Bookmarks - Show Full Folder Hierarchy, Not just Parent Folder

Recommended Posts

This is a relatively minor feature request, but I'd love it if Alfred's Bookmarks search displayed each bookmark's full folder hierarchy. At the moment, it only shows the enclosing/parent folder's name in brackets. While my folder hierarchy for bookmarks is relatively simple compared to other files, there are some areas where I'd find it incredibly helpful to get more information about the location of each bookmark (particularly with research-related bookmarks).

 

To explain what I'm looking for, consider the following example for a bookmark to this forum, which is located in a folder called Alfred.

Within my bookmarks, the Alfred folder is located in another folder called Tech. As a result, I'd love for the subtext above to read: 

 

[Tech/Alfred] https://www.alfredforum.com/forum

 

And, if the concern is that there will be too much text to read if the full folder hierarchy is included in the subtext, then it might be nice to include one or more of the following options (in Preferences→Features→Web Bookmarks):

 

  1. Parent Folder + URL (current): Allow users to stick with the default (one folder with URL) (Example: [Alfred] https://www.alfredforum.com/forum)
  2. Folder Hierarchy - URL: Include the full folder hierarchy without the URL (Example: Alfred/Tech)
  3. Folder Hierarchy + URL: Show everything, even though most of the URL might get cut off (Example: [Alfred/Tech] https://www.alfredforum.com/forum)

 

As always, thanks for your consideration!
