ASDESIGNED: why on earth would you want to search your bookmarks?



    1. Open http://what.thedailywtf.com/users/<you>/activity/bookmarks
    2. Think to yourself, "wow I have a lot of bookmarks, but I remember whose post I bookmarked..."
      103232897217598216892693821. Try Ctrl+F anyway just to see if it does anything sensible.
      67812632648263862. Observe that it doesn't
    3. Think to yourself "oh, bother, I guess I'll just have to scroll down like some kind of chimpanzee would then, seeing as I _can't even get the entire list into memory at once...."

Decide maybe that bookmarks aren't actually that big of a deal anyway, go do something else instead...
    4. Try to break numbered list formatting in your "bug report" for shits and giggles...
    5. BITCH!COMPLAIN!

    Went to post a feature request on meat.d and found this:

    Tl;dr: add in:bookmarks to the end of your search terms.

    Filed Under: Discourserability


  • sockdevs

    That's Discoverable…

    Oh crap, that Discoterm is spelt the same as the normal word…


  • area_deu

    The help link in the seach popup is apparently adequate enough for the Discodevs.



  • discodiscoverable?


  • mod

    The correct term is Discourserability. I've added it to my post.



  • I love how polite the original questioner was:

    @abarker said:

    >May I search my own bookmarks?

    Yes, of course, you may, be my guest...



  • So, to search my bookmarks from my bookmarks page, the first action I need to take is to navigate away from my bookmarks?
    Filed under: my bookmarks



  • Also, apparently "in:bookmarks <username>" gives you a confirmation you bookmarked that user's post. It just gives you a link to that user's profile page, (which I already knew how to find...)
