Lazyload
« on: July 19, 2014, 03:27:21 PM »
Anyone familiar with "lazyload"?
How-to-Geek uses something called lazyload in their html code.
Images on the page aren't loaded until you scroll down to them on the page.
I open a page, determine from the title that I want to save it to disk, click Save and wind up with a page with a dozen placeholders and a dozen missing images!
Trying to follow a tutorial with a series of screenshots and the pretty pictures missing is a PITA.
Any way to defeat lazyload?

I believe there is a Greasemonkey plugin that will disable Lazyload. Look here.

Thanks!
Downloaded a 2kb .js which says remove lazyload but I have no idea what to do with it.
No wrapper and no instructions!
I need some more advice, please, and I think I can do it without pictures... ;D

Found it!
Just dragged it to the menu bar and it stuck?
Let me try it. If this works you see big tears of joy :D

You need to install:
GreaseMonkey for Mozilla based browsers (Firefox, Pale Moon, etc),
TamperMonkey for Chrome based browsers (Chrome, Opera Net, etc).

I don't think there's a version for current IE versions, (didn't spend much time looking though - I don't use IE).

Then you can go to the link 40hz posted,
  • copy all the script text into the Clipboard,
  • left-click the arrow next to the GreaseMonkey icon in your Firefox toolbar, (if you put it there), and choose New User Script, (might be different for Chrome based browser, don't have one installed atm),
  • choose Use Script from Clipboard,
  • choose File menu, Save and then close the editor window.

The script is installed.

There's probably one on Userscripts where you can just hit the Install button, but I can't access the site atm to search.

Found one at the mirror site: nolazyload - You just hit the green Install button there once you have GreaseMonkey/TamperMonkey installed.

Wow!
You guys working nights on a weekend yet just to solve my petty little problems!
I really appreciate the help and from the looks of things I may need more of it?
Greasemonkey has 818 PAGES of add-ins and I'll install them all if necessary to defeat Lazyload.
I've only run across Lazyload with How-to-Geek, and then only with a couple of their authors. Hopefully they'll see the error of their ways and find another hobby.

It was pointed out that nolazyload add-in may not be available for IE11 but I'll check. I use IE because I can edit the source code of a web page. I've never used Firefox before and just installed it a few days ago at the suggestion of TaoPhoenix.
There's a learning curve here but I may be able to simplify my life by moving my simple little project to Firefox. It's something new to play with at least.
Thanks again guys..... I'm off to break something!

Hmm, I think in the US Constitution they count each of us as 3/5 of a person.  Unless you use a Mac.  :)

Userscript.org has been inaccessible for more than two months.

Userscripts.org down for good? Here are alternatives:

Quote from: a mozillaZine forum user
I have a number of userscripts in Firefox and noticed that when I went to update all add-ons they was taking 3-4 minutes to update. Turns out it is because userscripts.org site is down and has been down for days. Checking around on the web I found information that the site is officially dead. I've had to change the update url in all my scripts to "about:blank" and now the add-ons update quickly again.

I didn't mean to cause all this trouble, and was about to report some of the info about the sites being down. In addition, the scripts that I downloaded, copied, etc. won't install....... appear to be corrupt??
Does anyone have any of those Lazyload scripts installed and working? I've been slow dancing with this little project all day and have confirmed that javascript "ain't no damned good", all these pages and pages of info about scripts and their value to mankind is propaganda put out by the government and none of it ever did work!
How-to-Geek should be blacklisted for using it, and I would except I don't know how.
Big problems in the Ukraine and the Middle East and How-to-Geek is using lazyload to distract me from working on those issues.
I'm about to quit and you fellows can take the rest of the day off in appreciation for your efforts up to this moment!
If anyone is running the script Disable Lazy load please advise. I've got IE11, Chrome and Firefox 30.0 but will gladly load another browser if that's what it takes.
Thanks again..........
