    How to configure google reader's "send to" feature for diigo? It's in the settings menu.

    Anybody know?

    Re http://groups.diigo.com/Diigo_HQ/forum/topic/48920 I think we must wait for the error to be resolved.

    Another tip for the bookmarking sites: You can add "&tags=XXX" to the URL to automatically enter in some tags on the posting page. Just replace XXX with whatever tags you want. Diigo separates by comma, Delicious by space (you might have to put "%20" instead of a space, I'm not sure).

    If your favorite bookmarking site isn't here, rolling your own for your favorite site is easy. Just check out the API & bookmarklet for your site, and refer to the above examples as a reference. I've never worked with an API before, but figured out diigo's in a few minutes.

    > for each sent item, two bookmarks

    Maybe my first two were unlucky. The third one sent from Google Reader is fine.

    1. How often do you send from Google Reader to Diigo?

    2. When you send in that direction, are the end results acceptable?

    3. Generally, do you make your first marks or bookmarks of things:
    a) most often in Diigo or
    b) most often in Google Reader?

    I should probably steer replies to http://groups.diigo.com/Web2/forum/topic/50011 in the Web 2.0 group forum. Only because this discussion is the type that readers that could easily spin off, over a period of months, into areas completely unrelated to Diigo…

    basically never. I find it too awkward -- too many steps.

    Yes.

    I generally "star" items first using Google reader and then manually quick-bookmark them in Diigo. Later, I update all of the untagged bookmarks in Diigo.

    It would be nice to be able to "star" items in reader and then have them automatically be quick-bookmarked in Diigo.

    I hope that helps.

    There's a service that does that. It's called ifttt.com. Basically, you set up tasks, like "starred Greader items to diigo" and it does it automatically.
