(EDIT: Re-Created and updated Cobalt 8 topic)

This C7 topic is related to my older accepted feature request on previous ME support area.

Since you added a separate bookmark feature in "Cobalt", i am not sure if my new request belongs to bookmarks or favourites. Which one is more extendable? I think, it applies to both?!

Idea:

Create multiple bookmark-categories. You might call them lists or collections of other items. In addition to a single flag, a user can assign the current item to a "category" or "label". Other users can see those collections.

Examples:

IMDB.com - please, see lower right side bar for "Related Lists". To create your own lists, you might create a free account to test the functionality.

Youtube.com

See button "Add to Favourite & Playlist"

Twitter.com

Same function but used for user categorization. See popup next to follow button "Add/Remove to lists..."

Cobalt (alpha3):

Currently, there is only an option to change the bookmark ICON on template parameters. I can´t see any further configuration. I am not sure how "bookmarks" differ technically from "favourites" in cobalt. Maybe it is a little bit redundant anyway?!? Can´t both rely on the same code... For example: Do you know the Drupal module "flag". This can be used and configured multiple times. You can rename it and use a different icon.

What do you think?

this idea is certainly good. But unfortunately too big to bi implemented right now. May be we wait and make it later if it finally fit in concept.

Another technical idea - beyond current bookmarks/favourites:

Create an article (serves as collection), in category MyCollections. Then use a Relate-field with manual selection. The selection could be a step-by-step process. From category-tree down to an item selection. Or by title auto-complete. All selections (URLs) are stored in this field. Displayed in frontend via template or simple UL/LI.

Example workflow like in ArticleRelationPlugin by greatjoomla.com (need to login with "artrel"!)

Example manual RelatedItems field by Yootheme ZOO

Maybe an extra field is more flexible?

Any news on this? or extended feature in Cobalt 8 ?

I got a news about "Nordmograph" and a new "VM Wishlist" extension. Also a good example for user-created lists and collections. Something like this would boost Cobalts use-cases and reputation.

In general, users are interested in who likes what and why. And a directory woth lots of entries, is much easier to read with some collections and advices from other users.

BTW, since there is this new "repost on my homepage" feature. What about assigning user categories? If i could select one of my user-categories or even create a new one if there was none... imdb, dribbble and behance network has similar features.
