Three more requests
That was awesome @frissdiegurke , the first worked great and got me to rethink some other stuff too. The second was for the recent replies, and worked great. I couldnt edit it to work right for the categories on the lavendar homepage.
Also does anybody have an easy way to combine the overriding style sheet with the old style sheet?
/admin/themesis a tab named
To get the show/hide working with the recent replies within the categories of the home-page is kind of hard since you don't have a good value to limit the max-height since it's really different dependent on the replies.
So I'd say there is no good way to do it with css only, you'll need to get the height via js and animate it via css. To only show/hide the recent replies you'd have to wrap them within another html-tag too (can be done within templates/home.tpl of the theme).
that's the tab i've been using but i'm ready to just compile it into one style sheet without all the overrides. it creates a few problems doing it like this. It's great for learning what value is assigned to what but i'm making bigger and bigger changes to the template files, and i'm too lazy to merge the two style sheets by hand.
does this help at all? http://burnaftercompiling.com/nodebb/nodebb-hands-on-theming-guide-part-1/
- It would be awesome if someone changed the URL-to-image plugin so that if there were multiple images in a row it would combine them into a lightbox/slideshow with left/right arrows (similar to my blog @ http://krtong.com )
You mean, the imgbed plugin? someone's using this??
Isnt everyone??? Who actually likes to use codes while typing?
@kevin Haha -- as someone who grew up with computers, BBCode, WikiCode, Markdown all feel natural to me.
After a bit of practice, using
!()to format images just flows.
Of course you know. But if you've ever been part of a non-dev forum you've seen mods helping with embeds every other thread. I'm all for as much automation as possible.
Yeah, I completely get that sentiment. It's part of the reason why NodeBB uses Markdown instead of BBCode, since I code is more legible and (to me, anyways) makes more sense to the layman.
Still has a learning curve, though.
The thing with Markdown is once you get the hang of it, it feels so natural. On my forum (not public yet), I'm finding that it's a lot easier to post content using NodeBB than WP. Using Markdown just flow
by wp you mean html? See I'm fine using both, but they're still a language other than english that someone must learn. Im not a fan of making anyone learn a web language just so they can format their posts. Not a fan of wysiwyg either as it's glitchy and too involved. WYSIWYG is good for learning what code does what, but eventually you need to learn the code. I learned html because of pagemill, if anyone remember that pre-dreamweaver gem. problem is it taught me to use iframes when i was 17, which wasn't great either.
