Dear Moderators,

Many interesting topics are discussed everyday and is there any way to flag/mark a topic for future reference? As of now am searching with few keywords but am finding it difficult.

your browser has bookmarks (or favorites - or something). that is where you should mark these tidbits.

you could also obtain a free version of a pdf generator and then store the webpages (containing your topic) as a pdf on your pc.

why do you not think of a solution yourself instead of expecting someone else to provide a solution to your problem.

searching is a pain because somany people do not bother to use meaningful topics.

I just wanted to know if there are any options in this forum to mark/flag a topic. That is why it was addressed to the moderators.

I had also thought of all these generic ways.

Hello,

No. I believe this would only be extra work for site admin and would add unnecessary overhead to the forum.

It is far too easy to mark some link as a "favorite". You might also create a reference document on your system and put the link as well as part of the topic in it.

How did you try to view the Bookmarks? And in which browser?

Please try to login as "CICS Guy" again and try to "View Bookmarked Topics" from the Forum index. Please update me with the result.
