Bookmarklet to replicate "read later" functionality (bookmark as private & unread) - 50 views

unread bookmarklet suggestion help

    Is there a bookmarklet out there that replicates the "read later" functionality from the Firefox toolbar? I just want to click one thing and have it mark as a private, unread bookmark in that one click.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure if you guys use these suggestion threads as a "voting mechanism", but I agree with this suggestion.

Tags not "sticking" - 89 views

    I've got some tags that aren't transferring from my bookmark to my group. It has happened in a couple cases. I realized it last night when I filtered my bookmarks by a tag and only got a couple links back when I knew I had many things tagged with a certain tag.

    I was running through a group this morning and found that my tags weren't transferring to the group again. I took two screenshoits. The first is a screenshot of the "bookmark" dialog where the tags had already been entered (and seemingly saved).

    This second screenshot is from the group page showing that those tags didn't make it into the saved bookmark:

    Interesting. What is your opinion of this behavior, if I may ask, Graham? I think it would work more clearly if, when I chose to share it to a group, a new box for entering tags popped up. I have tried to illustrate this idea in a screenshot:
    http://img.skitch.com/20090701-jqrf1cctaq3kp3jr3nq2p91a47.jpg

    There would also, then, be a "duplicate tags" button, that way if I wanted the same tags on each copy, I could just click that button.

    As it is -- unless I'm mistaken -- it seems a) unintuitive that I would have to manually change the tags for each copy of the bookmark and b) tedious to have to do so outside the "Add a Bookmark to Diigo" dialog.

    Is that something I do on my end?

    Also, this may not be the right place to ask, but are there any plans to to implement the full Diigo toolbar in Safari? Is that possible?

    Thanks,

Help with unusable sticky notes, please! - 79 views

sticky notes sticky Firefox extension Evernote conflict bug
  • Russ Goerend
     
    I must be doing something wrong. My stickies *rarely* work. Maybe 1 out of 20 times I try to use one is it actually functional. The other times a sticky pops up but has no box to type in or anything else, and what's worse is that it won't close. I'll close the tab within which I created the sticky, but the sticky just stays there on top of all my other tabs. Here is a screenshot of the problem. http://skitch.com/mrgoerend/bxitb/learning-to-navigate-the-web-the-thinking-stick

    Please help me solve this so I can get some use out of Diigo. Thanks.

    Mac OS 10.5.7
    Firefox 3.0.10
    Diigo Toolbar 3.1.6.13

    edit: Quitting Firefox and trying again worked. If the problem hadn't happened so many times, I'd probably just live with it. I'll try to isolate the problem and see if there are sites I'm loading that are interfering.

    I think I used the wrong terminology. I apologize for the confusion.

    What I was calling a "sticky note" I should have called something different, though I'm not sure what. I select text, then go to "highlight and comment." A "sticky note" pops up and most times (again when I tried right after you replied) it is unusable. There are three icons on the sticky note: an "X", a trash can, and a speech bubble. Clicking on these icons does nothing. There is no box to type in (just like in my screenshot) and it won't close.

    As I said in my edit, sometimes it works. After quitting Firefox and trying again, it worked. But then I loaded the next page I wanted to annotate, it did the same thing as before where I can't do anything with the sticky note and the note won't go away.

    I tried following step-by-step the directions you linked to me. When I hover (not right-click) over a highlighted section, my choices are different from those in the how-to: http://img.skitch.com/20090517-fqa2g5n87r66yw8tay2fq6rwui.jpg I assume these differences are just from different versions of the toolbar. When I click "add sticky note" the majority of the time, I get the unusable sticky note: http://img.skitch.com/20090517-taut2yd8f3hrr9ryeadbp3qitk.jpg Of course, when I tried it on the how-to page, it worked: http://img.skitch.com/20090517-g6fqdkam4hadgmig9m226712n4.jpg Going back to the page I wanted to highlight and following the same steps gave me the same unusable sticky note.

    Is there anything I can do (such as a log file or something) to give you more information? I'm sorry that you can't reproduce it, but it happens to me much more often than not.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Hi Graham,
    Thank you for your continued help with my problem.

    Here is a screenshot of my add-ons.



    Looks like the only ones we differ on (on my end) are Gresemonkey, Greasefire, Evernote, Drag and Drop.io, and is.gd creator. I will try disabling those and re-enabling one at a time. I'll report back anything I figure out.

    Here's my about:config http://pastebin.ca/1426658

    Thanks,
    Russ

    Graham,
    i think it's the Evernote plugin. I had a feeling it was, so I disabled only that plugin and so far so good.

    I can live without that plugin as it has a bookmarklet with the exact same functionality. I'll let you know if I get any more "unusable" stickies in the future.

    Thanks for all your help and patience.
    Russ
