How Do We Track or Mark a Favourite?

I frequently see a post I like and want to mark or save to revisit in future. How can that be accomplished?
E.g. Instructions, travel tips, repair notes etc.

If somebody knows that, how do I print a post, without printing the entire thread? I guess I have to copy and paste to Word or something.
Wish I could help you Don, but I'm only a moderator, and only in moderation.

One way with Windows is to highlight (or paint) the area you want to be printed. Then on the print menu, check the Select button which will only print the highlighted area.

I'm on a Mac, but I do have Word for Mac.
Maybe?

Right click on the post number link at the top right of the post - your post is marked #1 - select add to favorites from the menu items - this works on internet explorer in windows.

OR, if you have a spreadsheet application like Excel... copy the URL then paste into one column, type a title that will remind you what you want to remember in the next column. You can sort Excel, so all the camping stuff you could put "Camping" as the first word of the title.

I have a database of over 400 records from all over the web. Waaay to many to bookmark in the browser. YMMV

I don't know... 400 bookmarks isn't too bad if you categorize your links and sort them into different folders by category.

On the other hand, it's easier to do key word searches in excel than in your browser bookmark manager.

On the other other hand, I used to keep links this way and often had problems with links getting stale -- I'd go back to look for something and the link wouldn't work any more. For a while I used to print web pages to PDF to get around this problem, but that doesn't work so well in forums where new information shows up.

Today, google is my friend. I don't try to keep a list of links any more -- I just search new every time a question comes up.

I use Evernote. (Evernote | Remember everything with Evernote, Skitch and our other great apps.)

It saves what I select, automatically stores the source url, and (most importantly) allows full text search and will even search the text in photographs.

Under "Thread Tools" (just above where your first post is), is where you can subscribe to the current thread. When you want to review the thread again, go into "User CP" & you will see the thread.
Or, as has been mentioned, just copy & paste into a word program.

I second the use of Evernote, great way to track things. A free app that has a free iPhone and iPad plus Android choice. I added a Windows desktop version, also free. It all syncs to the cloud and if using mobile devices requires a data or wifi connection.

Last year on a trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons I figured I would not have access to either so I subscribed for one month, cost $5 and allowed me to save everything on my phone. Worked great as I had all my trip notes with me. I will do the same in another month on a two week trip to Europe.

I do not work for Evernote but certainly am an advocate of their free offerings. Check them out.
