Dear all,

Have you ever read something on the forum that you later tried to find again... but could not?

Well, now the forum has a new Bookmark feature so that you can bookmark posts so that you can find it again easily later.

- Non-donating members can bookmark 10 posts.
- Donating members can bookmark an unlimited number of posts.

How does this work?

Under each post you will now find a "bookmark" link. It should be next to the "Report" link. Clicking it gives you the following options:

They are quite self-explanatory, so I will not get into more details.

What does this look like?

All of your bookmarks (private and public) can be found on your bookmarks-page:

Direct link would be:
https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/account/bookmarks

As an example, my bookmark page looks like this:

... you see that one of these bookmarks is private (only I can see it) and one is public.

On my profile page:
https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/members/ivar.1/
..only the Public Bookmarks are visible.

I hope this new feature will be useful in your Camino planning!!

Fantastic! I keep trying to research stuff and always fail, so this way I can mark as I read! Thank you.

PS.: a few weeks ago someone posted a beautiful picture of the Camino. I asked him if I could use it and said I would make a contribution to the forum as a way of saying thanks. I had the photo printed in a large format (20x24 inches) and framed. You can see the result below. So now not only do I have a lovely stress-buster at the office but an unlimited number of bookmarks as a donating member. Thank you Ivar and Edward.

Great feature! I'm always "watching " threads so I can go back to the ideas, suggestions, recommendations, and then end up going through dozensof posts to find that one piece of information I wanted. Not that skimming through dozens of posts isn't a good thing . . . . :p

Bookmarks are going to be a great tool . I've wasted time uselessly looking for posts I found helpful. Somehow searches don't always give you what you need.
Gracias, Ivar.

Fantastic idea and very well implemented. I have been gathering watchlists for months now in preparation. As the lists grow so does alarm at the huge task of trolling through them all to glean the relevant posts. Now I can start on this gradually. Blessed be the name of Ivar.

Good one. Trying to remember 'where that quote was' is getting more difficult . I'm off to give it a try.
Ps - Could these bookmarks become unwieldy ? Easy to delete if need be?

Thankyou Ivar

Brilliant, especially when trying to help answer a question and know there was a post 'somewhere' in a long thread.......or just wanting to read a particular post again. Thanks Ivar
