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.

    If diigo bookmarks with folders becomes a reality diigo will probably make all of the bookmark services I use superfluous and unnecessary. Diigo will do everything I need it to do. When diigo allows me to organize my bookmarks by folder it will indeed by day to celebrate.

    Thinking of it like flexible tags would be good because then you could place a bookmark in several categories. This could be combined with some kind of filter in order to generate lists that have certain properties.

    I absolutely agree - I am getting very frustrated with having to tag things, and then move them into a list - now I have a million lists that I have to scroll through. What I would find most useful is a way to have sub-lists (like sub folders) or something that would serve a similar purpose.

    Yes! This is a must have! I am a Premium user and this is very important to me.

    Also would like to see the Bookmarks appear in the toolbar where the Chrome Stock bookmarks appear.

    Code this please!

    Hierarchical tags are a necessity. Any list of things over 20 items or so absolutely needs folders, to make searching and browsing it easier, and to just keep my brain clean.

    My suggestion for how to do it is: drag any tag onto another one, to make it the child of the second tag. Parent tags function like regular text tags, *and* they're folders containing other tags.

    A key function of this feature is that when assigning child tags, all parent tags are also automatically assigned. So if I have a parent tag "science", containing children "astronomy", "biology", etc, and I type "astronomy" to tag an item, that item will be findable by searching either "astronomy" or "science". And if I click on the "science" parent tag in my tag tree, I will see all items that have either the "science" tag directly assigned, or *any* of its child tags.

    I don't think folders, but definitely tags and stored within the lists which will be the equivalent of "folders". Jut making it sync to the browser would be of the chain!

    If you think about it, tags are like flexible folders
    Check out the folders at Google docs - apart from the folder icon, they are in fact tags.
    One could make special 'folder tags' that show at the top of the tags list and imagine folder icons besides...

    the key to this idea is to do what Delicious does (er... DID). Use the current tag system as a starting point and get it easily accessible into PULL DOWN MENUS (rather than making people waste a lot of extra time refreshing their whole screen to see a "flat" list. Like Delicious, allow favorite tags to be highlighted in those pulldowns, as well as most used links, and then ALSO on top of that do what Delicious never did... add in a nesting capability with folders. Pulldowns are a natural for this and about 100% faster than the way Diigo does it now.

    As an educator with over 4,200 bookmarks, 450 tags and 41 lists, I can say that folders are an absolute necessity. I started bookmarking with Spurl in 2003 and the folder hierarchy without the tags worked quote well. If the Diigo masters needed a buzzphrase for inspiration to introduce folders, how about "blended taxonomy"? I'll let them decide whether we put the bookmarks or the tags into the folders, but the linear structure will help us manage our libraries like nothing else can. C'mon folks, we're cheering you one. You've already made digital libraries possible - this would be an exponential advance is usability!

    (sighs) you mean i need to rename my tags primary.secondary.tertiary to primary > secondary > tertiary .... nooooooooooo... (actually, secretly, i think this rocks)

    great idea, but what about a proper tool / sidebar for chrome? I don´t realy get why that´s not working yet?! I want my sidebar back !!! the extension sucks!

  • meistr perchennogmeistr perchennog commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It's not what i want it's what i need. Hierarchical folders, first and foremost. Then tags if i wish to have alternative search bundle options.

  • Vincent MimirVincent Mimir commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Hierarchy tags or folder tags should replace the list feature (else we'll have redondant information), then only group will remain to share infos between many users

  • L NinowL Ninow commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    at first I thought this was a ridiculous idea, but now that I have 347 tags, I understand the value of grouping the tags in folders. I thought that was what lists were, but you can't search for specific tags in lists. Maybe that can be an alternative implementation that may help? add tags to lists.

    When I think of the ways Diigo could implement this, Hootsuite and Tweetdeck come to mind. It would be great if Diigo could work something out with the Diigo Chrome Web App.
