I made a journal entry but when I try to view it under "me" it says "no recent activity" but yet, it is there under the "record a journal entry" button. I also have my privacy set to allow journal entries to be seen by everyone. What am I missing?

I think it takes a bit of time to get noticed... On the Canadian side there is less activity. There is a bit more on the US side. But if you see people you "like" friend them... take some interest and things may pick up.

Okay, thanks. I thought I was taking interest by commenting on some of the posts in the forum. I guess every site has its quirks eh?

As I said virtually no one checks this forum. You cannot see it with the App and most people use the app, I believe, I checked out your post. It was a good one.

I guess I don't understand too much about this site then. I don't have a cell phone, so I don't use the app. But, when I sign in the first page of information that I see is everyone's recent activity, which I am guessing is their journal entry posts..and there are a lot of those, and they all seem to have comments. So, if they don't see them with the app, then why are they posting journal entries? (Sorry, I'm not trying to sound like a smartass, I just truly don't understand how it works)

Yeah it is a bit confusing. You will figure it out. I do have the app but I use the PC normally. Journals and Forums are two separate things here. Everyone can see journals. That is why most of the activity is there.

Exactly! Everyone can see the journals...That was the original question...Why is my journal entry not showing up under "recent activity" but I can see journals by everyone else? It wasn't a question about the forums.

Hi. I generally use my iPad and go directly to the site (FatSecret.com). The Canadian site was giving me problems so now I always go to the American site. When do this I see waaay more than on my iPhone app. It’s easier to navigate the website than the app. If you want to see people’s journals, go directly to the website and skip the app. The app is handy for quickly recording things like weight and food. But it’s hard to see comments or find challenges and other information. Also, on the website settings you can adjust your privacy settings the way you want them to be including if you want others to see your posts.

Thanks @egdw I will try the American site.

However, I'm not sure why what I'm asking seems to be confusing people, maybe I'm not asking in a clear manner, so here it is broken down...

1. I can't/don't use the app...I don't have a cell phone.

2. I use my laptop and visit the website directly.

3. I see everyone's journals and comments on their journals just fine.

4. My own journal does not appear under recent activity like everyone else's does.

5. I already set up my privacy settings to allow others to see my journal.

So, still my question remains,

6. why cant I see MY OWN journal entries under the "recent activity" screen when I click on "show activity from me?"

Maybe something is wrong. You do not show up in my list either and you should once I comment on your journal. Use the contact us link on the bottom of the page and ask FatSecret to look into it. They are pretty good getting back to you

I had a feeling I'd have to contact customer support but was hoping it was an easy fix. Thanks for suggesting. It's frustrating to be new on a site and have a series of issues at only 1 week into it. Last week I was somehow locked out of my account and my email was not recognized even though I was still showing up as a member. Then my recipe was pending for a few days so I asked why, and they said they were backed up and it would be a while. Now, this, and my cookbook doesn't show up, I'm guessing that has something to do with the recipe thing. I just wanted to make connections and I'm finding it harder and harder to do Sad

A bummer! I agree. But still time to work it out.

I sent you a personal message. Hope you got it

No credit for exercise?
