New Design - Update

Hi everyone,

As you can see, we launched a new website today (we hope you like it ;) )

We are aware that several threads posted in the forum in the past few hours aren’t available now, but don’t worry - they’re not deleted. We’re working now on bringing them back.

In the meantime, please feel free to write down your helpful feedback on the new design on this discussion started by Natalie: https://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/55351/update-about-userstyles-new-design-release#latest

Thanks again for your patience and understanding!

  • Hi I have been trying to update a userstyle to work with the new site and cannot work out how to style a few elements there in some parts of the code where there could be more css selectors/elements to make creating userstyles easier.

    Another issue is I cannot figure out how to theme the iframe page when you go into my account

    https://userstyles.org/styles/82599/userstyles-darkred

    I do like the design though just find it strange it is not easier to theme considering this is the purpose of the site.
  • Hi!
    I have updated Stylish plugin and i lost all styles. Try to install it back but no styles installing from site. Button «Install Style» lighting on hover mouse but clicking do nothing. Browser have no other extensions.

    And doesn't work switching pages when searching for single site. On click «2» or «→» showing page 2 for all styles on site not for single site.

    6. Missing Advanced Search - this is not a bug, it's by design. We're made many improvements to style discovery, which we believe delivers a good user experience. Additionally, based on our stats, usage of advanced settings was very low.

    ""Oh not many people are using this, let's remove it.""
    That's a load of bulcrap, I think you broke the whole thing by those "improvements" so you just decided it's not worth to reinvent the advanced search.
    Your current stupid style discovery isn't doing anything.

    The old way also searched styles based on their description and I believe the "Notes" section as well. Now nothing works.
    Go ahead and search "youtube badge", it finds nothing. And previously it showed a whole page with styles all which had youtube and/or badge in the name or description.

    I often searched for new styles based on the 'Updated Date' (which btw was available in the advanced search) and I could even combine stuff like searching styles of a certain website with an additional query. Now I can't do that.

    So you just removed a perfectly working advanced search for absolutely no reason.


    I think you rushed this update.
    It should have been released under a subdomain like 'beta.userstyles.org' and people can send feedback and you can improve it separately, and once it's good it may go live. But instead you went and broke the whole website, there is more problems than there were 5 years ago.
  • I registered just to say this. The redesign destroyed the website. The new way the search works can't find anything at all!

    In the past I thought your search feature was great, since for example when I didn't know exactly what to search for, a bunch of keywords would let me find the right Stylish styles. Now, I'm searching for things and can't find pretty much anything! The user above says that it's because you're no longer searching in descriptions. What am I supposed to do now!? How do I find the style that does what I want? I'm looking for a Firefox UI style that someone requested. I'm sure I would find it in the past, but now no results turn up for queries that would bring pages and pages of relevant styles in the past. The new screenshots are also completely blurred and with the wrong dimensions, not allowing to see anything.

    You should analyze your search traffic, as in the past, people's searches sure were successful. The searches led to style installs. Now, the searches leading to users installing styles should be enormously decreased. Basically, your website is going to hell. Do you realize that you just destroyed a good website and it's going to die now because of this stab in the heart!? The web has lost a great resource with this.

    Listen up and change it back, for crying out loud! LISTEN TO THE USERS. L-I-S-T-E-N.
  • the new design is an eye catcher indeed but nothing seems to be working..............from the options it had when you clicked on a theme to looking for them..............

    Look, a search that I was lucky that matched the title, I searched for "URL bar Firefox" and it says that no results are found:
    https://userstyles.org/styles/browse?search_terms=url bar firefox
    There sure would have been dozens of relevant styles for that in the past! After resorting to another search engine, something that people surely won't do, after a while I ended up finding this:
    https://userstyles.org/styles/122394/url-bar-tweaks-remove-visit-search-limit-width
    It has what I searched for in the freaking title, then how come you don't even have any search results for the query!?
    It's the style that I wanted too! And now guess what... The redesign broke the style. Because it removed features carelessly, rather than adding, it's impossible now to access that style.
    Edit: here's the cached version of how it used to work, but note that it won't last long:
    https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:ta0_gumkdAEJ:https://userstyles.org/styles/122394/url-bar-tweaks-remove-visit-search-limit-width+

    You destroyed your website. Might as well just take it offline! It's the utmost despicable update that you could have done and the worse part is that you aren't reverting it.

