Your 'recently added' images are available in the source code of your recently added module on the Home page. They lie between the strings:
</div><br style="clear: both;"></div>
Can this be extracted from the home page and added to the Profile page using Greasemonkey?
But the problem here is that I need to get data that's off a different page other than the one that's loaded. When you're looking at your Profile page, the code would have no idea what was on your Home page under Recently added. So what it'd have to do is initiate a request back to LT to fetch that data. Another unfortunate thing is that even though a lot of the stuff on the Home page is extremely modular (meaning I could request just that section), Recently Added is not.
So what would have to happen is that your profile would load, then the greasemonkey script would kick in (it never does until after the page you're on has loaded) and fetch your Home page in the background. It would rip it apart to get that div (easier than it could be, thanks to that recentbooks_inside id) and re-embed it. All that extra fetching and processing will probably add a delay. This means your profile would show as it is now, then after a second or two, the Recently added box would pop in.
Still, I've left my profile page stagnant for a long while now - if I was really concerned about getting that data showing, I'd update my page on a weekly basis. ;-)
I'm sure this has been requested from TPTB many times in the past, so perhaps we just need to wait another two weeks for it to be implemented as a formal improvement.
Okay, thanks for checking back. I'm not going to do any work on it, then. If you do decide it would be really useful to you, I'd have a go. It would be more work than a lot of greasemonkey scripts, but might be fun.
