A Faster Chowhound: Pagination for Longer Threads

To clarify what users are saying, the See All button implies that we are not seeing all posts.

I dare not use the page buttons at the bottom for fear I will have to reset my profile preferences. Again.

A Faster Chowhound: Pagination for Longer Threads

The "transparency" alluded to in that announcement has been missing for months. Instead we get to read treatises that read like political speeches: promising change for the better while slipping in a tax on the people for no real reason.

site forgetting "read" posts

Oh no. I rely on Google for my Chowhound searches.

There is a stupid workaround. Append ?page=all to the URL and the page will render as it should.

Ok, I've gone meta - with an Avatar avatar.

The trick is to find the fix BEFORE you open any huge threads.

Why is there a "See All" button with page numbers after I've fixed my profile to prevent the pagination? Am I not seeing all? This makes a confusing change even more confusing.

Because somebody thought it'd be clever? Actually, I think it's so the responses can remain in the thread instead of having to prune an entire subthread. Still and all - there has to be a better way.

And while I'm griping... where the heck are the larger hover avatars? I really want to get back to my old avatar, which is too detailed for the tiny avatars. Bring back the hover! Hover! Hover!

Thanks. I did read and apply the fix I never should have needed to employ. Why on earth we have to "disable" pagination when it should have been the other way 'round... We should have been able to "enable" pagination. Effin' click mongering at its lowest.

A Faster Chowhound: Pagination for Longer Threads

This blows. Yeah, I thought about being constructive but I've had it. Now I can no longer just see new posts. No, now I have to wade through pages of stuff I've read? No. Just, no.

Thank you so much! I hope the 40 mile round trip is worth it.

Cheese Board

Some topics on the 1 day only banana board grandly flouted our argumentative natures, while others mocked our foibles with shameless abandon and called us, Chowhound brethren to post our silliness. Twas grand, indeed.

Cheese Board

To be fair, we do keep asking for new boards. Remember the Banana Board announcement? http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/896539

Ah, days of Site Talk glory past, when everything wasn't so damn serious or taken so damn seriously.

Jewish Cooking not just Kosher

Yes but hill food also suggested posting recipes on local/regional boards, which is frowned upon. Then greygarious pointed that out but also suggested posting recipes to Recipes, which mere mortals can not do. Only Chow staff have that privilege.

"Geo boards are for sharing restaurants and places to visit, yes?" Yes

"But special categories like V or V, Special Diets, Kosher, Cheese, a few others share general information specific to the board type, very specific information on the enjoyment of board type AND recipes as it applies to the discussion in play. Yes or no?" Yes

We've all been confused by the ever-changing Chowhound. You are not alone!

That has not made it to my local (St. Louis Park, MN) store. Sad.

If anyone spots it at other area Trader Joe's, please post here to let me know. Thanks!

Jewish Cooking not just Kosher

If only they did belong on Recipes. Users can't add recipes, which we've been grumbling about for years.

Please stick to Home Cooking, Kosher or Vegetarian/Vegan boards when posting recipes.

And 'round we go.

We don't eat meat, they don't eat fish.....

Seems I have been living under a panade-free rock all my days. How have I never heard about panades? You have just blown open a whole new world of exploration for good wintry food. I am so excited. Bread and Onion Panade with Spicy Greens. http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/20...

Then your cabbage panade. Then... the world is my panade covered oyster. Thank you.

The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone vs How to Cook Everything Vegetarian

It's akin to a vegetarian James Beard cookbook. A base recipe with options. Oh, look! James Beard is rolling over in his grave.

The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone vs How to Cook Everything Vegetarian

I use Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone the same way. It's inspirational but not as practical for every day meals.

Twin Citians Drink More

Taxes play a part. And though it's been a while since we were a mostly Scandinavian culture, that piece has remained. Forbes says Minneapolis is the #1 healthiest city, so - I'll drink to that!

Top Chef Boston – Ep. #8 – 12/10/14 (spoilers)

Agree with all you say. Runway has a couple villains I love to hate, and a couple sweeties I simply love.

As for Top Chef, as of this episode I am plugged back in and enjoying it immensely. For a few seasons I admit I've been catching up on my magazines while this airs. I kept an ear out for conflict or if one of the judges really liked something. Mostly I'd think, "Why are they doing this? It has nothing to do with the location?" The flip side being the Pee Wee/Alamo challenge. I love Pee Wee, I love biking, but this was my breaking point.

All's forgiven, Top Chef Overlords. I will slavishly pay attention. Just don't Pee Wee all over us again, and we'll be good.

From NPR

It is a big deal that a fast food restaurant is paying a living wage and expects to see a profit at the end of the year. I hope the model remains workable as they expand. Way to go, Moo Cluck Moo!

I think I should be turned on a spit and basted if need be. Free range vegetarian fed!

Kindred spirits!

Except, ::shuffling feet in imaginary snow while casting a downward, sheepish gaze:: I have to stand by any Nordic Ware. They are not only local, they are part of our past and burgeoning present baking culture, rendering them unassailable as far as I'm concerned.

Starbucks "skinny": when did this happen? I'm poisoned!!

You should probably stick to ordering plain black coffee then.

TJs peanuts (except blistered) have been a nay for me lately. Bums me out. Half the time they're rancid. The rest of the time they are under-roasted.

That came off as a producer exerting pressure on an editor to make a shitty finale smell like a rose. It was the only gaffe in the episode.

I liked that somebody actually bought jackfruit. And I loved the way Gregory not only used it, but wanted to engage TC fans through display of said fruit.

I liked the chefs who appreciated the fans.

I also liked seeing fans do the silly stuff I would do in a Top Chef kitchen.
