SteemPlus 2.5 : Integration of Steemit More Info features
Steemit More Info is a great extension and I have a lot of respect for @armandocat and his work. He didn't show up for over five months however and the Steemit interface has changed since then.
Since his code is opensource, I have decided to fix it and integrate it into my extension SteemPlus. Our code structures being very different, this was a two men jobs for several weeks but we're finally done.
The major features have been implemented, read on to learn about them. Installation information at the end. SteemPlus is available on Chrome, Firefox and Opera.
The update will be live in less than an hour.
If you keep using both SteemPlus and Steemit More Info after the update, you might have some duplicate features. To fix that, either uninstall Steemit More Info (recommended) or go to SteemPlus settings (on the extension popup) and disable Steemit More Info features.

Login via SteemConnect
Before accessing the SteemPlus features, you first need to connect using SteemConnect v2. SteemConnect is very safe and is the standard way to give access to Steem Apps.
Simply click the gray SteemPlus logo and it will start the login via SteemConnect. Follow the instructions and add your private key. Once done you will be redirect to the page you were before and see that the SteemPlus logo has turned blue:
Congratulations! You now have access to all the features!
Adding two new functions to the user dropdown on Steemit:
- Direct access to Market
- Base price from the blockchain
- STEEM/USD price (Coinmarket API)
- SBD/USD price (Cryptonator API)
One click switch
Voting slider for Minnows
To access the voting slider, click on the popup and go to Upvote tab, make sure the url corresponds to what you want to upvote and click Upvote. For a comment, first click on the date to change the URL.
From the same popup you can also access the options to turn on and off the features.
True account value
On both Steemit and Busy, you can check the true value of your account (based on current value of SBD and Steem rather than an average).
You can find the delegation button in both Steemit and Busy wallets:
Simply fill the form and you will be redirected via SteemConnect to confirm. Note that you can undelegate directly from there and see who are your delegatees. If you undelegate, you won't be able to use your previously delegated SP during 7 days.
On Steemit you can now add beneficiaries to your posts and decide which percentage of your post they will receive.
Note the following:
- Beneficiaries rewards will be perceived on SP only
- @steem-plus will get a 5% reward
- You cannot exceed 100% obviously
- You cannot exceed 6 beneficiaries

I am working on SteemPlus on my free time because I think it can make Steemit/Busy better by adding some features. If you like my work, please upvote and resteem so that I can keep doing what I'm doing. Thank you ;)
