Are bookmarks now impossible in 2.11.7?

Hi, I had created browser bookmarks for my 6 Hookpad projects, they no longer work in the new version (2.11.7), and I don’t seem to be able to create new bookmarks for specific projects.

Also, the page that lists my Hookpad projects has disappeared - I know they now show up in a pop-up window - but I prefer the old way. It feels hidden now (and it was already hard to navigate to before).

I was going to ask for a “My Projects” button link in the project menu, but that seems pointless now that the My Projects page doesn’t exist as a page.

I enjoy using the software, thanks.

Hi @MattoR, this is an interesting point. The “my Hookpad Projects” page is gone for good. It used a bunch of legacy code and it was time to move away.

That said, I totally understand what you’re asking for and its 100% reasonable. Kind of like how Google Docs always have a long URL hash right when they open. I’ll think about this for Hookpad and try to come up with something.

One thing you can do immediately, which is a little cumbersome, is to temporarily create a sharable URL through File -> Create Sharable URL. You’ll end up on a URL like this: https://www.hooktheory.com/hookpad/view/jDgXZyqnoKl

If you take that long ID at the end and put it on the hookpad URL like this, it will work.

https://hookpad.hooktheory.com?idOfSong=jDgXZyqnoKl

You can delete the sharable URL once you get this unique ID and the hookpad bookmark will still work.

Thanks for the workaround, Chris, it works. Around. :wink:
