    BYC is an amazing place where peeps come to talk chicken but end up making great friends and enjoy hanging out. This is one of the reasons BYC is such a wonderful and special place and why so many people join every day and stick around.

    Since the very beginning of the BYC Forum we've had a page that allows you to see all the recent posts / topics on the forum:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/search.php?action=show_24h

    We've receive a LOT of requests from many peeps that they would also like the option to have direct access to just the poultry related topics on BYC.

    So, after a bit of programming we created a new "Filtered Recent Posts" list which has the "Social" and "Buy Sell Auction" topics filtered out:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/search2.php?action=show_24h

    The main "Recent Posts" list will remain the same, but the list above will be available for you to access and bookmark if you prefer.

    Thanks to those who provided feedback and ideas for this new feature and for those who support new developments like this through BYC Store purchases and supporting our sponsors.

    Nice! This is helpful!

    I do wish we could filter it completely by section (for example, I personally would like to be able to see the recent posts with all sections except Meat Birds and Games displayed), but this is a good start. Thank you! [​IMG]

    Would it be possible to have a link to the "filtered recent posts" on the recent posts page?

    For now we're going to keep this link separate from the other links to help avoid confusion. We've linked to it from the FAQ's, so if you ever loose it, you can find it there. [​IMG]
     
  7. thank you. I'd pretty much quit coming here because there was more social stuff than chicken stuff.
    This should make everyone happy.
