I'm totally backwards today. You can't print blogs, but you can print articles (with the print button.) Sorry!!

One last thing, I did find that you can save the blogs still. The button (more 3 lines with the red heart save) was there.

Glad we figured it out. Our site works best with Firefox or Chrome, so those are always the browsers we recommend to members using our site.

Sorry it took so long to uncover the mystery!

I went on my husband's computer and tried Foxfire before I found your response and low and behold there were the buttons for different functions. So we were both right and wrong for what we were looking at.

I wonder why different browser's do that to their customers. Microsoft Edge should be told about that problem, don't you think? ME is preventing Sparkpeople's customers from getting all the features that SP offers. I wonder what else I may be missing here and other places!

And now I feel bad that I took up so much of your time, but hey I hope we both learned something about all of this. I guess the first question should be "what browser are you using?"

Thanks again for all your help and patience.

Paula

Can you try google chrome and see if you can see the button I've described?

This will be the last I post on the subject unless you ask for an answer.
Thank you for being so responsive, but you are wrong (in my opinion).
I find that articles and blogs alike do not have the ability to save to a favorites list. Spark TV has a "More" button but nothing shows up in the space. I have saved both blogs and articles in the past as well as one of the threads on the game feed. Unless my computer is not picking up on some of the nuances of Sparkpeople (and I don't understand how that would be possible, but I'm not ruling it out) when the newer format of the articles was put together that feature was eliminated either by mistake or on purpose to save space. But I don't see the feature now.
Thank you once again for taking your time and answering my questions so promptly and patiently.

These buttons aren't on blogs, only articles. Sorry, you can't save blogs.

As I said in the first post I had seen the save indicators before, but not now. I remember the ones you say, but I don't see them now. Thanks for trying to help Jen, but I don't see what you have talked about. Could they be on the app and not on the computer site? I have been trying to save:

But like I've said I do not see any of what you are referring to.

Ah sorry. It's the blue button on the right at the top of the page with the 3 lines on it. Click on it, and the "save" option with the heart next to it will save to your favorites.

Sorry for the confusion, that was recently changed.

Coach Jen,
Thanks for getting back to me, but I do not see the "More" button, then or now. I had the text of the article at 125% so I put it back to 100%...still no "More" button. I may be blind, but I don't see it and I looked on other pages, also. Including ones I previously saved. Did you look at the articles? The only "More" button I see is on my Spark page. I knew that was there, but I see nothing on the articles. It may be starring me in the face, but I don't see it. Also wouldn't it say "Save to favorites" in the articles?

Click on the blue "More" button at the top of the article and the Favorites option is there.

Hope that helps,

I didn't use it frequently, but did Spark remove a way to place articles into Favorites? I found something I would like to put a quick link to, but I have looked and looked (and wasted time) looking for a way to save the article. I finally just saved it to my computer...not my first desire. Am I just overlooking something obvious? You used to have a "save" button and then took that away and had the 3 3 lines (which, one day, I accidently found had a way to save the articles). Now, since the newer formatting of the articles, which I do like the new appearance of, there is no way to save them to my Spark page. Was this eliminated or just overlooked?
