    Default Hoping someone can help me.....

    Okay.....see if I can explain this clearly.......

    I have some threads in my favorites that I now want to put in a favorites folder.
    (recipes, tips, etc.)

    Question number 1 ----how do I do that?

    I can't even FIND my folders ---get to them---and I know I have set them up.

    Question number 2: How do I get BACK to my folders at any time/later date?

    Hope this makes sense.........and that you can help.

    TIA!!

    I tried to do this in the beginning and couldn't figure any of it out. I had saved so many threads I wanted to go back to. Good question

    Okay...........IF it is in the subscriptions...........go to that page....mark the box on the right side...........then at the bottom of the list....where the box is...........mark WHERE you want them to go (which folder, deleted, etc)..........then click go.

    IF you want to do folders......THAT is on the left..........click edit folders (under subscriptions I think) and this will let you set them up....rename, etc.

    After THAT.............I am lost..........

    Click on your UserCP
    then "User control panel"
    In the left hand column you will see a heading of "Subscribed Threads"
    Click on the "list subscriptions" under that heading. Takes you to another window.
    It should list the threads you have subscribed to.
    Right above that is a drop down menu where you can see your other folders.

    Thats how you find them.

    From snooping around and adding some favorites I don't think you can move things from your favorites. The only thing you can do is delete them from your favorites.
    BUT, before you do that, subscribe to the thread so it will go into your subscriptions. There, you can create new folders such as "recipes", "witty things Russ has said", etc etc etc.

    Even as a moderator I see no way to move favorite threads to subscriptions but, maybe I missed something.

    thanks Russ!

    And I just learned..........that once in the subs. and moved to a folder...........DO NOT DELETE them from the subs.......they have to stay there..........a 'copy' d/n go in the folder for a duplicate.

    Just lost some stuff.........AARRRGGHH!!!

    Favorites are different than subscriptions. You can move them between each other. If you do subscribe and want to get email alerts, make sure you are using a valid email address so that you are notified. Many folks have changed emails and still have an old email and they are getting emails sent to the void!

    This looks like a good opportunity to do a tutorial.
    I don't use subscriptions or favorites. So let me go to the drawing board on these.

    THANK GABE! Yes, PLEASE do the tutorial.

    I know the subs. and favorites are different.....and there in lies the problem.

    I don't want any email alerts but I will put a recipe or informational post into my favorites -----(which you go to automatically when you click on CP-then user control panel)............but THEN I can't get them into a folder.

    They have to be in the subscriptions for me to get them into a folder...........and until I post AGAIN in them......they won't go into subs.


    Got the 'subscriptions to folder thing' figured out.........

    THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT............I was trying to clear out some favorites..................but wanted to save the info.

    I meant you can't in my post. Sorry. I will do a tutorial.

    If you want to manage bookmarks/favorites I will check to see if I can do something about that in the forums...
