Maybe he is dismissing the idea of making it impossible to reply if there is another page.

If the suggestion was to merely notify the user of another page, he might have had a different response.

VVVVV - Just having a warning would probably be the best option. Someone might be replying to a post on a previous page but also have read all the other pages.

Now I'm interested. I already wrote a Greasemonkey script to get rid of some of the crap like the Post button inside threads- something else duz didn't want SALR doing. I'll see if I can figure out a way to either remove the Reply button from all but the final page or have it throw up a Javascript alert warning the user.

I'm using SALR and I don't understand why in my bookmarked threads list in Control Panel, the number of new posts doesn't show up to the right of the thread title, like it does in every forum I visit in SA.

Poor design considerations aren't the fault of the user whether they learn to work around them or not. While I don't think SALR needs to fix these problems, I think it's still dumb to have a "Post" button inside threads- that was the previous thing I wrote a script to address. It completely violates the common sense in which most people would assume this button performs some function inside this thread, rather than going up one level and posting something there.

I agree. Isn't the point of SALR to improve the forums UI? Theres no sensible reason why a new post icon should exist on page 12 or a 30 page thread, nor is there any reason why a user would need to start a new thread from within another thread. Removing these items would improve the UI as a whole, and should be added at least as an option.

You must not really agree because I don't think SALR should do any of those things. Just get this script instead if you want to remove the Post button.

Why shouldn't SALR fix these things? Do you not agree that the point of SALR is to improve the UI of the forums? If not, then what is the point of SALR? You obviously agree that removing the Post buttons will improve the forum usability.

SALR streamlines the forums, but it doesn't add or remove any core functions. Most of the changes are visual, or navigational. This is just fine.

Besides, Zorilla's scripts are great

I don't think it should be implemented because it will cause more problems then solve.

Is there any way to have this extension highlight the OP of a thread, and no one else? I don't care about mods, admins or SALR developers. From what I see, its either highlight them all, or highlight none.
While the "Highlight interesting and important usernames" is an all or none on/off switch, you can just set the colors for admins and mods to transparent. Click on their color boxes in the Special User Highlighting Colors area in the Users tab and there is a button in the bottom left that says "Transparent". To get rid of SALR dev highlighting you can click on the names in the Custom User Highlighting and Notes area and hit "Delete User".

Weird- you can see from the script that xpathQuery is defined right below the metadata. Plus, "threadbar bottom" doesn't exist in the script anymore. I think I removed it because it was excessive. Try copy and pasting the script again. You shouldn't be getting errors about undefined functions when that function is clearly right there in the script.

And this script does work with SALR, by the way. The alert message gets partially obscured by the Quick Reply window, but it's enough to catch your attention.

What script is it showing the pile of errors for?

I remember seeing a Greasemonkey script that allowed you to colorize all posts by a certain user. There was a small plus button under the user's avatar that, when clicked, would expand a color palette which you could choose a color to be associated with that user -- then, the whole post element would be overlayed with that color making it easier to spot posts by that user in a thread. I can't seem to find it anymore, and am stuck using Safari for now so SALR isn't an option (if this is a feature). Is that script still floating around somewhere?

SALR certainly allows you to color posts by a specific user any way you like. There's not nifty "+" button, but just go to the SALR options->users and add them by userid# (found by clicking on their "profile" link, yours being 90241, for example). Not quite as slick, but still possible.

It does, but if you'd read his post you'd realise that he isn't using SALR because he's using Safari, not Firefox. He wants the GM script so that he can get the same feature on Safari.

There is a SALR thing for Opera. As far as I know this is the latest working copy of it, and this is where the rest of the files are. However, you'll need one of the guys already using it to explain it to you, since the thread got archived and the archives are down indefinitely. It involves setting up a web daemon or something to parse all the pages for you; I'm not really sure. If you've got plat you can PM this guy, who made it.

Edit: and sorry, there's currently no plans for a Firefox to Opera girl-stalking-database converter.

Haha, that's fine, I've actually stopped using user notes for the moment, I just really liked the drop down SA Menu, and the pop up post window. I suppose I can just use speed dial for the first, and live without the other thing, though.

In advanced preferences there's a javascript button. In there you can point to a directory where you'll need to put all the JS and style files that moho provided. You also need to run the salrd2_background.exe program. You'll have to edit the JS to use your forums name (unless you like SALR to think you are moho). You can also set some of the options, but really, I can't remember what most of them do. I think that's all you need to do.

Some people had problems with salrd2_background crashing all the time and did some poo poo with compiling/running a ruby deal. I can't help you there.

Edit: Opera SALR doesn't have a quickpost thing, so doesn't seem like it'll help you a lot.

edit: Okay, basically what happens is that when I try to use the waffleimages thingy in SALR quick post, Firefox crashes once I select an image and click open. I figured out which extension was causing the problem - see bottom of this post.

The same extension was also causing my SA dropdown menu to be white text on a white background. I have no idea why it would do something like that but once I disabled it, the menu returned to normal.

ebay

edit: Firefox and SALR both current.

List of my extensions, marked off as I test without them:
Adblock Plus
Chromatabs

Dictionary Search
Download Statusbar
Downthemall
Fasterfox
Firefox companion for ebay
flashblock [both SA & waffle are excepted]
greasemonkey
IE view lite
my timezone for ebay
SALR
Stylish
Tab Mix Plus
Unplug

At this point it looks like the extension: Firefox companion for ebay is the culprit which kind of sucks as it was somewhat useful.

Yeah, if anyone wants a hand setting up SALR for Opera just PM me or something (if you really care and don't have plat then moho at the domain RedKazan posted above [ionmine.com] works for email). I'd remake the thread but honestly I don't really wanna make it seem like the thing is where I'd like it to be currently. It does function though, if you're willing to work with it/around it. I plan on doing a significant re-write when Opera gets HTML5 client-side storage, but until then I'd kind of rather keep it in legacy user limbo.
