deviantTHUMBS:TINY v7 by rotane deviantTHUMBS:TINY v7 by rotane
deviantTHUMBS:TINY – A style that makes the new huge thumbnails small (like they used tobe).

:new: This latest update adds support for the "new new" thumbs grid that was released in June 2016 (and expanded to our personal Galleries and Favourites in January 2017). The fix isn't perfect, by any stretch, but it works. Be aware though that i really like the new big thumbs, so i'm not sure if i'll continue supporting this style for much longer!



FEATURES:

This Style makes the new huge thumbnails small again and less "schizophrenic": It removes the light background on all thumbs, and tweaks a few other things (Verdana instead of Trebuchet, hover effects, margins and paddings, and the like).


NOTES:
  • Special feature:
    Switch to Wall View and have everything left aligned.
    Switch to Grid View and have everything centered. (This does not work anymore with the new thumbs grid.)
  • Film thumbs and Collection/Gallery thumbs are still not perfectly styled, but 100% usable.
  • This style might interfere somewhat with custom Gallery skins, since it changes the deviation title and links.

RELEASE HISTORY:
  • v0.1 (August 25, 2012): Initial release of the new huge thumbnails.
  • v0.1-1 (August 25, 2012): Fix for Lit and Film thumbs.
  • v0.2 (August 25, 2012): Lit thumbs bugfixes again. (Did dA change something?)
  • v0.3 (September 1, 2012): dA just updated the new huge thumbs (that light background is even lighter; but more importantly: panorama thumbs are fixed), so this update takes this into account.
    Also: Proper support for deviations in Storage and Mature Content.
  • v0.4 (September 7, 2012): Bugfix for recent code-update. Thanks for all your reports!
  • v0.4-1 (September 7, 2012): Lit tags are back.
  • v0.4-2 (September 7, 2012): Bugfixes for Grid and Wall views, and panorama thumbs.
  • v0.4-3 (September 7, 2012): Bugfix for panorama/portrait thumbs again. (Really, dA? Again? This is getting tiresome.)
  • v0.4-4 (September 14, 2012): Bugfix for collection/gallery thumbs.
  • v0.5 (October 23, 2012): Bugfix for group galleries' "more" link; small bugfix to lit/journal thumbs.
  • v0.5-1 (March 16, 2013): Bugfix for group galleries' main pages. (Thanks again Fehnwrites for the heads-up!)
  • v0.6 (May 17, 2013): Better way of dealing with shadow-overflow of book-ends. (Which means: better compatibility with Gallery CSS.)
  • v0.7 (August 13, 2013): Bugfix for some MLT pages. (Thanks Arisu-Ami-Chan for the heads-up.)
  • v0.7-1 (December 13, 2013): Bugfix for wide deviation titles. (Thanks FuryTigresse for the heads-up.)
  • v0.7-2 (June 24, 2014): Removed Mozilla-specific values.
  • v0.8 (June 3, 2016): Preliminary fix for the new thumbs grid.
  • v0.8 (January 11, 2017): The same version already works for the new thumbs that were now expanded to our Gallery and Favourites.

Attention: use either this style OR deviantTHUMBS:HUGE!

Oooh, they finally rolled out the new new thumbs everywhere? Hallelujah – it was about time! :w00t:

(Sorry, couldn't resist.) Anyway, i had updated this style back in june, so it should cover it. Be sure you have version 0.8 installed. (When in doubt, remove it and install it again.) If you're still having troubles, please tell me your browser and link me a few pages where it's messed up.

My browser is Mozilla Firefox Version 51.0b13 (yes i have a beta version it's not different from the regular version)
i do currently have the 0.8 version of the script, i did reinstalled it but that didn't do diddle.

here's the links to my gallery and favorites, i had to disable the script to those pages because it's causing my browser to freeze up and sometimes it crashes the browser.

Hmm. No problems on my end (Firefox 50) when i go to these pages. Granted, the small thumbs aren't as pretty as they used to be, but they are small. (Right?) I'm also confused why your browser would freeze or crash, since my style doesn't add anything to the page that wasn't already there…

the thumbs were smaller before the site updated and the freezing/crashing thing is the result of scrolling down the page then i get a pop-up message saying: "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue."

Script: st.deviantart.net/roses/jsmin/…

so i usually stop the script but when i open the debugger that's when it crashes, and could be the fact i have a windows 7 operating system since November 2011.

I know that the thumbs were smaller before the update today, but i was referring to "my" smaller thumbs – the one that my style makes.

The script you're referring to is one of dA's own. I have no idea what it does, but it's likely related to loading in more thumbs and formatting them to fit nicely onto the page. Again, not related to my style, and nothing i can do to fix.

just my luck, i'll just have to find someone else with a small thumbnail script unless you're the only one.

look i'm stressed out i've been trying to find a way to fix it myself but DeviantART keeps messing it up and i'm not good at coding.

