    Registered Users Posts: 9,691 ✭✭✭ 28064212


    The Boardsie Enhancement Suite browser extension is an (unofficial) set of modifications designed to improve the desktop browsing experience on Boards. It is an upgrade from the userscript I previously provided. All script features exist in this extension.

    Extension homepage: https://github.com/28064212/boardsie-enhancement-suite - includes screenshots, documentation, and source code

    Features

    • Full-width display
    • Dark mode settings
    • Keyboard shortcuts
    • Thread previews on hover
    • Full list of thanks under all posts
    • Category drop-down menu

    See screenshots here

    Installation

    The extension is not yet available on the native browser extension sites. A future release will be, but for now it requires a manual install. This is a once-off step, updates are provided automatically (according to your browser's settings).

    Firefox

    1. Simply click https://github.com/28064212/boardsie-enhancement-suite/releases/latest/download/boardsie-enhancement-suite.xpi and confirm installation

    Chrome

    1. Download the latest .zip release at https://github.com/28064212/boardsie-enhancement-suite/releases/latest/download/boardsie-enhancement-suite.zip, and unzip it somewhere on your PC (note that the unzipped files will need to stay in place after installation, so choose somewhere permanent)
    2. In Chrome, open your "Extensions" page (Settings => More tools => Extensions, or go to the URL chrome://extensions)
    3. Enable "Developer mode" (top right)
    4. Click on "Load Unpacked" and select the folder you unzipped the files to

    Edge

    1. Download the latest .zip release at https://github.com/28064212/boardsie-enhancement-suite/releases/latest/download/boardsie-enhancement-suite.zip, and unzip it somewhere on your PC (note that the unzipped files will need to stay in place after installation, so choose somewhere permanent)
    2. In Edge, open your "Extensions" page (Settings => Extensions, or go to the URL edge://extensions)
    3. Enable "Developer mode" (bottom left)
    4. Click on "Load Unpacked" and select the folder you unzipped the files to

    Notes

    This is unofficial, so things may break occasionally as Boards make changes to the site itself. Updates to the extension will be made as quickly as practicable.

    Feedback (either here or on Github) is welcome 🙂

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
