tags-related Ubuntu CAPTCHA sidebar tag bug resolved

started by Magnolia South on 30 Apr 09

    Here's an example. If I look up the tag "vegas" I get this, "no bookmarks tagged vegas" but if I look to the right where it says "my tags" I see the tag vegas. Not only that, but it says "vegas 10" so that means that I DO have bookmarks tagged vegas. Why can't I retrieve them?

    The first day it happened, I just shrugged it off thinking it would be fixed, and did so again the next day... and the next day... and the next day... but it's going on two weeks now. What gives? I need to be able to retrieve my bookmarks ASAP. I've been patient, but this has gone on too long now.

    Edited to add that also in Ubuntu, I cannot see the captcha here. I had to switch computers just to post this. Please fix that as well. I'm using the exact same extensions in Firefox on both computers, so it isn't extension related.

    Agreed, same thing happened with me using Mozilla Firefox with Private Bookmarks, one Tag per Bookmark.

    About a month ago, there seemed to be a one or two day delay before a Bookmark would show up under its proper Tag. Your Bookmark exists, and can be Exported, but currently it seems that they take a long time (or never) to show up under the correct Tag.

    Perhaps this is due to a huge delay in Reindexing, as Joel Liu mentions?

    Try the following...

    EDIT A BOOKMARK'S TAG AND SAVE IT
    Pick one of the problem Bookmarks in question,
    Edit it,
    change the Tag to a Tag that doesn't exist,
    Save the Bookmark with the new Tag.

    EDIT THE BOOKMARK'S TAG BACK TO THE ORIGINAL
    Click Bookmarks,
    Edit it again,
    and change the Tag back to the Tag you actually need,
    Save.

    WAIT
    The number of Bookmarks under the Tag you actually need will be up-to-date,
    and the actual Bookmark will be under the Tag in one to two days (!).

    THANK YOU
    Until Diigo develops an enhancement to rectify this,
    we'll need to do these updates manually.
    *sigh*

    Let's keep sharing Diigo ideas!

    Diigo is going to lose lots of people if this goes on any longer. I just made the switch from Delicious a couple of weeks ago. Thankfully, I discovered the feature to auto-save to Delicious right away, because Diigo has been completely useless for retrieving my bookmarks. A glitch this huge is kind of reminding me of the Magnolia fiasco...not a good thing to be associated with.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. However, the data is safe and all bookmarks before 4/04 were retrievable now. The system is catching up.

    I am a user of delcious and have been for years, and I cannot agree (at all) with you that Diigo is "not very interesting." In fact, it is VERY interesting. It does so much more than delicious. In my opinion, Diigo has many more pros than delicious and many less cons than delicious as well.

    As far as being reliable, I remember when delicious had this VERY same issue and it took months to sort out. This is no different than any other application with issues.

    There are only a few things that delicious does that I wish Diigo would do. If I were to reverse that I would have to say that there are A LOT of things that Diigo does that I wish delicious would do. There is really no comparison in my opinion.

    Finally, the original designers of delicious have left Yahoo. The big exodus was headline news. Since then, it's been incredibly buggy. Yahoo is falling apart at the seams and personally I'd prefer a team that is still dedicated to its work. When Nick left Yahoo, I left delicious... more or less. It was the turning point where I began to rely more heavily on Diigo than delicious.

    All that said, I'm trying to be patient, I really am. It's just that this comes at a very bad time. I need it right now for research that I'm doing for my mother. I don't want to have to resort to delicious... EWWWW.

    I'm not sure I follow this. How do you search by title?

    Just as I was discussing things with Korben, this is one of the few things I wish Diigo would do that delicious does very well. When we search for a bookmark in delicious, all at once you are searching for that keyword in the following locations:

    a. tags
    b. title
    c. description

    Diigo doesn't appear to do this and it really should for effective searching. That said I am also very interested in figuring out how you're searching for keywords in both the title and text. That would be an excellent thing to do. I've read how Diigo caches things, but I've never been able to figure that part out.

    I am sure Diigo is cool tool...but as a new user (only install diigo toolbar a few days ago), i just wanted to rearrange my bookmarks and access them easily with the sidebar...which i can't do...
    There is certainly many other cool features...but for now, I just wanted this one...and try the other later...

    Excellent point! They have a blog, after all, so why aren't they updating us in the blog? If they want to keep site issues out of the "promotional" blog, fine... then create a site issues and update blog and keep it updated for us.

    Lack of communication is never good business.

    @ Korben

    I find that only recent bookmarks are affected. Tags filter in sidebar does present older bookmarks that match my entry.

    Sorry if I express myself not clearly enough.

    * I can find the bookmark if i type a word that is in his title or in his description
    * but i can't find it if i use a word or words used in the page but not in the tittle, like in Furl, that's what i meant by full text search. Am I wrong assuming that Diigo search should be able to do that?

    Thaks
    Merci

    Completely same in Japanese TAG.

    This problem came up recently I think.

    Not related to tags.

    Stéphane: please, could you post to a separate topic with an example of an affected URL? Thanks.
