    Hi Todd,

    I too am seeking a way to sort my Groups and my Lists alphabetically.

    Unfortunately, I have not found a way to do this and this GREATLY LIMITS the utility of Groups and Lists...trying to find something in an unordered list is a PITA.

    Todd, you are not alone. If you have found a solution please let me know.

Search, Advanced Search, Date Search?? - 83 views

date help query question search search-feature sort-searching
  • Daniel Eldridge
     
    I just don't get it; my bookmarks show me the DATE on which they were added, but there's no way to search by date?!@?

    I'd like to be able to see the bookmarks I added, yesterday, last week, last month, etc.

    Sure, I'd like to be able to see bookmarks I added between any two dates;

    Sure I'd love to see a Simile Timeline of my bookmarks;

    Sure I'd love to see a calendar view of my bookmarks, a la my cheapo digital camera;

    Sure I'd love to see graphs and charts of a variety of attributes--over time.

    Am I missing some existing features??? I just found the advanced search today--I don't use the sidebar and I think it's ONLY available in the sidebar.

    Thanks for your help and clarification,

    Hi Joel,

    I agree with you that the "My Bookmarks" page is crowded; but the problem is that the "tabs" are really just searches. I hope you can change the UI so that the tabs do more than just perform canned queries.

    Have you seen the SIMILE projects @ MIT? I've noticed that some of these projects have graduated and are now on code.google.com.

    How about providing an RDF version of Diigo Data and then providing a suite of services around that core...from a semantic media wiki to a simple view like this:
    http://simile.mit.edu/exhibit/examples/senate/senate.html

    What do you think?

Search bookmarks by DATE - 53 views

    Is it possible to see all of the bookmarks I created on a particular date?

    Is it possible to see all bookmarks modified, or touched, between two dates?

    I think it was possible to do this, but perhaps I am dreaming...I hope I am _not_ dreaming, however.

    I have created a new group that DOES NOT appear in this list; is something wrong. do I have to set something?

    I can only see five groups plus the "-----------" entry.

    Nope, no change post-restart.

    I have am a member of seven groups...I have created six of these seven groups.

    But I only see FIVE groups in the Share To drop-down.

    Additionally, one of my groups names contains an ampersand--&--and that group appears in the drop-down but only the part of the name that is to the left of the Ampersand.

    Is there any way to RENAME a group? I can't find one.

    I am running version 1.0.2007101800 of the Toolbar and yes, I am still having problem with Syncing groups...I only see the same five groups in the drop-down.

    and for Group name editing....

    I CANNOT edit the "Group Overview."
    NB: These groups are private groups. I don't have any public groups; so hold on and I'll make one.

    The problems I am having with SYNCING not working is also with PRIVATE groups.

    What is GROUP DISPLAY NAME?

    I can only edit:attributes in GROUP DETAILS:
    Group Details[ Edit ]
    Description: This is a test of PUBLIC group management v. PRIVATE group management.
    Interests: public,testing
    Category: Computers & Internet
    Privacy Mode: Public - all can view
    Join Mode: Open - anyone can just join

    I CANNOT edit any attributes in GROUP OVERVIEW:
    Group Overview
    Creator: dme212
    Group Name: Dan's Public Group
    Create Date: 2008-03-06 08:31:32
    URL: http://groups.diigo.com/groups/PublicDan

    However, I have not invited anyone to this group...does Group Overview become editable when group contains >1 member?

    --Dan

    ps/I noticed HUGE inconsistency when I logged in...my username is Dme212 and dme212 is unrecognized, however, the group creator is: dme212!!!! But you already knew this, right?

    Signed out....signed in....noticed that username's are Initial Uppercase...
    Signing out and then signing in has had not impact on sync of names.

case-sensitive tags - any chance of it happening? - 381 views

discussion tag case CamelCase case-sensitive help suggestion

    Has this discussion been moved to a new group?

    If so, what is it?

    In any case (no pun intended) please note my vote IN FAVOR of maintaining the case of the characters entered by the user.

    Isn't there some maxim of User Interface Design that states: Do Not Change What the User has entered--unless, of course, you're the Post Office.

    As for being difficult to maintain the proper case for other bookmarking services...Oh What a PITA--that Pain In The Ass--it is to be a leader. Worst case maintain a field for each foreign service with which you support import/export and keep this field in the appropriate case.

Favicon missing on Group, Blog, and Forum Page (this page too!) - 26 views

bug noted broken favicon missing blog
  • Daniel Eldridge
     
    The pretty, and easy to notice, stylized i's are missing from a number of diigo pages:

    - Forum (this page)
    - Groups
    - Diggo Blog
    - Help pages, but this is an instance of the Forum.

    I find the favicons very useful as they help me quickly and easily identify and locate tabs in FF.

    --Dan
  • Daniel Eldridge
     
    As of now--favicons are present on all pages EXCEPT the Blog.

    Did someone do something?
