Yeah the old batch script didn't pack one of the rdf files, that may have caused it to continually think it was out of date. On that note..

New Update!. (1.99.080509)
Avatar hiding and the return of the config link.

Known Issues
- See the second post (probably out of date!)
- The context menu seems to have vanished for the Firefox 3 beta, can anyone else confirm this?

Changelog
- Added functionality for the hiding of individual posters' avatars (including text). There is a new dynamic "(Show/Hide) Avatar" link at the end of the user links bar at the bottom of each post.

Bug fixes
- Fixed the "Configure SALR" link not showing up in the forum header when that option was checked.
- Restored proper manifest and the missing rdf file.

It works now, thanks for the fast response! Oh, and thanks for making the actual extension as well, it makes browsing one of the best forums of the net even better.

fake edit: I just noticed completely white mouse-over ffects over the check boxes ("Parse URLs" and so on) in the Quick Reply dialog, making the text unreadable. This is on Fedora Core 8 with Firefox 2.0.0.14 and the default Fedora gnome theme.

Screenshot attached: removed because it doesn't show on the image. Looks like a graphics driver/compiz problem?!

College Slice

I have an annoying problem that popped up somewhat recently. When I'm using the mouse gestures to navigate threads/forums, when I release the right mouse button, the Firefox context menu opens. This only happens on my laptop and it's kind of annoying, because I then have to click outside of the context menu to close it, every time. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling SALR, and disabling and reenabling this feature and it still persists. Any suggestions?

Feb 4, 2004

ZZ Pops is all about hugs and high fives.


I'm having the "SA Last Read options" on the right click menu appear at the top of the right click list on sites other than SA.

It comes and goes. It will sometimes last through firefox restarts any other times it will not. I will try to pin down if another site in particular causes this to happen.

It was just happening in all my tabs, I closed firefox, restarted, opened 3 tabs and went to three different webpages, all had the SA last read options at the top of my right click menu. I closed all the tabs and came to post this and now it is only on the bottom of the right click menu of the SA tab and not present in other tabs like usual.

Anyway, I know this is a big ramble but just a heads up and I'll report back when I have some more solid info on what causes it.

I had as issues in the past, currently I run http://junk.ionmine.com/salr2/misc_...ms-jsadclean.js and have http://somethingawful.crwdcntrl.net/* content blocked via Tools->Advanced->Blocked content... due to issues with extremely slow or incomplete loads much like you describe. I believe this also solves multiple forward/back issues. Hopefully this is kosher since you're actually having problems caused by ads, I tried to PM you but it seems you don't have plat. Not promising these will solve your particular problems obviously, but they helped with some of mine.

Unfortunately, these didn't fix it It's happening on two completely different computers, too, one with Opera 9.27 and one with 9.20.

The ad banner code looks like this right now:
code:
<div class="ad_banner_oma">

	<script type="text/javascript">pal.make_frame(29, 728, 90);</script>

</div>
It doesn't seem to match up with the UserJS you gave me; I don't know the first thing about Javascript, though, so I can't verify that or fiddle with it to make it work. Blocking "http://tenbux.somethingawful.com/*" and putting ".ad_banner_oma { display: none; }" in SALR's page.css don't fix the problem, unfortunately.

Alright, well *something* I have is causing that not to load in my main Opera install, but since I don't know what I tested with a blank slate and made a new version of the cleaner (which was outdated), new version located here. Give that a try, it was literally the only drat thing running in Opera and it seemed to prevent the i-frame load for me.

Victory at last! Thank you very much, this has been driving me nuts for the whole 3 days it's been happening. Incidentally, thanks for Opera SALR, too, it's a great program and I hope you have the time and inclination to redo it once the new forum rolls around.

In his defense, if you're running SALR it's not readily apparent whether it's a forums issue or an addon issue. I was wondering the same thing.

I recently reinstalled Firefox, and SALR is broken. Showing number of replies puts the numbers on top of the last read button. Highlighting threads with new posts does not work, and moving threads with new posts to the top does not work. I've tried deleting the extension folders and doing a fresh install. Here is the error I'm getting:

For some reason all of a sudden (as of yesterday I think?) threads that I've read but have no new posts aren't showing up as having been read at all in the forum thread view. Within the individual thread however it is remembering that the posts have been read. I'm using the most current version from the OP and Firefox 2.0.0.14.

Can you be a little more specific? What version of Firefox are you using? Did you completely wipe and reinstall everything or did you copy some files from your old profile to your new one?

I did a complete wipe - deleting everything I could find in Program Files and Documents and Settings before reinstalling Firefox and my addons. I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.14. One thing I've noticed is that my settings are saved when I try to clean and reinstall SALR. Are there addon files hiding out somewhere that I'm missing?

Looks like highlighting text when someone quotes me is also broken.

Most of the SALR settings are saved in prefs.js in your Firefox profile folder (but don't just delete that file, it generally holds all the settings for all of your extensions). You can clean them out by either deleting all the "extensions.salastread.*" lines manually in the file or by going to about :config and deleting them there. All of your user coloring settings and some miscellaneous other data about individual threads and users are saved in salastread.sqlite, which is also in the root of your Firefox profile, along with saforumlist.xml and salastread.xml.

I didn't have a salastread.xml file. After deleting the other files, cleaning out prefs.js, and reinstalling, I got this error message on startup:



My settings seem to be reset, but it hasn't fixed anything. I'm still getting the same error message I posted earlier. However, I've noticed that the files and folders mentioned in these errors don't exist. Another strange thing I've noticed is that the SALR creators have not been listed as custom highlighted users since this problem started.

After rigorous testing and hair pulling I noticed there was a subtle typo in one of the table definitions that was preventing you from installing fresh but allowing existing DBs to be patched. Sorry about that, fixed now. Anyone suffering from complete brokenness should delete their salastread.sqlite after updating, a fixed one will be generated.


New Update!. (1.99.080516)

Known Issues
- See the second post (probably out of date!)

Changelog
- "Don't display pop up error messages" is now off by default, not having them just causes confusion when things aren't working. If you want them off go back into settings and re-check it.
- In addition to the main forum index, your username is now pulled from the redirect page every time you log in, hopefully that will clear up a lot of the username sync issues.
- While filtering a thread by userid, clicking on the "?" link under a post again while take you back to that post in context in the unfiltered thread.
- Removed some depricated archives-related code.

Bug fixes
- Fixed a typo in the userdata table definition that broke fresh installations.
- Fixed an error in very rare cases when the thread Author or Killed By columns are not links (generally when a user has been removed from the forums completely).
- Mouse gesture navigation should now maintain custom "daysprune=" settings from page to page.
- Not really a bug fix but someone mentioned it and I have confirmed for certain that mouse gesture navigation while filtering a thread by userid maintains the filter from page to page (I fixed that a while ago). If it still doesn't work for you then you are dumb and I hate you (but report it anyway).

Go to about :config and tell me what your extensions.salastread.ignoredKeywords is set to. If it's set to nothing then I really don't know what would cause that on our end, but you can disable advanced thread filtering to stop the error at least. Your problem with the reply count is caused by the first error halting the script before it formats that part of the page.

Anyone else that has that problem with the reply count probably has errors turned off and don't even know they have something halting the script before it formats that part of the page.

I really don't know what would cause the regex problem then, you can either do a clean reinstall of the extension or if you don't use the advanced thread filtering, just disable it. You can also try filtering out a word to see if it still throws an error on reload, and then saving it back to blank to see if it will normalize.

Unless you had something else silently throwing an error before this last update, or some kind of custom css or extension that alters the page structure, I don't know what would be causing the reply count problem either.
