delicious: current functionality for me
children of dune - leto 1
Functioning for Me

1.) So most of my tags are back, but not all of them yet. At least, I don't think so, but I can't tell sine hey, they were in bundles, but currently arranged by number I know I had tags with less than the lowest number showing, so.

2.) Bundles still gone.

3.) Now to 25 links a page, which I can deal with, though I prefer 100.

Still, Though

I am not fond of the spacing on these; the older one was easy to skim down and it used space efficiently. This one pushes everything center and leaves massive white space on either side for no good reason I can figure out. It also feels--I think (hope) this is an illusion) that there is more useless white space to the right than left and so I keep feeling vaguely lopsided. Look, I professionally test web programs for things like that, so it's my own weird sensitivity, but oh, do I want to defect it.

No ability to mass change anything that I can see; is there a way other than the API to rename links?

Javascript Help

Okay, mea culpa, the thing delicious does now where if you click on Tag in your browser toolbar it immediately saves before you can add attributes is not working for me because I have it in a very perfect place that I also sometimes hit by accident and now it just insta saves. Anyway, I wrote my own version using the API and put it in a bookmarklet on my toolbar, but while I can pass the url of teh page I'm bookmarking, it will not for God or man pass the title or name of that webpage no matter what I do; i have to manually type it and that makes me sad. I also can't--and this is so embarrassing--keep it from going to the API page on submission; I want to confirm the response, but--more embarrassing--I cannot remember what to do to keep it from going there but send me the confirmation so I can set it to autoclose.

Also, when did delicious implement that your tag can have spaces in it? I feel like an idiot that I didn't realize that. My tags can have spaces in them! At least, they can right now.

Code below cut for anyone who might know how to get that damn title to populate. And the HTTP response, that too. Currently it has all API functionality but the timestamp bit, because I haven't added the script to populate it with the current date/time.


<script type="text/javascript">
function closeWin(){window.close();}</script>
<style type="text/css">
<p class="one">Save Link</p>
<form name="myform" action="https://username:password@api.del.icio.us/v1/posts/add?" method="get">
<p>URL:<br /><input type="text" name="url" value="" size="60"/>
<script type="text/javascript">
<p>Name:<br /><input type="text" name="description" value="" size="60"/>
<script type="text/javascript">
<p>Notes:<br /><textarea rows=3 cols="44" name="extended" value=""/></textarea></p>
<p>Tags:<br /><input type="text" name="tags" value="" size="60" /></p>
<p><input type="checkbox" name="private" value="yes" />Private?</p>
<p><input type="checkbox" name="replace" value="yes" />Replace?</p>
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />
<button type="reset" value="Reset">Reset</button>
<input type="button" value="Cancel" onclick="closeWin()" />

Not having the bundles is killing me. I despise the changes to delicious. Grrr.

I have 100 tags visible on the side panel and when I view all. I should have 989. This is just not an acceptable number of my tags recovered.
Bundles! *sobs*

omfg. o. m. f. g.

I've been ~elsewhere mentally and then physically and am only now surfacing to this... clusterfuck.

I'm going back through your posts and just want to say THANK YOU omg.

Can I ask possibly a very stupid question though? I'm beginning to be able to find my saved stuff, still not sure if it's all of it, but one of the ways I used Delicious (apparently, was addicted to using it haha) was to track various tags in real time with my subscriptions. Is there any way to do that now? I thought creating a ~stack might help so I made a quick one but that's still not giving me the option of following anything? I follow new saves in a (scarily long) list of fandoms at the moment and I... well. I mean, other people did that too right? Follow new saves for various pairings/fandoms?!?!

I can't even tell when things it's showing me with Search were saved... like are they from today or is it all random. Sooo fucked up omg.

I'm sensing no consensus yet on somewhere else to go? But I've literally not read my flist or around fandom in over a month. :(

p.s. today after I wrote this, all my saved links and tags suddenly appeared. no subscription stuff yet but I noticed they have a note on their support blog now to the effect they did save all subscriptions and are I guess working out bugs and then need to make the functionality visible to us again? I wrote them an email ahaha asking when/if they were really going to do that. I don't expect to hear but figure the more who complain the better...