    Coincidentally, that's my style. According to a post in a longer announcement thread, the controls should be back sometime next week.

    I copied the various selection controls to a separate page to let you generate the necessary CSS to your liking, but Stylish will not one-click-install the style from any site other than this one, so while you can copy/paste the CSS, it's certainly not a substitute for having the style settings on the style's main page.

  • No one style could not be installed.
    The install button is not working.
    Extension doesn't work now. It's very sad.
  • What the hell is going on?
    That... That's crazy! Are you dummies?
    Where settings?
    Where screenshots?
    Where pre-release tests?

    damn! fuck it! it is ugly!
  • +1 @Demetrio for being honest
    Can we have the old one back for the time being? This just doesn't work.
  • Is the old website for sale? (I'm serious)
  • New design is better than before, but search is completely broken as mentioned by other people on this thread.

    Side note: Does anyone know of any alternative to userstyles.org? Userscripts has greasyfork.org and openuserjs.org.

    freestyler.ws seems to have styles from a few places.

  • Which style also can not be installed.
    The install button does not respond.
    I hope for correspondence.
  • The firefox plugin doesn't show the available styles of my favorite sites anymore (when pressing F). I'm leaving.

    PS: I just registered to comment that.
  • The design itself is great, and a long time coming. But the functionality of the site has been destroyed. Discovery is much harder now. For the most part, it's essential to me that results are displayed in a list, and I need to be able to sort by recently created/updated on a search-level basis. Screenshots don't appear to be working, and there are no more lightboxes. Please bring some features back - please, please, please.

    Other than that, and like I said, the design is much better, and I like the logo too.
  • This new design has ruined many styles! All settings are broken! There are huge styles dedicated to giving users customisation and they are BROKEN!!! Example: https://userstyles.org/styles/95280/youtube-custom-colors-video-progress-bar
    (no options to select colors any more)

    I wanna know how are we supposed to use these now?
    Someone fix this ASAP

    "Format of style descriptions" is also broken. I type "style 135027" without quotes and it doesn't link to other styles in the description anymore!
    Help suggest some html is accepted, but it is wrong: https://userstyles.org/help/coding#format
  • Maybe it is time to create an alternative for userstyles.org?

    You need "helpful feedback"? ok...

    1. Back all to old version 2. Create local environment and while develop a new version 3. Test new version in local environment 4. Publish new version to test. subdomain 5. Get feedback about new version 6. Continue develop on local environment and fix all 7. Publish fixed version to test. subdomain 8. Repeat 4-7 until it is good 9. Wait Appulse! 10. Deploy new version to production

    // Sorry for my english

    +1 Demetrio, you got good points.
    I have faith this can be fixed over a few weeks, but I don't understand why the main website was 'updated' BEFORE it was tested and fixed? This now forces all users to be testers!

    PS. I didn't see the other page till now, why is this happening: https://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/55351/update-about-userstyles-new-design-release

    The "Style Settings" section of the script page is completely missing in the current design. It has been promised to be back in the next week:

    See #1 here: https://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/comment/112473/#Comment_112473

    If you can't wait...

    The settings controls were still displayed in Google cache, so I was able to copy them out and you can manually inject them into the current page using this long script (only for: YouTube - Custom colors video progress bar):

