Shock I just realized that my ticker is behind 5 lbs in its display of my current weight! Shock
Can anyone tell me why & how I can fix it?!
For some reason my weigh ins & posts on my challenges are not recording either & havent been since the last challenge I participated in!

Mya, I think when you are at "My Weight History" and you clicked to add a historical weight (from a day from the past) FatSecret messes up. If you know your FS password, you can log out of the FatSecret you usually go to, then find another website like FatSecret Canada or FatSecret Australia and log in there. Doing that will not fix the signature weight loss ticker. You will need to enter your weight for that day and then this might get your ticker to start working again.

It's a known fatsecret bug. Everytime you weigh in the error message appears, as long as that is happening your progress in your challenges is not being raported and also your weight loss ticker will be stuck. As Deb said signing up to a different fs may help, sometimes it doesn't and you just have to wait. I waited for 2 months the last time and currently I get the error message again but I'm not participating in challenges so it doesn't matter to me.

May have you started weighing in on a monthly bile device or iPad? FS doesn't like my kindle so my ticker hasn't usually dated since last October and I've lost a lot since then.

Yeah, thanks Snow, that was a BIG reason I stopped participating in challenges but I guess I thought it was time to try again. Probably will be my last fs challenge I join. It gets frustrating!

Msbuggirl I agree. I really like the buddies here as well as the formats but I want someplace that I can count on to be reliable & not just conveniant. Especially since I want to have access to it for LIFE! If it doesnt get corrected I may jump over to Lose It where one of my RL friends is already a member,or check out myfitnesspal where my kids are members. I dont know,I really want it fixed then I dont need to think about going elsewhere.

I have reported the same bug several times now. It was fine until I took on more than one challenge - not sure if there in lies the root cause because their programmer should be able to fix something so simple and widespred. Or so you would think.

You could just switch the ticker off I suppose. Might be better not to show it rather than show an inaccurate one? I had a problem with mine once, only lasted a couple of days. I thought it might have been because I input weight using the mobile app. It went okay after I input weight through website. No idea if that was really the cause or whether it just fixed itself anyway.

My challenge progress quit again, it worked fine for awhile and now I'm getting errors again. My weight has stayed the same so it's not messing with my weight.

I am getting the error messages for months now, nothing you can do. They will fix it eventually, then it will work for a few months then get broken again LOL

I think it been 2 months here with the error messages and my ticker has been stuck longer. I stay because the food data base is extensive and easy to navigate. Did I mention the cool people here?
