There was some question about the "new posts" link and functionality. One thing that might help and you could give a try:

  1. Go to the "New Posts" link: https://www.backyardherds.com/whats-new/posts/
  2. Click on the "Filters" link to the right
  3. Choose filters like "Watched Content" and/or "Threads in which you've participate"
  4. Click "Save as default"
  5. Then click "Filter"

My preference is set to see signatures, but I don’t see any. I’m using an iPhone 6S. I don’t have any other devices/computers, so this is all there is - no options. I use Safari as a browser. Any thoughts?

My phone is the same way when I view in portrait mode. Try rotating your phone 90 degrees, that works with my phone.

Welcome to the new home of BackYardHerds.com!

Long story short: After 2 years of forum software research, 6 months of software evaluation, & 1 month of neck-deep conversion testing, we're on a brand new platform!!

NOTE: If you have questions, problems, or notice a bug PLEASE start a new topic in this section with a VERY detailed subject/title and add as much information about your question / issue as possible! This will help us make sure that questions are all answered vs. all of them being jumbled into one thread!

Here are some of the things you'll want to check out:
  1. New Phrasing: On this system, "Posts" are referred to as "Messages". "Private Messages" are now called "Conversations". It takes a bit to get used to, but it makes sense with the way this software operates.
  2. Likes: You can "Like" other people's posts! They get notified when you like what they posted and it adds to their reputation.
  3. Trophies: A trophy is a goal for things like # of posts, an anniversary as a member, number of likes, etc. You can see a list of them here: http://www.backyardherds.com/help/trophies
  4. @mention: This will alert them that they were mentioned in a post. For example: @elevan , @Southern by choice , etc.
  5. Watch Forums: You can subscribe to or "watch" forum sections. Example: You may want to subscribe to theDiseases & Injuries - Goats section to get notified of new topics are posted.
  6. Draft Auto-Save: While you type, your post is automatically saved every 60 seconds. If you accidentally close the tab / window or even turn off your PC, when you come back to the thread your draft copy will be there waiting for you!
  7. Mobile Browsing: The skin / theme on this new site is "responsive"... which means no matter what size screen you're on, the page will automatically format itself to fit nicely on your device! Go open BYH on your phone or tablet and give it a try!
  8. Image Uploads: Fantastically easier and fun ways to load pics into your posts. See more details in this thread.
  9. More & Bigger Images: You can now upload bigger pictures and as many as you want! No more image upload limitations!
Suggestion: use the official new terminology mentioned in #1 in #2. Posts -> messages
