How to add bookmarks to Diigo on iPhone

1. Set up the “Post to Diigo” button http://www.diigo.com/tools/post_to_diigo or “Diigolet” button http://www.diigo.com/tools/diigolet in Safari or IE browser on your computer

Note:   “Post to Diigo” is for easy posting.  “Diigolet”  has the advantage of not jumping to another page, although other functions not working. The choice is yours.

2. Sync bookmarks with your iPhone. Follow the instruction by Apple: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1386 If you experience problem in this step, try to remove all your bookmarks on iPhone, then, sync again.

3. When you browse through the web on iPhone:

  • Go to your bookmarks menu
  • Find “Post to Diigo” or “Diigolet” button
  • Click it to add bookmark to your Diigo account

  1. A simpler solution is to follow this link (the page will fail to load, this is good): http://somesite.com/?javascript:(function()%20%7Bvar%20url%20=%20location.href;var%20title%20=%20document.title%20%7C%7C%20url;var%20desc%20=%20(window.getSelection%20?%20window.getSelection().toString()%20:%20document.getSelection%20?%20document.getSelection()%20%20:%20document.selection.createRange().text);window.location.href%20=%20%27http://www.diigo.com/post?url=%27%20+%20encodeURIComponent(url)%20+%20%27&title=%27%20+%20encodeURIComponent(title)%20+%20%27&desc=%27%20+%20encodeURIComponent(desc)%7D)()

    Now, on your iPhone, add the page that just failed to load to your bookmarks.
    Edit the bookmark, removing everything preceding the ? (question mark)

    Save and go to a page you want posted to Diigo. Open your bookmarks and select the new bookmark you just made.

  2. To clarify more:

    Click the link above from within your iPhone safari browser.

    Remove everything preceding the ? (question mark) *and the question mark itself*.

    Don’t worry. We’ll get through this.

  3. I do not want to sync my bookmarks. I have different bookmarks on my iPhone than my computers, but there are occasions where I want to add a site I found on my iPhone to my computers. I was hoping I could get around the email link option on my iPhone and use Diigo.com instead. Not possible…?

    thanks alot

  5. 1. From iPhone: press and hold the post to Diigo link above to open it in a new page. It will fail, but go ahead and add it as a bookmark.
    2. Edit the bookmark removing everything before, and including the question mark.
    3. Rather than using the m.diigo.com site I use rss. Go to diigo.com/user/yourusername (no ‘m.’). Click on a tag. In the upper righthand corner click the orange rss button. This will load your bookmarks for that tag as a rss feed page. Bookmark it, and repeat for each desired tag.

  6. Hey! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all
    your posts! Keep up the superb work!

  7. Thanks for some other fantastic post. The place else may anyone get that
    kind of info in such an ideal approach of writing? I’ve a presentation subsequent week,
    and I am at the search for such information.
