I don't want to read any of that other stuff. Can I just have an install button?

SHINY INSTALL BUTTON!

Ooh, shiny....But what does it do?

Shiny indeed. This is a script that adds a collection of features for finding better art, and suggesting it to be featured across the site (plus some bonus features thrown in for fun)

I'll let you figure out exactly what it does, but it's all pretty awesome.

One thing I will mention is the "suggest DD" button on each image.

What it does is bring up a box for you to enter the text you want sent with the image, and creates a handy dropdown list of the appropriate GM's, making it super easy to suggest a DD :D

Ok, so does it need anything else to be installed?

You'll need greasemonkey for firefox, or tampermonkey for chrome :D

Awesome, where to I get it?

Just click here and then click the shiny green INSTALL button.

That code is pretty cool. Can I use parts of it in userscripts I make?

Yes. This is released under a share-alike license. What that means is that if you use part of my script, I request that you release your work share-alike so other people can build on bits of your work. This helps foster a better userscript community on dA meaning better userscripts for everyone!

Well, that all sounds pretty good to me!

Try phrasing that as a question. They have these crazy curly things that look like "?" on the end of them. You should try it some time ;)

Update (15/2/2011): Updated to add an update alert box. Anyone on a version prior to v1.0.2 will not get alerts of the script updates and so will not get bug fixes or new features. If you have already installed this script, please re-install it :D

Update (10/7/2011): It has been brought to my attention that this doesn't work in chrome. Unfortunately, upon investigation into the matter the bugs that appear in chrome are not fixable. This is due to how chrome does persistent storage compared to how firefox does it. I may release a cut down version for chrome at a later date, but it will not be nearly as good.

Update (20/7/2011): A new plugin has been released for google chrome called tampermonkey. Now, this is important because it properly implements the greasemonkey API's to make this script work. If you have any problems, let me know and I'll try and fix them, but the future is bright on the chrome front :D

Great idea for a script - its features would really add to the dA experience. Unfortunately, I've got the same issue as =Leichenengel. After installation, Greasemonkey indicates that dAUltra is installed and enabled, but there is no evidence of any dAUltra features when I view a dA page. There is no difference whether I uninstall/reinstall dAUltra, reboot Firefox, or even reboot the computer.

Apparently there is a conflict, but I'm at a loss for what that conflict might be. I've tried disabling AdBlock Plus and NoScript to no avail. Just can't get dAUltra to work. Pity.

I'd love to see the errors that come up in the firefox error console (ctrl+shift+j for windows, command+shift+j for mac) related to dAUltra, if you can get them for me.

That might give me enough of a clue to fix the problem :)

I still couldn'T get this script to work - idk why it won't work :crying:

Unfortunately I can't replicate the problem on any of the browsers I have installed, so I can't really fix it :/

It's just like I install it and nothing happens - That's about everything there is. If there was more I could give you more :(

I actually only want that Suggest DD Thingie - that is the only reason why I want this script to work *sigh*

That really isn't something I can replicate in any of the browsers I have installed (chrome stable with tamper monkey, firefox stable with GM stable and firefox nightly with GM Beta, and safari) unfortunately, so I literally can't bug-fix it.

:noes: Could you possibly upload a few screenshots for Firefox GM how dA would look like if the script was working? Possibly I'm just overseeing something...
trezoid's avatar
trezoidHobbyist Digital Artist
sure

Unfortunately, due to a small bug in my version of firefox (Like, a bug in the browser) I can't show you the suggestDD button, but it appears right beneath the favorite button (and is green)

There isn't even the Ultra-settings button in that drop down list - I have dAUltra installed but neither that settings menu nor the Suggestion Button appears...no matter how often I reinstall the script or Greasemonkey itself *sigh* Possibly it's not compatible with my current Firefoy Version?

--> V 16.0.2

Uhm yeaahh now that I installed it I can'T find any of the mentioned features. When discussing it on dAmn someone mentioned it might clash with dAmnGoodies.

How can I make this script work along superdAmn, dAmnGoodies and Chromacity? I already put the script on top of the startup list in Grease Monkey but it doesn'T seem to work :|

This script would be soooo useful for me - especiall because of the Suggest DD thing ^^

There is absolutely no reason it would clash with superdAmn, or dAmnGoodies or chromacity.

Like...none at all.

They're all dAmn scripts, which dAUltra makes a point of not touching at all.

What version of greasemonkey and firefox are you using?

Firefox V 15.0.1

Grease Monkey V 1.1

Alright, try uninstalling it and re-installing

the script or grease monkey?

So I've been reinstalling the script two times now - but still nothing happens or shows up. Instead I now have the issue that after reinstalling it the 3rd time pictures won't show up anymore that did before - neither their thumbs nor their normal view nor the fullview.

I tired with restarting the browser or changing the start up order in the script manager...I deactivated Greasemonkey and activated it again - still no success :(

I reall want this script to work mainly because of the Suggest DD function (since the old Suggest DD Script doesn'T work anymore ^^)
