I have the bookmarks add-on installed and have a couple of questions.

First, the Bookmark "star" appears at the bottom of the page but seems to work only for admin accounts (the "Add bookmark" link appears which leads to the bookmark popup). I've been through Global privileges and the Feature, Forum and Member and Site options config but don't see bookmarks mentioned anywhere nor can I find anything in the tutorials about setting permissions for this feature.

The second issue is that the bookmark popup does not auto-populate the "Page link" field. Most users won't know what to do to complete the bookmark. From a usability standpoint, it would be best if the member didn't even see the Page link field and just set the Folder and Title fields.

First issue, I'd check permissions on the bookmarks page. Second issue, fixed in latest patch I believe.

The default footer template just guards it with:

Code

         {+START,IF,{$ADDON_INSTALLED,bookmarks}}{+START,IF,{$NOT,{$IS_GUEST}}}

It must be installed (and that won't vary with login), and the only other thing is it makes sure you're not a Guest.

I think I may have misunderstood. Is it the star appears for all, but only is clickable for admins?

Thanks, Chris. It works perfectly. I'll check that the 'Page link' field auto-populates when I upgrade this weekend.

Thanks for your help.

I can confirm that the second issue (empty page link) is resolved by version 7.1.4.

I'm not sure that displaying the page link is of any real benefit to the typical user. You might consider simplifying this with just the folder and title fields available.

I would also like to see the site bookmarks moved to the main_screen_actions block where it would be seen and, probably, used a great deal more - it's kind of hidden at the bottom of the page.

I realize this would be an issue for bookmarking the front page and maybe some other areas that I have not yet experimented with but I do think this would be an improvement (even if it was redundant).

I just noticed that this does not work on the ocPortal forums - the star is visible but it does nothing. There was another thread (View topic: Mark a forum topic as important - ocPortal) a week or so ago asking for the ability to "bookmark" threads and this should do the job if it works.

Didn't notice the star thingy till you pointed it out in this thread. I clicked in Forum here and it stalled out going to google translate.

Just wanted to raise the fact that the bookmarks don't work in the ocPortal forums. They would be mighty handy to track important posts.
