This new page is currently undergoing modifications. The information presented should be considered a draft, not yet ready for use. This content is open to changes from anyone during construction. If you would like to make changes or have questions, please post a message in this forum.

A bookmarklet is a bookmark stored in a web browser that contains JavaScript commands to extend the browser's functionality through a single mouse click. For instance, a bookmarklet might enable the user to select an editor username on a page, click the bookmarklet, and be taken directly to the private message page with the username already entered.

Adding to a browser

Chrome

These instructions have not yet been verified for Chrome.
  • Left click on the Chrome menu button in the upper right corner of your browser. (three horizontal bars)
  • Left click on "Bookmarks"
  • Left click on "Bookmark Manager"
  • In the left window pane, navigate to where you want to add the bookmarklet.
  • In the main window pane, right click to see the context menu.
  • Left click on "Add page"
  • In the "Name" box, enter "Wazer Profile" or any name you prefer for the new bookmarklet.
  • In the "URL" box, paste the code your previously copied.

While other methods exist, this method should always work.

Firefox

  • Ensure the Bookmarks toolbar is visible with a Right-click in a blank area of the Firefox tab row or menu bar area. Alternately you can open the Bookmarks window with Ctrl-B.
  • Right-click the bookmark bar or window and select New Bookmark.
  • Enter a name for the bookmarklet in the Name field.
  • The Location field is where you copy and paste the javascript code from one of the code boxes below. Be sure to include everything from the code box.
  • The other fields are not required. Press Add to save the changes.
  • Repeat the process for each bookmarklet desired.

Defined scripts

The following bookmarklet scripts could be helpful to map editors. Following the instructions above for adding a bookmarklet based on your browser, select the code below with your mouse, highlighting all the code inside the box. Use that code to paste into the bookmark as the target or location.

Formatted (viewable) code can be seen on the talk page.

Map editing

Open Waze Map Editor from LiveMap

This script opens a window with Waze Map Editor when currently viewing LiveMap.

javascript:(function(){var center_lonlat=new OpenLayers.LonLat(wazeMap.center.lon,wazeMap.center.lat);center_lonlat.transform(new OpenLayers.Projection('EPSG:900913'),new OpenLayers.Projection('EPSG:4326'));var mapZoom=(window.location.hostname=='world.waze.com'?(wazeMap.zoom<5?(wazeMap.zoom<2?wazeMap.zoom+6:wazeMap.zoom+5):9):(wazeMap.zoom<5?wazeMap.zoom+11:15));window.open('http://'+window.location.hostname+'/livemap/?zoom='+mapZoom+'&lon='+center_lonlat.lon+'&lat='+center_lonlat.lat,'LiveMap')})();

A drag-n-drop link can be copied from this dropbox page (AlanOfTheBerg's dropbox).

Open LiveMap from Waze Map Editor

This script opens a window with Live Map when currently viewing Waze Map Editor.

javascript:(function(){var center_lonlat=OpenLayers.Layer.SphericalMercator.inverseMercator(g_map.getCenter().lon,g_map.getCenter().lat);var mapZoom=(window.location.hostname=='www.waze.com'?(g_map.zoom>6?(g_map.zoom>7?g_map.zoom-5:g_map.zoom-6):0):(g_map.zoom>10?g_map.zoom-11:0));window.open('http://'+window.location.hostname+'/editor/?zoom='+mapZoom+'&lon='+center_lonlat.lon+'&lat='+center_lonlat.lat,'Waze Map Editor')})();

Custom location scripts

If you know of a script for a specific area, please add it to this list or request help from this forum for it to be added.

Set segment locks in area

This script will set the lock rank on various segment types in the visible area of the WME. Current configuration listed:

  • It will only update up to 150 segments
  • It only modifies what can be modified by the user's current rank and area
  • It will not lower a rank less than it is currently set
  • Freeways and Ramps are set to 4
  • Major Highways are set to 3
  • Minor Highways are set to 2
  • Primary Streets are set to 2
javascript:(function(){var fwy_lvl=3;var rmp_lvl=3;var maj_lvl=2;var min_lvl=1;var pri_lvl=1;var absolute=false;var count=0;Object.forEach(W.model.segments.objects,function(k,v){if(count<150&&v.onScreen()&&v.isGeometryEditable()){if(v.attributes.roadType==3&&(v.attributes.lockRank<fwy_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=fwy_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new Waze.Action.UpdateSegmentDetails(v,{lockRank:fwy_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==4&&(v.attributes.lockRank<rmp_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=rmp_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new Waze.Action.UpdateSegmentDetails(v,{lockRank:rmp_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==6&&(v.attributes.lockRank<maj_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=maj_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new Waze.Action.UpdateSegmentDetails(v,{lockRank:maj_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==7&&(v.attributes.lockRank<min_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=min_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new Waze.Action.UpdateSegmentDetails(v,{lockRank:min_lvl}))}if(v.attributes.roadType==2&&(v.attributes.lockRank<pri_lvl||(absolute&&v.attributes.lockRank!=pri_lvl))){count++;W.model.actionManager.add(new Waze.Action.UpdateSegmentDetails(v,{lockRank:pri_lvl}))}}})})();

User information and communication

Create private message to user

This script will use the mouse-selected (highlighted) text on the page to prepare a private message page with the username already populated. If you don't highlight a username, the script will ask for one to be entered.

javascript:(function(){var s='';if(window.getSelection){s=window.getSelection()}else if(document.getSelection){s=document.getSelection()}else if(document.selection){s=document.selection.createRange().text}if(s==""){var s=prompt("Enter Username for sending PM (or highlight name before selecting bookmarklet).")}if((s!="")&&(s!=null)){window.location.href="http://www.waze.com/forum/ucp.php?i=pm&mode=compose&username="+s}})();

Display user's forum posts

This script will use the mouse-selected (highlighted) text on the page to display the user's forum posts. If you don't highlight a username, the script will ask for one to be entered.

Once on that page, selecting any entry of the user's name will move to the user's forum profile data.

javascript:(function(){var s='';if(window.getSelection){s=window.getSelection()}else if(document.getSelection){s=document.getSelection()}else if(document.selection){s=document.selection.createRange().text}if(s==""){var s=prompt("Enter Username to view forum posts (or highlight name before selecting bookmarklet).")}if((s!="")&&(s!=null)){window.location.href="http://www.waze.com/forum/search.php?keywords=&terms=all&sv=0&sc=1&sf=all&sr=posts&sk=t&sd=d&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search&author="+s}})();

Display user's Wiki page

This script will use the mouse-selected (highlighted) text on the page to display the user's Wiki page. If you don't highlight a username, the script will ask for one to be entered.

javascript:(function(){var s='';if(window.getSelection){s=window.getSelection()}else if(document.getSelection){s=document.getSelection()}else if(document.selection){s=document.selection.createRange().text}if(s==""){var s=prompt("Enter Username for Wiki user page (or highlight name before selecting bookmarklet).")}if((s!="")&&(s!=null)){window.location.href="http://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:"+s}})();

Display user's Wiki contributions

This script will use the mouse-selected (highlighted) text on the page to display the user's Wiki contributions. If you don't highlight a username, the script will ask for one to be entered.

javascript:(function(){var s='';if(window.getSelection){s=window.getSelection()}else if(document.getSelection){s=document.getSelection()}else if(document.selection){s=document.selection.createRange().text}if(s==""){var s=prompt("Enter Username for Wiki contributions (or highlight name before selecting bookmarklet).")}if((s!="")&&(s!=null)){window.location.href="http://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/"+s}})();
