Hello

I've recently moved her from LJ and I am using Practicality layout on both my journals here (both are paid for).

I would like to have entry navigation links at the top of each entry as well as at the bottom, similar to that found in the Flexible Squares Layout at LJ.

Any assistance would be very welcome. :-)

Could one of you kind souls link me to the page where I can set the style for my reading page and posting page? I set it to Lynx, which I hate, and can't recall now how I did that.

Thanks!

Images auto-resize (RESOLVED)

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. :)

The importer has (mostly) caught up!

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.

Make Subjects into Links?

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!

EDIT---
I would also please like to know how to have "(no subject)" as a Subject if an entry doesn't have one.

EDIT---
The Tags, Current Music, Subject, and such seem to not always be displaying in the same order. On my LiveJournal the order is: Tags, Current Music, Current Location, Security, Subject, Time, Current Mood. And I would like to carry it over to here. I saw in the edited Flexible Squares that they have it set-up as like paragraphs for each of those, but I don't understand how to transfer that to Tabular Indent.

Couple of quick questions (RESOLVED)

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!)

SOLVED, with multiple options. THANK YOU!

I have recently started using my phone to access DW more often, and unsurprisingly I am finding that my styles, which I love and prefer to use on my desktop and laptop, do not play nicely with the tiny phone screen real estate.

Is there a way to keep my usual styles, but view pages when I'm on my phone using a different style, such as Mobility, instead?

[Edit to add] I'm specifically hoping to use an actual style rather than "?style=site" or "?style=light". [end edit]

Thanks for any advice you can give!

Hello, Dreamwidth! Goodness, this past week has been unexpectedly exciting, hasn't it? A warm Dreamwidth welcome to everyone who's just joining us: we're glad you're here, and we hope you're liking the new digs.

Before we get into all the things I have to cover, though: Given the reasons most people are citing for not wanting to agree to LiveJournal's new ToS, I'd like to take a moment and ask: if you're able to (and only if you're able!), please consider donating to the Russian LGBT Network/Российская ЛГБТ-сеть. They not only do excellent work across the Russian Federation, but are currently mobilizing to help evacuate LGBT people in Chechnya who are in danger of detention or death. (EDIT: If you're outside Russia, you can donate through All Out; the Russian LGBT Network website won't accept donations from outside Russia.)

To our friends in Russia who are LGBT and those who are against the mistreatment of anyone because of their sexual orientation: We stand with you. Please stay safe above all else, but if it would be safe for you to post that link, the LGBT Network is asking that as many people as possible publicly share the information that the LGBT Network is ready to help. (They also ask that you do not contact people in Chechnya directly to let them know, as there are reports the authorities are searching people's phones and computers for evidence of sexual orientation.)

The rest of this post is primarily to give y'all new folks a brief orientation (or as brief as I am ever capable of; no one has ever called me concise) to help you settle in, although I hope at least some of it will be useful (or at least interesting!) to those of you who have been with us for a while. Come with me as we discuss Dreamwidth's history, a bit of what (we think) makes us special, the answers to a few common questions about how we roll, and a few useful tips that may help you with the transition.


Dreamwidth 101! )

Whew! That was a lot to throw at y'all at once, I know. (Yes, I always am this longwinded. And I always use this many parentheses.) Everybody who's been here for a while: thank you for your patience as I got our new arrivals up to speed! We'll be back in a few weeks with a code push and a bunch of new features and fixes, so the next news post should be more broadly applicable.

In the meantime, let's have a welcome party in the comments:

* If you're looking for new people to subscribe to you, leave a comment with some basic info about your journal and what you tend to write about! Then everybody can browse around and meet each other. (There's also [community profile] 2017revival and [community profile] addme, both of which are unofficial but bustling lately; holler if you know of any more.)

* If you've been here for a while and have a favorite community that's active, drop a link and a brief description!

* If you're new or you've been here for a while, and you're looking for an active community on a particular topic, leave a comment with what you're looking for and people can recommend you some options. (We've done this a few times before, as "the great community rec-o-matic", and it's never a bad time for another round.)

* If you know of any scripts, resources, extensions, tools, or toys that will help someone make the move, get settled in, or customize their DW experience once they're here, drop a link and a description in the comments. (We can't be responsible for unofficial tools, scripts, extensions, etc, so use at your own risk, but I know there are a bunch of them floating around!)

Finally, a quick note on the importer queue: it's still going, I swear. The jobs finishing now are the ones that were scheduled around 48 hours ago, though, so we really appreciate how patient y'all are being!

As always, if you're having problems with Dreamwidth, Support can help you; for notices of site problems and downtime, check [site community profile] dw_maintenance and the Twitter status account. (We can't do support through Twitter, though! Open a support request instead. Me trying to fit into 140 characters is not a pretty sight.)

Comment notifications may be delayed for an hour or two, due to the high volume of notifications generated after an update is posted to [site community profile] dw_news. This was posted at 5:30AM EDT (see in your time zone). Please don't worry about delayed notifications until at least two hours after that.

Header title

I apologize. I know this has been covered here before but I've tried a few things (and looked through the help guide) and I'm not making any progress.

I'd like to remove the header image text/subtext.

This is my theme:

 photo hollyoyheader_zps1dy9dqig.png

I'm thinking it's possible the commands I'm trying to implement into the CSS just aren't going in the right place. I used to be much more fluent in CSS than I am presently and I'm giving myself a headache trying to figure this out.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
This has been solved. Thank you!

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams that tie two hearts that will never die
And near the flames
The shadows play in the shape of the man’s desire

This desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of hidden hearts and souls
This desert flower
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love
