done  ... and yes IE is getting pretty slow  ... err  .. i suppose we could adapt by choosing the more popular emotlets and wait till we get a popup pallet ... or just tell people to use FF ... or maybe get the some help and time to work on nifty pop up javascripts that always take a long time to get to work in all browsers
incidentally i am seriously considering lopping style and font and prolly justify ... do we really need these ?

clicking on the related tags is now, me thinks, a great way to forage  ... u should try it more often
incidentally i think the Google spell checker is super  it seems to yield more pertinant choices than most checkers i have used

How does the style work? The font you are using now works fine I dont see a need to keep changing the font. I do like the italic,bold and color choice

Mark de LA says
My solution to the slow loading is FF.  Under IE I can't point at an icon or picture and capture the URL, under FF I can. I would probly if I lost most of the emotlets especially the which are my favorites.

Mark de LA says
Style I don't use much unless I want to SHOUT at the .  I like the font and color etc. The one with justification so that the text looks like a book doesn't seem to work for me.

might be easier to lop it than expain it.  And i totally agree ... we don't need no stinking fonts.  this might be a case where more choices just goofs up the overall simplicity and but we will definitely keep
  • hyperlink
  • media from the web
  • upload
  • quote
  • bold
  • itilic
  • center
  • left justify

  • (right justify is questionable)
  • horizontal bar (do we need this?)

  • numbered list
  • bullets
  • indent
  • outdent
  • type coloring
  • tabels

I wonder if my horizontal bars will come out ?


Seth says
nope, there is a but in horizontal bars, at least in IE

Mark de LA says
Test of the book style justification:
From the Declaration of Independence:
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America. When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Mark de LA says
Well the above book justification worked in the RTE but not when it came back!

i vote we lop it rather than fix it.

... I like the fonts. There is a lot of stuff I like to emphasize sometimes, particularly in political discussions! In addition coloring is more brilliant on some fonts than others. Why lose it, it is working fine?

i think you misunderstoon.  i listed the things that i propose to keep.  Most of them !

now let me make the list of the things i propose to eliminate
  • everything under the drow down box that shows as [style]
  • everything under the drow down box that shows as [font]
  • right justify (this is really questionable, if somebody wants it i would keep it)
  • book justify (nobody uses this and it has problems)
  • horizontal rule _____ (this also does not work)

DOWN WITH THE          Well Winnie wishes she could write this below the Quote box.  but I do see Marks point

about the changes in font

now that she sees how he is using it. .



Seth says
Winnie, use the down arrow to move the cursor out of the box.

Winnie says
well it would not have been so big if it was written outside the box would it?

Winnie says
seth 2005-10-21 14:34:20 1625
Winnie, use the down arrow to move the cursor out of the box.   sorry I dont see your down arrow!


Mark de LA says

Ok ... maybe sombody can suggest some differnt fonts .. ones there don't do it for me

Mark de LA says
The most often one I use is verdana because it colors nicely in bold . Ariel is too close to what it is on this side. I agree that the other two are boring. Some of the fonts are not available on Linux. Tina has thousands, but how to exchange them is something else. Doesn't your other Blog have a bunch ?

Mark de LA says
Incidently on Linux the fonts show up differently for FF.

Mark de LA says
I think the challenge with fonts is that you get what is the font must be on the machine you are using or the default happens.

Horizontal bars should be removed if they do not work in the RTE which they don’t
nathan@fbi 2015-12-29 18:55:33 [item 1625#39817]
I think you mean horizontal scroll bars, but I am on a Mac and we don’t have scroll bars. I think there is a setting in the RTE for that. I will check into it when I have a windows machine around. Right now everyone here uses Macs.  
choy 2015-12-29 19:03:58 [item 1625#39818]
Nope! I was talking about this guy  the one between the picture icon and the Omega in the RTE.
Works fine. I have put <hr>’s in several of my posts. Maybe your monitor doesn’t show them either?

Right between these two lines.  
choy 2015-12-29 19:16:18 [item 1625#39823]
none shows up here – is it a ¼ pixel thick.  I see it with the grey background as extremely fine.  It looks like the thickness should be adjustable given the icon, but I don’t see how.
when I edit it is black on white in the grey post it is white on grey

nathan@fbi 2015-12-29 19:19:52 [item 1625#39825]
The css for the <hr> comes with Bootstrap and is set in concert with all the styles. It looks very good here. I don’t think it is wise to fiddle with the carefully designed styles that came with the Bootstrap package just to accommodate out of date monitors. There must be many modern sites you don’t see the subtitles of … just add this one to the list as long as you have that monitor.  
choy 2015-12-29 19:29:34 [item 1625#39827]
It is not an out of date monitor. Feature is pretty worthless to me here.
Maybe you are using the wrong color profile for that monitor. Even windows has color profiles for monitors. Sounds like yours is set for a different monitor type.

i see the one nathan put in fine, but not the one mark said he put in.

i have a need for a horizontal line that would force new pictures below it … that way i can control the vertical space of my picture presentation on a page.   in fbi-1.0 i would just put in a whole bunch of separators like this ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

then i could compose beneath that line and know that my pictures would not right justify and look messy pretty much regardless of the screen width.

unfortunately <hr> does not do that now in fbi-2.0 …. is there any way to make it do that?
nathan@fbi 2015-12-29 19:43:14 [item 1625#39833]
Actually that might be okay. What you are talking about is called a clearfix. It’s what makes floated images stay above something else. I don’t see a problem with putting a clearfix on <hr>’s since they are intended to be block elements.

The <hr> does disappear here on the root comment background color, because they are the same color. But that’s our fault, not the <hr>’s

Seth, is that an underline _______________________ (must be) . When I do a journal I like to separate days & organize it based on other things so it may not be linear. I use a separator mostly ~~~~~~~~~~~~ I just thought it might be nice, but evey time I have tried in fbi1 & fbi2 it is invisible or so small that I go back to underlines or ~~~~~~
it’s underline ...frequently i use periods too…..   but i sure would prefer a <hr> that clearfixes instead.

Seth requested no underlines here, except on the “inserted text” style, which is a semantic style based on the <ins> tag. He says underlines should only be for hyperlinks. You guys duke that out.  
choy 2015-12-29 19:53:01 [item 1625#39839]
No need to duke, dude the underline is that character on the keyboard which is above the hyphen – on my keyboard it is the key between zero and +/= smug
nathan@fbi 2015-12-29 19:54:40 [item 1625#39840]
That’s not an underline, that is an underscore. You can’t put it under another letter right? Then it ain’t no underline bro!  
yeah people misunderstood … big deal
