in reply to Voting buttons at bottom rather than top?

This is my incomplete implementation, to be used from the free nodelet. It moves the radio button to the cell at the right, above the options [reply], [/msg], [d/l] and such.

<script language="Javascript"> // reparent voting radio buttons var replies_table = document.getElementById ('replies_table'); if (replies_table) { var divs = replies_table.getElementsByTagName ('div'); for (var i = divs.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) { var node = divs`[i`]; var class = node.getAttribute('class'); if ('vote' != class) { continue; } var dest = node.parentNode.nextSibling; // remove <center> tag node.innerHTML = node.firstChild.innerHTML; // discard spacing between <label>s var children = node.childNodes; for (var j = children.length - 1; j >= 0; j--) { var c = children`[j`]; //alert (c.tagName + ' ' + c.innerHTML); if ('LABEL' != c.tagName) { node.removeChild (c); continue; } } // insert <br>s between <label>s for (var j = children.length - 1; j >= 1; j--) { node.insertBefore (document.createElement ('br'), children +`[j`]); } // add a couple of nbsp's to make the cell wider in // order to make room for the "+=0" vote option dest.firstChild.innerHTML += '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;'; // add the vote buttons div to the cell at the right dest.insertBefore (node, dest.firstChild); // appendChild (no +de); //alert ('index (' + i + ') class (' + class + ') dest.innerHT +ML (' + dest.innerHTML + ')'); } } </script>

Things to be improved:

  • Only moves radio buttons in replies, not in the node displayed at the top.
  • The text +=0 appears on its own line, instead of being at the right of its radio button (not an issue for some users). I don't know how to fix that. (Update: if the cell includes the option [select], it gets wide enough and this problem doesn't happen). (Update, more than one year later: it just struck me that adding a couple of &nbsp;s to the [reply] link would be enough to widen the cell and make room for the +=0, thereby fixing the bug.
