change "replace tags" to "add tags" as default behavior (under more actions) - 52 views

suggestion resolved duplicate tagedit feature request tag-related tag

    when selecting multiple links, and pressing "edit tags", the current default is that the new tag REPLACES all the tags of the selected links.
    so if you don't change it to "add these tags", you will loose all the individual tags that you saved for those URLs.

    I suggest that the default behavior will be changed to "add these tags"

offline bookmarks and highlights not synced with diigo when going online - 84 views

bug mobile-office offline sync
  • eyal matsliah
     
    I'm connected via mobile phone over GPRS, and do most of my reading while offline.
    I've just discovered that all the pages I've bookmarked and the text that I've highlighted were NOT saved to my diigo account.
    i first thought that it happend because I closed the firefox tab where I was reading and diigo-ing , but the problem persists even if I keep the tab open.

    a related problem is that after I highlight text and enter the title and tags in the window that appears, when I want to highlight text again, it is not highlighted.
    I need to press the diigo button to bring up the diigo window, press submit or close, and only then I can highlight.

    i've installed the latest version, but no luck.
    the problems are even bigger -
    some bookmarks are not saved even when being constantly online
    some highlights are saved while others are lost.
    sometimes the title and tags of the bookmark default to the title of the page and blank tags
    even when I press "submit and close" and get a "bookmark saved" notification, sometimes it isn't !

    maggie ? oliver ? anyone ?

    hi joel ,

    I only connect via gprs, but I don't think that the network layer has ( or should have ) anything to do with the application layer.

    can you reproduce the problem over normal network ?
    it's basically:
    - disconnect from network
    - highlight and bookmark a page you had previously opened in your browser
    - - reconnect to network
    - reload the page - bookmark lost together with tags, highlights, comments, etc.

    I also lost bookmarks and highlights in open pages when my mozilla browser crashed.

    it's a bit frustrating. there's this one page which I've highlighted 3 times, and always some of my later highlights are lost.

    on a related note, diigo website is very very slow to load compared to all other websites that I access.
    maybe this is part of the problem ?

    thanks,

    e.

    hi joel,

    connecting from an island in south thailand.

    average ping is around 1 second
    I actually get similar times for other websites, such as google.com

    hope you get this issue solved soon.

    thanks !

    I discovered Diigo two months ago, became an avid user and a self-proclaimed product evangelist.

    Diigo for me is the knowledge-management solution I was looking for.

    What sets diigo apart is that it handles *Knowledge*, rather than mere links.

    It is the ONLY solution that lets me *permanently* highlight and annotate specific text on a webpage, which is then saved to my diigo profile.

    Diigo complements the mental process in which a sentence "jumps" at you, and you make a mental note about it. By highlighting the sections I deem important, I better understand and remember what I read. I believe there is scientific proof for this.

    As time goes by, I'm building a repository of all the important Knowledge I find on the net, which I can easily manage, tag, retrieve and aggregate.

    Regarding the 'social' aspect:
    Diigo provides me immediate personal benefits, and I can then share this knowledge with others of my choosing, and follow what other individuals or groups are finding on the net. Not just the pages(links) they are browsing, but the actual sections that they deem important, and their reactions to it.

    I think that Diigo is not only for 'researchers'.
    Most of us conduct some sort of research whenever we read a news article, shop for an appliance, view photos or videos, or read a blogpost.

    Although I appreciate the other services, and might occasionally use some of them, I find that Diigo already incorporates and combines MOST of their important features, in a way that is more robust and scalable.

    In order to facilitate the transition to the new group-forums, I suggest:
    1. disabling new posts at the old forum
    2. putting a link at the old forum to the new group forum;
    3. at every specific forum (features, bugs, etc.) to the corresponding group-forum;
    4. and from several important posts to corresponding group posts in the group-forum
    5. import some selected forum threads to the group-forum

can't change sticky-note privacy - fault or feature - 36 views

bug privacy
  • eyal matsliah
     
    The privacy level for a sticky-note appears as "private" and can't be changed, so anyone watching my highlights can't see my notes.

