I just pulled your menu commits into a separate branch. Where are you getting the forum names from? I can't find that <select> element anywhere.

It's the dropdown menu at the bottom of the page.

Just merged in Sebbe's patches for a forums jump list and the ability to highlight OP's posts. The jump list takes place of the settings menu in the omnibar. I'll be tying the settings menu into the standard Options API to compensate for this, along with the "Configure SALR" link that's embedded into the site navigator already.

Is there any preference to a global button that's always present, or are you guys fine with a jump list only appearing in the omnibar?

I like the way it is now, doesn't bother me outside of SA and on SA it's only present as a link up top.

I agree with Mr. Fish. It is extremely nice having it only on SA pages and my browser actions buttons are getting pretty crowded as it is. Although that does look pretty sweet Ferg.

Can I make a minor request that's purely visual? Can we have an option to change or disable the gradiants on the thread listings?

Feature request (that I might do myself once I get to a computer that has a functioning enter key):

Make it possible to disable the recoloring of threads in the thread list.
Make it possible to disable the page navigator.

Not right now. Baby steps

Due to the nature of Chrome extensions a lot of these features are somewhat hackish. The jump list won't work until you actually view a thread, since it uses the drop-down list at the bottom of the page to parse out the current list of forums.

That being said, it would be fairly straightforward (although not necessarily simple) to track the forums you visit the most and highlight them at the top of the list. I'll leave that for a later release though.

Thanks for your work on this. This extension has made me finally start using chrome.

Is there a new way to open the options dialog? The menu you get by right clicking the grenade icon in the url box has the options item disabled. I tried navigating to the settings.html file manually but realized this probably isn't a valid way of viewing the file as no tabs were shown and no settings were being read into the text and check boxes. I take it the menu item ties into the options button found on the main extension page when accessing it from the tool menu?

I'm running chrome 5.0.307.1.

Damnit, somebody get me a tissue.

Would you mind adding a link to the settings panel in the new jump list? I removed the header link to it, and now that the omnibar icon is for the jump list only, I think I have no real way of accessing it.

You should still get the Configure SALR in the top links. As of right now this is the only way to configure it. We are currently working on getting the option link setup in the context menu of the icon.

Whoa I had no idea you could get a context menu for the extension by right-clicking a page action.

So there's an Options API for Chrome extensions that I haven't utilized yet, simply because it broke the Configure SALR link (I tested this feature when implementing the jump list). I've been chatting with wmbest2 today about it and he may have a solution for it. I'll try to get a fix out ASAP.

Sebbe gave me a patch for this last week. I merged it in and forgot to note it in the 0.4.5 build. You'll see the option under the Highlighting tab.

Awesome, just shoot me a pull request on Github if you have something you want me to merge.

I just rolled out v0.4.6 with wmbest2's fixes for the settings dialog, so bloodynose, you should be able to get there again.

Also fixed the issue that was preventing the custom SALR buttons to be disabled, and gave Sebbe due credit for his OP highlighting patch which went unnoticed in the last release.

It wouldn't really matter anyways. The way Chrome updates extensions is very non-intrusive and totally in the background. You would end up with the latest version relatively fast if you downloaded the wrong one.

I notice in the OP the grenade icon appears in one screenshot in the omnibar, and in another as an actual icon, however in my chrome it only appears in the omnibar. Is there anyway to get it to work as an icon so I can access the jumplist without having to already be viewing the forums?

Also, if you right click the grenade icon and click "Something Awful Last Read" the details page doesn't appear to exist yet. Just for completeness would it be worth having a simple details page?

If you read back in the thread a bit you'll see I asked preference from people. I got 2 votes for omnibar and one for the browser I think. Unfortunately you can't make either of these optional right now, so if there's an overwhelming push to get it on the browser bar, I'll switch it up. The screenshot you're seeing was taken while I was experimenting with this idea.

Looks like this assumes you're hosting the extension with Google...Somebody asked me to do that earlier and I just assumed the Github page was fine. I don't really feel like this belongs in the Google extensions repo for public consumption. Any opinions?
