There is currently too many issues about some bookmark improvement, so I decided to sum it up in one single issue.

  • #17 Integration with Nepomuk - support for saving bookmarks via Nepomuk service on KDE (not really important, will not be implemented by @nowrep)
  • #398 Put "Most visited" folder in bookmark menu - give user option where to show Most Visited folder (Most Visited folder is no longer in bookmarks, only in History menu)
  • #445 Support for multi-level folders
  • #446 URL keywords in bookmarks - support for setting shortcuts/nicks for bookmarks
  • #1087 Re-ordering bookmarks - support for re-ordering bookmarks
  • #1019 Expand/collapse in bookmarks sidebar - Option to toggle expanded/collapsed view in Bookmarks sidebar
  • #1062 Dropdown in bookmakrs toolbar - Show dropdown menu when bookmarks don't fit in toolbar
  • #117 Sorting of bookmarks - sorting bookmarks by name, url, ... (implemented in 9f376ac)
  • #115 Drag&Drop support for sorting bookmarks (implemented in d9ae633)
  • #351 Exporting bookmarks - support for exporting bookmarks in .html format (implemented in b1da23c)

If you have any other suggestions regarding bookmarks, please write it there.
I am planning to completely rewrite bookmarks backend with all these features in mind.

For drag and drop are You planning to do it one by one or also as a group?

I also suggest that "Import bookmarks" feature should be moved from File menu and go to Bookmarks menu.

@smarquespt Drag&Drop for group. And I can also agree with moving import bookmarks action.

I have some issues related to the bookmarks sidebar.

  • When opening bookmark sidebar, it needs to have keyboard focus.

Whether it's on the bookmarks themselves, the "search bookmarks" input, or it's parent so I can just TAB to any of those.

  • when a bookmark item has focus (is selected), ENTER should open the bookmark URL in the current tab.

And include Ctrl+Enter for "open in a new tab" and Shift+Enter to open it in a new window.

I just tested the Ctrl+click and Shift+click and those work as expected.

Another issue I notice:

Menu bar -> Bookmarks -> Right click

Bookmark page is opened. Is this expected?

For me, right click should not open bookmark but a popup menu with some options like Delete ou Organize bookmarks. Maybe only the first.

It's standard Windows behavior.
There won't be any additional menu in bookmarks menu. Bookmarks manager is there for organizing bookmarks.

I like to have bookmarks with folders and subfolders and fields like "tag" and "comment".

Sorting by last added by user would be a great convenience as provided by Firefox or Opera. Otherwise all imported and newly added bookmarks are added at the end which is very inconvenient (at least in my use case).

Instead of constantly pressing just clicking the mouse to keep the drop-down bookmark menus/toolbar bookmarks open.

Deleting and moving bookmarks directly from the drop-down windows.

Creating bookmarks and bookmarks folder directly on the bookmark toolbar.

"Add bookmark here" entry in drop-down windows and/or drag-and-drop tabs to bookmark folders.

I hope you'll please allow 'Sub Folders' to be created under Folders we've created in the Menu... :)

Here's Firefox with Sub Folders under 'Software' as example what we desperately need in QupZilla;

I have a lot of bookmarks, so carefully imported, respecting "Support for multi-level folders", is important for me.

Thanks

Folder icons in bookmark toolbar clutter the window and waste space. Instead of them (or as an option) just this: "v".

It would also be nice if we could have an option in bookmarks menu for "Add to speed dial".

For me the multi-level bookmarks is a must have. In addition to being usable once I bring over my hundreds of bookmarks from Firefox, I was thinking about creating a sync service that would work across multiple browsers (think X-marks, but open source), but QupZilla's flat method of storage makes that impossible. (On a related note, a "LastModified" field would definitely not go amiss.)

Right now I would LOVE to use Qup as my main browser, but bookmark organization and sync is a big deal.

Delete bookmark in batch would also be nice

Now it´s only possible to move bookmarks and not copy.

So the request is Allow copy from bookmarks. This way we could have same bookmark in menu and in toolbar.

Right now if we have many bookmarks in toolbar the text gets cutted. The best approach is the way chrome does it. Add a dropdown menu if the bookmarks number is bigger than toolbar can support.

It occurs to me that unless there's a special utility to upgrade the browser data, the ability to export bookmarks will be essential for a smooth migration to the Qt5 version.

Everything except browsing session is compatible between Qt 4 & Qt 5 builds. So bookmarks won't be lost.

Would it be a better idea to manage bookmarks in a separate bookmark manager (a separate process) that would communicate with QupZilla? as suggested at #980

I started working on it in bookmarks branch.

Bookmarks will now be saved in $PROFILE/bookmarks.json JSON file. The format is compatible with Chromium's Bookmarks file, so it will be very easy to import bookmarks from Chromium.

There will be migration from SQLite bookmarks backend to JSON backend, so you won't loose your saved bookmarks.

@nowrep and everybody else, do you know of a bookmark manager that is able to handle the SQLite table (bookmarks file) of Mozilla?

P.S. a new repository with bookmarks manager of QupZilla (SQLite backend) only would be appreciated and would, probably, be a good ground to build, upon it, a bookmark manager application that would handle the bookmarks file of Mozilla

I can't find the bookmarks sorting anywhere in the current version 1.8.6 - I have loads of imported bookmarks and want to auto sort them alphabetically and recursively (cause they are in subdirectories too)
