How "View All" Works:

This is the default filtering method for the site. Basically, you're rolling with no categorical filter. If it's posted to the site and approved, you're going to see it.

How "View Links in a Category" Works:

Ok, we're going to try to simplify this for you. Ready? Ok, here we go. This will allow you to view links posted with a particular category applied to it. If you choose to view the links "Cats" any links attached to that category will be shown to you while links that don't have that category attached will be hidden. Mind blowing, no?

View Links We Think You Would Like:


This filter is not available to anonymous users. Login, register or just sit back and enjoy the lack of features that being anonymous affords.

How "Favorites" Works:

As you use the website, Schwim tracks your every move, learning what your likes and dislikes are. Once we know enough about you, you will be able to select this option. Once selected, you will only see links related to categories that you have historically gotten warm fuzzies from. You can help enable this feature by viewing, voting on and submitting links.

This filter is not available to anonymous users. Login, register or just sit back and enjoy the lack of features that being anonymous affords.

How "Unread" Works:

This filter works in conjunction with All, Categories or Favorites. Once you view a link, it won't show up in the list while this filter is active. This is quite handy for catching up on links that have been posted since you last checked them out.
