Fixed bug: After typing space in tag input field autocomplete panel closed

When you start typing a tag in the tag input field the autocomplete panel pops up if the typed text matches any of the already used tags.

If you typed a space (because the tag contained a space) the autocomplete panel closed. This was a bug that has been fixed in the latest update. Now after the space you can continue typing the rest of the tag and the autocomplete panel will show the suggestions as expected.

Improvement: Automatic refresh of the Dashboard and My Bookmarks pages

Let's suppose you regularly use Bookmark Ninja on 2 or more devices (notebook, desktop computer, smart phone, tablet). It may happen that you leave your Dashboard or My Bookmarks page open on device A while you make changes on device B (add, delete, rearrange bookmarks/categories etc.). When you return to device A (when the browser window gets the focus), Ninja will automatically reload the page if it detects that any changes have been made. This way all the changes made on device B will be immediately visible on device A without having to reload the page manually.

Renaming tags

Until now renaming a tag was possible with the trick of adding the new tag and removing the old tag on the selected bookmarks. But it was pretty tedious and it was not a "real" rename although it delivered the same result.

From now you can do a "real" tag rename in a very simple way with much less steps:

In desktop browsers:
  1. On the My Bookmarks page right mouse click on a tag in the Available tags list on the right side of the page.
  2. Select "Rename tag" in the context menu.
  3. On the "Rename tag" dialog box enter the new tag name and click on "Rename".


In mobile browsers:
  1. On the My Bookmarks page tap and hold on a tag in the Available tags list.
  2. Select "Rename tag" in the context menu.
  3. On the "Rename tag" page enter the new tag name and tap on "Rename".


Please note that when you rename a tag, all the instances of the selected tag will be renamed in your account, regardless of what bookmarks are currently listed on the My Bookmarks page.

Improvement: "Show more tags" on the My Bookmarks page

On the My Bookmarks page until now all the used tags were listed by default under "Available tags" when the page loaded. This could have been inconvenient if the user had many tags (several thousands), which had impact on the page load time. From now only the first 50 tags are displayed at page load. If there are more than 50 tags you can click on "Show more tags..." under the list to display all the tags.


When you use the Tag Quick Finder (the input text field above the "Available tags" list) and start typing characters the result list will not be limited, all the tags that meet the criteria will be displayed immediately.

The improvement is available in the mobile view, too, in the mobile browsers.

Performance improvement on the My Bookmarks page

Today we rolled out the second biggest update this year. With this we accomplished a general performance improvement in Bookmark Ninja we planned for this year. July's update was about the Dashboard performance improvement, this update is about improving the My Bookmarks page performance.

Similar to the Dashboard the My Bookmarks's code has been re-architected, too and we achieved significant performance improvement (now 40K bookmarks load 3.5 times faster on the My Bookmarks page). Especially users who have a large number of bookmarks (over 10K) will feel this improvement.
