  • Fixed: Fixed “BA” (Block App) + “WL” (Whitelist) links not showing up on App posts
  • Fixed: “Revert Bubble Chat” option.
  • Fixed: Fixed gap in newsfeed when browser window is resized smaller
  • Fixed: Fixed Vimeo and Soundcloud and ReverbNation links. Stopped them opening twice (once in the feed and once in a new tab) when the “Fix External Links” option is selected.

  • New: ‘Hide “Find New Groups” link’ in hide left column links options
  • Changed: Removed the “TL” (single column timeline) toggle button, as Facebook Fan Pages are transitioning to a single column news layout by default. However for people who are not yet seeing the new Timeline layout for pages, you can still access the single column timeline option, via the FBP options screen, under the “Timeline Options” heading.

P.S. Some people have been asking how to hide the “smart” friend lists that facebook automatically creates for you, in the left hand column. I made a short video that shows how you can hide those, using FB Purity’s Custom CSS feature. You will need to view it full screen to see it clearly:

Theres also a lot of pre-made Custom CSS on the FB Purity CSS page, that gives you some examples and other useful code to work with too.

Happy New Year From FB Purity!

FB Purity the Facebook Filter that lets you Customize Facebook the way you want it

Get FB Purity and make using Facebook more fun and less of a chore

F.B. Purity Beta v9.4.0 – 31st December 2013

Happy New Year Everyone!

I’ve been hard at work on a new version of FB Purity v9.4.0, which has some bug fixes and new features, see below for the full details:

Changes Summary:

  • New: Option to show full date/time stamps below posts
  • New: Added hide “List Suggestions” option to “Hide Right Column Links” options
  • New: Hide “People You May Know” box option
  • New: Timeline Section on options screen, featuring “hide likes boxes”,”hide games + apps”,”hide invite friends”, “hide the nagging questions”
  • New: Added a “F.B. Purity News” link to the left hand column, for easier access to the FBP Fan page. (I didnt have time to add a hide option for this, but you can hide it with Custom CSS if you really dont like it, though i would urge you not to hide it, as I will be making it an active link to show when the FBP Fan page has new posts. As at present news from the FBP fan page only gets seen by less that 10% of the total number of fans of the page due to Facebooks restrictions)
  • Fixed: Display glitch with the disable autoplay video functionality when opening video in “theater” mode
  • Fixed: Restore Comment Button functionality (also fixed attach image when restore comment button option is enabled)
  • Fixed: The FBP info bar not showing on some friends/interests list pages
  • Changed: Moved the chat options to a separate section of the options screen.

* Current Known Issues *

  • When using the “R” key to re-sort the newsfeed, it sometimes shows duplicate stories in the feed. However, if you press the “R” key again, it will remove the duplicates.
