    Hey Everybody! We need your help.

    We just made some changes to the coop index pages to get ready for adding the next wave of chicken coops. We need to make sure that the thumbnails are working properly. Here's what we need you to do:

    1. Go to the coops section of the site: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coops
    2. Click on one of the sub-indexes by size (small, medium, large)
    3. Randomly click on a coop thumbnail (any one, it doesn't matter)
    4. Check to see if the coop thumbnail you clicked on matches the page you end up looking at and that the page loads correctly.
    5. Go back to the index and scroll down the page and try another one
    6. Do that until you get bored [​IMG]

    Report back here with something like:

    "I clicked on 8 coops and they all worked fine!"

    or

    "I clicked on the thumbnail for the coop <coop name> and the link didn't work, I got an error, etc."


    Have fun!!

    I've done a ton of clicking myself and I think they look pretty good too!

    Ok, now onto the process of manually adding like 100 new coops (I'll see you all in a few weeks) [​IMG] [​IMG]

    In waterers and feeders, all worked well, but I noticed a couple things.
    Most of the thumbnails have the same titles as the pages they link to, which avoids confusion. But in a couple of cases, while the thumb links to the correct page, the page title doesn't match the thumbnail title, which is a bit confusing.

    The link to one thumbnail is labeled "LRG's Coop" but the page title is "My Homemade Chicken Feeder".
    The thumbnail labeled "mikki717's coop" leads to a page titled "My automatic waterer".
    "Joe 12 pack's coop" leads to "How do you make a chicken feeder in less than 60 seconds for free?"

    (I only made it through the first four rows, but the others in those rows are clear links).
