    Lightbulb Help finding recipes on the forum

    I was going to post a recipe on the forum but after browsing to the appropriate sub-forum I realised that there was nothing to differentiate the recipes in that section from general discussion threads.

    Obviously my recipe is far too lovely to be lost in the general din of forum chatter, so I was thinking perhaps the prefix function of vbulletin could be used to mark recipes and make them searchable?

    I could add a recipe prefix, or we could use tags. Or even move all recipes to one Recipe-subforum. What's the best solution?

    Tags are too subtle imho but the other two are both good.

    If prefixes were used there could be a few, [Recipe - Starter] [Recipe - Main][Recipe - Dessert][Recipe - Side] etc?

    Or perhaps use both a subforum and prefixes.

    More feedback is welcome.... anyone else?

    If the change should be useful and should make sense, all the existing recipe threads would have to be updated with prefixes, and in order to do that correctly, especially with the three levels, it would take some time. But adding a simple prefix would be easy.
