Moderation in place

The latest update to blummy covers moderation.
I have cleaned up the blummlets so that there should not be too many blummlets doing the same thing left. While cleaning up I had to merge a few blummlets; if everything went okay you wouldn't have noticed anything, if not, a blummlet might have disappeared from your blummy. Sorry for that.

  • [GUI] A check next to a blummlet means that it has been verified by a moderator.
  • [Feature] In preferences you can check whether you want to see unverified blummlets, too (default is no)
  • [Feature] You can now choose to open a blummlet in a new Window or Tab (Preferences under advanced). This is actually a not seen feature for bookmarklets. It is established by using the Blummy library function Blummy.href() which resembles location.href = url as Blummy.href(url).
  • [GUI] Cleaned up the preferences window a bit.

With cleaning up I moved almost each blummlet using location.href to use Blummy.href so that for most of them the "open in tab" feature should work. Additionally I have converted all the document.selection/window.getSelection etc. to Blummy.getSelection so that using the selection should work in almost any browser now.

    There is no link from this blog til the preferences page. You first have to go to config, and then to prefs.

    The Preferences link is only available when advanced configuration is turned on. If it is then there is also a link to preferences in the blog.

    Hey. the problem I was facing previously with Opera 9.0 pr1 crashing at blummy-page entry has been fixed ;) It turns out that the problem was with the Macromedia Flash Player 8 plugin. Anyway, thanks for that quick tip.
