    Maybe today's not the day to make a suggestion.  I see a lot of forum subjects as being problems that probably need current attention.  So, for future consideration....

    I would love to see a "Bookmark this page" link on each forum page - at least for forums focusing on help for Hubbers.  It would make it so much easier to find that good advice that I skimmed over and thought I might return to at a later date.

    Also, in our HubGroups - the way they are linked at the bottom of the Hubs (as suggestions for further reading), they move in a specific order, with a beginning and end Hub.  If someone started reading a Hub that was in the middle of the group, they might follow the links to other Hubs, but at some point they would reach the end of the group.  Is there any way to make the list circular, so that the last item in the group is followed by the first one?  That way, a visitor could keep reading all of the Hubs in the group more easily, if they choose to.

      I like your ideas.  Sometimes, with the forums, the threads get buried back on the 5th page or further back.  It'd be nice to be able to find them quicker. (especially if you can't remember the title!)

      Your web browser can already do this and you can even link to specific posts if you wish to pinpoint a particular bit of info.  There's no need for HubPages to reinvent the ability to bookmark a forum page or post.

        are you talking about the bookmarks on the browser?  mines already so full of stuff it's hard to find what I'm looking for...(went on a spree when I first got online. lol)

      I second the circular idea.

    You make a good point, relache.  Still, individual Hubs can be bookmarked, and that was what gave me this idea.

    All you have to do is make a folder, name it Hub forums or something like that, and put those bookmarks in it.  Individual posts have a permalink, which lets you click and get the URL for just that post.

    I love the circular idea with the hub groups.  I would also like to be able to list hubs in more than one category.

      I like that idea too (more than one category - or "group," maybe; I guess that's what I actually mean, even though it may not be your idea)!

      Yesterday I spent way too much time trying to create an elaborate interlinking scheme, to provide additional links on each of my most popular Hubs to a popular one within another group, so that theoretically an interested reader could go from one group to another without having to revisit my profile page.  I haven't implemented it yet, and I don't know whether it will work.  But I really prefer the idea of being able to label a Hub as part of more than one group.

        Or just have a Next /Previous Group link.

          Yes!  Very good! (With or without naming the group - what do you think?)
