Trouble Finding My Favorites

I just noticed my 20 or so Favorites are not listed in my account. I then added a new Favorite post to check that it is currently working and it is.


I saw that someone else had difficulty retrieving their Favorites in April and they were shown a link to find them.


Thanks for the help,


Dave

Thanks Floyd.


Yes, there are two now, but I had many more saved Favorites over the past 3-4 months.

I lost a ton of favorites and Floyd gave me these two links that I bookmarked and now that's the only way I can get to them.  See it they work for you.

Thanks Carol.  Those on your link look to be specific to your account.  I am hoping Floyd can find the links to my old ones.

I was able to find my favorite forums and blogs by using Carol's links. It just took a few steps but at least I can now find them -


1. Go to your account by clicking on "My account" on left of screen


2. Click on "Forum topics" or one of the tabs on top such as "Edit"


3. Then look at the very top of your screen at your address line for the website, it will be the www.freshloaf etc and in the address there is a number that must be your user number


4. That link that Carol gave you copy and paste it in a web page but put your user number where her 13968 user number is then click enter, I did this for both the forums and blogs and found all my old lost favorites and then just saved a link to it.

I used your method and found the two most recent Favorites in the Forum which also appear when I review my account.  However, the older ones are still not evident.


Thanks for taking the time to help.

Sorry that yours didn't show up, when I tried it, thankfully mine showed up. I don't know why they don't just show up under our accounts anymore. Did you try the link for the blogs too?

Thanks Carol, I used your links to find mine and now can once again access my favorites. Don't know why they disappear like that.

what do you click on to make a favorite?  There doesn't appear to be any button anywhere to add one.

I have noticed that recently also, my whole list of favorites are missing except for one that I put on not long ago.

I have been posting to threads I want to be able to check back on, so I can go to my acct>track, and then see those.


Being able to favorite threads would be so much more helpful!

I do not see any in my "account settings". I see blogs, would that be the same thing ?

Thanks,
