Welcome fellow deviants!
So, we have the V7, and everyone is happy, right? Update! rehael.deviantart.com/journal/…
(OverSplinter!), new scipt, for new times. Also changed the devArt-v7-FullView script to proide only fullview. Search bar is in Sticky Menu
, so please use the official solution from now on.Update! rehael.deviantart.com/journal/…
(Sneak preview) of a little something
Look at hq
blog post hq.deviantart.com/blog/3240499…
(The Search Bar returns and new Splinter Mode!). The scripts presented below should be not needed anymore.
Still, we're waiting for several small changes, like full view
, but I hope all issues will be resolved soon.
Anyway, for historical records, I'm leaving the content of this entry for future genrations. PS:
but if you really miss the MessageCenter2Go dropdowns, you should know I miss them too, and might be working on update, to make it playing well with Splintered menu. Watch this space!
Rrright, nice joke. We've lost our precious search bar
, the full view
is just another thumbnail, and the message indicator
wait, what message indicator? devArt features
missing Yay! It's back in Stick Menu!
missing, use Splintered menu, or/and use MessageCenter2Go modified by me
Full View missing, use my script
Ok, wanna see something?
This is how it looks like now on my screen, when some Greasemonkey scripting magic came to work. Interested? read below.
So that day the V7 came I took my
, and looked under the devArt hood. First warning:
these script you are gonna see came as a quick fixes for my problems. I can't guarantee they will work for you you have been warned.
First, I fixed the Message Center 2 Go
script made by bentomlin
to enable it for V7. His original creation is here:
My fixed version, working with V7, you can find here to./45ia
Second, I missed the search bar
and real full view
and for these two things I made this little script, which you can find here to./45i6
Works for me, your mileage may vary. YOU INSTALL THIS ON YOUR OWN! And now, a little FAQ. What do I need to install these scripts?
You need to have latest Firefox, and latest Greasemonkey addon. How do I install it?
Follow this simple tutorial
. Tutorial: installing Greasemonkey scripts
as these scripts were tested under Firefox, you should have Firefox as your browser getFirefox
you should also have Greasemonkey you'll find it here: a.m.o:Greasemonkey
when you have them both, up and running (see the little monkey face in your browser's status bar? Good, it's Greasemonkey!)
you can now click the link for the script of your choice:
Message counters to./45ia
Fullview and Search bar to./45i6
a page filled with code should open hit F5 to refresh;
now, Greasemonkey kicks in a window should open, asking you, if you wish to install the script accept it;
look at the status bar Greasemonkey should report the script got installed;
rightclick on the monkey head, choose Manage scripts
(alternatively middleclick on the monkey);
on the list you should see the installed script;
now, go to any deviantArt page, and just to be sure, hit F5 (refresh);
and you're done! The bar at the top should change a couple of seconds after all elements of the page get loaded. OMG! It works! How can I thank you?!
Share the news with others.But if you're reeeealy that generous I have a wishlist
];-> Does it work in [insert your browser name here]
Frankly, I don't have any idea. It works in Firefox 3.6.3 with Greasemonkey 0.8.20100408.6 that's my setup. It should work in Flock with Greasemonkey, or any other browser based on Gecko engine with Greasemonkey. It might work in latest Chrome, but I didn't checked. Opera? No idea. IE8? I'm pretty sure it won't work there. I don't like it. How can I remove the script?
You're into V7? Great! Just rightclick the monkey head, choose Manage scripts
(alternatively middleclick on the monkey), highlight the script you wish to delete, and hit the Uninstall
button. That's it! I have a question not covered in this FAQ what should I do?
Oh, c'mon! Ask in the comments! I have an idea what should I do?!
Share it in the comments! I really read every one comment. I don't promise I'll introduce your idea in the script I don't have much free time, sorry. But I'll think about it, if it's good.
PS: No need to thank me
just share the
and point more people to this scripts (in comments, in journals, on dAMN, forums, etc). And keep your fingers crossed for the devTeamdevart
to bring the features we want to the site we love.
