BlackBerry browser bookmark that opens all of my desktop bookmarks
Based on some hints I got from another thread (http://forums.crackberry.com/f2/view...ckberry-23980/), I figured out a way to (sort of) import Bookmarks from the desktop. Here is what I did:
In FireFox, I selected Bookmarks > Organize Bookmarks > Import and Backup > Export HTML. I named my file "Bobs_Bookmarks.html." Then I used mass storage mode to copy it to my BB SD card. I put it in my "BlackBerry/documents/" directory. Your file and directory names could differ.
Now I can use it in the BlackBerry by selecting: Media > Menu > Explore > Media Card > BlackBerry > documents > Bobs_Bookmarks.html. When the file opens, I can scroll to the bookmark I want to open and select: Menu > Get Link. The site will then open in the BB browser.
But this is not good enough for me. I want access to my Bookmarks while in the browser. I don't want to have to go through the extra steps of navigating the Media application first. So I went further.
With the file copied to my SD card, on the BlackBerry I selected: Browser > Go To ... and typed "file:///SDCard/BlackBerry/documents/Bobs_Bookmarks.html" (without the quotes). Once the file opened, I selected: Menu > Add Bookmark and named it "Bob's Desktop Bookmarks."
Now I have a Bookmark in my BlackBerry browser that will open all of my desktop bookmarks. And as my desktop bookmarks change, I can easily export them again and update the html file on my SD card.
- If you have any spaces in your directory or file names, you'll need to replace them with "%20" (no quotes) when you type the path into the BB Browser.
- I have a BB Curve 8310 on BIS running OS 4.5.
