Two way (bidirectional) sync or offline editing - 249 views

bookmarks diigo sync bidirectional two way offline edit organize manage library API suggestion question
  • Yoni Blumberg
    I'm not sure if this should be one topic or two, but I'm wondering if 1) there is any service with which Diigo is able to perform a bidirectional sync, and 2) if there is any software that can keep a local copy of your bookmarks and sync with Diigo.

    1) I realize Diigo can add your new bookmarks to delicious, as far as I know, delicious can't sync back to google so when if I make changes there they aren't reflected in my Diigo library. I also realize when I bookmark things with the firefox toolbar I can set it up to save a copy in the browser but that two is one-way and future changes are not synced. I am hoping there is a way I can edit my Diigo bookmarks somewhere else and have the changes reflected here. Is that possible and if not how likely is it to be made possible in the future? What would such a feature entail in terms of development?

    2) Following along the same lines as the previous points, is there any way to edit my Diigo library offline and then upload the changes to diigo? Again, I realize that this would be technically possible to do by downloading my Diigo library, editing it in firefox or something, and then re-uploading it but this is really not at all what I am looking for. If there is a way to edit offline bookmarks and have those changes uploaded (short of importing a whole new batch of bookmarks, e.g. through an interface, not through manual uploading of a bookmark index)?

    You definitely aren't but you people probably don't find it annoying enough to come post about it very often. I am here for other reasons and noticed your post by chance. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. I can provide more details if necessary.

bookmarks toolbar question

  • Yoni Blumberg
    I'm surprised no one replied to this sooner. I don't know what browser you are using but the Firefox toolbar has a sidebar option that let's your browse your bookmarks. Also there is a search button that you can use on the toolbar if you customize it (I think). Hopefully someone else will get back to you with more information

Firefox 4 Toolbar - 107 views

diigo Toolbar firefox FF firefox4
  • Yoni Blumberg
    Does anyone know the progress of the development of a Diigo Toolbar for Firefox 4. I know it doesn't work with either Firefox 4 beta 6 or 7 (7 is the newest one). Beta 7 marks the feature freeze for Firefox 4 so it has reached a point in development where Diigo should be able to get the toolbar up and running. Also, I don't know what FF changed so that the old one doesn't still work.

    Anyway, if anyone knows what the progress is or if anyone/who is working on this, please let me know.

    If Firefox 4 is getting released as final soon and the newest version of the Diigo toolbar isn't working on it, even with compatibility check disabled, I imagine it should be a priority. Do we know if anyone is working on it?

Filtering Options Removed in v5 (filter both private and unread at once) - 10 views

Diigo filter search help
started by Yoni Blumberg on 19 Aug 10 no follow-up yet
  • Yoni Blumberg
    In v4 and prior I was able to filter my bookmarks by private and then only view unread ones... I am now able to view either private bookmarks or unread bookmarks, but not filter by both. In other words, I would like to find bookmarks that are "private" and "Read Later" but it seems I can only view bookmarks in either of these categories independently.

Diigo Slow to Update and Inconsistently Displaying as Private - 132 views

diigo bug priority bookmarking firefox toolbar private public website display help
  • Yoni Blumberg
    Diigo seems to be stuck on displaying bookmarks however they were initially marked. This manifests itself both using the FF add-on and using the website itself.

    When I add a bookmark using the Firefox add-on, the results are inconsistent leading to unusual and confusing results such as the one shown here:

    If I click the "one-click" bookmarking button (bottom three) and then click again to open the bookmarking window and uncheck "private" and "unread" and add tags. This results in the tags not showing up on Diigo and the bookmarks showing as unread (incorrectly) having a private icon next to them (incorrectly) but showing up in the public listing not the private one (as they should).

    If I click "bookmark" and then uncheck private and add tags, it works as it should. (see eduStyle entry)

    Finally, if I click bookmark, forget to uncheck the default private setting, and then add tags, the tags show up like they should. However, even after I hit "bookmark" again and uncheck private, Diigo incorrectly keeps the padlock icon next to the bookmark as it does for the bottom three. (see top entry)

    Has anyone encountered this situation with the Firefox add-on? It might be that Diigo is just slow to realize the changes, but I want to know where the tags I entered for those bottom three bookmarks are, if they will show up later, and why the different results for the different methods.

