How to creat a Swap Page.

  1. Penny Hen
    A lot of us have spent hours trying to figure this out only to be finally cued in and then said, "There needs to be a page about this. I would have never figured it out!"

    So here is the instructions:

    Go to the "Member Pages" page

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/0/Member_Pages

    and click the button on the left side of the screen - it is blue - that says "add a member page".

    Title it "So-N-so's Swap Page".

    Then start listing and adding pictures of all your stuff.

    Copy and paste the link in the footer of your posts but still post it in the text when you are swapping because if someone is following the swap on a smart phone instead of a computer they can't see the footer information.

    Happy Swapping!

    This page still comes up even with the title misspelled. Thank you so much for creating this article! Very helpful!

    Arggghh! It won't let me edit the Title! I am going to be annoyed if I have to take it down and put it up again to fix that!

    Yeah that's what happens when a dyslexic person spells late at night! ;)

    Thanks, very helpful. I don't think I would have got it without reading this. I agree with Whittni, just in case it's used as a frequent guide.

    Check your title's spelling in cases this is used as a frequent guide.
