Ability to "tag" certain instructables that I would easily like to return to Answered

Forgive me if there is already a way to do this.  Is it possible for members to mark or tag certain instructables (I realize it would have to be a limited number)?  I have favorites from many different categories and re-finding them again can sometimes be very cumbersome.  Thank you for your attention.


There is the "favorite" button, the little heart icon in the menu area with twitter, facebook, etc at the top of an instructable. Go back to your YOU profile to see the list of favorites that you selected. There is currently no way to organize that list of favorites but it has been requested to do so before. You may need to try just bookmarking the instructables with your browser and group it there if desired.

Thanks for the suggestions and response! Nick...

There isn't a way to do it, but it's a good idea.

As other readers have noted - adding to your "favorites" list is a lot better than nothing... thanks Kiteman!

There sort of is if your a Pro member... It's not the same but 'fave-ing' things sortof does the same job.. I know thats what i use it for

The author is pro already - he obviously has a lot of favourites that need sorting.

Tags is one way, other people have asked for folders.

I think folders would be cool come to think of it

Just add them to your favourites?

I never considered that. My favorites "doth runneth over"... but it is sure better than nothing. Thank you!

The best way to do this is to use your browser's "bookmarks" system. You can create arbitrary folders, or even nested hierarchies, and they can be as complex or as simple as you like.

Relying on every individual Web site to duplicate that sort of functionality is rather silly, when browsers provide it in a common way for all Web sites.

Thank you... will definitely try it out. Thanks again!
