Locating a bookmark
Search in the Personal Bookmarks window instantly displays bookmark entries that match the search string. Selecting a collection in the left pane limits the search to that collection.

Once I've found a bookmark, I'd like to see where it's located in the collection hierarchy. The Bookmark Info panel shows everything except that.

What can I do?

You can't do anything at the moment unfortunately. Certainly a request for the future though!

Work-around: open OmniWeb's bookmarks file as an HTML page
I started a research project several weeks ago, bookmarking a handful of useful pages, which I carefully saved (i.e., hid) in a bookmarks sub-folder.

Now that I have time to continue my research, I could not easily locate these hidden bookmarks in my vast Personal Bookmarks list. With a little digging, I found them:[LIST=1][*]Open the Personal Bookmarks window.[*]Use the search box at the bottom of the list to find one of the "lost" bookmarks.[*]In Finder, open OmniWeb's folder of bookmark files (and other stuff): ~/Library/Application Support/OmniWeb 5/[*]Double-click the Bookmarks.html or Favorites.html file to open it in OmniWeb.[*]Search the flat list of bookmarks for a key word or phrase.[*]When a desired bookmark is located, scan the preceding lines for bookmark folder names (larger bold unlinked lines).[*]Return to the Personal Bookmarks window and locate the desired folder.[*]Optional: add the BookMarks.html & Favorites.html files to the Favorites bar for easier access the next time.[/LIST]-- Ward

But, initially the bookmarks are not accepted, may be because the membership is new, am I right?

I think so. Otherwise, bookmarking should be easy.
