My favourites list is getting large, well not that large - only 57.

It's large enough for me that I often don't bother looking through it to find one of my favourites. I mostly use the site search or find (ctrl+f) to get what I am looking for.

It would be nice to be able to sort my favourites into categories. Like where I can assign labels/folders like "How-To's", "Projections", "Data Sources", "Topology", "General Reference" etc...

I am currently in the process of subscribing to all my favourites with the RSS feed and organizing them in my rss reader based on my own labels/folders.

It became available in 04th, January, 2013 a new elasticsearch-based search engine which included the term infavorites: as an addtional option for searching favorite threads.

The below answer of John Seigel brings all details:

Search in favorited questions?

For instance, use:

 infavorites:mine is:question [qgis]

to search all questions self marked as favorite and which are labeled with

One can search for all users together favorited threads in a specific topic:

infavorites:all is:question [qgis] 

and also another users' favorited threads (e.g. all threads favorited by you and which are labeled with ) :

infavorites:1297 is:question [projection]
  • This is definitely a step in the right direction. It would still be nice to sort by my own categories (not rely on crowd sourced labels).

  • Yes, I understand your point of view. Maybe now one knows about this feature he/she can review some poorly tagged threads inside their favorite lists and make them more searchable. Commented Nov 4, 2013 at 17:38
