My Yahoo migration lost my book marks FIXED.

I migrated to the new My.Yahoo.Com portal, only to find that my BOOKMARKS were gone.

Panic!!!! You bet.

Some of these urls I only access once a month, and have lovely secure addresses with cryptic sounding URLs. These are critical bookmarks as they point to my administrative pages for dozens of blogs, wikis, and URLs that I access for business.

I checked the My Yahoo tech support and community and found a widespread mutiny about the bookmark issue. Lots of people had bookmarks well organized (like me) alphabetically, and were doing serious administrative work using that funny little app. This was no fun, but after a few minutes I found that fix myself. (And no, this fix, is not easily documented on Yahoo, so I hope you find this article useful.)

Anyway, after migration you will find a bunch of generic Yahoo bookmarks. These default bookmarks are "Quicklinks" and are NOT what you expect and need. Obviously, nobody cares because these are just generic catagories on Yahoo. They are not "My" links in the slightest:

This is the point that I panicked, and so will you; if you have a lot of carefully organized bookmarks. Calm down, and hit the dropdown next to the greyed out QuickLinks and then select "Uncatagorized".

Here you should find all your familiar bookmarks.

I hope this helps a little with the migration.

Once you find your uncategorized bookmarks you can move them into "Quicklinks" so they show up all the time first thing.

If this was useful, I have ANOTHER great self-help on curing back pain. We all get hurt and my "Top 10 Cures for Sciatica and Back Pain" is a best selling book in sports medicine. It is a quick read and gives real back pain relief fast. Everybody hurts their back eventually, and this book really helps.
