Show recently visited contentpages in a scrollable content strip (see image below)
The recently viewed icon in the top toolbar brings up a list of content you recently viewed. This is a great way of moving between pieces of content without having to search each time.
CooklyBookly lets authors publish different types of content.
Recipes : beautifully and individually styled recipes.
Techniques : content designed to explain culinary techniques and often incorporating videos.
Blogposts : opinion pieces and news.
Collections : digital cookbooks, which can be published and shared or used privately as personal reference books.
Finding content is simple using the search box at the top of the page. You can search by:
Key term or ingredient - e.g. ‘chicken’
Username / handle - e.g. @nathanoutlaw
Hashtag - e.g. #healthy
You can create your own recipes, collections, videos, techniques and blog posts once you have created a free user account. To do this, click Login in the top right of the menu bar then click Sign Up.

How recipes work
Recipes don't just look beautiful, they're also really interactive. You can do the following when viewing a CooklyBookly recipe.
Scaling: by adjusting the number field, all the ingredients will automatically scale.
Unit conversion: wherever you see a unit of measurement (weights, volumes, temperatures) you can click on the number to switch between US and Metric unit systems. You can also press the slider button to do the same.
Add to collections: click on the books icon in the floating toolbar on the right of the page to add a piece of content to any of your collections.
Popup notes - a recipe author can make notes against an ingredient or the recipe as a whole. You can click on icons that appear to bring up these notes. This keeps the recipe content nice and light for normal reading but allows these extra details to be brought up on demand.
