Interesting alternative, however I agree that the sidebar should have never been removed from the speed dial. Its infuriating that Opera forces users to always have a sidebar that is completely useless while web browsing, but remove it in the one place that makes sense.
I would also go as far as to advocate that turning on the sidebar after every update regardless of settings is not serviceable. I cannot count the amount of service calls I get about turning it off on the countless machines i've deployed Opera to.
@ugcheleuce said in Opera start page: User configurable web site instead of speed dial:
@leocg No, I remember quite clearly that until my recent re-installation, whenever I opened a new tab, the FVD speed dial was displayed.
That's the case if you're using Opera Developer (v59). Opera blocks FVD Speed Dial's new tab behavior on purpose so that it can't override Opera's speed dial page that has ads/promotions on it. Opera also removed the extension from the addon site. You're basically SOL now.
If you have the nex file (which you can find at web.archive.org), you can still install the extension by dragging the file into Opera. The new tab behavior will still work fine in Opera Stable (57) and Opera Beta (58). But from 59 onward, the new tab behavior won't work. You'll still be able to make FVD Speed Dial load up at startup though by setting Opera to open this specific page chrome-extension://pncpfofkienlinhfknpmgjnjhdoclfhh/newtab.html.
Note though that the real FVD Speed Dial is the Chrome version and that's never worked right in Opera as Opera already blocked its behavior. The Opera version was just to work around Opera's blocking of it.
However, I think this thread is about something different and @sgunhouse answered the OP's question correctly.
sry...I had experimental flag enabled, so I couldn't move bookmarks in Opera native bookmarks manager
that's why I recommended extension
Why can't you multi select your folders and move them?
box-selection (click with mouse in one corner and draw a box)
or selecting each folder with check box
