  • Calories burned public setting

    When I switched to a public log, it allows me to alter all of the settings for public/friend/private, except Calories burned. This is set to public - there is no option to alter it.

    Can the option to set it like the others be provided?
  • I see no option for Calories burned. Are you referring to the Activity log?

    There's no such thing as the "friends" setting. It doesn't work as we cannot "friend" anyone here. It's either Public or Private, those are the two options.

    VitoVino, as far as friends go,

    Under "My pages" on left side bottom of the fitness journal:

    My Pages
    My Public Settings
    My Public Journal
    My Friends
    My Inbox

    Select "My Friends"

    Fitness Friends
    This is the list of your Fitness Friends. Your friends can have special access to view your online fitness journal. To change what your friends can and cannot see, use your public settings page.

    You can make someone a friend by seaching for them
    and sending them a friend request (top left).

    VitoVino
    Fitness Journal
    You have requested to be this user's friend and are awaiting a response.

    Regarding my problem, to recreate it:
    1. Go to your profile page
    2. Select public settings page link near the bottom
    3. See the options:

    Food Log

    Private
    Only My Friends
    Publicly Viewable

    This setting controls who can see your food log and reports about the foods you eat.

    Activity Log
    Private
    Only My Friends
    Publicly Viewable

    This setting controls who can see your activity log and reports about the foods you eat. In order for users to see how many calories you burn, you must
    make your weight public.

    Etc, Etc, Etc.

    However there is no option for calories burned.

    Whe you go to the public journal:

    Calories Eaten

    Your food log can be viewed only by your friends. Other people can not view this item. To change who can view this item click here.

    Calories Burned

    Calories Burned: 2,423

    When you click "here" there is no option to change that setting.

    Whether friends works fully, lets test it. Look at my public journal before and after accepting my friend request and let me know if there is a difference.

    Thanks!

    I could never figure out how to add a friend. Thanks. I'll have to try it.

    Under "My Fitness Journal" aka my food log, I scroll down and don't see anything called "My Pages" on the left. All I see is "View My Public Settings" and "Check out FitDay PC". Am I missing something??

    Okay I found it: Profile>Public Settings Page>My Friends. Okay, I see now.This should be easier than what it is.

    The Problem seems to be that you can't even "find" the member unless they have their journal public. I searched for a few and they never came up. Vito came up, but that's probably b/c his is set to public.

    You're right. It's the public settings page not the public journal. My mistake.

    It should find anyone really. You can't search for anyone without knowing their name so it's not like the name is hidden in the forum. The setting should just control whether you see anything personal after you find them.

    In most cases the person would go public if they want to be contacted so probably a moot point though.

    I don't know what happens on the receiver's end. Can you send me a request and we'll see; I'll send you one.

    Thanks,
    FIN


    P.S. And I agree it could be easier.

    Edit: I tried sending you a request but you're private, lol. Can you send me? Thx.
  • Great job, FutureizNow. I stand corrected. To say the process to add friends is complicated is an understatement. But I managed to add you as a friend, and I sent a friend request to Mike.
  • FIN, I can see your Calories burned on your page.
  • Quote: FIN, I can see your Calories burned on your page.
    Is that all you can see now? I see you on my friend page now, so you should be able to see everything.

    The calories burned is set to "public" as opposed to "friends only" due to the bug I mentioned initially, so I'd expect you could see that. Can you see the rest of it now as well? That is the question.

    I'm also wondering if friendship is mutual, that is since you allowed me to add you to my friends page, will I also be added to yours, or do you have
    to request that I be added?
  • No, I can see everything. Food eaten, activity, calories eaten, calories burned, custom measurements, body measurements, mood, weight change, and beer consumed. Wait, beer consumed??!

    The bugaboo is that a person's journal (I suppose at least ONE part of it) must be PUBLIC FIRST, so the journal can be searched for in the search box so that a friend request can be made. Here's what happens when a person's journal is set to private:




    Great question. Once I accepted you as friends, it became mutual, as your name appears on my Friends list.
