Create New Folder when Bookmarking Page


  • Vivaldi Ambassador

    Ability to create a new bookmarks folder from the dialog box when bookmarking a page, instead of having to go to the bookmarks page to create one.

    Yes, this one gets me all the time. I have very few complaints about Vivaldi, but this one repeatedly gets in my way.

    Thanks,

    Really, I miss that option, mainly I like bookmark everything (lol) and wanna a thing more organized in an easier way.



  • This is a must. It is a pain and illogical to create a folder, then go back to the tab and be able to bookmark it in the new folder.

    **ALSO while adding bookmark, should be able to:

    1. Rename a folder
    2. Move folders
    3. Delete folders**

    But at least give us the function to add a new folder please.

    Thanks.

    @washere Use the Bookmarks Panel for organising bookmarks. Drag and Drop, rename, adding folders, editing URLs, Nicknames, and Titles are all easy in the Bookmarks Panel.

    The Bookmarks Bar has been incomplete since its introduction years ago. This issue is well-known, and often complained about, but it is a low priority because it requires a lot of work to implement, and there are easy workarounds, e.g. by using the Bookmarks Panel or Bookmarks Tab.



  • @pesala Thanks for the tip. That is a good way.

    I can see how a full featured bookmarker will be a lot of work.

    A workaround might be to add an options button to the bookmarker popup.

    Then it closes itself, opens the left bookmark panel, fills in URL & name, and puts the cursor focus there.

    Depending on how it is coded, it might be easier, or not, just an idea.

    I will not hold my breath for the function if it is a lot of work and less urgent that other issues as you inform.

    Thanks again for the tip.



  • @pesala Would it still be a lot of work to include a button next to "delete" in the add bookmark pop-up that would trigger the bookmark panel to open and create the new folder?

    I have no idea how browsers are made, so I can believe that something that seems simple might actually be a massive pain to implement.

    Thanks for the reminder about the bookmark panel btw, I keep forgetting it exists for some reason despite using the other panels constantly.

    If it helps anyone else in this thread, if you right-click on a folder in the bookmarks panel you're given the option to "Bookmark Active Page", which is what I've started doing after creating a new folder.
