Changes in this release:
- Fixed: hidden FBP link in top nav bar as it was hidden for some users.
- Fixed: changing top nav bar colour and background image options, as it was broken for some users
- Fixed: some issues with the Hide “Auto Tag Suggestions” option
- Fixed: some issues with the Experimental option “Apply newsfeed filters to ticker”
- Fixed: the flickering caused when the “Show Full Date/Time on Posts” option is turned on
- New: Added a hide “Profile Hovercards” option (Located under the “More Options” heading. It hides the popup info boxes that appear when you hover over a Username/User icon or Page name/Page Icon
- New: Added an option to hide “Live Video” stories from the newsfeed. (Live video posts start with the text “person x is live now” or “person x was live”. The option is under the “Video Stories” heading. Please note that Live Video posts from celebrities are posted by a Facebook App called “Mentions” so they will be filtered out by FBP’s Game & App filter option. If you want to see posts from the “Mentions” App, you just need to whitelist it. You can do this by adding the Application ID for Mentions: 800871226593160 to the FBP “App Whitelist” manually, or you can click the “WL” link on any posts from the Mentions app that show up under the Apps filter. Please note if you don’t see the option to hide “Live Video” in your version of FBP, you just need to re-install as this was a late addition to FBP 14.2.
- New: Added an option to hide the “Suggest Edits” link in the left column
- New: Added a check to see if the FB language setting is not English and if thats the case, explain that FBP works better when the FB language setting is set to English
- Updated: Renamed “Trending Articles” newsfeed filter option to “Trending Stories” and fixed it so it filters out trending stories from the newsfeed.
- Updated: “Fix External links” code to work better.
- Updated: The “show Logout Button” option, located under the “Top Nav Bar Options” heading, should now work faster and show up more reliably
- Known Issue: If you have the “Expand News Column” option turned on, sometimes the text in the newsfeed will stretch too far, and go off the screen, I am aware of this bug, and am trying to figure out how to fix it, until then, you can simply turn this option off for the fix.
Install / Update the latest version of FB Purity by clicking the green “Install FB Purity” button on the FB Purity Install Page
Tip for Google Chrome users who are having problems updating FBP: Tick the “Developer Options” box button on the Extension management page, then click “Update Extensions Now” button. Please note this won’t work if your version of FBP says “Not From Chrome Webstore” next to it due to a bug in chrome. If it says that, you need to either update it manually via the instructions on the FBP install page, or else export your FBP settings (see user guide on how to do this) then uninstall FBP, then reinstall it via the green “Install FB Purity” button, then import your FBP settings you exported previously. After doing that FBP should be able to auto-update in future.
