      • Description:

        Simply provide this tracker with a list of threads that you want to track, and it will automatically stay up to date and show you who posted last and whether it's your turn. Note that it will only show threads that the person viewing the list is allowed to see, so you can safely use this tracker to track faction threads in a public ooc area, for example. You can post this tracker multiple times in the same thread for different characters, or you can list all your character's threads in a single instance of the tracker.

         

        The settings for your character/site are all in the first <script></script> block, to configure the way it works or adjust it to work on a specific site/skin - you may need to edit those but you shouldn't need to touch anything else (if you're comfortable with css you can fiddle with those bits). Feel free to PM me if you can't get it working on your site.

         

        This uses the skin's default link and text colours, so it works on both light and dark themes. It will adjust to any screen width, and will work in jcink's default mobile mode as well.

         

        Settings:

         

        Thread List - This is where you tell it which threads to track by listing the thread IDs (eg if the url of the thread includes showtopic=73 or t=73 then the Thread ID is 73). You can have any number of sections in the tracker, each specified as "Section Name": [threadID, threadID, threadID], and the sections separated by commas inside the {}. You might like to organize your threads by character, or by event threads vs 1-on-1, or whatever works for you.  If any section name contains the words "On Hold" or "Closed", it will not include the last poster for that thread or flag whether it is your turn.

         

        Character Names - When not using the Previous Poster setting below, the tracker will assume that it is your turn if the last poster is not any of the characters in this list. If you leave this blank, it will use the name of the account you use to post this.

         

        Previous Poster - if your site does strict posting order, you can use the Thread ID and the name of the character who posts before you; the tracker will only show that it is your turn if the last poster in that thread is the one who specified here. If you leave this commented out, or for any threads not in this list, the tracker will show it is your turn any time you are not the last poster.

         

        Classes - for themes/skins not based on the jcink default theme, you will likely need to change some or all of these. If any of the sections of the tracker don't show up (It should show thread title, forum/location, thread description, last poster's name, and last post date), then right click on that element of the actual page/post, and click Inspect Element. Find the closest wrapping element with a class or an id, and change the appropriate line to that. For class names, include a period in front of the class name, if you are referencing an id, you will need to put "[id=whatever_it_is]" instead.

         

        For example:

        1467800567_ScreenShot2019-09-25at12_44_49PM.png.1b47297c1795a29a3b1202a91662834b.png

        Here, the post date is wrapped in an <a> tag that does not have a class, but that is inside a <span> with class="ttPost_date", so  you would need to change const Post_Date_Class = ".postdetails"; to const Post_Date_Class = ".ttPost_Date";

         

        Note: for the forum/location, use the navigation bar's class or id rather than the <a> tag's if it has one, because the script is looking for the last link inside the specified element.

        This will automatically show all the threads that you have participated in (with a single account), and show you who posted last and whether it's your turn. Note that it will only show threads that the person viewing the list is allowed to see, so you can safely use this tracker to track faction threads in a public ooc area, for example. The person looking at the tracker also needs permission to use the site search, so e.g. if guest searching is turned off the tracker will not show anything if you are logged out.

         

        On the jcink default theme, or skins based on it, this requires NO configuration if you post it from the account you want tracked. However, there are settings for your character/site are all in the first <script></script> block, to configure the way it works or adjust it to work on a specific site/skin - you may need to edit those but you shouldn't need to touch anything else (if you're comfortable with css you can fiddle with those bits). You can post this tracker multiple times in the same thread with different characters. Feel free to PM me if you can't get it working on your site.

         

        This uses the skin's default link and text colours, so it works on both light and dark themes. It will adjust to any screen width, and will work in jcink's default mobile mode as well (though it won't show the thread descriptions there).

         

        Settings:

         

        Character Name - if you are posting the tracker from an ooc account, put in the account name of the character you want to track. If you leave this blank, it will track the threads posted by the post author. Depending on your site theme, though, you may need to specify this regardless.

         

        Previous Poster - if your site does strict posting order, you can use the Thread ID (eg if the url of the thread includes showtopic=73 or t=73 then the Thread ID is 73) and the name of the character who posts before you; the tracker will only show that it is your turn if the last poster in that thread is the one who specified here. If you leave this commented out, or for any threads not in this list, the tracker will show it is your turn any time you are not the last poster.

         

        Ignore Forums - you can use this to remove threads in ooc forums from the tracker, if you wish.

         

        Locked Thread Definition - this may need to be changed if the skin has has changed the locked thread icon/macro. If the tracker isn't properly sorting threads into the open/closed section, do any search on your site that you know will turn up at least one locked thread (make sure to show results as threads not as posts). Then, right-click on the locked thread icon/indicator, and hit Inspect Element. You are looking for what type of tag it is, and one unique attribute that will distinguish it from other thread status icons.

         

        Here's the default jcink template:

        95668098_ScreenShot2019-09-25at3_48_28PM.jpg.d992a18c5571f6044b133e6bcf02fd04.jpg

        The lock icon is an <img> tag with a pretty unique title="Closed", so the default setting is:  Locked_Thread_Definition = "img[title=Closed]";

        We could just as easily use the alt text instead: Locked_Thread_Definition = "img[alt=Closed]";
        If there were no thing else usable, we could also also use the src attribute.

         

        Here's a theme that uses fontawesome icons:

        1900934438_ScreenShot2019-09-25at3_27_09PM.jpg.aae90b9042ef0b48ef028fffdf5e0e64.jpg

        The lock icon is an <i> tag with class="fas fa-lock", so we change the setting to: Locked_Thread_Definition = "i[class='fas fa-lock']"; (there's a space, so we have to put it inside single quotes.)

        Since we're using a class name, we can also use a plain css selector: Locked_Thread_Definition = "i.fa-lock";

         

        Next Tracker Delay - avoids search flood control when using this multiple  times in the same thread. This sets the delay in seconds for the second tracker to run the search, the third tracker will wait twice this number from the time the page loads, etc. If you get a flood control error, it should hopefully tell you how long you need to wait between searches, or you can just play around with it until it works.

        This is a crime themed thread tracker that I made a year or so ago, now free for your use. You can edit it however you like and this could be easily adapted for use as a simple plotter as well.
