Because I like to understand what I see, I would like to know how the featured recipe is chosen, I thought it was random, but it cannot be.... Great recipes are featured, but the users are almost always the same. Why is that? Maybe this was answered before, but I cannot find a thread about it. Thanks! ;) Ana
New today recipes are all new recipes listed in the list section and the 'featured' recipes are meant to be those with clear photos large enough to crop well(the system sets an auto crop on all that are put into the "featured" section, this isn't hand done) They try to not feature any with non original photos, but some slip past.
As for the Top Left feature.... that one really is random and is picked out of past featureds. No real rhyme or reason to them. They hoped to reach back further since just "the change" but, again, it hasn't happened, yet.
