Patch the Web

This is the Javascript patch file for the Opera "Fix the Web" extension.

Before applying a patch to a web page, contact the owner of that website, inform them about the problem, and request that they fix it. If your request is ignored or turned down, then you may resort to applying a patch to the web page with this script.

Remember, our top priority is to fix the web for everyone, not just the users of this extension through this patch script.

How to Apply a Patch

This Javascript is injected into all web pages, so restrict the patch to the page(s) or website that needs the patch with a conditional if () block. Don't let your code leak to the global scope.

Patches

Check out this page for guidelines for adding patches.

Use this syntax to document each patch in a commented-out line about your patch:

// PATCH-id (latest stable Opera version tested, status, sitename.com/fixed-page(s)) information about the bug that this patch fixes

Make "status" "patch added" when you add the patch. When a new stable version of Opera is released or a website's code is updated, you may want to test if the patches in the file are still required. If the bug on the website is no longer there, then remove the patch code, but don't remove the comment. Just change the comment to this:

// PATCH-id (latest stable Opera version tested, patch removed, sitename.com/fixed-page(s)) information about the bug that this patch fixes

If the patch is still needed, but you want to show that you tested it again, then change the comment to this:

// PATCH-id (latest stable Opera version tested, patch still needed, sitename.com/fixed-page(s)) information about the bug that this patch fixes

If the bug changed so that the current patch is no longer fixing the bug, then update the patch's code and update the comment to this:

// PATCH-id (latest stable Opera version tested, patch updated, sitename.com/fixed-page(s)) information about the bug that this patch fixes
