Firefox / IE extensions you use to help view LDS sites ?

Postby atticusewig » Tue Feb 20, 2007 1:31 pm

Just thought I'd ask what Firefox or Internet
Explorer extensions, plugins, etc. people use
when visiting any of the LDS sites ?

There are so many of them that it would be
nice to hear which church members consider
best.

Also, has anyone put together any "Greasemonkey"
scripts for any of the LDS sites ?

Here are Firefox search plugins for searching the Church's sites, the Scriptures, or the 3rd party search engine ldssearch.com:

Scott,

I opened up your Greasemonkey script and saw the long XPath query you have. As a suggestion (I don't know if it would be better with it or not) the newest version of prototype.js (1.5.1) has some very cool node traversal functions. I have been using them here at work. Namely:

$(element).down()
$(element).up()
$(element).childElements()
$(element).previous()
$(element).next()

You can find out more about the prototype.js API documentation here: http://prototypejs.org/api/element

Also, I found this site that shows you how to inject prototype.js into your Greasemonkey scripts.

http://jimbojw.com/wiki/index.php?title=Injecting_Scriptaculous_via_Greasemonkey

I would do this for you, but I am in a time crunch at work and can't spend the time to debug, etc.

I built one for IE. It's actually in another thread too.

Here is the link: http://www.ldsassistant.com

I should have an update for FireFox shortly too.

Let me know if you have any questions or can think of any enhancements.

There are quite a few people using it.

I had great difficulty attempting to use the node traversal methods after injecting prototype.js. I kept getting method does not exist errors. I tried various ways of getting a reference to an extended Element but none that worked with all the necessary node traversal functions.

For my enhancements I ended up with this instead:

Adds the link insertion functionality to the photo print version of the directory.

Be sure to turn off the Spicy Ward Web script that has my photoprint mods in it.
