MTG Finder Chrome (1.4.0) and Firefox Extension (1.0.0)

After some months without updates, MTG Finder has returned with some new features and surprises. First of all, we'll describe Chrome Extension version changes and later Firefox Addon's.

MTG Finder Chrome Extension 1.4 Changes:

  • Black Lotus Project search. Now you can perform searches through BLP, which is a famous project that gives you live price charts directly from Magic Online Trading Leage. MTG Finder will show up a list of matching cards if there are more than one or directly the chart from BLP if there are only one matching. If a card is not found, a link to TCGPlayer will be displayed.
    Check the screenshots below.
    Black Lotus Project search with multiple results

    Black Lotus Project search with single result
  • Frame width and height selection. Now you can insert your preferred frame width and height, note that Chrome actually has an approximate maximum width of 800 pixels and height 600 pixels. This dimension change won't be applied for context menu or keyboard shortcuts opening new tab or windows.
  • Single context menu item for MTG Finder. Now you can select if you want only to have your preferred search mode on the context menu (unchecking Extended context mode) or all available search modes on it (checking Extended context mode).
    Unchecked Extended Context Menu
  • Fixed a recent bug caused by Chrome update that did make new windows and tabs open in a smaller frame that didn't fit the windows size. Chrome suddenly unrecognized the 95% for the height value, so now the height is calculated runtime as a workaround, so window resize won't affect frame size. Thank all of you that noticed this on the webstore.
  • UPDATED 30 october, MTG Finder version 1.4.1: Partially fixed an issue with Since doesn't allow to be included in a frame, it will be opened only for new tab/window search mode, so it won't work yet for MTG Finder popup. We apologize for the inconveniences, we're working to fix it.
  • New options page as shown below:
New options menu

Some weeks ago, MTG Finder 1.0.0 showed up on the Firefox Addon-Gallery after some compatibility problems with new Firefox versions and passing a full-review process. The new version includes these features already existing in the Chrome version:

  • Improved keyboard shortcuts
  • TCGPlayer search
  • Options pane menu
New TCGPlayer Search

We hope that you like these changes of MTG Finder. If you have any question or suggestion, this is your place to discuss it and if you liked them, score them with five stars on the stores!

Include MTG autocard popup in websites for non .blogspot domains

Some months ago we explained how to include MTG autocard popup by including directly our script from Google Sites. This mode is actually used by some MTG sites like Magic no MolaThought Experiment or MTG Fiction.

Unfortunately, scripts hosted in Google Sites can be included directly in your website only if you're using Blogger or other Google's tools, for the other sites, the direct access it's protected. So if you've tried to include the script and no popups appeared, this is your post.

To have those great popups into your non-blogger site, you need to include the autocard script and gatherer helper, so download them and upload them into your server. You will need to change the reference to gatherer helper in autocard script, just in this line (48):


Other way is to download the Standalone script, that doesn't need reference changes but won't be updated (you can perfectly do it).
If you don't have a server to host javascripts, you can use free javascript hosting services like Your Javascript, which allows you to host and free access to it. So to replace the bold url with your hosted script or just leave it like this, it will work even in no blogger servers:

<script type="text/javascript">
     URL_START = ""; 

<script src="" type="text/javascript">

For the linking rules, follow the lines described on the old post.

MTG Wishlist 2.2 Chrome Extension with TCGPlayer

MTG Wishlist new version is here with new features that we'll describe below, but first, we'd like also to introduce our new partner: As we said in the MTG Finder 1.3 announcement, TCG Player is a famous webstore that includes several prices from other stores. If you don't know it, what are you waiting to visit it?

MTG Wishlist 2.2 Changes:
  • TCG Player column inserted. It contains 3 values corresponding to card prices: minimum price, average price and maximum price. Those prices are taken from all the webstores included in tcgplayer. To check the card you'll only need to click one of these values.
    Card prices are in US dollars and depend on the current expansion set. If no expansion set is selected or it doesn't match with tcgplayer's sets (maybe because tcgplayer doesn't support them, like some special sets), the field will link the tcgplayer homepage. To use this service, card names must be in english.
    If you want to checkout your wishlist in tcgplayer, you can do it only by clicking the column header "Price TCGP".
    Global TCG Player data are loaded every 24 hours, when the browser starts or clicking the refresh button (maybe you suffer some wait delay if you want to see your wishlist when it's loading TCG Player or Blackborder data).

    New Price TCGP column

  • Card images now depends on the selected expansion set. If no expansion set is selected, the default card image will be shown. Not every expansion set is supported, like special sets or promo decks.
    Card images are displayed directly from the wizards database, so it's possible to not see some expansion sets until wizards uploads them (at this moment, commander and m12 pictures are not available). I've done the request to wizards, I'm sure that they'll fix it soon.
  • Card prices auto-change if expansion set is changed and prices are different.
  • Key shortcuts have been included. Now you can open MTG Wishlist in a new window instead of a popup only with shortcuts. Set the combination in the options page.
  • Loading times have been decreased. Editing a card will no longer reload the app unless you want to delete it.
New options page

Known issue: when the last card image popups, it won't be visible unless the scrollbar is present (to see the scrollbar, you must have a few of cards inserted in order to cover frame height).

