helpplz uber - firefox + chrome by famine-star helpplz uber - firefox + chrome by famine-star

add to google chrome


add to firefox (pending review)


The firefox add-on is still pending review on the mozilla site. You can install it early or wait for it to be reviewed by an editor

other browsers - the helpplz website



instructions


1. Click the link above that corresponds to the browser you use. If you use Safari, Opera, or IE I'm not planning to support these browsers, but you can still use [link] .
2. Install the plugin
3. Restart browser if necessary
4. Visit any deviantart page
5. Notice there is a new button on the right edge of the screen that reads 'helpplz'
6. Click the button and a panel will expand. From here you can drag and drop the icons into comments, notes, and chat. You can also search for plz accounts by name.


feature requests


-collapsible search and 'mylist' sections
-folder and sorting for 'mylist' section
-syncing across browsers
-improve the aesthetics
-support more browsers
-support sta.sh
-be able to drag and resize the panel


It's been a while since I've done anything with helpplz, so here's a big update! I've created a new extension for Google Chrome and Firefox that makes both helpplz.info and helpplz inline obsolete. Here are the main features:

-Adds a button to all deviantart pages that opens a floating box where you can browse and search plz accounts.
-Loads more plz accounts as you scroll for seamless browsing
-Drag and drop plz icons into the conversation
-Instantly add your favorite plz accounts to your personal list which is saved on your browser
-Add new and missing plz accounts without leaving the page

This solves many issues with helpplz inline. And when I update the extension you'll be notified by chrome so you can update without having to re-install like you would a user-script.

add to google chrome


add to firefox (pending review)

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-05-23
helpplz uber by ~famine-star is a great, entirely new version of helpplz for Chrome or Firefox, integrating it very well into deviantART to make it convenient to use, and add more plz accounts. Also suggested by =thelasth0pe, =GillianIvy and =NanisKa.

Ah this is so cool, thank you!!
If you ever plan to come back to this or make different versions, I have a request/suggestion :)
One without the search section and simply only the list of plz's that I personally put in there? Or maybe have one tab for just searching, and a separate tab for your personal list of plz's.

Question: Did you think about adding options to change the position of the window like Right or Left or integrate it into the comment box? Just curious. :)

Sorry to bother you, but I think there is something wrong with the Helpplz uber? I have used it for a long time time now in Crome, but just recently it won't show up in a few select chats I go to :/
I've even unintalled it and reintalled, but it remains the same . . . .

Chrome should work now. I've had others confirm that Chrome works. If it doesn't work for you, then make sure that you update to version 1.14 of the add-on. You can force your browser to check for add-on updates by going Tools->Extensions->Developer Mode->Update extensions now. :) Good luck, and let me know if you still have trouble. I'm planning to submit a Firefox update very soon.

Sorry for so many comments. The new "Add Media" funtions seems to support community icons that could replace or be used alongside with plz accounts. Like this for example: Pinkie Pie EyeFlutter
The problem is, that they can't be organized and collected, at least without premium.
Maybe helpplz could use thse sections alongside plz accounts like from those sections like Customization / Emoticons / Chat Friendly Emotes / Medium - up to 50x50 / Animated

Sorry to intrude but I would just like to say that this is my favorite app for dA. It's the entire reason I installed greasemonkey and I use it frequently. I still use it to search for icons, even if I cannot drag them into the new comment boxes. I'm using Firefox myself and while I'd love to see it updated to accommodate dA's latest system, I understand that it is entirely your choice. I'd just like you to know that I do love this app and if you decide to continue updating, that's wonderful, but if not, it's understandable and I thank you for making it in the first place. :)

I really appreciate the comment. It's kind words like that that inspire me to keep developing. I have fixed the Chrome version of the app, and I'm planning to fix the Firefox version soon. Chrome is my primary browser, so it's easier for me to develop for, as for Firefox I have to do more to develop, and then I have to get the update reviewed with the Firefox people before they'll release the update. So I'm done complaining, but the message here is that I'll update Firefox add-on ASAP. Thank you, Zemi :)

It's terrific to hear you have plans to fix it beyond Chrome! I've noticed it still works in chat so I still use it all the time! Don't rush yourself for silly users like me. My main intent was to express how much I enjoy the app, regardless of what dA is doing to glitch it. :)

It might be just me, but I like your app a lot and still find it very useful. With the "Add Media", I don't see how you can organize stuff, or have a personal list with favourites and it doesn't include plz accounts. And it seems to load slower than your app. From what I see it, your app could keep its advantages of the persanal list and fast search engine and include the new advantages of the new feature and make it twice as awesome, if you feel like continueing, of course.

No, thank you for making the app. I use plz-es a lot, so it's really helpful.
I don't know if that helps, but I've notices that you can highlight an icon and then copypaste it and it will be in the right format: :icon...plz: so a solution might be if they were copypasteable in the app

If you use Google Chrome, I pushed a fix last night. You can update your extensions and you should receive the latest version 0.1.14. Let me know if it works (if you use Chrome). If you use Firefox I'll make a fix later this week

Hiya! Deviantart's new "Add Media" seems to have broken the drag and drop function :(

On a side note, it would be great if one was able to reorganize (change positions) and export/import the personal list. Or could you tell me where it is stored? (it got emptied several times, and I don't always remember where I got all the plzes)
