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.

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
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 Elkins commented
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
peter brady commented
Tags have their limitations on their own.
Tag bundles are needed ASAP please.
Can't believe this has over 200 votes!
I'm with the dissenters! Tags work much better for me than folders. Folders are far to limiting. If folders are implemented please keep tags working the way they currently do as well.

Frankly, I would be thrilled if you made it work just like Delicious. This really the only area that Diigo is inferior to Delicious, and making this change would seal the deal!
jenna marianne commented
If you plan to implement this like delicious' tag bundles, I'm all for it. It's great to group tags into bundles, and to put individual tags in multiple bundles.
If it will be more hierarchical & constrictive, that's why I stopped using my browser for bookmarking.
Personally I find tags to be more intuitive than folders and I'm fine not changing this...
William Reveal commented
The problem with tags is that once you have hundreds, it is hard to work through the list. I was being driven crazy with the Delicious extensions which make a single menu of all my tags which go completely off the page.
Providing a way to group tags together, al la, delicious bundles is nice. Strict folder hierarchies can be too constraining whereas the ability to put a particular tag into multiple groups works well.
I just prefer to have a way to shorten the lists or at least group things.
Guy Fawkes commented
Tagging is the reason why I started using del.icio.us since it's much more powerful than folders. However, from a mathematical viewpoint, tags represent a graph whereas folders represent a tree, and trees are a subset of graphs. This means it's possible to use tags to create a hierarchy that simulates folders (this is exactly what the del.icio.us to browser bookmark syncers do). All that is needed is a way to represent the relationships between the tags.

Hi! My husband and I are going to Palawan in October 2010.
We want to stay Coco-loco Island Resort for 2 nights (from 21.10.10 to 23.10.10).
I would really appreciate it if you could give us any advice (as we have never been to Palawan):
1.How better to get from Puerto Princesa to Roxas and roughly how much money it cost;
2. Rates of accommodations for 2 nights;
3. What kind activities do you offer.
Your early reply will be very much appreciated.

I really like the 'lists' capability in Diigo and agree that folders are evil. However, if there was a way to "link" our 'lists' into an "all encompassing" list it would make a huge difference. I personally make 'lists' of the separate segments of what I'm working on, but they often get intermingled with my other lists. A solution for this would be wicked.

I fully agree with soulgrind r and Sean Brady. The whole reason I switched to Diigo from using Chrome's internal bookmarks function is that I wanted to get away from folder hierarchies. They are a thing of the past, and it would be far more worth the Diigo programmers' time to work on other functions.
Sean Brady commented
My only comment on this suggestion is please do not break tagging as it exists today on Diigo to implement this feature.If I wanted to use folders I would just store all of my bookmarks in Google Chrome. I agree with what others have said, it seems to be that there are more pressing issues that could/should be addressed first.

why not give the user the option of using either tags or folders, and everyone will be happy, I hate folders, I am not looking to mimick my operating system, tagging is the best!!!
Angel Torres commented
tagging is the best!!! If folders get implemented, I will close my account. It is tagging one of the features I like about this program
L. Shaw Mitchell commented
Folders and tags are the way to go. Think full service, fully flexible, fully customizable.
Billy Chan commented
Great to know it's planned!
