Waxpost (Weasyl Crossposter)

CRX id


Description from extension meta

This extension adds a 'Crosspost to Weasyl' button to various art sites.

Image from store Waxpost (Weasyl Crossposter)
Description from store For artists who wish to crosspost their visual art from other art sites to the art site Weasyl, Waxpost provides a simple button to create a new submission from an existing submission. Currently supported are the art sites deviantArt, Inkbunny, SoFurry, and FurAffinity, as well as the image sharing site imgur. Waxpost will, when viewing a submission on one of the aforementioned sites, add a Weasyl beret icon to the URL bar. Clicking this icon will open up the "new visual submission" page on Weasyl, prepopulated with as much information as Waxpost can gather. Note: imgur support requires viewing the image itself instead of a gallery page. The URL must start with http://i.imgur.com/ or https://i.imgur.com/. At the moment, only visual submissions are supported. Submitting any other type will result in undefined behavior.

Latest reviews

  • (2017-01-18) Shek Jael (Nesting): Doesn't work from FA if you use the Beta Version.
  • (2016-05-27) Darren G: Tremendously helpful for keeping my Weasyl gallery updated when I post to FA. Saves time, hassle, and a lot of copying/pasting/reformatting. It only makes me wish similar systems existed for the other gallery sites I use too!
  • (2016-05-23) Foxie Arts: Very good! I finished to transfer my stuff today. I just wish it could transfer my submissions all in a time. Except for that, the extension is almost perfect! Thank you very much.
  • (2016-04-05) milk boi: I really like this add on, but it only works on occassion and recently stopped working entirely for me, even after deleting and readding. I hope it gets fixed soon
  • (2015-11-30) Urbus Gurbus: I love Wax Post, however, it seems to have been abandoned. I would love it if they could convert :iconuser: text to the ones appropriate for Weasyl, or if they allowed cross posting from the FA beta, but it might be too much work to keep it updated alongside the beta. To everyone upset that it only works on visual art, the description reads "For artists who wish to crosspost their visual art from other art sites to the art site Weasyl". By downvoting something it wasn't made for, you're just squandering their ratings.
  • (2015-09-05) Oversized BowTies: It's wonderful and makes posting super easy and convenient. Just doesn't work with FA's beta version, which is fixable by switching back to classic.
  • (2015-06-13) VRArt1: Extremely useful. The only thing that would be better if it could also crossport from dA to FA.
  • (2015-05-12) Jack (Petrichor): Works perfectly, very quick and efficient.
  • (2014-12-02) Ashley Kuch: Liked it, but it needs an update. It has stopped working.
  • (2014-11-13) Honorah O'Neill: Very happy with it overall. Makes it much easier to keep gallery updated without having to do a lot of copy pastinging of descriptions and keywords.
  • (2014-10-22) Fox Gonzalez: Honestly, this is better than nothing. No complaints.
  • (2014-04-04) Alex Roman: I like how simple this is! I do wish that it could be extended somehow to allow for the functionality to post on one page, then have the same ability to post to other pages (not just Weasyl) I imagine that's a bit complex to create, but it would be nice. :3
  • (2014-02-19) Laney Traynor: Recently, I've been having problems with this app. It won't work with any of my visual submissions, but it used to! Other than that, I love it, great for visual artists like myself.
  • (2014-01-21) Dana L/T: This worked like a charm for moving my FA stuff over, but this does not work with DeviantArt. Hoping it'll work with DeviantArt, soon!
  • (2014-01-17) Indy North: needs to work for non visual work as well...
  • (2014-01-17) Michael Abrahams: Thanks for the excellent extension! I'd get great use out of an option to copy journals as well.
  • (2013-12-20) Senshi Saiza (GloKat): It auto takes you to a visual submission. As a musician, I can't use this for my multimedia submissions, which is kind of a pain. I wish they would update it to add that feature, so I could actually use it, as I am not a visual artist at all.
  • (2013-12-18) Kira Bean: for the people who were trying to figure it out; the icon appears when you look at one of your own FA images. then you just click it and tadah! very handy now that i know how it works XD
  • (2013-12-18) Alexandra Kaplan: Works perfectly and saves me so much time, I can now manage my galleries much more effectively.
  • (2013-12-17) Alkaris: Wow really nice useful extension! Saves me the trouble of having to re-enter all the same details from another site into Weasyl. One little instruction detail you should of put about this extension; How to use: To crosspost you must view the actual submission page on the site you wish to cross-transfer from, then click the icon in the browser address bar where it'll then open a new tab page to Weasyl with all the information gathered from it. just a little more clear on how to use the extension before people downrate this without knowing how to use it properly. -- Another useful feature that could be implemented to this extension is to read the way text is formatted on pages and try to copy it over when crossposting submissions from other sites to Weasyl. To read the hidden formatted tags that get rendered by the page, ie; [b][/b], <b></b>, etc... convert from BBCode and HTML
  • (2013-12-16) Matt Ebel: Did not work with MP3's on FurAffinity. As both FA and Weasyl support MP3 submissions, this surprised me.
  • (2013-12-15) Boomer: Does not add anything to the bar and cannot do anything on the sites this is supposed to work on. I am disappointed in this due to this problem.

