Return to a favorite thread
 
Question: Is "Subscribe to this Thread" under the Thread Tools pulldown similar to "Add to Favorites" in a web browser.
Will this build a list of threads under "Quick Links" -> "Suscribed Threads" so I can easily return to it in the future instead of searching for it again?

That's a really good question! :thumb:
If I want to find a thread that I had posted in: I just open up my profile, and bring up the list of all of my posts and/pr threads... :hide:

My request is a little different.

I want to return to a thread I have read and know I may want to return to it in the future.

These are threads I have not created or responded to.

I don't know of any list of your favorite or subscribed threads that you can access. When you subscribe to a thread you will get email notifications when someone posts in that thread.

Yup: that's what happens...
If :you like getting emails... :rolleyes:

Not sure if its just me or do other users come across threads that they would like to return to? Maybe future upgrades, a radio modification, plumbing, chassis changes or who knows what catches your eye in a thread. Some contributors are very technical with the information they provide and finding that info later is sometimes difficult.

Maybe this question should rise to the admin level to see if they may have a solution? (not sure how to do that)

Well you always can create a folder/menu in the browser and just bookmark important threads in that folder (a folder so that after a while they won't overwhelm your bookmarks).

In a way I implied that in my original post. Was hoping for a solution in the forum itself. It would be handy if you visit different forums and can save pertinent threads so you can access them later.

I agree that is the solution for now. Add a thread to a personal bookmark folder.

Thanks JamieGeek

I use Tapatalk, a free app for phone/tablet. There’s a check box on each thread to subscribe, then a “subscribed” section to read what you’ve subscribed. No emails.

Thanks, looks like it only works on mobile devices. I do all my forum visits on a laptop. Too bad they don't support them.
