    Another sign that something has gone screwy with the font set is that in the text in your post, the 'TM' appears as 'â„¢'.

    On second thoughts, try closing your browser and starting it again - or, better still, the classic of switching your computer off and back on again. That might reset the font sets in your browser.

    I have seen the same. Never sure what causes it... but some googling reveals that the problem is not limited to these pages... and, if I have time, I may investigate further (but I am a bit busy right now)

    Can you:
    - confirm that you're seeing it in the text of the page (as it arrives from the beeb) rather than in any posterId alias-texts you may have configured
    - confirm that you see it in the body of a post and not just in a poster's name
    - if you can, point me to a page where you see this now (or when you next see it)
    -- also, if you do find a page that shows this:
    --- just confirm that it isn't the script causing it - by disabling Greasemonkey and refreshing the page (don't forget to re-enable Greasemonkey afterwards)
    --- also try refreshing the page several times to see if the problem comes and goes (I'm thinking that if it does come and go, it might be because different servers are configured differently)

    TIA

    (Thanks too to others for suggestions)

    It's mostly in names eg yours and wordlovers ( just tried to do a search and of course failed to find other than the odd one scattered in others posts.

    I have tried disableing Greasemonkey and refreshing to no avail.

    I will try quitting Firefox and coming back to see if that helps. I mustardmitt that I just let the lapdog go to sleep mostly, and rarely restart. SFAnneâ„¢

    Does that mean you are seeing the symptom here, in this thread, right now?

    If not...


    Just one will, do. If you are seeing it right now, then please point me at it.



    A better idea - if you can see the symptom that is - is to play around with the lower options in [View]-->Character Encoding-->... to see if it makes a difference. If it does then maybe we can consider changing the default character encoding in the firefox options.

    Mon, 30 Nov 2009 18:24 GMT, in reply to studioj



    Yes, I spotted that on copying and checked; Turns out also had ) instead of > as the final character. However it is still the only alias which appears in full colour on the Who's Online page.

    Later last night I had another look, loaded the WO page, selected Order by ID and got a mixture of colours and not-colours, as with Order by Name. If there is a reason for the anomaly, I can't see any pairs of criteria - e.g. when X is displayed online, all the aliases go funny.

    {It is here, just after "confused". Sentence inserted by SFA}

    Not surprised you got confused!&#65533smiley - winkeye You did once point out to me that I had stray characters. To me they aren't stray characters they are part of the design, thus >&ensp>Dragonfly<&ensp< displays as >Dragonfly< with wings. But as an example of the computer reading embellishments as code it doesn't fly [groan] becuase for years it displayed in full colour on Who's online, and so did everything else.

    Next time time I'm sufficiently bored, I'll look at my saddo's Word file of saved alias codes and play at Darwin look for copying errors and mutations. Let you know if I ever find the missing link.

    Cheers and a Grolsch.

    I can see the same (on the Mac) if I switch the Character Encoding from "Western (ISO-8859-1) (which is what mine was on originally) to "Unicode (UTF-8)"

    and if I switch it back it's ok again (sometimes may need a refresh).

    Have a play with the Character Encoding options... if you haven't lost it already, please make a note of what it was/is set to originally (before you change it).

    Well.. there you go.

    No idea why it's incorrect for you when using ISO-8859-1 and it's fine for me when using that encoding. Maybe there's some other setting(s) on the specific machines (locale?) that make a difference... but as I'm no mac expert.. I've no idea.

    Also no idea if it will remember this setting for you.

    One can also set the default character encoding via [Firefox]-->Preferences... [Content-tab], [Advanced-button](the one to the right of "Default font")

    but, if I'm honest, I don't really know what consequences there may be of changing that preference.

    SFA, this isn't getting at you, but your problem last night has highlighted something that it's worth addressing. I'm glad that jont was able to help you resolve your problem.

    This thread is for users of the Script to get the most out of the Script by sharing ideas, tips, etc, and also discussing any problems there might be with the Script. It's not a general tech help thread.

    If anyone who uses the Script is having a problem they think might be related to the Script, then please, before posting about it here, discern that it is (most likely) related to the Script itself and not some other setting on your computer. The easiest way to do that, as jont pointed out, is to turn off Greasemonkey (by clicking on the monkey face at the right of the bottom bar of your browser so that he goes grey and sad), refreshing the page and testing for the problem again. If the problem persists, it is /not/ related to the Script, as the Script is now not operating on that page. In that case, please, if you need help with it, start a separate thread, or tag on to one of the other tech help threads in the Bull or elsewhere.