MTG Wishlist can be downloaded from the Chrome Webstore.

I hope that you like the new features. Of course, you're welcome to post here any suggestion, comment or complain.

Include Social Network buttons in your Blogger posts

Social networks are actually the most important traffic source in the web. Including buttons is a good way to socialize your blog. Here we'll show some tips to include buttons in your website, particularly in Blogger.


The first tool you must know is AddThis. It integrates a lot of social network buttons (349 at the moment) in several languages in one widget with a few code lines. It also provides analytics services and trend statistics. To include AddThis in your website, you only need to follow the instructions of the following link: Get AddThis (select the blogger option to see blogger's instructions).

For example, here's the code used in this blog:

<!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
 <div class='addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style' expr:addthis:title='data:post.title' expr:addthis:url='data:post.url'>
  <a class='addthis_button_compact' href=';username=yourusername'>Share</a>
  <a class='addthis_counter addthis_bubble_style'/>
  <span class='addthis_separator'>|</span>
  <a class='addthis_button_preferred_1'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_preferred_2'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_preferred_3'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_preferred_4'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_stumbleupon'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_delicious'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_digg'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_google_plusone' g:plusone:size='small'/>
 <div class='addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style' expr:addthis:title='data:post.title' expr:addthis:url='data:post.url'>
  <a class='addthis_button_facebook_like'/>
  <a class='addthis_button_tweet' tw:via='themunsonsapps'/>
  <!-- Reddit button start -->
  <script>reddit_url=&#39;<data:post.url/>&#39;</script><script>reddit_title=&#39;<data:post.title/>&#39;</script><script language='javascript' src=''/>
  <!-- Reddit button end -->
 <script type='text/javascript'>var addthis_config = {&quot;data_track_clickback&quot;:true};</script>
 <script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
 <!-- AddThis Button END -->

That looks like this:

Remember to include it before the <div class='post-footer'> tag if you're using Blogger.

Although it allows full customization using its API, it has some display limitations. Maybe you want the button to have a different layout or to display counters that AddThis not implements. This is the case of social networks buttons with counters like reddit, digg, stumbleupon and much more.


There's a form to include facebook buttons in your website, you only need to insert the URL to like, facebook account and layout params like font, color or width.
You can choose the kind of button:

And much more. Once again, to include them in in Blooger, insert the code just after <div class='post-footer'> tag in your template.


Twitter API is available here. There are several kinds of button, languages and customization.

For example:

<a href="" class="twitter-share-button" data-url="" data-count="vertical" data-via="themunsonsapps">Tweet</a><script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Try this button:

You can also set the predefined text, account to suggest, url to tweet and more. Visit the full dev API for Tweet Button. See also how to add Twitter button to Blogger.

Google +1

Google plus one is the new Google's social network. To include a button in your website, you only need to fill some form fields from the official +1 button site and paste the code where you want. To include it in blogger you can follow these tips.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<g:plusone size="tall" href=""></g:plusone>

Check the generated button:


Check the different reddit buttons and them customizations here: Reddit Buttons.

<script type="text/javascript">
  reddit_url = "";
  reddit_title = "Reddit Buttons!";
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Reddit this sample:

To include it in every Blogger post, search once again for the <div class='post-footer'> tag and insert the code after it, but in this case, set the url parameter to: <data:post.url/> (see how to add reddit button to every Blogger post).

For example:

<script type="text/javascript">
  reddit_url = "<data:post.url/>";
  reddit_title = "Reddit Buttons 2!";
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>


The official website for inserting delicious buttons can be found here. Here there is a sample of what will you get:

Bookmark this sample button in delicious:
Delicious Bookmark this awesome website on Delicious

<img src="" height="10" width="10" alt="Delicious" /><a href="" onclick="''+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title), 'delicious','toolbar=no,width=550,height=550'); return false;"> Bookmark this awesome website on Delicious</a>

To include it in every Blogger post, you will need to make other changes, check them at add delicious button to Blogger post.


Just like delicious, you can insert a digg button with counter in your website following the official guidelines.

Digg this sample button:
<script type="text/javascript">
(function() {
var s = document.createElement('SCRIPT'), s1 = document.getElementsByTagName('SCRIPT')[0];
s.type = 'text/javascript';
s.async = true;
s.src = '';
s1.parentNode.insertBefore(s, s1);
<!-- Wide Button -->
<a class="DiggThisButton DiggWide" href=""></a>

Check the blogging tips about how to add digg button to Blogger post.


SumbleUpon buttons are named badges. You can consult the official badge setup here. It also includes guidelines for blogger, feedburner, wordpress and more. You can choose the button layout and style, including a default url or getting it from the actual website, for example this:

<script src=""></script>

I hope this can be useful for you! Enjoy it!
