As you may have noticed, we have a slightly updated design to our "Start" page where you are taken after logging into SparkPeople. The overall functionality and all the links are the same. However, we did an extensive amount of testing the page with both new and experienced members to find some things that were not as intuitive as we would like. We also added a small "Hide" link by each section so you can hide sections if you don't use them.
As part of this, we slightly changed the "navigation" links at the top of the site (My Trackers, Healthy Lifestyle, etc). We used to have a 2nd row of links, but these were redundant with the "dropdown" links you get when putting your mouse over the navigation. Again, this was done to simplify the site.
Here's a new tutorial video that points out all the key features of the Start page. It's a great thing to watch whether you're a long-time member or a new one, plus it'll point out all the new features of our redesign.
If you have any problems or questions, please let us know here.
Well, I was commenting on this site and when I tried to see if I misspelled something my note was gone. I do not like the big ads popping up while I am writing to someone. There is usually no place to hit to get rid of it. Then there is the little plate of cookies at the bottom left that keeps me from seeing what I am writing until I roll it up again. I will admit that I am not very good at this computer stuff, but have never had this before. OK, I tried to make my point, but I do love SparkPeople, and all the friends I've made. I thank you for that. Respectfully, Betty (javgal47) 1641 days ago
My weight tracker says I have lost 37 POUNDS when in fact it is KILOGRAMMES. Could that be altered or have I just got to suck it up. I weigh in kg because I prefer to know what the dr will be expecting (and it makes calculating BMI easier). Thanks for all the work you've done, however a little further "tweak" would be nice! 1641 days ago
I'm going to have to work on a working relationship with the my Goals & Progress section LOL Seeing the blaring '0 lbs lost' section made me cringe, but maybe that's what I need to get myself moving in the right direction again!
