Flickr modifies start page – and makes life harder


There used to be a “Recent activity” and “Comments you’ve made” link, which has since been replaced with a recent activity page which merges the two pages.

Here are 2 solutions.

If you have Firefox, and you prefer having the two separate links:

  • Install Greasemonkey. This allows you customise the way a webpage displays using Javascript
  • Install the Greasemonkey script (the link directly to the JS file is in the image-description)

Now you should have something like this:

In fact, all this script does for you is create 2 links right next to the Flickr logo with the following links (this will work without Firefox):

For recent activity

For comments you’ve made

So you could just bookmark those and avoid the Greasemonkey script all together.
