Hi,

Newbie to the group and pretty much a newbie to Greasemonkey and Firefox.

I'm running Contacts Organiser and Follow Comments.

Follow comments has been an absolute boon. Contacts organiser doesn't quite do what I expected.

how do i make hot links ? do i need GM for that if so someone point me to it
Balaji Dutt Posted 10 years ago. Edited by Balaji Dutt (member) 10 years ago
drivebybiscuits1 - you don't need GM to create "live" links, you just need to type in a href="https://www.flickr.com" Flickr Rocks! /a (with angle brackets) to get Flickr Rocks!

Though the Flickr Rich Edit GM script does make it easier..
drivebybiscuits1 10 years ago
Balaji there has to be an easer way
Balaji Dutt 10 years ago
drivebybiscuits1 - the easier way that I know of is to use the Rich Edit GM script. You can then select the text you want to make a link, choose the link option that the script adds and paste the URL into the box that pops up.. the script takes care of the rest.

I apologize for the messy looking example earlier.. Flickr tries to convert stuff into a link even if you don't want it to.. the only way to avoid that is to leave off the brackets.

Wrt "live" links, the Firefox extension Copy URL+ (with a configuration extension known as Selection as link (courtesy of marbux)) makes it really easy to insert links into anything that's html. You select some text in the page you want to link on, and then select the menu item "Edit->Copy URL+->Copy URL+" . Now you just paste into the page where you want the link to appear, as I did a few lines above.

You might also find my flickr comment tools useful, it's a rich text editor with some image embedding options, works with most other GM scripts too
Andreas Helke Posted 10 years ago. Edited by Andreas Helke (member) 10 years ago
Not necessarily the best programming but the most usefull for me are the High Res Flickr script for 1000 pixel photos in the photopages and my derivatives of this script for 500 pixel images in several thumbnail pages. I managed to convert group pools, the photostream, explore calender, search and set detail pages. With most of the small and square thumbnail pages I had no success so far.

Here is the links to the stuff mentioned and a screenshot of my enhanced photostream page:

HighRes Flickr Photo Page - Comparison with the normal Display in Opera


Other essential scripts are the multi group sender which starts fast even with a list of 1000 groups and the more user links or virtual sets greasemonkey scripts which provide access to a users most interesting photos.

Everything else is optional but I still have another 20 or 30 scripts active.

heres some good ones that i use that dont seem to be mentioned yet:

Greased LightBox This script lets you browse sets of thumbnails on flickr and some other sites much quicker. when you click a thumbnail or a direct link to an image, the large size image will open up on the current page you are on, saving you having to visit the flickr page for each image, which can save quite a bit of time. It takes a bit of getting used to, and its also worth noting the shortcut for not opening images with lightbox is to hold ctrl and shift buttons when you click on a thumbnail.

Quick View of photo comments This script by CK, works on a similar principle to the above, except it works on an images comments. when you click the comments link under a photo, it will popup a list of just the images comments, saving loading the whole photo page. Can be very useful.

Multi Tag Search This script by mrjoro makes it easier to search for similar images to the one you are looking at, by letting you make a selection of that images tags and do a tag search on those tags.

Flickr Buddy Interestingness This cool script by Mortimer? adds a menu item to the user icon buddy menu, that lets you quickly see a users most interesting images.

thanks Steev. Those were some good ones. Wish the comment box one had the "add-comment" at the bottom still though.

I really can't do without Flickr Auto Page anymore..
what it does is that is auto loads the next page when you reach the bottom of the one you're viewing, and when done loading, it just pastes it underneath making it into one very long page instead of several different.
this way you never have to click "next page" again, you'll have an infinite scroll..
it works on both picture pages and forums as well..

Sometimes I like to view images on black backgrounds. This script userscripts.org/scripts/show/9589 adds the Adobe Lightroom "Lights Out" functionality to a Flickr photo page. The lights out functionality causes the browser window (with the exception of the photo) to be overlayed with a semi-transparent medium grey image. Upon a second click, the browser window is completely
blacked out.

To go back to the normal view, just click anywhere on the black background. Very nice tool!

I have a GM script that alphabetizes the list of sets and group pools a photo is in the photo page. It also re-ordered the tags list. I can't seem to find it anymore to install it on a second browser.

Edit: Found it here. Sort tags and groups/sets in photo page. The effects are trivial, but it really helps me to find what groups I've put the photo in already.

