    There are a couple places you can create an article. If you want to make a coop page article, stop by here and click on that blue tab on the left side that says, "Add a Coop Design".....https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/2/Coops

    Or if you want to write an article about something within your flock you have learned, how to treat some disease you had in your flock or why you love chickens SO much, you can make a members page here. Just click on that blue tab that says, "Add a Member Page".....https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/0/Member_Pages

    Well, at the risk of once again impressing everyone with my stoopididity, I have a question and I did a search for the answer before I came here, I swear! I wrote an article today about our 3 week old chick, Scout, and his great adventure with frostbitten feet. In it I not only introduced him, but I also went into detail about how I treated it and how he's doing to this point. BUT, I foolishly forgot to add the word "Frostbite" anywhere in the title..[​IMG] So if someone else does a search for the same problem, they won't find the information.

    "No problem." I thought. "I'll just go back to it and edit it, then update the link in my signature. Big problem! I can edit the text and the photos, but not the title. What can I do to make sure that what Scout and I are learning (the hard way) can maybe help someone else in the future? Thanks!

    Usually you ask a Moderator and they are very happy to help you.
    Give the link and what you would like them to do.
    Good luck.

    @Blooie , did you get this worked out? We can edit article titles for you if you provide us the link and what you want the article title to be.

    One of the generous-with-time-and-skills moderators took care of it, Nifty, thank you! I sure appreciate everything all of you do!
