How do I install extensions?



  • How do I install extensions, where do I get them?

    Also, is that info listed in a FAQ somewhere or something? Because I couldn't see any

    thanks



  • You can install extensions from the Chrome Web Store

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions?hl=en-US

    You can get there by navigating the Menu -> Tools -> Extensions -> Get new extensions. The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+E

    FAQ: https://help.vivaldi.com/article/extensions/



  • Thanks!

    I humbly suggest that the help site should be included in the main navigation of the home page and/or community area.

    @clum: When you select "Help" in the menu it takes you to the help site.

    All,

    Thanks for this thread.

    I concur that the help menu is available at [https://help.vivaldi.com/article/extensions/](link url).

    My problem was that I was in the Help system looking for "Add-ins" ... and so I didn't find "Extensions" ... I know that I am a dinosaur using all those old browsers, but maybe Vivaldi could add tagging to help topics so that "related" terms might help people like me find data quicker? Just a suggestion.

    I am guessing what clum was suggesting is that next to the horizontal selection for Browser/Features/Newsroom/Blog/Community, maybe a Help button would beneficial. I would have. I know there is a link at the bottom of the page. My first inclination for attracting new users is to provide them with "dead-simple" access to help; I find that many users will stop using a new app because they are not familiar with the interface.

    Thanks again for your help and consideration. :-)



  • By the way, is there a way to install a CRX-extension from local disk w/o dropping it to vivaldi://extensions? I run Vivaldi under another user account so drag and drop doesn't work here, and I don't see any button or menu item allowing to select CRX-extension from disk.

    Of course I can run Total Commander under Vivaldi's user account and drag files from it, but I believe there should be a more convenient way.



  • @MVV_ Activate developer mode in extensions and load it unpacked. You have to unzip it beforehand of course. That's probably not what you want, but I don't know another way.



  • @luetage,
    It is an option of course, but it is a debug option, and it doesn't keep extension id...
    Well, I've added a feature request.
