About this Add-on
Adds features to Mudcat pages.
- Italicises threads posted to since last visit.
- Scrolls thread to first new post (optional).
- Persists previous user name and preselects preview.
- Adds quoting and linking buttons below input area.
- Saves and recovers text in case of failure to post.
- Restyles the pages to make them more readable on a small device (optional).
The addon works with mudcat.org. It does not work with www.mudcat.org or any other variation. A few links on mudcat.org switch to www.mudcat.org: this stops the addon working. Ensure all bookmarks point to http://mudcat.org
On the main index page any threads that have a latest message date later than when you last loaded the page will appear in italics.
Scroll to first new post
On the thread page if you have visited the page before, and there are more recent posts, it will scroll down to the first of these. If you've visited before but there are no more recent posts, it will scroll down to the thread subject. There is an option to suppress scrolling.
If you are not signed in it will reuse whatever username you last used to preview or post. The preview box is pre-selected: previewing the page before posting is obviously a good idea, and will capture the text so it can be recovered using the text recovery feature even if you don't actually post it.
The quote button generates a quote from a post. Select (highlight) the text you want to quote from one of the posts and click the button. It inserts the selected text into the post window, surrounded by blockquote and italic tags, which displays as:
<small>So-and-so wrote:</small>Text you selected
There is an option to omit the quoted user.
The linkifier button turns any URLs you typed in the post box into clickable links. To use it, type your post then click the button. It will linkify any URL that begins with www. or http:// or https://
Remember that guests can post a limited number of links - probably only one.
You can optionally specify the text to be displayed in place of the URL like this:
Note that the text to display cannot include spaces: add underscores or hyphens as in the example if you want multiple words or add spaces afterwards. Also it won't linkify URLs that immediately follow an html tag such as >, so if you add your own tags add a space between it and the URL.
It recovers the last post you submitted - or tried to - in this thread. It stores the text when the submit button is pressed, including for preview. Only the last submitted text is stored so if the post fails it must be retried before submitting in another thread.
Restyles the pages to make them more readable on a small device - all optional.
- Moves the number of messages column to the left edge of the index page.
- Moves the search box to the bottom of the index page.
- Increases the font size of posts on the thread page.
If you change any options you have to restart Firefox.
