    particular topics and/or feeds? I'm not sure of the terminology, but for example, I'm in Texas would like to follow the Texas feed. Is there a way to mark this somehow so I couldn't have to scroll thru all the pages? (It just so happens that Texas is only on the second page:). I also follow the Maran feed (there are several) and the EE and Olive-Egger feeds; however, what if the particular thread was on page 25 of page 50? Not sure I'm stating my question clearly, so please let me know if I'm not making sense.

    You can "subscribe" to threads. The option is at the bottom of the page.

    I don't know about bookmarking, but you can subscribe to a thread and get notices when someone has posted to it. The subscription link is on the bottom left of the post.

    That's what I use. You can subscribe when a post is open without posting, or while you're posting. Then on either the Index or Recent Posts pages, lower left, you can click "show subscribed topics." I never look at the email notifications except to clean out the email.

    Subscribe to a thread at the bottom left of a page in that thread. When you come back the next time, click on show your subscribed topics at the bottom left of the Index or Recent Posts page. Then, rather than have to read it all again, click on show new posts. It is a great feature, goes to where you last were in that thread!

    If I want to keep a particular bit of info, I copy and paste to a Word document, all sorted into various files in My Documents. That way, if a thread disappears, I still have the info.

    Hope that helps, it's clear as mud! [​IMG]

    Awesome idea ranchhand. Thanks all! You'd think since I worked in front of a computer all day, I'd know all this stuff, but I'm afraid my 5 year old knows more than I do!
