Lightbulb [20-Dec-11] XDA Toolbar for Chrome v1.7

The XDA Toolbar Chrome Extension has now been published on the Chrome Web Store.

Features
  • Hide signatures, either all, none, or user-by-user.
  • Toggle thread posts full size or minimal.
  • Limit image size to 200x200, 300x300 or 400x400 or custom a amount of pixels max (can then be toggled original and reduced).
  • Shrink/expand toolbar to keep it out of the way of normal activities.

Please post any feedback, requests, questions or bug reports and I'll get back to you.

Please Note: The current extension only works on the XDA 2010 scheme. Making it work for XDA Classic is one of the things to do in the future.




Download the Chrome Extension here


Future Plans
  • Convert and test in Firefox, as per the previous version.
  • Add a "go to top" button to take you to the top of the forum or thread.
  • Add an optional confirmation to the thanks button for those of us who sometimes click it when we mean to click the quote button!
  • Add an option so you can see who's signatures you are hiding and be able to stop hiding without having to find a post.
  • Add an option to automatically pad posts to make them tall enough for the info box on the left (some flags end up in the post below, with or without signatures).
  • Add an option to show "basic" stripped-down posts.
  • Add a bookmarks menu so that you can bookmark forums and threads in the toolbar rather than your browser.

SigToggle Users
Users who have the previous "Signature Toggle" extension installed, please uninstall it before using the XDA Toolbar as the two will conflict. You can do this by going to tools, extensions and removing the old version.

Unfortunately, in an effort to future-proof the settings made with the toolbar the old settings are now incompatible, so you will now see any signatures that you had previously hidden. This will not happen with future versions.



Known issues
Youtube vids are still sitting over the toolbar sometimes.
None of the updates that the toolbar performs take place after replying to a thread.

Added "Jump to top of page" button.
Added hints to toolbar buttons.

Do you want me to put loads of "I promise not to screw with any of your data" statements in the 1st post?

I've got no problems posting the code if people are curious. It's just some simple javascript.

I want to be sure about it before posting it somewhere more public, hence the request for testers.

I'm actually thinking of making it a general XDA extension with lots of other options, but I'll see how this goes first.

Actually it does, but just not on the 1st post. That's something for me to iron out - thanks

Ok, ok, ok...................it only works on specific posts. E.G: I just toggled your signature (no homo) on your last post but in the OP nothing happened
