Group sites in folder in sidebar

Can you create a feature in which we can group multiple sites into one folder .

For example:
My Sites 1
– site 1
– site 2
– site 3

My Site 2
– site 1
– site 2
– site 3

Not that I know how to do it, but I wonder if this can be accomplished though an add-on?

I’ve got a growing list of sites and I’d love to be able to separate them by group such as Work, Plugin test sites, and Personal projects.

+1 from me on this!

I upvote this. It would be very useful as I have a lot of websites that sit under one company.

Agree - Grouping sites nice. Personal, Clients, Side Projects,

Perhaps also sub folders too.

Clients > Client A > site1, site2

Etc.

Thanks!

I was just coming to leave this exact feature request. So +1 from me.

It would be nice to be able to organize sites into folders by client (or by any criteria).

With 41 sites in my sidebar (and growing) - this would be a very welcome feature for sorting things and being able to group them would make finding things quicker.

+1 on this.

How is this the top upvoted feature request from 2 years ago and still hasn’t been released? It’s not even that challenging of a task… Really starting to lose faith in this product.

Would love to see this as well, +1!

I did not see that this feature has been request. Just add a search feature along with grouping.

I’m really surprised such a simple but so useful feature hasn’t been implemented in 3 years.

I realize this is an old thread, but I wanted to clean up old topics and see how things are going.

With the release of the 5.9.0 version of Local, the sidebar now is able to star sites as well as order the sites by most recently started.

This should allow you to quickly star and organize the sites that are actively being worked. Can you give the latest version of Local a try and let us know what you think?

I’m here to vote for this!!!

The reason for this is usually when I screen-share, that way I can e.g. collapse “Work” and not expose secret projects we’re working on.

  • Also I think sites don’t HAVE to be in a folder, they can be in the root or in a folder
  • Having them in a folder is just a visual thing, selecting a folder would be impossible, it would just collapse and expand the folder
  • Last selected site (even one selected in a collapsed folder) would still show

I also am considering maybe trying to do this with an addon, but I think it’s worth being in the core app.

I came here to post this and found your thread! This feature is a must. Please add it. I have lots of sites and staring them won’t help a lot. We need to have the ability to group them into folders for easy navigation. Now, I need to scroll down through many sites to find the one i want to open. Hope this added in the near future. Thanks!
