They Built A Better Bookmark Manager!

With at least 3 different browsers in consistent use, our bookmarks and internet favorites were beginning to resemble a fragmented web spun by a spider on some serious methamphetamine:

Messy, messy, messy!

Fortunately for us, LinkStash provides us with a centralized, browser-independent place to store, organize, edit, and maintain our ever-growing collection of websites.

For starters, LinkStash conveniently opens and closes alongside whichever browser we're using at the time. It organizes links into a very familiar Explorer-style tree, and provides fields for tags, comments, ratings, passwords, date last visited and more. A bookmark bar displays the bookmark's properties, docked to the side of the main window. It displays the currently selected bookmark allowing all fields to be conveniently and easily viewed or edited.

A dead link checker means that there's no dead weight cluttering things up. A highlighting option makes select bookmarks super-visible and easy to find. A customizable toolbar lets us arrange our favorite commands in personal, custom arrangements. LinkStash even lets us secure entire bookmark files using strong encryption algorithms.

The improved search can exclude words from the search results. For example "news -politics" (without quotes) finds all bookmarks with the word news but without the word politics. Save your favorite search criteria as a saved search which can then be performed again later with a quick click. The built-in search finds websites visited or bookmarks added in the last 7 days.

A password generator creates strong and extremely customizable passwords. Don't forget that LinkStash can securely store and retrieve your website passwords with each bookmark.

If you have two computers using the same bookmark file, then save the bookmark file to your Dropbox or other similar service. When it's synced LinkStash offers to open it so you can see the changes made by the other computer.

LinkStash doesn't just bookmark your web URLs, it bookmarks your file URLs as well! This means that you can bookmark files, documents, programs and even folders on your hard drive or network share, and have them all available right from LinkStash. You can tag, search, and dead link check these bookmarks the same as you would web bookmarks, and opening a file bookmark launches the associated program!

Give it a try! If you're like us, 5 minutes with LinkStash will mean the end of your Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape, Chrome, and Opera bookmarks. For good!

Sputnik I use this software since about 6 years and I must say that I just like it !

There is somehow an option that I would like very much to be included : I would like an option to collapse (or not) automatically all the subfolders after having selected a bookmark to launch in the navigator.

Actually, after having launched a couple of bookmarks located in different places, many subfolders are opened up and when we search for another bookmark it is becoming bothersome to find it easily because of all these upened up subfolders : at this moment I must collapse manually all these to have a better overview of the basic bookmark tree.

That would be a great improvement.

Maybe it would also be a good idea to add a special button for the standard button bar for closing all the subfolders with only one mouse click, independently from the place we are in the bookmark tree.

These modifications would be, for me, a way to eliminate the only annoyance that this software has from my point of view.

Apart from this, this software is really a must have, considering the value of the software itself and the price at which someone may have it for now.

LS can already do the folder collapsing you desire. There are several methods:

1. Options > Bookmark > enable "Automatically expand and collapse folders" (but see the help file for how this works).

2. Toolbar icon "Collapse all subfolders" (relative to the current node).

3. Keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+- for "Toggle all subfolders" and Ctrl+Shift+- for "Collapse all".

4. Folder menu commands for collapsing subfolders or all branches.

Thank you for your help Scott, but none of your suggestions is really helpful for me.

I strongly repeat here the same comment I previously made (1:44pm) for any XRays representative, so that he doesn't think that your suggestions brought an answer to my problem.

Scott Youngman @ Sputnik
Hmm... I think the first option I listed could help you. If used as described in the help file, only one branch will be expanded at a time, and all other branches collapsed. But I may have misunderstood your request.
Sep 7 2014 at 10:30am Copy Link
Sputnik @ Scott Youngman

I am perfectly aware of the existence of the first option you listed.

This option is just not sufficiently powerful for me because there is at least 4 different operations to do to collapse the entire tree up to the first subfolders in about all the cases.

I would like the introduction of functionnalities which would require only 2 operations or none at all to achieve the same result. Do you understand ?
Sep 7 2014 at 10:43am Copy Link
Scott Youngman @ Sputnik
In the current version of LS, only one click is required to keep all branches but the active one collapsed.

1. Enable Options > Bookmark > "Automatically expand and collapse folders"

2. Click on a folder name or icon in the tree; it is automatically opened, and all others are collapsed.

Caveat 1: You may need to manually collapse any already expanded folders the first time you enable this option. After that it works as described.

Caveat 2: A folder expanded with the "+" symbol remains expanded until manually collapsed.
Sep 7 2014 at 11:07am Copy Link
Sputnik @ Scott Youngman

I also know this option.

When a great amount of subfolders are opened up, there is still the difficulty to find what you are searching for to click on it for closing down all the other subfolders.

But that is anyway a nonsense because if I want to be able to collapse all the subfolders automatically and having nothing to do manually about it, it is exactly for being able to find more easily what I am searching for.

