As you might have noticed, we've made some exciting changes to foodpickle (or as its devotees are calling it, The Magic Pickle). Here's the lowdown -- let us know what you think and if you have any tips for how to make these upgrades even better. Thanks and, as always, happy pickling!
Tags are the new categories
The old category distinctions weren't terribly useful, so we did away with them. Now you can add up to 5 relevant tags -- like, say "baking soda" -- then you can click on that tag to see any question that's ever been asked (and tagged) about baking soda.
And any food52 member can add or edit the tags on any question (so go on, get tagging!).
2-part questions are easier to read
When asking a question on food52, you'll now see a title field -- to (briefly) get to the meat of the question -- plus a field where you can fill in any background info, descriptions, rants. This should make questions easier to digest and answer quickly, both on Twitter and on food52, especially now that they're showing up on the homepage (!).
Tap foodpickle directly from any step of a recipe
On food52's recipe pages (see below), you'll now see that you can tap into foodpickle more directly -- either with general questions (at the bottom of the recipe) or about any specific step (you'll see the link as you mouse over each one).
And don't worry -- any time a question is asked about a recipe, we send an email to the author so they have a chance to weigh in.
Enjoy! - from the people behind The Magic Pickle.
