    Default How to save great stuff?

    I have been using the forum for awhile, but I don't think I'm using it as effectively as I could. When I find tips that are very helpful to me, how can I save the posts so I can find easily in the future.

    I think this feature must exist because I see others inserting links to older posts to bring back a topic for someone else's use.

    In the recent months, I have found tons of useful tips and I want to hold onto them electronically (not as printed sheets). Thanks for any help. I did look at the FAQ, but did not find an answer.

    Above this thread to the right side, you'll see a "Thread Tools" link. if you click on it, you will see subscribe to this thread. Above that almost at the top of the page is "My Profile" After clicking on that you'll find a "Subscriptions" tab that shows all of your subscribed threads.

    Hi

    I maintain an excel spread sheet. I have 3 tabs set up for different general subjects. For anything that interests me, I put in my own description and then paste in the hyperlink to the forum post or website, whatever in the adjoining cell. In my 18 months of lurking I have collected a couple hundred links to, as you know all kinds of things. A person could use Word or ? and do the same thing. I didn’t see collecting favoites in a browser being powerful enough to do it.
    Maybe something like this would work for you.

    I just use a google search to find the old topics I post up in reply.

    Browser bookmarks.

    Organize them into folders or just change the description of the bookmard to reflect the said post thread. If you click on the post # in the upper right corner, it will change the address (that you would bookmark) to reflect that specific post. After that, just browse your saved bookmarks to find the thread/post you're looking for. You can also export your bookmarks to be imported into another browser on a different PC or in case of data loss for whatever reason.

    I love Evernote. Easy to use, screenclipper, make as many divisions of knowledge and subject as you wish.
