Enable NSFW emotes
Several emotes in BetterPonymotes are strongly NSFW in nature, going as
far as to be explicitly pornographic. This option does not cover every
emote that you might consider questionable- with a handful of difficult
exceptions, the emotes it blocks all contain actual genitalia.
Enable extra emote modifiers
BetterPonymotes includes a copy of the Chaos script, a collection of
flags and modifiers on emotes. These do things like make emotes spin
in multiple dimensions. These can be problematic on some computers.
Note that the 3D spin flags do not work on Opera.
Show placeholders for unknown emotes (may conflict with other emote scripts)
When BetterPonymotes encounters a link that appears to be an emote, but
it doesn't know about it, it generates a small placeholder to show you.
This can conflict if you have other emote scripts that are converting
the emotes, as BPM doesn't know about these. Turn this off if you are
having conflict problems.
Hide disabled emotes completely (no placeholders)
When BPM encounters an emote you have disabled through any means, it
generates a small placeholder. This option turns them off, trying to
make them seem to be nonexistent.
Stealth mode: Minify all emotes by default
If this option is enabled, BPM will hide all emotes by default by
minifying them, as if they were disabled.
As the click toggle isn't available globally, this
option only works on Reddit.
Reveal hidden alt-text
This option controls the alt-text expander, which displays alt-text on
emotes next to the image. When BPM does this, it also replaces the
actual alt-text with emote information, including its name and where it
Convert emotes outside of Reddit
Enables the global emote converter. BPM will scan every page you visit
for text that looks like (/emote) and attempt to
convert it into real emotes.
Show the emote search globally
Shows a small box on every page to bring up the emote search, for use
with global emote conversion. You can hold Ctrl down to drag the box
When I click a disabled emote, only show SFW emotes
When BPM disables an emote and leaves a placeholder, you can click on
it to expand it in order to see what it is. Ordinarily, BPM will refuse
to do this for NSFW emotes. This option disables that check.
Search result limit: (high values can slow down search)
BPM has over 8000 emotes, and some search queries return massive amounts of
them, which can freeze your browser. This option imposes a maximum on the
number of results you can get. A few hundred is safe and recommended.
Maximum emote size: (zero is no limit)
Emotes larger than this size will be disabled. This can help if you
find some of the more massive emotes in BPM annoying.
BPM includes emotes from many different subreddits.
You may enable or disable them individually to your preference.
Emotes listed here will be blocked.
Emotes listed here will be shown, even if they would
otherwise not be. This overrides every other option.
BPM can download and apply CSS from specific subreddits.
Emotes from them will be handled as if they were built in.
Caveats: BPM tries to remove all non-emote CSS, but
its method is not perfect. Any unwanted side-effects are your own
