Change Group URL? - 34 views

    My original need was similar: I had setup a group for a particular course, then the courses got renumbered and the URL for the group reflecting the wrong (confusing) URL. That was years ago and no response; I've since given up Diigo groups.

Chrome Extension "Send to Blog" - 20 views

    I see the Chrome extension has many sharing options-- all but the one I need the most: the Send to Blog function. Any idea if/when that will be included?

City Brights: Howard Rheingold : Twitter Literacy (I refuse to make up a Twittery name... - 4 views

    "Sure, Twitter is banal and trivial, full of self-promotion and outright spam. So is the Internet. The difference between seeing Twitter as a waste of time or as a powerful new community amplifier depends entirely on how you look at it - on knowing how to look at it."

Blog this? - 5 views

  • Chris Lott
     
    Where has the function gone to send a particular bookmark/page to one's blog on the fly? I can setup the blog(s) in my tools area but I can't find anything other than the daily/weekly blog posting mechanism

    I guess this is also referred to as "send to blog" -- which I don't see anywhere?
  • Chris Lott
     
    UPDATE: I see it is in the "more actions" tab-- wasn't there at one point a way to do it by right-clicking on a page and/or from the toolbar? Is there any other way besides going back to one's bookmarks?

Continued Problems: my tagged items empty - 37 views

  • Chris Lott
     
    30 minutes ago as part of a class demo I added some bookmarks using the tag 'yay' -- yet when I go to the page for "my bookmarks tagged yay" (http://www.diigo.com/user/chrisl/yay?tab=250) it lists nothing. Same thing for all of my students who are new Diigo users... none of their tag pages show any items. It's very confusing (and frustrating)
  • Chris Lott
     
    I guess it's resolved if it's deemed acceptable to have to wait many hours for a new bookmark to show up on one's own tag page. And I noted that this happened whether the tag was a newly created one (like the 'yay' tag I used for demo purposes) or one I've used for years.

    Is the "resolved" status meant to indicate that this problem is being addressed (this happens regularly) in general or just that it's resolved in this particular case... I knew *eventually* the items would show up :)

    Thanks much, Graham... that clarifies things quite nicely!

    The "Create a List" link is present but selecting it does nothing either at the time or upon submission of the bookmarking dialog.

limit search to specific user's bookmarks - 45 views

    Sorry, I'm letting my frustration get the better of me. Here's some of the context: I teach classes in (and using) social media and software. I teach (and teach with) Diigo-- it has so much more (and more potential) than Delicious... but it feels like an exception when I go to share something beyond the most basic with my classes and it works. Examples from the past: adding bookmarks that then don't appear for hours or days when browsing by that tag, RSS feeds from various areas other than the main bookmark stream, very inconsistent search results (including being unable to find bookmarks in our own stream we can browse to and see), private bookmarks sometimes showing up and sometimes not in searches and browsing by tag (when logged in), etc. It just starts to get painful!

    Anyway, my primary goal beyond the basics is always to make Diigo more valuable by using it as a source for other activities/sites. In general, that activity benefits from a strong API and search. In this case I'm trying to allow users to bring a selected set of tagged bookmarks together to feed into another community. So, they would be tagging items with one of three tags. That stream would be combined for redisplay on their community site. I can invent various aggregate tags, but that skews the display of tags and makes sub-combinations difficult. And then I can't link back to an aggregate stream either!

    This is just one example... simple boolean support in both the search box(es) and the API would be very useful when trying to expand on use of Diigo beyond relatively simple browsing in the main GUI...

toolbar "filters" a bug and a suggestion - 16 views

  • Chris Lott
     
    The toolbar filters/smart folders are immensely useful, however:

    1) a few times a day my smart folders disappear and I can only get them back by logging in or accessing and then exiting the toolbar properties.

    2) Because real estate is precious, it would be great if the smart folders could be accessed as a drop-down menu rather than having to have all of them horizontally listed...
  • Chris Lott
     
    Thanks for the idea of using the RSS feed as a kind of smart filter... very cool. I stand behind my request that smart folders be available as a drop-down though :)

    The disappearing smart folders problem appears to have been fixed!

  • Chris Lott
     
    Wow, thanks for getting into details with this suggestion.

    I'm not sure what the "manage" function refers to... if it is a place where one can create new filters as well as edit existing, then the simplicity is appealing. But in the spirit of the way the toolbar operates in general, the second (http://pastebin.ca/1537496) makes intuitive sense.

    I agree that there is a potential to descend into toolbar menu madness with drop-downs, but as this is a feature that is intended to allow users an arbitrary number of additions...

Public Sticky? - 81 views

started by Jeremiah Hackett on 17 Feb 09 no follow-up yet

    To drift a bit: I have felt really good about how Diigo is working in class, far better than delicious ever did despite my own dedication to the latter for so long. The superset of social features (particularly the communities) on top of the annotations-- really makes clear how useful Diigo can be and how social bookmarking can be more than just remembering links. In those terms, I am really behind Diigo.

    On the downside, there are issues that make me consider going back to Delicious, at least for a while: continually broken search, lost advanced search, and no immediate way to search one's own "stuff" (shouldn't that be an option right on every users own pages?, broken watchlist feeds, and inaccessible registration (I have one blind student who still can't register and after some initial responses Diigo has gone silent-- their contact form also uses an inaccessible captcha).

    It's be nice to see some notion of a plan from Diigo as to what is on the menu for improvement.

    Of course, the relative size of Diigo is pretty tiny. While we are all using Diigo in class, I will be integrating Delicious into the class as a search tool just because the population difference is staggering. Search for Alaska on diigo and you get ~400 results. On Delicious 26000 ... that chicken and egg conundrum of the size of user base is what kept me with Delicious for so long!

Urgent Q: Captcha and Accessibility - 29 views

  • Chris Lott
     
    I've recently switched my classes to Diigo instead of delicious and have an immediate issue: the captchas on Diigo don't appear to have any alternative for the blind/visually impaired.

    I personally find this unacceptable. Google and many other sites have alternatives... can Diigo please provide one? For educators trying to use Diigo this represents a real problem because of ADA requirements, etc.
  • Chris Lott
     
    I replied backchannel to the Diigo team with suggestions. the most obvious would be the ReCaptcha system that a lot of people are using. Really, there are many captcha systems out there that are relatively proven and the systems are either available or easy to replicate. I'm disappointed that the backchannel conversation has been dropped. I still have a blind student unable to signup and there's no good reason why that should be.

    It would be great if the enhanced linkroll creator had an option to not include any stylesheet, giving the end user complete control over the appearance...
