Open the WikiEd script in TamperMonkey, search for the line for "auto updating", then comment out the following line by adding "//":

Code: Select all
// auto updating
//'wikEdGreasemonkeyAutoUpdate': 'wikEd Update:\n\nA new version of the GreaseMonkey script "wikEd" is available.\n\n\nIt will be downloaded from:\n\n{updateURL}',

WikEd install help - Chrome/Tapermonkey

Postby Fredo-p » Fri May 23, 2014 10:45 pm

With the editor toolbar having been removed till further notice, it has been recommended that WikEd be used (see the post [New Plugin] WikiEd Gadget/Greasemonkey plugin from Kentsmith9). It's an awesome script to have.Unfortunately, it loves FF and GreaseMonkey, but sees Chrome and Tapermonkey as a redheaded stepchild.

When ever I open chrome and go to any wiki site, I keep getting this update notice:


How do I get this thing to stop poping up and redirecting me to a script page everytime I open Chrome? I get lost when I read the installation instruction since I follow it and end up at the same script page as the update window directs me to. I am looking for any Chrome users with Tapermonkey and WikEd installed to give me some guidance as to how you installed the script.

This is the line in the instalation file that I don't get:
WikEd.js wrote:Installation:

PLEASE DO NOT COPY THE WHOLE PROGRAM in order to get the frequent updates and bug fixes and to save disk space!
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Cacycle/wikEd for installation instructions


So what the hell do I copy to get it to install?

Once we get it installed on the server, you won't have to do that and you will still have the auto update (working correctly).

Of course this will be coming "soon." :mrgreen:

I mentioned in another thread that my FF/Greasemonkey installation of WikEd was also bombarding me with the update notification on every page. I went in to make this auto update change above and I noticed I had an older copy of WikEd still installed. The update keeps wanting to add x.127 which is already installed, but what was still present was a version of x.126c.

I removed the x.126c and I would assume that will fix the problem for me. I will come back if it pops up again.

So, is it "soon" yet? :mrgreen:

I've got Chrome with Tampermonkey, and as of 0.9.114a, it still constantly bugs me about updating. I just saw the mention here about the AutoUpdate line; I found it and have commented it out. Hopefully that will save me from another false update alert. :)

I really do love the features this extension offers, but it has gotten really old going to a Wiki page of pretty much any kind and have it pop up with "I must update!" and then it yanks the page away to display the full script (which doesn't update). Which is why I'm glad I found the note here about how to turn it off. But now if there's an update, I'll likely miss it since I had to turn the auto updating feature off. So it would be nice if there was some way to fix this so that us Chrome/Tampermonkey fans could use it as intended without having to hack it to turn off a feature which should work... :)
