    I am loving this and the potential is huge. I have noticed that I would like a specific order for the bookmarks for my students (and of course I did not preserve them in that order.) Does anyone know a way to sort or re-order bookmarks?

    Are you referring to sorting within a group? Currently with group bookmarks, the order can be displayed via "Time created", "New comments" "Thumb ups - group popular vote' We're evaluating more ways to sort such as alphabetical. Any input here?

    FYI: if you use a Diigo List, you can have full control of the order http://help.diigo.com/How-To_Guide/Lists

    I like the way I can reorder bookmarks within a list by moving them up or down and to the top or bottom. I found I do not create things in the order I want students to find them, but I would like them to go throup my bookmarks in a group in a specific order.

    Along these sames lines, I have now found out as I experiment with this more, that while I can move around bookmarks within a List, I cannot reorder my Lists. Any possibility that that functionality can be added?

    Thanks for everything. We are working on an IT issue with the toolbar and hope to be fully underway soon after the Thanksgiving break.

    I would also like to second this - from using diigo in lessons as a starting point, it'd be really handy to move my bookmarks around so I know that when students load up the main webpage, they can see the link I want them to use straight away.

    There's also the issue that after a while, the volume of them will make them less acessible. I like the idea of moving links up and down.

    Hi Maggie,

    I would love to see both a user's personal rating system combined with a reader's rating system - kinda like editor's comments & reader's comments on Amazon.

    Creating lists could also be made easier with tagsonomy related sorting tools. After a while, I see that my tag list becomes unwieldy, repetitive, redundant and poorly organized. It would be cool to have the ability to resort, organize and create hierarchical tags.

    Once I organized my tags (future project!) I would love to have a feature that would help me prevent tagsonomy bloat. Imagine three drop down menus for tags in the "Add a bookmark to Diigo" box. The first menu would be restricted to 10 major tag categories and a "create new category" link. Once selected, the second drop down menu would display subtags within that category also with a "create new subtag" link. Such a feature would nip tag bloat in the bud.

    Together with automatically generated top ten lists based on editor's or reader's comments, these features would address Andy Whiteway's comment:

    "There's also the issue that after a while, the volume of them will make them less acessible. I like the idea of moving links up and down."

    All the best on Diigo ver. 4.0
