Share bookmarks to other services gone? - 92 views

  • Daniel Gauthier

    Did i miss out on something?
    Has the share bookmark option to other bookmarking services been discontinued?
    I can't see it in the options so perhaps it was moved elsewhere?

    Hi Joel,

    Think i'll go back to bed!
    Now i understand why your avatar shows you scratching your head.

    Wish i could delete this thread. Sorry!!!

Search feature within Toolbar error message - 71 views

search toolbar
  • Daniel Gauthier
    I know it's Monday but this is the error message i'm getting when trying to search from within the toolbar:

    Sorry, the page you requested was not found.
    Please check the URL for proper spelling and capitalization. If you're having trouble locating a destination on Diigo, try visiting the Diigo home page

    No problems like this from searching within sidebar.
    Have latest 3.1.3
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Later on today i've tried again using Portable with Diigo installed and same issues came around.

    Also tried regular browser again and it was the same scenario as originally posted.

    Nobody else experiencing this problem ?
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Good show Joel!

    And... thanks! It's working just fine now.

    I also forgot to mention that when it works properly, i modify the toolbar to have the search feature always on top within Firefox's main toolbar. This way i don't have to keep Diigo's toolbar always open. More viewing room as we await for an eventual Diigo search engine for the Firefox search box. Hint! hint!

Blog this to new Blogger inoperative - 58 views

  • Daniel Gauthier

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    I have a "new Blogger" account marked as "valid" but it fails to post (an error message comes around).
    A WordPress account also marked as "valid" does not have this problem.

    So far no response to my post here so i'm starting to feel like everyone else's Blogger account setup is okay.

    In the mean time I've opted to use ScribeFire extension as an alternative.
  • Daniel Gauthier

    I just tried a moment ago and it worked!
    Had been using ScribeFire extension for Firefox in the meantime.

    Worse comes to worse, send an email to support.

Furl tags not being imported - 80 views

furl import tag
  • Daniel Gauthier

    I know that when i bookmark with Diigo to other accounts everything goes fine except for Furl.
    They don't recognize the tags that we give with Diigo.
    Can it be a vice-versa situation? Like tit for tat?
  • ...2 more comments...
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Oh, i remember writing in to Furl a few years and they did eventually answer.
    They're not the only ones that seem to be or are really stagnant.
    Spurl seems to be going nowhere. No more support, no more plenty of things except for the bookmarking feature.

    Diigo is by far the most responsive and innovative at the present time!
  • Daniel Gauthier

    Seeing that you tried opening an account with or another, did you try all the options available in Furl, like to the ZIP archive one?
  • Daniel Gauthier

    Never give up!

    I just went over to Blinklist and they have a specific Furl import feature via their XML file.

  • Daniel Gauthier

    Was just thinking about you!
    Glad you found a workaround to your problem. Phew!
    Manga? Isn't that a fruit of sorts?

    If only my English and French were at par, then perhaps i would pick up some Japanese!

Care2 - Suggestion to merge with Diigo - 23 views

care2 diigo group toolbar
  • Daniel Gauthier
 as a non-profit organization IMHO, could invariably profit from Diigo's bookmarking service and vice versa. How? Why?

    Both are group orientated services that have things the other doesn't yet.
    Diigo doesn't have an email service.
    Care2 doesn't have a comment window for pages visited.

    I'm just starting to scratch the surface here, but I'm sure if you take time to look at what both services offer, there could be a complimentary way to make an enhanced and unique toolbar that could make something rather unique on the web. What do you think?
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Thanks Maggie for that article.
    I'm just starting to get into their web site and toolbar so it's easy for you to understand how little i know about this venture at this point in time. From the looks of things, they are doing an excellent job. I'm sure their funds are being used in a positive manner. Their website offers quite an array of places for people to lend a hand.

    Wish i could speak or learn Japanese.
    Perhaps someone could offer an abridged rendering of the Japanese comments in Diigo.
    Just a thought!

    Anyways, we do appreciate all the help that is offered here at DF!

    When trying to sign in via toolbar, we are taken to Diigo's website and must click on sign in again to try to sign in. Could the Diigo Toolbar 3 perhaps include one less sign in link?

How to load "my bookmarks" search in Firefox Sidebar - 69 views

bookmarks firefox sidebar
  • Daniel Gauthier
    It's not the ideal situation but hopefully still useful as we wait for a promised Sidebar.

    Basically, just go to your bookmarks page, click on the "more" option next to search box, bookmark it to your bookmarks toolbar then right click on that link and tick the load in sidebar box on the left hand corner.

    You will want to drag your sidebar a bit in but it shouldn't hopefully invade your view too much.

