How to Copy Del.icio.us Bookmarks to Furl

By Posted 2005 Updated   Tips

How to Copy Del.icio.us Bookmarks to Furl. Furl.net is a free service that saves the important items you find on the Web as bookmarks and enables you to quickly find them again. Furl archives a personal copy of every page you save. When you want to recall it, you can find it instantly by searching the full text your archived items. Each member has a personal archive of 5 gigabytes (GB), large enough to store tens of thousands of searchable items.

I opened an account in Furl recently to try its features and it was a difficult task to import all my bookmarks from del.icio.us to Furl.

Firstly…

  • To export your items from delicious go to http://del.icio.us/api/posts/all
  • Enter your username and password. Save the resulting all.xml (XML file) to your computer. That is the file you should use in Furl upload form.

Going to Furl…
Furl has a facility to import your bookmarks, if you have a file with bookmarks available.
Go to My Tools > Import page in Furl.

delicious-furl

  • Just browse to locate your file all.xml file and attach it.
  • Check import from del.icio.us
  • And Click ‘import it’

Patiently wait for the next page to upload all your bookmarks. And all your del.icio.us bookmarks are now copied to Furl. Enjoy.

    So how does Furl compare to del.icio.us?

    Hello,

    thanks for the tutorial. The correct api url now is

    https://api.del.icio.us/posts/all

    Hi, no matter which of the api urls I try, it says: “HTTP 403 (forbidden): You are not authorized to view this page.” Any suggestions? Thanks.

    BTW, I can’t import from my laptop to my furl either, since every time it gives me an error code, so my only hope is to copy from del.icio.us.
