Can you add a column with the date of activation of SiteDelta in the "Monitored pages" list?
It would be fine to sort monitored pages also by date.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 12547151, 6 years agoThe old SiteDelta was great, in part because it just got on with the job. It would tell you when a page had changed and show you what had changed when you went there either from the SiteDelta sidebar or from a regular bookmark.
I am delighted that SiteDelta appears to be going to live in Mozilla's new world.
1) the list of pages in the sidebar is in some random order and there is no way to search the list. Needs to be in alphabetical order.
2) The yellow "SiteDelta Watch monitors this page" bar at the top of an opened monitored page needs a timeout. It also has a button which offers to highlight changes but when you use it it says no changes found which is annoying.
3) Some pages now take MUCH longer to open and formatting can be a bit off eg Goodreads notification pulldown just shows raw HTML (or other code)
4) Needs a "scan all pages" button and some indication that a page is being scanned
5) There are several pages in the sidebar that I simply don't recognize
I look forward to the new releases.1) In 0.14.7, the page list was sorted by URL, but starting in 0.14.8 it is sorted by title
2) Actually, the "highlight changes" button should not be present if there are no changes.
3) This might be due to the fact that the page is only shown once fully loaded, and not incrementally during load.
4) From 0.14.8, the sidebar scan now button will scan all pages if none are selected.
As you never mentioned scheduled scans, you should also try SiteDelta Highlight which might improve your situation concerning 2) and 3) - just enable the advanced features on the configuration page.
- Rated 4 out of 5by olliebean, 6 years agoIt's a great start, but it needs a couple more features to be a fully worthy successor to SiteDelta:
- a toolbar icon to open the sidebar
- ability to rename and re-order pages in the monitored pages list- Unfortunately, web extensions are not allowed to programmatically open a sidebar ("sidebars can only be opened by the user"), so the SiteDelta toolbar icon cannot do it. However you can use the default "Sidebars" button available in Firefox (but not shown in the toolbar by default) to toggle the sidebar
- You can rename pages after clicking on the "expand" button on the left side of the yellow SiteDelta Watch information bar; showing the monitored pages in alphabetical order is on my todo list.
- Rated 4 out of 5by mi28, 6 years agoThe link in the check page is disabled.
I want you to be able to move to the link destination.Starting in version 0.14.3, you can follow links in watched pages (allowing you to watch the linked page), or hold Ctrl while clicking to open the linked page in a new tab.
- Rated 4 out of 5by nicopopo, 6 years agoFor example, how do you disable automatic checking and how do you check the list manually?For now, you can set the scan interval to a big number (e.g. 525600 for one year) to make sure automatic checks will not occur. Starting with 0.14.3, you can set the scan frequency to 0 to disable automatic checks and use the new "scan now" / "mark as seen" buttons to manually manage the scans.
- Rated 4 out of 5by stvol, 6 years agoКак можно самостоятельно редактировать правила, созданные для отслеживаемых областей?In SiteDelta Watch, click the expand button on the left side, below the yellow information bar. There, you can add scan and ignore regions by clicking "add new" and clicking in the corresponding area in page shown on the right (you may have to move the mouse around until you find a place where the right region is selected as shwon by the outline).
Advanced users can click the "add new" button twice and manually enter the xpath selector to define the region.
