I went through this thread, and I don't know if I missed it or not. I also went on the feature request website to look for this but I didn't see a way to change the way the forums look.

I know that there are three modes: normal, fyad, and byob, but a way to get your own colours? When surfing this website, my eyes often get pretty tired looking at the bright whitish background. It would be great if users could completely customize their browsing experience on the forums.

Anyone?

You can change the colors that show up for the light/dark gray background for forum posts. Click on the "Unseen Post (light)" and "Unseen Posts (dark)" to change the colors.

It seems that way (just tried it). Unread coloring seems to be broken while read coloring seems to work. If I remember I'll take a look at it later to see what's broken.

It seems like the forum is adding "amp;" in the URL it sends Firefox when you try to open the 'Who Posted' list for a thread. Would SALR be capable of fixing this?

First of all, I just want to say that I love this add-on. It is so useful. One feature I feel that would be really useful, if it is even possible code-wise, is to have the ability to jump to the next post by the OP. Anything like that in the works?

You could just click the ? bottom of the post table. Next to the profile stuff etc. It gives all the posts by that person in the thread.

OK, I have a small feature request. Can we have a little bubble that pops up when you mouse-over a smilie with the code for that smilie displayed? Sometimes I have no idea what a particular smilie is supposed to be representing, and it helps to know the code if I want to use it in future without having to scroll through the whole list.

I'd add this to the feature request myself but (thats : effort :, kids)

Someone posted this script for Greasemonkey a while back (may have even been the old SALR thread?) that does exactly this, hope this works for you:
code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name           Smilie Replacer
// @include        [url]http://forums.somethingawful.com/*[/url]
// ==/UserScript==

var images = document.getElementsByTagName("img");

for ( var i = 0; i < images.length ; i++ ) { 
  if ( images[i].src.match(/emoticons/) ) {
    images[i].title = ":" + images[i].src.split(/emoticons\//)[1].split(/\./)[0].split(/\-/)[1] + ":";
  } 
  if ( images[i].src.match(/smilies/)) {
    images[i].title = ":" + images[i].src.split(/smilies\//)[1].split(/\./)[0] + ":";

-I spent the whole day trying to pull a peanut from that heater vent. Turns out it was just a moth. -How was it? -Dry.

I love SALR and I always recommend it to all my goon-friends
That being said, I had some serious performance problems in FF and it turns out that it was SALR that was causing this. I don't know why, but I'm guessing it has to do with remembering the last post I've read in a thread. The only problem is that this wasn't triggered when I was on the forums, but I could be on a completely different site and it would do that without any tab having the forums opened. Switching between tabs was slow, watching videos would make the video lag, scrolling down wouldn't do anything, etc. All in all a real nightmare. I checked my computer for viruses because of the performance issues, but since the CPU was only going to 100% when I used firefox, I was fairly certain that I did not have a virus. Anyways, once I disabled SALR everything worked flawlessly again. I still don't know why this happened though and I don't really wanna have to disable SALR since I use it so much.
Any ideas?

I have no idea what details anybody else knows about the ignored threads problem, but I think I've found a pattern or two. I know almost nothing about coding, so I can only describe what's happening, not how or why.


Today only one out of six threads is still listed as ignored by the extension after not visiting GBS for about three days. Searching for the thread titles in salastread.sqlite turns up nothing.

I mark a new thread ignored from the thread list via the context menu and reload GBS to confirm the thread title in the SALR options. Shows up in salastread.sqlite too.

While I'm doing this, one of the threads I had ignored before gets bumped. So I mark it ignored via the context menu. Shows up as a [null] thread in the options. Good...

...reload GBS and it's visible and gone from the options! But it's now in salastread.sqlite! I go in and change the ignore flag to True by hand. Now it's ignored and shows up with its title in the options!


The threads that get wiped completely from the database and don't get their ignore flags set to true when I ignore them a second (third, fourth...) time are all threads that I've visited, and the only way to keep them ignored (for a while) is to set the ignored flag by hand.

I had been looking at the database before, but this finally confirmed that visiting the thread makes it impossible to ignore. Why they get purged completely, I have no idea.

What's weird is that I can see absolutely ancient threads in the database. I can see all sorts of leftover stuff from when SALR handled more duties. That's why it's so strange to have active threads disappear.


I hope I remembered all the details right, ask me if anything isn't clear. And I'm willing to try out other stuff if it'll help.

I blame tivac since he got excited and cleared out a ton of SQLite code when the forums took over the last read functionality. I'll have to keep an eye out for the ignore thread stuff while I work on speeding up the code.

Just place your cone down and hop on top while you show yourself and your partner the time of your lives!

I submitted a bug report and I thought it might be useful to mirror it here in the thread to see if other people can confirm the same problem. This is with the latest build.

Summary

In the Quick Edit window, "Subscribe" is defaulted to unchecked if that is the userís preference, just like in the Quick Reply window. However, unlike Quick Reply, Quick Edit will actually unsubscribe from a bookmarked thread if you edit a post in it and leave that box unchecked. The default behavior in Quick Edit is "unsubscribe if unchecked," whereas Quick Replyís seems to be "do nothing if unchecked."

Steps to Reproduce

1. Bookmark a thread.
2. If you havenít already posted in that thread, make a new post in it.
3. Use Quick Edit on that post, and uncheck "Subscribe" before hitting "Submit."
4. Look at your User Control Panel and note that the thread does not appear on the bookmarked threads list.

il cinema è la vita e viceversa

edit: solved my own problem. The quick reply and quote buttons were broken, it was a greasemonkey script causing the problem. I have no idea.

Actually, it was a highlighter script I edited myself, but I still don't know why it was breaking the buttons.

Nefarious code in question:

code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name           SA Reply Highlighter
// @namespace      cinephile AT gmail dot com
// @include        [url]http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=*[/url]
// @description    Highlights replies to your posts
// ==/UserScript==

// Change the "wordcount" variable to reflect the exact number of words
// in your list:

var wordcount = 1

var word = new Array(wordcount)
var color = new Array(wordcount)

// Edit the list of word/color combinations below. Words are not case
// sensitive. Colors can be either standard labels (red, green, etc.)
// or HEX values (#FF000, #0000FF, etc.) If adding words that might
// also be HTML tags (script, table, etc.), put a space before them:

word[0] = "Harmonica posted:"
color[0] = "yellow"

// The code below does the actual highlighting:

var body = document.body.innerHTML
var i = 0

for (i = 0; i < (word.length); i++) {

	var w = new RegExp( word[i], "gi" )
	var body = body.replace(w, "<font style='background: " + color[i] 
	+";" +"'>"+ word[i] + "</font>")

}

document.body.innerHTML = body
It worked pretty well, too

Does anyone know if there's a way to highlight the posts of people quoting you?

I'm not sure what SALR does now, but starred threads used to be stored in the main thread cache file, which would mean they'd automatically get forgotten after a couple weeks if you haven't seen them on the forum.

If that's still the case, you can delete the line for the thread from salastread.xml in your Firefox profile directory while Firefox is closed to remove the thread from the cache yourself.

4. Comment on that quoted item
5. Hit Submit.

I would get a new post instead of an edit. Now I'm getting this instead:

1. Post using Quick Reply
2. Edit post using Quick Edit
3. Click Quick Quote of post above mine
4. Never actually retrieve quote.
