None of those are IN the omnibar, they're on the button bar with the page/wrench icons though. Talking about a tiny icon inside the url bar.

FlashBlock sticks an icon in the URL bar, if you want to test if it's the app itself or extension at fault.

I just installed it in my home PC (Windows 7) and works like a charm. I'm pretty sure the icon wasn't on the omnibar on my work PC (windows xp), but I'll check tomorrow, and I'll try that extension as well to see if it shows up.

Please do, I'm wondering if there's an XP-specific version of Chrome that has a bug in that feature.

Well, I started up the computer today, logged in and, surely enough, there it is. I don't know whether I'm a moron and missed it the first time (wasn't looking at the omnibar but at the buttons to the side, near the wrench) or if the reboot had something to do with it. It's probably the former, but I'm going to say it wasn't there yesterday so I don't feel so bad. vv

Quick question (probably not related to the extension): With firefox, when I use the "go to first unread post", it loads the page in the correct "position", then loads all images, which would usually move the page a bit, and then finally snaps back to the first unread post. Chrome isn't doing this, it shows the post but with the image loading I usually en up staring at a whole different post. Any ideas?

Excellent, glad it fixed itself.

Minor annoyance of mine as well. Right now the extension just links directly to the post, but after images load and all that it will be out of position. I'm not sure if it's Firefox that fixes that or the extension itself, but it's something I've been meaning to look into.

Hey,

I'm on probation so I can't post, but maybe Edmond Dantes with the page adjustment problem in the SALR-thread could try toggling the "Adjust the page position to the top of the requested post after the page loads"-option in the forum's User Control Panel?

Awesome extension!

/brylcreem

Teddybear, for your issue try these steps:

1. Right click the omnibar icon and select "Manage extensions"
2. Click on "Developer mode" in the top right corner if it's not already expanded
3. Under the SALR extension, you should see a section for "Inspect Active Views". Click the salr-chrome.html link.
4. When the inspect window pops up, press Esc to make the javascript console appear.
5. In the console, type: localStorage.setItem('highlight-self', 'true')
6. Refresh a forums thread page with your own posts and see if they're highlighting.

If that step works, you can repeat it with the other keys:

highlight-moderator-admin
highlight-original-poster
highlight-friends

I think the extension did it, or at least it would seem so from this option:

I've done that, and it hasn't worked. Local storage shows that highlight-self and highlight-moderator-admin/original-poster/friends are all set to "true," but none of them seem to be working. I don't know much about javascript code, but it doesn't seem like the script is calling these settings anywhere.

Could you list all of the settings you have enabled? Maybe you've got some whacky configuration that's making these settings trip up.

Last I checked there was no official API yet for Chrome extensions to create a popup window. Just waiting on that, then I'll continue implementing it. It's almost entirely usable in it's current state, just awkward due to the popup blocker.

Mouse gestures has been mentioned a bit, but no work/plans yet. Vote it up on Uservoice if you want to get it some attention.

I just looked at the uservoice thing. I will post the necessary CSS for the nice blockquote stuff.

code:
/*SA OP Color change.*/
.oppost
	{
		background-color: #FFF2AA !important; 
		/*border-collapse: collapse*/
	}

.bbc-block 
	{ 
		background-color: white !important; 
		border: 1px solid black !important; 
		padding: 0px !important; 
	}
	
.bbc-block h4 
	{ 
		border: none !important; 
		border-bottom: 1px solid black !important; 
		font-style: normal !important; 
		padding: 3px !important; 
	}
	
.salrQuoteOfSelf h4 
	{ 
		background-color: #C691D9 !important; 
	} 
	
.bbc-block blockquote 
	{ 
		padding: 7px 7px 7px 7px !important; 
	}
This is if someone quotes you.

code:
.salrQuoteOfSelf h4 
        { 
              background-color: #C691D9 !important; 
        }

Restrict size of images on.

Just wanna say that this port was what drove me to jump ship from Firefox, really like it right now in it's infancy, hopefully the Mouse Gestures can be implemented soon. One feature I liked from the FF version was that the Replies notch on forums would be highlighted Yellow if you posted on that thread. Any easy way to implement this?

probably a little ridiculous to suggest, but for the quick reply issue, would it be possible for it to embed a dialog box/mini reply box at the bottom of the page rather than a pop up?

Yeah actually that would be very doable. It would eliminate the possibility of trying to submit a reply while on the wrong page as well.

I know Ferg's busy but if anyone can help me try to figure out how to disable thread highlighting that'd be awesome. I love SALR but to me I just can't use it at all with thread highlighting enabled. I even tried making the colors the same as the stock forums but it's just not what I want because it still adds a gradient to it.

I really should get around to adding a toggle for that, as it's also stopping me from using it.

I've just been too lazy to actually read through the highlighting code so I could add a switch for it.

Shading occurs between lines 186 and 205 in salr.js (http://github.com/scottferg/salr-ch...ster/js/salr.js). You should just have to add the option and wrap it there.

Ah laziness. I just added a toggle for updateStyling. Should probably be more split-up, but then again, it was just a quick fix for myself.

In other news, it seems pretty messy that we have to keep track of essentially the same (by now pretty huge) list in two places in toolstrip-handler.js; there must be a way we could cut down on the size of it.

Agreed, and this has been on my mind for a while now. wmbest2 and I already cut down on the requirements to add a feature considerably earlier on in the extensions life, but at this point (and I'm not reading the code at this second so I may be a little off) I believe the CSS ID's would have to be renamed to create a 1-to-1 system for adding a new setting. Unfortunately, doing this would wipe out any existing user's settings. So it's a question if everybody using the extension is willing to tear off the bandaid to make our lives easier, or if that's too inconvenient.

Thinking about it now, there's hardly enough settings for anybody to get their panties in a twist if they had to reconfigure them all. Maybe it would be a good idea to just go for it.

go with whatever is easiest, I don't use it to the extent where it would kill me to reset everything. In fact, it would take me like 5 seconds to set everything (the settings are well laid out).

That was easy. For everybody concerned from a development side, here's the commit: http://github.com/scottferg/salr-ch...ba3c46789e4321f

New API essentially determines a settings internal name by how you set it on the settings page HTML. All setting ID's are camel-cased, no questions asked. If you add the setting to the settings page, you can then access it immediately from the content script when we render it on the page.
