But the lists are nowhere to be found, that is they're in 7 pages in helter-skelter order and if I click on one it just goes to that list and random movies show up in weird colors but I don't see any list name graying out and have no idea how to get 2 lists on the same page anyhow. Can I click them from the progress page? I'm totally confused.
bobbybrown made a simple animation that demonstrates how to do it, maybe that'll make it clearer? Once you've activated "list Cross-reference" in the settings of the script, you should see the button "Activate CR" like in the animation below whenever you're on the main page for all the official lists. Then select the lists (like in the animation, they turn this gray-blue color) and then click the tab, verify that it's the right lists selected and click "Cross-reference". The script will cross reference and display the results (this is not shown in the animation).
It only works if the lists you select are on the same page, so the "official lists" pages are not ideal (you can, however, sort them to some degree by using the "Order by" feature on the top right of the list). I read up on it, and it turns out that the script will run on any one page that has lists, so you can use your "favorite lists" and "lists watchlist" as well (here
, respectively). Or even your "list dislike" page if you want. Just add the lists to your faves or watchlist and then use the script on that page to cross reference. That way you get around the "multiple pages" limitation of the script.
Unfortunately, you can't run the script on the progress page (this page
Also I don't know what the "hide" thing does - would love to hide all the IMDb lists - can I?
The "hide tags" feature just hides the tags lists display whenever you look at a list page, it's not to hide lists. However, bobbybrown made a special edition of the script in late May (only a little over a month ago) which he called "ICM Enhanced ++" (adding to themagician's original script) that has just that feature! It's pretty schweet. If you want that feature, you will have to uninstall your current script and install "ICM Enhanced ++" instead (as far as I know you don't lose any features by switching).
It's simple to do: In the location bar of Firefox write "about:addons" (without the quotes). Click the "User Scripts" tab to the left (with the big monkey face) Select "iCheckMovies Enhanced" and click the "Remove" button. Poof, gone. Then go here
and click the bottom attachment link ("icmepp.18.104.22.168.1.js"). Once again a yellow top bar should show up telling you that it's a Greasemonkey script, click the install button, confirm that you want to - and you've just upgraded your script! You may have to once again go to "about:addons" to "enable" the script (I had to when I installed it), but other than that, you're good to go.
Back on iCM, select ICM Enhanced from the dropdown menu, select "ICME ++: Progress page" and uncheck "Show IMDb". No more IMDb lists to clutter up your progress page!
You may also have to "enable" the Cross-reference feature again, it might not "carry over" from your previous script, so please check that as well before you try the cross-referencing again with the new script.
