    As much as I loved this tool and the "picture once-inator", they are not working properly after the most recent ADV upgrade.

    I'd appreciate if you could update them when you have the time. :freaky

    Best,

    Hi Stacy!

    I can provide an update based on my personal experience...

    Firstmost, using ADV Picture Once-inator now has links showing up for all of the common image files that are used for the buttons (Quote, Edit, vBulletin, the stuff on the users' profile panel)

    I also tried ADV Multi-Quoter and and it didn't work for me, as I have tried it twice now. When you select 2 or more thread using this add-on, nothing shows up in the edit window, or when you click Preview Post button in vBulletin. Multi-Quote is available on vBulletin (the upgrade has it now built in on each thread post.)

    I just tried the ADV Rider De-Crufter on Hammock Tents - Super linky - got one? tell us about it and post pics here!! thread and it worked fine. :clap

    So, looks like a bit o' tweaking on the Picture Onc-inator code should do it. As for the Multi-Quoter add-on, what are your thoughts of continuing to support it? :confused

    EDIT: Screen shot...

    Stacy,

    Thanks for the linkies to the other threads. Just updated the Once-inator script and that fixed it. Looking Good! :clap

    I un-installed the multi quoter script as you mentioned it's retired. Worked very well while we needed it!

    Thanks as always.

    Reporting a bug. I'm using Mac OSX 10.4.11 with Firefox 3.6.13 on my laptop. I just installed Greasemonkey then De-crufter then Once-inator.

    Both scripts seem to work OK, but my Bookmarks Toolbar went totally blank after the install. The bookmarks in my Bookmarks Toolbar were still showing in Organize Bookmarks, but not on the toolbar.

    The only way I was able to restore the bookmarks was to delete them all then add them back to the toolbar one-by-one.

    Also did the same install on my desktop (same OSX; same version of Firefox) and the Bookmarks toolbar was unmolested. Many months ago I installed the Google Toolbar on the laptop, then uninstalled it, and been having glitches ever since. So I'm thinking this bug is peculiar to just me and has something to do with that farcking Google Toolbar that I can't seem to get completely rid of.

    I'm trying to install the decrufter for IE8 with the Vista OS.

    The IE7 pro file installed with no issues, but when I try to download the decrufter I get a "MiniDM may download this incorrectly, would you like to use it?" popup. If I click "No," I get to the normal download dialog box, but there's no IE Pro folder I can find.

    Thanks! Awesome tool--and I'm cool with installing FF if necessary, but I'm a creature of habit and used to using IE at this point.

    This script does not involve Bookmarks in any manner. It's possible that Greasemonkey has some conflict with something you've installed with your browser.

    This sounds like you have something (plugin, toolbar, etc) installed that is managing your downloads. Unfortunately, if you can't save a text file -- the De-crufter script is just a plain text file -- using whatever software is on your computer, I can't help you.

    Regarding the IE7Pro folder -- it should be created by IE7Pro when you install it. Look in C:\Program Files\IE7Pro\userscripts

    Greetings,
    I've used the IE de-crufter program on my old PC and loved it. But now, I have a new MacBook Air and my internet access is via Safari.
    Is there a de-crufter program that will run with Safari, or would I need to install Firefox?

    Thanks for your guidance! :bow

    The script works quite happily with Safari on a Mac - the GreaseMonkey functionality is built in to Safari (doesn't need an extension like FF).

    [Edit]Strange, I'm sure that I remember it working before, but it doesn't now :scratch

    If you can clarify what you mean by "there is no ADV script" I might be able to help you. Until then, no dice.

    I've started running the Firefox beta (4.0b9) which I really like.

    I'm also a Greasemonkey user, but I'm a little confused by it's status as it pertains to the FF beta.

    I'm currently running 0.8.20100408.6, which I understand isn't for FF beta 9.

    greasespot.net discusses GM 0.9.0, but my attempts to download it result in getting the same version I already have.

    Should I just wait for FF beta 10?

    Thanks!

    any support for chrome? I'm just moving to it now and it's pretty nice. Fast and solid like FF used to be.

    I'm still sorting if Greasemonkey will do it's thing on chrome but thought I'd ask just in case.

    I have no idea. You're running beta software, which is, by nature, called "beta" for a reason. ;)

    As I've said before, I do not intend to port this script to Chrome. The script is open source, so a Chrome user with programming-fu is more than welcome to take the lead.

    Or, you could pay me. Because money is an excellent motivator, and my new DR200 needs farkles. :lol3

    Uh.. yeah, I pretty much understand what beta software is after working in the industry for 30-odd years. ;)

    I was trying to get 0.9.0 downloaded & installed - which was the point of my post.

    It was based on this snip from greasespot.net:

    Greasemonkey 0.9.0 Release


    It's been a long time coming, but it should be worth the wait! The next major release of Greasemonkey, version 0.9.0, is ready. Let's dive right into the new features:

    New Features:


    • Compatibility with Firefox 4! Note that because of Firefox bug 612025 this is somewhat unsafe for 4.0b7 to 4.0b9 (inclusive). Beta 10 should be fixed (the nightly build on January 14th definitely is). Firefox 4 support is still preliminary. Everything probably works, but not everything works really well. The backlog of bugs for the next release is primarily focused on this.
    • Complete integration with the standard Firefox Add-ons dialog, treating User Scripts as just another kind of browser add-on.

    FWIW, I was able to get GM 0.9.0 installed, and it seems to integrate and function correctly for me under FF 4.0b9.

    It has come to my attention that upgrading to Firefox 5 will break this script.

    At this point, I don't know if the problem is with the script itself or with Greasemonkey. I will investigate, but with my OBDR trip coming up in two short weeks, I don't have a timeframe for when this will be fixed.

    If you care about this script and/or this matters to you, keep an eye on this thread for updates.
