Nicknames to bookmarks

  • Is it possible to give nicknames to bookmarks in Opera version [whatever after 12]?

  • You can edit bookmarks and change their titles, is that what you're asking?

  • It's not possible atm.

    No, I mean like you for instance type 'opera' and it will send you to the forums, if that is your nickname for the forums. Thanks leocg.

  • There might be an extension that does this, I don't know. Something to look into though.

    There is a kludge to get it to do what you want though. Create a custom search engine and assign it a keyword such as 'opera' and simply point it directly to the URL you wish to use. When you type that into the address bar and follow it with a space it will go directly to the URL. So type 'opera ' and hit enter. Its not ideal but it does work.

  • Hm, it actually doesn't work, if I just type the search word it brings me to... Google?!

  • You have to have a space after it. No space = doesn't work. I did mention that.

  • I know this is a very old post, but "nicknames" (or "keywords") is a feature that I'm going to sorely miss if I'm going to make the transition from Firefox.
