Can I save forum posts here?

Postby hano » Wed Jan 11, 2017 12:43 pm

I want to keep some posts saved for later reference, is it possible in these forums?

C&P in your favourite text app. If you need links or images, save as web archive.

Most of the time I do what Slowtiger mentioned and keep the info in GoogleDocs or in a LibreOffice doc in Dropbox. Less formally, I might bookmark a forum page and save the bookmarks to a Moho Reference folder. In that case, I'll give the bookmark a more descriptive name so I can find it later.

If you need the page to be viewed offline and you need the images, etc., and you use Evernote or OneNote, there is a browser clipper plugin for each note taking program that can save the entire page in its original format. I'm not sure movies will work if they're being streamed from another site though.

The nice thing with Evernote is that you can tag notes (i.e, Moho, Forum, Tips, etc.,) to make them easily searchable. If you want Evernote to be locally accessible and sync with the web version, you need to pay a subscription fee though.

One forum feature I use a lot is the View Your Posts link above. This shows you only the posts you've created or replied to. This can make is easy to find recent posts you've participated in and review the info. I probably use this more than the Search.

The forum Search tools works well too. I guess it would neat if we could tag topics and posts but I don't think this forum offers that.

The forum software could do this, it just has to be configured.

In Safari you can click on the little plus inside a circle the search space and add to read later . I use this to save a lot of things. Forums etc.
