hi fellow diyers and in particular nick,
i’m sure there’s a better place for this post, but a search for diy.soylent only delivered this thread (at least, right on topic anyway). i say i’m sure there is a better place though, because this thread only has ten posts at time of writing, and i’m sure i can’t be the only one who wants to discuss diy.soylent.me in general. and, as far as i can tell there is nowhere on that sub-domain to do so. perhaps there should/could be, or perhaps somebody might enlighten me regarding this matter, as i might become more informed on all matters i’d like to discuss. i was tempted to start a new topic but, well, i think i’ve already explained why i didn’t.
first, saving the rest of my observations, complaints and suggestions re: diy.soylent.me, i’ll continue with a question (another question if you count the implied one (or two or…) of my first paragraph). anyway…
the first “ingredient” i added to my first “recipe” didn’t show up in the search. so i painstakingly added all the nutritional data manually. doing so, reassuring myself that, despite the fact that all this data was available in various databases on the web already, that at least my efforts would save others from duplication at least locally.
however, i then discovered a recipe which not only utilized that exact ingredient but was named after it. and, named exactly as i had searched in both cases for that matter. no, i hadn’t done a recipe search for the ingredient, but then, why would you. it seems that there are only the two search options - within ingredients or for recipes. no general search and i couldn’t search within “users” either.
so, what am i missing?
and no it isn’t the feedback button btw…
