I have a minor problem with links on the archive, and I was wondering if anyone else felt the same way, and if they had come up with a solution. Being a ridiculously picky person, I don't like having a mixture of bookmarks, some to stories in collections, and others that aren't. So I always have to edit the URL to get the non-collection version of a link.

Does anyone know if there is a way to automate that, either something that defaults to taking you to the non-collection version or a button that removes the collection part of the link? I know it's a minor issue, and I can carry on the way I do at the moment, but if there is a solution, I'd be very grateful.

There ought to be a way to use Javascript to create a bookmarklet to do it, but my coding is all cargo-cult, so my attempt once failed miserably. *tracks post*

It can be done with a bookmarklet. Make a new bookmark (to some random page if you can't create an empty one) and then change the location of that bookmark to this code:

javascript:url=window.location.href.replace(/collections\/.*?\//,'');window.location=url;


Now when your're on a work page, you can click that bookmark and it will reload the work without the collection part.

(Dreamwidth doesn't let me post a direct link to the bookmarklet, sorry. If you have a problem creating the bookmark, let me know.)
