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.

You'll need GreaseMonkey to make this script work.

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?
alarie-tano Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
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.

It's wonderful and even though it doesn't work, nicely done in making it! :love:

I tried installing this, i got a page of source code, reloaded it, but i'm still not getting any installing options?

I think it is broke with the changes on dA. I am not taking it off yet, because i might do a new version if i find the time to do so.

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? :)
