Bookmarking posts

Postby Paul » Mon May 21, 2012 5:08 pm

Would it be possible to implement a system to bookmark a post (or a thread) that we like so we can go back to re-read it? For example there are several worth re-reading in the now 1000 post long Dzogchen and Buddhism but finding them is a bit of a nightmare.
This nature of mind is spontaneously present.
That spontaneity I was told is the dakini aspect.

Hi Paul,

At the bottom left, at the end of every thread, there is a "bookmark topic" option. Can you see this?

I don't know of a way to bookmark specific posts but if you know who wrote the ones which interest you, you could go to their profile, search their posts and copy them and paste into Word for later perusal.

Hi - I'd not noticed that before. Is there anything that would allow the same thing to be done with posts? I'm guessing Blue Garuda's suggestion might be the only way.

We don't have that option for posts, but we'll try to look into it. What BG recommended is good too for making notes for oneself.

Paul, in case you didnt notice, the headline of every individual post contains a HTML link to that post, for instance here is one from another thread: viewtopic.php?f=36&t=8370#p100894 . Where the #p number at the end is the post's identifier. So for instance to save the bookmark in Mozilla Firefox you just right click on the post headline and select "Bookmark link". Or if you don't want them saved in your browser you can use e.g. Google Bookmarks or something similar that should integrate with your browser through an extension/add-on/app.
Best wishes
Lars
