Hover Helper by electricjonny Hover Helper by electricjonny
This is a script that gives you information when you hold shift and hover over a username, avatar, or deviation.

If it's a username or avatar, you'll get the info shown on the left of this preview, with the avatar, username, tagline, then links to their gallery, journal page, and activity page. So you hold shift, then hover the username or avatar. You can't hover, then press shift. The information box will fade up, and then go away after a half second or so after unhovering it if you don't move your cursor onto the box.

You can also hold shift and hover a deviation link to get a 300 pixel wide preview. I've been wanting that for a while, since I sometimes forget the things people fav :slow: Anyway, this will work on any deviation link, and also thumbnails (if you want a bigger preview before clicking the deviation.

The deviation previews will also work in the chats, although usernames won't. The way the site's HTML is set up makes it harder to work in the chats.

To Install


This should work in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome, and you can get it here:

Let me know if you have any questions or problems :)

Well, I bet it used to be. :dummy: I guess I'm much too late for this one. ._.

Try this 192.168.1.82/code/da_-_hover_h… but like I just replied to you with, it doesn't exactly work perfectly.

Ha! Thank you - I'll try it out. I initially posted with the intent on installing the script afterwards, but I'm late.
Oh, so late! Nonetheless, the function seems to have had decent practical uses (esp when fully functioning) and would have been perfect.
Anyway. Great work in general, electricjonny! I remember you from at least 2007 mainly idling in #iRPG - now, there's a function that boggled my newbie mind at the time. :dummy:
I never found out who won the back story writing competition either. That'd be an interesting read.

Yeah I never heard who "won" that stupid game :lol:

Anyway, if you want another script for "FB-like hover stuff" check out this script xeviousss.deviantart.com/art/d… which sadly I don't thinks works anymore (the install URL not working, the script not working?  I forget) But try this on for size, this is how I originally found it.  With a slight few additions: 99.82.246.199/code/deviantINFO… Basically hover an avatar, get info.  I'd like forum posts stats, but haven't found a way to add those :B

Oh, wowzers. Having dispersed a little of my time over Facebook by now, it's often the case that I'd hover over a deviant's username like on FB - to no avail. Thanks for sharing, it's perfect. Love

This uh, this doesn't really work anymore, and furthermore, the install URL 404's.  So er what? :slow:  I can provide a non-404 script, but (for some reason) you can't hover the gallery/activity/journal links to get to those.  But yeah, I think the hover-deviations stuff works.
