CBX Bookmark & Favorite


This plugin is inspired from youtube’s bookmark or favorite feature. User can create their own bookmark category public or private and save articles inside different folders/list/category. Later we extended the plugin so that category can be global created by admin or single click bookmark without any category as pro features. There are lots of practical use for this simple but useful(we like to call it ‘powerful’) plugin. This plugin can help you create a bookmark site or user generated list site.

The bookmark should reference the user IP address not force user to login as users will not use the bookmark feature.

For several weeks I searched for a good bookmark plugin. And now I have finally found one! Easy to use and does what it needs to do. Also great support. Within 8 hours I already had a suitable answer from them to my question. Thank you CBX

I had a problem, and the developer fixed it promptly and it wasn't even the CBX fault. It was other plugin. Thank you!
