JournalCollect V2.00 by alarie-tano JournalCollect V2.00 by alarie-tano
Version 2.00
Some changes have been made:

  • The standart JournalCollect Category that couldn't be removed before doesn't exist anymore

  • Counting works now in all categories

  • Category names may contain spaces now



Please report all bugs.


Previous Versions

Version 1.02
The script now works with the new version of deviantART as well.
Version 1.01
The script works now with literature, too.


Requirements:
You'll need GreaseMonkey to make this script work.

Description:
You are viewing a deviation and think "Wow I have to feature that in my next journal", so you save the thumb-code or the link to a text file or somewhere else.
OK, but here is a faster way: Use JournalCollect. With just a button-click you can save the thumb-code directly to the Firefox settings (about:config). Then in your "Update Journal" area you can just with a view clicks add all the thumbnails you saved to the Journal Entry box.

What it does:
The script adds some buttons to every deviation page.
Collect Buttons: The buttons right behind the artist's name add or remove the deviation you are viewing to your Collection
Settings Button: Allows you to add/remove categories or to clear the content.
insert Thumbs: Opens a dialog where you can chose which thumbs you want to insert in the Journal Entry box.

How to install:
Before you can install this script you need GreaseMonkey (see above).
If you have GreaseMonkey and it's activated just drag and drop the script from the location you saved it on your HD into the firefox window.
Now either you get a notification window from firefox asking if you really want to install this script, wait till the countdown is over and click OK. If you now visit a Deviants page for example you should see the script's effect.
If you don't get that notification window, but just a page with a lot of source code just hit the reload button, then the notification window should appear as well.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have trouble installing it.
(Be aware this script is still a beta, I use it for quite some time already and didn't have any bigger problems, but I can't guarantee that everything will work correctly)

Does this still work? I'm trying to install it, and I'm not sure how to exactly. So download, then drag and drop?

No sadly it does not. Just keeping it online so people can get the code and make it work. Sadly no time to do that myself.

I really want this, but I;m a noob and I have no idea why it's not working.

1. I download it to my desktop and the file name is 'Journal Collect by...etc, etc. It's a JScript Script file apparently

2. I HAVE Greasemonkey installed

3. What do you mean by "just drag and drop the script from the location you saved it on your HD into the firefox window."?
Should I drop it ANYWHERE in the open browser?

3. When I do that I get a lot of script on the page [like you said]. I press 'refresh' the page and it just stays there. Nothing happens.


And quick question, when I am supposed to download the script, do I need to delete the first few lines or anything? They're just names etc.

What do I do? :) Help.

You're doing all right, you just forgot to rename the file :).
it has to end with ".user.js". (for example "JournalCollect.user.js", and because this came up recently: user does NOT stand for your username, but has to be "user")
Then it should work. If not, let me know.

TheFulkrum Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
Yeah I read about the .user. thing in one of the other comments. So I foolowed that rule.

The downloaded file name had underscores between words. Your suggestion here doesn't. So I renamed the file to the "JournalCollect.user.js". Then I tried it and the same thing happened.

Got a page with the entire script; no automatic load box, and reload/refresh the page doesn't do anything.

I don't know how to use Greasmonkey too well, but strangely enough, when I right click on the greasemonkey icon and click on Manage User Scripts, 'Journal Collect' IS in the left column. But there isn't much I can do with it.

Sorry to bug you about this. It's just that I DO update my journal often and this would be perfect. Any ideas or hope? :)

Hmm, weird.
Try to delete the script again (Right-click the Greasemonkey icon, select manage scripts, select the JournalCollect script and hit uninstall)
Then make sure Gresemonkey is running (the icon is colored then) and try to drag the downloaded and renamed JavaScript file again (anywhere into the Firefo window).

Don't worry, keep me posted if it doesn't work. :)

No can do brother. I'm so sorry to take up your time. And I appreciate you actually writing back[rare].

No, same thing. I believe I have FF3.5. Could that be an issue?

In the Greasemonkey box, there's an ADD button on the right. If I click it, a box opens up and asks for a URL......Could I do something there?

That's about all the information I have for you.

Oh if I click onyour file, the one I download, Adobe Dreamweaver opens it up. Then I start laughing! :lol:

:iconalarie-tano:
alarie-tano Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
Really weird!
Shouldn't be a Firefox prob as I am using the same version.
The add button is not important for us, though in the upper box there should already be 3 entries.

That dreamweaver opens it is no wonder, as it's a standart JavaScript file. You shouldn't delete the names and stuff at the top, as it's needed fot the script meta data.

What do you see when you took at a deviation in the bar where the deviation title is? Is there a button as well?

:iconthefulkrum:
TheFulkrum Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
Nope my friend. Not a thing. :(

In the Greasemonkey thing, there's a New User Script button and when I click it a box opens up. I'm sure you know of them but there are 5 'boxes' within that one:

1.Name: empty

2.Namespace: empty

3.Description: empty

4.Includes(One per line): THIS area has http:// deviantart.com/messages/ in it [minus the space]

5.Excludes(One per line)


:shrug: Don't know if that helps Oh, in answer to your question, no, I don't see anything but the usual layout.

Hmm really weird. I tried again and downloaded the file, renamed it and dragged it into Firefox and the auto-install box pops up.

But you said that you had it already in the "Manage scripts" window. So it seems the installation did work. Another thing could be that just the script is not active. To check this right-click on the Greasemonkey icon and check if there is an is a check mark infront of JournalCollect.

Otherwise I have really no idea what it could be, sorry :S

The mistake is in #2:
It has to be [link]. (user does NOT stand for your username, but is really just "user") :)

Hope that solves the prob, if not, feel free to write again :)

This is a great idea, but now with the new Journal pages, the "settings" button appears only in the "edit past journal entries" page, and not on the "new journal entry" one. :|

Yes it was version 2.0, I had just downloaded it.

Well, this is funny, I just reinstalled the script, and now the "insert thumbs" button appeared. Not the "settings" one on the "new journal entry" page, but that's not a problem. I can use it fine just as it is. Maybe there is some problem with one of the other scripts I run with Greasemonkey.


Thanks! :)

Oh that's actually true, I deleted the settings button from the Journal pages. I might put it back there some time. Sadly there is no possibility to watch a deviation for updates. Make me think about implementing an update system in the script... I'll see. Just check the deviation page regularly :)

Ooohh I see. The setting button in the journal pages is not essential, indeed. An update system in the script would be great for those of us who could forget even their name, like me! :XD: But I'll try to remember to check. :D

Hey man, this script looks amazing! But i am having trouble installing it. I get the script, and before you blow a guy answering this question for the 100th time, I did save it as a .js and drag it into my firefox, but when I drag it, it opens the script again :p

Please help! This thing looks so fun and useful

Hey, did you make sure you saved it as "*.user.js". The "user" is IMPORTANT. And you need greasemonkey of course. Please write again if that didn't solve the problem.

Hello I wonder if you could help me. What am I exactly supposed to drag to the firefox window? I also tried hitting download but the script just appeared. I refreshed page but that was it, the script was still there. And, of course, I have Greasemonkey and it's activated.

Try downloading again, if you get only the script again, then chose "File->Save As" and save the page. Make sure your filename is "JournalCollect.user.js". Now open the folder on your hard disk drive where you saved the script in Explorer and from there drag it into the browser window. Hope that helps, if not feel free to get back to me.
