Yes folks I'm releasing the ModDB toolbar I've been working on on and off for a few weeks.
As I'm not really a coder in any sense this toolbar is basic at the moment (only version 0.1). The current features include.

UPDATE (5:50pm GMT 15/2/05) - Fixed Mod search not finding mods.
UPDATE (1am GMT 15/2/05) - Added Show/Hide button.
The show hide button can be accessed in the firefox customise toolbars section by right clicking the main toolbar and choosing customize. Simply drag the modDB toolbar show/hide button where evr you want it (NOT on the moddb toolbar). It will rember which bar u used last on hide but wont rember if u hid it on closing the app yet .

  • Switchable toolbar - switch between search and nav bars for quick access to what you need
  • Search bar - search mods news members and forums.
  • Nav bar - Quick access to most used links
  • Nav Bar - QuickMod - simply enter the mods ID in the field and press enter for quick acces to mod. (you can open the mod in a new tab or window simply by right clicking)

Its not much for now but I find them handy enough for a release simply click the image above then click instal to install the Toolbar (a restart is required , will work with v0.8 + of FF)

For those experiencing problems with installation earlier the issue has now been resolved

Enjoy.

Yeah, Firefox says, and I quote:

"Firefox wrote: Firefox could not download the file at ... because invalid install package.


Unfortunate, too :(

It's too big...I'll download any smaller versions, though. It just takes too much space off my screen.

Nice work, though.

does it have the words on ? if so u may need to disable text and images, for some reason it doesnt do this by default , just right click the main ff toolbar select cutomize and change to icons only and choose small icons, its pretty smaller then.

loox nice but its missing crucial thing that'd make the toolbar incredible and that's ModWatch link :) (or entire ModWatch section handled like bookmarks to mods would be even better) and maybe option to auto-login of course. but good start :)

No IE suxx :P.

black_hand there all on my list of todos :)
I put the hide button in my bookmarks toolbar so ive never thought about a large icon . That will be in next relese.

grasn - Theyre ok on my resolution (1024*768) havent tried anyother res

@Hunter - Its for FireFox and will not work in anyother browser.

For the others It works fine in FF1.0 i dunno why ure getting problems.
If you post screens in Moddb.com
i might be able to help you.

In the next version i hope for it to be smaller and save your preferences on exit.

Im sorry for the difficulties so far .

...for that mod watch maybe u could use RSS system. i see that moddb has basic RSS system alrdy but not RSS feed just for mod watch (if ive missed that, correct me pls). if ure on friendly terms with moddb i doubt youll have any problems with that and creating such feed would please many other members anyway i bet :).

Ive fixed the mod search problem and tweaked some little issues.
Please uninstall and redownload (update might work but i would count on it). Sorry for the issues , it is my first time coding something proper.
