Full Sort needs to be user friendly and simple. Everything is designed to be intuitive with the hope that this help section remains unused. Send your questions anytime! Please use the simple feedback box in the bottom right corner of your screen. Take a few minutes to watch our short tutorial video.
Create first bucket
- Click the + sign next to “My Buckets” and name your first bucket. We recommend entering a description and choosing an icon. What are buckets? They are categories. Create as many buckets as you wish.
- Next, click on a bucket where you want to enter your first Internet destinations (links). Internet destinations are also called Internet addresses, URLs or bookmarks.
- Click the link button in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Add your first link and the link’s title. Then choose a bucket and add a note (description) if you so desire (recommended). Add as many Internet destinations that you want in any buckets you want.
- Add a few tags (keywords) so that your future self or your bucket subscribers may search for your favorite Internet destinations. Tags are not yet available.
Change bucket position
You may choose the order of your buckets. Click a bucket with your mouse or finger (mobile device / tablet) and move the bucket to its’ new position. The exception to this technique is with “nested buckets” which is explained in next paragraph.
Bucket within a bucket
You may create a bucket within a bucket (nested bucket). For instance, if your “meals” bucket is full with recipes, you might want to further categorize your bucket. Just create the buckets you need by pressing the sign next to My Buckets. Then perhaps create three new buckets with the titles “Breakfast” “lunch” and “dinner”.
- Click the gear icon in the top right hand corner of your screen.
- Choose the Reorder Buckets option. Then click Reorder tab.
- Now click and hold the bucket you want to move and drag it up to the main bucket you intend to drop the bucket you are holding into.
- Be sure to be directly under the main bucket and move to the right a little bit and you will see that the secondary bucket is now under the main bucket.
- Let go of your mouse button.
- Scroll down a bit and press the save button. Congrats!
Change link order within bucket
You may choose where Internet destinations appear in your bucket by clicking a link with your mouse or finger (mobile device / tablet) and move the link to its’ new position. Nested buckets are moved differently.
Go to any bucket. Look to the upper right-hand corner of your screen below your profile picture. Click the 3 dots icon and choose 3 or 4 columns.
Click the 3 dot button and then click the favorite star button if you want to add to your main “favorites” page. We recommend adding Internet destinations that are used in your daily life. These are your most often used Internet resources. Choose wisely to keep your life simple!
Search your database
Take a look at the search box on the top left side of your screen. You may want to search your bookmarks especially when researching long forgotten destinations. I hope you took my advice and added lots of tags because your results will be even better!

Take your time when naming buckets. We recommend using only 2 words so that your bucket column looks clean (although this is not a requirement). Longer words or long phrases will wrap to the second line and look ugly. To see what we mean, try creating a really long bucket name. Then go ahead and delete your test bucket when you are done. Now try a shorter name. Always remember that you are an editor. You are a curator. You dislike junk. Learn more in our effective bucket tutorial and what criteria we seek to approve buckets to be included in Full Sort’s gallery.
Clean link titles
Each bucket contains your cherished Internet destinations also known as links or bookmarks. We recommend keeping these titles short and easy to understand. If you do not create your own title, our system will automatically gather from the Internet destination you are entering into Full Sort. For instance, if you did not create your own title and one was given to you that said something like “Top 100 Coffee Shops in Milan Italy GUARANTEED” you might want to change the title to something like “Top Coffee Shops in Milan Italy”.
You may notice the Internet is full of people trying to gain attention with spammy titles. Assuming the destination is worthy of your bucket, you may want to clean up the title to protect your bucket’s integrity. You want a shiny and colorful bucket instead of a leaky and rusty bucket. Unless you are creating a private bucket, you are a curator that people depend on for quality. In like manner, do you want your buckets to be simply charming or in confusing disarray?
