stet/keith question or whoever is in charge of code these days

1) is it at all possible to make vimeo links embed like youtube does?

2) would it be possble to make youtube embeds be in 16:9 instead of 4:3?

youtube embeds are the raddest and i think its awesome they work so easy but these are just 2 suggestions to make them better

if its possible to do these 2 things w/o days and days of coding i think it would be cool!

thanks!

I'm not stet, Keith or in charge of code, but I can say that SBs are registering as they always have.

is it supposed to go to a white screen after you click the button?

sarahel, Thursday, 21 April 2011 03:41 (eleven years ago) link

hmmm, no, it's supposed to go back to the thread with the post that you SB'd. Hopefully stet will see this tomorrow morning UK time.

usually happens when you are banned from a subforum iirc, and no the SB doesn't register

Ah, ok, yes, you were banned from I Rate Everything a year ago for some reason.

yo whatever update you guys just did about 10 minutes ago... when i click "bookmark" on a post it jumps me back to the top of the page now... anyway to change it back?

⚓ (gr8080), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 21:56 (ten years ago) link

From looking at the logs, most ppl click "Bookmark" then choose another of their bookmarks to read. So the thinking here is that it jumps you back to your bookmarks to save you scrolling or w/e.

It's taking a bit of getting used to, I admit. Can we give it a couple of days?

stet, Tuesday, 31 January 2012 21:58 (ten years ago) link

yeah i was a bit thrown by that, but i can see getting used to it

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 22:00 (ten years ago) link

Saves a helluvalot of pressing on page up/home to go to the next bookmarked thread!

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 22:01 (ten years ago) link

haha ok.

i was totally unaware until you changed it, but i guess my pattern is get to last post/post i want to stop on -> click bookmark -> read last post -> click permalink (so last post is now at top of page) -> pick from remaining bookmarks

so i guess you're saving me some clicks, i just need to re-train myself

From SNA, I open a bookmarked thread in a new tab, click 'Bookmark' in that thread, then open a new bookmarked thread from my SNA tab. So I do what the logs indicate, but not in the way it looks in the logs.

Ha, this is brilliant, and 2 hours ago would've saved me the trouble of looking up how to do Page Up/Home on a MacBook Pro (not before I accidentally managed to shut it down by pressing some combo of Apple key and what looked like it might be a Page Up button).

Thanks!

Les Tressle (useless chamber), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 22:12 (ten years ago) link

I don't like it, personally. But I do *tend* to read the last post before clicking the button, so I guess I can live with it if I have to. I usually click to SNA rather than other bookmarks.

This goes for me too, my fingers on my laptop - both hands - are still going to shift(left) + pgUp/Home (right). I *want* to get used to this.

Ahh the simple joys in life... Stet <3

I should point out that I don't care either way – my post was an explanation of what I do, not a complaint about the change.

Mordy, Wednesday, 1 February 2012 18:27 (ten years ago) link

yeah not feeling it.

another thing: if i bookmark something and then select that same bookmark once it jumps to the top of the page (like say i walked away from my computer for a while), it will take me to the OLD bookmark from that page

mostly i just dont like jumping back to the top of the page in general

it is p unusual and appy tho, just my pro opinion

it's not so bad that i'd quit ilx over it (i'd probably chew the tips off my fingers before i quit ilx) but i do find it deeply unpleasant and would prefer the option to turn it off

Mordy, Wednesday, 1 February 2012 23:48 (ten years ago) link

i really like the way bookmarking works now tbh

I tend to rely on my browser's turning a viste3d link pink/the "new posts" unfilled dot. So when the site gets rebooted and they all clear, Im completely lost haha.

dollar sign has special meaning in regexp substitutions, i think the literal dollar sign, followed by a number, confuses things when it's replacing links

I wouldn't say I use it "a lot." Usually around bedtime or when I want to reset a bookmark that a killfile has made the last post on.

Thank you! But don't turn on anything just for me.

but i swear it used to look more like chrome still does:
http://www.koogy.clara.co.uk/Screenshot_chrome.jpg

seeing those both together it looks like a font weight thing, maybe a letter spacing thing. the firefox titles do look slighter than they used to. it's perhaps a bit more noticeable when the title is short.

the hide text thingy is grebt but seems to be thwarted by line breaks -- could its effects be made to continue (like other such tags) until it reaches a /hiddentext ?

mookieproof, Saturday, 4 December 2021 01:05 (one year ago) link

that would mean it would have to start in one div and end in another, which is hard. ie

div first paragraph with some h hidden text /div

div second paragraph, still hidden /h visible again /div

(the divs might need p tags but same thing)

koogs, Saturday, 4 December 2021 01:24 (one year ago) link

okay, no worries -- thanks!

mookieproof, Saturday, 4 December 2021 01:35 (one year ago) link

You can fake paragraphs.
.
By having a minor piece of punctuation on the "break" lines.

bobo honkin' slobo babe (sic), Saturday, 4 December 2021 03:49 (one year ago) link

Just tested this on HTML Playground: it seems to work even with a space as your "minor piece of punctuation" on the line between the faked paras.

do tweet embeds not work anymore? just wondering if it's my browser/adblocker. they appear as blockquotes but don't load as embeds, for me.

towards fungal computer (harbl), Thursday, 16 December 2021 15:02 (eleven months ago) link

fwiw i have a pretty aggressive privacy/adblock setup that causes tweets to behave like that for me

call all destroyer, Thursday, 16 December 2021 15:23 (eleven months ago) link

I disable javascript (using noscript in firefox for example) and that prevents the twitter embeds.

Kim Kimberly, Thursday, 16 December 2021 16:38 (eleven months ago) link

your adblocker might have an option to filter out social or "share" stuff. that usually breaks embedded tweets.

hi stet, youtube embedding is great, but would be cool to teach the regex not to try to embed links to youtube channels (which don't work), e.g. this post got mangled. obviously this is not the end of the world.

Hi there, what's the best method of pasting an image on a thread these days?

Maresn3st, Monday, 17 January 2022 23:59 (ten months ago) link

Still [ img ] tags. You have to put the address of an image file in between the tags, not a web page, and if you link to an image on a major social media platform, it won’t display for many people.

dark end of the st. maud (sic), Tuesday, 18 January 2022 01:01 (ten months ago) link

an integrated image thingie would be amazing but imgur works pretty well. as others have said, the ios “post to imgur” shortcut makes this a very slick process.
