Code Push Window

The code push scheduled for today will be starting shortly. There is little-to-no expected downtime. The patches being pushed this time around are on this code tour.

A note: any users who have enabled journal-styled icon pages will have that feature turned off as a result of one of the bug fixes. You can turn it back on right away, though! It's under Journal Icons Style on the Display tab in Settings.

-Kat

EDIT: All done! Report any bugs/errors/problems/squids in comments, please. Thanks!

EDIT: Some folks who are using certain Dreamwidth-native styles may have some odd display issues with the custom-styled icon pages. It's a bug! A fix is in the works, and will be live as soon as it's been tested. Should be fixed now! Comment if you continue to have trouble.

The page where you can view all your icons (or someone else's) -- like, yours is http://meicdon13.dreamwidth.org/icons -- was previously only available in the site skin. We've been working for a while to make it possible to set it to your journal style, since a lot of people view their icons as part of their journal rather than as part of the information about their account and wanted to have it display the same way as the rest of their journal.

You can turn it on by going to http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/?cat=display and checking the new setting labelled "Journal Icons Style" (checking the box means your own icon page will show in your journal style to anybody viewing it who hasn't chosen a different view), or picking a setting for "Icons View Style" that will control how you view other people's icon pages.

I turned on the Journal Icons Style feature and it doesn't seem to be working. Does it only work with native DW layouts? I'm using an imported custom style.
denise: Image: Me, facing away from camera, on top of the Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome (Default)

[staff profile] denise 2013-01-08 06:52 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, it will only work with a DW-native layout, or a custom layout that has been written to be aware of the /icons page. If you want it to work with a custom layout, you'll need to edit the custom layout to include code for the icon page. (I think someone was planning on writing a basic overview on how to do that for [site community profile] dw_styles, but I'm not sure.)

I don't often use the random journal button on the homepage, just every now and then when I'm bored. Today was one of those days and I've discovered that it wont take you to a random journal, just takes you back to the homepage (ie dreamwith.org in the address bar). Same with random communities. I don't know if this is your just-done code push or not, but it's not working.

I think I remember somebody else mentioning that not working a few days ago and it didn't quite register with me at the time -- that probably means the script that populates the random-user dataset isn't running properly. I'll pass that along; thank you!

Hi,
Found some strange.
Crosspost links (to LJ, for example) are missed/not displayed everywhere. It is missed even in old records (not only in new ones). Also i don't see any crosspost links on my "reading page" in friend's posts (were often early).
Is it something with my settings, or?
denise: Image: Me, facing away from camera, on top of the Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome (Default)

[staff profile] denise 2013-01-08 01:42 pm (UTC)(link)
It looks like you might have turned off display of crosspost links? To check: go to http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/settings/?cat=othersites and make sure the box under "Display Crosspost Link" is checked.

If it is checked, but the links still aren't showing on entries you've crossposted, open a support request, including links to a few (3-5) entries that you crossposted, along with the link to the entry on LJ.

If it isn't checked: click the link labeled "Details". On the page that comes up next, check the box marked "Display Cross Post Links" and hit the button named "Update".

Ohhhhkay, icon page styling. I thought I was going to never ever use that, because I'm the GIVE ME SITE SKINS OR GIVE ME DEATH CAKE kind of person, but I tested it out last night, and it's pretty damned awesome. That just might end up being the one page (other than a person's journal itself) where I'll allow the site to show me other styles. Because it's cool.

So many kudos to the DW Dream Team for things like this, seriously. All the little fun bits that you implement, all the joy, and all the clear, quick explanations for when there can't be fun and joy. THUMBS UP.

I did some experimenting with the new icon page styling and discovered something I think might be a bug. When using light format there's a strange gap between Keywords: and the actual keyword(s) that is not there when you use site scheme. Compare this (light format) and this (site scheme).
denise: Image: Me, facing away from camera, on top of the Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome (Default)

[staff profile] denise 2013-01-08 04:03 pm (UTC)(link)
I think that has to do with light mode being really really fucking old -- like, the HTML that creates it is really awful. It's probably picking up some unintentional CSS styling. It's really minor, though, so I'm not too fussed about it.

(I should open a bug to create a light-mode scheme with markup that was actually written in this century, though.)

Help?

[personal profile] ruriair 2013-01-09 02:38 am (UTC)(link)


Hopefully this doesn't read as gibberish. Above is how I was able to line everything up into three columns, but adjusting the width of the .icon-container or .icon, as well as margins and padding of anything should get it down to two columns if you end up with three at first. You have much more text with your icons than I do, so .icon might need have a greater width than 245px in order to not squish your text so much that it pushes the text above the actual icons.

You might not even need all of the code, just .icon {display: inline-table!important;}, So try that first by itself in your Custom CSS page.

Awesome update. Just one thing, though: it seems that my icons page has gone a bit funny compared to the rest of my journal. The page doesn't have the white column/background/box thing that each of my journal entries have. That, and there are these weird bullet points that don't seem to be appearing on anyone else's journal. It's formatted differently and is in only one column. It sucks a lot, since I was pretty excited for this new update.
ruriair: (Һɑɲyʯʯ : dolled up)

[personal profile] ruriair 2013-01-09 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Did you uncheck the box on the Custom CSS page that says "Use Layout's Stylesheet"? Probably, in order to get the rest of your custom theme to work right. (I know because that's exactly how it appeared to me at first before I went overboard with styling it all last night.)

What you are looking at on your icons page now is raw, unstyled code. Everything is displaying as unordered lists as opposed to "inline" or "block". Whoever designed your custom theme didn't make any CSS for the icons page since we couldn't style it previously.

The code I put here should fix the unordered list issue and line up everything neatly, but as said, you might need to adjust margins, padding, and width of everything to fit your theme; and there's no CSS there for customizing the font of anything so you'd have to do that yourself.

I will probably end up typing up a guide of all the specific stuff available for customizing on the icons page...

OK so I wrote a thing for anyone wanting to try customizing their icons page or fixing stuff that is wonky.

I'm terrible at explanations and will probably be editing it extensively over time, but I hope it gives people a general idea of how things work if they're like me and have compulsive urges to hit stuff until it works style ALL the things.
