@ALL

I realized I forgot to add a way to preview Newspaper Articles. I will correct that in the next release. :)

I picked a color that is aesthetically pleasing on both light and dark themes. ;)


Is there any way you can make the color customizable? I like the idea, just not the color.

Won't work? Make sure once you add the editor , you save your changes. Even I forget to do that...

Using up-to-date Firefox, if it's of relevance.

As nifty an idea as it is, the highlighted first post thing isn't working properly. If I go to the latest unread post in a thread and that post is not on the first page, then the post at the top of the page becomes highlighted, as do all of the other posts by that user on that page. I don't think that posts by the OP are highlighted on that page, but I haven't checked for certain. This doesn't happen if I simply go to the page not using the unread feature.

Give me a link to a thread this happens on.

Any; I'll take TET as an example, since there's always new posts. This is the unread link. For me, it goes to page 416, and all posts on that page by Aeken are highlighted.

Maybe off-topic.

Afforess, You made switch incredibly faster. *Salute*

Confirmed on chrome. Clicking on the view newest post button, the first post on the page will be highlighted green.

I'm not entirely sure how the extension decides which is the first post, but I've got a feeling it's still broken. It's hard to reproduce perfectly, but if you go to a thread that you haven't read yet, and start in the middle of the thread, the extension can't tell who the OP is, and highlights the first post on the page.

Unless this is the problem Tsuntion was reporting, and you haven't fixed it yet, in which case I'll shut up and let you get on with that.

If that still does not work, and I am going to assume it does not, I am pulling down my debug server logs to investigate what is going on.


It works. :)


I still can't post articles though.

Afforess, I have a quote for you.

"The only products for NS I use are made by Afforess; After all, he already has my password."

Well, I still don't see Newspaper controls there and the manage page link you have shown me doesn't have the option of putting articles.

You can submit articles here: http://www.nationstates.net/page=blank/ ... article=-1

But can you screenshot this page for me? http://www.nationstates.net/page=blank? ... spaper=217

You should be able to see newspaper controls...

Concur, very pleasant with the Dark theme!

Also, I definitely appreciate the preview feature, very helpful when experimenting with BBCode

There should be a button to submit articles on your main newspaper area.

Go to your Safari preferences and make sure extension auto-updates are enabled. Sounds like you are on an old version.
