Translucent Userpage Buttons by electricjonny Translucent Userpage Buttons by electricjonny
/* Updates and shit - July 2nd, 2011 */
I updated this slightly, and instead of tacking on yet another edit to this already long deviation description, I just decided to kill it all and start over.

So in a nut shell, this will make your |New|Edit| and |pencil| buttons mostly transparent until you hover. So the buttons you see on your userpage widgets will be transparent, along with the pencil button on comments to let you hide them until you hover over them.

This latest update doesn't quite look the same as the preview does here, but you get the added bonus of an animated opacity change instead of the sudden jump from translucent to opaque. Well, at least if you use Firefox 4.0 or above.


To Install


You'll need either Firefox or Chrome, and have the Stylish extension.
Firefox Stylish - [link]
Chrome Stylish - [link]


Once you have those, you can open this link and do this, depending on if you use Firefox or Chrome:
Firefox - Copy the entire contents of that link into a new blank style from the Stylish menu (click icon -> write new style -> blank style), give it a name, and then hit save.

Chrome - Open that link, but only copy the line starting with "/* make edit/new buttons..." till the last "}" character, but don't copy that last "}". Then in the "Applies to" area, add in a "URLs on the domain" category and write in "deviantart.com".

It's a lot more work in Chrome, but that's another reason Firefox is better ;P


Now this applies to group pages also, so if you have privs there, you might find the small icons on things being transparent annoying, but you can fix that, sorta, if you take out some lines. I haven't been using it on those icons for very long, so I'll see if that's annoying to me. Anyway, hope you all still like this :)

Translucent Userpage Buttons by `electricjonny. The suggester says, 'A very useful little Stylish script for everyone who finds the "Edit"-buttons on their userpage a tad too distracting. And I know there are quite a lot of people who think so.' ( Suggested by AndyGassner and Featured by TerrorCookie )

Nah, they aren't transparent anymore. Because they lost their "New" and "Edit" texts and only show the pencil icons now.

Seems it's just some random backgrounds to use however you want.

That's annoying. I'll get to work on it. Looks like I need to either work on changing the background image or position it better.

Can you just not install it on any computer you use? If you can't, you can try Firefox Portable, which will run completely off a thumbdrive and not need to be installed :)
