  • There isn't a way to hide signatures, but you can toggle Flat list or Threaded list views in Quick Access\My Settings if that helps.

  • Here is a sample code for chrome as template.

    I did not test this as it is. I toke one of my production scripts and cleaned to so assuming I did not made mistake in the editing now, this is the basic idea of how you add button to the page and clicking it will remove specific content from the page

    // ==UserScript==
    // @name         Ronen_Template
    // @namespace    http://ariely.info/
    // @version      0.1
    // @description  only template for example
    // @author       Ronen Ariely
    // @match        <enter the URL of the page you want to edit>
    // @grant        GM_addStyle
    // ==/UserScript==
    
    //debugger;
    
    /* History and future *
    
    */
    
    // Adding Button
    var NewDivNode       = document.createElement ('div');
    NewDivNode.setAttribute ('id', 'ArielyNewDivID');
    
    NewDivNode.innerHTML = '<button id="Ariely_Clean_Btn" type="button">Clean Page</button>';
    
    var AriDiv = document.getElementById("<find the element where you want to add your new clean utton>").parentNode.parentNode.parentNode;
    var AriparentDiv = AriDiv.parentNode;
    AriparentDiv.insertBefore(NewDivNode, AriDiv);
    
    // Activate the newly added button
    document.getElementById ("Ariely_Clean_Btn").addEventListener ("click", Ariely_Clean_Fn, false);
    
    function Ariely_Clean_Fn (zEvent) {
    	// this the way we remove content from the page
    	// add line for each element you want to remove from the page
        document.getElementById("<find the id of the element that you want to remove>").remove();
    }
    
    /*************************************************  */
    //--- Style our newly added elements using CSS.
    GM_addStyle ( multilineStr ( function () {/*!
        #Ariely_Clean_Btn{
        }
    */} ) );

    Good day chromewin,

    Like any interface, the forum has it's design which the developers (actually the architect) choose, but DON'T EVER SAY NEVER if you are a developer :-)

    There is a simple way which I use in some case, and it is using client side scripts. You can use for example Tampermonkey in chrome or greasemonkey in Firefox in order to redesign the forum in the exact way you want. The big question is: Is it worth your time :-(

  • I am wonder the same...

    Hi chromewin10,

    During the entire thread you did not even said thanks for the help people tried to give you, behave a bit like we owe you something (help) and more important you did not follow the thread for two weeks once you got (at least seems like you got) the answer and even a code to implement, and now you unmark the answere without any explanation... someone might see it as a rude, don't you think so?!?

    Please clarify your action, and close the thread

    The question is totally out of the scope of this forum! Please close this thread and if you have more question in this topic find a forum for Tampermonkey in chrome or greasemonkey in Firefox, according to the browser that you use.

    Thanks,
