Is Capaldi more Tom-ish this season?

Apr. 23rd, 2017 09:21 am
[personal profile] miss_s_b posting in [community profile] doctorwho
There's been a couple of times in episodes where he's done a sudden mad grin and I've thought "that's very Tom", and then I was scrolling through the f-list this morning and saw this:

Peter Capaldi looking like Tom Baker

and genuinely did a double take. The wicked, crinkly, mischievous TOMNESS of that is just off-the-scale as far as I am concerned.

What do you guys think?

Images auto-resize (RESOLVED)

Apr. 21st, 2017 09:21 pm
[personal profile] prue84 posting in [community profile] style_system
Hi all. :)

I've just made the final step to import LJ to my dead DW account. I don't wish to bother with installing a custom style and picked "Argyle" theme from the ones available.

I just occurred into an issue that makes me go mad.

For years, LJ didn't resize the images in your entries, so if you have a pic bigger than the container (or even your screen), you just got the horizontal scrollbar.
Recently, though, LJ started to auto-resize them and in my LJ style they get resized to 500px. Aspect ration is respected. I was then forced to modify all my posts to add a link for the fullsize (xx_original.jpg) pic.

I should also note that in the html for the entry I always specify the width and height of every image.


On DW, though (or, at least, in the style I'm using) there is no resize. I tried to manually the code seen here and then add some variations of

.entry-content img {
max-width: 99%;
height: auto;
}


in the custom css, changing from "99%" to "100%" or "500px". Anyway, the point is that aspect ration is never respected, the image keeps the original height and therefore the images gets stretched.
Same post: on LJ and on DW. (put the max-width to 500px so you can visibly see the difference).

A research on google didn't help, the code above should be apparently enough. Is there any way to force the aspect ration to be mantained on my theme? I don't really want to edit every single post to change the width and height values (and doing calculations for every single image so to respect ration - see, open every image in image editor, scale to 500 and note down the new height value) and, at this point, I'm too much used to the image resized that I don't want to see the original size in the entry anymore.

I use Argyle for Crisped. My account is free.


Thank you. :)

Spinach Daal with Spiced Eggplant

This is really a mash-up of two recipes, with the ultimate aim of providing Sufficient Nutrients in a single meal. The first is Jack Monroe's Spinach & lentil daal, from their second book; the second recipe is the Epicurious Indian spiced eggplant recipe. Both have been customised by me, for me. (This means they are white girl versions of indian food. Caveat lector)

The importer has (mostly) caught up!

Apr. 19th, 2017 11:02 pm
[staff profile] denise posting in [site community profile] dw_maintenance
Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!

I'm terribly sorry, this is probably the wrong place to ask for help, but I'm doing it here anyway because I couldn't find the right place.

The table I have in my bio doesn't display the way it should and I just can't figure out what the problem is. Is this even fixable?
ETA: To be more specific, the cell widths & heights aren't right, although they're in the table code and cellpadding is set to 0.

[done] Dreamhack maintenance reminder

Apr. 19th, 2017 09:31 am
[personal profile] sophie posting in [site community profile] dw_dev
As mentioned in my last post, I will be taking the Dreamhack server down for maintenance in 30 minutes! I'll edit this post once it starts and again when it's back up.

10:04am BST: I have restricted logins to admins and am beginning the maintenance now. This will involve a reboot and some diagnostics before opening it back up.

10:58am BST: The maintenance is done, and logins are unrestricted again!

Make Subjects into Links?

Apr. 18th, 2017 04:46 am
[personal profile] lady_noremon posting in [community profile] style_system
I recently added the Tabular Indent layout to my DreamWidth using the [community profile] starlit tutorial, and the Tabular Indent source code from InsaneJournal. Then changing all the ""friends"" to ""read"". Everything is working really well, except the Subjects are not links for some reason? I saw on previous posts that cited Flexible Squares having this issue to use the [community profile] starlit version of the code. But as Tabular Indent isn't one of their edited codes, I'm not sure where I would change? Thank-you very much if you can help!
[personal profile] sophie posting in [site community profile] dw_dev
Hi all,

I'm going to need to schedule some maintenance for the Dreamhack server as I've just discovered that the quota settings haven't taken effect. I'm therefore going to schedule maintenance for Wednesday 2017-04-19, 10am BST (5am EDT, 2am PDT) (about 36 hours from now) for up to 2 hours. (It shouldn't actually take that long, but I'm reserving it just in case.)

This maintenance will involve a reboot of the Dreamhack server. I will also be restricting logins until the maintenance is done, as the nature of the maintenance means that it will need as little data modification done as possible.

I'll post again once the maintenance starts, and edit that post when it ends.

Couple of quick questions (RESOLVED)

Apr. 17th, 2017 01:53 pm
[personal profile] gdelgiblueeyes posting in [community profile] style_system
Hiya, folks!

The (unwieldy) name is gdelgiblueeyes, but you can just call me "Blue Eyes."

My community [community profile] johnheartpaul has recently migrated from LJ to DW (ToS issue), and we've been finding the process very user-friendly and trouble-free (well, once I figured out the style settings stuff and had imported our journal's default style behind the custom CSS with the help of this link), with the minor exception of a couple of snags that I was hoping maybe style_system could help with.
  1. In comparing our profile here to our LJ counterpart, you will note that in the nav.strip, we didn't have Tags or Memories listed at LJ, and we'd like to keep it that way. Is there any way to make that work?
  2. Our custom style for the journal was designed for the new wave of LJ, where individual posts on the main page linked to a generic entry format (for example, clicking "Leave a Comment" -- or the entry's title -- on the first entry presently on my page would lead to something like this) instead of a separate page in our custom format. I'm guessing there's no way to replicate this specific experience, but viewing the comment form on a sample entry from the present DW incarnation will show you just how clunky it looks in our custom format. Anyone wanna troubleshoot how to make it look less like ass?
UPDATE: Thanks to [personal profile] healingmirth  for their help! All issues are resolved.

I basically inherited the task of porting this thing over here for mods who are way less tech-savvy, but my own skill only goes so far. Any help would be very much appreciated! (The tags are also a total guess, so anyone who knows more and runs things, feel free to put better ones on here. Thanks!)
