Superfish risk in Diigo Chrome extensions - 35 views

Superfish Awesome_Screenshot
  • davido T
    I was surprised to read that Diigo apparently included Superfish in its in Awesome Screenshot extension, after reading about the criticism of Superfish as a potential security hole at

    I love Diigo and I understand that you need revenue to survive. I'd just like you to clarify whether Superfish is still bundled with any of Diigo's extensions and if so, whether that introduces a security risk to users, as described in the Forbes article.

  • davido T
    Yes, it's listed in Awesome Screenshot, with opt-out instructions. It's great that Diigo is transparent about using it--and based on that, I hope that the lack of mention in their other extensions means that it isn't used.

    Maybe Superfish doesn't pose the risk, when embedded in a Chrome extension, that it apparently does when embedded with some Lenovo laptops (link above). That's what I'm hoping Diigo can answer for us.

mashup with page-change monitor like Site Delta or Watch That Page? - 11 views

monitor changed_pages suggestion mash

  • davido T
    a feature suggestion: I use SiteDelta, a Firefox add-in to watch pages for changes. So I basically have a growing list of pages to be watched. But they are uncategorized. So I also tag them with Diigo.

    How useful would it be to merge these functions, with a checkbox to 'watch this page' as I bookmark it? Very much like your own user forum feature that sends an email when pages are updated. (Though Site Delta goes farther, allowing me to specify *regions* of a page to watch)

    It would certainly simplify my life.

[News] How to transfer your Furl links - 276 views

diigo furl news faq

    I used to simultaneously bookmark to Furl, from Diigo. Is there any reason for me to transfer those links back to Diigo? I doubt it, but just curious.

multiple customized search at once? text export of customized search list? - 19 views

customizedsearch suggestion
started by davido T on 08 Feb 09 no follow-up yet
  • davido T
    I'd like to suggest that your excellent Custom Search would allow a search of more than one of the engines with a single click. From the context menu, the top or bottom item in a search category could be 'search all of these'--each search would open in a tab.

CSV export problem - 42 views

started by davido T on 17 Oct 08 no follow-up yet
  • davido T
    I just exported to CSV format, opened the csv file in Excel. All looked well, until I began scrolling down a bit from the top, where I found highlights in the Title column. It seems to be a problem with multi-line highlights breaking into many cells. Any fix or workaround possible?

how does "search bookmarks" (and Advanced Search) work? - 138 views

advanced_search search-feature stemming wildcards boolean help
  • davido T
    I've been looking in vain for a guide to Diigo's internal search feature. Am I missing a help file or guide somewhere, similar to Google's, on how to:

    -search using a partial tag
    like job* to search for all tags containing job. I've experimented but can't find a way.

    -search for phrases in basic search box
    I see the option in Advanced, but in basic search, putting words in quotes (like google) doesn't work, unfortunately.

    I love you guys, but frankly I'm annoyed... these are important features!

    I hope these are features that used to work and will work again, once v3 matures.
  • davido T
    thanks, Joel.

    It's a shame there's no way to search substrings/partial tags in V3. That overly limits bookmarks returned, in my opinion, since it would be easy to bring up all partial matches, then allow for filtering out using the + tags feature.

    Plus it messes up my system of tagging library-style, like this: "jobs--san_francisco". I can't search "jobs" and get all my "jobs--" type tags

    Maybe using ~jobs (or jobs*) to signal partial matches would allow for advanced users to do this, without confusing others.

    are there any exceptions to that? or any part of cached pages that are *not* cached?

    I second that. If nothing else, maybe there must be some scripting app out there that can periodically go get a new export. I just don't know the app ;-)

changing background color loses highlights in Firefix - 44 views

accessability firefox highlighting accessibility
started by davido T on 04 Jun 08 no follow-up yet
  • davido T
    I like to have a gray background in Firefox, instead of blaring white for Google and other pages. I'm using a plugin called Accessibar to do that. But when I do, Diigo highlights don't show up!

    Any workaround you can think of to have my gray background and highlights too?

pdf file highlighting? - 1585 views

adobe_acrobat pdf suggestion
started by davido T on 30 May 08 no follow-up yet
  • davido T
    There was discussion a year ago about pdf support--being able to highlight pdf files and search the highlights in diigo and/or making Acrobat highlights into diigo highlights. That would be SO useful to me.

    A workaround I use is to convert to html with pdfDownload or google's cache feature, but this has its problems.

    Any chance of a dedicated annotate-pdf feature coming along?

CSV backup shows no annotations - 115 views

  • davido T
    Unfortunately I got none of my highlights, using csv and rss a few minutes ago. This used to work actually. I have a csv export from Sept 07 that includes highlights. I hope this functionality will come back, because I'm with cuttingedge--it's nerve-wracking to wonder if my time spent annotating will be available in the future.

How to back up bookmarks? - 580 views

    hi Maggie, is there a help topic somewhere comparing the various export formats, what they include, etc?

    a belated thanks!

    I see that csv and rss include the most info. I'll try both.

    I'd love for my diigo bookmarks to be searchable by Google Desktop, so they'd pop-up as results and remind me I'd bookmarked something. Maybe by exporting and indexing, that will happen, but an auto-updating method would be even better.

features request: diigo tools useful for pdfs on the hard drive too, universally apply... - 65 views

  • davido T
    Yes, support for local files would be great! All sorts of local files can be viewed in a browser, and it would be so great to tag, highlight, etc. them!

    keep up the good work