    It IS possible to share a stick-note with a diigo group, which is a nice feature;
    But I'd like to be able to let the whole world see them , regardless of being a diigo user or a member of a particular diigo group.
  • eyal matsliah
     
    re: http://www.diigo.com/help/stickynote/2

    it's a good idea to limit the display of IN-SITU sticky-notes.
    however:
    1. a PUBLIC sticky note should still be viewable on my diigo page, next to my highlights
    2. as of now, it still not possible to add friends (I know you're working on it, and am waiting patiently... )

    keep on the good work !

Five Ways to Mark Up the Web - 2 views

  • Jim Stroud April 10th, 2007 at 10:34 pm I use Diigo religiously! In my professional life, I train recruiters on how to use the internet to find hidden talent as well as conduct extensive online research on behalf of my employer. I tell EVERYONE that Diigo is THE product to use (bar none) and encourage any and all to try it for themselves. I diigo! Do you diigo?
  • Phil97 April 10th, 2007 at 11:16 pm I’ve spent a lot of time using Diigo. I’ve looked over the other services you mention, just in case there was something better out there. Day in and day out, I can work more quickly and easily. It’s so powerful I still haven’t scratched the surface. They seem to be making it better all the time, and they listen to their users. Diigo rocks the Web!
  • lela April 11th, 2007 at 6:57 am Diigo! I am a diigo user.and through my using,i find diigo is very easy.This litter tool has made my study very conveniently . I have introduced this tool to my classmates .Because this ,i want to be a diigo spreader.
  • ...13 more annotations...
  • The fundamental problems of annotation, regarding construction and usability - remain, even though the web infrastructure has opened up.
  • The memex concept of “trails” doesn’t seem to be captured by many of the current systems (except perhaps TrailFire and ShiftSpace? ) I think the wiki article on memex covers the differences: http://en.wikip....org/wiki/Memex
  • We could be wrong about that, perhaps Diigo or some evolved form of Google Notebook will be the One True Meta-web the market selects. But we should at least stop to consider what it means to have our online culture be privately controlled (or pseudo-publicly controlled; ICANN, etc.).
  • Search has led us astray. A better solution may well come from the way we filter information in real life (where we can’t search cause its not free, there’s no google for the real world). We start locally with things we trust and bring in sources local to those. I trust the NYT and my friends, and find new things to trust from there. When I want to find out something, THAT’s the set I want to search.
  • Stickis.com brings to YOU information from YOUR socially proximate and trusted sources. Wherever you browse the web, it tells you what your personally selected Crowd of friends, bloggers etc have said.
  • Blogrovr.com does this for blogs. Tell Rovr what blogs you like and wherever you browse on the web, rovr tells you what they’ve said about the page you’re on.
  • Wade Ren April 11th, 2007 at 6:04 pm Re: Meer on Diigo - “90% of those features (except annotation) are rarely used by a regular web surfer. Indeed, web annotation itself is not for 90% of the users, and is likely to be adopted only by the minority of the web users who consume information diligently. After all, everyone knows that having a pen and a highlighter while you read is really helpful for digesting and retaining information — but how many actually do it? For the minority of the users that do make use of web annotation, our user feedback tells us Diigo’s other features are quite appreciated. In addition, the Diigo plug-in is completely customizable, allowing users to only keep the features they want
  • For this reason, we are positioning JumpKnowledge as more of a personal annotation tool and not a social annotation tool. This allows us to focus JKN and make it easy as possible to use for non-technical creators and readers.
  • This has enabled search engines to index their pages and generate a fair amount of organic traffic.
  • Wade Ren April 11th, 2007 at 11:54 am Nick, Thanks for covering the web annotation area and mentioning Diigo here. Since the Techcrunch review last August, we have been developing lots of new features and we hope we can give you a demo soon. As a sort of quick showcase of Diigo, click this link to see some annotations on this post http://srl.diigo.com/11xq — no plug-in is needed and you can be using any of the major browsers (firefox, ie, opera, safari) .

  • We’re looking forward to achieve a point where we not necessarily compete but can share resources and standards and work together to finally make this great potential for a metaweb to come true.

