RE: "Yahoo: Auto Login" filter
appy,

Sorry for the delay, I've been messing around with another computer lately, and that one doesn't have my bookmarks (yet). Sad

You do wanna keep the single quote marks around the username and passwd values...... that signifies to the browser another level of quoting, the higher level being the double quote marks after the equals sign for the onLoad statement. More often than not, the rule for HTML is, each equals sign gets a set of quote marks, and they can be stacked (or nested), if you switch back and forth between the two kinds of quotes, single and double. Wink

When you say "it doesn't work", that's not very much to go on, in the way of helping you. I'll assume (for now) that you mean 'the filter doesn't ever fire at all'.

Since you integrated it into Sidki's set, I can't give you a definitive answer about conflicts, I don't use his config. I've seen it in action, and a long time ago, I dissected it pretty thoroughly (at his request, looking for bugs), but it's always been more than I needed. I'm from the old school, K.I.S.S., hence my own config, tailored to the sites I visit, and not much else.

One of the best ways to troubleshoot filters is to simply use them alone (or as a small set, like the three I gave you). Since I used Scott's default set as my basis, and continue to do so, I don't think there'd be any problem with adding the Magic-3 to the default set, just to give you a moderate level of filtering while browsing Yahoo. But this is the only way you can really figure out what's going on - is it the filter, or is it the fact that they're integrated into a foreign environment?

If it's the latter, you might check to see if other filters that look at the <body....> tag are set to Multi = TRUE. There is a LOT of garbage between that tag and the words 'Sign In', your current filters might be matching on some of them, and if Multi were set to FALSE, that would probably make my filter inoperable.

To check what's going on here, your first line of attack is the Log Window. Turn that on (using the system tray icon, right click), and watch what happens as the page loads. If it's too fast (very likely), don't worry - you can copy all of it to the clipboard with Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, then paste it into your favorite editor for easier perusal.

The next tool in your arsenal, and my personal favorite, is the dbug.. feature. After the double slashes in the address bar, and before anything else, insert the dbug.. without any spaces around it. Hit the Enter key. That will tell your browser to display all the code it received, with the filters that matched shown in red, a fast way to see what happened. Much better than "view source", which only shows you the results of any filtering action. The deal here is, you can see in what order the filters fired, giving you a clue about what filter acted on something before your intended filter had a chance.

Oh, and you did build a list for the third filter, right? D'oh!

Hope this was clear. LiarWhistling Let us know what happened.

p.s. I see, upon closer inspection, that your third filter has Match mispelled - the "h" is missing. That'd throw everything in a cocked hat! Banging Head

I'm no longer in the rat race - the rats won't have me!
