Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

Bookmarks???

  • Opera Developer 24.0.

    How do I add/view/manage/search bookmarks???

  • Opera only has a bookmark bar ... it has to be enabled in opera:flags and then turned on in settings. You can install extensions to have a more traditional display and to manage them properly.

  • Hahaha... This topic again...

    @sgunhouse there's no need to enable anything in opera:flags, please update your reference sheet! :)

    Just go to Settings via Opera's menu. The option to enable the bookmarks bar will be there under user interface.

    Or... Like myself, you could use the Speed Dial page to store, manage and search your "bookmarks". You can make folders by dragging and dropping an item over another, or right-click the tab bar to save all the open tabs as a Speed Dial folder. Typing in the URL/search bar will show the pages you saved there as suggestions.

    Or, if you don't need sorting you can use Stash, and there's a flag to enable the address bar to suggest Stash items too.

    What a painful way to implement bookmarks to satisfy touch devices at the expense of the traditional desktop.
    I understand your solutions but isn't this just a compromise.

    Isn't Speed Dial "a set of visual bookmarks that is displayed every time you open a new tab, giving you quick access to your favorite websites and extensions"....the key word here being favorite??

    Isn't stash meant as a temporary store of a page you want to come back to but not permanently bookmark??

    I thought these were enhancements to bookmarks, not a place to store all your bookmarks.

  • Well we don't share the same opinion.

    The thumbnails are useful even on non-touch, mouse pointer only computer. They make it easier to spot and recognize the pages you stored than a favicon+title traditional kind of sorting.

    It makes managing sessions more efficient for me.

    If you like other Opera functionality but isn't happy with this set of bookmarking tools you can get an extension like "Neater Bookmarks" to add a button for displaying, searching and managing bookmarks. It isn't available on the Opera add-ons store, only in the Chrome extensions catalog, but there are ways to install it.

    It's not about having a mouse triggered bookmarks menu, it's the stupidity of what I have to do
    to get searchable bookmarks.

    The speed dial is only useful for a limited number of bookmarks as it was designed for.
    The only way for me to search my bookmarks in the address bar is to create a folder of my numerous bookmarks in speed dial.
    It's pointless to use speed dial to fumble through hundreds of unsorted bookmarks so why make me clutter speed dial just so I can search my bookmarks in the address bar.

  • It's pointless to use speed dial to fumble through hundreds of unsorted bookmarks
    Unsorted? My Speed Dial is organized in folders. It's only 1 level deep, but it can be sorted...

    I agree, the bookmarks from the bookmarks bar and other locations should be searchable from the address field, but they haven't implemented it as of now.

    I'm talking about the import feature.
    Add to your post count in some other thread..... you may think you know everything about opera but frankly you're
    just a pain in butt.

  • Oh, rafael is one of the (other) mods here - he doesn't need to worry about post count any more than I do. (I had 70,000+ in the old forum over 10+ years - at some point post count doesn't matter. No, I didn't have the most posts, but I didn't care about trying to catch Tamil - it wasn't possible.)

    The import from Opera bookmarks can import folders - though as stated only one level deep. If you try to import a folder with subfolders, the subfolders get flattened (dumped into the main folder you chose to import). Haven't tried to import from other browsers, so don't know about that.

  • frankly you're just a pain in butt
    My pleasure. ;)

    You don't really think I care about a childish thing like that right? That can't be serious...
