Thanks again! was working well, though..

Seems another update to the site has broken much of the functionality for me again today. Mini header still works but pretty much everything else seems like it doesnt.

must be frustrating to keep fixing :P take your time and I appreciate the hard work.

Edit* and the next morning it seems to be working perfectly again. either a temporary bug or very fast fix from you :)

2nd Edit* Now it's back to not working again, strange intermittent bug.

@johnsolo: not sure if you're aware but it's not been working for a couple days (possibly more). Like at all.

I just installed it for the first time and yeah, most of the features aren't working. In fact it seems like the only thing that's working for me is changing the header from Full to Small. Mini makes it disappear entirely and everything else just plain doesn't work.

Thanks guys :) I've uploaded a new version to the addon stores, they should be available in a few hours.

The issue was caused when there was no "Upcoming" section, which is why it would be intermittent.

Awesome addon my duder! The site looks so much better now that I can take off the huge ad for the store and the useless "Continue Watching" bar.

Would you be able to make "This Day in GB History" show up as a grid too? I just want the two giant grids on the homepage and I'd be set for life.

Also, while we're fixing the site, maybe a toggle to the old logo?

@johnsolo You're the hero the we needed!

Any chance you can make it have the old logo and old favicon? That would be awesome.

Thanks again for the update!

New issue :P
I noticed the latest (displayed as a grid) isn't showing the 2 latest video features. Yesterday it wasn't showing the super smash brothers quick look and today it's also missing the unprofessional Friday.
Yesterday I thought the bug may be caused by the missing video showing as the days header but today it's both new videos so that theory is shot :)

What were you guys seeing with the mini header? Right now it looks okay to me. I know it can get weird if the text is too long. Is that what you saw?

#74 Posted by johnsolo (49 posts) -

@tanstaafl: When you turn off the grid, do those missing videos re-appear? The extension doesn't really control or alter what is in the grid, it's just a css change to show the hidden carousel thumbnails.

Avatar image for danlongman
#75 Posted by danlongman (208 posts) -

@johnsolo: The mini header has been working for about a week, I think it was just the one video for some reason that made it disappear when they changed the highlighted video it returned. I can't remember what video it was now though. Thank you so much for this extension it makes GB so much better to use.

I'm not sure what your capabilities are with the extension but a recent update makes me at least want to ask.

The thumbnails that appear in the three promo strip are now removed from the Latest carousel. This makes the three promo strip a requirement to leave on, essentially. Is there a way for you to add an option to move the thumbnails from the promo strip into the Latest carousel?

I'm assuming you can't but I figure I'd ask anyways.

I think what happened was, there was no upcoming at the time and since the mini header includes upcoming, it just didn't show up at all until they added something to upcoming again.

As of this morning, "latest as grid" isn't working for me any more.

@nishastra: I see, it's not showing as a grid for me either, grr. They probably changed the site around. To be expected I guess. I'll take a look -- this is one of the main reasons I wrote the extension :)

Hey all, this is fixed now. The devs changed around the classes on some elements, so I had to update to match. New version should be available shortly!

Just installed it on my work PC (which is lower res than 1080, unfortunately) and I'm excited to get home to my proper monitor and futz around with it.

My one request, if this is still being worked on, would be a way to expand the Upcoming module across the length of the screen. I'm not a fan of the way "Mini" header looks, so a "Small" header with an expanded Upcoming bar (similar to the Live on GB Infinite bar) would be perfect.

Thanks for the great work! :)

Edit: Maybe I should tag @johnsolo

@johnsolo: can we get an option to toggle off "latest premium?"

Avatar image for johnsolo
#85 Posted by johnsolo (49 posts) -

hi gb fam

just noticed the "Latest Premium" section (thx @flashflood_29). I will get that added to the list of sections in the extension.

@the_nubster your idea may be a little difficult, I'll see what I can do. no promises.

Ok, I added a toggle for the Latest Premium section, the new versions should be published shortly!

Is there anyway to fix "Latest" missing videos? It seems like the stuff on the 3-promo strip on the regular website isn't shown in Latest and it doesn't have most Quick Looks for me or the latest Mailbag so I keep missing a huge amount of stuff.

@theadmin: Not too much... but I've just noticed they changed the header, so I might have to put some work into it again. It looks like the header feature broke, everything else seems fine?

Hey fam -

Just uploaded 0.3.0 which changes a few things.

- Since the new header is no longer obnoxiously large, and it broke my custom header css/js, I've removed that feature. The new header is a lot like the "Small" header from gbturbo. My apologies to anyone using the "Mini" header - with the new header design it's no longer feasible to shrink down to mini size and fit the upcoming shows.

- I removed the Three Promo Strip and Popular toggles, as it appears they removed those sections from the homepage.

New version should be in the Chrome/Firefox extension galleries shortly.

Thanks!

So, I was going to search for VinnyVania, because I haven't seen all of those yet... and I was annoyed with how you have to click the little magnifying glass icon to bring up search.

So I added a new feature to move the search module onto the homepage! I think it makes it much easier to search, or in tech industry mumbo jumbo "surface an under-utilized feature to increase engagement". The new version should be available shortly. Enable the feature in the options popover. Thanks!

So, I understand some redesign broke your header fix. But currently this is what the homepage looks for me. I'm guessing it's because I'm running at 150% DPI (on a TV in my living room), but this is driving me nuts. Your fix to reduce the header size used to work. If it's still impossible to reduce the size, might it be possible to just get rid of the entire header?

Avatar image for johnsolo
#98 Posted by johnsolo (49 posts) -

Arg, they changed the way the "Latest" carousel works, so it only shows a few episodes before you have to click "Show More", so now the "show latest as grid" just looks like this, only showing 6 episodes:

Seriously considering pulling the extension, it had a good run but with the header changes and now this, it's kinda pointless. All this extension could do now is hide certain homepage modules... thoughts?

@johnsolo: you already did a lot to help long time site users continue to enjoy browsing GB during this transition period and I don’t think anyone would fault you for calling it quits.

Well, what I've done is remove the features that broke, so the extension only lets you re-order/hide homepage modules now. Might still be useful, but I'm kinda bummed out because I really liked the grid view (which is why I wrote this in the first place heh).
