Sync extensions

  • Is there a way how to sync extensions? For example from desktop to laptop. Does opera link even working cause its dont sync speedial, extensions, setting... what does it even sync?

  • No extensions sync currently afaik.

    Opera Link is for Opera Presto, it doesn't work on Opera Blink.

    Really? Why does it implemented already if its not working?

    It was never implemented.

    So what does that sync button (top right under the windows close button) do? Now Im really confused.

  • Opera Link and Opera Sync are two different services. Link was only for the old Opera. Sync is only for the new Opera.

    Taken from the Opera FAQ:

    What data does Opera synchronize between my devices?

    Opera synchronizes bookmarks across all your devices. It merges bookmarks from each device you sign in with. If you install Opera for computers on more than one machine, the browser can also sync your open tabs. Soon, you'll be able to sync more data, like passwords and browsing history. When this happens, we'll let you know.

    With Opera 29 - which may be released as a stable version soon - it syncs bookmarks, speed dials and opened tabs.

    Opera 30 (now in developer stream) syncs all of the above plus history and settings.

  • I'm on Opera 31 and it doesn't appear that my extensions are being synced. Am I missing something? 😕

  • Opera does not sync extensions. The guy who started this thread misread the documentation or something.

    Opera does not sync speed dials either.

  • It does, it just doesn't unify them yet. You can see other speed dials from all of your installs. Unified speed dials is coming though, iirc.

    Its not synchronization. If you cant synchronize stuff between 2 or more devices its not synchronization but only backup.
    But if its working can you tell me how to do it? I cant sync speed dial between devices. Manual copy-paste is not synchronization!

  • Inside the Bookmarks Manager is the entry Other Speed Dials. That is where your synchronized speed dials appear.

    You know that you cant sync speed dials so stop making a fool of me. I know where speed dials are but its useless...

  • You are doing a perfectly good job making yourself look like a fool without my help. As I said there is not yet unified speed dials in Opera. If you can see speed dials in one browser that were created in another, that is sync. You can do that in Opera. Therefor Opera has sync. Its basic and unfinished but there it is.

    Its not synchronizatiuon so dont say that Opera have speed dial synchronization. If you upload files to share servers its not synchronization same as this is not synchronization. Its just uploading speed dial as bookmarks but You cant synchronize them to other devices as speed dial - so no speed dial synchronization (just backup as bookmarks).

    You just cant say: "Yes Opera dont implement speed dial synchronization yet" You have to say: "It has synchronization of speed dial but its not unified yet bla bla bla" - in other words its not working. Its so hard to say that?

  • You can try and change the meaning of the word synchronization all you want but the fact remains that that redefinition only applies inside your own head. To the rest of us Opera has synchronization. If you don't like that why don't you take your constant whining and nitpicking and just leave.

  • Ok can you explan us what synchronization is then?

    You should get yourself checked out by a doctor. You seem to have the inability to retain information, even if it was explained to you just a handful of hours before. But, just for a refresher, I will quote my post from yesterday for you.

    If you can see speed dials in one browser that were created in another, that is sync.

  • opera 31 speed dial not syncing either. opera was so good but now it is going down...
