Adding a subject to favorites

justanotherpenguin Jul 29, 2007 04:52 PM

i am now unable to do this. when i first joined chowhound a few months ago, i was able to go into a thread, click on options, then click on favorite. the box would come up and, at the bottom i was able to check "favorite this subject", or something like that, and the subject would appear in my favorites folder.

so i can still get to the favorites box, but the "favorite this subject" check-box stopped coming up about a month ago, and i cannot, for the life of me, figure out what i am doing wrong. jacquilynne & davina told me last week at the meet-up in los angeles that there should be a place to "add this to favorites", but i don't know where it is. please help. thanx.

    What browser are you using?

    I'm using FireFox and when I click on "Topic Options" at the top of the thread, I'm offered a drop-down menu. The first option at the top of the menu is to "Favorite Topic" and I can click into a small box to select that option. However, once I click that box, nothing happens (the drop down menu remains in place, but there is now a check mark in that box). When I go to My Chow and then "Favorites" the thread is there.

    I've no idea if this helps or not.

      Here's what it looks like on my computer when I click on the arrow next to Topic Options, do you not see the same thing?
