  • User scripts for this forum
     OP - June 26, 2008, 12:46 AM

    NOTE: Some of these scripts might not work. I will upload updated versions in a bundle some time in the future. ~~edit~~

    Hi folks!

    I thought I'd put my programming skills a bit to use for the community here. So I crafted a little JavaScript program which finds all the embedded videos on the current page and then inserts the direct link above each of them. I hope some users here will give it a try. It certainly is useful to me, saves a bit time and hassle.
    Maybe you guys have suggestions about how you'd like to customize this forum with dynamic scripting. I'd like to hear some ideas and see if I can implement them.

    Install it for Opera:
    Go to "Tools>Preferences" (or hit Ctrl+F12). Choose the tab "Advanced". Choose "Content" in the list. Click "JavaScript Options". Choose a directory at the bottom where it says "User JavaScript files", for example "C:\UserJS"
    Copy the code below and save it as a normal text file with the file ending "js" in the directory you just set in the options, for example "C:\UserJS\coem.js". After this you'll perhaps have to restart your browser.

    Install it for Firefox:
    I haven't tried this in FF yet, but I think you first have to install the Greasemonkey extension before you can make use of my JS file. Somebody should try it and tell me if it worked, thanks.

    Hi again,

    Seems like nobody got too excited about the script I made. I hope this is gonna change now with the next script I've written to enhance this forum. This neat, little helper simply keeps track of the threads you've recently visited and prints that list in a box on the sidebar. I reckon some people complained about how they were a bit lost because of all the subforums. That's why I thought this script would be very useful when you just want to revisit a thread that you know you have visited just a few hours or days ago.

    Installation in Opera:
    See the description in the original post.

    Installation in Firefox:
    First install the Greasemonkey extension.
    Save the script below as a text file on your Desktop with the file extension "user.js" (very important in Firefox), e.g. "coem.user.js".
    Drag the script file from your Desktop on your Firefox browser window. A dialog window should pop up asking whether you want to install it. Confirm and it should work without a restart.

    Name: "List COEM Threads", File name: "coem2.user.js":

    I think you'll find that the people who get lost on the forum will get lost in the Firefox add-ons section.  Wink

    Thanks for trying though. I might test these out myself. It would be kinda handy if the AEVC mod did automatically drop the link in quote tags above the actual vid. I'll ask over at the original mod thread. If it's a simple edit and if the mod author doesn't mind I'll have a look at it.

    ETA: You've provided two different scripts there. Why is that?

    I trust that those who have decided to use Firefox instead of the dreaded Internet Exploder will have enough knowledge to click a button on the add-ons section in order to install Greasemonkey. It's not complicated if you follow the steps I have described.

    What language is this AEVC mod written in? I presume it would be very easy to add the code for that little feature.

    I've posted two scripts, the first one is new and the second one is an updated version of the script I posted in the original posting. I had problems with the code tag because it somehow screws things up, so unfortunately I had to use normal quote tags... Is it perhaps possible for you to give me privileges for uploading attachments to my postings? I promise I wouldn't abuse it...

    It's written in php and I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to modify it slightly. It's just a matter of tracking down exactly where to enter the relevant code snippet. I've posted a question over at the support forum since asking the guy who made the mod has got to be the quickest way to find the right spot in the code.
    I'll wait and see what he says. Wink

    Tell ya what: to save making more membergroups I'll just grab the scripts and attach them as txt files.
    That way anyone can use them easily.

    How's that? I attached your updated script to your OP and deleted the original version.
    I also attached your second script to your next post.
    The files should be correct but let me know if they aren't.

    Here is the script that adds support for Unicode characters including Arabic Script.

    Putting it in quotes, hope a mod or admin can make it into a file attachment like the ones above.
    File name "coem3.user.js":

    Personally I'm not the slightest bit interested in this one because I can't read Arabic anyway and neither can most of our members. How is posting reams of it going to advance any discussions here?

    I'm sure in some way it's going to be useful. Anyway I don't see what's bad about it. It could be quite useful if two Arabic speakers here have to debate the finer points of an Arabic text, and they can still include English transliterations and explanations for the English audience...

    In they're going to do that why bother posting the Arabic? All that does is lock most of the forum out IMO. Anyway I wont be using it. The default language here is English. Arabic is for forums where the default language is Arabic. Ditto for German or any other language. Up to you what you do with it.

    Thank you Berberella. I see you named it arabicscript.txt, could you please rename it to coem3.user.js?

    When the script is installed it comes into action in the background when you press the post button. Simply write your text with any Unicode characters you like and it will show up correctly when you send your posting. It's not only Arabic you can write now, but the whole Unicode reportoire is available to you now.

    By the way, is it perhaps possible to set up a special page for all the scripts I've written. I wish that the work I've done doesn't get forgotten when this thread has become inactive after some time.

    Regards,
    Aziz

    Umm, Emerald, the first file is for getting the raw links for embedded videos.

    The second file is for book marking threads you have recently visited.

    The third file is the one that enables you to use Arabic.