    If the problem has resolved itself after turning off Greasemonkey, click on the monkey face again to turn it back on, then refresh the page again and see if the problem is still there. If it's gone, fine; if it's still there, it's likely to be a problem related to Greasemonkey and might be related to Script use. In which case, it would be appropriate to log it here.

    I hope that seems acceptable to everyone. I'm just wary of Script ideas and help getting lost among other general tech stuff in future on what is supposed to be a thread about the Script.

    I seem to have lost the Script's wonderful 'catch-up' links on my discussions page. This is the first time I've signed in with the new BBC iD sign-in system, so I wonder whether the two are connected. There are new page elements above the discussions list, which perhaps affect the operation of the Script.

    Does everyone else still have the catch-up links? (Catch-up is still ticked in the config panel.) I rely on these, so would like them back. Mind you, I was thinking of giving ML a rest anyway, so perhaps this is the encouragement I needed to do so.

    I just logged in(*) to test it and it seems to work ok for me, Badger.

    * oddly:
    - the "login" process seemed to want me to just press a button to agree to house rules and then I was logged in (without entering any details)
    -- maybe this was the first "login" after registration completion / or conversion to the new system.

    - also, after that "login" process, I was returned to the /beginning/ of the thread that I pressed the login button on, rather than the page that I was actually on. Never noticed that before.

    Thanks for your reply. When I logged in, I don't think I was returned to this board at all.

    Do you have a new, white bar, under the black Script bar, containing the BBC iD logo (a white 'pawn' in a blue circle) and then the following text: 'jont | Settings | Sign Out Your discussions'?

    If so can the catch-up links in the threads are working on your machine, I'll try logging out and back in again.

    Blah blah blah wibble wibble pong.

    Is that any clearer? Sorry about that. I meant, were the 'catch up' links inserted by the Script on each thread in your discussions list still there.

    Anyway, I've worked out what the problem was, although not why it happened. For some reason, and probably during the transition from the sign-in page back to my discussions page, the ? and & signs in the URL had been changed to numerical identifiers, so that the last part of my discussions page URL appeared as

    MP3587940%3Fshow=25%26skip=0

    I've corrected this manually, and tried a couple of page navigations, and all seems to have reverted to normal. Sorry for bringing up what actually wasn't a Script problem on this thread.

    When I logged in on Tuesday I had the script, but it didn't have the catch up feature. I went to the script page and installed it again and then it worked perfectly.

    JustJoggingJanie, sorry, but I have catpeed your post with the following complaint:

    <<<
    I believe this post contains a link to an external website which breaks our editorial guidelines for the following reason:

    it points directly to a javascript program (I maintain this program but it must not be linked to directly from anywhere except the program's site ( studioj-scripts.apps... ) and to link directly can cause confusion (and maybe a security alert for the user) - it also requires a specific plugin to be of any use
    >>>

    You no doubt weren't to know, but in future please refrain from posting a link directly to the script itself - it can cause confusion and possible problems for anyone who successfully installs from the given link. I expect it /will/ work but - for technical reasons - it might make support and/or any subsequent migration more difficult in the future. Apart from that, I do think that the script should only be linked from the script's site because that is where all the instructions and descriptions are. TIA.

    Please don't take this personally!

    Yes, many thanks, Jont, everything is fine. Sorry 'bout that. I knew the rule, just forgot that link started the script up.

    My favourite part of the script is the 'catch up' feature. My second favourite is that you can assign colours and notes to posters. That way you can recognize the ones you like and the ones you ... don't quite so much. I have a special sludge green for the - thankfully very few - under-bridge dwellers.

    My broadband went down as I was typing the message below. Here it is, late but I think still relevant.

    -----------------------------

    I think, Janie, it's simply because of what I said in my previous post [message 81]: that after signing in, when the BBC iD page automatically redirects you to your discussions list, it replaces the ? and & characters in the URL with numeric equivalents, which confuses the Script. If you have your discussions page saved in your bookmarks, you can just click on that to reload it and all should be well. There shouldn't be any need to reinstall the Script.

    If you have any problems like this again, check the URL bar and if there are characters such as #3F, you'll need to reload from a source you have saved or otherwise replace them with the relevant ? and & characters (usually the first of these in the URL should be ?, the following ones &ampsmiley - winkeye.

    Hebe, I've just this minute received the following via the greasemonkey-user's mailing-list:

    <<<
    There is a bug in last greasemonkey (the one of 8 dec) so that lot of
    scripts are not working any more, in particular when saving settings.
    You can go to https://addons.mozi...
    and downgrade to version of September 2009. You can install it over
    the new version, it updates normally.
    >>>

    (Note: I'm not suggesting that you should immediately downgrade as specified in that text, but instead to verify whether there is a problem (for script users) or not).

