Are Favorites Editable?

  • In this (looooong) period while Opera Link doesn't work and we have to access our favorites via a webpage, is there a way to edit them? Thanks.

  • Why do you have to access your favourites via a web page? You can edit them on the Bookmarks Bar.

    They are not editable on Opera Link.

  • I don't have a Bookmarks Bar and don't see a way to activate it. I see the Bookmarks Manager button at the right of the address bar. I've searched settings, extensions, and more tools and don't see a way to activate the Bookmarks Bar.

    bookmarks bar is by default active in all new builds (I'm sry if I overlook something, don't have time to check it now)
    All you need to do is go to Settings (from O menu), and scroll a little until you see ckeck box for show Bookmarks Bar (I have different language, I think it is that term)
    here is a screenshot from my Opera

    If by any chance, you don't have that, go to experiments and enable Bookmarks Bar flag first
    enter opera://flags in address bar and in search box serach for "bookmarks bar"

    then go to settings and enable it...but I'm sure in any new Opera Build (dev, next, stable), that flag is enabled by default

  • btw. that button at the end of address box is not for bookmark manager..... heart is for stash, and that icon with little squares is for speed dial...when you click on any of those, current page will be saved in stash or in speed dial

  • Thanks. I don't know how I didn't see it. I'll be more careful.
    Well, the bar, and my manager shows that I don't have any bookmarks (I've had to reinstall everything on this pc recently) yet Opera Link shows them all. Is there a way to get them from Opera Link back into the browser? Thanks for all your help!

    No, link works only with Opera presto, new Opera have new sync feature that is still in development
    and you can't import HTML bookmarks file in new Opera (some extensions allow it, like this one)
    best/easy way to import your bookmarks into new Opera is to copy bookmark file from chrome (or any chromium) profile folder into opera profile folder...if you have chrome/chromiums

    If not...well...then you need to import them from old Opera
    add coomand line switch to your Opera desktop shortcut in right click>>properties>>target
    --presto-small-prefs-dir=ROAMING_PROFILE_DIR

    ...and start Opera (new) with that shortcut...it will take couple of seconds to import bookmarks, logins...

    notes:
    1) you need space after your opera path in target field
    2) command line switch is NOT under path quotes
    3) ROAMING_PROFILE_DIR is Opera profile folder in C:\Users\USAR_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera (usually is like that)
    4) if you have 64x version of opera, rename that folder so it doesn't contain space
    5) after you done importing, remove command line switch from shortcut...or it will start process again

    but it would be much easier to import file from chrome
