Bugmonkey plug-in sample js

I have tried several simple scripts with bugmonkey, always come up with js error(s); also tried some greasemonkey scripts - main goals are:

- replace text in page content
- replace urls in <a> tags
- replace src in img tags
- replace alt text in img tags

would you kindly have any working example for a bugmonkey script that does something like the above.

KJ,
The js errors might be because the scripts are getting truncated if they are longer than 256 characters.

See this post for more info:
http://our.fogbugz.com/default.asp?fogbugz.4.92981.4

One workaround for this (if you're running FB on your own server) is to insert your script directly into the DB.

KJ,

You will probably get more answers/examples by re-posting your question at:

"You will probably get more answers/examples by re-posting your question at..."

Not true.  I only didn't respond because your answer was already the correct one.

Regardless, this is fixed in the latest FogBugz.

Michael,

I didn't mean to imply that you guys are ignoring this question.

What I should've said was that fogbugz stackexchange is a better forum for these type of questions. Has better support for pasting code samples, answers can be voted on, people get points for posting good answers, etc..

My main question in this thread was a kind request for an example along the given goals, possibly even cleverly tapping into existing variables or js objects that are instantiated upon page load ?

On a different Note:
I am aware of the new stackexchange.com forum, but have not yet understood as to how FogCreek likes to partition the form audiences or kind of requests. From what I read their comments, they are still finetuning that themselves.

With a twinkle eye, I hope that the FogBugzs discussion board will receive reasonable attention for long overdue feature overhaul. So as to allow readers and posters alike to filter relevant content / posts. Simplest example - if I search for LDAP support or Perforce integration - I would like to get an indication as to what software release of FB the posts pertains - so far I can only guess by posting dates. From a moderators perspective - any popularity index - "number of views / per period", "number of current email subscriptions", "number of current rss subscription"; would boost usability of the forum, while not competing with stackexchange which I understand really a "code / customization discussion board"

In the meantime I cannot be but amazed by the responsiveness of FogCreek in both forums. It can clearly be attributed to very committed individuals, Michael and Rich.

But, again, any help with a js site sample ?

I'll answer the stackexchange question here: We really just don't know.  We do know that StackExchange is in active development and the discussion boards are not (for now).

StackExchange has the capability to be an amazing support resource, and also has the huge advantage of editability and history. I'm going to be working with the SE engineers to figure out the best way to use it for support and as a knowledge resource.  Once we've fully leveraged that, we'll come back to the discussion boards and figure out what use cases are not supported.

KJ,

Finally came around to writing something along those lines.

Sample code for this can be found here:
