How to show some bookmarks folder on the Start Bar (Presto)

  • Focus previous widget & Focus panel, "bookmarks" & Insert, "1_ " & Backspace & Delay, 500 & Select all & Delete & Delay, 200 & Focus next widget & Open item & Focus page

    Thank you for your effort, but is this a joke "Select all & Delete" (this will delete all bookmarks). Don't worry I made a backup of my bookmarks prior.

  • Show Popup Menu, "Internal Bookmark Folder", 2

    Is this correct, because it doesn't work (I can't click on it):
    Button3, "OK"="Show popup menu, "Internal Bookmark Folder", 2, "OK", "Folder""

    I have tried replacing "2" with my folder ID (25), but it's still greyout.

  • @torrente, no it won't delete your bookmarks. "Select all & delete" works in text box, it needed for deleting text in the bookmarks bar's Search field (to focus specified subfolder in the bookmarks manager). I tested my button before publication and it worked every time!

  • @stng
    Sorry, I don't have bookmarks bar's Search field, so it deleted my bookmarks, LOL.

  • I'm more interested in this "Internal Bookmark Folder" command, but after numerous tries I still can't make it work.

  • Off topic: this new forum is really ugly. Please delete this post.

  • SOLVED: Thank you @sgunhouse, your method works great.

    I was copying and pasting (same) adr file between Opera 12 and 10, but something went wrong with ID's. Now is OK.

    @everyone
    Just replace "2" with your folder ID (my is 32) which you can find in your bookmarks.adr (Open in Notepad), so in your toolbar.ini it should look like this:

    Button2, "OK"=Show popup menu, "Internal Bookmark Folder", 32

  • You have deleted the search field from bookmarks sidebar panel? This is a pretty non-standard configuration. You need to drag it back (as it enabled by default). Also, you can replace "select all & delete" with "clear" command, so it wont affect your bookmarks even theorically!

    Ps: i dont think that internal bookmarks menu would work!

  • P.p.s i think that my method is still more preferable because you have a far less limiations in the bookmarks sidebar when it's compared with menu.

  • For the record. you can see "Internal Bookmark Folder" mentioned in the button maker dropdown - but choosing that always adds a ", 1" which would make it show the root folder (all bookmarks) Or you can see it used (with Include rather than Submenu) in the default menu file standard_menu.ini. The "32" seems strange there unless it's not actually your first folder - by default I think Trash is first, but on my system I dragged Trash to the end years ago.
