Greasemonkey goodness updates to fit the new bubble

As RB bestowed some loveliness upon us the other day (in the form of a significant makeover) some of my little RB ‘helper’ functions broke (or at least ‘warped’ a bit).

For those that don’t know – if you use Firefox to view RB, then one of the excellent addons available to make your life more fragrant is GreaseMonkey . This basically gives people like me to the power to manipulate what comes down to your browser. I user this power for good – not evil :)

So what can they do?

  1. Advanced Search
  2. CSV Work Stats export
  3. Link generator (RB-friendly format)

Advanced Search
Ever wanted to just ‘search’ on specific products in RB, or in forum posts? Currently you have to search… THEN filter your results by product. If you want to search in forums, you have to go there first then search. My little ‘advanced search’ gives you the options to search on all the things below from anywhere in RB.

Simple. Install (or update) the script here – or read the original journal entry .

CSV Work Stats Export
Want to download stats from your works? There’s no way currently to do this, so this script effectively trawls through the info on your works pages and collates it all into text you can throw into something like Excel for your own analysis.

Install (or update) the script here – or read the original journal entry for more info

Link Generator (RB-friendly format)
Want to be able to generate links to paste into RB from anywhere?
Install the script here – or read the original journal entry

All the scripts are available on UserScripts.org
