Using the extension

To use the extension in the Chrome browser, click the Pluralsight icon to the right of the address bar. As you type a query, the extension will return recommendations. There are two tabs you can view:

Content will show you a list of Video courses, Paths, Projects, and Interactive courses that match your search terms.

Clips will show you specific clips from video courses that match your search terms.

Tip: If you’re looking for general information about a topic or want to dive into a new skill, Content is the right tab for you. If you’re looking for a very specific piece of information, try the Clips tab.

When you find a piece of content that interests you, click it to open a new tab that will take you that content on the Pluralsight Skills platform.

With the extension, you can also search for Pluralsight directly from Stack Overflow or from a text selection on a webpage.

Search from Stack Overflow

If you’re on an article on Stack Overflow, you’ll see a message below the article title that says Check Pluralsight for related content. If you click the content link, the Stack Overflow article will populate as a search term in a Pluralsight search page.

Search from text

You can also search for Pluralsight content by selecting text you see in your Chrome browser and then right-clicking on it.

Let’s say you’d like to learn more about Javascript. Just highlight Javascript on the website, right-click, then click Search Pluralsight for “Javascript.” "Javascript" will then populate as a search term in a Pluralsight search page.

If you’re looking for information about managing Chrome extensions in general, see Google’s detailed instructions (external site, opens in new tab).
