Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

To help others find your photos easily, it is helpful to give your pictures proper names. When you upload your photos, please give them the label they deserve, i.e. “pink baby shower cake”. Using the word “cake” in your title helps more people find your picture. As more and more pictures are added, people will be relying on the search tool to find certain kinds of cakes. If your cake is not properly labeled, it won’t be found.

We have just added subcategories to the photo section to group related pictures together. If you add the appropriate category to your title, description or tag, it will go to the right place. So, if you have a photo of a soccer ball cake, just add sports somewhere in the title, description or tag. The choices are: anniversary, baby shower, cartoon, graduation, holiday, misc, sports and wedding. Right now, only the photos that were labeled with these words are showing in the categories. You can edit any of your photos.

If you are having trouble uploading your profile picture or cake photos, the trouble is usually the file size or the file type. Pictures coming off your camera are huge and need to be shrunk. If you do not have a photo editing tool, you can download Irfanview for free at www.irfanview.com. Also, the acceptable file formats are .jpg, .gif and .png. If your picture is not in this format, rename the picture so it does have one of these file extensions.

32 different apps are available to customize your profile page. The link is available in the left hand box of your page. You'll be taken to a list of different apps you can choose from.

Anyone can create a group and it doesn't necessarily have to be a location.

If you want to know when someone is in the chatroom, you'll need to go to the chatroom page and click on the speaker at the bottom of the box. Adjust the volume so it is audible. Then you will hear a sound when you are on the site. If you post in the chatroom, others will know you are there.

If you are not able to view the videos, you may need to download flash. Here is a link to the download.

If you find your emails are getting out of hand, go to your profile, click on profile settings, and adjust your notifications.

If you have any problems figuring anything out, just leave me a comment.

Dumb question .. how do we add photos to the photos tab under specific titles? I'd love to add some of my work to it. I've added the photos to my profile, titled it and tagged it. Thanks.
Heather, if you use those subcategories in either your title, description or tags, the photo will automatically appear in the correct section.
I have a simple question...I have been to some memebrs profile pages and their profile page is different colors. I was wondering how do you change the color settings in your individual profile page?? for example if I wanted my profile page to be pink and purple instead of brown how do I go about doing that...Thanks
On your profile page, beneath your profile photo, you will see Manage Page or Photo. Click on page and then you'll see a list of things. Go to appearance. That will allow you select different looks or upload a picture for your background.
I've been here for awhile and still finding new things! It's all about finding your way around... kind of like living in a big city!!! For this country hick this is a big step!!!

Is a way to print out a discussion?  Thanks!
Melissa, I don't believe there is a way to print a discussion but I was able to copy and paste it into Word.  It isn't formatted correctly but at least you have something you can file

I have yet to receive an email notification even though that's the option I have chosen.  I would love to receive notifications.  I miss out on so much because I have to remember what I'm looking for and then hunt it down.

Dawn, trying adding cakeswebake.com to your address book. Maybe they are getting caught in your spam filter.
