plugin Convert a bookmark file into a hierarchic link list

Last updated on

Tagged with bookmark


With this plugin you can convert a bookmark file into a hierarchic link list. Thus you can create link lists based on your bookmark files without having to convert them first. The syntax is:

<BOOKMARKFILE file="..." [separators="hide"] [folder="..."]>

This will be replaced by a unnumbered hierarchic HTML list. The plugin detects the bookmark file type and converts the contained bookmarks.

The plugin supports Firefox bookmark files in JSON format and HTML bookmarks files in the Netscape format. The later files start with a first line like this:

<!DOCTYPE NETSCAPE-Bookmark-file-1>

Browsers generating this kind of HTML bookmark files are e.g. Firefox and Opera.

The syntax options have the following meaning:

Option Usage
file The name of the bookmark file to display. The path is interpreted as a location in the media directory.
separators Firefox bookmark files in JSON format can include separators. This will per default be displayed as a dotted line. The displaying of separators can be suppressed by setting separators=“hide”.
folder The folder in the bookmark list under which the list shall start. If omitted all bookmarks and folders will be shown in the list.


The plugin was created by Ekkart Kleinod in 2009.


Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.