Do you have any tools for bringing back our personal literary tags, which are now being stripped away from even more of the site, including our own galleries? :(
Reply
:iconrotane:
rotane Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2017  Professional
I'm afraid not. Those tags are not present anymore within the new thumbs, so there's nothing for my style to "unhide". And a userstyle (what deviantTHUMB is) can't create them or import them from some other place. You'd have to ask a coder to write a userscript (notice the subtle difference), but i can't help you there.

Thanks. It was worth a try, though I suppose that means we all now need to figure out a way to make literature pieces once again as visually distinct from each other at a glance as visual pieces, especially if it looks like they might completely strip away lit tags... :(
Reply
:iconrotane:
rotane Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2017  Professional
True. I'm curious, how does dA handle images/thumbs that are on top of a literature piece? Do they show up on the lit thumb? (I have to admit, i'm not well versed within the lit community, and i hardly browse lit deviations.)

:iconshadesmaclean:
shadesmaclean Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2017  Hobbyist Writer
I'm not sure myself. Back when I first joined (2012), all you had to do was create an image that would fit into the little side tag (that you can still see on lit pieces in some places), and it just appeared there automatically. I suppose, even if someone found a way to re-code it back in there, it would only show up that way on one's own browser, not the rest of the internet a large. I think I might try experimenting with in-site posting options, because I would like to help other make themselves at-a-glance distinguishable again, just as visual art thumbnails are taken for granted for. If you come up with any other ideas, I'm all ears. :)

Oh, that's not what i meant! If you look at this collection of mine (rotane.deviantart.com/favourit…) you see some pictures in the background. They are all embedded pictures inside the journal itself. I was wondering if something similar is going on with lit thumbs. :)

:iconshadesmaclean:
shadesmaclean Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2017  Hobbyist Writer
Not with the vertical lit tags (which are still visible in some views), but what you've shown me (I've since figured out how to access that option from the editing screen) gave me the idea of adding my Tradewinds (and other logos) to the background as a "preview image" which puts it at the top of the piece in the old text view, or puts it underneath the text (just like in the journals you linked to) in the "new" view, so at least it looks like I can take back my at-a-glance distinctiveness, without resorting to styles or scripting. And, by its very nature, makes it visible to anyone else viewing the site without any styles. :)

Like so: shadesmaclean.deviantart.com/g…

Thanks for the feedback, Rotane, it looks like you've helped me solve this problem. :D

Heya Rotane,

First and foremost thank you so much for all the work you do with these script styles; they've made deviantART bearable for me (and I'm sure countless others) to use for the last couple of years, especially since their leadership seems devoted to ignoring what their users are practically screaming at them.

So I just woke up this morning to find that the idiots in charge of dA decided to screw with the website layout again (surprise, surprise); and was wondering if you had any plans to update this script style so as to fix their incompetency and make dA usable and aesthetically pleasing again.

Thanks again for everything you've done that the people that run this site refuse to even attempt.

Good enough for me. It still uses a lot of page bandwidth, but that is probably something neither of us have any control over.

It at least still gives the old look that I prefer, so I'm happy.

Thank you so much. C:

Yes, i can only scale the image down after they have been loaded. You'd have to get a script to do that, but Stylish alone can't change this.

ZYL5 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Hm, script as in Greasemonkey script, or some other 3rd party software/addon? I just might try researching how to do it myself, assuming it's no harder than writing your own Stylish or Greasemonkey script that is.

Hello! I think it's been a while since it's like that, but I've just noticed that the mature deviations don't appear outlined with red anymore, at least for me. I think you had once given me a code to write in the style to make them appear again but I totally forgot what it was :(

Not on my end. As always, be sure to update to the latest version (v0.7-1). If that doesn't work, uninstall and re-install the style. If that still doesn't work, please send me a screenshot of the page where it's off.

Found the solution, although I'm still not entirely sure what was wrong or what I did to fix it. The styles were turned on, but they weren't turned on. So instead of just turning them on, I also had to turn them on. It sounds confusing, but that's only because it is confusing.

There wouldn't be any chance of getting rid of the big ugly shadowy cutoff lines on overlong and overtall thumbnails and replacing them with whatever they looked like before as well, would there?
Reply
:iconrotane:
rotane Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013  Professional
Well, sort of. You see, there were no cutoffs before – the old overlong and overtall thumbs were just really really tiny. There is of course the possibility to hide these cutoffs entirely, but then you wouldn't know you're looking at an overlong or overtall deviation anymore.

To do that, you'll have to edit the style and add these 2 lines of code at the very end (if you're using Firefox, put it before the trailing "}"):
#deviantART-v7 .tt-fh.crop-h a.thumb:after,
#deviantART-v7 .tt-fh.crop-w .tt-bookendw { display: none !important; }


(Heads-up: if you have set your browser to auto-update your styles (which is the default), any new version of my style that i'll publish will overwrite any changes you make.)
