Netvouz Duplicate Bookmarks Tool

Today Netvouz got another great tool to help your organize and maintain your bookmarks - the Duplicate Bookmarks Manager.

Log in and select Edit -> Duplicate bookmarks and you will see a list of all your duplicate bookmarks grouped by URL. Using the well-known editing features on Netvouz you can then edit the bookmarks, for example delete all but one in each duplicates group so you only have one copy of each left.

If you have very many duplicates that you want to get rid of the easiest way is to select Show -> 100 per page and then scroll to the bottom of the duplicates page and check the checkboxes for the bookmarks to delete, working your way up to the top of the page. Then when you reach the top hit the Delete button in the blue admin bar.

Soon I will also improve the submit/post bookmark dialog to deal with duplicates as well and then you will get notified if you already have the bookmark you are adding. But nevertheless the duplicates tool is important to clean up imported bookmarks, which very very often contain duplicates.

In addition to this new feature (which was prioritized because of user request) I have also added a bunch of other small fixes and improvements, most of which you actually never see. But nevertheless they're important.

Happy bookmarking!

Improper use of Netvouz

Sorry "harrybob" but 22499 bookmarks all pointing to identical web sites with thousands of Google Ads is simply not the way to use Netvouz. You have been kicked. And you're in good company with some other people who obviously don't understand how to use Netvouz. So please read the Terms Of Use again and then go elsewhere.


P.S. I'm grateful, though, that you helped me stress test the Netvouz import feature. It rocked! :-)
