Cherrill here, in Pizarra. I've recommended this site to a friend of mine who LOVES what goes on here - but she can't join. Every time we try - the site says she is either already a member, or she is using the wrong log in stuff. She's never joined the site - but would really like to. PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO HELP HER!! Thanks and love to all xx
Hello, Kent and Kristopher and others. I wanted to let you know that I was unable to log in for about a month or so after periodic attempts. I went through the forum topics looking for info about unsuccessful logins. I tried the forgot-password/forgot-user routes several times. I'd receive the check-email autoreply, but I would never receive an email.
I also wrote to firstname.lastname@example.org a couple of times, with subject "Unable to log in--SENT FROM HELP GROUP", similar to the suggestion that Kent advised in Password Incorrect Every Time I Login. I didn't receive any reply to my original or followup message. Is it possible that my emails to went into a spam bucket?
What finally got me back to successfully logging in was finding my valid password that I had written elsewhere. Anyway, I'm glad to be able to log in again.
Good to hear Whilldtkwriter. That was something that only Kristopher (owner/creator) of the site could have helped you with, leaving the rest of us as the cheering section. Hope to see you around more often.
Thanks for your response, Lovebreezy. I maybe need to bookmark grouprecipes and maybe topics that I follow or have followed, as email notifications don't seem to come in. Profiles also don't leave links to places I've posted to so that I can easily return, I guess. (I'd left a message and also wrote grouprecipe emails to a couple of people WRT fruit cocktail cake, Fruit Cocktail Cake. No reply.)
The Fruit Cocktail recipe is one of Pat's, a dear lady who passed away 3 years ago...I personally would use the 15.25 oz can of fruit cocktail, it's the size most commonly used and 2 boxes of Jiffy cake mix are the equivalent to a 18 oz cake mix. You can save the recipes by bookmarking them, so they are easy to find by doing a search of your bookmarks when you decide to make the recipe:) You can also use your planner (below the intro of the recipe) and add the recipe you want to make soon there:) Hope this helps and it's good to see you!
NPMarie, thanks for your info about Pat and your advice about quantities! I've actually kept this HELP url around for easy find. :-) I'd actually emailed people at Jiffy and asked about their cake mix formulation. In the 70s, companies started adding pudding after a Bake-Off winner's recipe had the addition. The Jiffy people say they never changed the ingredients. Using cake mix to bake cookies is a different recipe now with the newer cake mixes--more oil, no water. JIffy's would be an older recipe--2 boxes, 2 eggs, 2 T water, and 1/4 C oil. Eh, if I continue to go off-topic, I might need to communicate differently than on this url. :-)
You are so welcome Whilldtkwriter:) That's interesting about Jiffy not changing their original ingredients! I like using Jiffy, especially the corn bread, it's good and inexpensive! You can go off topic and talk about whatever your heart desires here! That's whats so great about this site/group, everyone is here to help with any questions you may have..I know The Help Group has been there for me in the past:)
