Pixiv Links

Post by softfang » Fri Sep 17, 2010 11:14 pm

I am familiar with Pixiv, but as it stands, I cannot understand that site. Even with Google Translate on, it's hard for me to figure out how links work and how to view full images rather than the thumbnails. Among other things, such as just roaming around and stuff. I wish they'd make an English version of Pixiv already. D:>

So... I have a suggestion.

Could we please put the links in the Misc. Data, while we make artist tags to fit as well? >_<;

I know to view a full image on pixiv you need to have an account on there.

If your having trouble understanding the pixiv site, I suggest using this guide:
http://lc-theory.net/works/extras/pixiv-english-guide/

It's helpful in understanding certain things, I used this in the very beginning to make an account on there since I wasn't used to the Japanese text at all. So I hope this helps you a bit as well~! ^_^

If you're using Firefox: Install Greasemonkey (click) -> then Install this script (click).
If you are using Google Chrome just install the script.

The Shuu wiki has a tutorial section you might want to read.

Should work... I had no problems installing it after installing Greasemonkey~ >=/
In case you make it work.... well you need Firefox over 3.5. And my Chromium (NOTE: CHROMIUM, not Google Chrome, even thou they are the same, they aren't... if u use Google Chrome I dunno what you should do....).

That script works perfectly fine to translate the Pixiv buttons on Google Chrome. However, to translate the words, you have to use the Google Translate App and set it to "Always translate Japanese".

You still have to use Japanese to search, though. Just use Wiki to find the name.

I only used Google translate to translate the sign up information. xD
as for everything else, I've not translated that. e.e
but SINCE THIS THREAD IS HERE.
I think I will download that script. xD

Old thread is old, but there is an English version of Pixiv now, although not everything is translated and artist names and tags are of course not translated either.

Instructions to change your Pixiv language settings are here: http://dev.pixiv.net/archives/1381098.html

Oh right. If it doesn't work on Chrome, install Tampermonkey. Then reinstall the script.
