Can Xenforo (or an add in mod) allow bookmarking of individual posts?

    I know I can "remember" a thread (or what ever Xenforo calls that feature) so that I can find/return to it later.

    But is it possible to bookmark an individual post?

    On increasing occasion, a PoA member contributes something in a single post that I want to make sure I can find later. Bookmarking the individual post would be more efficient than bookmarking the thread that has lots of activity and pages of contributions.

    I have an "off site" workaround, but doing it within PoA is desired.

    There are some occasional gold nuggets on here. I know that on a couple of occasions that I wanted to go back and reread an individual post on a matter but couldn’t remember which thread it was in or even for certain who posted it. Using the normal search feature can be cumbersome. Now I try to save those nuggets to a word document that I started. So yeah, I agree on the need.

    Sorta, but more bookmarking within Xenforo than within the browser.

    But your idea is giving me an idea for doing it in the browser.... or a "side app" such as Evernote or Noteability.
