Bookmarking a specific post inside a thread

Post by Ben Mathew » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:38 am

I am often interested in bookmarking a particularly informative post. So far I have been bookmarking the thread the post is in, but obviously threads can get pretty long and it's hard to go back and find the specific post I was interested in.

Is there a way to bookmark a specific post that interests you? If not, can that feature be added?

Thanks. Using my browser bookmarks will work as long as I'm on my main computer. I was hoping there would be a solution inside the forum software itself.
