  1. Threadmark: Initial release

    Xon Cabal Arm Commander Director

    This is a feature @LordSquishy has wanted deployed to SV for some time.

    Under each post, is a new Bookmark link, which when opened gives you a variety of options to describe the link. It is then stored on your profile under "Your Bookmarks";

    To the left of your profile avatar/profile dropdown, is a new link "bookmarks" (@NonSequtur @notthepenguins @foamy will probably replace it with an icon of some sort) for viewing your "favorites".

    This allows you to well "bookmark" arbitrary posts. In the future this will allow more content types (ie conversation messages) and the ability to share bookmarks or have public bookmarks.

    Once you have some bookmarks;
    (Thanks to @azoicennead for this screenshot)

    Please be aware this hasn't been coded to our usual high standards as we acquired the rights to the add-on, and have since been retrofitting it to be more reliable, have better performance, and be more extendable. And better UI, but that is still coming.

    This sort of feature is only possible due to the on going support of contributors, who help fund ongoing development.

    Please consider subscribing!

    Yes, now i can clear up the clutter that is my bookmarks bar. And just clutter up SV's servers instead!

    Thanks Xon. The True Wizard.

    Thank you so much for this, Xon.

    Now I can make a single post about beating down fanon, bookmark it, and then constantly reference it. :V

  17. Thanks Xon! Make sure to take a break from tirelessly churning out features to relax a bit this holiday season! Not too long of a break though, if you're making cool features like this :V

    There's not much we can do about that. There's only so much screen real estate, and at that size you've already lost higher-priority menu items. You'll need to access it through the drop-down menu under your profile icon, as you would your inbox or alerts.

    Your phone is wider than his. As such, it needs less resizing.

    As I've just seen on my phone, the real problem for me is that it somehow pushes up the alerts and PM shortcuts off the screen as well. And that's annoying, because those used to be there for now on the phone and now aren't, and using the alerts is my primary way to move through the forums. The alert and PM shortcuts, as well as the bookmark shortcut, appear during loading but not afterwards. Is there some way to at least get the PM and alert shortcuts there again? Have the bookmark shortcut be somewhere else maybe ;)
