Dynamic Bookmarking System
Hi everyone,

Iím pleased to announce the launch of the Dynamic Bookmarking system. We realized after the new site deployed that more members used the quick forum navigation menu than we first expected. We didn't know exactly which links were the most used so we decided to come up with a system that benefits everyone. And so, the Dynamic Bookmarking system was born!

How does it work?

It's quite simple. You've probably already noticed the "Bookmark" buttons scattered about the site. Simply click one and voila~ The forum will be added to a "My Navigation" box above the "Top 10 MMO Games" box. These bookmarks are persistent and will survive logouts. If you ever want to clear a bookmark, you may notice the green "+" changed to a red "-" when you added the bookmark. Simply click this button again and the bookmark will be removed.

You may only have 10 bookmarks at any given time -- so if you try to click the button and nothing happens, you may want to ensure you haven't reached that limit. I know, we're working on a more intuitive warning system for that.

Also, the Dynamic Bookmarks require JavaScript enabled. To keep the load on the server down, we have designed this system powered by AJAX (a JavaScript technology). If you use script blockers, you may want to allow * as you're missing out on a lot of cool things.

Finally, the bookmarks only work for registered members. If you frequent ggFTW for your game information, why not register? It's quick and free!

As time passes, we hope to add other areas of the site to the Dynamic Bookmarking system so you can quickly access your guild or favorite game page.

Bringing you the coolest stuff,

-- ggFTW Staff

Now that was weird; it seems I inadvertently broke profiles for a moment with this. Resolved~

+_____+ I never used the forum quick jump links, but this is soooo useful :D. I have things bookmarked already. Yay. Can't wait for the bookmarks to work on the rest of the site (like game pages and blogs and things).

Great job! Yay for less clicking! 8D

this is very nice, my browser often had stupid problems so i had to use the quick jump. now i can just use this 8D thanks~ /o/

I love this. Definitely a lot better to have a personal bookmarking list than a big one.

Blizt 09-24-2010 01:57 PM

wow, I didn't think this feature would be implemented so soon, but anyway this is awesome! :D


Noperative 09-24-2010 02:03 PM

in Reaction to the Bookmarks
Lets just say it's fabulous <3 Thanks for the addition :py04:

Indeed, I may use this instead of browsing the index page.
Checking what I need to check on the fly.

Haiko 09-24-2010 05:26 PM

This is really neat. I'm undecided on what to choose, though. D:

Good job, guys.
