Thought I’d give somebody the opportunity to hit the like button.

tjb must be feeling much better. New and revised features are showing up on the board. ;D


#2

is the formatting of the posts kinda screwy now as a result for everybody? it puts a huge ~15-line break space from where the like button is down to where a person’s post starts.

i’m using chrome, for the record. looks kinda ugly, hope it doesn’t stay that way (or at all).

Looks fine to me and I use Chrome too.

actually i just refreshed and the spacing looks better. still rather annoying, but looks much better.

Now, some posts seem to have a space limit. (seems like mostly non-quoted posts but even some quoted posts) You now have to inefficiently scroll up and down within a post to read more than a few lines. I could provide a screenshot if you like. Like in the 4 four posts of this thread, only UncleLar’s 3rd quoted post doesn’t have the scrolling arrows. Posts 1, 2, and 4 you have to scroll up and down to read the post to make room for the Like and Signup for Facebook. Don’t like seeing a facebook sign up icon on every post. The format doesn’t need to be changed. It’s simple it worked. Do we really need to see a line on every post reminding us to sign up for facebook?

Each post has a scrollbar, even if a small post.

It seems the Facebook bar is getting in the way

Yea, it’s a tad annoying. If tjb goes into the CSS - style.css file and finds the 303 line, then the .post, .personalmessage class and change the overflow: auto; to overflow: hidden; that’ll fix it.

If anyone’s looking for opinions…I like the new “quote” format but I don’t like the Facebook bar…

That’s awesome. While I was out, Facebook changed its API (no surprise there) and Twitter changed its authentication method. So the widgets I had installed were broken, and I tried this new one last night. I tried to fix the problem Craftsy noticed by limiting the height of the containing DIV, but I only see the scrollbar on a post or two. I’m going to move the “Like” button to just the first post in a thread, which should reduce the troubles. I’ll try the overflow value, too.

One problem here is for the first time since 1985, I am Microsoft free. (I owned Windows 1, for gosh sake!) So I am not testing on the platform that most people use. I’m getting a Windows machine at work within the next week – the big all-in-one touchscreen, paid for by the disability insurance company that wants to stop paying me really wants me to feel productive and worthwhile by getting back to work.

Good changes. I like the way things look now.

pennstateno1’s change looks excellent, too. I’m using Rockmelt, which sits on Chrome, on a Mac. Chime in if anyone sees any problems.

Looks much better this morning for me also. No scroll bars, just the like button at the very top. Good stuff. :slight_smile:


#13

I like it :wink:


#14

You computer geeks are way over my head, wish I knew what you were talking about. But I enjoy the commentary, except the constant negative comments on Ed. They make their point and the beat it to death.


#15

I always thought that Rockmelt caused the Chrome to rust on a Mack


#16

Great job tjb. Looks fine now!
