GardenWeb needs your feedback!

Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed, we've been sprucing up the site a bit. Among other things, we've added new ways to upload photos and email notifications of post replies. We are still cleaning out cobwebs and weeding some areas of the site, but we are also working on some bigger projects like a better search engine (yay!) and a mobile app. We'd also like to get some feedback from you. What enhancements or additions would you like to see? What do you love? What do you hate? Think big and small!

We can't promise the moon, but please know that we will read and consider every one of your ideas and suggestions. We appreciate your loyalty and dedication to our site and we know how important your community is to you. Help us make it even better!

Please use this post to offer your feedback. But, as always, you are welcome to contact me directly by clicking on my profile page.

Best regards,

Tamara Amey

A good search engine would be wonderful. I sometimes save a post with its title and darned if I can locate it with the present search engine.

I thought an edit feature would be nice but have changed my mind after reading some well thought out posts on the cooking forum. People not catching their errors in the preview screen...............hmmm. Ditto for spelling errors.

If possible I'd like to see a size restriction on embedded photos. 150kb accomodates much detail but too often 250kb plus are being posted. Judicious photo editing brings them nearer 100kb without sacrificing detail (exception being landscapes). Maybe a forum for Jumbo Pics!

� 2 cups does present a problem (symbols before measurements or for apostrophes, etc). I've wondered if those people are using a newer word processing program. Maybe a note at the top section on what is compatable/not compatible?

Love the layout!!! The most usable and understandable forum format on the web! Simple is best. I regularly read about 6 forums including some on That Home Site. Thank you for asking for input.

I would love a mobile version!

Hi everyone!

You asked and we listened. Today we are very excited to be debuting our newest feature -- post editing! To use this feature, go back to the post you wish to correct and you'll find the link under the 'My Clippings' links on the right side of the page.

I want to give a special shout out to all the testers who tried to break the editing tool. ;) Your feedback was insightful and invaluable. Thank you!

You may have also noticed that we adjusted the login cookie awhile back so that you should not have to login repeatedly.

Stay tuned -- we have more cool things in the works!

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,

I'm having a problem with preview. After my initial preview I make a change and try to preview again --- doesn't happen --- my original preview just sits there.

I end up copying my changed message, use the back button, copy in the changed message, do preview, then submit.

RE: GardenWeb needs your feedback!

Love the easy option to upload a pic. I would not worry about the photo size.

Also spelling errors, who the f--- cares! Lighten up peoeple!
