I would like to group my bookmarks like buffers with ibuffer or newsgroups with gnus by certain criterias like projects for example. I also tried Bookmark+ but couldn't get anything like this working. Does anyone know a way to achive this?

Bookmark+ provides several different ways of grouping, organizing, and even combining bookmarks. ("Grouping" can mean several different things.)

Take a look at these possibilities:

What problems did you run into trying to use it to group bookmarks? What did you try, for instance?

In my first pass with bookmarks, I used multiple bookmark files. But to keep it simpler (too much "out of sight, out of mind"), I'm going to try to lean towards the tags approach this time. I do wish Emacs' grouping of bookmarks was a bit more visually transparent, as the OP is looking for. –  Brady Trainor Jul 2 at 23:39

You mention multiple bookmark files. That is one way. I mentioned multiple bookmark lists, which is not the same thing. Both are possible and provide different benefits. I also mentioned Bookmark+ tags, which provide yet another way to group bookmarks. All of these ways can be combined. –  Drew Jul 3 at 2:20
    
Ah, good point (altogether your post). Thank you for clarifying, so with tags and lists, we could possibly have intersecting groups... I will have to try the lists soon. Bookmarking the list -as you point out- would make it more GUI like. The bookmark+ documentation is a dense read! –  Brady Trainor Jul 3 at 2:27

@BradyTrainor 1. By bookmark lists I mean bookmark display lists, i.e., different states of buffer *Bookmark List*. You can make a bookmark of each such state. Such a stated records a given set of bookmarks, but also their markings, omissions, etc. 2. Tags alone give you easy set intersections. And you can in effect save different tag combinations using bookmark-list bookmarks. –  Drew Jul 3 at 2:32
    
OK, should be fixed now (took me a moment to understand what links and what numbers you were talking about). –  Drew Jul 3 at 2:47
