  • The “Disable HTML detection” option has been hidden, it limited functionality and users accidentally turn it on without understanding what it really does
  • The usual bug fixes and performance improvements

There was some discussion about the categorization of some ponies, and after some deliberation and some visits to other fan sites, I have not decided in moving Lightning Dust, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon to the Antagonists list yet. However, Iron Will has been taken off the list and moved to Others.

You might be wondering why it’s mostly all about changing the look of Ponyhoof Options and there are no additions for Rainbow Power or the Season 4 ponies. It’s all about the big changes under-the-hood, and I would also like to revamp the theme management internals as well. (Putting two major code changes in a single update is a bad idea :P)

The appearance options we have today only change the news feed image at the right and it is quite limited, but with the new system I’m planning, more dramatic changes such as changing the cutie mark is possible. This would be used for Rainbow Power, we do have the pony images already, but we decided that a simple image change (like what we did for other appearances) isn’t going to be enough.


  • If you cannot update Ponyhoof on Chrome, then please make sure your Chrome is up-to-date. The Chrome Web Store is beginning to block old versions of Chrome, this is something that we cannot control.
  • We will most likely not release a separate edition for old versions of Chrome, as you’ll have trouble installing other extensions such as Adblock anyway.

Thanks for the response to our sneak peek a few days ago! (y)

Here’s what the rest of the list looks like :)

We need your help in categorizing the list, check out our main page and discuss! https://www.facebook.com/Ponyhoof

Here’s a sneak peek into what we’re working on next for Ponyhoof…


so i was literary just on Facebook with the Ponyhoof settings and this happened


Shocking! :O

The moment when you realize that Season 4 is about to end.

(Tumblr busted this GIF from animating >_> )

Want to annoy your friends? Facebook now accepts animated GIFs in chat for some lucky people*… yeah…

Find a link to a .gif file, paste it into chat, wait for the image preview to show and then send!

And no, I don’t know why they thought this is a good idea :P

(Video version)

* If you or your friend is not lucky, then no animation occurs, boo!

An extra (semi-serious) note about browser versions and compatibility:

Web browsers and technologies change often, and Ponyhoof uses some of these new technologies to build new features and improve performance. As a result, we are going to stop support for several outdated browsers:

  • Chrome version 17 and below
  • RockMelt
  • Safari on Windows
  • Firefox version 20 and below

If you are still using one of them, we encourage you to switch/update your browser for the best experience. Ponyhoof will still work, however the installer at http://jointheherd.little.my will not allow new installs of Ponyhoof in the future.

If you are not one of them, then no action is needed. Pony on :)

Well, looks like some designer is trying to put a subtle reference here ;)

(Note that the original link is geo-blocked to certain countries, it will most likely not work for you: https://www.facebook.com/coca-cola/photos/a.99394368305.88399.40796308305/10153178028038306/ but I can assure that this is real)
