Tue, 26 Jul 2016 08:48:31 EST Ad Blocker After googling for a sparkpeople page with less ads, I came across a message someone had posted on the site itself about how they had to get an ad blocker just to be able to use the site. I didn't know it could be this easy. I've installed an ad blocker when previously I would've shied away from them and find that my frustration level has almost disappeared because of the new ad blocker. I was desperate but thank you, random user, that your problem/complaint made it to google! <em>387...

Am I just missing it? Thanks for the help! Mon, 25 Jul 2016 10:08:47 EST People complain about changes so... After a change has been left for awhile....maybe once in awhile change back to the "old " way and see if people like it --or if they still complain. <BR> <BR> example the old "huddle" is now gone---so put it back temporarily ... <BR> <BR> Probably you can't put it back on the right column like a couple of years ago, but I bet people would not like it and complain. <BR> <BR> chris Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:33:07 EST How to know if my friend feed needs correction? I think I inadvertently duplicated or tripled my newest feed post (with a photo of a dog and a dozen chicks).

When I try to type my post in a team, the video ad that runs on the page where I am typing slows everything down to a halt. I have to wait for it to catch up, just sitting there while my typing catches up with me, and then I can type some more. <BR> <BR> It's so bad that it discourages me from posting on the teams. <BR> <BR> Even here on this page, the same thing.

At the top of the screen there was a message that said I had "2 messages". I thought that was the new way to get 'mail' from Spark People / friends. I clicked and the screen went blue. Fortunately, I got out before it got into my computer...but just wanted you to know. I"m assuming that there are a team of people who are monitoring for these kinds of attacks. It was a little scary.

I think it would be great for sparkers to be able to be awarded a ribbon or Trophy each time they increase their percentage. <BR> It would be very encouraging and a great incentive to keep on learning about health and fitness! <BR> Thanks, <BR> ~Susan Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:13:41 EST Why can't I access SP from my smartphone?

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:21:44 EST Is there a way to track Vitamin D from the sun? My nutritional reports are pretty inaccurate. I've been trying to add foods when I can get the correct nutritional data. But the one thing I cannot figure out how to fix is the Vitamin D in the report. <BR> <BR> There seems to be no way to add Vitamin D from the sun.

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 13:20:26 EST Edited Weigh-In, now Ticker stuck on May 26 I edited my weights to record what my weight had been before I joined Spark people, and now my ticker and my "Start" page seem stuck on my 5/26 weight of 315 lbs. <BR> <BR> When I go to correct this on my "Weigh-In" page, I can't, because the Weigh-In page already/still shows my current correct weight of 229.8 lbs as of 7/3. <BR> <BR> How do I fix this?

I'm cannot get favorites to load which in may case is a rather large file. I made many mistakes in my early days setting up my favorites and would like to remove multiple items. Is there a way to do this or must I take all day to remove one item at a time? Can I trash the whole thing and start over? Why won't favorites open in Firefox, I have cleaned my cookies and history many times.

I cannot seem to search foods by <BR> <BR> "search my manually entered" <BR> <BR> anymore. This was by far the most used way i searched, being in the UK and entering my own foods. <BR> <BR> They are not all saved as favourites and I can see no way to access them in the up to date app. <BR> <BR> Has this really useful feature been removed? Can it be reinstated? it seems a really odd thing to remove.

I answered Vitamin C and it was marked incorrect, but when I read the explanation, it said eggs contain all the vitamins except Vitamin C.

While I love this feature, I'm confused because it shows my "All Day" Calorie Burn in my Fitness tracker, even if I haven't worked out. I'm guessing its counting any calories I burned (based on my heart rate) above and beyond my basal metabolic rate. But then on Spark, it looks like I've worked out for 111 minutes and burned 1100 calories just yesterday alone and then all of my nutrition windows changed (it now suddenly...

Damien Mon, 20 Jun 2016 19:39:38 EST HTML QUERY Another query, this time about HTML. I've just posted a blog, and it has come out with quite a few triangles, where my dashes, speech marks and apostrophe's should be. I know this is an HTML issue, but how do I cure it, please? <BR> <BR> Why does this happen, anyway? Apostrophe's, especially, are very much a part of correct writing, so why are they affected? <BR> <BR> Thank you. Mon, 20 Jun 2016 17:46:35 EST Send "real" email to an SP member via SP?

When posting blogs I am getting a "No HTML Please" page. I cannot post until all the HTML is gone now apparently. <BR> <BR> This never used to happen. I used to be able to edit the HTML out of the blog after posting where it became obvious and that was handy as it's hard to find all the HTML sometimes. <BR> <BR> What happened? Why did the website get dumber? (For lack of a better word.)

I didn't ask it to do this. I don't track my sleep in Spark People -- I use a different app, which is much more detailed. When I click on "add/remove special goals", however, it gives me the option to remove the other two that are shown. For the sleep tracking, it only gives me the option to edit it. <BR> <BR> How do I get this "goal" off my page?

Unless I'm totally missing it, I am unable to get to my own SP page, and although I can track my weight, there is no place I can find in this mobile page to track my measurements. It would be nice if all versions of SP were a little more uniform.

Mon, 30 May 2016 14:46:06 EST Ads causing computer to lock When I'm opening an article, logging food or fitness, I have to wait until the ads completely come up. Otherwise, the computer screen locks up and I can't enter anything or even scroll down. This is not limited to one computer. I don't mind the ads, but I do mind that while they are downloading to the screen, everything stops. What can be done about this? I use Google Chrome.

If I can't, how do I get it to stop popping up at me? <BR> <BR> Thanks much.
