That is waaaaay cool!

FYI...it doesn't load in FireFox 0.9.3 http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/> but you probably knew that.

But it is very, very cool. That would be a wonderful addtion to nearly every web site I can think of! Great idea!

Noel,
When I "Search Forums with X1," I see the html code in the replies instead of the formatted messages :roll:. Is this normal or is there a fix? Thanks!

just wondering if X1 plans to implement support for Mozilla Thunderbird email program?

www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/

due to computer security concerns, we are going to:

a) use Thunderbird as main email program in the near future.

b) fyi, already using FireFox browser as main Browser, instead of Internet Explorer.

reason? IE / Outlook Express is too big a target, and the number of security problems is getting out of hand--weekly "security fixes".

I have a 5Gb compendium of telecom manuals - would I be able to use this sometime to create an indexed dvd which would work (be searchable with x1) in any machine it was inserted into, regardless of whether that machine had the client version of x1 on it?

Seeing as it would be a fixed archive on a readonly disk, I guess the index would only need to be created once..

Would there be some kind of licence available to allow that use?

This is really interesting!

I tried the trial client version of x1 & it did a sterling job of indexing the files when I put them in a directory on the hard drive., it would just be nice to have a fully portable version which could be taken to site & searched on any old computer the site happened to have in their office.. this would save a hell of a lot of time for information-overloaded comms engineers like myself!

Good to hear about support for Thunderbird.

Is the "Search Forums with X1" working?

I am asking because it never works when I click it. I am running IE 6.0.28.....

If it is working, would certain browser configurations product the error, "cannot be displayed"?

Are you on a firewall that doesn't allow laternate port traffic?

We're going to change that soon...but in the meantime, try http://demo.x1.com. It's not the forum posts, but it is the server-side index, delivered to a browser...

Having trouble with this feature on multiple systems running IE6 with XP SP2.

I get only parts of the screen, and if I refresh, I get a more complete page but no contents and the following script error:

line: 347
Char: 3
Error: Invalid argument
Code:0
URL: http://forumsearch.x1.com:2542/

Ideas?

-Bozford

P.S. I even tried adding the forumsearch.x1.com to my trusted sites.

I have created a user script for the Greasemonkey extension to Firefox to fix the forum search so that it will work properly in Firefox.

You should be able to just right click the url and choose 'Install User Script...'

http://www.stephenandrobin.com/x1/fixforum.x1.user.js

I suspect that the X1 Enterprise web interface works the same way, so it should work for that as well. If anyone is using X1 Enterprise and could confirm that I would appreciate it, my company will not shell out the $3,000 to join the beta program to let me see X1 Enterprise.

Enjoy.

Many thanks for your offer to fix up FireFox to work with X1 forums!

By the way, has your FireFox fix been posted & publicly available on the www.mozilla.org site?

Unfortunately our policy is to download FireFox fixes only from official browser site...

Many thanks for your hard work anyways!

Brilliant - it works perfectly with the personal version - sorry I don't know about the enterprise version.

Hi Alec,

Tks for your heads up... didn't realize that latest Beta is different from the recently downloadable v5.2 demo...which is called Version 5.2, Build 1852bv
www.x1.com/download

For the record, i'm using v5.2 Beta Build 1852bt


BTW, long time no see at the forums, Alec!

To clarify, it is not a fix to FireFox itself, it is some javascript code that modifies the X1 search page on the fly so that it will work in FireFox. It will not change FireFox, and it will not change any other pages you go to.

Hopefully that makes you feel more comfortable with it.

My FireFox v1.03 don't allow me to right-click your URL and choose "Install User Script"...

Is there any other way to work around this?

You need to first install the Greasemonkey plugin that allows you to install a bunch of handy user scripts.

You can get it directly here, or you can find out more about it at http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/

Hi BreakALegge,

Sorry to sound like a noob, so what GreaseMonkey Script should I install, and what URL link? There was literally hundreds of Scripts one can install from...


I've just installed GreaseMonkey v0.2.6 onto my FireFox v1.04 but still cannot right-click your URL and choose "Install User Script"...

Thank you in advance!

Hi Mr. Wong :-) Been here all along but monitor X1 forums using WebSite Watcher and so, sometimes get the news a little late!

You probably figured this out already but just in case:

Re: Greasemonkey - latest version is 0.3.3 or 0.3.4. Version 0.2.6 did not work with Firefox 1.0.4. It recently got added to the "official" list of extensions. see https://addons.mozilla.org/quicksearch.php?q=greasemonkey&section=A

I've just installed GreaseMonkey v0.2.6 onto my FireFox v1.04 but still cannot right-click your URL and choose "Install User Script"...


To install a user-script into greasemonkey open the js link in the browser and from Firefox-Tools dropdown select "Iinstall user script ..."

<Way off topic>:
Alec, I've been using the WebSite Watcher for one day now, and it's a very interesting program!

Do you know if WebSite Watcher has good integration with its sister program, WebSite-Archive which archives web sites for offline use?
www.aignes.com/wsarc/index.htm
If it does, I may consider buying both these programs WebSite Watcher plus WebSite-Archive.
(This is despite my self-imposed ban on anymore hardware or software before 64-bit Windows Lornhorn comes out hopefully end-2006).


I've been using Zylox's Offline Commander (www.zylox.com), and have been wishing for a few years that it had the functionality that your WebSite Watcher has...
(Currently I literally have to print out the old web site before refreshing it for a newer version, and then manually checking for any differences!)

I've been using WebSite watch for several months now and it is brilliant and it seems there is very little it can't do. I tested several rivels (mainly TimelyWeb and Copernic) but their features were lacking and you may as well assume there is no support or development on either product.

I also started using LocalArchive as well but found it wasn't great but then to be fair I didn't use it for very long as I use ContentSaver and when I want to store a change or difference I just use the right-click menu option that ContentSaver has which works in the WebSiteWatcher internal browser window. ContentSaver also has plugins for Firefox so no problems - and it's cheaper than most of the rivals out there - here endith my 'plug'.


Cheers,
Darren.

tks for your tip on ContentSaver!
yeah, LocalArchive don't save layers of web pages, so it's not robust enough for me...
(I need a web archiving program that can save n-layers down from a certain web page... so the Offline Commander family of products is good enough for me... (www.zylox.com)

Off topic: GreaseMonkey FireFox but very important from its developers:

http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/

"Important Announcement

A severe security issue has been discovered in Greasemonkey versions prior to 0.3.5 as well as the early 0.4 alphas which some people may have installed.

Install Greasemonkey 0.3.5 or uninstall Greasemonkey immediately.
[Until a fix has been added at the upcoming v0.4x stage]

...

warned that the published exploits are "much, much worse" than first imagined, noting that a successful attacker could hijack any world-readable file from a vulnerable computer.

"An attacker doesn't even need to know the exact filename," he said, noting that a certain exploit would return a parseable directory listing.

"In other words, running a Greasemonkey script on a site can expose the contents of every file on your local hard drive to that site," Pilgrim said..."

Firefox isn't beta. But it doesn't support "Forum search".

Although you can install the "IE Tab" Add-On to Firefox and still search the X1 Forums from within Firefox.

The new version for Firefox 3.0 is here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419

The old version for Firefox 2.0 is here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... sions/1419

Yes, I have that and have set it to automatically switch to IE Tab when it hits the appropriate address.

Now that the "Search Forums" feature supports Firefox, this topic is redundant and is locked.
