News April 2018: Besides the good old userscript version that you can install from this page, Flickr Fixr is now also available as "native" browser extensions for Google Chrome and for Mozilla Firefox.
Greasemonkey users!: GM4.x doesn't currently support auto-updating userscripts. But you can just install new versions of the userscript on top of a previous - Or you can uninstall the userscript and switch to the new Firefox browser extension which will automatically be updated by the browser when new versions of Flickr Fixr arrives...
Stig's Flickr Fixr makes Flickr more "explorative" and recovers some old lost features of the site.
Current feature list:
Displaying photo-uploads pre-dating March 2012 in big size and nice quality. Up until 2012 Flickr had always updated the full database of photos when new browsing-sizes was introduced on the site. However in May 2012 only photos uploaded after March 2012 was updated when Flickr introduced 1600px and 2048px wide browsing-sizes, leaving the majority of photos to be displayed only 1024px wide, even on modern 24+ inch monitors. Stig’s Flickr Fixr fixes this by scaling and using the original uploaded photo for displaying (when the original is accessible/available).
Album-teaser column on photographers’ frontpage. In one of the big Flickr-updates a couple of years ago, the column to feature a photographer’s albums or collections disappeared and made Flickr less Gallery-like and less inviting for exploration in peoples “backlog”. Yes, there’s a link to albums in top-menu, but I don’t think any casual visitor ever sees or open it. But Stig’s Flickr Fixr puts back a column featuring albums on every photographer's frontpage (photostream). The 10 first albums as sorted in Flickr Organizer are shown in this column.
A photographer’s other photos by tag-links. When hovering the mouse over a photo-tag, Flick Fixr adds an extra direct link to the same photographer's similar tagged photos. Besides saving you a step going through an extra page, Flickr Fixr's tag-hack also works when opening the tag-pages in a new tab/window via right- or ctrl-clicking a tag. Flickr's native way fails here when trying to search the same photographer's photos in a new tab.
Links to album-map and album-comments. On album pages, Stig’s Flickr Fixr adds two extra links on the "album header". One link pointing to a map with current album's photos, and another link pointing to an old hidden/forgotten/deprecated page with album comments. In an earlier version of Flickr album-comments was an official feature. It ain't official anymore, but the old comments page still exists and is also a good page for reading or editing long album-descriptions (I for example, have some old album-descriptions that are complete travel descriptions. They don’t fit well in current official album-layout). Of course, if you chose to leave new album-comments, changes are nobody ever sees them :-/ …
Actually show the geotagged photo on the associated map + Google Maps link. Currently when a photo is geotagged on Flickr you can follow a link to a Flickr map showing the location where the photo was shot. However this map does normally only show the latest or most "interesting" photos in the area. Usually the photo you was looking at is not included on the map or in the image-strip at the bottom of the map. Stig's Flickr Fixr adds the photo you came from to the image-strip, and "opens" the photo. Well, it's a 90% fix: To see exactly where it was geotagged, click twice on this photo in the image-strip to close and re-open it; Now a star pointing to the exact position of the photo appears on the map. Bonus: Now also adds a Google Maps link showing location of a geotagged photo.
"On mouse-over" top-pagers for fast and easy navigation. Are you annoyed by having to scroll to the bottom of photostreams for pagination? Stig's Flickr Fixr adds a pagination-bar above the streams for fast and easy navigation. But because the pager-bar sometimes gets pretty wide and might overlap other icons or dropdowns also placed right above the photostream, the top-pager is hidden until you hover your mouse over the center-area right above the photostream.
Prevent annoying sign-up box popping up when not logged in. If surfing Flickr today without being logged in to the site, you will see a terrible annoying “popup” asking you to sign-up to Flickr. And even though you keep closing it, it keeps coming back whenever you move to a new page. Not very fun, and I don’t understand that anyone (Flickr?) can think this make the site look attractive for potential new users? Anyway, probably not many users of Stig’s Flickr Fixr who surfs Flickr without being logged in, but it was an easy little quick fix to implement.
