope you enjoy the movies!! I'm hoping to drag DH out in a day or two (once we are back to healthy). What did you go see? Any good?

    Talk to you later. Have a great evening. Hugs, Sharon

    I saw in Customer Service that someone was having the same problem so I would suggest you either start a thread to the attention of Kathy in the Customer Service forum or send her a note via the contact us link icon_smile.gif

    Adding a picture to your cookbook

    icon_arrow.gif Download a picture to your computer
    icon_arrow.gif Upload it to photobucket or another image hosting site
    icon_arrow.gif Copy the [img] link on photobucket (or other site)
    icon_arrow.gif In the edit area for the specific cookbook, paste the [img] link
    icon_arrow.gif save changes


    I'm confused (nothing new, lol)...where exactly do we paste the link...at the beginning of the description? I've tried doing it with and without the [img][/img] around the link but only get the link itself to show up, not the picture. I'm doing something wrong but can't figure out what. icon_rolleyes.gif icon_wink.gif

    I paste mine at the beginning ~ before any text ~ but that is just personal preference. You can put it anywhere in there.

    I copied what my img link looks like in one of my cookbooks so you can see it.

    < img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v227/nancycg56/2005_0615KoolKona0001.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com" >

    Of course, if I wanted to post the picture, I would get rid of the spaces after the < and before the >.

    I hope this makes some sense icon_smile.gif

    Yay, it worked! icon_biggrin.gif I was using the phpBB code [img] like we do in posts; guess I needed this html code instead. Now if I can just remember <img src....... lol!
