De-clutter ride reports and other threads (Google Chrome extension)

I had used tbolt's excellent De-crufter for Firefox for quite a while back before I discovered Google Chrome. For those of you who are now using Chrome (like myself), I have an extension with similar functionality.

Like the De-crufter, once you visit the first page of a thread, the OP will be remembered (even if you close the browser and open it again later, if you don't clear your browsing data). Posts that you post to a thread won't be hidden with the clutter if you're logged in. In addition, the clutter show/hide setting is saved on a per-thread basis.

I added an entry in the Thread Tools menu to show/hide clutter as demonstrated below.


(cRAsH theme shown above, this should work with most of the themes just fine, excluding ADVrider 2.0)

For the interested, the source code is viewable here. Feel free to make your own version if you'd like—with a few tweaks, it should work reasonably well on almost any vBulletin-powered site.

Thanks for that. Inane junk responses are the one thing that keeps me out of RR.

Excellent extension, James Adams. It works perfectly.

I really like it that you show the authors of the hidden posts. Easy to pick and choose which replies to read.

Thanks! Sometimes you can see that the OP replied to someone's post, but they didn't quote the whole thing. This makes it easy to go back and read that specific post.

That could be crippling, depending on the thread (thinking of some of the Ride Reports, in particular).

Maybe something that pushed the number of posts loaded out, but didnt' grab the whole thing?

It could do it asynchronously in the background (initiated by a button click or something) while you're still working on the first page, adding posts to the end of the page as they're loaded.

At least that's how it works in my head.

This has been implemented now. The extension will preload (in the background) the next three pages of whatever thread and page you're on.

Is this extension currently working? I just added it and clicking Hide or Show doesn't do anything. I have Win7_64 and the current Chrome. I closed and reopened Chrome.

I love the idea, just no go at the moment. Or so it appears.

Thanks.

Hi Phil,

Which ADVrider theme are you using? Right now, this doesn't work with the "ADVrider 2.0" theme, even though it still shows the menu option. I use the cRAsH theme but it should work with the others (besides 2.0), too.

I've edited the first post to reflect this.

JA, it seems that since you added the preload feature, the "Hide" setting is not working for the whole thread. I can select Hide on the first page, and it works for that page, but not for the following pages unless I select Hide again.

Any ideas? Win XP and cRAsH theme.

Otherwise I like the preload function. Works nicely on photo-heavy threads.

Thanks

It's quite possible that I broke it. I'll take a look.

It's fixed now, as of version 1.16.

Thanks for the heads-up!
