View/comment count

What happened to the view and/or comment count ? I liked to use them for recipe searches and now they're not visible.

You can still sort search results according to view and comment counts. View counts will no longer be displayed, but not sure about comment counts.

This will probably be my last subscription to this site as the view count was one of my favorite features. I think you should consider showing it again. All in all I like the tools on this site but I found it much easier to search for a recipe I would like to try with it. Just my opinion :-(

Comment counts are featured in the lists again. Since view counts reflect the number of times web crawlers, bots and spiders index the site, they are misleading. While recipe lists can still be sorted by views, the actual number is not displayed. But, I understand your dissatisfaction and am sorry to see you go. :cry:
