Display issues with site scheme

This is the post for people to list off display issues they're still having with the site scheme (including any instances where HTML or CSS you try to use in your entries/comments/profile doesn't behave the way it should).

Do you mean <blockquote>, specifically, or the <q> tag (which you get from a full reply page via the "Quote" button just above the text entry window)?

The <q> tag is not working in Tropo, near as I can tell -- it does work in ?format=light, but in Tropo it does nothing!

You totally fixed this before I could find the place to report it, didn't you? 'Cause now it's wrapping in <blockquote> and it was wrapping in <q> before. I have to get faster on the draw here. ^_^

Oops, I spoke too soon. I get <blockquote> when I am quoting more than one paragraph, and <q> when I am quoting a single paragraph. (I'm guessing that has something to do with line breaks, but why use two different tags at all, and if you're gonna, why style them differently? That seems like it'd make it a lot harder to easily distinguish what's being quoted and what isn't!)

# Any HTML or CSS used on the profile bio is being overruled by the reset CSS in use. See my profile for an example, it should have a green border and the headings should be bigger. The only thing which takes effect is if I use the font tag and change the text colour.

# The default font size for the "edit" link under the userpic on profile page seems really small. I have trouble reading it on both this computer and my work computer. (not that I've been going on Dreamwidth at work or anything... *shifty eyes*)

# The text in the footer seems like it should be padded in from the left and top a bit. The left because it's right up on the edge, and from the top because the text isn't vertically centered, which makes it look strange to me. Of course this one is just my opinion and may not necessarily be a bug :)

# On the update.bml page, the border on the top of the entry box (with the "Rich Text" and "HTML" tabs) are still in the LJ blue colour and not a lovely Dreamwidth red colour :)

# Again on update.bml, the hover over style for the RTE icons is in LJ blue scheme, not DW red.

# Selection highlight colour (by that I mean the colour the message rows turn when you tick the checkboxes) on the Inbox page is LJ blue. This is also the same for the colour when selecting the different message folders (Friends Updates, Birthdays, etc)

# The colours of the boxes on the support page don't really match the site scheme (blue and green). I suspect these are due to be updated anyway, but thought I'd mention.

Link to the text file with the code for the table in my profile:

I'll put the same code into an entry and see what gets stripped there too.

In the entry - borders work, but font size does not.

Font size didn't work in the profile either.

Question - does comment html show up in comment previews? It should, right? I was posting some html comments on styled journals to see how they worked out and some of the code tags didn't show up in the preview. Wondering if that's related, though, because it might be something completely different.

It is. You have to turn off spellcheck on the spellcheck-and-preview page, preview, and then you can see it render accurately. I have no idea why, but I do know it's something you've inherited from LJ, because every clone site has this behavior.

Site scheme on Opera in Mac a bit off: observe. Not a show stopper, but a little undesirable.

I prefer the dt part to be strong and them to be a bit closer together. Buuuut not critical I suppose.

Default site scheme only, or custom comment pages?

Okay, well, we'll save this data for later then, I guess.

* Unordered lists displaying without bullets. (Dunno if that's desirable behaviour elsewhere, but we should have bullets in the FAQ)

* Text in the main entry field of update.bml is too small.

I am also having this update.bml text size issue. I can barely read what I am typing.

Still having problems with the width of the site layout, both in Tropo generally and with the nav strip particularly. I also have patches for those; should I open a bug and add the patches to it for review?

I'm having problems with CSS styled tables showing up on a community profile page:

I'm a total n00b as of today so I might be posting this in the wrong place (feel free to redirect me) but I'm using Safari 1.3.2 (old) and there's a display bug on the red pages when I'm logged out. I can see the top two login boxes for username and password but everything below that is obscured by the grey band where the search box and buttons are (check out my grasp of technical language... not). Comparison with lj suggests the obscured items are the remember me ticky box and the login button. I can click the top of them (which is how I managed to log in) but can't see the words labelling what they are. If you want a screenshot then I'll post one.

My computer claims the 12" screen res is 1024x768. And I've now noticed that the equivalent site standard blue lj pages also display incorrectly when I'm logged out but the login layer displays in front of everything else.

I tend to stay logged in so I probably won't notice any changes you make but feel free to ask me if you ever want testing from an older Mac + software.

Table issues in entries -- border, background color, vertical alignment:

Viewing on Windows Vista Ultimate SP1.

In Firefox, instead of having "normal" borders, it has one-pixel, non-embossed borders. Background color and vertical alignment are completely ignored.

In Chrome and IE8, there are no borders showing whatsoever. Same issue with background color and vertical alignment.

Loading up with ?format=light in all cases causes the tables to display as written!

[personal profile] turlough 2009-04-08 05:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I tried using the same tables in my bio as I'm using on LJ and while the basic shape shape stays as it should all "padding", "background color", and "font size" (but weirdly enough not "font color") tags are completely unheeded. (

When I post the same tables in an entry everything looks exactly like it should EXCEPT that the line height is suddenly doubled or something ( The line height problem disappears when I use ?format=light but instead there's suddenly a strange gap between the upper and lower table.

Sorry, really really new but looking forward to seeing what you have here. I think this has been reported possibly per Bugzilla: but not sure if it's been closed or not? Sorry, never used anything like this and still learning lots. If you are working on it that's fine, disregard this!

When I put my website into my profile it changes what I put in to my LJ. I'm runing Opera 9.62, created my profile before importing my journal.

Thank you, I thought that might be the case but didn't want to make an assumption. I'm looking forward to the 30th. And I don't usually get this excited about a new website, I usually sit back and watch it. But y'all look really into this and like you have your heads screwed on straight ;D Good luck with it all!

After a search, the fifth column of matches is truncated in the middle of their icons / usernames. No horizontal scroll bar appears, so there is no way to see what is lost.

Happens here on Firefox 3 and IE7, even with zooms reset to 100%, albeit in slightly different places (the fifth column in IE is even smaller than in FF).

[personal profile] ian 2009-04-12 01:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Interestingly, if I search for journals in the United Kingdom, it shows this effect. If I then say 'users only', it looks ok: before and after.

Equally interesting, if I go to page two of the combined list and then say 'users only', it tells me there aren't any!? Wrong, but correctly formatted wrong :)

[personal profile] ian 2009-04-12 01:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah, the second example is because 'users only' excludes not just communities but people's OpenID accounts, isn't it?

So it looks like the formatting issue is around having those included in the list of results.

[personal profile] ian 2009-04-13 08:52 am (UTC)(link)
Looking at the source (trying to find something else entirely, but..) I see that cgi-bin/LJ/Directory/ gives each column 20% of the space allocated to the results somewhere else.

So that space isn't enough when OpenID results are included because they can be much longer than user / community names.

[personal profile] ian 2009-04-12 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
When looking at <> the 'previous 20' link appears in the middle of the (long) list of tags.

Doubtless 'next 20' would as well.

A tiny one this - DW's favicon.ico looks very similar to the Debian logo and's favicon.ico (both red spirals although one's clockwise and the other is anticlockwise).

Has anyone considered changing it to be more like the 'd' of the default user icon, i.e. the 'd' of the site's title logo, by adding the vertical stroke?

That would make it 'd for Dreamwidth' rather than 'spiral for, erm, not sure' :)
