PostToTumblr’s 1,628th User Celebration

To celebrate the 1,628th user of my Chrome extension PostToTumblr I have just uploaded a new version that adds a requested feature.

The new feature allows the user to post to multiple Tumblr blogs.

Once specified in the options you are now presented with a sub-menu when posting images allowing you to choose your alternative blogs or just the default blog:

Important to note is that you are only presented this sub-menu if you have specified alternative blogs in the options.

Chrome should auto-update the extension for you soon!

Automatically Expand To Current Folder [Windows7 Tip]

Forgive me if you already know this but I just discovered it by accident and think its pretty neat.

Open a windows explorer window (windows & e) then click on Organise > Folder and Search Options:

Inside here is a nifty little option called “Automatically Expand To Current Folder”:

Now you can easily get a view where you are in a folder structure and jump to the sub-folder of your choice!

Chrome Crawler v0.4 – Background Crawling & More!

I have been asked by several peeps now to add the ability to persist crawls when the pop-up window closes so I rolled out this update.

Now when you close the Chrome Crawler popup your crawl is saved so that when you open it up again you can resume.

Not only that but thanks to the awesomeness of the background page API in chrome I have now added the ability to crawl even when the popup isnt open.

To enable this head over to the option and untick the “Pause crawling when popup closes” option.

While I was at it I made a few other changes and improvements. The main one being that the “src” attribute on tags is also searched for when you crawl. What this means is that “interesting” images should show up in the files tab if you have images as interesting file types.

You should automatically get the update next time you restart chrome, or if you dont have the extension yet head over to the gallery to get it!