    The suspense is killing me Maggie!

    The actual toolbar and service are quite stable.
    I don't know what version 3 looks like (sent a request to be part of beta team the other week but i guess they have enough players) nor what the new features will be but i'm sure we'll find many pleasant surprises.

    That i can understand Maggie, and i do believe you have a good point there.
    Fact is, basic search for example is much speedier in Ma.gnolia or Yahoo Bookmarks.
    But, all things considered, i can live with it.
    Not sure how people on dial up feel about it (if they're still are out there).

    Québec City.

    Just did a few searches and things went just fine.
    Experience shows me that insome parts of the day webpages come in quicker than others.
    It's early a.m. here so I'll try a bit later throughout the day to see if there are any major differences.

    J'ai parlé à travers mon chapeau?
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Diigo Team and users,

    Me thinks an apology is in the order of things.
    Have just tested again the search feature and i can't believe how quick the results come around!
    I can't figure it out... it's just mind boggling!
    Isn't it always like that? You want to show a point to someone, your computer fails, the connection is slow etc. etc.?

    Oh well! My appreciation and confidence for Diigo and support team has just been strengthened.

    Just sent in a link to a video clip where i noticed a Diigo window used in the presentation. Hope this can help me to make up some way for my all to quick posting here...


    -p.s. having reflected a bit on the reason why i posted here about this speed issue, i recall many months ago having tried to perform searches on Diigo and found it to be much slower than it is today. At that time i decided to add bookmarks to other services and use them to make my searches. I kept using Diigo because i enjoyed the different options available, the easy way to add/edit existing bookmarks and... the Support team that showed an uncommon interest in helping users out.

    Afraid not Joel.
    Here's the message i get:

    (blogger service error, please try again later.)

    Double checked config ; account setup is validly acknowledged but the above error message shows up all the time.

    Wonder why it wouldn't work even if config showed okay?

    Still trying to figure that one out.
    If my Blog i.d. was setup properly and accepted with Blogger account name and p.w. what else was i missing?

    Sorry for my misunderstanding, it may be too early but i'm not much of a geek.
  • Daniel Gauthier
    joel wrote:
    > With one blogger account , you can have several blogs.

    -That i can understand.

    Blog ID parameter was used to identify the different blogs you may have.


    Your previous blog-this setting in Diigo had the right Blogger account but wrong Blog ID, so your account was valid but you fail to post blog.

    -If it had wrong Blog ID, why did it not post somewhere just the same?

    We found the problem and changed the Blog ID to the right one.

    -That's what counts!

    -Thanks again Joel for looking into this as it may happen to others someday.

    Perhaps an extension to the Firefox search box?
    Furl has one.
    Or else, an extra option within toolbar box to search "my bookmarks" directly?

  • Daniel Gauthier
    Does adding a new bookmark (with multiple tags) add more than one bookmark to "local bookmarks" or is just that one with multiple tags (huh?!) ?
  • Daniel Gauthier
    joel wrote:
    > Ever tag becomes a folder in local bookmark system, so more than one bookmark is added to "local bookmarks"

    I was kind of hoping that wasn't the answer.

    Thanks anyway Joel!
  • Daniel Gauthier

    Actually i was hoping to have only one bookmark added with multiple tags.
    Why? Well, basically the smaller your Firefox bookmark load the less time it takes to start up.
    I have a 400k file with a little over 1,000 bookmarks.
    2,000 it seems make it a bit huge.
    Anything over is too much.

    If ever you need to export the file, an option would have to be setup to have just the first tags as primary i.d.
    But that would be a browser issue i guess right?

    Also, searching through Firefox is way faster than any online bookmarking service.
    Ctrl+B your bookmarks are instantly called up and you know the rest.

Diigolet also works for AVANT browser - 9 views

    In a previous post here, i reported that Diigolet failed to work with AVANT browser.
    After a few post at their own forum we finally found a workaround.

    You are quite welcome Joel!

    From recent tests, Diigolet works pretty with any popular browser that doesn't have it's own toolbar yet !Have also tested: Slimbrowser, k-Meleon, Maxthon2, Opera...

    Flexibility is a must in the Social Bookmarking arena right?

    Pardon my ignorance, but how do we perform searches from our bookmarks from within the toolbar?
    I mean, i can't see any other way than to go directly to my bookmarks webpage.
    Silly question but i must confess, i've been saving bookmarks to Diigo while i still prefer using browser search for speed.

    It's been a few months already, but if my memory serves me right, it was regards to the Notebook that was
    set to "public" by default instead of "private". Hence, your data was made practically readily available to their powerful search engine and thus, to any curious surfer.
