Maybe it would be possible with a deviation filter too? as of now you have to go to the deviation and block it from there. Deviantart filter is so much more convenient :)

Thankyou so much!

I have downloaded the DA Filter update here in Chrome, but there is something that i don't clearly understand:

Before trying to do a reckless viewing move since today it's the first time i've downloaded it and i'm early starting with blacklisting what almost everyone here in DA knows, ¿what is a "wildcard", in the DA filter? ¿Can someone please explain it to me how it works? Because i don't know if marking a filter or tag as a "wildcard", whenever you choose "yes" or "no", instantly blocks a drawing with the tags on it.

Excellent! The cringe has finally been eradicated!

So glad this exists, and with an update to match the new site layout too. Thanks!

Thanks, Ryan. I appreciate the latest updates.

Works perfectly. I can now filter out the creepy fetish "art" and pony BS.

I think that it would be nice if you could still click on a deviation even if its hidden. After all, there are false positives sometimes!

Thank you for the suggestion; I have added it to the list ( to be implemented as a future enhancement. Note that there is not timeline/ETA yet for the next release.

is there a way for me to hide the deviation? i could before Eclipse, i mean so that i dont see the Icon of the app. also whenever i try to manually hide anything it gives me lag, could be me idk, Thanks for this incredible app

As of now I have not found a "good" way to completely hide filtered thumbnails that doesn't break the site/layout.

The Eclipse redesign uses an explicit grid, whereas the old version used an implicit grid. So with the old site, I could remove an thumbnail, and the grid would auto-adjust, but with Eclipse, removing the deviation either leaves a hole (which isn't really an improvement) or totally breaks the grid (which then interferes with loading more thumbnails).

If I ever figure out a simple way to bring this feature back, I will make sure to prioritize it.

alright. also whenever i block stuff it lags my internet both google and firefox idk why, thanks for answering

This should also block deviations fr the group deviations page/message center imo, not just the main/browse page

This extension doesn't work for me. I've done every step in order, but nothing changes. Does anyone have any sort of idea how or what I could have done wrong? I'm using Chrome on a Chromebook 11 if that helps any.

Would it be possible to filter out art that you've already favorited?

This looks like an incredibly valuable add-on, but it doesn't seem to be working properly for me (I'm on Firefox). I don't know what Eclipse means, I'm new, but I'll keep looking for a way to filter.

Hi Wyvern, I just wanted to let you know that a new version of DeviantArt Filter is available now. Version 6 supports the new site (which is/was called Eclipse); you might want to give it another try now.

Thanks, works perfectly for me.

This add-on is a piece of junk. It does not work on Firefox.

I put in mlp, FriendshipIsMagic, MyLittlePony, FiM and I am still getting drawing of them showing up on the front page. WIll be deleting this right away from Firefox.

I have also reported this rubbish add-on to Firefox.

A requirement if you use deviantart a lot.
Now we just need a public blocklist (ideally split into different categories so you can pick what you want to get rid of)
Swurby's avatar
Very useful, thank you.

A couple of flaws...
1. It doesn't work on dA Eclipse, only on the old dA
2. Only works when you're on the main page of DeviantArt.

But other than that, it's actually really useful! Good job! Thumbs Up

I just recently released version 6 of DeviantArt Filter, which does work on Eclipse, and should work on most (if not all) pages now.

If you already have the extension installed, it should automatically update within the next few days (if it hasn't already), or you can manually check for updates as well.