  • (2020-10-29, v:0.3.2) Kelly “STrRedWolf” Price: Broken on FA
    Completely broken on FA. Can't crosspost to backfill Weazyl...
  • (2019-05-16, v:0.3.2) Runzi JM (Runzi333): No longer works
    No longer works on DA
  • (2019-05-16, v:0.3.2) Runzi JM (Runzi333): No longer works
    I can't even get the pop up on DA anymore?
  • (2018-07-12, v:0.3.2) Garrett Williams: No longer works with DA
    Used to only work with DeviantArt. Now it doesn't even work on that.
  • (2017-04-28, v:0.3.2) Cynthia M. Turner: FA>> Weasyl?
    I'm trying to put my posts from FA to Weasyl, but it's not letting me do it! I press the button several times and nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong???
  • (2016-03-15, v:0.3.0) milk boi: not longer working with inkbunny
    No longer seems to work with inkbunny, giving an 'The image you uploaded was unable to be decoded.' error when attempting to upload inkbunny and weasyl are the only art sites i use atm, so it'd be nice to see a fix
  • (2016-03-12, v:0.3.0) Max “Bitcoon” Baily: Only compatible with non-beta FA
    The button no longer shows up on anything but Inkbunny and classic Furaffinity. It has also stopped working on IB, generating an error on the page when it tries to download the image. So if FA ditches support for the classic layout or Weasyl changes something, this extension will be completely useless.
  • (2016-01-06, v:0.3.0) Shenzai Bird: Crosspost from Weasyl
    It lets you crosspost from other art sites TO Weasyl, but it would be nice to also be able to crosspost FROM Weasyl to other sites. From a submission page on Weasyl, you'd click the icon on the toolbar, which would open a list of the available sites (maybe with an option in the settings to hide the ones you don't use). Then it would behave just as it does, but inverse.
  • (2015-09-05, v:0.2.0) Oversized BowTies: Problem Cross Posting With FA Beta Layout
    What Jacob Reidt mention is true. It's a small problem but it's not the end of the world, ya'know?
  • (2015-07-09, v:0.2.0) Rob P: SoFurry "UnOfficial Tags" Support
    When crossposting to Weasyl from SoFurry, if there are any tags that are marked under "unofficial tags," they don't carry over to weasyl. It's a bit of a pain cuz then one has to re-enter them manually, and if there's a lot of them... well you get the idea. Maybe add support for these? Otherwise this extension is great!
  • (2015-06-13, v:0.2.0) VRArt1: dA to FA
    I'd like to make a suggestion to expand on the extension (or making it another extension). Basically using the features you already have to make it possible to crosspost from deviantART to FurAffinity. This extension could be amazing if it could freely crosspost back and forth between the sites it allows. "Crosspost" extension.
