I suggest you ...

Organise your bookmark list like yours os, in differents folders

The idea is that you could organise your selection of bookmarks, like you can in a selected folder and sub-folder of your operating system. EX List (music) in différents folders (classic, rock, ...)

Thanks for all inputs.We are spearing no efforts to make Diigo 6.0 available soon. We are working on a brand-new way to organize items. You can use hierarchy system in a new way. it is also super easy to re-order items’ structure. Please stay tuned.

    This should be an added function, is your concerned about tagging make it a requirement of it. I work on several research projects at once and use folders to organize those lists. I wanted to use an online bookmarker so I could access from anywhere.

    Hierarchical lists makes sense. Tagging is fine but that tends to lead to clutter. The tags work best for searching and setting up cross references that span multiple categories. We need a way to organize lists and create taxonomies.

    Folders are so 1.0..... I don't think this is a good idea. Be more creative.

  • Evan HarmonEvan Harmon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I think the best way to do this would be to implement tag bundles and then allow people to present them as virtual folders where you could make them have manual and/or smart properties (assign the folders to be populated automatically via the assignment of tags or manually via specific bookmarks). You should also be able to assign the folders/tag bundles a description so you can keep track of how you've setup each folder. And the folder/tag bundles should be able to be nested and include lists as well.

    There are other threads with the same purpose:
    To have a tag bundle option
    hierarchy tags
    You can vote on "To have a tag bundle option" too, since it is under review.
    Having tags as virtual folders is nice, too. It is just that if I tag-bundle something as 'school', it probably has nothing to do with the subject of school, I'm probably just relating it to my-school.

    Considering how important this feature seems to be, I would have thought it would be implemented by now. I have installed diigo toolbar, but I am not adding much to my library because I know I have to change all of them again soon.
    Well, I think maybe the structure of how the files are stored in diigo does not let them implement this easily. As for me though, I would equally happy with a solution like this:
    Get rid of Lists, replace it with a tree [all bookmarks from old Lists imported level1 of new tree]. Diigo can keep the same structure as before. Just make sure backup and export/import support the new tree. Then maybe also provide a version of export to include the folders.
    I mean you don't even have to change any existing structure or code from the start. I didn't think it would take this long.

    Please delete my account; Diigo is not what I have in mind. I will try something else instead. Thank you

    i have to weigh in again. please make sure you take into consideration users who just never sign up for diigo due to the lack of bookmarks. most of them would never even see this forum let alone register and then post as i have. i desperately need this tool but just cannot use it efficiently without bookmarks.

  • jsp48080jsp48080 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Diigo looks like its got a lot of cool features, but I came here looking for bookmarking and this is too foreign to me without folders so I likely won't even try the other features. Please make this an option Diigo.

  • h mh m commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Also going to have to ditch diigo due to now being able to have folders. Lists are good too, but im too used to having folders, and folders within folders that i can name as i choose. Do not like the default naming of groups here on diigo

  • Eric KrompsEric Kromps commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I am a new user of Diigo and am amazed that there is no method for hierarchical folders for organizing bookmarks. I've read many posts back to the beginning of this forum thread and understand the argument. I hope the developers realize in the "voting" for this feature that there are many users not voting because, like me, they see no folders and simply stop using Diigo. So rather than signing up myself and others within my company, i am going to continuing searching for a similar tool that supports folders.

  • Xiaoyu TangXiaoyu Tang commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Oh I found the first post was about 1 year ago! I guess the reason why Diigo doesnot do this is, it 'll decrease our motivation for tagging links. And Diigo wants us to find links by filtering them by tags. Am I right?

  • Xiaoyu TangXiaoyu Tang commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes! Just now I was about to say this!
    I used to utilized the "favorites" or "bookmarks" features of some browsers which have online or offline storage services. They have a basic sub-folder-like function which make it easier to organize. I think they have similar structures in Ontology in CS. Delicious's organising method in their browser plugins is a tag-based one, the problem of them is there're duplicates in different subfolders. Personally I think it's not easy to organize. I think in Diigo you have a section feature which is a good start. But it seems there's no such feature in browser sidebars!

    Diigo, like most, is based on tag searching. I agree that folder searching and organising would be useful. Yahoo bookmarks used to be great for this. You could switch back and forward between tag views and folder views. Yahoo was the best for years but now they've ruined it and made it useless. Diigo should take advantage here.

  • riccardorbriccardorb commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This should not be a suggestion, this should have been the fundamental reason to even set up any online bookmarking service. What other priority than being able to (subcategorize your bookmarks?
    I wonder why apparently ALL seem to refuse to do it.

    This would be very nice. Also under the Read Later list as well. Ie, different subjects to read, depending on what mood you are in, etc...
