How can I save a topic to my favourites? I could do this with the old forum.

No replies. Perhaps I've not explained myself.

In the old forum you could mark a post as a favourite and then in your profile you could view your favourite posts.

Is this possible with the new forum? If so can someone tell me how?

Doesn't seem to be a feature.

You could save it to your browser.

Yeah doesn't appear that you can do that on this forum.
I have to say that I never used that feature as I just keep notifications on everything but I can see why it might be useful.

This requires a pretty big hack. According to my research it would require the creation of a special category in the database, one for every user, that would allow them storing their list of preferred posts. Since it is not something we can develop in the incoming week, because we are having a pretty tough roadmap to fulfill, I am going to mark it as feature request and put it at the bottom of my priority list.

Thanks,

Another way to this, is to click on notify on your favorite threads.
This way you can always see a list on your favorite threads in your profile under Notifications and Email.

This is almost the same feature, and this way you can have as many favorites as you like  smiley

In the end I used the notification feature but that list doesn't just contain your favourite posts. It contains much more clutter, not as focused.

Presumably I've lost my list of favourite posts from the old forum :-(

Is there any way to get a list of them so I can save them somewhere safe?

You can still access the old forum and see your favorites there.

OK. I see they're still there. Where do I find a link on the Arduino page to the old forum?

I ended up googling to access the old forum.
