    Question Bookmark feature

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by cydney, Sep 30, 2016.

    Is there a way to bookmark here in this forum?

    Not as far as I know. :(
    I believe the best way would be to use your browser's built-in bookmark feature (if there is one), or save the links manually in a document.

    You can also use 'watch threads'. The threads are set by default to be to be tagged as watched if you comment in them.

    Home Page>What's New>Watched Threads

    Bonus is this works across multiple devices/browsers*
    Downside; if you're not partaking it'll put the crimpers on it (but it's simple enough to just nudge in with a comment such as 'liking this thread :)') .

    Another downside is that, if you're like me, your "watch list" will fill up with hundreds of threads. ;)

    Also, what do you mean by "if you're not partaking it'll put the crimpers on it"?

    Oh just that the threads are auto-marked as being watched once you engage in the conversation.

    Personally, I, too, would recommend using your browser's bookmarking feature - though I realize that can be an annoyance as far as syncing devices and using other browsers.

    At one point we did have a bookmark functionality installed, but I don't believe it was used much.

    Thanks @Daniel . I don't mind using that feature. I used to want to bookmark a lot of stuff but not so much anymore.
