[F5] Board Refreshing (12)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2008-06-04 07:44 ID:l6PoL1l6

Everytime if I click F5 to refresh an particular board it refreshes the entire 4-ch page and I get directed to the main site.
Could that be changed, it would be more comfortable.

(I also realized if I open ONLY the board on a different tab, it works if I refresh it, however, if I have that siteboard on the left listing all the boards, it doesnt.)

I whish a collapsible or small global board menu could be added on the boards for this reason among others. I only visit a few boards by typing the url directly to avoid frames, and I think most of us do this. I'd go more often on low-activity boards if they were linked.

It's something I've wanted to implement, but, it's a bit tricky to implement, and I'm caught up these days with work and stuff.

if you want to refresh the board, just click the board name.

Two solutions:
1) An optional second site design that doesn't use frames;
2) Browse only the iframe (right click -> show only this frame)
I can't think of something else.

It should be easy to make a client-side greasemonkey collapsible menu. Keeps the boards clean and solves the problem for the few of us who care.
If some people want it and the mods don't mind I can code this fast.

sounds like a nice idea, write it, make a post about it at /code/ and maybe Squeeks will make it "official". I know I'll use it.

I've been apprehensive to make something like that for a couple of reasons:

1) If I was going to do so, whilst I was at it I'd restyle the entire looks of the boards and back end and whatever
2) I'm lazy and busy at the same time
3) I don't think I could make something like that and make it with degradable Javascript and work on the majority of browsers without pulling my hair out in the process.

But by all means, make a greasemonkey script or something. If it works I'll support it.

Well, it's done. All the relevant links are in http://4-ch.net/code/kareha.pl/1213052148/
I'll leave it up to you whether you want to make this thing semi-official or whatever.
It depends on the outerbox and innerbox CSS classes having a style to display correctly, but beyond that there's really nothing to support.
I've stuck it in the top right corner since there's never anything crucial there.
It needs to be updated when new boards are added. I'm a regular here, so I'll probably post updates fast, and adding boards is documented in the script anyway.

What's this exactly??
Does it refresh the right Frame with the board only?

click a board, and then right click and select "browse this frame only".
Then you'll be able to refresh the board with F5 and also have a menu to browse other boards.
