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.

How do I vote against an idea? I would vote against this one. Tagging is a much more powerful tool. As nice as hierarchies might be, they're restrictive and would waste valuable Diigo developer time. Time which should be spent on fixing other things.

Thank for Tip

This would be a good idea because it would help you organize better.

I found a way to trick Diigo into thinking it has folders. Previously, I was having a problem with Diigo alphabetizing my lists when I want them according to my topic interests - and THEN alphabetized. Check out how I did it: http://bit.ly/diigofolders

@sandy_diigo, I don't think you need to build a big TREE. One tire folder with plain tags inside would be good. That's the similar to evernote with multiple notebooks and then tags. And I think you can implement quicker in this way.
Whatever solution you adopt finally, please do it asap!!! I need this function badly!!!

Not only bookmarks. Also notes and more.

@sandy_diigo: A hierarchical folder system would be fantastic. It might demand more system resources, but the ability to have parent/child topics would be worth it.

Thanks for sharing tips.

@sandy_diigo: Well, it's not something i'd ever use, and seems like overkill to me in terms of complexity. Much rather have tag bundles, decent handling of singular/plural tags, decent browser integration, better UI, library views that are actually different/logical, a decent API, good search engine integration, lists that can be filtered by tag, decent groups/communities, better post to blog functionality (and to ping.fm, stumbleupon, facebook, etc..), the ability to add notes from the toolbar, and several other features. All of those would be much higher priorities for me, and seem to be mostly easier to implement.
Seems to me that if there were better ways to find and access bookmarks then it wouldn't be necessary to spend time organizing everything into overly complex structures.
But i seem to be in the minority based on votes. It's nice that you guys are actually reading these suggestions though... as nothing has been accepted or rejected yet - i was starting to wonder.
Susana M commented
this is to me priority number one. my biggest wish for diigo!
my best suggestion is to approach gmail's strategy of tags hierarchy:
Country / City / Neighbourhood
Country / City / other Neighbourhood
Country / other City /
The evolution of diigo is towards your dream information management
tool. We allocate our resources and roll out features based on
our core idea and priority order of tasks.
Shortly after we take care of top priority urgent tasks,we will start
this project to better achieve hierarchy management.
Every approach has its advantages and disadvantages.
All factors need to be taken into consideration to get the best tradeoff.
Compared with other approach,"sublists" requires most resources to
support .The whole database system also needs to be redesigned to
be compatible with it.
How do you think those approaches mentioned in my first post?
Still,the final decision is not made. Voice from you,all diigo users
do have a tremendous influence on our decision making process.
Since we are and always a team focus on users and do our best
to serve you better and better. The approach getting most votes
will stand out.
Any more ideas/suggestions/approaches? Or even some
pictures to show the ideal mode in your mind.
Please keep all of them coming.
We’d highly appreciate your inputs! .

Is this idea just getting lots of votes because it's the top one?
It's an ok idea, but there seem to be so many other priorities that diigo should be working on first.

"1) a hierarchical system of tags That is to say, a tag have many subtags."
This sounds ideal to me. I had previously recommended a system of lists with folders etc because it is what I am used, but I did not realize it was at all more resource intensive. Also, I have come to appreciate the flexibility of tagging, especially if one learns to use a consistent ontology or taxonomy or whatever the appropriate word would be (I'm not very familiar with the technical language of information science). However, I would appreciate subtags as that would limit the number of top-level tags I use and make the organization of many many bookmarks easier.

A folder tree or some kind of organizing option similar to what is commonly used in operating systems would make this usable.
I often want to see all of my bookmarks in a simple drop-down, organized list, not a long wordy multi-page, scroll down to find system.
Thanks for all your inputs. We value your involvement to make diigo as powerful as possible.
We are racking our brains to think out better ways to organise all items.
The current solution of the hierarchical management system is to make bookmarks with several tags. For example, you want to buy cheap home appliance and come across a TV discount advertisement. You can bookmark the specific url with tag TV and appliance. It is the same with refrigerator. In advanced search mode,you can use tag:word1 tag:word2
to pick out those bookmarks you exactly want.
Still, the approach is not straight forward enough. Alternative approaches
are in consideration. How do you think about those methods listed below?
1) a hierarchical system of tags That is to say, a tag have many subtags.
2) sublist, an extended function of list but the feature will cost a lot of
resources to support
3) filter out bookmarks with tags from a specific list. In other words, you
can name a list fruit and pick out bookmarks with tag apple, orange

Thank you for posting.

Whether it's folders or an option to sort by topic, ranking, etc. it would be helpful in organizing the bookmarks. Maybe if the tagging option wasn't a long list that made be scroll down on my screen, then the tagging would be more effective. I try to use similar tags so there is not an exhasted list, but it doesn't seem to be helping.
howard hertz commented
Can someone tell me how to delete a list?
Rico Robles commented
Thank you for posting that information.
Allison Bakke commented
I agree. The way Diigo lists notes is atrocious. It cuts off titles, wastes tons of white space on the screen and sorts them by date instead of by any order that makes sense to ME. I'd love the option of a folder tree, or at least a list view that is compact, groupable and sortable.
