   78: <h2 class="page-header">quickFilters :: homepage</h2>
   80: <p>This is a new extension of mine that extends some of the new filter behavior already seen in QuickFolders and brings it to the folder tree. 
   81: It can be used independantly of, or in conjunction with quickFolders.</p>
   83: <a name='messageFilterAssistant'> 
   84: <h3>The Filter Assistant</h3>
   85: </a>
   86: <p>
   87: With this, it is very easy to create new filters very quickly. 
   88: </p>
   89: <p>I actually invested 2 weeks of work over the last Christmas Holidays in order to write the "Filter Wizard"; this will 
   90: prefill the destination folder for you after you have dragged the email into one of the folders in the folder tree.
   91: </p>
   92: <ol>
   93: 	<li> Click on the quickFilters button on the main toolbar<br/>
   94: 	<img class="screenshot" src="img/quickFilters-ToolbarButton.png" alt="main menu: filter assistant">
   96: 	<li>The button will change depicting a glowing wheel instead of the mail icon and there will be sliding notification:<br/>
   97: 	<img class="screenshot" src="img/quickFilters-Notification.png" alt="filter notification" title="filter notification assistant">
   99: 	<li>Drag an email into a folder on the left hand folder tree. This will trigger the Create Filter Assistant.<br/>
  100: 	<img class="screenshot" src="img/quickFilters-Assistant.png" alt="filter wizard" title="filter wizard">
  102: 	<li>select a template (e.g. "based on Sender") and click [Create Filter...] - in the example I have pulled an email into the QuickFolders folder.
  103: 	See below for a detailed description.  
  105: 	<li>Next, the Edit Filter dialog is displayed - as you can see it already tries to "guess" what  you want the filter to do when it should be applied, 
  106: 	<u>based on the email that you dragged to the folder</u>:<br/>
  107: 	<img class="screenshot" src="img/filter-Rules.png" alt="filter rules">
  108: 	<br/>Since in this case I chose "Based on Sender", it will pull all conversations from and to <i></i> into the QuickFolders folder. 
  109: 	No need to select the folder (as it has been done automatically) or to enter any condition (this is based on the template that you have chosen).
  111: 	<li>Now tweak the filter as usual and click Ok to save it (and try it out in the Filter List)
  112: 	<li>You can also click Cancel to not create the filter
  114: 	<li> in the last step Thundebird's list of filters is shown. <br/>
  115: 	<img class="screenshot" src="img/filters-List.png" alt="list of filters">
  117: 	<li>You can repeat the process from step 2 to create more filters
  119: 	<li>When you're done, click the filter button again to disable "Filter Wizard" mode.
  120: </ol>
  122: <a name='templates'> 
  123: <h3>Filter Templates</h3>
  124: </a>
  125: <p>This section describes the different patterns used to create filters based on the dragged email. 
  126: I will probably add more templates in future, if I get good requests from the users. 
  127: Simply head over to the <a href="bugs.html">bugs section</a> to suggest new templates.
  128: <br/>
  129: <h4>Based on Sender (from)</h4>
  130: <p>Probably the most used pattern: this will retrieve the sender's email address and paste it into the from and to filter conditions fields.
  131: This way a whole conversation with the sender will be moved to the new folder.
  132: </p>
  133: <h4>Based on Recipient (to)</h4>
  134: <p>Similar to "Based on Sender": use this when you mark an email you have sent yourself to somebody 
  135: - this will the recpient's email address and paste it into the from and to filter conditions fields.
  136: This way a whole conversation to and from the the sender will be moved to the new folder.
  137: </p>
  138: <h4>Mailing List</h4>
  139: <p>
  140: Similar to Based on Sender, but it doesn't fill the 'to' condition field.
  141: </p>
  142: <h4>Subscriptions - By Subject [Keyword]</h4>
  143: <p>
  144: This will look for special "bracketed" expressions, e.g. [amo-editors] or {Mozilla} and create a filter condition based on these; a lot of
  145: mass email is set up using this pattern, so it is really easy to use.
  146: </p>
  147: <h4>By Tags</h4>
  148: <p>
  149: Uses the tags of the email and adds them as filter conditions.
  150: </p>
  153: <a name='messageFilterList'> 
  154: <h3>The Message Filter List</h3>
  155: </a>
  157: <p>
  158: I also created additional functions that I added to the filter list dialog - I created these after it had
  159: become a simple thing to create many filters (as the list became too long to handle without the search function). 
  160: </p>
  161: <img src="img/messageFilters-5.png" alt="Message Filters: new features"/><br/>
  162: <p>The biggest new feature here is the addition of a Search box, which allows filtering the number of results</p>
  163: <p>Also you can now move the filter to the top of the bottom of the list. This is actually significant as the 
  164: order you see on screen is the same as the order in which the filters are executed. This also means, if a filter
  165: on the top moves a message from the inbox then the filters below will not get a chance to execute on this message;
  166: as the filters are only executed on messages in the inbox, they will simply be ignored. Therefore it is very important 
  167: that it remains easy to re-order the relative positions of the filters. This also works while the search box is active.</p>
  170: <h3><a name="other">My other Extensions - highly recommended</a></h3>
  171: <br/>
  173: <h4 class="QuickFolders">QuickFolders</h4>
  174: <p>
  175: <a href="">QuickFolders</a>
  176: (Thunderbird / Postbox) takes the pain out of working with many mail folders; has currently 22,000 daily users and the top rated message reading extensions.<br>
  177: </p>
  179: <h4 class="ZombieKeys">Zombie Keys</h4>
  180: <p>
  181: <a href="">Zombie Keys for Firefox / SeaMonkey</a> ; 
  182: <a href="">Zombie Keys for Thunderbird / Postbox</a>
  183: <br>
  184: <p>Entering European languages (which include diacritics (accented characters, diaeresis, umlauts, etc.), ligatures, the Euro sign, etc.) 
  185: into Mozilla applications using a non-native keyboards doesn't have to be a pain any more! 
  186: </p>
  188: <h4 class="QuickPasswords">QuickPasswords</h4>
  189: <p>
  190: <a href="">QuickPasswords for Firefox / SeaMonkey</a>;
  191: <a href="">QuickPasswords for Thunderbird / Postbox</a>
  192: <br>
  193: this is a very neat and quick way to retrieve and use a growing number
  194: of passwords, without displaying them on screen or having to re-type them. 
  195: Also supports renaming of multiple passwords!
