Add your own buttons to the picNiche toolbar

Thanks to many many requests from lots of people: the picNiche contributor toolbar can now be configured with your own pollers.

You can configure a poller to load a page from any website, to parse two separate values (one for the button text, and another for the tooltip) and have the result displayed on a button on the main toolbar….

    I just shared a custom button for DP but forgot to add the author name and website πŸ˜‰ – if you can fix this on the server that would be great … Thanks!

      Updated and available in the Get More list now.
      Thanks πŸ™‚

      • Rafal Olkis Says:

        The regexp code for balance is wrong … as far I remember I added such:

        Balance: \$(\d+\.\d+)

        And now we have:

        Balance: \$(\d+|\d+\.\d+)

        Which is wrong πŸ˜‰

        Thanks for the fix. Also the author name can’t be like it’s now – “+” char issue? (TEST failed) …

        • bobbigmac Says:

          Nice catch on the author field test cheers, I use a different UI to update existing ones lol πŸ™‚ Fixed so should work on update.
          Have also updated the regex to account for rounded figures (\d+ = 10, or 0 or 2776, \d+\.\d+ = 0.00, 746.1 or 12.12 for example)

    Hi Bob! Great day right?..

    Congrats and wish you more and more success from your fan,

    You fixed the ASCII problem at the same time! Great update! I’ve already updated mine!

  4. Matt Antonino Says:

    New suggestion: let me reorder the pollers. I hate that FT is first and not SS.

  5. Luis Santos Says:

    lol is that possible? gotta see that :p what will you put on first?

  6. Luis Santos Says:

    ah ok!

    I see vectorstock poller in free (another user maked this), but he did’nt work.

    May you correct poller for Vectorstock?

  8. Mike Says:


    I would like to remove the BigStockPhoto from the toolbar.
    Is that possible?


  9. Daniel Says:


    Thx for great tool. But there is a problem (olny me?) with 123RF stats. It shows incorrect (negative “-“) result in earned royalties.
    How to fix it? Could you do it?


    • bobbigmac Says:

      This is fairly common on 123RF, the problem is on their site, the toolbar is showing the right value as far as it knows, just their site occasionally displays a totally wrong one. I think it’s something to do with when the regenerate daily stats. There’s a post on their forums about it.
      Sorry, but nothing I can do 😦

    I just shared a custom button for Pond5. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    But the Custom poller for CSP from Get more list not working in my FF, I had to add new one for CSP, 😦 😦 😦 , Does anyone has same problem?

    • bobbigmac Says:

      Thanks πŸ™‚

      Aye, some pollers won’t work for all people. This is down to many possible reasons, though the most likely is localisation (this is language and/or location) where many sites will display slightly different info on a page. I’d guess CSP do this though I don’t submit there so can’t confirm.
      That’s why this custom button thing was needed, if a poller breaks, it can be edited to work again πŸ™‚

  11. speedo101 Says:

    When the custom pollers first came out the CSP one worked fine for me now it comes up with an error but as far as I am aware I have changed nothing in it. What can I do to make it work again?

    • Bob Davies Says:

      If someone sends me an update to the poller (or creates a new one and uses the share button) an update will become available on the Get More list. As I don’t submit there I can’t fix it from here sorry.

  12. bobbigmac Says:

    Awesome detailed post on setting up your own custom pollers over at StockPhotoSoft

  13. LostOne Says:

    How about one for opera?

    • bobbigmac Says:

      I’ve no plans at present to port to any other browser.
      It might function on Chrome in a future version as they have plans to incorporate firefox-like extension stuff.
