This week: A few Feature reminders, recipes, EYBD Previews and more

This week we are going to cover a few reminders for our Members. The first one with regard to the Bookmarklet feature here at EYB. Whenever you see a recipe on a food website that you like the look of, you can add it to your Bookshelf using the EYB Bookmarklet.

  1. Go to your Home Page. Drag the Bookmarklet and drop it on to your favorites bar. To drag it you need to left click on the widget, hold the click down then move it to the bookmarks bar.
  2. Depending on your browser type, it may look slightly different. If you cannot see the Bookmarklet on the Home page it may be that your screen size setting has excluded it. Try resetting the zoom to 100%. Whenever you see a recipe on a food website that you want to add to your Bookshelf, just click on the Bookmarklet and the EYB recipe index form will pop up. Make sure you are signed in to EYB before you do this.
  3. For more instructions (how to install on an iPad, etc) and tips, see our Help section.

Make sure you add the appropriate ingredients to the form – better to add more ingredients than less – some members are adding a single ingredient. In order to avoid delays in Bookmarklet submissions, please refer to the indexing guidelines, so they’ll be speedily approved for your holiday cooking.

In June, Jane announced the new Feature: Adding a book to the EYB Library. This feature is for books that cannot be added using our Import function – i.e., older books without ISBN, international titles that do not import automatically, etc. Please remember current titles, popular authors/books, and more will likely already be entered into our Library so please check first either by searching the title, author or ISBN.

A few reminders with regard to manually adding new books: Please follow our format for Title and Subtitle using caps e.g Noodle Worship: Easy Recipes for All the Dishes You Crave from Asian, Italian and American Cuisines. Entering as much information as possible i.e. page numbers, ISBN, author, book type, date of publication, and uploading a cover helps us to verify the books more quickly. If you manually enter a book and we have questions we will email you – so please check your spam and junk folders for any EYB emails.

Our team of member and pro indexers are working hard indexing titles, both new and old. Below are just a few highlighted titles. A reminder: newly indexed titles will always show up at the top of the EYB Library and your Bookshelf so you will always know which titles have just been indexed.
