  9. How to select "All" or "None' of the bookmarks when importing

    How to select "All" or "None' of the bookmarks when importing. It seems like an obvious functionality which is missed. If you have many bookmarks, and you only need one category to be imported, then you will have to unselect all one by one, then select the once you want which is very time consuming and not user friendly

  11. How can i start my small business?

    If you’ve never written a business plan before, the idea alone can be overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be the nightmare of your imagination. Traditionally, a business plan is used to secure funding from a lender or a potential investment.

  14. Searching for a part of a text

    Hello,

    I have a bookmark for a tool called "Cloudfogger".
    So the text "Cloudfogger" is the title of the bookmark in Diigo and is also inside the description.
    The bookmark was added 7 days ago.

    I searched for "Cloud" (on the Diigo Website on "My Library" and also in the Firefox Sidebar on the link "Search".
    But here the entry "Cloudfogger" is not found.
    Also searching for "Cloud*" does not work.

    Searching for "Cloudfogger" returns the entry, but "Cloud" and "Cloud*" do not return this entry.
    Why?

    What can I do so "Cloudfogger" is also found when I just want…

  18. Why aren't links I tag appearing in the general feed of links with that tag?

    I oversee a handful of young people who collectively write a blog about global poverty solutions, called Global Envision. I want us all to use Diigo to tag interesting links as "globalenvision," then display the resulting RSS feed of interesting links in the sidebar of our website.

    I've tried tagging two articles "globalenvision," and I can get them to appear in the RSS of my own links that have been tagged globalenvision: http://www.diigo.com/user/johnatthebar/globalenvision

    However, they don't show up in the general feed of links tagged globalenvision: http://www.diigo.com/rss/tag/globalenvision

    Nor do they appear on the human-readable page: http://www.diigo.com/tag/globalenvision

    What gives?
