    I really enjoy using the "unread" feature of Diigo - bookmarking something to check out later is one of my primary uses of bookmarks. However, I think this feature could be more cleanly handled. I have two suggestions that I feel would make this feature even more useful:

    1) Toolbar improvement: Add a "Next Unread" button to the toolbar, preferably as a primary button or else as a link in the Diigo menu. Bonus points: If there are no more unread bookmarks, this could change to "Next Recommended". :) (or to put it a different way: right now the toolbar is very focused on bookmarking pages, it would be good to see a little focus on finding and reading bookmarks.)

    2) Option to not share unread bookmarks: If this option is selected, then bookmarks won't show up in my public or friend bookmarks until they have been marked as read. Often I bookmark something just to check it out, and after reading it decide to delete the bookmark. This way, it never 'makes it to the surface' until I think it is good enough.

    Even without this, Diigo is still a fantastic application in all regards. Thanks!!

    Same for me. Even though Diigo supports a read/unread flag, I'm using the "ReadItLater" AddOn for Firefox because the handling in Diigo is too hidden. I'd like to have a "ReadItLater" button integrated in the Diigo toolbar, and also a tab for the unread bookmarks in the Diigo sidebar.

    Otherwise, yes, Diigo is great.

    I was just told that unread bookmarks are actually available via the Diigo menu. But I still find it confusing that they are missing in the sidebar and the Diigo toolbar button. Also, the "next unread" button in the toolbar would be handy.

    You can access unread bookmark in Diigo top menu button ( the one between Bookmarks and Tools ). However, we will add an unread button on the toolbar according to the suggestion you and Chris made.

    Thanks. Maybe you can also add it as a checkbox or tab or something in the sidebar, so that you can also get a list of unread bookmarks for a certain tag.

    Thanks, it's much appreciated!
