    I'm finding it impossible to locate people's member pages and the only reason I can find mine is because I bookmarked it. I would have thought that clicking on a member's profile name in a forum posting would lead to a link to that member's BYC page but that doesn't appear to be the case. I'm sure there's an easy answer to this but I just can't figure it out.

    I have not found an easy way to search for them either. They are in the in the learning center section, and there is a search function but if you put in the member name, it doesn't come up with any results. That is why I put the links in my signature, because I figure if I spent time putting it together I would like people to take a look.

    Thanks Scratch... that's a step in the right direction. I added my BYC page link to my signature.

    Cool page. You have a great coop that is perfect for the normal sized yard.

    Now everyone else needs to add their BYC page or Chicken Page to their signature line!

    You can also paste its url into the "my coop" field in your profile, and it will show up as "my coop" in your postbit, below your name and avatar. The "my coop" field is in your profile under edit community profile, at the bottom.

    Hopefully this will help you find your (and other member's) pages:

    Where are “My Pages”?

    To see a list of all the pages you’ve created, or a list of pages created by another member, follow these steps:
    1. Go to your profile, or the user’s profile
    2. Scroll down to “Activity Feed”
    3. De-select “Breeds & Supplies” “Forum” & “Profile” so that only “Articles” has a green dot. This will show all your pages / articles (or those of the member you’ve selected).
    4. You should see something like this:

    Okay, I get it - you can go to another member's profile by clicking on their avatar and then search their activity feed as described. I just tried it and it worked [​IMG]

    Thank you Flockwatcher for mentioning the "My Coop" under community profile. I added that after you mentioned it but I don't think many other members know about it yet.
