[Sidebr 3.03] Quick Fix

Looks like Tumblr is changing some behind-the-scenes stuff.

Made a quick update to fix the look and feel.

[Sidebr 3.0] Restore Tumblr Sidebr (Greasemonkey) [Chrome, Firefox, Safari (Mac only), Opera]

Version 3 Released!

New features:

  • Hide any and all parts of the sidebr!
  • Undock the sidebr! Have it move around as you scroll!

A quick demo of the new features.

[Sidebr 2.0] Restore Tumblr Sidebr (Greasemonkey) [Chrome, Firefox, Safari (Mac only), Opera]

Major update:

  • Code overhaul. Userscript no longer depends on jQuery. Hopefully this doesn’t break compatibility…
  • You should notice some sort of speed increase b/c it’s not loading anything external.

As always, the userscript is here.

(Btw, I might have broken manually specified sidebars. I’ve tested it up to 3 tumblelogs, but I don’t have any more to make sure, however in theory the code is sound (HAH!). Message me if it doesn’t work beyond 3 tumblelogs and mention space penguins shooting skeeball.)

  • 2011-06-09 - Added tumblelogNum to manually set which tumblelog’s sidebar will be displayed

1. To manually change which sidebar is displayed, you need to find the userscript.

Chrome: (Find the edimojgejcmdanhinedfojglhhpfebdn folder under these folders and look for the largest version number (that is 1.0_10 > 1.0_2) and find script.js)

  • Windows: C:\Users<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Extensions

Firefox: (Find tumblr_sidebr.user.js)

  • Windows: C:\Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles<profile>\gm_scripts\tumblr_sidebr
  • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile?>/gm_scripts/tumblr_sidebar (Note: I haven’t gotten anyone to confirm the specific location on a Mac, but I imagine it’ll be similar. You can try using the finder to look for the filename above)

2. Open up the file in a text editor and edit the number on line 28. Then save.

var tumblelogNum = 1;

Don’t change anything else.

2b. (Chrome) Restart Chrome.

3. Reload your /dashboard.


(I have no idea where Safari keeps its userscripts. Message me and let me know!)

(This is me again assuming you Opera users know what you’re doing. ;)
