userscript: livejournal - show subject field

title. Livejournal - Show Subject Field
browsers tested. Chrome & Firefox
description. Shows subject field in Livejournal's new default comment pages.

  • If you are using Firefox, you will need the Greasemonkey add-on to run this script. If you're a Chrome user, there's no need for it.
  • But don't get too smug yet, Chrome users (which I am one, I admit). Unfortunately, there is a problem in the alignment of "Subject:" and the input field in Chrome when a post has ?mode=reply or ?replyto= in its URL. I tried to fix it within the script itself, but I just gave up and adjusted the damn thing with this Stylish script I made before (and if you already have it, be sure it's version 2.4.2 or higher since the fix for the subject field misalignment in Chrome has only recently been added). That said, if you don't want to use the userstyle, that's okay -- the subject field is still functional either way.
  • While this script does allow you to enter a subject, it will not put the subject line back in the header where it used to be. Rather, it will remain bolded and be placed as the first line in the text of your comment under the blue comment header. That's just how Livejournal displays a subject line these days whether in old or new comments. Now, if you want to see it back up there, the userstyle I linked to above makes that possible.
  • The subject field no longer automatically contains Re: [Subject of Previous Comment] when replying. I think you'll need additional code for that, and I... don't know what that would be.
  •  And just in case anyone asks: subjects entered with this script will still show up in your LJ inbox and in email notifications.

So there! Now go have some indecent fun with your subject fields.

ETA: (01/06) Whoops, I noticed that the code was affecting custom comment pages as well, instead of just the ones in the new default design. Specifically, the subject field was being moved to the right when that behaviour should've been occuring only in default comment pages. Sorry! I've updated the script so it should be fixed now. And if you're using Chrome and the userstyle Release 88 Tweaks, better update that as well (you should have at least v.2.4.2 or higher) 'cause I made a mistake there, too. *facepalm*

testing :D

Neat! Thank you for your hard work!

Does it also materialize subject titles in collapsed threads, or is it only adhering to how subject titles appear in the new layout (re: bold, under the blue info bar)?

Thank you!

YES. Thank you so much for this.

A question: can the subjects be made to show up in collapsed comments? That would be one of the final triumphs in undoing the "update."

I thought I would come here and comment too because YOU ARE MY HERO. ♥

Also, so you don't need to come find me for comments for updates (which I appreciate like nothing else, thank you ~so much), if I track your release 88 tag in the event of you having time to look at the collapsed comments thinger, would that help?
