  • Is this app actually hosted anywhere, or do we have to host it individually? – Eric B. Mar 21 '15 at 17:05
  • I keep a copy of it up on antonpantev.com/projects/stackfavorites – Anton Mar 22 '15 at 14:44
  • Something like this is desperately needed. Thank you. I will keep playing with the app, but one feature that would make this an indispensable tool is if I could organize multiple stack accounts at once. For example, I have favorites with the mysql tag across at least 3 or 4 accounts - If I could organize them in one page it would drastically improve workflow when referencing my stack favorites. – BryanK Apr 4 '15 at 19:46
  • Hi @Anton, so happy this is still up after all these years. It's still a better way to browse favorites -- even though SO now supports tag searching within your fav's now -- since you have that tab where you can browse by tag. Curious how you sort those tags? Would be nice to sort by number of posts saved. I don't do a lot of web programming - how hard would it be to alter that sort order? Thanks again for building and maintaining this! – ScottEdwards2000 Sep 30 '15 at 17:21
  • Can you add a feature to search ALL SO sites? – Josiah Yoder Jul 10 at 20:52

Seems to work quite well. I do have a couple of suggestions:

  1. On the "organized into Tags" page, it is necessary to click on the tiny "+" sign to drop down the questions for the particular tag. Perhaps it could be extended to the entire row?
  2. Also, when a search term is not found, there is no visual feedback saying "search term was not found" or something similar to indicate that the search did indeed complete but returned nothing.
  • Thanks for the feedback, I updated the site with your suggestions. :) – Anton Jun 6 '11 at 21:41
  • @Anton: Thanks! Looks great! – Nathan Osman Jun 6 '11 at 21:46

This is so freakin' AWESOME - thanks for building this! As far as I know this is the ONLY way to search your favorites now. A couple quick questions/suggestions:

  1. Any idea why it doesn't work in Firefox (I'm on v14). (works great in Chrome)

  2. Would you consider adding tag search like in the S.O. search engine (surrounded by brackets like [python])? The tag browse feature you have is cool but sometimes I want to search for a combination of tags and terms. Actually, if you REALLY wanted to maximize utility, since I don't always remember what tags are on my favorites, how about doing this: when you currently list the pages under the tag after I click on it, list the other tags that are also included ON JUST THOSE PAGES. Then I could browse easily for any combination of tags I desire - just like using "related tags" on S.O. (I realize that would be hard to build though because you would have to nest it to an arbitrary length, so I would just love to have tags in search and maybe just a tag cloud or list of all the tags in my favorites so I don't have to guess at names).

But anyway, these are just wish lists. I'm really really happy to just have a way to SEARCH! thanks again!
