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.

@-moz-document domain("deviantart.com") {

Alternative Method to Hide MLT Using AdBlock

div.deviation-share { display: none !important; }

Special Thanks

Thank you. I just wanted to remove the 'More From Deviantart' thing because on almost every single damn piece of my TF2 SFM artwork, the MFD/MLT/whatever-the-fuck-it's-called section kept displaying FNAF SFM art, and it was pissing me off that More From Deviantart wasn't showing things similar to what I make. I had to put 10-15 tags and submit to several groups where my art would fit in before it got rid of them all. And I'm not about to do that for every single piece of my work, so this was a godsend.

I have to agree with the MFD section showing things unrelated to your artwork mostly when it's not put in a collection. It's quite annoying.

Honestly, I wish the MFD section was more like YouTube's related videos feature.

I just wish they had an algorithm for detecting keywords in a description that would actually work. I also wish there was a way to blacklist certain keywords so artworks with those keywords wouldn't show up in MFD.

(:iconescalatedquicklyplz: :iconsaysplz:"Well, that escalated quickly.")

ikr??

Plus, why the heck would you name that annoying feature "more like this" if you're going to forcefully advertise mostly unrelated crap that are in the same category for the sole reason of the latter? Loud House - Lincoln facepalm

parallellogic I'm so glad you gave us this coding. I was kind of sick and tired of the MFD section for a while. Loud House - Lola CelebratingLoud House - Lana Celebrating

I suppose that's all it does. Most of my art is in the '3D Fanart' category, however that is categorized, so I'll get things for FNAF Source Filmmaker art, XNA Lara art and models, MMD art and models, etc. It really drives me up the wall.

This site should give you the option to toggle the More Like This section.

Perhaps, but if they did implement such a toggle, it would likely be buried so deep in the setting you'd probably never know it was there.

This is pretty easy to use. I had it installed on my old computer, and thankfully it was still pretty easy to find, even though I lost the original link.

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?

: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.

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.
