I posted a question on Meta Stack Overflow, and from there I was directed to install this script.

When trying to install the script in Chrome, I get the following error:

Apps, extensions and user scripts cannot be added from this website.

Is there another way I can get the script or similar extension for Chrome?

  • This is off topic here. Belongs on Super User. It's just a standard script-install question, even if it's about a script listed on this site. Commented Jun 29, 2013 at 6:23
  • No that post is announcing /releasing/posting the script. There's a difference. Also installing scripts is already covered here, plus on Super User, plus on Stack Overflow. General script-install questions go in Super User. Programming script questions go on Stack Overflow. Actual scripts for Stack Exchange or questions about the SE API go here.

    No need to delete. If enough people agree it's a duplicate it will get closed. (It may take a few days on this site.) Not all closed questions are deleted and dupes can have value in pointing searches to the right location. Commented Jun 29, 2013 at 6:38
  • (1) That's not Super User -- where the question belongs (if it wasn't a dupe)! (2) Why did you do that? You already have your answer. Commented Jun 29, 2013 at 6:53

You have two options:

1. Tampermonkey

  1. Install Tampermonkey for Chrome;
  2. Click the script to install it.

2. Vanilla Chrome

  1. Copy the code and save it to a file called anything.user.js;
  2. In Chrome, go to chrome://extensions/ (Tools > More Tools > Extensions);
  3. Open the folder you saved the script to and drag it onto the Extensions dialog.
