Protect Textarea

2005-05-26 16:07 - Greasemonkey User Scripts

This greasemonkey user script will protect users of web applications from their own forgetfulness. It watches textareas (multi line input boxes in web forms) for changes, and makes sure you don't throw them away. If you: navigate away from the web page, close the tab, or close the browser after making changes to a textarea on a web page, this script will throw up a prompt. You can hit cancel to get right back where you were and submit the form instead of throwing it away, or hit OK to continue and ignore the changes you made.

This is great for web forums, wikis, and so many other web applications.

This is one of the most helpful GM scripts I've encountered. Simple, but very useful. It shall be installed on the other computers I use as well. Thanks!

vBulletin integration?

Great stuff! Its about time someone got the time around to do it.

Is there way, and how, to integrate this in vBulletin?

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
