    I've tried to find instructions on how to add an article (used to be "new page") to my profile, no dice. And I don't see a button for it on the new set up.....sorry to be a bother but I know there a hordes of people out there waiting to hear what I have to say about my chicken doings! :) I have several article that show up on my profile and I can add to the article but I'd like to post new articles with new titles. Thanks!

    You can paste the url of one article into the "my coop" box in your profile, bottom of the page under community profile. I would think you could put links to others in your sig line, or even in the articles.

    In the Learning Center you choose the section you want your article to be in (Coop Designs, Member Pages, My Chickens, Laws, or Recipes) and on the left there is a list of new pages, recent pages, and recently edited pages. Above those is a link that says "Add a..." whatever section you're in. Click that and you can create a new article.

    I think the article has to be approved to get into the main Learning Center. There's no link to create a new page in there.
