CBX Bookmark


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.

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

I am using the CBXBookmark plugin and I am absolutely satisfied with it. The plugin is well coded and documented and very useful. The developers do a great job! When you have trouble with the plugin or you need some customization the developers help you very quickly and detailed. They are very interested in the satisfication of their customers. I can warmly recommend the Codeboxr team and their CBX Bookmark plugin.

The plugin is great and features options none of the other plugins were able to offer. Support also was great, as I got a response to my email, about a bug on my webpage that needed to be fixed, in a really short period of time.

This is a great addon quite unique in its own way and works great. Shortcodes are quite useful as well with plenty of parameters. Developer was very helpful, he helped me overcome some difficulties I had and also implemented a change I propose. Well done!
