Direct Import from Delicious

go to http://buy.xmarks.com/delicious.php
Following our previous post about migrating from Delicious to Xmarks, we have officially released a direct importer for your Delicious bookmarks.

If you're ready to export from Delicious, go to http://buy.xmarks.com/delicious.php, where you may be prompted to login to Xmarks if you're not already:

After logging in to your Xmarks account, you'll be prompted to select the type of Delicious account you use, either the newer login via your Yahoo! account, or the older login with your del.icio.us:

After signing in, you will see a table with the Delicious bookmarks that are available for import:

Once you have selected and double-checked your bookmarks for import, you can click "Import Selected Items" to initiate import, after which you'll receive an "import successful" message.

You will automatically be redirected to my.xmarks.com where you can see a new folder for your imported Delicious sites:

If you select "Details" for a specific bookmark, you'll be able to pull up the edit box and view the Delicious tags for that site:

If you run into any sync errors please email us at support@xmarks.com with details; there are some limitations with Yahoo's API that could cause problems for a few users.

Help spread the word to those who would consider Xmarks as an alternative choice!
