This is a repeat of a question that I asked 3 1/2 years ago and the correct answer at the time no longer works for me. Maybe it is because of the Faithlife integration? Any help is appreciated.

Original Question (slightly edited): 

Hi, I just marked post as a favorite. I thought that it would be handy to save this as a favorite thread since I might use it frequently.

Now that I have it marked as a favorite, how do I access it quickly? I see no option, such as a "Favorite Posts" buttons. I'm assuming that the purpose of marking it as a favorite is to access it quickly and am also assuming that I am missing something simple.

Thanks.

Did you click on your account ID in the top right of the forum page?  It takes you to your favorites on FaithLife (account).  Also clicking on 'Forum Activity' on the top line of your post.

Hi Denise,

Yes, when I click on my name in the upper right hand corner it takes me to my forum activity. 

On my forum activity page, there is nothing about favorite posts. So I then click on my profile button to enter Faithlife and still nothing about favorite posts. The darkened areas are two groups. Am I at least in the right ballpark?

Peace  Smile

You'll have to put up with my dumbness.  I'm probably missing something!

Below, on my post on your thread, in the right menu, I selected to save my post to my account.  (I also saved the forum too out of curiousity).

Then I clicked on my name at the top. (While your thread was in view).

..

I can't quite tell from your screenshots at what point you're clicking.

I click on my name (at the top) when I'm on a thread.  Or looking at the list of threads. Or on the forum 'Home'.  Clicking on my name above my post doesn't work.  I haven't tried other locations to click on my name.

Denise:

Actually, I appreciate you putting up with my dumbness.  Stick out tongue

If all else fails, I can simply save the post to my internet browser's favorites but I would rather not have to do that. Thanks for your help again.

Here is exactly what I did and continue to do.

1) Knowing that the MOOC thread would soon get buried, I clicked on the "More" button and clicked the "Add this Post to Favorites" button.

#2: After saving a favorite, I would think that I would be able to click on my name in the upper right hand corner of the forums home page and see some kind of a menu that shows my favorites.

#3: Instead, all that I get is a page with "My Activity". It does not show anything about favorite posts.

#4: I then went to Faithlife and signed in to see if anything about favorite threads or posts are hidden there and I don't see anything.

Peace  Smile

Hmmm ... well, looking at your steps, I'm not sure.  I tried your steps again, and now I have another favorite from your thread.

I'm on Opera, so I went over to IE and tried there too.  I'm adding a lot of favorites!

As a minimum, I think we can assume something's not working correctly. I notice they have it coded not to display the Add-Favorite without cookies (along with java).  So, that can't be it.

One last question before we need an expert (!).  When you add the favorite, do you either see a busy icon (mouse) which would be IE, or a quiet nothingness before looking spiffy again (Opera)?

It sounds like it's not saving the favorite (which obviously you've noticed). But I'm suggesting that querying the favorite is probably not the issue.

In any event, I'd think a call to Logos should be in order; I don't think there's any secret code (none that they gave me anyway!).  It should work as you tried.

Thanks for helping me confirm there is a problem. I've tried using Chrome on my desktop computer and Internet Explorer on my laptop with no results.

Thanks again.

Rick, you should be able to view your own favorites with the following url: https://community.logos.com/members/133915/favorites/default.aspx

That this isn't already exposed to you on the forum activity page is a bug. I've opened a case for it.
