in reply to How to trace discussions

Check out your Personal Nodelet, which stores any node you want as part of your PM user data. You may need to enable it in your User Settings. Currently, there's no way of indicating when a new message is posted to a thread, but that seems to be a highly requested feature for PM.

    When clicking on link Personal nodelet you provided, I got error message:

    You don't have access to that node. Tough beans.
    Probably my rank is not high enough...yet.

    Personal nodelet is hidden deep in user setting and I did not understand usage of it right away. It was not obvious to me what it is - and think "satchel" is *much* more appropriate place personal belongings of devout perl monk, than some "nodelet", right?

    You are creating nice place - and quite addictive, too. :)

    Thank you!

      Ok, my bad, Personal Nodelet is not a special node, it's a nodelet that appears on the right side of the screen.

      To activate it, you need to go to user settings, and under Frontpage Nodelet, check the box next to Personal Nodelet if not already checked. Also check "Use Frontpage Nodelet's Everywhere" at the bottom of that section.

      Submit and reload; you should see all the nodelets on the right hand side of the browser. Go to any node that you wish to keep track of, and you'll see that at the bottom of the box for "Personal Nodelet" is a simple "add (node title)" line. Click this, and that node is dropped into the personal nodelet. Then, anywhere you are in PM, you have access to whatever nodes are stored there. (I usually keep thinks like Super Search and Message Inbox in there as well for quick reference). If you want to remove a node, head back to user settings, and at the bottom of the page is a list of nodes in the personal nodelet, which you can click on the checkboxes to remove.

      Or optionally, you can always create the links on your home node.

        Thank you, I found it.

        When customizing my settings, "personal nodelet" did not ring with me. Maybe we need to place your answer to my question into Site How To section, with title like "Personal Nodelet - custom links to your favorite places in Monastery".

        I still think that Personal Nodelet deserves more colorful name. :)

    I've heard of places that store favorites/bookmarks on a web site, to provide for multi-home browsing and to keep sensitive material off your machine. I suppose they have browser plugins to make it transparant to add a bookmark to the list. You might look for that, not just for PM but in general.
      This looks like cool idea. Do you know a link to any such a site, by chance?
