This discussion starts up every few months and I really don't want anyone to take this the wrong way but I know a lot of people don't worry about listing a description about their cake but if you could please list some "key" words so that we can all search and find all the beautiful cakes!!! It is really very helpful. I hate the thought of so many cakes getting "lost" because someone couldn't find them in a search!!!

Again... not complaining, just asking.. also letting so many new people know about this valuable little tool!!

This would probably go a long way getting those "undernoticed cakes" noticed, as well....

The main reason I put cakes into my favorites is if they DON'T have those key words. If they do I know I can find them again; If they don't I know I'll never see them-or be able to find them-again.

I agree but for a time there I couldn't add any key words or a description to my uploads - I'd type the information in but when I uploaded it was gone ;( this was in August ...

You should be able to add them to pictures you have already posted. Just "edit" and add the description and keywords you want on there.

I went to re edit my picture over a week ago and nothing changed. Posted on the technical forum, no answer, posted again, got an answer that Jackie was out of town for the week and would look into it. I have yet to see any further responses on that thread and my words still aren't updated.

I agree and I also appreciate it when the baker adds a little description about what he/she did. It helps us novice people!

I've sent a PM or two and suggested they go in and edit the keywords to add one that I thought might help find it better! Also use various spellings. If doing an M&M cake, enter keywords of "M&M" and "M & M". If doing a Coke cake, enter keywords of "Coke" and "Coca Cola". Etc. thumbs_up.gif
