Is there an open task for searching bookmarked posts?

I checked GitLab and couldn't find anything.

I have a similar issue with Reddit and it's super frustrating, especially as your history grows. Would be great to implement this natively in Tildes.

    Looks like there isn't an issue for it but because bookmarked posts aren't paginated yet, you can also just use your browser's search functionality, since everything is available at once you can effectively search everything.

    I've now made an issue for it though, #696.

      That's true, although it's a little noisy. It would ideally be possible to filter on search. In addition, the search in it's current form is limited. Let's say for example I remember some aspect of the conversation, not the title or tag but a comment I or another user made. In this case, it wouldn't be possible to return that bookmark. For those reasons, I think even with the lack of pagination, this would be great to implement.

        If it's not sensitive, could you give a specific example of how you'd like to be able to narrow it down like that?

            Oh, it doesn't need to be anything formal like that. I just wanted to make sure I was understanding what you actually wanted to do. Like, you're hoping to find a topic by searching for a word or phrase that you know was in a comment in that topic? A username that commented in that topic? Combined with previous filtering based on title/tag/etc.? Something different?

              Just saving old posts on reddit ran me into this issue as well. Eventually you've got so much bookmarked that finding anything that wasn't added recently is a pain in the ass.

              Another idea that might help is buckets for the saved stuff, rather than putting it all in one giant list. Not dissimilar to how you can create tags for your emails in gmail and file messages away under this or that tag.

              It doesn't seem like enough people would bookmark enough stuff to make this sort of thing useful or necessary, but really it's a function of time. After you've been on a site for a number of years you'll end up with quite a collection of links.

                Totally agree. Accruing interesting content over time without search seems to - in part - defeat the purpose. As Tildes isn’t currently paginated though, it’s already an improvement of Reddit.

              That's about the crux of it yeah. Let me know how you see it.