Diigo: bookmarking evolved | Webware : Cool Web apps for everyone - 1 views

  • Hands-on Diigo: bookmarking evolved By Rafe Needleman – August 1, 2006,
  • It took me a while to grok Diigo, though. There's a lot going on here, and like a Swiss Army Knife, there are blades that new users will find confusing. What's a customizable search bar doing here? And why does Diigo act so much like a social bookmarking tool--do we really need another one of these?
  • but we've evolved since then--what people used to call "graffiti" we now call "interactivity" and "community."
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • It's a handy and universal "send this article" function, and the highlighting tool makes it much easier to add context.
  • There's yet another new bookmarking utility live now: Diigo. This one is different. In addition to letting you bookmark pages and share those bookmarks with others, it also lets you highlight parts of pages (text or images), and store those highlights not only in your Diigo account, but also on the Web pages themselves
  • Diigo has very useful annotation and organizational features, though, and if you want a good way to mark up the Web for personal use or a fast way to send clips to people you know, it's worth checking out.
  • The annotation capability sets Diigo apart from Del.icio.us and makes it a more granular data-gathering tool, like ClipMarks

Diigo.com - Social Annotation - KillerStartups.com - 0 views

  • “Diigo (dee'go) is about "Social Annotation". By combining social bookmarking, clippings, in situ annotation, tagging, full-text search, easy sharing and interactions, Diigo offers a powerful personal tool and a rich social platform for knowledge users, and in the process, turns the entire web into a writable, participatory and interactive media.
  • Why it might be a killer: It combines features from a bunch of different sites into one thing, and all of these features work really well together. The ease with which you can add your content to blogs is really useful, and if students get word of this, it will make their lives writing papers and studying for their different subjects so much easier. When Diigo is criticized on blogs, there is a dedicated base of users that attack the bad review with proof of the site’s worth, which makes it hard to argue with.

Diigo Review: Robust Social Bookmarking - Recommended Web Tools - 0 views

  • A commenter on the Yahoo page wisely noted: Diigo really needs a function to thumb up/thumb down the comments for pages. This will get spammy, really, really quick. This is true and needs to be addressed by Diigo.
  • When I go to bookmark a page, I can also highlight text and Diigo will save it. So in the process of research, if there is a key paragraph about the topic I am researching, I can highlight the paragraph and then bookmark the page. As long as I am logged in to Diigo, every time I visit that page, that paragraph will be highlighted.
  • The really cool thing about tags in Diigo is the ability to easily edit them. I can easily choose a tag and rename or even delete it. This task is made too difficult by other services.
  • ...6 more annotations...
  • The power of Diigo comes in with its annotations features. I already mentioned highlighting above. Diigo lets users aggregate those highlights. For example, you’ve spent hours researching a topic and tagged each site with a particular tag. On the Diigo site, you can pull up all those tags and display ALL your highlighted text. This provides you an easy way to view your information. This is a great tool for writers. Saves times from cutting and pasting quotes or flipping back and forth between all the bookmarked pages to remember what was pertinent to you.
  • Another great thing about Diigo is a very user friendly help section. I printed the whole thing out. After the 30 mins or so it took me to read through the material I had a pretty good understanding of Diigo’s capabilities.
  • The hardwork put into Diigo is evident. It has become my bookmarking tool of choice.
  • Diigo Review: Robust Social Bookmarking by Paul Flyer
  • Every now and then I get to write about something that takes a good idea and makes it better. When I first read TechCrunch’s review of Diigo back in March of 2006, I yawned, despite the reviewers enthusiasm. I had looked at many of the social bookmarking sites and saw nothing innovative. My own lack of enthusiasm for social bookmarking sites clouded my judgement when I read that review. > Today, I am a big fan of Diigo. If del.icio.us is the most popular social bookmarking site and Digg is the most popular social news site, then Diigo should become the internet researchers tool of choice. Beyond basic bookmarking, tagging and sharing, Diigo offers a suite of tools that turn it into a robust research, annotation and note taking tool.
  • eyalnow comments: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Hi Paul, great post ! for me, diigo is mainly about information management and then about sharing. I agree with the thumbs up/down suggestion. it’s already possible to filter annotations by groups, which were introduced after you wrote your review what’s your diigo page ? mine is http://www.diigo.com/user/eyalnow March 27th, 2007 at 4:00 am