    var d=document.getElementById("preview_image_div"); d.insertAdjacentHTML("afterend", decodeURIComponent("%3Cul%20id%3D%22style-settings%22%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Clabel%20for%3D%22setting-288514%22%3EBar%20type%3C%2Flabel%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cselect%20id%3D%22setting-288514%22%20name%3D%22ik-bartype%22%20class%3D%22style-setting-option%22%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Solid%22%20selected%3D%22%22%3ESolid%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Glow%2Fgradient%22%3EGlow%2Fgradient%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fselect%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Clabel%20for%3D%22setting-288515%22%3EChoose%20your%20colour%3C%2Flabel%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cselect%20id%3D%22setting-288515%22%20name%3D%22ik-colour%22%20class%3D%22style-setting-option%22%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Blue%20(default)%22%20selected%3D%22%22%3EBlue%20(default)%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Pink%22%3EPink%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Green%22%3EGreen%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Red%22%3ERed%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-White%22%3EWhite%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Cyan%22%3ECyan%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Purple%22%3EPurple%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Custom%20(select%20below%22%3ECustom%20(select%20below)%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fselect%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Clabel%20for%3D%22setting-288516%22%3EIf%20'custom%2C'%20select%20a%20colour%20here%3C%2Flabel%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cinput%20id%3D%22setting-288516%22%20name%3D%22ik-colour2%22%20class%3D%22style-setting-option%20color%20%7Bhash%3Atrue%2Crequired%3Atrue%7D%22%20value%3D%22%232793E6%22%20size%3D%227%22%20maxlength%3D%227%22%20autocomplete%3D%22off%22%20style%3D%22background-image%3A%20none%3B%20background-color%3A%20rgb(39%2C%20147%2C%20230)%3B%20color%3A%20rgb(0%2C%200%2C%200)%3B%22%20type%3D%22text%22%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Clabel%20for%3D%22setting-288517%22%3EColour%20volume%20bar%3F%3C%2Flabel%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cselect%20id%3D%22setting-288517%22%20name%3D%22ik-volumecolour%22%20class%3D%22style-setting-option%22%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Yes%22%20selected%3D%22%22%3EYes%20(default)%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-No%22%3ENo%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fselect%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Clabel%20for%3D%22setting-447455%22%3EColour%20extras%20(buttons%2C%20HD%20tag)%3F%3C%2Flabel%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cselect%20id%3D%22setting-447455%22%20name%3D%22ik-extras%22%20class%3D%22style-setting-option%22%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Yes%22%20selected%3D%22%22%3EYes%20(default)%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-No%22%3ENo%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fselect%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cli%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Clabel%20for%3D%22setting-452204%22%3EScrubber%20button%20colour%3C%2Flabel%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Cselect%20id%3D%22setting-452204%22%20name%3D%22ik-scrubbercolour%22%20class%3D%22style-setting-option%22%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Same%20as%20bar%22%20selected%3D%22%22%3ESame%20as%20bar%20(default)%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-Dark%20grey%22%3EDark%20grey%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3Coption%20value%3D%22ik-White%22%3EWhite%3C%2Foption%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fselect%3E%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%3C%2Fli%3E%0A%09%09%09%3C%2Ful%3E"));

    To use that:

    (1) Select and copy the script
    (2) With the style's page loaded, open Firefox's Web Console ("3-bar" menu button > Developer > Web Console, or Tools > Web Developer > Web Console, or on Windows: Ctrl+Shift+k)
    (3) Paste the script in the blank line at the bottom and press Enter to execute it
    (4) Close the console, the controls should appear in the page.

    If you don't trust the script, you can see how it's done and extract it from Google cache yourself using the method in this post: https://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/comment/112615/#Comment_112615

    Note that this method doesn't change the "Show CSS" panel but does update what gets installed/updated.

    so can we get a style to hide this atrocious update nobody seems to have asked for? why can't I search for styles by their creation date? all this idiotic flashy tablety design is the end of everything.
  • edited May 8 Firefox
    something wrong with preview after updating existing style or creating new, images can be seen when i search for these styles, but when i browse user profile "no available"
  • When I search for themes for userstyles.org, it throws me like every theme out there, but none for this site. Why? It's not like there aren't any...
  • I know I'm just piling on, but search is quite literally broken.

    I can't search for anything anymore. I have to go on google now!
  • Also, style linking is no longer working. For example, see my style's Release Notes.

    I'd also like the Advanced Settings to be expanded by default -- otherwise, many people won't know it's there. And it would be nice to be able to edit these with the style already installed!

    Yes, putting the button in a more discoverable location and allowing updating when there are style settings are important items. Related thread: https://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/55775/style-settings-vs-update-style-style-installed-button

    In my opinion the left panel seems not so useful to take a so important space :
    a top menu should be sufficient
