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.

    Folders have the advantage over tags and search that they are graphically intuitive. When those who say that outlining is "outdated" come up with an alternative structural paradigm, I'll take them more seriously. In spite of Google, search is *not* the answer to all organizational questions. Even in Gmail, they have folders - in the form of labels.

    Hierarchical tags are a variation on the theme of folders - I wouldn't get too hung up on the details if it's easier to program it one way or the other.

    My concern remains: if you have only a flat organization, which is what tags amount to, you've lost the conceptual tool that a hierarchical approach gives you.

    Let's move to chipmark.com
    It's bad idea without SSL encryption.
    if you go to internet cafe everyone easily can look at your bookmark data, etc.

    I would give up folders every day of the week if I had the option to organize & hyperlink my Lists through either tags or the section headers. And by hyperlink, I mean able to navigate the Lists by way of clickable links for the section headers or even by way of tags specific to that List.

    I can't believe so many still request Folders when Tags & Search makes them obsolete!

    FOLDERS PLEEEEASE. I am beginning to get lost in my heaps and heaps of bookmarks.

    Makes me wonder how I survived with Delicious.

    I love the idea of folders, particularly if they could be colour coded (ie. we get to select a colour for each folder or group of folders!!) This would be especially useful for those visual learners amongst us.

    @Nicole Masureik Can you please tell us where did you import
    bookmarks from and which service provides the folder feature?

  • Nicole MasureikNicole Masureik commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Absolutely. I'm really frustrated at just having imported all my bookmarks (which were beautifully organised by folder and sub-folder) only to discover that now I have to manually redo the WHOLE lot (and there are a lot) because Diigo hasn't organised them in the same way, or even used my folder names as proper tags. (The folder names are visible as tags, but when I click on the tag, Diigo tells me that I have nothing under that tag.

    VERY frustrated. Might be simpler to just keep manually updating my various computers.

    This is the only reason I am even considering using webnotes... Diigo is far superior, but I need a better way of organizing my work. Whether it's nested tags, or just standard folders and sub-folders, this is a glaring omission in Diigo. While you're at it, I really need pdf annotation too... Thanks Santa.

    I agree with the idea of including a option for the use of folders. Not replace tags - it can be faster to just drop into folder & tag later. Would add ability to color code folders if needed. eg. Diigo red = untagged, blue = project info etc. SO YES to folders +1

    better even: hierachical tags (à la evernote)
    * like folders, they can be nested
    * like tags: one entry can have multiple tags (= ~ be in several folders at the same time).

    => example: a newspaper article on "blackberry playbook review" can be sorted in

    NO!!! The tagging system works better than the folder one.
    If applied, please make softlink available - which is indeed, the tagging system but in hierarchy view

  • SK ElkinsSK Elkins commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Folders and tags are not mutually exclusive, people!

    I'm rather amazed at the number of people who are speaking out against this idea because they prefer tags to folders. I'm fairly certain that the idea here is to be able to have *both,* not to do away with tagging. Personally, I think a system that allows for both hierarchical (folders) and non-hierarchical (tags) ontologies is obviously superior to any system which only offers one and not the other.

    I want to vote agains this. It seems that lists do what they want. I moved to diigo because folders were too limiting
