Hi,

I'm struggling with how to sort my many bookmarks. Not sure if a bookmark should be in a sub-directory and/or I add multiple tags. I've thought of adding them to generalized directories and then adding as many tags as needed, but am not able to search/select multiple tags in the Library window. Any pointers on what is a good way to do this?

I have things like Coding, Learning, Tools. But then also Git, PHP, Linux. I can't figure out how to sort all these :( Thanks for any input you may have.

Cheers.

I have the same battle although I do not use tags. I have rearranged my bookmarks more than once. The article linked below may help.

You can add multiple tags to a bookmark but I do not think that you can search for multiple tags.

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for the information. However none of it covers my question about filtering by multiple tags. I do know how to use the tagging system and how to search by tag, it's just not possible to do so with multiple tags at the same time.

I've added a feature request and hope to one day see this available.

Have a great one, Sergio
