stet/keith question or whoever is in charge of code these days

1) is it at all possible to make vimeo links embed like youtube does?

2) would it be possble to make youtube embeds be in 16:9 instead of 4:3?

youtube embeds are the raddest and i think its awesome they work so easy but these are just 2 suggestions to make them better

if its possible to do these 2 things w/o days and days of coding i think it would be cool!

thanks!

I'm not stet, Keith or in charge of code, but I can say that SBs are registering as they always have.

hmmm, no, it's supposed to go back to the thread with the post that you SB'd. Hopefully stet will see this tomorrow morning UK time.

usually happens when you are banned from a subforum iirc, and no the SB doesn't register

yo whatever update you guys just did about 10 minutes ago... when i click "bookmark" on a post it jumps me back to the top of the page now... anyway to change it back?

⚓ (gr8080), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 21:56 (six years ago) Permalink

From looking at the logs, most ppl click "Bookmark" then choose another of their bookmarks to read. So the thinking here is that it jumps you back to your bookmarks to save you scrolling or w/e.

It's taking a bit of getting used to, I admit. Can we give it a couple of days?

Saves a helluvalot of pressing on page up/home to go to the next bookmarked thread!

future debts collector (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 22:01 (six years ago) Permalink

haha ok.

i was totally unaware until you changed it, but i guess my pattern is get to last post/post i want to stop on -> click bookmark -> read last post -> click permalink (so last post is now at top of page) -> pick from remaining bookmarks

so i guess you're saving me some clicks, i just need to re-train myself

From SNA, I open a bookmarked thread in a new tab, click 'Bookmark' in that thread, then open a new bookmarked thread from my SNA tab. So I do what the logs indicate, but not in the way it looks in the logs.

Ha, this is brilliant, and 2 hours ago would've saved me the trouble of looking up how to do Page Up/Home on a MacBook Pro (not before I accidentally managed to shut it down by pressing some combo of Apple key and what looked like it might be a Page Up button).

Thanks!

Les Tressle (useless chamber), Tuesday, 31 January 2012 22:12 (six years ago) Permalink

I don't like it, personally. But I do *tend* to read the last post before clicking the button, so I guess I can live with it if I have to. I usually click to SNA rather than other bookmarks.

yeah not feeling it.

another thing: if i bookmark something and then select that same bookmark once it jumps to the top of the page (like say i walked away from my computer for a while), it will take me to the OLD bookmark from that page

mostly i just dont like jumping back to the top of the page in general

Here's a bug:

When you follow the link in this message to the other thread:

rolling twee/indiepop 2k18: sweaters never go out of style

...that thread will load from "ilxor.com" not "www.ilxor.com" which will mean user cookies won't load and login won't work.

Somehow, the redirect to 'www.ilxor.com' didn't happen.

fajita seas, Monday, 29 January 2018 03:11 (seven months ago) Permalink

Yeah, that's a known thing -- it just means the person who posted the link is on ilxor.com -- we don't try to redirect those (though probably should tbh)

this has probably been asked 000's of times but...

what order are my bookmarks in? it seems so random.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Friday, 27 April 2018 22:45 (four months ago) Permalink

I'm afraid it was over ten years ago I did it and I can't remember. My immediate reaction was that it would be coming out just exactly as it's stored in the database, but that's ordered by message board and then by the thread ID (just in order of the thread age), but they're not showing like that, so not sure. I could go back and look at the code, but if it's okay with you C, I can't be arsed at the moment.

UPDATE: I have just been arsed, and it gets the stuff from the database, which would be ordered by message board, but it then sticks them in to a hash table, which means that it's pretty much indeterminate what order they will be read out from.

Keith, Monday, 30 April 2018 22:19 (four months ago) Permalink

If I'd stuck them in a list, rather than a hash table, then they would have come out in the same order as the database. It's that it is a hash table that makes it pretty much random. Can't remember why I did it that way, but there was most likely a reason, just lost in the mists of time and I really can't be arsed going and figured out why.

Keith, Monday, 30 April 2018 22:23 (four months ago) Permalink

mh, Tuesday, 1 May 2018 01:22 (four months ago) Permalink

Yes, a LinkedHashMap would have done it, I guess, if I'd thought about ordering at all at the time, although I would also have had to beam eight years forward in time to bring it back to 2006 when I wrote it.
