    This feature allows people to save a collection of their favorite or perhaps most useful posts.
    This was a feature requested by @Oddball - he said he was having trouble losing stuff, that there was alot of good information on the forum, but no where to formally organise it.

    How?

    1. Every post displays the option to bookmark the thread on the lower right hand corner, next to the reply button. When i find a post that's meaningful to me, such as @ad fez 's thread on a DIY compressor, i look for the bookmark button and click it.

    2. Once you click on the bookmark link, a pop-up menu will appear with various options. You should give the bookmark a meaningful title. In this case i call the bookmark 'Home made compressor'.
    Tag: Useful if you expect to have many bookmarks, you can easily search for them with a keyword of your choice, in this case i choose 'compressor'.
    The bookmark has been made public, so it can be found by anyone on my profile page under the 'bookmarks' tab.
    Sticky: This post will remain at the top of the list of bookmarks.

    2.5. Quick link option: A new tab appears on the forum main menu, which allows for easy access of bookmarks and the link is the title that you create for the bookmark!

    3. If you don't yet have any 'quick link' bookmarks, then the navigation tab won't yet appear. You can instead access your bookmarks by clicking on your username at the top right of the screen and clicking on the 'your bookmarks' button.

    4. This takes you to your bookmarks section, where you can edit and delete bookmarks or even use them for quick reference. Once you click on the bookmark, you also have the option to be taken to the entire thread. bookmark3.jpg

    This little extra means that you can build up your own database of articles for quick reference. You can use the forums search function at the top right of the screen to look for meaningful posts and if you find them, then be sure to bookmark them!

    If you come across a post that you think will be useful for future access, then I would advise that you go ahead and click 'bookmark'!

    Just another way the orange airbrush forum is keeping one step ahead of the rest :sus::malicious: :p
