:star:What's this?
This is a greasemonkey script for deviantArt Messaging Network. It adds the functionality to quickly access the main page /gallery /journal /latest deviation etc using a few short commands.


:star:Ok but why do I need it?
I found it very useful, and I use it very often ever since I made it.
I can only suggest it to you, and you can uninstall it if you don't find it useful.


:star:Ok I want to give it a try. How do I install it?
In order to use it, you must be using Mozilla or Mozilla Firefox, and you must have the Greasemonkey extension installed.
Next, click
INSTALL SCRIPT
to install the (newer) script and a greaseMonkey script installation window will open. To install the script press the "Install" button.
And that's it. Read the commands section to learn how it's used.


:star:Commands
Simply type the command into the chat's inputbox.

:bulletgreen:/da deviant - Opens a link to the deviant's deviantArt main page in a new window.
:bulletgreen:/dab deviant - Opens a form for buying a subscription for the deviant.
:bulletgreen:/daf deviant - Opens the deviant's list of watchers (friends).
:bulletgreen:/dag deviant - Opens the deviant's gallery in a new window.
:bulletgreen:/dah or /da? - Shows the script info and a list of all the commands. (Suggested by archaeobibliologist)
:bulletgreen:/daj deviant - Opens the journal page for the deviant in a new window.
:bulletgreen:/dal deviant - Opens the deviant's latest deviation in a new window.
:bulletgreen:/dam - Opens your message centre in a new window.
:bulletgreen:/dan deviant - Creates a new note to deviant(other than you) in a new window.
:bulletgreen:/dap deviant - Opens a new window with the deviant's store front (prints).
:bulletgreen:/dar - Opens a random deviant page in a new window. (Suggested by deviantARCADE)
:bulletgreen:/das search_string - Opens a new window and searches the deviantArt for the search_string.
:bulletgreen:/dat deviant - Opens a new window with the deviant's scraps (trash - not a good word but easy to memorize).


:star:Example usage
/dal ArtBIT
-will open my latest deviation in a new window
/das short story by:ArtBIT in:flash
-will search the dA and open one result, my Short Story About Love

I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. Cheers.

And it doesn't work in FF3. It breaks the chat, in fact. :(

Works quite well, I think the /dan deviant will be most useful :)

Awesome idea - I use shortcuts like this in firefox using bookmark keywords ('g bing' will search bing on google for instance), so I like your script plenty :nod:

Is it possible to have them open in new tabs though? From memory greasemonkey has a special function you can call that opens urls in new tabs - something to look into perhaps? I just figure opening new windows defeats the purpose of using firefox y'know? ;p

:thumbsup:

Yeah bookmark keywords, I use them too, that's where I got the idea from :nod:
And the links are opened in a new tab, wrong choice of words, my bad, I will amend that soon...

Cheers mate :salute:
