I'm not comfortable with what you wrote (yet). The easy route for me--right now--is to keep doing it the way that i know. I wonder though, which method works in more browsers (and versions) that support scripting?

Right now, i want to add a Home button to Memrise after a course review (maybe even during a review) or learning session. The top bar changes and it takes extra clicks to get home, even when the session is over.

(Source not shown to do "Filter error: Please use fewer 'junk' characters." And to think, /. used to be for geeks.)

So, the easy way out might be:

var review = document.getElementById('gardening-area');
review....= (add button here) + review.....;

What would you do?

I'm a quickie editor when something annoys me enough, so, i don't feel like learning it extensively, though admittedly, it'd be nice.

I ought to come back to this post before writing a new script though. Maybe some more interest will help me appreciate this information a lot more.

Thank you!

All you have to do is read the graphic they posted on the site.

It's pretty shallow to think they're motivated by betrayal. The people behind the site appear to also run other sites that promote prostitution and human trafficking, and they even extort money from their own customers to protect their privacy by charging a fee to have personal information removed (which as we all know is probably not actually happening - those sites probably never delete anything unless it's to protect their own ass). The media doesn't seem to be showing the whole side of the story and just claiming this is about the ashleymadison site when it's much more than that. This looks like it was some kind of long-term effort to stop a company from profiting from what many might consider to be illegal and immoral activities.

I'm not condoning what the hackers have done, but this appears to be a conflict between two dark groups on the internet. I don't see a good guy here.
