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.
Ah my bad, no big worry. I only use chrome on my work laptop as firefox runs like a dog on it for some reason (I do like my extensions), so not having a jump menu instantly accessible is probably more productive

What can it hurt? There are extensions for goon project sites on there already. Worst cast it's a worthless chunk of code for a non-goon.

Meh I cant help but agree. Before this was pretty much a hack (well actually it pretty much still is) but its becoming a pretty substantial plugin. I say why not add it to google's listing. It might even attract a few more goons who dont know about it yet.

I would call it an elegantly developed piece of software

But okay. I'll gently caress with it tonight. I think I'll have to roll out an update to do it since the update server is hardcoded into the extension itself and I'm not going to bother maintaining the Github page anymore if it's up on the official extensions site.

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.

I don't see the option under the Highlighting tab

What exactly is the option called? Maybe I'm overlooking it.

If you're still not seeing it, bring up your extensions console (Click the Wrench -> Extensions), click Developer Mode, and then click to update all extensions now. Make sure you're running v0.4.6.

I didn't see this posted yet. I'm running 4.0.249.78 beta and ran across this interesting side effect with the page navigator. I opened this thread from a bookmark and scaled the window horizontally to make it more narrow then scaled it back. You can see the result in the image here. Excellent work so far. This extension was the reason I started using Firefox and may be what brings me over to chrome.

Yeah I noticed it the other day. It's actually been there since the page navigator was first implemented. I know the cause, just need to iron out a fix. Resizing the window causes it to happen.

Is there a way to make the new forum selection menu not open a new tab, but use the current one instead?

Laopooh
Jul 15, 2000



This is great, thanks so much. I'd just been waiting for this and rikaichan to make the move to chrome.

I found a few bugs though. I sit pretty far from my monitor so I use zoomed in mode to view the forums, usually one or two clicks, and it doesn't get it right when going to the first unread post. And with resized images, the "make full size" blue box you can click in the upper left of the picture is floating way off and is unclickable.

Also, will there be anyway to sort the forum list in the omnibar to put your favorites or most visited at the top? (I know you mentioned the latter). I like Riso's idea too.

Before I go migrating the hosting to Google's extensions directory, are any graphics-savvy goons willing to clean up the icons and maybe make something, well, iconic? My hack job is a bit lackluster.

Any word on getting keyboard navigation in this? Only thing keeping me on Firefox still.

Whatever code is used to identify links to youtube to embed them also tries it's stuff on youtube doubler links, example:
http://www.youtubedoubler.com/?vide...WTf1gUIo&start2

Also, if I want to open a youtube link in a new tab as well as have SALR embed it this doesn't seem possible using left or middle clicking on the link (I presume middle clicking should be what I want, seeing as left click shows the embedded vid)

Dur my sleep addled brain thought you were talking about tracking frequently visited forums and such. Anyhew, this one looks good I'll merge it in a few.

Not in the pipeline right now unless somebody submits a patch. I think wmbest2 was experimenting with hotkeys in Javascript today (hint hint).

Well, pinning forums to the top of the list shouldn't be too hard to do.

A bit busy correcting exam sets these days, though, so I probably won't do it for now.

Yeah. I was thinking of creating a local database to store records of how often you visit each thread, which would allow for ranking later on by frequency.

Any way to enable thread highlighting without having to enable thread tracking in the forum options? It's a little spergy but I don't like seeing the threads in blue as it's loading, then suddenly switching to green. Same reason I don't use the SALR 'jump to last post' and 'mark as unread' buttons..

Unfortunately no, and with the way chrome extensions work I dont know how much we can get around that jump. The extension isn't applied to the page until the page is completely loaded thus creating that jumpy behavior. If I remember correctly Ferg wanted to do a cleanup/rewrite at some point on the settings code so maybe we can see about optimizing some of the code for better loading times.

Load times won't be improving anytime soon.

As far as tracking without the options enabled, it can be done by manually tracking with the extension like the Firefox version originally did. However, that would be a ton of redundant work for a feature that would just get in the way. The way its implemented now is similar to how the Firefox version adapted to work once the forums supported tracking natively.

Is there any possibility of future incorporation of mouse gestures to navigate the forums? That's really one of my favorite things about the SALR addon for Firefox.

I just noticed that if you resize the browser horizontally, you end up getting a ton of those quick-navigation things on the bottom-left of the page; I'm guessing one for each time the window gets redrawn?

Yeah, I noticed it recently and somebody earlier in the thread pointed it out. It's been there since page navigation was added. I know where the trouble spot is, just not sure how I want to fix it yet without breaking other parts.

I whipped up a working version of pinning; it doesn't track by frequency, but it should make a lot of people happy, I hope.

I'll leave it to Ferg to make it look good; I make very ugly mock-ups, layoutwise.

Sup, having some issues with the addon that have only cropped up recently. The # of unread posts count is not displaying at all for viewed threads when viewing a forum or my control panel. Arrows are fine, highlighting is fine, but no unread count. Is this a known issue?

Try playing with the setting for displaying the post count inline. I think one of the recent updates goofed up the stored setting.

Anybody who wants to run off of the development code, now's a good time to do a little testing. I've pulled in a number of fixes provided by Sebbe and am testing out the v0.4.7 release. Assuming all looks okay I'll roll it out in the next day or two officially.

Edit: Also, Sebbe, this doesn't include your forum pinning to the jump list yet. I want to spend more time with that and tweak it a bit.

Latest version 0.4.7 is up. Per the changelog:

- Fix navigator bug when resizing window (Sebastian Paaske Tørholm)
- Code cleanup and optimizations (Sebastian Paaske Tørholm)
- Highlight posts by friends (Sebastian Paaske Tørholm)
- Highlight posts by moderators/administrators (Sebastian Paaske Tørholm)

Yeah, I pretty much didn't do anything on this release

Remember to let Github work its magic if the updater isn't kicking in for you. It caches stuff for a bit.
