    QuickAdd hasn't been working properly for weeks. It just says "saving" forever. If you exit that page, it turns out the calories did get added. (It's not my computer or browser as this happens at work and at home.)

    Have also had various errors on the website like the main page not loading (at all), exercise calories getting added wrong like 3 calories for 30 minutes of kickboxing even when the right number was displayed when I checked the box to add the exercise, etc.

    Hey all - confirming the issues from yesterday with newsfeed and server errors was temporarily fixed and started reoccurring overnight. We are looking into it and will post updates here:

    I found this message using another search engine for MFP. Hopefully, they get things working again. Thought you all may want to see this. It was posted at 1:40 on 12/22/19. It looks like MFP is aware of the problem.

    To be fair to the programmers, most sites shut down completely when making updates. They are obviously attempting to keep some functions up and running while making changes. And working during the holidays to be ready for the new year.

    I'm not sure about this. The site has always been incredibly buggy. I doubt this was planned. The newsfeed disappeared for literally weeks earlier this year. They have a "the site is down for maintenance" thing that the could throw up if it was that. But I think it's just things breaking, like normal. Could be or could not be related to the implementation of badges.

    I can't access my food diary at all. Same yesterday, though it did come back a couple of hours later.

    My info on MFP on my iPhone and iPad aren’t synching. I’ve been using the app on both for over five years and this is quite unusual.

    MFP's technical problems are waaaaaaay beyond "glitch" at this point.

    Feed is down again on both the mobile app and the computer site. SMH, they seriously just can't get it together! HOWEVER, you can still log food, and on the computer app you can add exercise... but once you've added, you can't go back later and add another exercise, it just gives error messages. The exercise thing has been driving me nuts for WEEKS now, but the feed just went down again this morning. SO glad I never paid for this app!

    Ugh, that "can't log second exercise" issue was driving me crazy last year but I thought it was finally fixed :s

    I log my exercise like today for example. I logged 700 or so cal for spinning and weight listing and it now says 35 cals? I am just gonna ride this out and hope it corrects itself.

    MFP has been really glitchy for me this week. It keeps telling me I haven't logged meals when in fact I have. It also keeps resetting my macro targets which is very annoying.