Please Help!! These scripts are awesome -- I had several and they were all functional one day, but gone the next. (i.e., steev's group organizer, group tracker and contact organizer).

I put a lot of time into tagging my groups and contacts. For a reason unknown or understood by me, everything is gone even though these scripts still show up under the greasemonkey tools.

For several days I tried to get them back -- Finally I uninstalled each one and then re-installed them. Still nothing!?

How can I get these great tools to work properly??

ScorpionRising,

Do you use FireFox? I have no way of knowing for sure but I have read several posts in script sites saying FF3 have some functionality issues with GreasyMonkey. Good luck!
ScorpionRising 9 years ago
Hey There, ah doo dah!

Thanks for the reply. Not sure what the problem is. I do use Firefox, so maybe that's the problem? It was working before, as I said. Now, nada! Does Firefox update itself to the newest version??
If you can remember what threads you read those posts in, I would greatly appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.
ah_doo_dah 9 years ago
SR. i am not sure which thread exactly I read it in. The latest version of firefox is 2.0.0.11 I've been using 2.0.0.9 and it still works for me. I did not however read of any solutions or exactly if it was the firefox update. I don't normally update until I read the release notes. And lastly, I do not allow anything to automatically update, but I believe FF should always ask or notify you an update is available so you should have noticed.

Good luck,
Doo_dah
ScorpionRising 9 years ago
I've been searching through the threads and have yet to find anything concrete.

Yes, Firefox does notify you of each update -- As I am far from being a technical whiz, I always just click O.K. and away we go . . . I don't read the "release note" -- Don't even know if I would understand them. Never dreamed it could cause me a problem -- And it never has in the past few years, but I am very new to Flickr and the greasemonkey scripts.

My oldest son is a computer geek and he's the one that set me up with Firefox in the first place -- I'm going to ask him about what he can find in regards to the actual version I am running on my laptop, etc. Then I'll check back and see if anyone can help with my updated info. Thanks for your help, ah doo dah!

Problem Resolved! It seems that in the "uninstall" process, greasemonkey was disabled.

Is there a script that allows you to return to page 'x' once you've commented on a photo within a pool or someone's photostream or does Flickr already have that facility and I just haven't found it yet? If I'm on page 6 for example and I comment I can't see how I can get back to page 6 directly so that I can carry on looking at the rest of the photos on that page and I find it a bit annoying that I have to go back to the first page and from there go to page 6 (for example) and that's not taking into account that sometimes I forget what page I was originally on and have to click through several of them until I find where I was.
ToniVC PRO 9 years ago
One of the most useful scripts (IMHO) that I think nobody mentioned as yet: Flickr Commented On.

This adds and small icon over any picture that shows you if you have already commented it, just like the favorite icon works. Very useful when you do lots of comments ;)

Is there a script that I can change or update the "Taken with ___" info?
Eli the Bearded 8 years ago
Esther17: there are scripts to help you find out more about the camera used, but if you want to change your photos to show different "Taken with" information for others, that's out of the range of Greasemonkey.

It can be done, but it needs to be done on your computer before you upload the images. I use exiftool for that (there is an obviously named group for it), but it is not an easy to use tool unless you like the command line.
Esther17 8 years ago
thanks, Eli. I was just hoping to see if i could change the camera type, as I have a ton of film and pola shots, and i wanted them to reflect the actual camera i used, as opposed to things like "Noritsu S2 Film Scanner," or "Nikon D40" (no scanner, so i take pics of the pola shots)...

thanks, again. :)

Don't know what might be happening but I have put it on at least 5 machines and each was running a different version of 'XP' and works great on all - the icon turns the usual pink just like if you had added it as a favorite. Might try turning some others off and see if there might be a conflict.

Just had to do that myself (find the culprit) - my scroll bar went away :)

I like this one. Only problem is it does not work well with challenge groups. It works from the time the photo was posted to the discussion thread, not the pool. I'm not sure though if this has anything to do with whether the photo has to be authorized by an admin or mod first, meaning it goes into a pool queue first so that we can check if the photo actually did win a challenge and received an award before being allowed in the pool. I'm an admin in a challenge group, and I just admitted a photo a few minutes ago into our pool, but it said the photo was posted over 4 hours ago, and that is actually the time it was posted to the challenge thread.

I've installed this script as I love the idea of it but I only get the coloured 'reminder' that I've commented on it once I've accessed the photo and not on the main page which is where I was expecting it to be. Does anyone know if there is another script or an update that allows us to see beforehand if we've already commented?