    Also, Diigo also seems slow to update through the website too. When I change a bookmark through the Diigo website from private to public, it stops showing in the private section of my bookmarks (as it should) but the count for bookmarks marked as private remains what it was before I changed the bookmark to public (this is incorrect as the count should be one lower). Additionally, these tags exist somewhere; for example, I tagged a site from the ASPA (American Political Science Association) "political science"... in my list of tags, "political science shows 1 entry. However, when I click "political science," no results are found...
    This mystery of the disappearing tags is bothering me...

    P.S. This is a separate topic, but why is the Firefox add-on more feature-full than the actual Diigo website. For example, why doesn't the website include features such as "used last time" or "commonly used" tags?

    stranded_storm (I read your post on the main page, I'm not sure why it requires approval),

    Are you using Firefox or another browser?
  • Yoni Blumberg

    Re your first response: Thank you, but I should have clarified that I meant within the bookmarking part of the site (e.g. when I click "edit" a bookmark and go to add tags, in the toolbar I have the ones I used last time, but the website doesn't do this... I assume the toolbar uses cookies but I don't know why the website couldn't keep it as a temporary part of my account that changes)

    Re your second response: Thanks; the problem is still happening and the tags never showed up... I guess I'll readd them myself? Edit: The problem seems to have corrected itself, insofar as the bookmarks referenced above now all show as unread and have their corresponding tags. The lesson however seems to be that using the one-click bookmark button or any toolbar method other than directly hitting bookmark and doing it all correctly the first time results in slower updates... Either way, glad to have those tags back and have it work itself out eventually

Seeing what lists bookmarks are in... (still waiting) - 41 views

diigo organization tags lists list viewing view tag bookmarks search add delete suggestion
started by Yoni Blumberg on 23 Mar 10 no follow-up yet
  • Yoni Blumberg
    As a former Furl user, I am still waiting for a feature very important to usability: the ability to see what lists a bookmark is in no matter where I am viewing it.

    As of now, I can only see what lists a bookmark is in if I look in the general panel from "All Bookmarks" or unread or private or public or whatever...
    If I look from a list, I can't see what other lists the bookmark might be in. I realize Diigo does not like lists and does not do much to support them (and certainly has not seemed to have any intention of implementing sublists or anything more hierarchical, despite some noted community interest), but the ability to see what lists a bookmark is in should be a very basic feature...

    I don't know anything about the backend of lists or their structure, but this could be done with another attribute or invisible tags that say "Lists: _______" and show up wherever you are looking at a bookmark. If I'm not being given a better feature to remove and add to multiple lists at once (*which is what I would like in the edit pane*) then at least the ability to see where a bookmark is added would help me organize better...

    And before someone suggests it, I don't want to have to use lists only through personally adding tags that say "List: Design" and "List: Policy" etc etc.... I, as other, believe that the ideal organizational system is not solely hierarchical or solely tag-based, but rather a hybrid system allowing access to information through multiple points of access.

    Thank you,
    Yoni Blumberg

See what lists bookmarks are in, while looking at a list - 79 views

diigo bookmarks sort lists tags organize help list priority view suggestion
  • Yoni Blumberg
    When I am inside a list on Diigo, I'd like to know what other list(s) the bookmarks I'm looking at are already in. This is absolutely essential for me to organize a great number of bookmarks with any semblance of efficiency.

    For example, I am trying to organize 800+ bookmarks I have accumulated in a browser and now imported to diigo. I am trying to tag these and sort them into many lists. Since I cannot edit them all very efficiently and do not know what lists I may ultimately want, I was going to put them into a "To sort" list first, and then go through, tag them, and then file them into lists. Then I would delete them from the "to-sort" list, but I would like to wait until I have organized them already. I can't do this very well if I can't see what lists I have already put them in...

    If anyone can either make it possible for me to see this information, or give me advice on a process/algorithm to tag and sort my 800+ bookmarks.

  • Yoni Blumberg
    I think I figured it out. I am going to tag all the new imported ones with a temporary tag (e.g. to-sort), then use the main library page and view everything that is either private or unread (probably unread since that's easiest and I know how--which is easy because I imported everything from my browser as private and unread to make it stick out). Then I will tag all the things that are in a certain category and then add to a list or multiple lists. Actually, I started writing this and never posted it. Now, after trying a few bookmarks and a few as a bulk group, I like the system. I still strongly believe that it is necessary for the lists to show what other lists the bookmarks are in, but the current system accomplishes the task.

