For those who haven’t seen.
The Return of Missing e
After an arduous effort to modify the Missing e extension it is finally ready.
In order to operate amid the obligations set forth by Tumblr’s various agreements and terms, Missing e will no longer interact with the Tumblr API in any way, favouring alternate techniques in order to continue to provide you with almost all of the great features you have come to love.
Please note that it is possible that I may need to continue negotiating with Tumblr if they do not agree with my interpretation of their policies and agreements. If anything should change, I will keep you posted on the Missing e Tumblr blog.
Almost all features unaffected!
The only noticeable difference in how the features work is in Timestamps. Unfortunately, timestamps will no longer be added to posts on the Tumblr dashboard. However, timestamps will continue to be displayed on unanswered ask messages and privately answered asks.
All other features will continue to work as normal, with a couple of exceptions noted below. Please note that features that have been adapted to function without the Tumblr API are not as well-tested. There may be some rough patches, but I will strive to provide timely updates to fix any problems that come up.
Other features fixed!
- The wrap tags feature has been fixed to work with Tumblr’s new tag implementation.
- The Better Reblogs feature will now allow you to control whether or not your tags get reblogged.
Find these and more in the Missing e settings page. Find out how to get there!
Follow Checker and Unfollower no longer available!
The Follow Checker and Unfollower features, though much-loved by many users, will no longer be a part of Missing e. These features were the most significant perpetrators of a technique called “page scraping”, an arguably bad web practice that can strain a website’s server infrastructure.
Neither of these features is likely to return in any form. Please understand that, though useful, these features represent only a small fraction of all the great options available as part of Missing e.
Some of Missing e’s features tweak the way the Tumblr interface is presented to you. However, none of them hide, block or otherwise remove any promotional or informational content intended to be viewed by users.
By downloading, installing, using or continuing to use Missing e, you agree to the terms and conditions set forth in the Missing e End User License Agreement. I cannot be held responsible for any action taken by any other party with respect to your use of Missing e.
Update or Install Missing e
If you currently have Missing e installed and want the new version immediately, DO NOT uninstall and reinstall Missing e, instead read the instructions on how to update:
Firefox users: There seems to be some trouble getting the Add-On site re-enabled. In the meantime, try this direct link: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/128930/missing_e-2.0.0-fx.xpi
New users or users who previously uninstalled Missing e can go to missinge.infraware.ca to install it. Simply click on the logo for the browser you use.
Thanks to thefrogman for the celebratory image!
