Request: Thread bookmarking

Request: Thread bookmarking
June 14, 2004 08:38PM
How about having something in the 'options' field below a thread to allow users to add that thread to a list, so that they can come back to it later, i.e. 'bookmark this thread' or something like that. Perhaps you could do something in the CC like the 'subscribed threads' page, which lists the threads you've bookmarked, with the subject and a link to it.

Any thoughts?

A simple javascript code would work. You could just write • (Script here) with "Bookmark this Post" for the text hyperlink. The javascript for bookmarking a page is easy to find, just do a search on google.com for bookmark javascript. I'd provide you with one, but for some reason, I get a script error with each and every Javascript bookmark example I try.

Yep that would work, but I really meant an internal method, rather than adding it to your favourites in your browser. Instead, when you bookmark a thread, it gets listed on a page in the CC (much like the 'subscribed threads' page) with info like -

Forum: Subject: Last reply:

a checkbox to unbookmark, etc...

and you can link back to it from there.

I don't see much use for it.
you already have the same functionality with the bookmarks in your browser.

So, you can have a look at the test forum.

I have just commited my changes to a patch submitted by Arthur Louie. I merged Bookmarked threads and Subscribed threads into one thing called Followed Threads.

No, I'm talking about on THIS SITE. I can't get into the test forum. Look at the URLs in the example I gave.

It seems to work in Opera though, but 86.84 % (42173) of our users use Internet Explorer.
