  1. importing bookmarks

    is it possible to import only part of my bookmarks from my browser? the diigo import bookmarks dialog box is really not v flexible.

    or would it be possible to re-import the whole lot and replace what is in my diigo library, or would that add on to what is already there. i want to avoid duplication. a lot of my browser bookmarks are already on diigo.

  2. website host requests a new bookmark for the user

    Allow embedding an icon to enable website users to be given an icon to automatically add a page to the bookmarks, with suggested tags. Ideally the icon self disables if the page/section key is already in the diigo users list.

  4. Students change their passwords and then lose them.

    If a student in my class changes his/her password and then forgets the new password, is there any way to retrieve it or reset it if there is no email address connected with the student account? Only the original password displays in teacher console.

    It won’t remove his contents.Just in comparison, it is the same with google
    groups.

  7. How can I fully delete (note just clear contents of) sticky notes in IE and in Chrome?

    OK, yes I'm a newbie, but it shouldn't be this difficult to figure out a basic function! And yes, I searched the help pages. I can create sticky notes fine in both IE (toolbar) and Chrome (extension), but I can't seem to delete one. Are they immortal?

  14. Google Sites integration

    Hi, I am writing a script for Google Sites to get the list of Diigo bookmarks, to be filtered and displayed on a pages. I am using this command to get data from Diigo:

    var response = UrlFetchApp.fetch("https://secure.diigo.com/api/v2/bookmarks?key=my_key&user=Sensorica Group&count=10");

    My user name is Sensorica Group
    Here I replaced the real key by my_key

    When I send this I get the 401
    error ?!

  18. Adding maultiple invitees at a time?

    I do not use Gmail, Yahoo, or Facebook, I use an exchange server at my University, so it is hard to add invitees to my class group one email at a time. Is there an easier way to add groups of invitees from say an Outlook-like distribution list?

    You can export the contact list from outlook and send it to info@diigo.com. We will deal with it at the back-end.

  19. List item lack the "Share" link.

    Why do all items in my lists lack the "Share" link? Items not in a list have the "Share" link. Bug or feature?
