Hacking LibraryThing

Hacking LibraryThing is a place to share and talk about use of various plugins and techniques to modify and customize the LibraryThing experience. Want a place to post a snippet of your Greasemonkey script that replaces all images of users with timspalding's smiling face? Post it here. Got something that solves that annoying Touchstone bug where it never expands? Start a conversation about it here.

Most hacks consist of Greasemonkey scripts, but there are some Stylish addons for doing less complex restyling. These scripts can be used with browser addons for Firefox and Chrome. To a lesser extent they may also work with other browsers like Opera and Safari or on mobile devices. Internet Explorer is generally a non-starter for such modifications. It's also usually best to have an up-to-date version of the browser as hacks may not work on older browsers.
