Vivaldi Forum mod



  • @luetage Maybe nit-picking, but the word is sprucely = In a stylish manner.



  • @pesala Interesting, I never knew what this means. Sprucey Bonus Dark has been created and named by @wiiija and I suppose it's a moniker or play on a word? I don't know, you have to ask him, in any case I neither want to change the name, nor do I feel I have the right to -- this is for the author to decide.

    The original code of the theme can be found here: https://userstyles.org/styles/138299/vivaldi-sprucey-bonus-dark
    He linked it from the forum customization thread.



  • @luetage It's probably a play of words on Bruce Forsythe's catch phrase - the Brucie Bonus.



  • @luetage User CSS content in its box disappeared (don't know what caused this) while the option is still on.
    Not a big issue, I'll take it again from the txt is saved 😛
    Just for info ^^ (less than 1kb)



  • @hadden89 Oh damn, I'm so sorry – It's completely my fault. Yesterday I updated the extension and changed the way how User CSS is being saved. I switched it from storage.sync to storage.local to give users the ability to load a full fledged theme. There is no 8KB limit anymore, the new one should be 5MB. Although I haven't tried to break it. An average Vivaldi theme has around 10KB so there is no way anyone would ever breach that new limit.

    In any case, I didn't think about the fact that changing the storage would make the User CSS saved in storage.sync inaccessible, I should have warned you... This won't happen again, but it would be a good idea to make a backup of your User CSS outside of the extension nevertheless. The UserCSS won't disappear after updates anymore, but deleting or reseting the extension will clear the storage.

    Which brings us to the last point – there's a new Reset button on the main screen. Use it with caution, as it will reset all options, clear all storage and default the custom theme. You are basically presented with a fresh install. As precaution against accidental triggering you will be asked to click the button a second time (clicking it one time does no harm).



  • Added a Backup button to User CSS page for 1.40 now. It can't hurt to automate this a little, especially because the downloads permission is already in use for exporting the custom theme.

  • Version 1.42
    New mod: Bookmarks in navigation

    When activated adds a link to the hidden bookmarks page to the main navigation. The same link is available from the profile dropdown menu (a VF mod default fix), but we need at least 4 clicks and some scrolling to access it. For members who use bookmarks regularly the new option should be interesting.

    This wasn't easy, as it's another thing that depends on the window being loaded, and 1.41 included a version that in some instances could fail (not load the link). If you are on a slow connection, both the Signature mod and the Bookmarks in navigation mod could be dysfunctional nevertheless, in case the Vivaldi site doesn't load completely. The black tooltip for the new navigation link gladly works (for people who don't use the tooltip mod to hide them).

    If you have any other requests for mods/default fixes, please tell me. This idea I hunted down and adapted from following thread:
    @dantesoft said in How can I access forum bookmarks?:

    May I request then that all the nice links from the profile page that are hidden behind the three dots (/watched topics, /bookmarks posts, or own /posts), be made available in the forum ribbon or even the footer of the Categories (currently main) forum page?



  • @luetage More fabulousness -- many thanks 🙂



  • Version 1.43
    Update to Last edit timestamp. This mod was originally created by @Isildur and makes the hidden dateModified meta tag visible, which displays the time of last edit in UTC. It used to be css only, but I added a bit of javascript in this version – the timestamp is being displayed in your local time now, which makes it more useful imo.

    Like the Signature mod this doesn't work with infinite scroll. Both work on window.onload, page navigation and history back/forward though, which handles all cases on paginated setups. I'd be interested, if any of you use infinite scroll – this "problem" could potentially be solved, but needs work.

    Also, related to this: If any of you have programming experience and would like to help with this. It would be great to find a solution to register history changes triggered by page navigation and infinite scroll. I looked a bit into it, but only managed to register history back/forward changes so far. The existing code can be found in mods.js. Implementing and registering further history changes could potentially make the code a bit more efficient and make everything work with infinite scroll.



  • @luetage I use infinite scrolling. Education is important, infinite scrolling is importanter... 😃

    If more interest arises, I'm available for sinister experiments ... 🙂

    Simply shocking grammar. What you probably meant instead was

    infinite scrolling is more mostest bigly importantly importanter importantest 'ish.

    When are we getting our forum emojis back i wonder [still i wonder, who'll stop the rain]?



  • @steffie I could implement some sort of emojis, but what's the point, only extension users would see them. In the meantime you have the full array of unicode emojis at your disposal, which you can trigger with unicode or graphically depicted from operating system level. It's not like the forum has been stripped of emojis – sadly 😛

    Nice page, but why on the world is this only and completely created by JS?

    I do not have the slightest idea, but it works very well and is very complete. There are others with unicode emojis, also as an extension, but not by far so complete. A simple click copy the emoji to the clipboard to paste it everywhere
    But I have another in the webpanel that maybe you like more.
    This, apart from emoji ASCII, also offers all kinds of wordart

  • @morg42 There is simply no way to provide this feature with html and css alone, you need some kind of script. Seems like he is using React.

    I built this because I was teaching myself React and I needed something to build that wasn't another to-do list.



  • @luetage I don't criticize using js. There are some aspect which absolutely need js, no worries there.

    But delivering a essentially empty HTML shell and even creating the "tabs", tables and content completely in script is something beneath my understanding, and probably thus beneath my acceptance.

    Static content is served from static, cookie-avoiding servers to improve loading times and reduce access - and a framework of 6 or 7 simple tables is not?

    I don't get it.

    The aspect that in essence nobody can do anything with it, and - worse - can learn from it is an idealistic insult I'm not willing to take.

    (edit) I misread your comment - this maybe explains why he did what he did. My criticism stands nonetheless...



  • @luetage Oh damn, i'm sorry, i should have anticipated that my emojis question would get interpreted by you as being asked of you, coz i'm posting in your thread about your extension. Sadly though i was too silly to think ahead & realise this. My question in fact was not addressed to you, nor your extension; i intended it as a "meta-question" about the forum software to the V forum Dev/s. Sorry about my clumsiness.



  • @catweazle 😂 thanks.

    Pity they become monochrome & micro, once pasted in here 😓

    (You just have to copy the emoji to some imagesharer, directly linking is erased right away)