Are you trolling me or what ?

I just don't need your help anymore...

John Williams Sputnik, thanks for the question and feedback. Scott did a great job at answering your questions - thanks Scott - he provided some very useful suggestions. After reading your reply, I understand this isn't a solution for you. I did think Scott nailed it. You ask to simplify collapsing all folders that are opened and for this to be done automatically. Pressing Ctrl+Shift+- (Folder>CollapseAll) collapses all folders from anywhere, *but* it's not an automatic action when you launch a bookmark. If I understand, you want this to happen when you launch a bookmark?

Sputnik @ John Williams


But I have checked this problem again and I think that the automatization of the bookmarks' collapsing would be difficult to achieve if we want something with which the user would be perfectly comfortable.

The reason I say this is because the bookmarks' tree appears at two different places : when you open up LinkStash for launching a bookmark and when you open it up for adding a bookmark to LinkStash.

For a conveniance reason, someone would maybe prefer the tree to be collapsed when he wants to add a bookmark and he would also maybe prefer the tree not to be collapsed when he wants to add a bookmark. The point here is that at the two places (launching and adding) it is exactly the same tree we are talking about and this tree will be shown in its same state at these two different places at a given moment in time.

Before asking to you to add such an option concerning an automatic collpase of the tree, I will think again about this question to find something with which each user would be comfortable.

For the moment, the "Ctrl + Shift + -" option is what is nearer of what I would like for collapsing entirely the tree from anywhere you are in the tree.

The only thing is that I almost don't use any hotkey since I work with a mouse. When I used to work without any mouse 25 years ago, I used hotkeys very often and they were very useful, but at this moment your fingers were always on the keyboard, never leaving it.

Today, with the generalized use of the mouse, leaving the mouse to go on the keyboard for entering an hotkey and then go back again to the mouse is something that breaks the workflow, from my point of view. I know that from the point of view of someone else it may not appears as breaking this workflow, but from my point of view it does and I think that I am not the only one in that case.

Finally, what I would ask from you is simply to add an additional button to the toolbar which would do the same thing as the "Ctrl + Shift + -" hotkey. Someone would at this moment collapse the whole tree from anywhere in it without leaving the mouse.

For my needs, the actual button which is collapsing the tree is doing it only from the place you are in the tree. If you want to collapse the whole tree and that you have a lot of opened subfolders and that you are at the very bottom of the tree you have to get to the very beginning of the tree to collapse it all. Here, I know that the "Ctrl + Shift + -" hotkey would be a faster solution but not the fastest one compared to this new button I would like to see.

Thank you for your precedent answer.

John Williams Garrett, LS can read the webpage title and/or description from the website. You need to click "retrieve from website" in the bookmark properties, e.g. when adding the bookmark to fill in the description. LS supports tags, but it won't get those from the website, you can make up your own or use the existing ones. Tags can be searched, but the next version will allow filtering/viewing bookmarks by tags.

_*_ @Chris Dino, & Mappi75, while I cannot answer lie the developer could, I would suggest you download both and try each one out for yourselves.

For me personally, the main thing that draws to toward LinkStash is its ease of use. Linkman for me was very busy to work with at times.

Linkman appears to have more features, but I did not find myself using most (or remembering most) when I did a trial of the program.

Visually, I think LS looks better overall.

The main thing I like about Linkman is the fact for an additional 50% to the cost you can purchase a Lifetime License. That is the main draw for me personally, but I still lean toward LS.

This is not likely what you two are looking for in an answer, but it is a starting point at least.

Try them both out and make your own decision.

Does the new version support Pale Moon and other browsers less popular than IE, FF, and Chrome?

I am using version 2.1.3 and would like to grab this opportunity to upgrade for today's price. However, I would like to know first, if it will work for me. I'm betting the answer is yes 'cause XRayz Software rocks! (I also use ClipCache).

LinkStash can be installed on USB or any portable device or a desktop. It's not a separate download, just a single download. When you run the installer, it asks if you want a portable or normal install.

You can use the same single license on both desktop install and portable install.

Personally, I think they are immensely useful. It is a very quick way to scan a list of links to locate via the "Logo" Icon for that site (which most sites have these days).

I have many sites I go to on a regular basis known to me through the icon displayed in the address bar. I really hope to see it implemented in one of your updates.

A massive list of globes is not very useful. When every site icon looks alike there is no real reason for an icon at all. No distinction of icons makes it so the one icon you use has no great purpose.

Thanks for giving this serious consideration.

Scott Youngman @ Chris Dino and Mappi75

You asked how LS and Linkman compare. I made a careful feature-by-feature comparison in July 2013 when I needed a bookmark manager to more easily work with multiple browsers. (I now use Chrome exclusively, but still use LS for bookmarks because it is so much easier than any browser's bookmark function.)

