Navigating the Site
1. When I print recipes from the site, the text on the right side is cut off. How can I prevent this?
We offer a "printer-friendly" option for recipes posted online.
Click on "Print." This text (and an icon of a printer) is located in the upper right-hand corner, above the title of the recipe.
The printer-friendly formatted page will load. This will reformat the text to fit on an 8 1/2 by 11-inch sheet of paper.
We do not offer recipe card-size (3 x 5 or 4 x 6) text formatting at this time.
We do not offer the ability to exclude the photograph from the recipe or project at this time.
2. Where are the other parts to recipes and projects (for example, templates)?
Whenever you see a hyperlink (identified by blue highlighted text) in the list of ingredients, or project instructions, click on it once. Additional information will load.
Hyperlinks are also included in our recipes or project information, when they have additional components. The link to the information you desire is provided in the ingredients or materials list. Click on the link once and the information will load.
3. Are articles and recipes from the magazines posted online?
Select articles and recipes are posted online. To find past articles, we recommend searching by keyword to see if the article or recipe you desire is posted online.

"Collect" is the term we use to define saving something. When you're viewing an article or a recipe, click "Collect" to add that article or recipe to "My Collections," where you can retrieve it easily later. You must be signed in to do this. If you are not signed in, you will be prompted to enter the email address and password you provided when you signed up for membership.

You can add a private, personal note to collected Whole Living articles and recipes. Once you have collected an item, you will see a "Note & Tag" button. Clicking "Note & Tag" will open a small window with Note & Tag form fields. To save your note, be sure to click the "Submit" button.
You can edit your note as few or as many times as you want. You can always see your note when you return to that article or recipe, or you can see your notes in "My Collections."
You must be signed in to add a note. You will not see a "Note & Tag" button unless you are signed in and have saved an article or recipe.
Notes are private and are viewable only to you, when you are signed in.
7. What are tags, and how do I use them?
Tags help you organize your saved stuff. They are keywords of labels that you add to articles and recipes to make it easier to find later. You can tag using words or phrases such as "perfect dinner recipe" or "at-home spa tip." When you're looking for all your "perfect dinner recipe" items, you can simply click on that tag phrase within "My Collections" and you'll see everything you've tagged as "perfect dinner recipe."
Separate tags with commas or quotation marks. You can enter the tags as: "perfect dinner recipe", "at-home spa tip." You can also enter the tags as: perfect dinner recipe, at-home spa tip. Both will yield the following tags: "perfect dinner recipe" and "at-home spa tip."
