Note - paulj

With javascript on, when I submit a story using the submit story link, and use the preview function, the background of the preview is solid red. Not just the header, the body as well.

This is getting too big, and much of it has nothing to do directly with css, so I have moved this index to:


Unanswered Questions

  • The templates are individually output by routine slashDisplay(), but how is the order of delivery determined, and how does one insure a new template goes to the right place on the page?
  • The users home page link goes to /my/homepage. I can find no apache redirect for this nor is there a 'my' folder anywhere. I am guessing this is done in the apache perl module, through some redirects that hook into Apache innards. It is hard to be sure what script is actually being called first. I am assuming it is users. Once an edit is made, you are in /users.pl without /my/
  • Two users scripts, users,users2 Am guesssing users2 is for the d2 interface we are not using, since the forms on the page call users.pl


  • There are actually four mysterious redirects:
    • /my/
    • soyenltnews.org/~audioguy/ redirects to my user pageg overriding the apache userdir.
    • The index page is either .pl or shtml, other pages too in some cases ?
    • The page authors.pl ALWAYS redirects to authors.shtml and there MAY be others like this. Most .pl pages do not however.

From the install script:

# this directive will redirect non-logged-in users to
    # index.shtml if they request the home page; turn it
    # on to help increase performance or if you are using something
    # other than index.pl for the index
    PerlTransHandler Slash::Apache::IndexHandler

    # this directive will display a user's pages at /~username

Got tired of scrolling through pages of perl code just to see what subs were in a module

So wrote this, now in /usr/local/sbin/listsubs.sh:

[root@slashcode Slash]# listsubs.sh Admin.pm
Admin.pm:
    addSpriteForSid, ajax_authorbox, ajax_learnword, ajax_neverdisplay, 
    ajax_perfbox, ajax_signoff, ajax_signoffbox, ajax_slashdbox, 
    ajax_storyadminbox, ajax_sub_memory, DESTROY, extractRelatedStoriesFromForm, 
    findTheTime, getAccesslogAbusersByID, getAccesslogMaxID, get_ispell_comments, 
    getRecentSubs, getRecentWebheads, getRelated, getSignoffData, 
    getStorySignoffs, getStoryThumbLargeLink, grantStoryPostingAchievements, otherLinks, 
    relatedLinks, showAdminTodo, showAuthorActivityBox, showPerformanceBox, 
    showSignoffBox, showSlashdBox, showStoryAdminBox, write_to_temp_file, 

Also will work from a list, as in

ls *.pm > list.tst
listsubs.sh < list.txt

Maybe someone else will find it useful as well.


Order css files are loaded when simple switch on user prefs page is selected viewing main page main page

  • base.css?T_2_5_0_272 The numbers are the slash verion number (from one of the docs).
  • slashcode.css?T_2_5__0_272
  • slashcode_lite.css?T_2_5__0_272
  • slashcode_lite.css?T_2_5__0_272 (appears to be loading this twice,why?)
  • print.cssT_2_5__0_272

Follow a page link from the main page to an individual article page

article.pl

I believe that we are not using FireHose but it was needed to make the site work. As can be seen in the db dump above, it adds the firehose.css file to any of the user pages. Need to verify and then see if we can get the db purged of these values.

Good work. The question in my mind is why the heck css for one module has any effect *at all* on any other module. Talk about lack of localization...-AG

I think there was some firehose slashboxes that showed up in the users pages. They needed to be wider than the default, so they patched those pages with the firehose.css. Next step is to get a current dump of the two css tables. The important part is I know what files are for what parts of the code. Slashcode.css is the theme css file slashcode-lite.css is the style file that is called by a user pref. This means I need to fix comments.css to remove the theme elements I inserted and put them in the theme file. I still need to make sure that the changes that benefited the Simplified theme stay intact. -EP

fonts

This is what I usually start with:
   font-family: Helvetica,Geneva,Arial,Verdana,sans-serif;

Too many can lead to a LOT of testing being required. As can the wrong order. ;-)

Others I have used in the past:
font-family: Geneva,Arial,Verdana,Helvetica,Chicago,sans-serif;
font-family: Helvetica,Arial,Geneva,Chicago,Verdana,sans-serif;
font-family: Helvetica,Geneva,Arial,Verdana,sans-serif;
-AG

I have used:
font-family: Verdana, Geneva, "Bitstream Vera Sans", "DejaVu Sans", sans-serif;

Note this has Linux fonts as well to help with these users.

User Menu

INSERT INTO menus (menu, label, sel_label, value, seclev, showanon, menuorder) VALUES ('users','Logout','logout','/my/logout',1,0,10);
124 INSERT INTO menus (menu, label, sel_label, value, seclev, showanon, menuorder) VALUES ('users','Preferences','preferences','/users.pl?op=edituser',1,0,20);
125 INSERT INTO menus (menu, label, sel_label, value, seclev, showanon, menuorder) VALUES ('users','Password','password','[% constants.real_rootdir %]/my/password',1,0,40);
126 INSERT INTO menus (menu, label, sel_label, value, seclev, showanon, menuorder) VALUES ('users','~[% user.nickname | strip_literal %] ([% user.uid %])','me','/~[% user.nickname | fixparam %]',1,0,50);

This code sets up the upper menu on http://slashcott.org/users.pl which is linked from your userid on the home page. The Preferences is wrong, as it needs to be all three links: Info, Homepage, Comments. This will allow users with low-bandwidth option set to easily get to the setting to unset low-bandwidth. -EP

CSS commit for Feb 23

Changes to most of the css files to set all sizes to em (some were in px and broke flow). Changed the font-family to a more friendly chain for all platforms, and remove all other font-faimily calls from the code. Changed font sizes from % to ems and adjusted size for some of the main elements. Fix a issue with the middle column size caused by firehose.css. Many small fixes to spacing over many places.

Moved all of the slashcode theme items into the slashcode.cssraw file. Some were in comments.cssraw due to some previous work I did.

On article body and comment body, made the font size a bit smaller. Also on comments body set the margins to be smaller.
