Improvements in today's update

  • If the bookmark selection contained both Catalog and Dashboard bookmarks on the My Bookmarks page then no "Move" menus were available to select. The "Move" menus appeared only when you had a selection of only Catalog bookmarks or only Dashboard bookmarks. Now you can select "Move to another Category" or "Move to catalog" when you have both Catalog and Dashboard bookmarks selected.
  • If you had multiple selected bookmarks on the My Bookmarks page and clicked on "Move to Catalog" then the bookmarks were immediately moved to the Catalog. From now a confirmation message box comes up to avoid accidental moves.

New feature: Custom title and subtitle on the shared tabs

From now you can set a custom title for a shared tab (other than the tab title you have on your Dashboard) and optionally you can also add a subtitle.


To add a custom title or/and subtitle for a shared tab follow the steps below:

(1) On the Dashboard click on "Tabs" under the tabs bar then select "Share Tab" (or "Sharing settings" if the tab has already been shared).

(2) Check the checkboxes next to "Custom title" and "Subtitle" to enable them, then enter a custom title and a subtitle in the text fields. The subtitle can have multiple lines, too.

(3) Click on "Share Tab" (or "Save settings" if you edit an already shared tab's settings).


If "Custom title" is turned off then the title of the shared Tab will be the same as the Tab's name on your Dashboard.

In mobile browsers
Tap on "Turn ON Tab and Category Editor" at the bottom of the Dashboard page then tap on "Share Tab" (or "Sharing settings" if the tab has already been shared) to access the Tab sharing settings.

New Tab share link format

From now the automatically generated tab share link will include a harder to guess id. The id won't be just a multiple digit number, rather it will be the combination of random letters and digits like "gpWKX3zE".

Instead of the old format https://www.bookmarkninja.com/share/245687, links like https://www.bookmarkninja.com/share/gpWKX3zE will be used.

Tabs that you have shared previously will be still accessible with the old share links. However if you stop sharing a previously shared tab and you decide to share it again, it will get a share link in the new format.

If you want to migrate your current shared tabs' share links to the new format then simply stop sharing the tabs and share them again. If you migrate any of your shared tabs' share links to the new format, make sure to update the share links where you use them, where you posted them.

You can learn more about tab sharing in the Sharing Tabs blog post.
