Administrative tasks fixed

Because of the problems with the administrative tasks that began with the last update to Netvouz, I've decided to back out to the earlier version (2005-11-11). However, I have retrofitted some of the fixes and enhancements that was made in the latest version.

So what does this mean? Well, it means that the feature to display who else has a bookmark is currently disabled, but on the other hand the administrative tasks work well.

I will fix this once and for all and will update to a version with fully working administrative tasks as well as the social capabilities.

Stay tuned ;-)

Sorry for the inconvenience...

Administrative tasks are slow (and may fail)

After the last upgrade we are having some problems with the performance of the administrative tasks (e.g. moving bookmarks, deleting categories etc.). If it takes long, wait another minute. If it fails (and you get a yellow error message box), try again but with a smaller set of bookmarks or categories.

We are working on fixing this problem.

Netvouz goes more social! (New release 2005-11-21)

In this release I've added just one single feature, but it's a major feature - the ability to see who else has also bookmarked a link. This makes Netvouz much more social (and fun to use!) than it has been in the past. And we won't stop there... The social features will soon be enhanced further.

Adding this social feature revealed one thing to me that I hadn't really been thinking of before - how many duplicate bookmarks people really have. So I wrote "Develop a duplicate bookmarks wizard" on my to do list :-)

Oh, yes, I've also fixed some (but not all....) problems in the import bookmarks routine. Importing bookmarks is certainly not a trivial task... And I understand why not all the other bookmarking sites have it ;-)

New release 2005-11-11

  • Added a Copy bookmark feature. When logged in you see a copy link next to all bookmarks that are not your own. If you click it you can quickly copy another member's bookmark.

New release 2005-11-08

Again a small update with the following enhancements:

  • JavaScript and HTML feeds ("linkrolls") used to include your bookmarks on your blog (or homepage) are now documented. Click the "Tools" link on your bookmarks page to get instructions on how to use them.

  • If you have a blog you may also appreciate the new Add2Netvouz button you can put on your blog to allow your visitors to easily bookmark your posts. This is an early version of the link, it will be enhanced soon. It's on the Tools page as well.

  • When importing bookmarks (using the Import feature on your bookmarks page) you can now skip all bookmarks that you already have. This is useful if you want to import bookmarks from several computers and don't fancy having duplicates.

  • New tabbed dialogs when submitting bookmarks. This layout is both space-saving and looks pretty good, if I may say (but who do you think designed it...). It has been tested in Internet Explorer v6, Firefox 1.07 and Opera 8 and if it works well it will be used on all Netvouz dialogs (it's also used on the Tools page now).

  • ...plus the usual bunch of bug fixes and hidden improvements you never really get to see...
