Food and Cooking forum used to have a half dozen posts a day or more. Since the upgrade? ONE post a day... this new forum is not as user friendly, to hard to read new posts in just the forums you are interested in(click on a forum, now try to read new posts on topics you are following. Wait, there is no new posts button like th eold forum had, I have to scroll thru stuff I already read...). Sorry but this upgrade was a downgrade.

Thanks for the feedback we are still working some of the issues out and will look into the post decline in that forum. In the 20 years running ChefTalk we have never had any of the (many over the years) upgrades that someone did not get frustrated I guess it is just part of change and moving forward.

I noticed a decline too, but I didn't know if that is because people have less questions at the moment or just because the recent new posts have been on topics I have no information on.

I just go to the three bars next to the left of the CHEFTALK 1573920667133.png , and eft click. Menu comes up. Left click on latest activity. That shows me new posts, etc.

One peculiarity is that the knife forum is quite dead. No posts since October! I'm not sure why this should be, but it's a definite change: that forum used to have scads of posts all the time!

Clicking new posts brings up new posts in ALL forums and I have to wade thru garbage I am not interested in. I am done here. Time to find a functional forum.

Don't go....
Please stay and participate. I do enjoy your posts, esp on the grilling, bbq-ing and outdoor cooking parts

If you enter at cheftalk.com you can see all the new posts as well as browse all the forums and see all of your "conversations". Everything on one page.

I'm confused on if the issue is the layout and ease of finding new posts or that there are literally less posts to begin with?

While I agree it seems to be less streamlined (at least for me) I can generally access all the areas I want to. I don't surf individual forums anyways, and just scroll through all the new posts until I see one I want to look at. I only click on individual forums when I want to post something specifically to that forum.
