@dave would it be possible to make it, were we could change the Thread and post titles in our star page list. The title does not always reflect the reason we saved the page.
Example: I saved a page "Happy New Year!" because it contained a list of upcoming plant weeks. But the title does not tell me that. I would like to be able to rename them in a way that would help us find what we are looking for.

I'm so glad you asked this question. I would love that too.

I have one starred about saving caladiums but the title is nothing like that.

another vote for that capability Thumbs up

If we could even put a note beside it, to remind ourselves why we saved it, rather than changing the title (which might be a database field)

Excellent thought! I'll admit to being mightily confused by why I starred some, too. Usually I can find what I'm looking for by doing a search, but not always.

I click on each one to figure out why I saved it. It would be a great time saver if would could rename or tag them some how.

Me too. I just click and open them and read them looking for whatever it was. Sure would be nice if there was a clue before opening.

And/or the ability to make categories or lists of starred pages.

That might also tempt people to publish articles like "my top 20 favorite posts (or threads) about "X". That would probably attract enough replies to generate a public top 50.

Pretty soon we'd have a subject index for the whole site.

I'll definitely do something. At a minimum, I will make it so you can add a description to your starred items.
