    Is there any way to search reviews by ingredient or member, as we can with the other search fields?
    I can get ingredient if it is in the title, but nothing beyond that.
    I could edit a url if you have a workable shortcut.
    If not, can a change to the search field be implemented?
    I *could* add all my reviews one-at-a-time to a cookbook and proceed that way, but I have over a hundred pages of reviews and that would be such a drag and take hours just to put together. But if there was a check-box to the left of the recipes where I could select multiple recipes to add to a cookbook, that would make things easier, if not perfect.

    It is just very awkward when trying to remember "what was that recipe I made with olive oil in it and ham" or "what was that recipe of Kittencals that I liked" etc., and being forced to search each review one by one.
    Thanks for any help and assistance. I do appreciate it! icon_smile.gif

    Have you tried using the recipe sifter within your reviews?

    The sifter does not work on our own reviews!

    The recipe sifter does not work for reviews, Mary - it's something the hosts mentioned for the wish list. It would be great it did work.

    It would also be good if Search This Set were more robust. When I go to All My Cookbooks and enter a search term, it searches the titles and also the intros, which sometimes helps you find something (not ingredients, though). When you use search this set in reviews, as Sue mentioned, it only searches the titles of the recipes.

    I'm not sure why these were set up differently in different parts - one would think that the same search paratmeters would work in all areas. Recipe Sifter works with My recipes (but not with All My Cookbooks).

    Yeah, that's right. It works within one's recipes not reviews. I agree, it should function that way across the site. Definite request for future enhancement.

    Thank you as this is something that drives me crazy.
    I want to find a recipe I made before and with 750+ reviews it's a pain to
    search without being able to sift.
