Bookmarks tab added to floating footer

The floating footer should feature a bookmarks tag to make it easy for users to bookmark a thread or category and return to it later.

This functionality is built into Discourse already, we just need to move it closer to the user.

To bookmark a page simply click G + B on your keyboard together. We can package that in a button.

You can also redirect a user to so they can see their bookmarks

My UX suggestion would be:

  • Clicking the tab opens
  • On touch screen pressing the screen opens an accordion drop down button (a drop up?) so users can either remove their finger to complete the ‘click’, or swipe up in a long press to highlight the option which would be ‘+ to bookmarks’
  • Non touch screen would be the the same, press down mouse button opens accordion, releasing opens the highlighted option.
