How I Solved the Bookmark Issue In Opera 33

  • @haleba

    Note to others with this issue: V7 Bookmarks does not sort (or see) bookmarks outside of the main bookmarks folder/Speed >Dial areas, so imported sessions and Opera bookmarks aren't sorted. but once they're moved to the primary bookmarks area >you're set with one click.

    Imported bookmarks are on bottom menu, because that button is rarely used (when importing)

    Didn't notice that features. Apologies. But the operational note stands for bookmarks in the primary work area of the extension, i.e. once the Other Bookmarks are in the work area sorting would only affect them. Please correct if this is wrong.

    @bbildman

    Understood your method: my replies were to the add-on comments about V7 Bookmarks that addresses my vexation about manual sorting.

    I use the Speed Dial for priority-order bookmarks. I'm the opposite on using drop-downs because I have so many sub-folders I find it difficult to get my mouse pointer lined up to run through them and almost always go to browsers' bookmark manager feature to pull up sub-folder links.

  • What I did was to copy my Bookmarks (including Subfolders) to the Bookmarks Bar,

    Can you tell me how to do this?

  • rif, what I did was to open the Opera native bookmark manager, (cntrl-shift-B) and snimply dragged the Imported Bookmark folder onto the Bookmarks Bar, from there you can change the name of the folder as you wish. At that point, you will have a Bookmark folder on the Bookmark Bar. That new tab/folder can be clicked and you will have a dropdown box with all of your imported bookmarks including subfolders.

    let me know if I am not clear as to how to do it.

    np.
    yes, I excluded Imported bookmarks folder from sorting (on settings page) and also canceled/grayed Sort button on panel when Imported bookmarks are active.
    There is still active sort command on right click menu

    At the time when I was writing this extension, opera didn't had sort functionality.
    I thought it will stay restrictive, something like Unsorted folder (users were not allowed to drag something in it, now it's possible)
    Imported folder wasn't visible if it was empty (also changed in newest Opera versions)
    I'm not sure if should be sorted from settings page with all others (maybe users want to have original structure imported and then organize it in default/main Opera folders...
    ...but I think I'll make it possible from panel button at least

    It won't let me drag the Imported Bookmark to either the actual bookmark bar or to the bookmark bar folder

  • Is there any option to move saved Speed Dial from OPERA LINK to sync.opera.com?

    Go to sync.opera.com/web and import your Link dsta.

  • Hey, I don't have that option?!

    Sorry, my bad. I guess you can only import bookmarks.

    You will have to re-add them manually.

  • Ok, you didn't help me... Why are you trying to answer people, when you are even not working for Opera?

  • This is a user forum. You get help from users, not Opera staff here. From your attitude though I don't think you'll be getting much help from anyone anymore.

  • I need help from people who knows things about opera. And this is offical opera forum so people from opera should help us. Thanks for nothing.

  • people from opera should help
    Thanks for nothing.

    You get what you pay for. But please, be an even bigger jerk about it. I'm sure that will really make people want to help you.

    Goodbye.

  • What I did was to copy my Bookmarks (including Subfolders) to the Bookmarks Bar, and when I now click on the Bookmarks tab on the Bar, all of my Bookmarks appear in a dropdown menu, just like in O12.
    If someone can show me how to upload an image here, I can display it for y'all. Also included on my bookmarks bar are a few of the Subfolders I often use, so I don't have to navigate the normal Bookmark tab.

    Hi. Opera newbie. When you say "copy my Bookmarks (including Subfolders) to the Bookmarks Bar"- how do you do that exactly? In the bookmark tab, when I "copy" a folder, it doesn't give me the paste option on the bookmark bar. The browser is fast, but the Bmarks are a PITA.
    Thanks in advance.- AJD

  • how do you do that exactly? In the bookmark tab, when I "copy" a folder, it doesn't give me the paste option on the bookmark bar.

    You do it in the bookmarks manager by using Ctrl + C/Ctrl + V.
