Just reporting a minor bug, it looks like the context menu isn't loading the correct thread ID for Ignore/Star This Thread. For me it's showing the same thread id no matter what thread I right-click. The pop-up notification box after choosing one of the options still has the correct one, though.

Yeah, astral mentioned that in the channel the other day. Something weird was going on somewhere. It'll get fixed eventually.

Yeah, a strange set of circumstances seems to cause that weird behavior. I spotted it the other night, and with a little bit of testing I found out this bug has been around since I originally got the context menu to start behaving in FF3 back in June. It's on my to-do list to both isolate the exact steps necessary to reproduce the bug and to figure out just why it's happening. Then it'll get fixed.

Thankfully, as noted, it doesn't affect the actual ignoring/starring, just the display in the contextual menu.

WTF?

The new additions are working out pretty well, except in some threads some images in unread posts are appearing very small, and when I click on them, they open in a new window (or tab, in my case).

I also have the GM script that futzes with [timg] tags, so maybe that's causing a problem?

Probably- I think Greasemonkey scripts run after SALR does, so try and see what happens when you turn that script off.

As a bit of an update, it seems that the context menu label issues happen if you try to access the context menu before the page has fully loaded. Try to avoid doing that in the meantime, or else you will have to restart your browser to get it working properly again.

Nope, same problems - little image which goes to an outside link.

It seems it might be just that particular image. Does Paintedover do weird things with their thumbnails?

I have some questions that will undoubtedly point out how dumb and unobservant I am.

1. How does one ignore a thread? I see no way in which to do this.

2. What does the "Enable advanced thread filtering" option do in the Forums sub-menu of SALR preferences?

3. This is probably unrelated to SALR, but does anybody know why my signature doesn't show up in a thread even when I've got the box checked to show it?

1. Right click it.

3. Signatures are temporarily turned off to reduce load. It's SA's doing, not ours.

Okay, ignoring threads is 100% NOT working for me. I'll click on "ignore" and nothing happens. So I checked the ignored threads list in the settings menu and it's still blank. I'm not really sure what version of SALR I'm using but it should be the latest nightly. Firefox version 2.0.0.17

Can you post the SALR version from your extensions manager? If you aren't updated to one of the last two nightlies (1.99.081101 or later), ignoring threads isn't going to be working well at all.

Also, thread ignoring is working fine for me with the latest nightly on the portable Firefox 2 I use for compatibility testing. Edit: egg, face, etc.

---

In other news: the next nightly build will have:

  • Fixed starring-thread cache handling; starring threads will work now (doesn't add to bookmarks, but to the 'starred threads' menu you can have in your SALR menu)
  • Fixed saving ignored/starred thread titles immediately from thread view
  • Fixed saving starred thread titles immediately from forum view
  • Slightly better/more reliable context menu behavior (mostly redid how the context menu items are shown/hidden, removed an unnecessary "hide the SALR context menu" function call that caused annoyance)

"I can't fit my meat into my new shorts!"

You might want to put an exemption to the "hide images in seen posts" for emotes and such, as in many cases I'm seeing stuff as simple as replaced with a full like of "this image is hidden" text.

I was trying to think of a simple way to implement this, but since the emotes are updated so frequently with new ones, I don't know.

As far as I know, all of the emotes are hosted on somethingawful, so it could possibly be done by domain. Although that would probably include the "user has decided to show you this" image attachments, too, so I dunno.

I still need to play around with the feature a little more before deciding whether or not I like it. I don't often visit image-heavy threads anymore, so it's less important to me.

There is an exemption for emotes hosted in SA's servers. Any you see that are blocked are hosted remotely. If not, link me a post so I can see where it is linking to and fix SALR.

Sorting by author right now sorts by userid. It doesn't carry over to the other pages though, unless you manually add the sort string to the url. Could SALR include a way to automatically add the "&sortorder=asc&sortfield=postusername" on pages past the first? I guess it'd be a different button on the forum navigator.

By 'nothing happens' do you mean you do not even get the "Are you sure you want to ignore thread#(number)" dialog? Or do you get the dialog, but the thread does not immediately disappear from the thread list and will not show up in the ignored threads preference pane?

Thanks to the hard work of astral, there's a new version out!

Fixed
Thread (un)ignoring is working again
Thread (un)starring is likely working as well
Embedding international Youtube videos working
Added link to view the thread a single post comes from

I noticed that since the latest upgrade (current version 1.99.*) stickied threads are also stickied in my bookmarks list. As in they are affixed to the top of the list even if they have no new posts (when the show threads with new posts option is checked). In previous versions stickied threads behaved like every other thread in my bookmark list.

This raises two concerns for.
1. Would someone be willing to change this behavior so that stickied threads aren't stickied in my bookmark list? Maybe as an option?

2. Would someone be willing to add an option that makes it possible to make the the threads I create sticky, both in forums listing and bookmarks?

Just tested this by bookmarking the stickies here in SHSC and didn't see them bumped to the top of my control panel. So I have no idea what you're talking about.

Turning off restores expected behaviour.
After playing around with things, it seems the bug lies with "Show theads in bookmark list with new posts first" option. Unchecking it makes this work as expected.
