How can I save a forum thread (that I did not post on) for future reference?
At the bottom of the last post on the left side there are three buttons, "new topic" "post reply" and "print topic." Below that is a short sentence "Watch this topic for replies". Click on the "Watch this topic" and you're in.
Look at the bottom left under the new topic and reply button, there is a purple line that says "watch this thread" HTH
