How to Use Our New Bookmarks and Forums Features: A Guide

This just in: Today we’re launching two new features on Remodelista, Gardenista, and The Organized Home: Bookmarks and Forums.

Through our new Bookmarks tool, you can save stories and product pages from all three sites in your own personal Bookmarks file. Save inspiration and know-how to come back to later—and organize it all into collections, too, like “Kitchen Ideas” or Design Travel itineraries for an upcoming trip.

We’ve also added a community bulletin board called Forums to our sites, where you can ask—and answer—your burning design and remodeling questions and share sources.

Have a house tour you want to save or a question to ask in Forums? Here’s how.

Bookmarks

Look for this symbol on every post and product page: bookmark symbol and text displayed 10. It appears along with the black and white sharing icons: for articles, that’s towards the top of each story on the lefthand side; for Shop Our Picks product pages, it’s at the bottom of each product listing.

1. Click on the Bookmark icon.

just click the icon and a box will pop up asking if you want to add the page to 11
Just click the icon and a box will pop up asking if you want to add the page to an existing or collection or create a new collection.

2. Add to an existing collection or create a new collection.

To add to an existing collection, simply click Add to Collection. If want to create a new collection, select New Collection, type in the name (in this case WALLPAPER), and select Private or Public (Public means that you can share it on social media). Click Add New Collection.
once the new wallpaper collection is created, click on add to collection to add 13
Once the new WALLPAPER collection is created, click on Add to Collection to add the page to this new collection.

3. You can always remove a Bookmark later.

After bookmarking the post, you’ll get a success message. You can always remove the bookmark from your collection later by using the red Remove Bookmark button.

In My Account, all of your Bookmark collections are visible on the lefthand side of the screen. You can expand each collection to see the individual Bookmarks and click through to the post or product. You can share them on social from here, too.

Forums

Tens of thousands of readers come to our sites each month, which means there’s enormous collective knowledge about sources, remodeling how-tos, and design. And now there’s a single place to post questions to the Remodelista and Gardenista community: Forums. Find it in the menu bar at the top of every page.

forums in remodelista navigation bar 17

We’ve created some general topics (like Kitchens) to get you started, but create new queries for whatever interests you. Looking for a specific paint color, or wondering how a particular countertop material holds up? This is a place for readers to share resources and report in on remodeling dos and don’ts. Anyone can browse the Forums, but to ask and answer questions you’ll need to join the Remodelista family of sites as a free member or a subscriber.

1. Find Forums.

the forums are grouped by major &#8\2\20;categories&#8\2\2\1;, such as  18
The Forums are grouped by major “categories”, such as a room (e.g. Kitchen), then divided into narrower topics (like Sinks & Faucets).

2. Ask a question.

it&#8\2\17;s easy to pose a question: just click on the subcategory that be 19
It’s easy to pose a question: Just click on the subcategory that best fits (like Kitchen Storage & Organization) and choose Create a New Topic, then type in a title (“Best storage for flour?”) and a question (“What’s the best way to store flour for easy access—and to keep it fresh?”). Click Create Topic, and you’re done. Once you ask a question, you’ll be notified by email when anyone posts a response.

If you are new to using a community bulletin board, read some answers to common FAQs about the system. Otherwise, just jump in and start asking some of your unanswered design questions. Happy browsing!