    I assume that you have just very recently done the Firefox install (hence you are using 3.5.6, well done for volunteering to test the script on that!) and Greasemonkey.

    If so, may I bother you with a couple of things?

    Can you verify that the "saving settings" works ok... change something in the [Config], save it, exit the browser completely, come back in and check that the settings were saved. Ditto for a posterId-alias.

    Also, tell me which version of Greasemonkey you installed? (Firefox: [Tools]-->Add-Ons)

    TIA.

    And, in case I don't see you in the meantime, many happy returns for tomorrow.

    I've successfully turned debogroll off, and you now have your name in italics where your number should be (and have a little label saying script supremo when I hover over it). I logged completely out of firefox and back in and it all seems to have saved fine.

    greasemonkey is 0.8.20091209.4b - I followed your instructions to install the most recent one (see I did read them first!)

    Slightly alarmed that I'm testing 3.5.6 for us all - you know I'm usually a very late adopter.....

    And thank you for the best wishes for tomorrow, I'm celebrating with the day off work - waiting for the plumber to hopefully sort out my hot water issues (which if successful will make it a very good birthday).

    Thank you very much for confirming things are working ok (and thanks too for bothering to read the instructions!)

    Hope all goes smoothly tomorrow and you get things sorted (and you're not too cold).

    Again, thanks and best wishes.

    I just wanted to say that I've at last had some time to read this thread properly, and it's been incredibly useful. So thank you to jont and Achilles for the marvellous script, and thanks to all for the tips and hints. I feel as though I've been underusing the script woefully up until now!

    So, absolute favourite: setting up my page to show 200 threads and using the classify threads facility. This means threads that I never read, eg early threads or football or similar, can by assigned to my rubbish bin and I can't see them (instead of them cluttering up my page like old turkey legs in the fridge). Ditto threads that have really annoyed me can be out of sight, out of mind.

    Unsubscribe-o-matic - so quick and easy

    Posterid - I use this as a warning to myself that if I read or interact with certain posters I'm a numpty and deserve everything I get.

    So, once again thank you so much for the script - it's such a boon.

    Quick question: I am running Firefox 3.03 - is it okay to update to the latest version & will it work with the script as is?

    Yes. I've been running 3.5.7 for a few months now, with no problems. (I'm on a Mac, but I believe that Script users running Windows have also had no problems.

    This is what I emailed Tayler the other day (now slightly expanded)- she's passed it on to the tech team who have said it /might/ be script-related.


    "I can sign in and out of the MB OK but a week or so ago I noticed part of the page content at the top had disappeared. There's a grey band across the top with the BBC search box in the middle, then a space about 1 1/4 ins./3 cm. deep, then my name - flo Settings, Sign Out Your discussions

    under that You are here.


    It surely used to say more than that at the top, and the pic of fluffy clouds has gone.

    Here's a more important bit:

    More to the point I have belatedly realised that if I turn The Script off, I have no "reply to this message" option, nor "start a discussion" option.

    There is no preview option either after I've composed a message.

    Also the Start a discussion option has gone (when using the script.) As has the preview option. I'm using Firefox. If you can help I'd be very pleased."

    Does this sound similar to anyone else's experience, and if so, any tips?

    Script installed about 3 months ago, above problems arrived 2-4 weeks ago.

    Flo, I have had no problems using the script - I generally use Opera but having upgraded Firefox on this pooter, no problems there either.

    Thanks - haven't read of anything similar so far (but there might be people who can no longer log in at all, I suppose.)

    Flo, I don't think it's a problem with the Script as such. It' probably worth your while waiting until Jont turns up, for a more educated answer, but in case some problem has occurred in your copy of the Script (or Greasemonkey, which runs it), you could try the following:

    Uninstall your copy of the Script:
    Tools -> Greasemonkey -> Manage User Scripts.
    Then select BBC_DNA_MB_AllInOne and click the Uninstall button.

    Uninstall Greasemonkey:
    Tool -> Add-ons
    Select Greasemonkey and click the Uninstall button.

    Then restart Firefox and reinstall them both according to the instructions on Jont's page: studioj-scripts.apps...

    If this doesn't work, you could try reinstalling Firefox itself. It could also be that one of your Firefox preferences has become corrupted. These aren't Script issues, so it might then be worth asking in the Bull rather than here if you need further help.

    Hope something above works, although it's probably a long shot.
    'Ö'

    Hey ho. I uninstalled the Script, then uninstalled Greasemonkey.

    Result: page with no options to start a discussion or to post to an existing one.(i.e. same result as diabling the script.)

    Was still able to sign in and out though. (wry expression.)

    Haven't tried uninstalling Firefox yet, and will now go and try using IE.
