full-text search features

    The advanced search features remain, but the old GUI to those features seems to be deprecated at this time.

    http://groups.diigo.com/Diigo_HQ/forum/topic/9754#6 and
    http://groups.diigo.com/Diigo_HQ/forum/topic/9754#16for some hints on advanced search.

    Example: searching for a word that you wrote

    http://www.diigo.com/search?adSScope=my&what=c:mentira should

    a) find your bookmarks that have the word mentira in a page comment, or in your description of the bookmark, or in a sticky note, or in a floating note

    — re: comments versus description there may be some confusion, but don't worry about that for the moment

    and

    b) allow you to see annotations (including the matched word).

    Example: searching for a word that you highlighted

    http://www.diigo.com/search?adSScope=my&what=h:evolucionismo should find at least the one public bookmark where evolucionismo is highlighted.

    Example: searching for a word within the full text of the bookmarked item

    http://www.diigo.com/search?adSScope=my&what=text:flagrante should find at least the one bookmark that has the word flagrante in the text of the page (but not necessarily in your highlights or written annotations).

    Note that search results may depend on whether matching items have been cached by Diigo. http://www.diigo.com/cached?url=http%3A%2F%2Fempollonintegrista.wordpress.com%2F2009%2F05%2F15%2Fchorradas-conspiranoicas is an example of a page that is cached.

    PS, sorry about the broken hyperlinks. Reportedly a problem with the Rails technology that's used for the forums. You'll need to copy and paste the URLs, without following the hyperlinks.
