    It shows that it won't work and has it completely disabled. Is there any where I can download 3.1.5.5 again, which did work?

excluding tags from search results - 240 views

question request searching tags syntax boolean help
  • Ellen H.
     
    Is there any way to exclude tags from a search? The more I use diigo, the more I find I need this--for instance, bookmarks from tag A but not tag B (ie, not also tagged B--to get a list of items tagged A, Tagged A and C, etc., but not A and B). The only option I can find in the advanced search is to exclude the word B everywhere--but I want some pages with the word B in them--just not if they are tagged B. Am I making sense?

    If there is not currently a way to do this, I really hope one is implemented--as I said, it would be really useful.

    Thank you so much! You really helped me out. I don't know how I missed the fact that we coulod use boolean operators. ^^;

Help!! Diigo toolbar is acting wonky! - 69 views

bug toolbar
started by Ellen H. on 10 May 08 no follow-up yet

    Okay, I have no clue what is going on and I really need some help here.

    I haven't installed any new extensions or messed with the settings or anything, but all of a sudden the toolbar has gone wild! (I use Firefox 2.0.0.14 and the latest toolbar version)

    Errors:

    1) I cannot see any of bookmarks or friends in the sidebar--bookmark field is blank, and friends tab says I have no friends, even though I do.

    2) I am unable to signout of the toolbar through the toolbar, or use any other aspect of the toolbar--view my bookmarks, groups, etc. Doing any of those things gives me a 502 Bad Request page. However, I can still do all these things from the website, and if I sign out of the website, I sign out of the toolbar as well.

    Signing out and then in does not help, nor does restarting Firefox, nor does uninstalling and reinstalling the toolbar, nor does restarting the computer.

    A few days ago, it was even worse--the same errors I had now, only instead of the 502 error, I was getting 400 Bad Request, and every time a page loaded, any page, I got a pop-up that said to enter my username and password for 'restricted at http://preview.diigo.com. However, entering my username and password did nothing. However, that went away on it's own after a day or so (I was really busy at the time so I didn't get a chance to complain before it went away). But now it's doing this new thing!!

    What do I do? I need my Diigo sidebar!

Private highlight showing up on RSS feeds - 61 views

    When I subscribe to my bookmarks via RSS, ALL the annotations on the public bookmarks show up in my reader--including the annotations I have marked private. Serious problem for me.

    Any chance of this getting fixed soon?

    I would like to know a little more about this as well. That way I could just type in the search I wanted instead of having to go into the advanced search window.

    And is there any way to exclude tags from a search? The more I use diigo, the more I find I need this--for instance, bookmarks from tag A but not tag B (ie, not also tagged B--to get a list of items tagged A, Tagged A and C, etc., but not A and B).

    That doesn't work either. I don't mind waiting till it's fixed or anything, just wanted to let you know that the workarounds aren't working.

    I completely agree here. They aren't my favorites, and I'm not comfortable displaying them labeled as such.

    Like you have the bookmarks tab and the friends tab? I think that is what he is talking about. Might be useful.

    I for one am totally against screenshots--they'll make pages load slower and take up screen space, making pages feel cluttered. If you can't tell what a page is by your tags and annotations, then you really need to tag and annotate better, IMHO.

Toolbar Search buttons - 51 views

question search toolbar
  • Ellen H.
     
    I recently tried the customized search feature, and I absolutely fell in love with it.

    There's just one problem--I don't want the highlight and word buttons after the search bar. I don't use them, and they take up valuable space. I am using Firefox 2.0.0.13. , so I figured it wouldn't be a problem. It's really easy to customize toolbars, so I just dragged the icons into the little holding area. Easy.

    Except every time I use the search bar by typing in the box, they come back! Then I have to go to customize and remove them again. Which works--until the next time I type in a search. This doesn't happen when I use the context menu to search.

    Is there anything I can do to stop this behavior? I really like the diigo search bar, and I don't want to switch back to Firefox's built in one, but this is buggin' the heck out of me!
  • Ellen H.
     
