How to Remove More Like This by parallellogic How to Remove More Like This by parallellogic
This is a procedure to remove the "More Like This" section next to each deviation and the "More Like This" overlay that appears at the bottom of thumbnails. I don't want to be scrolling to click the 'download' button, so this is my solution

Do not tell me this solution doesn't work for your specific browser. If you have a solution for users using a different browser, feel free to post it below. I do not want you to tell me this isn't good enough for you. I'm not here to fix dA's messes; I've provided a solution that worked for me, not a promise that I'll make everyone happy.

Install instructions - Firefox
Ensure you are using FireFox: www.mozilla.org/en-US/products…
Install Stylish: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef…
Restart Firefox
Left click the Stylish Icon at the bottom right of the browser to bring up the menu >> Write New Script >> Blank Style...
Name: Remove More Like This
Text Body:
Copy-paste this text:
@-moz-document domain("deviantart.com") {
div.deviation-mlt-preview { display: none !important }
a.mlt-link { display: none !important }}
div.more-from-collection-preview { display: none !important; }


Click Save

Install instructions - Chrome
Ensure you are using Chrome: www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/…
Install Stylish: chrome.google.com/webstore/det…
Right click the Stylish Icon at the top right of the browser to bring up the menu >> Options >> Write new style
Name: Remove More Like This
Enabled: Click this box
Text Body:
Copy-paste this text:
div.deviation-mlt-preview { display: none !important; }
a.mlt-link { display: none !important; }
div.more-from-collection-preview { display: none !important; }


Click Save. Click here if you are confused

Install Instructions - Opera

Install Instructions - Linux: qupzilla, rekonq and midori
doth-e-pin.deviantart.com/art/…
Details: comments.deviantart.com/1/3502…

Toggle Drop Down Option
If you wish for the "More Like This" menu to only appear when you roll over the title (otherwise it just appears as a "button"), use the code found here: comments.deviantart.com/1/3502…

Alternative Method to Hide MLT Using AdBlock
comments.deviantart.com/1/3502…

Remove all dA Promotions
Stylish script to remove banners and other promotions: userstyles.org/styles/30707/de…

Remove Just the Share Links
Follow the instructions above and replace the lines of code (lines that start with "a." and "div.") with just one line of code:
div.deviation-share { display: none !important; }

Special Thanks

I'm noticing this has stopped working now, I think because they updated how More Like This works?
I am very grateful for what you have done and I'll be watching if you do more, especially if you modify this to work with what they've done now.

Perhaps try reinstalling it?  The extension is still working for me on both FF and Chrome. What browser are you using?

Thanks for this, makes it less cluttered while browsing on Chrome.

Are the affected images still download or does the extension stop that as well?
Reply
:iconparallellogic:
parallellogic Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2015
I've seen content flash up momentarily in the past with this form of extension, so I suspect some images may still load until the browser realizes they are not needed.  Why?

Metered internet, the userscript stopping little image downloads in addition to hiding the frame would have been a 'bonus' for me. But just doing its intended job is good enough.

I didn't actually know if a functional result would come up when I searched "is there an option to disable "more from deviantart"?"  Thanks for working out that HTML code!

Does this hide the "More like this" from just you or as well as all the other people who are viewing your image?

It's a browser extension that exists on your computer so it only affects what you see.

You are my hero!! When I'm on journals this section sometimes links me to journals that upset me. Being able to hide them solves the problem of both being upset and the admitted willpower problems that make it hard for me to just walk away! Thank you very much! ^_^

Q: - does installing stylish result in unwanted programs also being installed? I only ask because I seem to be getting coupon caddies popping up lately, not long after installing this.
Reply
:iconparallellogic:
parallellogic Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014
I don't know anything about "coupon caddies".  Stylish is a browser extension - it changes how content received by your browser is displayed.  It shouldn't be sending any data out to the net to change which ads are sent to you.

I've had it for a couple of years without any mishaps, but I've noticed that when I re-installed it recently, coupon caddies and saver add-ons started appearing. basically, when random words on any given page are highlighted in red and serve as links to stuff you don't want. I can't be certain Stylish is doing this, but I can't think what else could be causing it. I'll leave it off for a week or so and see what happens.

Another question: can you write, or has someone already written, a script to get rid of the new "Featured in Collections" thing on the right? Or at least swap its position with the "More from dA" part to put it where it used to be. I don't mind the "More like" part so much anymore as it's helped me find some artists I wouldn't have otherwise, but I really don't give a crap if something is in some other person's collection of favorites or not. Thanks again for all your hard work!

I've included all the scripts I'm aware of in the deviation description.  I'm not aware of anything that specific...

You can remove that section by adding some extra code at the end of the script:
div.more-from-collection-preview { display: none !important; }
