    One more thing to log; I keep getting to the bottom of a page (Android chrome) and accidentally pressing the insert image button. I then get the insert image dialogue box but there is no way to close it without pressing Back. This then jumps out of the thread and back to the main forum page.  Annoying.  Thanks!

    OK, so I’ve finally sorted out the redirects from the “Replies Created” page. It’s far from perfect but it works. As always this only works for Chrome on desktop. Download link as before: https://goo.gl/6h9thV

    I can’t promise I’ve not broken anything as I’ve not done much testing (though I’ve also slightly changed some other stuff).

    So when you’ve installed that (see upthread for install instructions), if you click on the “Posted X ago” link in the bottom left of each post on a “Replies Created” page (eg mine is https://singletrackworld.com/members/aracer/forums/replies/ ) it will take you to the thread the post is on. Don’t get impatient, you’ll have to wait as it’s downloading an intermediate page before it redirects so it will take a few seconds. It also takes you to the start of the thread.

    I’m not sure there is any easy way around either of these issues client side and I’m not sure I CBA spending any more time on it – hopefully they might get around to fixing the forum at some point (though any info on actions to use with http://singletrackworld.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php would be gratefully received – I presume it would be possible to get the required data via ajax/json calls on that interface?*)

    *and before I get accused of hacking, that URL is available in plain text in the HTML

    Not a bug, (well to me it is).

    At the foot of each page of posts there’s text along the lines of

    “<span style=”color: #444444; font-size: 12px;”>Viewing 14 posts – 1,241 through 1,254 (of 1,254 total)”</span>

    If this is just done in PHP could you please get rid of the awful Americanism “through”

    “<span style=”color: #444444; font-size: 12px;”>Viewing 14 posts – 1,241 to 1,254 (of 1,254 total)”</span>

    Pretty please?

    Haven’t read this thread, but has it been mentioned that the extra-large type used in quotes feels quite shouty and inflammatory … ?

    It’s a special feature for the EU thread but damn immigrant posts have come over here taking our quotes.

    Premier Icon CaptainFlashheart

    Surely it isn’t unreasonable to expect to be able to put words in inverted commas without all the formatting shit shitting up the shitting page?

    As on another thread. Oddly, doesn’t happen here.

    Well done aracer (haven’t tried it but I bet it works and that’s a particularly daft aspect of the new setup)

    (crossed fingers for a <span>less quote)

    Edit – nope

    Edit again – has anyone got aracers script (on this page) to load?

    I get

    <span style=”background-color: #eeeeee; text-align: center; color: #303942; font-family: monospace; white-space: pre; font-size: 14px;”>Could not load manifest.</span>

    [thicko]

    Should I be able to magically do quotes without all the formatting text once the tools thing is installed?

    And what is easyquote?

    And do I have to allow developer mode for it to run? (get a warning every time I start chrome that I shouldn’t allow this)

    [can’t seem to stop thickomode]

    Premier Icon aracer

    Yes, you need developer mode, it won’t run or install without that, as it’s not an official release. I’ll probably push it to chvck to publish on the Chrome webstore in a day or so though (assuming we don’t work out transfer), as I’ve pretty much done all that I’m going to do. Then it will be an official extension you won’t need to do that for.

    If you enable easy quoting you get a “quote” button next to the poster name at the top of each post. Click that and it inserts the text of the post into the edit box inside < blockquote> tags which should put it in a nice quote box when you post. However I’ve no idea if it works properly or produces funny extra characters for those who have the buttons, because if you do you have extra stuff running in the background behind the quote box which does funny things. I don’t have those buttons as the scripts aren’t working for me, so I don’t know what it does.

    You do have to enable most things in the options box – the only things which run by default are adding the links to your reply page and putting text in quote boxes back to normal size. I should really have made options for those as well, but I’m lazy and I figured everybody would want those.

    So you do, though it doesn’t seem to do anything on my PC.  Not to worry, the gotothread thing works fine and that’s more useful to me.  Thanks

    Same here, I have a button but it doesn’t work

    I’m guessing you guys have the official buttons – I think the scripts running to make the clever new stuff work inhibit the extension quote button

    Week down and still living in interesting times.

    To be honest, when it is all fixed, I might write an extension to insert <span> spam in my posts.

    I think I have Stockholm Spandrome 🙁

Then it will be an official extension you won’t need to do that for.

    Ping me an email when you’re ready and we’ll see what we can do with transferring (I think it might be a case of submit form to Google with email/username of person to transfer to and they then manually do it) and if all else fails I’ll update it.
