      Hey M K Paul- so long as you published those recipes with the Ratings Capsule set to recipe ratings for the first time this month, they've been properly entered. There's nothing else you need to do. big_smile

    Hello. Got a recipe Hub done, saved and ready to publish with all the required capsules and requirements met.  However, when I click the preview tab in the ratings capsule edit box I get an error message "Something went wrong..."  And no submit rating tab is present.  Is this going to negatively impact the submission for the contest?  Should I go ahead and just publish it anyway or wait until the problem is resolved as the deadline is days away?

      I'm so glad!
      You're seeing trouble with that capsule because your Hub isn't published. You have to publish the Hub for recipe ratings to function. smile

    Congrats to all the winners thus far! And good luck to everyone who participated!
    The recipe Hub is one of my favorite features and I plan on using it and using it often!
    I love to cook and share recipes with others! Food and nutrition are meant for everyone to be able to enjoy, not just sitting in a dusty cookbook!

    Congrats and good luck again!

      Perhaps one of the judges was allergic to peanut butter? You know how people get with food allergies. wink

          It is a great hub. I especially like the look of concentration on your face as you spread the peanut butter.
