UPDATE2: New Beta Version Available: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1674211&goto=lastpost#966
UPDATE1: Extension is currently not compatible with the new UG forum. Please disable UUGE if you have it installed until I can sort things out. Thanks.

Chrome (Latest version: 1.4.1007) - Firefox (Latest Version: 1.4.1007)
_________________________________

So I wrote a browser extension.

Introducing the Unofficial Ultimate-Guitar Enhancer!

This is a once-tiny browser extension written by yours truly that aims to modernize the Ultimate-Guitar forum experience by providing many awesome enhancements.

Example:



UUGE supports custom avatars of sizes up to 175x256 pixels.




1) Larger forum widths:



2) Large images auto-downscaled:



Clicking on any downscaled image will revert it to its original size.


UUGE supports extra emoticons:





Clicking on the #PostID next to any post will cause a dropdown menu to appear as such. You can ignore any user, or simply ignore their UUGE-enhanced avatars or signatures.


UUGE supports basic embedding of certain elements. Example:



Supported embeds:

Straw Polls
Steam Products
Imgur Albums
SoundCloud Pages


UUGE supports rendering signature images. Example:





Comes with almost all the features you'd expect from the normal post reply screen and a few more


_________________________________

Installing UUGE:

UUGE is available on both Chrome and Firefox. Extension links are at the top of this post.

Firefox users: Drag the downloaded .xpi into the about:addons page.


Updating UUGE:

Chrome: Head to the extensions page, check the box labelled 'Developer mode', then click 'Update Extensions Now'



Firefox: Download the latest .xpi and drag it in as you normally would when installing.


Changing UUGE Options:

Chrome: Head to the extensions page, scroll down to UUGE, and click 'Options'.

Firefox: Head to the Addons page, click on UUGE's 'Options' button, then hit 'Modify Settings'.


FAQ:

1) Get my own custom avatar? Simply post the image you want as an avatar in this thread. Maximum size: 175x256px / 1 megabyte.

2) Add images to my signature? Edit your signature normally through UG and paste the urls of whatever images you want. Maximum 5 images per signature.

3) Embed content into my posts? Paste the url leading to whatever you want embedded into your post. UUGE does the rest.


1) Some UUGE feature: Head to the options screen (instructions above) and see if I've provided a way to disable whatever it is you don't like. If you don't see what you're looking for, let me know in this thread.

2) Someone else's UUGE Avatar/Signature: See the spoiler titled 'Working Ignore Lists' above.


Will add

Looks cool, but I wish you had a firefox extension. I keep wanting to change over to chrome, but there are a few things about chrome that really irritate me.

I'll try to get a Firefox version working, although it'll be my first firefox addon so I might take a while.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Need to get back to my desktop to try it but I think it's pretty cool when people mod things like this.

Is there a way for this to work without needing to post the request of resizing the image on this thread? Because when I resized the gif to the maximum size after I installed the extension, and tried to make it my avatar, nothing happened.

Sorry, I'd only be able to 'spoof' usernames with this sort of approach, and doing that would just confuse everyone.

You'd have to contact UG admins.
