Gmail Smart-Delete Button Ver. 0.3.8 Released!

Gmail has started redirecting users to a different URL:

Version 0.3.8 Modifies the script's INCLUDE statement to include this new URL:
// @include http*://*mail.google.com/*mail/*

Simply install version 0.3.8 and you are done.

Alternately, you can change the include statements in GreaseMonkey's Options panel. Delete all existing include strings and add the string:

Download version 0.3.8 here: Gmail Smart-Delete Button
[To install, right-click the above link & choose 'Install User Script...' from context menu.]

Keep those comments and suggestions coming!
I'll try to implement any useful (and reasonable) suggestions you come up with.
Check back often for updates!

maybe not the right place to ask, but would it be possible to add a keyboard shortcut (e.g. "D") or at least a keyboard accelerator (e.g. "Alt+D" for this script?)

While it would not be too difficult to 'wrap' the part of the script that draws the delete button with a conditional clause that is toggled with a key combination, the 'script' technically would still be enabled since the code to detect keystrokes would need to continue to run.

The functionality of enabling / disabling scripts is better left to GreaseMonkey itself as each script would not need to implement / debug / troubleshoot / maintain such code.

GM already offers the ability to enable / disable a script from its options dialog. Simply select the script in question and uncheck the 'enabled' checkbox.

I don't really see a good reason to have this functionality tied to a keyboard shortcut, though. Why would one need to enable / disable a script repeatedly enough to justify it?

i'm guessing that the poster was asking for a keyboard shortcut for deleting mail -- not for enabling/disabling the smart-delete script. this script takes the gmail delete from 3 clicks to 1, but adding a keyboard shortcut would be even better (for those of us who prefer not to use the mouse at all).

thanks for the script.

I must have preoccupied when I answered. Sorry. Yes that would be nice to have. I'll look into it & see if it can be done.
