    We have a new feature here, it is at the top of the page called My Pages.

    This is even handier than My Bookmarks.

    Click on My Pages, it is at the top of the page underneath The Quilting Board-The Quilter's Message Board title.

    Type in what you want the title of this page to be, and then click on create. It is that simple :D:D:D

    You can start a page titled: Applique
    then copy and paste links from here to that page. Type in a description next to the url (don't forget to leave a space between the url and the description) :D

    Label other pages: Stack and Whack, Scrappy, Tips, Tutorials, Recipes, etc...

    This may be an easier way to find your information, rather than going through long lists of titles in your My Bookmarks section.
    Especially when many topic titles here don't fully describe the quilt or subject :wink:


    For those who don't know how to copy and paste the url instead of clicking on bookmark:

    At the top of your screen, look for the url (it will start with http://)
    When you are on a page that you want to copy the link/url find this and right click it, then click copy.

    Then go to your My Page and the click on the page you want to add it to.
    Then click on Edit Page
    Then hit enter on your keyboard
    Then right click your mouse and click on paste
    The full, clickable url will appear
    You can then type in a description next to it. Ex: Scrappy Batik Quilt, Triple Threat Chocolate Cake, Beautiful Bargello, Tips for FMQ Quilting, etc.. Don't forget to leave a space or two between the url and your description :D

    You can go back and edit these pages whenever, however you want :D:D:D

    You are all welcome :D:D:D

    If you want to share links with someone here? You can refer them to one or more of your pages.
    Have them go to your profile page or send them a link to it, click on the tab (list) next to My Pages there, and they will be able to see all of your pages.

    Thanks for explaining that so well. I'm not real computer literate but I understood your explanation. This is a great idea.

    PS: Thanks Admin!!

    I have been using mine. It IS better at organizing all of the valuable info posted here, like marking folders and filing info. Bookmarks are o.k., but I have to read through my notes and hope somethings rings a bell. :)

    Amma, your instructions are great and I would love to try this feature. However, when I right click on the tab there is no "copy" on the menu. What am I doing wrong?
