    How do i use Firefox greasemonkey script for Windows Secrets?

    How do i use Firefox greasemonkey script for Windows Secrets? I followed instructions on loading greasemonkey and a particular script. I'm not sure what clicks to make where to use FF greasemonkey script here in Windows Secrets. I think it was a script to find all new posts.

    Roland,

    If you have GreaseMonkey installed head here and click the Install button.

    Roland,

    It should start automatically when you log in to WSL.

    Isn't it just as easy to click on New Posts at the top of the page?

    Apparently, the greasemonkey's script for WS new posts is not automatically activating.
    Like Finding Nemo...at the end...Now, what?

    Roland,

    When you click on the dropdown arrow to the right of the GreaseMonkey icon do you see this?

    Roland,

    Make sure Enabled is Checked (it's not in my example above) and that the WSL New Forum Posts List is checked as shown above.

    You should then see the screen in Post #4 the next time you login to WSL or do a refresh. Note that screen will only show on the main forum list and clicking on an item in the list will open that forum in a new tab. HTH

    I don't see the screen you want me to see. The checkmarks are where you said they should be. I simply do not see the new posts screen

    I tried Greasemomkey and didn't like it. As Jerry says, why not use the New posts tag?

    Access & Jerry,

    FYI: What I personally like about the NPFL script is that I can edit the list of forums that I see and it tells me by color code (yellow = New posts, green = I'm last poster) what's going on. I just find it much easier than scrolling the list and wading through forums I don't frequent.

    YMMV!

    I just use the new posts link and when it shows a post in a Forum I don't usually follow, I click on the Forum link in the entry, Then Forum Tools > Mark this Forum read to get rid of the others. Then I go back to New Posts. I occasionally find a message of interest in a Forum I don't usually frequent this way also. But we all have our ways of viewing things. There's no one right or wrong way.
