Great idea over on pissed on heads.

TiggyD Wed 12-Apr-17 21:25:40 have an automatic place marker!

You read a thread up to post 6, leave, then when you go back to it, just after post 6 is a bar that says "Last Visit"!

I want one!

Love your thread title, Tiggy grin

Don't you use the bookmark? Or is it just that you want a little marker that says 'Last Visit'?!!!

TanteRose Thu 13-Apr-17 07:24:40

that's actually not a bad idea...

LOVING "pissed on heads" grin

Where's the bookmark function?

Click on the three dots in the bottom right hand corner of a post and an option to book mark comes up. Click that. When you refresh the page it automatically takes you to the book marked post.

There is no option to bookmark?

You have to turn the function on first in your settings bit (which I can't find at the moment). I will report this to MN so they can help.

I don't know how it works on the App, but on the desktop site you need to go into Preferences to turn on the bookmark function - scroll down to where it says Display bookmark links, say 'Yes' and then Save.

I'd love to know how to remove bookmarks.

FruSkogKattOla Thu 13-Apr-17 08:10:06

Lego, go into Preferences (the link I posted, above) and just turn it off by saying 'No' and then Save.

On my phone, I just press bookmark again. Just pressing it again turns it off. I'm not sure if the display will disappear, but the function will, I believe

Amazing. Thank you.

While everyone is being so informative, I have a question. On my phone, my own posts show up as a different colour, but despite how many routes I take to the customise menu, I can't find the option to have the OP's posts show in a different colour.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

FruSkogKattOla Thu 13-Apr-17 14:18:29

Datun. I believe that the App doesn't have as many functions that the desktop and mobile sites have. And/or newer members of MN don't have access to some of the functions that those of us who've been around for a few years still have access to. Maybe MNHQ could answer this question?

Datun Thu 13-Apr-17 14:23:35

Thanks FruSkogKattOla

I've been on here for about five years, and have never had it. So maybe it's something that I can't get. I do periodically ask MNHQ, but I think they say the same as you.

I have never been able to figure out how to bookmark on my phone (mobile site).

FruSkogKattOla Thu 13-Apr-17 16:32:53

Datun and Hearts. Could you get yourselves onto the desktop site and try changing your preferences on there first - and then it might work with the mobile or App each of you're both using? It's worth a try anyway!

<waves> at Hearts too!! Hi!

Datun Thu 13-Apr-17 18:53:38


Gah. I've tried that. I've tried every which way.

FruSkogKattOla Thu 13-Apr-17 19:04:08

I get the idea that the MN App is an absolute bugger!!

Would you consider moving back to the mobile site? Mind you, Hearts says she doesn't like that either confused

I use the desktop site both on my laptop and iPad. Maybe I'm a tad old-fashioned, but ..............

TiggyD Thu 13-Apr-17 19:19:06

I've bookmarked here. I'll see what happens...