    Thanks for your response! Hopefully that deleting the input trick will make it more manageable. :)

    Thanks! *blush*
    Believe me, I'm getting everybody I can into this--Diigo rocks. We will take over the internet, one delicious user at a time!

    Question-why are both instances of "There is a quick tip for you when you want to refresh manually. Leave the tags input empty and click the "Filter" button." highlighted when I only highlighted the first? Only one annotation shows up on the sidebar and such, but both instances are show a highlight and give me the highlight pop-up menu on mouseover.

diigo drop-down menu in main firefox toolbar - 94 views

  • Ellen H.
     
    I agree with what everyone else is saying--not only is it not intuitive for certain things to be up on the file menu, but it would be much faster and easier to access them from the toolbar.

    I am also loving V3. You guys did a great job!

    > We will consider it. However, if you remove it, it's not easy to access many useful links there, for example, your unread bookmarks.
  • Ellen H.
     
    Hopefully instead of just making it optional, you can add the drop down to the toolbar itself. :)

    Whichever way you do, it won't matter to users who use the context menu only.

    When I subscribe to my own bookmarks by rss, the annotations are included just fine--but only the public bookmarks. However, even the private annotations show up--actually a bit of a problem now that I think of it. But they do show up on RSS, if you subscribe.

Avatar questions - 54 views

avatar question
  • Ellen H.
     
    So, I am a bit confused about what exactly we are allowed to use as an avatar image. Currently the page says this: Do not upload a photo containing cartoons, celebrities, nudity, artwork or copyrighted image.

    So, what it seems to mean is that I cannot upload anything but an actual picture of myself, since I can't upload any cartoons or artwork. Surely this can't be correct?

    Also, what is the aspect ratio for avatars? I would hate to upload something and it get all squished or stretched.
  • Ellen H.
     
    @Soulgrind R
    Thanks for answering my questions. :) You're right--it does seem a little strict.

    @Joel Liu
    Ahh, that would definitely make more sense. But what about things that are said by their creators to be free for use as avatars or for general reuse? Do those fall under the copyrighted image category?
  • Ellen H.
     
    Ok, Thanks. :)

Tag list in new topic window? - 244 views

feature request
  • Ellen H.
     
    I was wondering if the tagcloud for the forum should perhaps also be featured on the new topic page, so that one can see which tags are used the most. I know that there is an autocomplete feature when you start typing tags in, but that doesn't really help me when I'm trying to figure out what tags are appropriate and/or in common use in the forum I'm posting in. Who wants to be using the tag 'request' when everyone else is using 'requests'? Should I use 'pic', 'picture', 'pictures', 'image', 'images', etc.

    It would also be nice if I could click on the links of said tagcloud to automatically add those tags to the post I am composing, but that is much less high on the scale of usefulness.
  • Ellen H.
     
    Thanks. :)

Can't highlight fewer than five characters? Useless. - 80 views

chinese highlight useless
  • Ellen H.
     
    Why on earth would all the occurrences of that character be highlighted? When I highlight a word, not all occurrences of that word are highlighted--why would a character be any different?

    BTW, there was no need to be rude. And when you are learning a language, generally the meaning of words is what you are interested in--not learning wrote sentences for certain situations.

    Finally, I second the suggestion to change the character limits on highlighting. I, too, have problems with the character limits on clippings--though mine are generally that I can't go over a certain limit, rather that under.

    Seems like you guys have a lot on your to-do list! Thanks for all your hard work. :)

Highlighting issues - 62 views

highlight highlights nestled overlap stickynote
started by Peter Roberts on 15 Dec 07 no follow-up yet
  • Ellen H.
     
    I don't know about the second question, but as to the first, I think I can help. Warning: I have not yet tried this with sticky notes, merely clipping text. You have to highlight and clip the smaller sections (inside the bigger section) first. After that, you just highlight the whole block. When you go to your my bookmarks page, you will see it as two separate clippings. Very useful!

    Now that I think of it, if nothing else, you should be able to add sticky notes separately from your my bookmarks page. Or you can try adding the sticky note to the small bit before clipping the large bit and seeing if that works as well.
