    Migration of Bookmarks?

    steve_ssh

      Similar to a post I made regarding migration of Private Messages:

       

      Unless I'm missing something, it appears as though none of the bookmarks that I had saved under the previous forum system have been migrated over to the new system.

       

      Is this something which is confirmed/known?

       

      If bookmarks carrried over for someone else, perhaps someone could offer a tip for where I should be looking for them.

       

      Thanks to all & best,

          Thanks Steve, I'll look into it.

           

          beverly and BeatriceBeaubien, I believe I had chatted with you about Bookmarks. Can you confirm or deny if any of your previous bookmarks have come through?

            matthew_odell, I don't believe I had any old bookmarks from the previous Jive incarnation for TechNet.

             

            steve_ssh: do you know where to see your bookmarks, or are you just not seeing these ported from the old incarnation?

              Hi Beverly,

               

              Thank you for the help.

               

              I don't know where is the 'official' place to see my bookmarks, but I *think* that I am looking in the proper place, and it appears that my bookmarks were not ported over from the old incarnation.

               

              What I've seen is this:

               

              If I go to the search field in the menubar, I am shown a popover which has the title "Your Browse History and Bookmarks".

               

              This popover has three main sub-links:

               

                 1) Frequently Viewed

                 2) Recently Viewed

                 3) Bookmarked

               

              The first two provide the expected responses.

               

              The third, Bookmarks, shows me a list of the one test bookmark that I tried just now, in the new system.  Before bookmarking anything in the new system it displayed a message telling me:

               

                "You haven't bookmarked anything yet."

               

              I was expecting to see some sort of access to the items that I had bookmarked in the previous system.

               

              Perhaps there is another point of access to check?

               

              For what it is worth:

               

                 While it would be nice to have access to my old bookmarks in the new system, it won't be a giant loss for me if the bookmarks are not carried over.

               

              Thanks everyone, and kind regards to all,

                Apparently *my* browser doesn't support the popover you see in the search field (thanks DarrenTerry )

                 

                I get there from here:

                 

                View Profile -> More -> Bookmarks

                 

                viewProfile_more_bookmarks.png

                 

                And you may be correct that the old bookmarks weren't ported over.

                  FWIW: I'm not only using bookmarks, but the ability to filter by categories and tags (along with custom streams and/or following) seem to make it easy to go back to what I want to see.

                    Hi Beverly,

                     

                    Thank you for the screenshot and instructions.  I hadn't seen that means to get at the bookmarks.

                     

                    Still no ported bookmarks, but I'm happy to have learned a new way to navigate the new system.

                     

                    Thanks!

                      Hi Matt. I don't think so. I do have one bookmark, but I could have sworn I had more. (It's no biggy for me.)

                        I agree.  The new site seems to have some rather powerful search tools/features, and I expect that these tools will help me get to what I need, with or without my old bookmarks.

                          Hey Steve,

                           

                          I'm working with support to research this issue. They asked for some information about if the person could remember any of the documents they had bookmarked in the past. Do you possibly remember this?

                           

                          Thanks

                            Hi Matt,

                             

                            Thank you for the follow up.

                             

                            Off the top of my head, I do not remember any of my bookmarked posts.  Now that the question has been raised, however, I expect that in the coming days I might remember some of them.  If I latch on to something that I feel certain about, I will post back or send you a message.

                             

                            Thank you,

                              Hey Matt, I lost my one remaining bookmark sometime in the last five days. *Poof*. It's gone. Making more...

                                Hi guys, I've been in touch with support on this, and they mentioned that Beatrice, you have bookmarked this record, and Steve, you have bookmarked this: ** NEW ** - Updated Virtual Host for FMS13 guide and tool

                                 

                                When you go to your profile. I can also see on these pages that you've bookmarked them. When you go to your profile and click on More > Bookmarks, do you see these records?

                                 

                                Thanks,

                                  Hi Matt,

                                   

                                  Thank you again for all of your rcent help.

                                   

                                  The book mark does indeed appear in my list of bookmarks.  Moreover, it appears as though my full set of bookmarks from before the cutover to the new system has been restored, which is really great news.

                                   

                                  Thank you.

                                   

                                  Very best,