One-Click Icon isn't red - 29 views

bug Firefox resolved duplicate
  • Yoni Blumberg
    I believe when I ran into this problem it was because those bookmarks were private but now even if they are it works for me on my mac in FF so I'm not sure what to tell you...
  • Yoni Blumberg
    No I don't know off the top of my head. I did have this problem but I'm not sure what I did to make it go away... I think before it was just not showing when they were private but now it does... so I don't know what is different for you. I also know that now when I bookmark something a second time, I THINK it overwrites the old bookmark and just moves it to the top of my library (chronologically)

    Sorry not to be more help. Perhaps the activity on this post will draw more attention from a more knowledgeable user who can be of more assistance. Good luck!

    Uploading or at least linking to files would be very helpful, though I imagine much, much more space hungry and demanding.

    For something like that, Evernote Pro sounds much more feasible.

Color of toolbar bookmark icon not changing - 10 views

bug resolved worksforme diigo toolbar icon red pink color change button public private Mozilla Firefox
  • Yoni Blumberg
    When I am on pages I have bookmarked, the icon color of the bookmarking icon used to change from white to red or pink. It no longer does. I use both Firefox 3.5.4 and Firefox Minefield 3.7a1pre. It doesn't change in either browser. I also have a StumbleUpon toolbar in the same row as the Diigo toolbar. Somewhere I read something about an "all in one toolbar" conflicting with Diigo and the buttons needing to be somewhere special. I took some away for aesthetic reasons and can screenshot it if that would help.

  • Yoni Blumberg
    Nevermind. I have realized that if a bookmark is marked private, it does not show as already bookmarked or turn red when I view it. The public ones work.

Customize bookmarking window? - 24 views

  • Yoni Blumberg
    Is it possible that we could customize what options show in the toolbar bookmarking window? While I understand the importance of the legibility and utility concerns, I almost never share to a group yet often would like to add to multiple lists directly from the bookmarking window. If users could choose to get rid of some saving options and have others present it would be a more personalized and useful tool.

    However, I recognize I am coming at this from a designers perspective without the prerequisite coding knowledge to know if this is "pie-in-sky" or practical...
  • Yoni Blumberg
    I do not know what Diigo Meta is...

    I replied at

    Also, if I am understanding you correctly, you are suggesting a window where I can bookmark a page as I do now, that, when save is clicked, redirects me to an entirely new webpage (instead of leaving me on the page I just bookmarked), that is more like the "about" page Furl had where I could *then* add a bookmark to multiple lists? If so, I think this should be a new button in addition to the Save button--e.g. Save & Customize. Also, I am still wondering if it is possible to allow users to customize what options show up by default in their bookmarking window that is launched from the toolbar. If anyone can respond to that directly, I would love to hear what you have to say.

suggestion list lists view bookmark
started by Yoni Blumberg on 07 Apr 09 no follow-up yet
  • Yoni Blumberg
    As a Furl-user who has been imported over into Diigo, I miss one particular feature (or, one that I have not yet seen mentioned in this forum... I also miss proper caching, saving jpgs and filetypes, and many other things... most of which are covered here:

    I would like to see Diigo either incorporate a separate page for each bookmark so that when the link is clicked it goes to a profile of the page with all the information about the link AND/OR (and this second part is the more important one) I would like to see what lists I have a bookmark saved in no matter where I am looking at that bookmark.

    Basically, when I look at my bookmarks in a list, I cannot see what other lists I have put the bookmark in. This may not be a problem for many people because they do not have crosslisted bookmarks. However, many of my pages relate to multiple things I plan to use them for and so I have chosen to create multiple lists.

    One feature I do not "miss" (because Furl never had it) but that I would VERY much like to see included, is the ability to use "subfolders." I would love if I were able to have lists within lists. For example, this would allow me to have a folder for Design and then a couple of subfolders for pictures, and articles, and graphic design, etc etc. I could use common tags and browse all things with the same tag, but this is a little more work. Moreover, if that is the suggestion, then I might as well not use lists at all. That's an option, but it makes it harder to organize your bookmarks. I think having the option to organize how you choose is exceptionally important.

    On a final, related note, I would like to be able to add a bookmark to multiple lists when I bookmark it. In Furl, I was able to add to multiple Topics and Tags at once which was essentially the equivalent.

    I hope these suggestions are taken into account and incorporated in the future.
