    I know it can be done I just cannot find where it tells us how.
    There are getting to be too many posts listed on my post page to be able to find any particular post I am looking for.
    I was hoping to keep the posts on informative strings and eliminate the "friendly" responses to make it easier to find information.
    Is there a place where I can store the informative strings I post to for future reference ?

    Thank You

    You might want to try making a new folder under favorites on your computer, then click on the threads that you want, and move them to favorites to the separate folder.

    If you click on the timestamp of a post you find helpful (located above the poster's username, such as --> Today 10:21 am) the URL (web address) at the top of your web browser will change to a link to that particular post. You could make a new bookmarks folder in your web browser for "Helpful Chicken Posts" or something like that, then save the bookmarks to the posts you find helpful. When you save a bookmark, you can usually add a description of what the link is about, so you could type something in like, "Building an Incubator" or "Where to find DE" so that you can go directly to the information you need.

    Another option would be to create a file in Microsoft Word for chicken information, and copy and paste in things that you want to remember. Some people on BYC do this.
