I agree: I don't like the new nutrition tracker. It's harder and more time-consuming to track, when this activity needs to be as quick and simple as possible. I'm not going to ditch SP over it, but I'd like to go back to the old method, if possible. This new drop-down box reminds me of the new Facebook search drop-down, which IS so annoying I'm avoiding FB as much as possible. Keep at it, folks!

The issue I am having is with tracking foods out of my favorites list.


To get my list to pop up to view takes at least 30 seconds to load. Then I type in my food, every other option pops up but what I typed in? Then if I "select" from the drop down menu it deletes my choice and gives me nothing to track.

Time consuming process to track daily foods & then add in a new not-user-friendly-version makes it very frustrating.

Most SP updates I've accepted and learned to use this updated tracker is not working out.

Yeah, it's kind of a weird (ahem!) improvement. They already had a box that made suggestions that didn't block the results box or prevent you from completing your search terms. The escape "fix" isn't really a fix, since you hit escape, then start typing again, and it comes back up, again. And if you wait until you search and then hit escape, it deletes the search altogether. I'm just trying to think of it as a quirk. If I started SP with this misery, I would never have known anything different, so....

LOL. I ate a few chocolate chips and when searching for them had to hit escape SIX TIMES.

I'm thinking by now if it's not fixed it won't be.

I, too, have this problem. I DESPISE this new nutrition tracker and would LOVE to know WHY it was changed. There is no reason for me to have to hit esc multiple times when just searching for an item. This 'new feature' has made tracking so annoying that I am nearly finished with it and will go to another site because that is the biggest thing for me! Why SP changed something that wasn't messed up, who knows.


Please pass this feedback along! Mu husband, all 6 of my co-workers, and I ALL HATE the new tracker. Please allow us to go back to the good old way that had absolutely nothing wrong with it!

There was a recent change on the Nutrition Tracker - for more info about that please see this blog: www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?post=nut

. If you continue having trouble getting the dropdown suggestion box to disappear: if you hit the ESC key on your keyboard, it will go away.

I hope that helps!

Am I the only one with this problem? When I start to type in an item on the nutrition tracker, the drop-down suggestion box now is drop-down instead of...drop-up, I guess...and it stops me in the middle of my word, and then keeps me from searching. It's a bit hard to explain.

So, if I want to put in "cheddar," the tracker will make a drop down of suggestions that covers the results box. I hit "Search," and nothing happens. I look at my search term, and it's "chedd." I have to click outside the search box, and then click "Search" again, and if I'm lucky, the drop-down disappears and I can now select my food. WHY? It's annoying.

It looks like maybe either I or SP missed an upgrade on IE, but I don't know if that's the case.
