Little help?

Who has successfully installed a userscript on their LJ? Cuz I found one I'd like to install here but don't have the first clue how to do it. Thank you!

What's a userscript do/for?

They are written by various folks to tweak how your LJ works, like, disable LJ Snapshots or block Twitter posts. I'm just not at ALL sure what I'm doing here and I can't find anything useful in the FAQs.

Oh, that makes sense. And actually it sounds like turlough might be someone you could talk to - I'm pretty sure she'd posted about this stuff recently.

It would be cool to disable LJ snapshots - those links bug me.

Thanks, I'm asking the person who wrote the script, who's also on LJ. Wish me luck! And yeah, those snapshot thingies (esp. if you're reading, say, the lost_newsletter can be a real pain!

*butts in*

You can disable the snapshot thingys by going to the 'viewing options' part of edit profile and unticking Graphic Previews. That should get rid of the pesky little blighters.

(I figure if I reply here you'll both see it!)

Interesting.

The ones I'm looking at look like you should be able to toss them into the custom CSS area on the customize journal page, but I don't know. They're not real clear, are they? Some of them, like the no-Twitter one here look more like they're Firefox addons, which I understand nothing about.

Good luck!

Oh wow, you linked me to the very person who wrote the script I'm trying to use! I've figured out the first few steps, thanks to your link, but I've got more questions for her. Thanks again! :)
