The old unread button is back now, but clicking it does nothing but make both the 'Go to newest post' and 'Mark unread' button disappear. Refreshing the page shows the thread as if you hadn't even touched it before, i.e. both buttons are still present. Has this been addressed already?

If my mouse gestures absolutely do not work at all, and I mean the blue thing doesn't even pop up, what did I do wrong? I formatted my laptop today and installed firefox, adblock plus, and SALR in that order and it still doesn't work. It didn't work from before but I assumed that was the competing versions or something. Why doesn't the one from the first post in this thread work?

SALR can not mark threads unread (this is handled by the forum itself, not SALR). You can turn off the "Mark unread" icon in the Forum pane of the SALR configuration pane.

Edit:

To reiterate what duz posted earlier:

Your profile must be messed up or you're not running the latest versions, the code for the unread button has been removed.

The mouse gestures default to off. You have to go into the options and enable them. If they still don't work, let us know.

When I started this it seems like a useful feature, but now I'm not so sure, but anyway.

SALR User stalker feature.

Allows you to temporary track a persons posts.



Click the "U" under a persons avatar and have all their posts highlighted in this garish blue colour (I set the default to an even worse green, but the colour can be changed through the preferences).
Clicking that "U" again will switch off the highlighting.
Clicking someone elses "U" while someone else is highlighted switches the highlighting to that user.
Oh and the highlighting persists across pages/threads if left switched on.

I'll post a diff against the my current version on bountysource in a bit in case anyone wants to include this feature.

What I mean is that all threads that are bookmarked are necessarily at least partially read. Some are fully read. What you want and maybe what that feature is is all partially read threads moved to the top with fully read threads unaffected. Right?

(As the feature was described, it sounded like it would move up both partially and fully read threads)

Yes my request was for any thread I had read on any given page to be at the top (whether or not it had unread posts). What others seem to want is something else for that one specific (bookmarked threads)spage.

What I wanted (and apparently erebus delivered (THANKS!) was just something that would bub le threads I had read up to the top. It's really really useful for scanning back a few week since any thread you have looked at will be sorted to the top of that page. Sometimes you forget the title of a thread (or the title has nothing to do with what you want to find in the thread.)

So my question stands for BountySource: How does it work? If I pledge the money for this feature will erebus get it, or what? Or is it a general fundraiser for the whole Bounty SOurce site? Or are the pledges doled out to the team as a whole? If the money does not go straight to the team, is there a paypal donations button somewhere else?

I believe that you'd have to pledge an amount for the feature, and then erebus would have to add his solution and then wait a week for it to "clear" (anyone can look at the solution to see if there are any issues).

It might just be easier to donate directly to him if you want.

Hopefully someone else can clear up how exactly it works.

Cool I just noticed a couple of bugs that I'd like to fix first, oh and once I've figured out what BS is.

Oh and seems that a side effect of sorting the thread list is that this also sorts the bookmarked thread list as well, which should please some people. I'll add an extra option so you can switch them on and off individually.

Sorry I've only just caught your post, I've added this feature as well;


But as you can see there are a couple of points I'd like advice on before I commit this code.
1) Any idea on a good default color? I'm guessing not everyone will like my choice of #00FF00.
2) Should the quote itself get changed to a darker version of that default color?
3) And I can't seem to find a good way to get a user's username out of SALR, so as a fix I grab the name from the "Custom user highlighting" stuff. Any one have a better idea?

If we stick with the "Custom user highlighting" way it will mean two things;
1) A person will have to add themselves with the "Add Coloring/Note" link
2) And then of course will get 3 pages of people complaining that the highlight of people that quote you doesn't work because they haven't done this.

Actually that brings up another bug, if someone doesn't add a comment to a user they've added to the custom colouring, then they don't show up in SALR configure panel. Probably should fix that while I'm here.

Comments? Questions? Insults?

I actually committed this feature last night (including pulling the username from SALR username highlighting) with just about the same implementation as you did (just without having *only* the quoted block highlighted). However, your implementation seems better so feel free to commit over what I did.

