Bookmarks in nautilus only in menu, not in the shortcut tab

On my latest Ubuntu install, using version 12.04, my bookmarks are not there.

I can ctrl+d to add bookmarks, but the bookmarks part of nautilus is missing altogether so they are not showing.

i.e. the sidebar panel doesn't have a bookmarks section.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The bookmarks section will not be shown until you add a bookmark by either pressing Ctrl-D or dragging and dropping in the side bar.

Once you add a bookmark, A section will be created with Bookmarks name and will show your added folders.

So far the best workaround has been to add a different File Manager from the Software Center (pcmanfm).

This doesn't have a bookmarks section but it does allow me to drop items into it as links.
