status-completed (used this fix in V1.2.9) Some people are experiencing a problem where the auto link does not appear. This has to do with the fact that the DOM elements on which the selector is based are dynamically loaded into the DOM. The workaround for this is to change line 683 to: setTimeout(function() { $('#' + divid).find('.comment-help-link')....

feature-request status-completed (GitHub issue) Can we have the auto link appear when completing a custom "off-topic" closure reason? Bonus points if we can declare certain auto-comments to apply in this scenario (e.g. mirroring the "A" and "Q" prefix for answers and questions). Perhaps "C" for closure reasons?

bug Clicking on the icon won't reveal the comment-box anymore. One has to click the "add comment" link, for the comment box to appear, then click on the script icon to add the reply signature into the revealed comment-box.

Ok, not a answer but some visuals how to get it going for dummies like me. Install Greasemonkey (for Firefox) or Tampermonkey (for Chrome) - I'm using Greasemonkey for this post, but it's the same for Tampermonkey -- you will get a new icon on the top right of your menu bar AFTER restarting Firefox. Install the Script: While you are still logged in to ...

Excellent script, much needed. I adjusted the following to make it work: changed live by $(document).on( 'keydown', 'textarea[name=comment]', function(e) {}) added metakey so it works on Macs (e.ctrlKey||e.metaKey) And other improvements: only runs when viewing a question or in the Review/Task pages. changed @include by @match using a format that catches ...

I forked the script to create some quick-insert buttons. Given how often I make use of this, I wanted to save the extra click.

Confirmed the bug on a post that accrues comments much slower than a typical Stack Overflow question does. Currently, the OP's filter returns "comment_count": 1 on that post. There are no comments. I believe this is a side-effect/bug/quirk with how the API appears to be counting the comments. ¿Perhaps it is counting Ids in the comment table and not ...

Excellent :) Bugs: Clicking show more comments hides the buttons next to your comments. status-completed 0 days? (I'm not sure what you want the behaviour of 0 days to be). It didn't remove the comment. status-norepro: Make sure you wait until the next o'clock after submitting 0, and make sure your access_token is up-to-date. Feature Requests: Hours, ...

Here is a GreaseMonkey script I threw together: // ==UserScript== // @name Old Comment Delete Button // @version 1.1.0 // @grant none // @author a stone arachnid // @include https://*stackoverflow.com/* // @include https://*superuser.com/* // @include https://*serverfault.com/* // @include https://*stackapps.com/* // @include https://*...

bug Links to StackExchange sites' meta posts don't seem to work. When I first hit Enter/click "Add Comment", the page doesn't do anything at all. The second hit forces a page reload, which is unexpected behavior. I'll post a comment below with these meta posts: meta.chem.SE meta.phy.SE meta.se

bug Unable to click on Comment. When i click on the icon then it doesn't show comment box.

I created another version of the script modifying: Shift + Enter submits the comment. Changed @includes for @matches using another domain pattern. Used another script injection technique. Tried to solve instances where the script would produce an error wrapping the block where the error occurs within a try{} catch(){}. Then I discovered that adding a ...

See "How do comment @replies work?" and "@Peter works for Péter Török?". Comment replies will often work with unicode. EG: Péter Török can be reached by both @Peter and @Péter. These are the documented rules (Not checked against latest source) for converting user display_name to comment-reply @names: Remove any spaces. Single quotes, dots, dashes and ...

I've made a userscript to do this. Get it at Github. It will add a button next to comments that belong to you after you have posted them (so not as you're writing). Clicking it will produce a prompt asking you for the number of days in which to delete the comment. Eg. entering 2 will delete it in exactly 2 days. It checks every o'clock for times that ...

Feature request: Moderator accounts can self-destruct any comment As a mod (on a smaller Stack) it's sometimes useful to let comments be right now, but you know they should be cleaned up soon. But you also know you're not going to be back here tomorrow, so you have to instead decide between no cleanup or instant cleanup. Being able to schedule others’ ...

This appears to be closely related to the bug: Why is comment_count=1 (incorrectly) when this particular filter is used?. The workaround from there -- altering the filter by: selecting comment.comment_id and selecting question.comments appears to work in this case too. (Although, in at least one instance, it seemed to need question_id as well. But this ...

I've made a couple of fixes to make this work again. While I don't fork and ask for a merge, here it is a copy of my script for convenience, the modifications are indicated with comments. The matches of sites has been revised as well. // ==UserScript== // @name stackoverflow-comment-reply // @namespace stackapps // @description Add "reply"...

feature-request Very nice comments thread. Could it be made to display threads 1 deep (like Stack Apps basically does), and maintain the chronological order of the original comments? For example (imagine dates where appropriate): I love it! One small request: can you please add a button to undo the rearrangement? Sometimes it's easier to see the comments ...

As posting setups was mentioned being useful, here is mine: ###[Q]App recommendation Please note that recommendations like *Is there an app for X* are off-topic here (see [What topics can I ask about here?](http://$SITEURL$/help/on-topic) for details). For where your question might fit better, you might want to look into [Where can I ask questions that aren'...

bug status-completed Here's a bug report. I've attempted to add the following comment: [**Please, don't use `mysql_*` functions in new code**](http://bit.ly/phpmsql). They are no longer maintained and the [deprecation process](http://j.mp/Rj2iVR) has begun on it. See the [**red box**](http://j.mp/Te9zIL)? Learn about [*prepared statements*](http://j.mp/...

It would be nice to have a place other than in these answers for us to share setups. Could you provide one and link it to the main post? I thought about posting another question to deal with this, but wasn't sure if it belonged in stackapps or meta.stackapps.

Update: As of api-v2.2, it's also possible to write questions and answers via the API. There are at least a few examples in use, of API 2.1 apps, that write comments. See: The Quick Media Solutions app The StackX Android app The SX.el Emacs app Re: Am I correct in thinking that only comments can be written and not questions? Yes, that's correct. ...

feature-request status-completed (v1.0.1): metadata referring to the post being commented on For example, $SITENAME: the name of the current site (ex. Stack Apps) $SITEURL: the URL of the current site (ex. stackapps.com) $USERNAME: the owner of the post being commented on

Can not make it working on Firefox. However, the stackexchange (my profile) shows the app installed under the "apps tab" However, there is still no " profile page at the top: click self-destruct access-token". When checking the app link: The SENotifier leads to http://hewgill.com/senotifier and it works. The Comment Self destruct leads to: https://...

I believe you should swap the order of replacing magicLinksCustomText and magicLinks in magicLink to allow for those of us who wish to have the option of using the same magic link for both syntaxes. I've tested, and it works fine that way, but not otherwise. Here's my current setup that necessitates this: magicLinks['edit/q Edit Question'] = '$BASEURL$/...

feature-request status-completed Should probably exclude chat so that it isn't running unnecessarily.

bug With the latest version, a couple recent comments have gotten mangled, leaving garbage text after the title + link. This may due to a recent change on the SO side (not the script) to allow %hex escapes in URLs instead of discarding strange characters. e.g. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60442321/what-does-%D0%A1-semaphoreslim-guarantee-is-it-full-...
