Maybe this is already built in and I don't know how to use it?

As I'm going through articles I like to save some posts because they have very good information, so I hit the "like" button.

Also, I like to "like" someone's post because I agree with with, or for whatever reason, I just want to show that I support their answer, even if I don't want to save their post. Maybe it's a funny post with nothing scientific. But I still want to like it.

Maybe it's a good idea to do be able to have the option to do both or either or neither? Maybe it's not, I don't know? Just a suggestion, that I would really like and maybe others would, too?

"Like a post" and "save a post" should be separate? Or a filter can be added. So you can do both or either or neither?
Or maybe hit the "like" button twice, to categorize as a special post that goes to the top of "like" query in your profile. And the single "likes" stay on the bottom half of the query...

Maybe I'm not saying it the best, but you get the idea?

Maybe it would increase the cost of the servers to support the new feature, however... idk just throwing it out there.
Thanks for reading.

There is a feature to "bookmark" a page on the site so you can return to it later. The little gray icon next to the acorn icon (I think it's supposed to be a book) does this. All your bookmarked pages are listed in a section on your profile page. You can make them to you available from any page at the site by going to your preferences and selecting "Managing your custom menu bar" and adding the link address there. I would be happy to explain if any of this is not clear. The bookmark feature is entirely separate from the thumbs up and acorn features.

Just wondering SoulRiver009, are you trying to save the link address or the content (text) and pictures in the webpage?

Just a single post.
I guess you could say I am archiving the site through the "like" button.

With web pages that I like I copy url and add it to my notes in my phone.

But like I said, I just want to archive a single post, pics included. So I don't have to weed through a lot of other comments that are jokes, or about off topic things.

I just save the posts with the crucial info. It would be cool if there was a way to start and organize your own personal archive. But from the looks of things, I might be the only one doing this lol. There's a lot of information on this website. Some articles are like 5 pages long, and only a few posts are things I would like to archive. I don't want to have to save 5 urls because there is a 1 post that I "like" on each page. And then I have to scroll and weed through everything a second time. Which I think is what the bookmark feature does. So that's not really what I'm talking about.

That's ok! On to plan B!

The bookmark feature only saves the actual post that you clicked on, not the page or the thread (which can still be clicked to from there). I do not know if the bookmarked posts can be organized afterwards.

That's ok I plan to go through my "likes" later on, and organize it and categorize it myself.

Got it. I'm trying the bookmark feature right now. Hopefully that's what o was looking for, *fingers crossed*

Don't forget to use the "Notes" column to organize your bookmarks alphabetically to make them easy to find again. Here is how I do it:
