Posted:I'm only interested because I mostly read posts in my email, then click the link in the email if I want to reply. The only problem with that is that it displays in threaded mode, and I have to change the bit in the address bar that says 'showthreaded.php' to 'showflat.php'. The button to display in flat mode is just as annoying, because it gos back to the first post in the thread.

Perhaps I should just shut up and write a filter for my mail that changes threadeds to flats.

The existance of flamethrowers says that someone, somewhere, at sometime said "I need to set that thing on fire, but it's too far away."

Posted:I think threaded only works if everyone uses it when they reply to people, hence why I use flat

Posted:Ive also had links clicked from searches turning up in threaded mode, seemingly at random.

However I've found a way to forever ban the useless threaded mode from ever sullying my screen again
Non-Https Image Link


I'm using Firefox with the GreaseMonkey extension, and this script:

Code:
// ==UserScript==
// @name HoP flat only
// @namespace http://diveintomark.org/projects/greasemonkey/
br>// @description Never see pages in threaded mode again
// @include http://homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php*
br>// @include http://*.homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php*
br>// ==/UserScript==

window.location.href = window.location.href.replace(/showthreaded\.php/, 'showflat.php');


(save as flatonlyhop.user.js on your desktop, then drag'n'drop onto the firefox window after installing greasemonkey)

Any 'showthreaded' pages start to load up as normal, then the script catches them and loads up the flat version. Works from any link in firefox/email/bookmarks/history.

It's amazing the pranks you could do with this extension (Like changing the words 'Osama Bin Laden' to someone's name in every page they view). And it has loads of legitimate uses too.
