A new look to the cake page?

Maybe it’s just my computer, but there seems to be a new look to the cake page. At first I couldn’t even figure out where /how to upload a comment. The “new” button seems to be gone. Then I found the “+” button. Changes make me uncomfortable :)
For anyone in the know, can we no longer see how many faves a cake has gotten?
It would have been nice had someone explained the changes to be beforehand.
Or maybe I’m the only one who feels as if the carpet has been pulled out beneath me ….

And can anyone explain the difference between the “like” button and the “fave” button?? And if I pin something, where will I be able to find it and how is that different than going to my list of faves?

Michal Bulla

Hi there,

you are right. We did a redesign to all of the pages, but don’t worry, you are not the only one who sees it :).

Here are the answers:

  • We will add the number of favorites below the cake title
  • Like button is a Facebook Like Button – If you click on it, your like will be visible on the Cake If it’s shared on facebook.
  • Fave button is “our favorite button”. This works the same way it worked before – number of faves counts to a cake score.
  • Pin Button is a Pinterest button – you can use it to pin pages to your Pinterest account if you have one

The Garden Baker

Thank you so much, Michal, for the explanation. I feel better now :)
And since we are already chatting, I have one more question: Why are the “daily top 3’s” called that since often there are as many as 8 top 3’s for a single day???

Michal Bulla

Daily Top 3 Cakes chart is re-evaluated every hour. If there is a cake that gets higher score than the Daily Top 3 cakes, it is automatically moving up in the chart.

We should probably change that name to “Daily Favorite Cakes” or something like that.

Well, ya miss a couple of days…and Bam, big changes!!! Guess I’ll get use to the new format. I do like the title… “Daily Favourite Cakes”.
Thanks M & M for consistently keeping CD fresh and innovative. 💕

Well, blow my blouse off! I don’t even recognize CD! Got some familiarizing to do.

The Garden Baker

Sandra, you just made me laugh out loud with your, “blow my blouse off” :) Never heard that one before!

Sandra Smiley

It is from an old joke, The Garden Baker, and I always thought it was so funny. Several years ago I was planting an iris bed, on my knees and bent over. The wind was so fierce, it literally blew my blouse off and all the way over my arms before I could catch it. Mike loved it, me not so much.

Sandra Smiley

Hello all! Can anyone please tell me how to Follow another member? I cannot seem to find the “button”. Also, I do not see, on my page, how many members I am following. Am I looking in all the wrong places? Thanks for any help!

Bennett Flor Perez

howdy all, i got the email notifier that my cake went top 3 but the link only shows my cake photo without the cake decor badge or the widget in it unlike before. not sure why though? is thjs also a new change? Love, Bennett

The Garden Baker

Sandra,if you are on someone’s cake page, to the left of the cake photo there is a vertical list of icons. The top one with the symbol of 2 people, is the follow icon. If you put your curser on top of it you can see the word “follow”. If you want to follow, just click. Hope that helps. I also can’t see who I am following … or for that matter who anyone else is following :(

Another problem is that all of our comments here on the forum (and also on the cake pages) are not dated. I think it is important to know if a comment is from a year ago, a month ago or a minute ago.

I also wrote to Michal about another issue and haven’t as yet gotten a reply. I have no way of knowing who has faved my cakes (cause it’s just nice to know sometimes). When I click on the fave button (on my own cake) like I used to do to see that info, I end up faving my own cake instead of seeing a listing of others :(

Daphne

It also makes me difficult to navigate through these new sites, I can’t see and see who liked my work. I see the comments, but I do not see the hearts like. I need to get to know myself better and try and look.

Sandra Smiley

Thank you, The Garden Baker! I knew it had to be there and I just couldn’t find it.

I just noticed something interesting. Before the CD update, if your cake made daily top 3, the daily “top 3” banner was on the bottom of your cake picture. Then the banner stayed forever on your picture in your profile. Now the new cakes posted don’t have the banner. Nothing afterwards to even remind you, months later, your cake ever made top 3. I just checked my pictures on my page, and any of my former top 3 cakes no longer have the banner. 😢😢
