This thread is for suggesting board stuff, like if you want the submit buttons to be on the correct side, wherever that might have been

[You] can also suggest general things like how large you think avatars should be and what your favourite javascript code is

Code: Select all

function getUserName() {
    return $('#username_logged_in .username').text() || 'Special Week';
}

$('.content').toArray().forEach(function(div) {
    div.innerHTML = div.innerHTML.replace(/\[you\]/g, getUserName()) });

i really really hate that there's a gap in the line to the right of our avatars. It ends where the text ends. Make that stop.

i hate this also, but i can't border right the profile because it is also smaller than the parent container, some of the time. i'm thinking i might just hack this like it's 1999 and make a one pixel border and have that repeat vertically. that would kind of be like the most inelegant solution though so i'm trying to figure out other things / will try other things today like making the div display table and table cell because i guess a table cell expands? but, like, fuck it man. just fuck it. i know how to make the border background thing work. you'll notice that it is currently working for the quotes because i didn't think to just margin negative

that is being moved, but when you tell it to move the board's responsive fucking design kicks in and moves it back as a drop down menu which is even worse

.postprofile class. border-right-X as needed. Change its padding to 30px 5px 5px 4px.

Done.

i will grant you that post profile looks better than the content box most of the time, but it's still not as tall as the containing div when people do stuff like quote posts. i just tried [the border here] yesterday to see and now need it to like actually work

Ok, sure. It's an inline object.

So, also make it inline-block and set its height to 100%.

There are a lot of ways depending on what it is but you usually don't want to do that.

wait, is it actually that easy

for vertical align im gonna try table and table cells. what's got something perfectly vertically aligned on the topic page is line height, but i don't think that's a good idea since topics can sometimes be more than one line

What are you trying to vertically align? Generally the correct way to do this is with fixed sized objects and padding.

That stuff all looks fine, leave it alone. Get the quote button properly aligned instead.

coughing nervously

the template file we're working with had the profiles to the right. i actually kind of like that better, but i was imagining it as something of a hard sell. if you're looking in the console then you might notice a lot of stuff forcing things to be on the left hand side, or borders on the right hand side instead of the left hand side

Alright, here's how you do it.

Take the post CSS and make it a flex box.

Display: flex;
