So until then..stay tuned!
Hey all, I’ve been toying with the idea of creating an Opera Bugs page so anyone can submit a quick summary of a bug that they posted to the Opera Bug Wizard. If I build a page like this, it will be useful to all Opera fans/addicts if they want to ‘track’ a bug. Currently it is not possible to track bugs that you submit via the bug wizard. This submission tool would allow users to keep track of these bugs in a public way and update the status when there is a change.
I was thinking that I might have items very similar to the bug wizard so users can just copy and paste…making it very easy to add to the bug collection. The following entry items give an idea:
What is the Bug Number Given by Opera Bug Wizard?
What Date Bug was posted on Opera Bug Wizard:
What kind of problem is this?
Where is the problem?
->Web page problem
->Mail, news & feeds
Brief summary of the problem encountered
What URL triggers this bug, if any?
Describe in 3 steps or more how to reproduce this bug
When following the steps described above:
1. What do you expect to appen?
2. What actually happens?
Specify what version of Opera you are using:
That is about all that I’ve come up with so far, but I have not began coding anything yet. We’ll see in the next few weeks to come.
Ok, so we all know that you can have a ‘Saved Session’ in Opera and have it open first. This enables you to have what they call “Multiple Homepages”, but I recently had an idea for true ‘Multiple Homepages’. Here it is..
The idea is simple really. You start out by going to the ‘Bookmarks -> Manage bookmarks…’
Now you want to create a folder to store all of the ‘Multiple Homepages’ in. This way you can add as many as you wish and edit the list anytime. Click the arrow beside the ‘Add’ button and select ‘Add New Folder’…
Now that you have a folder made, you can name it anything. Right click on the new folder and in the menu select ‘Properties’. In the properties menu you can edit the name of the folder at anytime. For this example I have called the folder ‘homepages’. The most important part of this step is that you give the folder the nickname ‘homepages’ as seen in the image below. You may add a description if you wish, then click ‘OK’ to save settings.
Now that you’ve added the folder and named it what you wanted, you just need to add a button somewhere so you can open all of your ‘Multiple Homepages’ whenever you wish. To do this simply drag the button you see below to any place in your toolbar as seen in the image below.
Drag me to your toolbar–> [BUTTON]
Now that you’ve finished adding the button where ever you wish, you are finished! That being said, I’d like to say that this task would be accomplished much more easily if Opera would allow us to use nicknames as homepages in the ‘Preferences’ window..
But since they don’t..we are forced to find ‘remedies’ for our problems. I am planning to suggest this to the Opera Developing team so they can possibly add this in the future. It should be as simple as removing the code that inserts the extra ‘http://’ in front of any string that you insert into the homepage text box. (you can see this for your self if you set your homepage in Preferences to ‘homepages’ or something like that then reopen Preferences to see what it saved it as.

I’ve been spending some of my bored time working on a small ‘fun’ project that I had been wanting to get started. I made an Alarm Clock that you can create an account/password for and setup your very own list of alarms to wake you up in the morning. It is very easy to use and it works! If you by chance do have any questions or comments then please feel free to ask away! Comments can be left here for this blog entry..or you can send me an email if you wish (look at the contact me page). I’m always open for suggestions and constructive criticism.
As always..I’ve tried my best to make it follow webstandards and w3 standards, haha. I’m always coding by standards, but that’s what us Opera fanatics do, lol. We don’t force people to use Opera, we already know it’s the best. 😛
Back on topic, I hope you all find the Online Alarm Clock useful!
