Thanks to those who responded with suggestions and bugs!
Wrote this for myself to make browsing my interesting tags easier in three ways.
When browsing a single one of your "Interesting" tags, shows previous and next buttons within the sidebar for easy navigation to the previous and next interesting tag in your tag list. I find scrolling down to the "Interesting Tags" box and hunting for the next interesting tag I want to see to be a pain, this makes it very easy.
Adds a "View All Interesting" link to the siebar, which does an OR search on your interesting tags, effectively limiting your search results to ONLY questions having one of your interesting tags.
Uses the tag name in the page header, e.g. "Perl Questions" rather than "Tagged Questions" for tags you are viewing. Works with "and" and "or" searches with multiple tags as well, but has a length-limit due to the layout of the site. I prefer to display the tag I'm on in a bold, obvious way.
- Moved all links into the sidebar using native styles, giving a cleaner, more integrated look.
- Moving links out of the "Interesting Tags" area fixed the nasty bug that mangled your interesting tags when using this script.
- When adding or removing tags, the "Previous", "Next", and "View All Interesting" links are updated appropriately.
- When viewing stats pages or other tag pages with GET-style URL parameters, the heading rewrite now happens correctly.
- Limited the sites on which the script operates to SO, SF, and SU using the
- Removed excess slash from the "View All Interesting" link.
- Added a "Case Correction" filter to the script, currently pre-populated with the most common tags on SO (first page of tags) which have non-standard capitalization schemes. This makes it so that, for example, the mysql tag is rendered in the header as 'MySQL Questions' rather than 'Mysql Questions'. To add more tags to correct, just edit the
caseCorrectionobject at the top of the script.
Still To Do:
- Implement the trick suggested by Rich Seller to utilize StackOverflow's included jQuery rather than the one from GoogleAPI.