I started with Linkman because it offers a free edition. I was just about to pay for the additional features of Linkman Pro when I realized how awkward and even confusing several aspects of its interface and workflow were. That's when I tried LS.

In short, LS was far more intuitive and easy to use, and had more truly useful features than Linkman. I uninstalled Linkman without a regret. If given the choice today between free Linkman and paid LS, I would pay the full retail price for LS without hesitation. It is one of the most well-designed, smoothly-operating programs I have ever used. I would not want to use the Internet without it.

You can set up a hotkey to add a bookmark directly from a browser; Options > Hotkey. I assume that works in FF. It does not work in Chrome, but there is a toolbar add-on available instead. John can probably give you a better answer, but you can try that for now.
Sep 9 2014 at 9:49am Copy Link
John Williams Chris Dino, LinkStash was designed so that it didn't rely on browser add-ons. You can bookmark the current browser tab from anywhere. So that means you do the same thing to bookmark a page from any browser.

The exception is Chrome. It must use the Chrome extension (download linked from our download page) to add a bookmark. This extension adds a button to Chrome to: Bookmark the active tab, Bookmark all tabs or Open LS.

You can use a global hotkey to add a bookmark. Or you can use a browser add-on to add a toolbar button. You can press the hotkey from anywhere, even if you are in notepad. LS adds the bookmark of the most recently used browser tab. Or you can use the tray icon menu, or the LS main program.

Toolbar buttons are available for IE, FireFox, Opera and Chrome, and any browser that lets you call external programs.

By default it keeps the 3 most recent backups, which it makes periodically, but you can change this number to more or less, or turn it off.

_*_ Frustrating to go through the entire PayPal payment process, submit the order only to receive this message...

"PayPal order processing is not available. Please select another payment method."

First off PayPal customers should not be forced to type in personal information, as this is one of the main points of having PayPal. Then to go through the entire process only to be told it is not available is ridiculous.

There should be a PayPal payment if it offers the choice.

John Williams _*_, sorry that PayPal gateway seems to be having problems, unfortunately this is out of my control, I know it has been working at some point because I have seen the orders. Please feel free to contact me via support.

Cary Adams "I personally don't find much use for them other than for looking pretty I am aware than some want this so it will be considered at point point"

Well... that maybe OK for you, but I use the favicon like I would for any application or file. It's the place my eye lands on first, and it clearly shows me which bookmark to click on. In fact, many time I don't even have bookmark names (i leave these blank, or with a single space".

When I'm traveling and looking for a place to get a quick bite, it's the "golden arches" I see first.... I don't go to each restaurant's drive-through searching their menus for a "Big Mac".

The lack of fave icon support is a deal-breaker for me.

I tired installing again with the same results. I don't know what you mean about terminating Ismon.exe. Are you saying I should delete the file? Looking at the folder where the app is installed I see this:
1 file (Linkstash.exe) has, oddly, a modified date of 9/3/2014.
3 other files have a modified date of 9/9/2014.
Ismon.exe and lnkstash.chm have modified dates of 3/19/2013.
lss.dat and stock.dat have modified dates of 4/26/2010.

So I am guessing that everything is not updating. As to having something particular on my system that prevents if from being overwritten, I have no idea what that might be.

John Williams Kelly Hamblin, dates look good, except lsmon, which didn't update, some reason it can't be overwritten on your system. Go into LS options, Startup tab, and uncheck "Start LinkStash when a web browser starts". Exit LS and run the installer. Then you can turn that option back on if you need it. Let me know if that works.

Mustang Buy link appears to be down.

John Williams Mustang, the Buy link seems to be working OK when I just tested it. Are you referring to the Get This Deal button?

Kelly Hamblin, glad it's all updated now.

Mustang John Williams Correct, the "Get this Deal" link takes me to an esellerate store address but I keep getting an "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" error. Same result regardless of browser, and this is not a firewall issue.

John Williams Mustang, I tried again and it loads the esellerate page completely. Please feel free to contact me on our support page if this continues and I'll honour the discount.

Gerald Montgomery Tried twice to purchase from esellerate store but something is not working. Webpage refreshes, information is still there with credit card info hidden, and without the discount code with full price next to confirm button.

conceptualclarity Mr. Williams, could you list all the browsers supported by LinkStash?
Sep 9 2014 at 11:53pm Copy Link
John Williams Gerald, please feel free to contact me via our support page so I can get this fixed for you.
XRayz Software - Sep 10 2014 at 6:29am Copy Link
John Williams conceptualclarity, the browsers that can be set up in LinkStash are: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Pale Moon (Firefox derived), Safari, Maxthon2, Maxthon3, these obsolete browsers can also be set up: Mozilla, Netscape 7 + 8 and NetCaptor. Not all browsers have the same level of support though. Hope that helps.
