    New site looks awesome. Love how easy it is to find things. Keep on with your awesome work (and we’re thankful for all you do!!!)

    Wasn’t sure if you cross browser checked though, JIC…works wonderfully in Firefox, not so much in IE8, just in case it matters.

      Thanks Kati. IE8 is a dinosaur and with only a 3% market share so I chose not to worry too much about it. Much appreciate the feedback though.

    congrats on the new site and I don’t blame you for the sponsorship. Gluten Dude’s cousin is only a year and change away from college and I’m willing to wear clothes like a NASCAR racer to help pay. Hope to see you soon

    Thank you DUDE! Look forward to all you have to offer, looks good. I want to know more about GF beers. I am a 46 year old, Mom of two grown sons, and I miss having a decent beer when my boys come over for the games ( and food, they don’t even know it is all GF). I Love beer, but I hate the GF beer I have tried. Thank you and can’t wait to try some of Mrs. Dudes recipes, prayers for her too. Blessings and beer, what else is there? :)

      Sharla – yeah agreed. GF beer is kinda blah – Redbridge is what I mostly drink (when I drink beer). But Woodchuck Cider is my go-too beverage these days.

    Really love the new site… you’d think a professional did it! Well laid out, great graphics, easy to find… and always like to get coupons from tried and true companies.

    Although I have never tested positive for celiac, my 8 year old was diagnosed in kindergarten. I can not express enough thanks for everything you do. Most days we go about our GF lives just fine but occasionally I just wish (selfishly) that we didn’t have to worry so much. That is when the humor of your website is so helpful. Thanks again for all the hard work, the site looks great! God Bless you & your family.

    Gluten Dude, you’re one of the few who can safely and confidently state “Mission Accomplished.”

    Your new site is highly organized and user friendly, and it will undoubtedly garner legions of new, avid fans.

    Congratulations on a job well done!

    Gluten-Dude, thank you for investing the time and effort to put together a site that is well-organized, user-friendly, easy to follow, informative, friendly.

    All the best,

    P.S. Now that you’ve pulled one too many all-nighters putting together such a fabulous website, you can sleep a bit, right?

    The new site looks great! Much easier to navigate now. I love the drop-down menus that look like they are unfolding. Very cool. I’m happy to see ads on the site. Just knowing that you endorse the products makes me far more likely to try them and to trust those companies. I’m looking forward to the forum and other new changes to come.

    Looks great! I can’t get to it on my mobile, though. Some of it loads. Then it stops. The links in the emailed “new comment” notices don’t work, either. Had to check in from the desktop. Is it my phone? Or my phone’s browser? Do I have to get a new phone so I can still follow? lol

    This looks great, Gluten Dude! Your comment about kids in college just gave me an idea for your site – a dedicated tab or place for us to give our impressions on the gluten free college food experience. This may be particularly helpful for those who are college shopping. Although my daughter has no food restrictions, when we were looking at colleges two years ago my daughter wanted to ensure that wherever she went to school I would be able to eat on her campus.

    Keep up the great work and thanks for putting a smile on our faces while we face these struggles on a daily basis.

      That will be part of the upcoming forums. I’m building a forum for ’em.

    Love the new look. Great responsive design :) Might want to remove the console for “carouFredSel: Set a width for the items!” at some point … only things that drive other devs crazy though.

        I’ll have to open it up again at work tomorrow and see where it appears. I was surfing the new site when it appeared in my dev console.

        P.S. the name and email field asterisk for required don’t show on my android phone either … just discovered while trying to submit response. But I really do love the new site … development and code testing is just what I do and love seeing others great efforts too :-)

        Hey Dude – It looks like it is in there intentionally in the minified file and already setup to avoid x-browser issues but just in case you still want to fix the width thing … I’m using the newest Chrome browser and seeing the message pop up on your landing page from this file.

        http://glutendude.com/wp-content/themes/gdude/js/plugins.min.js?ver=1.0

        Search for ‘”Set a “+b.d.width+” for the items!”‘ if you want to see it.

    Looks great, I’m looking forward to exploring more and seeing all that you have in store for us. The forums seem like a perfect extension of all the work you do and should give us all a chance to tap into the collective wisdom and ideas of this community.
    Oh, and I love the idea of a video library for people’s celiac journeys. I’m interested in participating if you go forward with it – how would I be able get involved?

    LOVE your new site. worth the aggravation you endured– works fine on IE7 with Chrome no problem at all. Love
    the ads too.. and I have to say your sense of humor comes across loud and strong, the best in the business. Thank you
    for that humor as it brightens the darkest of days and the most ornery of circumstances.

    Excellent job! Worth those sleepless nights to give your fans the best experience! And you do have devoted fans! Amazing the way your sense of humor comes through to brighten the darkest of days and the most ornery of circumstances. You manage to make us laugh and calm the angriest of voices. I’ve stopped reading a lot of other
    blogs because yours is so darn good… keep it up! Can’t wait to check out those ads..

      Still can’t get the site on my Droid, and now Chrome on the mobile keeps freezing at your site, and I can’t read all the comments at replies. The links in email notifications of new comments at the blog are useless because I can’t use Chrome for emailed links. I wish a techie could inform me of wth is going on with this. Love the site, but not the fact that I can’t visit from the mobile anymore. OK. Moving on.

    Been reading the site for two years since I first got diagnosed and it is amazing to see how far it has come!
    I think it would be great to have a directory to good GF recipes/other food blogs, especially for those of us who have multiple allergies and are on a strict budget (I have celiac and have gone vegan to help my body heal, in addition to trying to go refined sugar free. It can be a challenge when you’re a college student!)
