Save this discussion is now Save this Board?

      Not really, Categories have gone back to being called Boards, but the "Save this discussion" becoming "Save this board" is another thing. I hadn't noticed it until now.

      So we can't save threads anymore? That sucks.

      EDIT: I just did a test with this thread and the favourites function still works the same. So I guess it was just renamed by accident.

        Its the same thing. Still saves the discussion.

        1. re: carolinadawg

          Well, yes, but the name is misleading and should be fixed.

          1. re: SnackHappy

            looks like both are needed

            Save the Board when you're on any board home page
            and Save the topic/discussion/thread when you're on a specific OP within a board.

            go get em SnackH.

        Embrace change? Are you aware that a board and a discussion, thread, whatever are not the same thing?

        This is a mistake that needs to be fixed.

          Read my last post before you bite my head off :)
          I was teasing. Geez. This stuff gets under your skin that much. Not me.

          But yes, you've made a very valid observation. One I have taken the time to look at with your encouragement.


      2. This is a bug, which should be fixed very soon. As carolinadawg says, only the text is wrong—the actions are still working correctly.

        On discussions, it should say "Save This Discussion" and on boards it should say "Save This Board"

          OK. phew. I thought it was just me that I suddenly couldn't figure out how to save a discussion.