Edit: Your post just made me realize my code was slightly broken in that it only checks the first quote in a post to see if you're quoted. I can either fix it or let you deal with it.

Well at the moment, the why I handle it is in handleShowThread, I have this
code:
  var userId = persistObject.userId;
  //Crappy way to get the username, but what else can you do?
  var username = persistObject.getUserName(userId);
  if (username!=null) {
    var userQuote = persistObject.selectSingleNode(doc, post, "tbody//tr/td/blockquote[contains(@class,'qb2')]/h4[./text() = '"+username+" posted:']");       
    if (userQuote!=null) {
      post.className += ' salrHighlightQuote';
    }
  }
I should probably clean that up so it doesn't have to ask for the username for every post, just do it once at the top.

And then this to insert the CSS
code:
  //insert dynamic CSS for highlighting quoted users
  var hqucss = 'table.salrHighlightQuote td { background-color: ';
  var prefname = 'highlightQuotePost';
  //Check to see if we are in FYAD, god help us all.
  var isFYAD = persistObject.inFYAD(persistObject.getForumID(doc));
  if (isFYAD) { prefname += 'FYAD'; }
  hqucss += persistObject.getPreference(prefname);
  hqucss += ' !important; }';
  SALR_insertDynamicCSS(hqucss, doc);
Should be simple enough to get it to colour the quote as well.

I'll check the code when I merge it, no point in over righting good code, oh and again any suggestions on colours whould be appreciated.

Now as for the problem of users without comments/note not appearing in the custom user highlighting thingy, can anyone explain why we currently have
code:
"SELECT `userid`,`username` FROM `userdata` WHERE `color` != 0 OR `background` != 0 OR (notes IS NOT NULL AND notes != '')"
Rather just than
code:
"SELECT `userid`,`username` FROM `userdata`"
There's probably a good reason but at the moment it means people can't tell when they've added people without giving them any colour/note information. Unless someone complains I'll replaced it with my shorter version otherwise I think it will just add to the confusion.

What I meant was that my code only handles the first quote in each post - so if the post has two quotes and your username is mentioned in the second quote block, it won't be highlighted.

The easiest way is to let the user decide what color they want for their quoted backround and just use the same background value as their own posts (rather than adding yet another color picker box to the options.) Either that, or add a "user" of -1 and have the code pull from the color value of said imaginary user.

Hmm for reason I've got a mistrust of magic numbers in things like this, the only numbers we can assume won't be used for userid are 0 and -1, and for some reason a user with userid 0 is already in my custom user highlighting.

Besides I've already added the code to add a new colour picker for this, I thought it fit into the category rather than user highlighting and also it allows to have different colours depending on which forums (FYAD/BYOB/other).

This is unless people would prefer that just the name of the person that quoted you is highlighted rather than the whole post like I have at the moment?

The color pane for categories is a good place for it, and I like having the entire quoted block show up highlighted, but it'd be easy enough to have a checkbox to change between highlighting just your username or the whole quote block.

I've updated the SVN.
Just to note, I've set it so that posts that quote you are coloured by default as this seemed to fit the style of the other colouring options, and I've changed the default colour to two shade of purple, one for the post and dark one for the quoted text (even if it's not your quote). As I mentioned before, people will need to add themselves via "Add Coloring/Note". So possible this actually should default to off, either way I prefer to find a better way to get a username but can't think of a better way at the moment.
I added two options for sort threads in the thread listing and the control panel, these default to off and are under "Forum" in the SALR control panel.
And I've changed the code that gets the Customised User Colours so that it retrieves all users who aren't mods or admins, even if they don't have a colour/note associated. I think this is a reasonable compromise.
Fixed a couple of small bugs in the rest of the code that I found along the way as well.

Changes to the menu won't appear until you restart Firefox, I assume you restarted Firefox? *begins looking for bashing stick*

Having said that I think most applications give you a dialog box telling you that "These changes won't take effect until the application is restarted". Perhaps SALR needs this when changes are made to the SALR menu.
