Welcome to the new TheChocolateLife.com



New Features, Tips, and Notices

Classifieds will be returning in the next few days!

January 29: At the request of a member I have added the text in discussion groups into the site-wide search. The result is that search results are more comprehensive - and that searches take longer. After working with this, the tradeoff is worth it.

January 27: Social Sharing is active. Want to share a photo to your Pinterest, Instagram, or Twitter/Facebook feeds - or more? When you see a social sharing button on the bottom of a post or photo, click to share. >> Here's a photo I shared to a Pinterest board. <<

January 23: Jamroom's sitewide search is VERY cool. The search results are organized by type. So if the word or phrase is found in Discussions and Photos and Blogs, you'll see that. >> Click here to see what I mean - A search on the word Pods. <<

January 21: There is now a media embed tool in the WYSIWYG editor, just to the left of the Smiley icon.

January 18: I have created an >> FAQ Forum << specifically to cover changes and additions, and to report bugs.
