Welcome to the new, hopefully improved, amishcookonline.  The Amish Cook column has had an online presence in one form or another since the year 2000.  Some of you have been with us since those earliest days.  The site has evolved and changed over the years. I want to offer a public and profuse thank you to Brian Fending who really made it possible in those early days to offer The Amish Cook online.  This new site allows me more flexibility and options to offer content in a variety of formats: video, audio, pictorial, and print.

A brief tutorial:

All new stuff that I post will show up right on the front page.  But if you just visit maybe once a week and want to read The Amish Cook column but don’t want to scroll through a week’s worth of posts, just click above where it says THE AMISH COOK COLUMN or if you want to just see all recipes within the past week, click above where it says RECIPES.  The recipes and columns will all be easily archived for quick browsing.  By the way, the recipe archive is a bit of a mess right now…that is going to take a couple of weeks to get up and running completely, so I appreciate your patience!

One thing that will hopefully disappear on this site is the relentless spamming that became a real annoyance.  We tried mightily to fight off the spammers but it seemed like we only succeeded in making it more difficult for our readers to post, the spammers simply evolved.  This site should end that.  So, explore and enjoy!  This site is a work in progress and there is going to be a learning curve (for all of us), but I hope you enjoy the new digs!

    1st bug: I can’t log in using the “Log In” link at the top. Using either my “lougender” ID or my full email just gives back an “invalid username” message…

          Hi Kevin, I too could not log in….I had it set up that if I came to the AC page, my pass word and log in was saved…even when I put my email in the slot, it wouldn’t accept me…so I came in as new. LOL…

          BY THE WAY…LOVE THE PAGE.

        Make me number three. My login does not work either. I looked up my user name and password just to make sure I remembered correctly and I did. Love the new site, what i can see without logging in. Thanks for your help.

        • Ditto…also having a problem logging in. It tells me my password is invalid, but when it prompts to remind me, tells me the email function has been disabled.

    Bug #2: Clicking on the “Podcasts” link on the right gives me the audio, but no video…

    p.s. — Kevin: is there going to be any way for we, the users, to initiate entries to the blog, or are we limited to posting comments to your entries? I realize that this may be the only way to limit the spammers, but it also limits the “community” feel of the old site….

    • Hi, Lou – A podcast is meant to be just audio…soon the podcasts will also be available for free via itunes and people can listen to them in their car, etc:), so it’s meant to be just audio – Kevin

    • I was wondering the same thing – is there no longer anywhere to leave comments other than posting to your entries? I also cannot “log in”, but am wondering what is the reason to log in?

      • Alicia this takes on a more traditional WordPress/blog-type site where you can comment on my stuff, but there is no longer a “reader blog” feature where others can post random stuff….I’ll keep my ears open, if that is something people want back, I’ll note accordingly…And also you don’t need to login to leave comments, there’s really no reason to log in other than to sort of “join the conversation.”

        • “Join the conversation” what does that mean? I am commenting without logging on (because it won’t let me) so is there another feature that is there when you log on?

          • Alicia, the short answer is: “I don’t think so”… Some of this is going to require a day or two for me to get familiar with this…so I appreciate the patience:) I think this is going to be a great site, there’s just going to be a bit of a learning curve for me!

    Kevin: I’m beginning to see a problem with the new website which is probably related to what you indicated about not needing to login — there is no indication of new posts/comments vs. posts or comments that we have already seen previously… As the new site becomes more “populated”, this is going to become a problem in keeping up with everyone’s comments without missing any. I hope something can be done to forestall this….

      • Heather, for now, no one needs to login..there IS a login screen, but that is just for people who have WordPress blogs, so for now, just enjoy the unimpeded access to all areas of the site!
