I originally made a chrome extension for the ZB Admin CP and thought of taking it a bit further and making it for users first and developing it for Admin later. It's a cool little contraption which adds some functionality to ZB forums and works across every ZB forum thus far. The menu, search bar and active topics are dynamic for every forum you visit.

What do you think?

Being still in development, what additions would you add to it? Active topic and avatar across every page is cool, but what else would you add? Maybe having the shoutbox show up as well was an idea?

Just wanted to update for anyone who is interested. I've worked quite a bit on it to rewrite the code and clean it up quite a bit.

This is the updated look. The setting box is expanded in this view. Clicking on and off turns features on and off. There is also the ability to drag and drop the blocks found at the bottom in order to reorder the blocks in the sidebar to your liking.

Just happened to be on testing it out on the forum and I saw you wrote. Thank you esper!

I didn't sleep this night and made a lot of updates. First of all I thought it would be much cooler if you could actually drag and drop the blocks to reorder them rather than moving them around in the settings menu.
This is a normal preview here on the board: https://i.imgur.com/111pZXd.png
This is how it looks when I click the arrows button at the bottom next to the settings: https://i.imgur.com/bsw66Jq.png
I then just drag the bar above each section and rearrange them. It save automatically :)

I will really soon. I just want to get to somewhat of a stable version before I release it. This means both functionality and design wise.

Here is an update of what I worked on today: https://i.imgur.com/E36InKF.png

When clicking the new topic button a modal box shows up with a dropmenu where you can choose which forum you want to post in. If you can post in it, it will bring up a form. If not it will throw out a notification in the bottom right hand corner next to the sidebar letting you know you can't post in that forum.
A demo of it working so far :)

Thank you zbug!

I've made some updates to the webpage -> http://zetaboards.pro/pages/zbchrome/
To follow more about the development of the extension and throw in your ideas for me to include people can follow the dev log here: http://zetaboards.pro/topic/10337025/

And in doing so changed the whole coding for webpages for the ZetaBoards Pro theme for anyone wishing to use the theme as a base for their own theme.

I'm posting an update for anyone interested. The Admin CP is being restyled. I'd really appreciate some feedback on its design. The topmenu is a dropdown list rather than a complete list in the sidebar.

@zbug - Thank you! I always thought the Admin CP was far too long and required far too much scrolling. So I thought a simpler design might be better.

@Lothlómendil - I'm glad you like it! Thank you very much! I'm just working on the Quick Reply and then done with a first release. So it should be soon. :)

Can you add a color chooser that replaces the green color you use across the pages?

That would be a good idea. I'll look into that. :) Thanks for the suggestion!

If anyone sees this. The last thing to do before I release the first version is to have a nice icon for it! Any and all ideas would be greatly appreciated!

--- EDIT

I tried my hand at it.
