We’ve had a problem here for quite some time with the interaction between the Now Smell This log in procedures and the browser caching functions. If you log in and get back to the main page and it still says “Login to comment” at the top, don’t worry, you are in fact logged in…
Now Smell This has had a long-overdue redesign. I feel I should apologize for leaving it so ugly for as long as I did, although of course I will think it looks ugly again in about a month, and some of you may not care for the way it looks even now.
General improvements: the site is now reasonably mobile responsive — it should function much, much better on mobile devices…
Hopefully the site will only be down for a few hours, but you never know. If I can, I'll have a poll loaded by early afternoon (Eastern US time), but if I can't get things working in time, apologies in advance!
We're very pleased to announce that Aleta B will be joining us as a contributor on perfume books. Her first post, a review of MJ Rose's The Book of Lost Fragrances, will appear tomorrow — do come by and welcome her to Now Smell This! You can read more about Aleta and her background on our About page.
If you have your own perfume blog and would be interested in writing a guest post (or if you've already written a guest post for us and would like to write another), just send me (robin at nstperfume dot com) a quick note with a link to your site. If you already know what you’d like to write about, mention that too, but it isn’t necessary.
And as always, we are open to general complaints & suggestions — this is as good a place to put them as any, so do comment!
Oops: and meant to add that voting for the Prix Eau Faux will be coming up on Thursday!
We are having problems with the user log ins this morning. Several users have logged in with their own user name and password, and the system has shown them as someone else.
Hopefully it will get fixed soon!
I'm closing comments on the contest until we get it sorted out, and I'll leave it open for an extra day at the end.
Update: the problem should be fixed, sorry about that!
