Ability to save individual posts?

Post by budo » Sun Aug 05, 2018 7:52 pm

Is there a way to save individual posts? Not the whole threads, just the individual posts. It would be great if I could open up a "my saved posts" page and scroll through them. I have a lot of browser bookmarks but over time they get cluttered, or lost, etc..

I know you can subscribe to threads, but that's for the purpose of notifications which I'm not interested in.

Thank you

There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.

If you mean individual posts by different members, then what I do is to just save them all - the URLs - in a separate folder on my computer. They can be sorted by topic, or copied if they fall into multiple categories. It's as fast as using anything here on DW.

I just started a new google drive document and pasted the posts I like directly into it, then I inserted an auto-generated table of contents at the top. It's as close as I'm going to get :P

"Does Master Gotama have any position at all?"

"A 'position,' Vaccha, is something that a Tathagata has done away with. What a Tathagata sees is this: 'Such is form, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is feeling, such its origination, such its disappearance; such is perception...such are fabrications...such is consciousness, such its origination, such its disappearance.'" - Aggi-Vacchagotta Sutta
