Wow! Now that is a whole lot of info! Can't imagine the time this must take to make and keep current! Thank you! Also a lot easier to do than I thought it would be.

Yes, it has taken a lot of time; but that has been spread out over the years.

It does take a lot of reading also, on threads that aren't necessarily of interest to me at the moment.

I am just happy that you enjoy it, and can make use of it.

IIRC, when I export the index, I get a report that it contains 5,000 some odd links.

See you in Galena, I am gone gone....

John,
You have done a great job. It took a great effort on your part and should benefit many people with problems!!
Just skimming through the index last night, I found answers to several things that have baffled me for a couple of years. Many thanks.
I downloaded using the 'link' in your first post. Since reading some of the comments, I noticed you have other 'links?' posted. Should I delete the original and download the latest?
I apologize, but I'm not very computer literate.
Thanx again for all your efforts
Jim

The later dated links contain everything the earlier links did.

They just have additional bookmarks that were added.

I change the links spasmodically when the notion strikes me. Usually every 3 months or so. Depends on how much I think the additional information I have is worth...

A comment on replacing an existing bookmarks folder in your browser.

I would rename the current "Motorcycles" bookmark to "Motorcycles old",
then import the new bookmarks into your browser.

If you have not made any special indexes of your own, and the new upload went well, then delete the old bookmark folder.

I use OPERA as a browser it took 9 seconds to download. Then opens like a web page with a nice list of links.

Thanks

You should not be seeing a WebPage, you should import it into Opera and then it will be a series of Bookmarks with titles.

Yes, you can look directly at the downloaded file, but that is an excruciating way to try and find something you want.

I installed Opera just to see what you are talking about and wrote the following.


Opera Bookmarks

Click on the top left corner, (Customize and Control Opera)



Go to More TOOLS

Select Import Bookmarks

Click the down Arrow and select HTML files.

Make it look like this













Now go thru your computer folders until you find the bookmarks file you downloaded, on your Desktop?
In a special Download folder? No matter where, select it like shown below






Click on OPEN and then DONE.

You should now be able to view the imported bookmarks.
But right here, I am going to have to say that the method that Opera chose do display Bookmarks is so convoluted as to make me go insane.
It does not honor "Settings" and stay in List View, it keeps defaulting back to Thumbnail view.
And it does not use the standard bookmark display that all the other browsers do.


I highly encourage you to install this bookmark file in Firefox and use it from there, even if the only reason you do so is to view the Forum's Indexed bookmarks.


this is how Opera displays the Bookmarks






Contrast this type of Bookmark view to those of the other browsers that I showed in the Forum Index thread.





I apologize for the fuzzy view, but when Bookmarks are opened in any browser, and you try to do a Screen Capture with the "Alt-ScrnPrint" buttons, the bookmarks disappear.

So, I used a camera and the camera is so fast, it only catches every other screen line display, or half the actual image.... I need to experiment with Long Exposures on making screenshots with a camera.


If you want to see the original CAMERA IMAGE file, click on this link:
It is ten times better to look at.

I, as a noob, appreciate the work you have done in this area. Thanks.

Today is the oldest you've ever been, yet the youngest you'll ever be, so enjoy this day while it lasts.
