Something Awful Last Read (SALR) Redux
Old SALR Chrome thread

Requirements
Latest version of Chrome or Firefox

In order to use the highlighting features you must have the appropriate thread tracking options turned on in your User Control Panel on the forums. Since the forums now track threads for you, SALR only enhances the functionality rather than implement it.

Download Links
Chrome
SALR Redux: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...pmoglademmhiboo
Browser bar extension (requires SALR): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...khikpggfohagmfb

Firefox (this is considered ALPHA and there's probably bugs!)
SALR Redux: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fi...don/salr-redux/
Browser bar extension (requires SALR): https://bintray.com/salr/salr-firef...rome-button.zip
(In Firefox you can go to about :debugging and click "Load temporary addon")

Development
And for those of you who want to contribute: https://github.com/MasterOdin/salr-redux

Patches are accepted, so if you're a web developer and want to help out, send over a pull request!

Follow the link above to install.

Once installed, basic highlighting features are enabled. To configure options, click on the SA logo in the location bar (omnibar). You will only see the SA logo when you are viewing the forums.

Page navigator is not enabled by default. To enable it, turn it on under "Page Display" in the options panel.

Have an idea you'd like to see in the extension?

Post it in this thread or in an issue on Github.

I think this got eaten by the last thread, but when I sent r to do a quick reply, it seems to ignore the command.

Also ctrl+1 gets overridden by SALR, is there any way to restore default functionality?

You can add notes that are colored, but you cannot color a user's post based off that note currently.

My personal recommendation would be to give it a few more days before abandoning ESR(wait for the next Firefox salr redux release). And make sure your third-party cookie settings are at least "From Visited" until Firefox 58.

Or if you want the extension to automatically import your existing user notes from legacy Firefox, that may be a little ways out (probably closer to February or so; ESR updates to 59 in March so it'd have to be a bit before then).

Threw another set of changes into the pull request bucket to fix and improve quick reply and the quick reply emote parser.

Highlights:

  • Enables the quick reply emote parser to work successfully in Firefox.
  • Prevents the boogeyman from appearing in Firefox <=57 with third-party cookies disabled.
  • Fixes a typo in EmoteParser that led to cached emotes never being updated.
  • Updates emote parser to fetch over https to prevent man-in-the middle attacks.
  • Fixes two bugs in quick edit so it works on single post pages and fetches bookmark status from single post pages correctly.
  • Adds a check so we don't store missing/malformed emote data.

New SALR update for Firefox is live! Check for updates on your addons page or manually download it:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fi...don/salr-redux/

e: Possibly slightly incomplete version notes:

quote:

  • Adds imgur uploader
  • Flips a couple of default SALR preferences in the Firefox version to be more in line with legacy Firefox SALR settings (no SOAP link, last post button in page navigator reloads the page)
  • Enables the quick reply emote parser to work successfully in Firefox.
  • Prevents the boogeyman from appearing in Firefox <=57 with third-party cookies disabled.
  • Fixes a typo in EmoteParser that led to cached emotes never being updated.

Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.

Is there a way to get that little SA drop-down menu that used to show up in the File / Edit / View / History bar in Firefox? I don't see it in options but might be blind..I loved being able to pin forums there and jump around.

It's not possible to create top-level menus with WebExtensions, unfortunately. I'm not happy about it.

However, there's a separate toolbar button extension that should approximate that behavior. It's not signed yet, so you have to download it at: : https://bintray.com/salr/salr-firef...rome-button.zip then you can go to about :debugging and load it as a temporary extension.

Still needs a lot of cleanup and it will eventually get merged into the main extension.


e: Okay looking into this it's just the same thing, but I guess on Chrome they don't give you the same power over where you put toolbar buttons (only user choices seem to be on toolbar or hidden in chrome menu) so the choice was made to have a separate extension to give users the option to have or not have it. I can just change that to a browser action on Firefox since the user can put the icon wherever they want, including "not on the UI".

e2: New version on a.m.o changed to a browser action and no longer needs the separate button extension.

Live preview works now! All is right in the world! It doesn't parse smilies yet, but baby steps!

E: Is there an option somewhere to change what color Youtube links are highlighted as, without disabling the thing to play them as inline video? That is a hellaciously ugly default shade of pink-purple that makes my eyes hurt.

Oh my god thank you so much I'm so happy to have a version of SALR for the new Firefox that even does this much.

However I've found a bug that I think was around in the old version too:
When you enable the single-post button, the time on the post wraps around to a new line and leaves a weird blank space after each post.

astral posted:

Will have to see if the chrome version touches the CSS there, and if so it just needs to be a bit wider; on Legacy SALR I had adjusted the CSS to extend the width of the left side of posts to compensate for longer post times.

A temporary workaround is you can use 24hr time on the forums.

I changed the default to match the legacy one for a future Firefox version. Yeah, that was...a little too intense of a color.

I usually use 24 hour time (so that's not it for me), but I have seen it erratically on the forums also. I never thought to grab a screenie because I figured it was just a rendering engine thing or a bad load or something.

It'll happen for sure when the extension updates on Firefox (adds an extra single-page link to any open pages). But it definitely does need to be just a tad wider.

That option probably requires a page reload to apply, so if you changed it without reloading it wouldn't have applied to an already-open page. One possibility, anyway.

Seconding this, but have an option to default to new tab when the current tab is a pinned tab. Maybe also have the menu collapse upon selecting a link with left click, but stay open while right or middle clicking to open in new tabs.

The UserID is used in each of the other links in that section of a post- shouldn't be difficult to update once you whip something up.
