tags delete

    I had a few thousand bookmarks in Diigo up until a few months ago, and ended up deleting them from Diigo and moving them to Evernote. After I realized that Diigo was the place to be, I decided to clean up what I had, and move them back. Looking at my tags with NO bookmarks, there were still over 250 tags. If I have no bookmarks, I should have no tags, correct? If I try to manually delete a tag, it says it is deleted, but when I go back into my tag list, they are still in there. This is very confusing now because some tags are really empty, and the ones that do actually have bookmarks are not correct in their counts because of the lingering counts from previous bookmarks that don't exist. Is there a way to fix this? It's pretty frustrating!

    Another weird twist to this.... I have a tag called "family" that currently has one bookmark in it. The tag list said I had something like 8 bookmarks with this tag. I went to the only bookmark with the "family" tag, and removed it, saved the bookmark, re-added it and re-saved it, and now the tag count is correct.

    So I have a long-roundabout way to fix tag counts on tags with bookmarks assigned to them, but I don't seem to have a way to delete tags that have no actual bookmarks assigned to them. I tried to save a bookmark with an errant mis-counted tag, and then deleted the tag from the bookmark, but that didn't seem to fix the issue with tags that are miscounted with no actual bookmarks in them.

    I'm having a similar problem here. I'm deleting tags, but the tags that have been deleted are still appearing in the tag cloud.

    @sandy_diigo Thanks. Tags are *sometimes* now being deleted. I still have an issue with tags appearing in the tag cloud for bookmarks that no longer exist. At http://www.diigo.com/cloud/btocher, several of the tags at the foot, where there is supposedly "one" item, no longer exist, yet are still showing. For example, see the tags "themes" and "labels". Can you help with this, please?

    "themes" and "labels" are not in your tag cloud.There may be some delay.

    @sandy_diigo This is still giving me problems. I have quite a few tags showing in the tag cloud which no longer have associated bookmarks, and yet I'm unable to delete them. For example, the tags "themes" and "labels", the two I mentioned previously , are *still* appearing in my tag cloud. How long a delay should I expect? And will I have the ability to delete other tags which no longer have associated bookmarks?
  • sandy_diigo
     
    Don't worry. I am further looking into this issue.
  • sandy_diigo
     
    Now it is right. Please check weather you can delete a tag.

    Hi. I'm also having trouble deleting tags! Thank you for your help.

    @sandy_diigo Nope, I'm still having problems. For example, the tag "firefox:toolbar" has no bookmarks associated with it (I've just deleted them all), but the tag still appears in my tag cloud here: http://www.diigo.com/cloud/btocher
