NEW: Move bookmark + new look links

18 August 2021

Hello again! Here are a couple of updates:

1. New look bookmark links

If you're using markfolder.com on desktop/laptop, the "three dots" menu on each bookmark is now gone. Instead, now you can just hover your mouse over a bookmark and access the same links gain. That's 50% fewer clicks!

Hover bookmark links

If you're using markfolder.com on a tablet or phone, then you will still see the "three dots" menu, but it's been moved to the bottom right of the bookmark. This makes it easier to reach with your thumb, and it looks tidier. Tap on it to open up the usual bookmark links.

Tap bookmark links

2. Move bookmark to new folder

You can now move a bookmark to a different or new folder. Just hover over a bookmark (or tap the three dots menu on mobile) to access the bookmark links, then click on the "Move" button.

Let me know what you think!

With great pleasure, I'd like to announce the arrival of Markfolder Pro, the premium version of Markfolder that will unlock so much more for your Twitter curation and organisation.

The first Pro feature, Keyword Search, is live! Use it to find bookmarks containing specific keywords, and it will return results from all folders.

  • And the new Search 🔎 icon will take you to the new Search feature, available to Pro users.

2. Small change in the T&C

There is also a small change in our Terms of Service. Please review the Payment, Refunds, and Plan Changes section and make sure you're happy with it.

New menu layout

16 June 2021

A new and neater menu layout

All your folders can now be found by clicking the folder 📁 icon in the menu bar.

Everything else have now moved into the single dropdown menu button on the top right (or bottom-right on mobile devices) to keep things neat and tidy.

New grid layout, and a visual refresh

12 May 2021

What’s new? Lots!

Bye bye baby blue

That blue gradient background has been with us since we launched 8 months ago, but to be honest, it was a bit naff. So here’s a newer, more chilled out, background colour called “Cultured”. Yep, that’s its actual name. Like it?

On some browsers, you may have to clear the browser cache to see this change. If you're still seeing the blue gradient backgorund, please clear your browser's cache.

(See cache clearing instructions for Chrome/Brave and Firefox).

Grid view!

This is the big one! You can now view your bookmarks as a list or as a grid! The Grid View is perfect for viewing colelctions of images, but it's available for all your bookmarked tweets.

To view your bookmarks in Grid View, just click on this icon under the folder title:

Grid view icon

Markfolder remembers the current view for each folder, so every time you come back to the folder, it will display your bookmarks in the latest view layout you chose for it.

Grid View is not currently available when viewing on mobile phones, but please do let me know if you think it should also be enabled for mobile viewing.

New mavigation menu

There's now a new menu, and here's how it looks, depending on which device you're viewing it on. To get to the page with all your folders, just click on "My Folders" in the menu.

On desktop, the menu is shown right at the top:

Desktop menu

On tablet, access the menu under the "burger" menu icon (the 3 horizontal lines):

On mobile, it's at the bottom of the screen:

Folder actions have been reorganised

The actions on folders have also been slightly rearranged. Under the folder name, you'll see these icons:

Folder actions icons

Here's what they are for:

Folder actions, settings Change the folder's title.

Folder actions, privacy Make folder public or private.

Folder actions, layout Change the layout to grid or rows (available on larger screens only).

If you forget what they're for, just tap the "Help" link to display the explanations again.

Images are now in a grid

If the bookmarked tweet contains images, all images are now shown in a 2x2 grid. This prevents large images from taking up the whole screen, and it makes the grid view a bit neater.

Folder actions icons

Bookmark actions moved to top right

And finally, all the bookmark info and the delete link have been moved into the "..." menu at the top right of the bookmark. This makes bookmarks much neater while viewing and browsing them.

Phew, that's quite a bit of new stuff. What do you think? Like it or hate it, please let me know by email or on Twitter!

New: Change your folder title

11 February 2021

Well, finally, you can change your folder title!

  1. In your folder, under your folder title, click on the new "Gear" icon to open up the folder settings form.

  2. Change the name of the folder title and then click on the "Update folder settings" button.

  3. Refresh the page to see the new folder title. That's it!

New: Folder settings form and easy access to the public URL

11 February 2021

You will notice that in your folders, the "padlock" icon has moved down under the folder title, next to a new "gear" icon to change folder settings.

Your folder privacy is now changeable inside this new settings form.

On public folders, you will also notice that the public address (link) for the folder is now displayed under the folder title. So no need to open up the form if you just need to get to the folder's public link. Much quicker!

New: PUBLIC FOLDERS!

9 February 2021

Exciting news! You can now share your bookmarked tweets with public folders!

Why is this exciting? Because this makes it really easy now for you to curate and share interesting tweets with your friends, or the world! Here are some things you can do with public folders:

  • Collect tweets for research that you can share with your colleagues.
  • Put all shout-outs that mention you into one folder that you can link to from your website.
  • Bookmark testimonials people make about you on Twitter and have it linked from your LinkedIn profile.
  • Have a Pinterest-like collection about anything, and share it with people.
  • Collect inspiring quotes that you and others can refer back to from time to time.

Here's one I made earlier: Lego Inspiration Public Folder

How to create a public folder

Easy. You can make any of your folders public by following these steps:

  1. Go to https://markfolder.com/folders to see all your folders. Click into the folder that you want to make public.

  2. In the folder, you will notice a new "lock" icon to the right of the folder title. By default all folders are private, so you should see a "Locked" icon that looks like this:

    Folder privacy icon

  3. Click on the lock icon to reveal the folder's privacy settings, and then under "This folder is", select "Public":

    Click the icon

  4. You will now see the public folder settings. Provide a public folder name for your public folder. This name will be part of the web address (URL) of your public folder's sharable link. Only letters, dashes and underscores are allowed in the folder name. Click "Update folder privacy" when you're done.

    Public folder settings

  5. You will also see the public folder address under the folder name. The link will only work after you click "Update folder privacy". Share this address. You can also click on this address to open the public folder in a new tab.

    Public folder address

  6. You will also notice that the "lock" icon next to the folder title is "unlocked", indicating that the folder is public.

  7. Now when you're back to your folders listing, you will notice that your new public folder will be marked as "public" to make it easier for you to identify it.

    Public folder in listing

    You will also notice the folders listing has a new layout, with the folder name on top and the folder's privacy and number of bookmarks in each folder below the title.

  8. Lastly, I have removed the folder selector dropdown from the top of the page. Now when you need to move from one folder to another, just click in the menu under your name (or under the menu link) and then click on "Folders". Or just go to https://markfolder.com/folders.

    Link to Folders page

    The "Bookmarks" link in the menu have also been removed as you can access your bookmarks through the Folders page. These are changes to make Markfolder much cleaner and simpler to use.

I am looking forward to seeing all the interesting and exciting public collections you create.

Feel free to share them on Twitter by replying to @markfolder with your public folder links and I will be happy to retweet (as long as they are in line with Twitter's content policy of course).

As always, I would love to hear what you think about this feature and how you're using Markfolder in general. Good AND bad! Email your comments to farez@markfolder.com.

Thank you.

Farez (@farez), Creator of Markfolder.

PS: Coming soon: more customisation options, including changing your username and folder titles.
