christopherfinke writes "I've been working on Slashdotter Firefox extension for Slashdot users, and version 1.2 has been approved by the Mozilla admins. Features include the ability to auto-add cache links after story links (from any of Coral Cache, Google Cache, or Mirrordot), a quick-reply feature that adds a 'Reply' option to the right-click menu when you select text in a comment, the option of styling all of Slashdot's pages like a chosen Slashdot section, links in the comment sections that allow you to toggle open/closed all of a comments replies, and more. All of Slashdotter's features are optional, and the extension is compatible with Firefox, the Mozilla Suite, Seamonkey, and Flock."

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

eh? "All of Slashdotter's features?" I'm working on these definitions:

Slashdot, n, slashdot.org

Slashdotter, n, one who uses slashdot.org

I'm pretty sure that's right, so the sentece should be "All of Slashdot's features" if the features belong to the site, or "All of a Slashdotter's features", if the features belong to the individual who uses the site

Yes. Click this link for a sample of the dupe free Slashdot link [this-page-...-blank.org]

Re:Features (5, Informative)

Jugalator (259273) | more than 8 years ago | (#15013547)

If it parsed the story tag "dupe" (which actually are in DIV's using the CSS class "tags", so they should be identifiable), and could associate these tags with their detailed story (DIV's with CSS class "details"), these DIV's can then be hidden by applying the appropriate collapsing "display:none" style, and if you've got this far, possibly also add a link to expand these collapsed stories if you're still interested.

Re:Features (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#15013676)

But as soon as tags are able to directly affect anyone's experience, the trolls will inevitably start abusing them to disrupt the site. If a popular Firefox extension hides stories with a "dupe" tag, we can expect to see people racing to tag every story as a dupe... and even if their tagging ability is revoked, the average Slashdot troll will probably think that well worth it if he has managed to present some of the site's most devoted readers with a blank front page even for five minutes.

In other words, until we know what kind of measures have been taken to prevent this kind of abuse, it might be safest to rely on manual filtering, or on highlighting/shrinking anything tagged as a dupe rather than removing it altogether.

Re:Features (4, Funny)

Yst (936212) | more than 8 years ago | (#15013583)

Or, for that matter, would the plugin author consider providing functionality which would systematically add dupes and typos to other sites using Slash, so as to bring them into closer conformity with Slashdot's standards and make them more familiar in appearance and function to a Slashdot-acclimatised audience?

Re:Features (1)

Perl-Pusher (555592) | more than 8 years ago | (#15013589)

Does the extension automatically remove dupes and fix typos in the titles of submitted stories???

I think an auto reply "this is a dupe" might be in order. Along the same lines as "reply to selected text", which seems to be working fine here.

I'm not trolling.. this is serious...
I'm used to using firefox but I'm on a machine with the mozilla suite and I thought I'd try this out. I installed it to my profile directory, restarted mozilla, and... I'm stumped--where is the extension manager in mozilla 1.7.5? I thought it was under Tools or Preferences, but I'm not seeing it either place... and about:extensions brings up a blank page... I tried installed the Web Developer Toolbar extension, too, in case it was just a problem with the Slashdotter extension, and can't find anything, still. There's not even a toolbar layout editor like in firefox, so how am I supposed to configure where the web developer toolbar would go, if I could even figure out how to make it show up?!?!
Any help would be appreciated... I feel really stupid.. I checked some FAQs I could find, and the mozilla addons page, but no luck. :(

Hmm... Looks like the select-text replies aren't AJAX, but it turns the reply to this link into an AJAX-enabled thingy.

Now we just have to wait for the VCs to come along and dump millions on the poor guy for using the word AJAX.

The AJAX replies feature isn't for replying to comments, it's for those links that say "X Replies below your threshold." It makes it so you don't have to load a new page to see those replies.

X replies under your current threshhold can be expanded with ajax now and are displayed in a much cleaner manner (the background is a slightly different colour and you don't lose your place in the page).
This is a really nice extension, however it would be better if slash could impliment the modifications on site(apart from the quoted replies).

I mean, however do Internet Explorer users survive without the niceness :P

CptnHarlock (136449) | more than 8 years ago | (#15013459)

I've been hoping for Taco to include the "colapse thread" feature for a long time. I still think it should be native instead as in the form of a plugin - then everyone could (and probably would) use it.

It would make it a lot easier to find the next real comment after a comment tree created by some Troll post... Another positive thing is that we'd get rid of the "high positioning" replies that normaly end up in the first tree. Are you listening Taco?.. :)

It's really quite nice (4, Informative)

A Dafa Disciple (876967) | more than 8 years ago | (#15013460)

This was the first I had heard about this exstension. I've been using it for the last half hour or so and I'm very pleased. It really does make browsing /. here a more enjoyable experience.

I find some of the additions of the extension to be things that really should have be built into /. anyways, such as things that you find at Digg [digg.com] like AJAX comment retrieval - things that are not at all hard to implement that can dramatically increase the user experience. Nevertheless, I'm not really too surprised by /.'s apparent slowness in embracing new web technologies considering how long it took them to simply make this site fully standardized in CSS

One negative aspect of the extension, however, is that it seems to me that, depending on the feature set you have enabled, /. pages in general now take a bit longer to load, but not so long that it makes the plug-in not worthwhile, especially since it facilitates the speed of navigation in other ways.

All of you should check this out for sure!

Don't take this as a complaint - rather a matter of curiosity - why is the extension not compatible with the current nightlies? I find many useful extensions aren't and they're taking longer to update to be compatible with this release than others in the past. I presume it will be at some point, so why not now - is this a particularly nasty task?

I look forward to using the extension when it is.

First Post? (1)

Does it have a button to add an anonymous "first post" message to all the articles on the front page? It doesn't even need to look at the number of responses already posted. That seems to be one of the most common exercises done on slashdot.

Other features include automatic flogging of Authors for posting duplicates. I.Q. filter, so we won't see any of Zonk's posts. Oh, and bad grammar maker. Gotta have that.

Thank You (2, Interesting)

All of Slashdotter's features are optional, and the extension is compatible with Firefox, the Mozilla Suite, Seamonkey, and Flock.

As a Seamonkey user, I'm really sick of Firefox extensions that refuse to work because the author couldn't be bothered to check them properly, so thank you for taking the time.

Mmm OK... where's preferences page? (1)

Maybe I'm not seeing this because I added this as a site-wide addin but most plugins add a new entry under preferences dialo. Some (Adblock) add a menu item under tools instead.

I can't find preferences for slashdotter on SeaMonkey although the reply, [CC}, and collapse replies work fine.

Legitimate story? (1)

Seems hazy if an author should be allowed to submit a story to /. about his own project.

Yeah, we wouldn't want anyone knowledgeable about a subject starting threads.

cool :) props to you. I like it.

Don't install that! (1)

Even if this software its safe. Having the same extensions is a call for problems, because a tiny hole will exploit the monocultive..

I suggest most people avoid this extension, and use only if really needed.

Remenber kids: Javascripts can kill your dog. (and .XPI is XUL+javascript).

Thanks for the extension and thanks for making it work with SeaMonkey.

For very popular articles, it should offer a link to the coral cache of the mirrordot version!
