Default Is there a "favorites" tool on here?

There are some threads I want to bookmark for future reference, but I don't want to add it to Firefox bookmarks. I've seen some forums that have a "favorite" or "archive" button so that you can add whatever threads you want to it.

The benefit of this is that it is linked to your profile so that no matter what computer I'm at, I can easily find a particular thread. In other words, if I bookmark a thread in Firefox at work, then go home, there is no way to find which threads I bookmarked.

I could use the search function to find a thread, but some items have dozens and dozens of threads (such as the router skis) and wading through all of the threads to find a particular one can be a bit time-consuming.

Is there already a function for this that I am missing or does anybody else believe this a useful function worth adding to this forum?

Hi Paulo,

At the top of the thread you twill see a tab marked "Thread Tools". Within that tab you will find "Subscribe to This Thread". This will bookmark the thread as you requested.

To pull up the threads you are subscribed to go to the "Account Settings" tab and then look for "List Subscriptions".

Shout if you need any more help.

Thanks for your help Bob.

I've seen those subscribed threads, but I thought those were only for threads one posts in.
