Google Groups KillFile 3.5 Released

So Tim has been kind enough to address a number of bugs and add some great new features to the KillFile.

When you bring up the KillFile you can now

“Click X to reanimate the dead”
“Click Y to edit the filter”
“Click Z to edit regular expressions (experts only)”

He also added “Add Address” and “Add Topic” options as well as making it update automatically after pressing ‘X’, ‘Y’, ‘Z’

You can download the new version of the Google Groups KillFile right here. So give it a whirl and let me know how it goes.

Thanks again Tim!

    Thanks for that. I’ve now moved away the file that was linked in my last post so that people don’t install that version by accident.

    Unless you know what you are doing (and even when you do) it can get very confusing with two copies of the same script installed from two different domains.

    Tim.

    Sorry. I’ve messed up there. The script fails miserably when you drill into a thread.

    You need this patch – moving one line

    I think I uploaded an old version of my script.
