How to Bookmark posts on Activerain

Real Estate Agent with Myrtle Beach Homes Blog

Since joing Activerain over 3 weeks ago now, i have read many many blogs that had some super useful advice in them.  The only thing was, I could never figure out how to get back to the article later.  Then, I found the bookmark button.  I started bookmarking articles I wanted for later, but could never find them to read again.  So, tonight I took some time and searched around and figured it out.  So, I thought I would post this for anyone else out there that may be wondering the same thing.

How to bookmark an article:

First thing you need to do is when you find an article you wish to bookmark, at the bottom of the blog, right before peoples comments begin will be an icon that says bookmark.  Here's a screenshot to show:

After you bookmark something the icon will change from being in white to red and the word changes from bookmark to bookmarked.

Now, to find these posts at another time, you will need to go to your Activerain homepage.  Then, scroll down the page and follow the column on the left side.  You will see a link titled Blog Bookmarks. 

Once clicking on the Blog Bookmarks link it will take you to a page that will show all the blogs you have bookmarked.


 This is a great way to save all those great tutorial articles you read, as well as the wonderful articles posted by so many people here in the Activerain community.  Finally you will no longer need to print out every article you want to keep for later, or copy and paste to an email!

Jeremy, great tutorial. You made it easy to follow and very thorough. Being a visual person, seeing how something is done is a whole lot better than reading about it.

Great Post!

Thank you!  I "searched" to find your blog.  Too easy - it was right under my nose but might have never found it.  You saved me alot of time.

Yes, thanks Jeremy. All this time I've been saving the blog posts to Favorites on my computer. Tonight the big DUH occurred and I went straight to Help/FAQs. And there you were with the simple answer. So now I have a RED bookmark on your blog.
