This is a known bug and is on the bug tracker already. As a work-around, you can click on the timestamp to view the post with the comments already expanded, and comment-expansion works in the notification pane.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I assume you are using the adblocker, another solution is to only use adblock-lists that doesn't contain element hiding rules.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I haven't found these issues / feature requests in the bugtracker but I may have missed them. I also don't know if it's possible to fix / add them them or not really. I'd appreciate any pointers and suggestions.

1. Emulate the behaviour of e.g. firefox where visited links are of different color https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 27#p984827
2. dwb usually misses the anchors and shows page somewhat below or even the very bottom of the page https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p1174505
3. Whitelist certain websites so the ads they show are not blocked by adblocker.
4. The manpage doesn't list 'wO'.

Sorry if I missed some settings / discussion.

Edit: The anchors seems to be respected if I open the link in the same tab.

Feature requests that aren't in the bugtracker yet are best placed there so they don't get lost in pages and pages of an Arch forum thread.

It also works, if you enable tabs to be loaded only on focus. Strange, but seems to be true here.

yeah I copied over ~/.config/dwb to new install, and have double checked that the script is indeed in the userscripts folder. Still using xubu, and things work fine there, so not sure why this doesn't work.

I think I will check if I still have the tarball I used to install dwb on xubu and try installing that on new install if it is a different rel., and see if that makes a diff.

Yeah ok, it's all working as intended, and as I quite expected the problem was most definitely user error: a permissions issue which once chmod +x ~/.config/dwb/userscripts/ was run cleared the problem. I had previously only checked permissions on the script itself, neglecting the folder. DOH!

1: dwb uses webkit_web_history_item_new_with_data and webkit_web_history_add_item to restore the history of a previous session as it is mentioned in the webkitgtk-ticket. So that's a bug in webkitgtk. I won't work around those bug because dwb had to parse the whole site with javascript to color visited links from previous sessions every time a new site is loaded.
2: I'll try to fix that.
3: Sounds reasonable. When i first started with the adblocker it wasn't really possible to whitelist pages because not all requests could be associated with a tab but now it should be possible.

Try the settings file:

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

You need aspell installed, if you leave spell-checking-languages empty webkit will use your systems locale.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there's a way to not have aspell installed, as the dependency chain looks like this:
dwb -> libwebkit (webkitgtk2) -> enchant -> aspell

It's true for webkitgtk3 too.

That's true, but the dictionaries are not a dependency of libwebkit and without dictionaries it won't work.

I don't know what is the standard procedure for dictionaries, but maybe this should be mentioned as an optdepend?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I've just installed dwb (very nice!) and I'm getting the "border around form elements" bug. It took me a while to apply the solution (applying a user style-sheet - not hard to google). What's not obvious is that you should use a "web browser style path" (so file:///home/user/.config/dwb/stylesheet.css, not /home/user/.config/dwb/stylesheet.css). I thought I'd leave that here in the hope it'd be useful for others!

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

When restoring page with fragment id (like this), the page is restored to the top, ignoring the fragment. When pressing shift+r to restore the page without the cache, it also ignores the fragment, but I can see some flickering, like the page is restored correctly but immediately scrolled to the top. Is it some javascript? Can someone confirm it?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

dwb uses webkit's builtin functions for reloading a site. These functions ignore the fragment part when reloading, instead it scrolls to the last position. You could circumvent this by defining your own reload function as a custom command, e.g.:

r:open $URI

Thanks, but how does webkit save last position? Doesn't it require gconf? If it does, I don't see how the position could be saved as I don't have gconf, when I start dwb I see

GLib-GIO-Message: Using the 'memory' GSettings backend.  Your settings will not be saved or shared with other applications.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

No, it doesn't require gconf, it is saved internally and not exposed, it's also not saved between sessions. The message just says that dwb doesn't use GSettings.

Edit: Maybe i misunderstood you, you mean restoring like restoring a session or calling :undo? Undo is fixed in git, when restoring a session there is a problem, dwb doesn't load the url with webkit's function webkit_web_view_load_uri when restoring a session, that's the only way to have have the correct position with links that contain fragments. I try to find a way to circumvent this.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I meant restoring like shutting down dwb and starting it again - undo works fine for me.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

That's not always possible without modifying the history, the only way to have a forward-history is to apply the old history to a newly created tab and after that navigate back in history which will, just like reloading a site, ignore fragments. So the only option would be to drop the forward history.

Edit: Another way would be to add the forward history after the site has loaded, that would mean that the forward history isn't available during first page load but i think that would be ok. You could create a ticket on the bugtracker, currently i don't have time to work on dwb.

Check if 'yY' is what you want.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@karol, why "yY"?  I have always used just "yy" and it works fine, as it is putting it int he clipboard.  The capital "Y" is putting it in "primary".
