One other thing, is there a way to change what I've named a folder? I realize that I can group more than just "Paper" together but I don't know how to go back and alter the title of that folder without having to delete it, open it anew and remember everything I filed there, then go back and move each topic one by one Tongue.

I don't believe you can do that, either, but it'd be easiest to leave them all there and add them to a new folder first, then delete the old folder.  Sorry!

I came to this thread looking for an answer to the question craftylittlemonkey had but I was hoping for a different answer than this.  I'd LOVE to see a way to change the folder name as I've already twice wanted to change one and the current method is a pain.

SO excited that we can now jump to a specific page on a board!  Whew...I had absolutely given up trying to find out what happened on the craftyhousewares:completed projects:general board page 63 when I had to start at page 3 and go 3 by 3 from there...

What's the chance that we can make that feature apply to searching through the 8799 of pages of users/members board?  Even to try and find myself, knowing my own username, is almost impossible---even starting with the letter W I find myself having to go through the laborious process of paging through tons of users with names starting with W.---It's so cumbersome that I have completely written off the "ViewAllMembers" board all together!

Jump to page in the member list is a good idea, but I'm wondering why you'd ever want to find yourself (or anyone else whose name you knew) that way! The search is so much easier.

Also, until that exists, if you want to jump pages there you can always just change the number at the end. The pages are in multiples of 30. So if you're at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=mlist;sort=realName;start=263820 and you want to jump back 600 names (20 pages) you change it to http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=mlist;sort=realName;start=263220

Super-quick answer!  Awesome!

Oh, that totally works---I mean changing the number in the url itself.  I had no idea that was possible! Smiley

As for why do it?  It's not really about searching for names I know.

It's other information.  Like members I don't know.

For example, sometimes I just feel the urge to see what kind of ingenious names other craftsters have come up with for their username.  Or, in the case where my friend was newly joining craftster and wanted to come up with a username for herself, we were interested in seeing what names had already been used that were similar to the ones she was considering choosing.

I get fascinated by usernames, and sometimes feel the urge to browse the list just to see the fun places my mind goes in response to usernames.  (Okay, yeah, I'm weird! lol)

Is it possible to get the folder option when bookmarking from the
"Recent With Pictures" section? I usually just skim them when I'm busy and bookmark things as I go, but the "add to folder" option doesn't come up. So then, later when I have more time (which could be days), I have to try and remember which ones I've recently added but haven't filed away.

Same here.  I'd love for there to be a way to edit the folder name instead of having to move things to a new folder.
