Suggestion for feature show in folder for bookmark links ....

  • This is a serious oversight in my opinion…. I have a lot o f bookmark links so say I search my bookmark links inn search box, I cant find out where they are at inn my directories unlike in chrome…..

    This is frustrating honestly….i mean yea opera run smoother than chrome seemingly ….but why does it lack some important features chrome has such as “show in folder” and ”restore session”.

    I hope someone would remedy t hese deficits….

    I have doubts on opera so I’m keeping chrome around just in case….

    V7 Bookmarks will show the folder where a bookmark is if you search for one. It also makes it more convenient to manipulate bookmarks.

  • @concretable i tried v 7 , didnt help.... you can take a screenshot if you think it help...

    this is from chrome bookmark manager....

    in opera bookmark search box , i havent found anything like"show in folder" feature....

    i googled this and found one other opera forum post on this unanswered leaving me to suspect the feature didnt exist and hasnt been implemented thus far...

  • @operauser369 Totally agree. But why restrict yourself to show in folder? I would also like to see something like you can see in the Explorer view when searching, like this:
    (Also include the actual Hyperlink!)


    Also: In the raw data, there is the ADD_DATE already in the data! Why is the date added not visible in the overview? At least give some insight how old an Bookmark is (Mine come still from the very first opera which was ad sponsorred. I think this was way back in 1998-2002? So I have some REALLY old bookmarks 😉
    And of course: Make them sortable by any of the 4 headers! This way one easily can find and identify duplicated or see if the source is the same/ same website address.

  • also the search input doesnt retain memory after i click back unlike chrome for bookmark manager which is quite inconvenient ...why do i have to input anew after clicking back every time ....
