Logging Daily Food

Is there any way to manually add something to food diary that isn't in fatsecret data base?

I add food to the database all the time.
But sometimes it's not clear on how to do so.
I think they changed it recently.
got this from FAQ's menu, bottom of the page:

How do I add a food to the database?
When you click "Add item" from your food diary, you can click on "New Item" or if you search for a food and can't find it in the database, you can click on "Add this item to the food database". You will then be able to add an item to the food database by completing all details for the food such as the brand, product and nutritional information. You can choose to share the food with other members and add it to any meal and use it over again.

checking today, I DON'T see "New Item" or add item, anywhere.
also, it seems to be easier to do from my Android phone.

entering My Bio fails
Thanks Mummydee and JustineJones, good ideas.
I tried both, but made no difference,
Even one short sentence gets the same null result.
Oh well, but very strange.
every time I log in I check, and the same short bio I tried to enter comes up when I go to 'My Bio".
with the same "SAVE" & "CANCEL" buttons waiting.

entering My Bio fails
tried many times, but this web site refused to accept or complete the process.
sometimes come up with error messages, apologies.
then later it just fails to complete the process.

Also tried on 2 different browsers. same thing.
I'm on a Mac

Wow that is great.Smile I make my own acidophiles.(Milk kefir's) It too contains plenty of B vit. and K vit, plus acidophiles and bifacdophiles! It is great! Smile~Ann

Thanks Ann, same to you Smile
I wish more people were aware, like you are, the many benefits of True 'Basic" foods.
and that Probiotics like kefir and yogurt and kefir water actually PRODUCE B vitamins in our digestive system!
FOOD is Medicine too.
(BTW: I can't eat cow milk produces anymore, due to being allergic to milk protein (like most people actually are and don't know it.)
Now I make Kefir Water.
I'm glad you can still use kefir. Smile

changing a past weigh in or goal
We CAN change past weight entries if that's what you mean:
Go to home page,
choose My Weight History on right side part way down,
then find "Enter historical weight entries" which is further down on the right.
From there choose the date you want to change on the left, in the calendar.
Enter the new weight amount, and hit Save.
