Two bugs found

Hellkeepa (January 13th, 2003, 12:04 pm)


Just noticed a little bug in the thread "About Page", where Semirrahge has added the edit: When I use the ANSI scheme the text goes beyond the limit in Opera (6.04), and it doesn't look quite good.

The other bug is the links: All links lead to the current window, which means taht the "Related", "Cool", and other user-submitted links will cause the visitors to leave TSFE. Which is not good, and highly confusing!

Anyone up to fixing them? ;-)

Happy fraggin'!

Oh yeah, the links

I was just going to mention that... (Then why didn't I? Stupid forgetful bugger.) That's easy to fix.

I don't see the other thing though, 'cause I use IE. But just for my knowledge, what text goes beyond what limit?

The italics

Hellkeepa (January 15th, 2003, 11:47 pm)


The italic text is too wide in comparison to what the normal text is, which makes it go beyond the limits of what's "expected". You really should download Opera 6.05, only (no, especially) if it's for using it to develop CSS / sites!

Just to make my point stand out better. ;-

Happy fraggin'!

In about seven minutes, I'll see what's wrong. ;)

I see the italic text is indeed very wide. But it doesn't go off the limits, it just wraps around, at least in Opera 7.0... It appears more a problem with either the font itself or Opera 6's font renderer.

Either way, I can't do anything about it, except make a copy of the ANSI scheme in Courier New instead of fixedsys for Opera users. And Courier New looks way too ugly for me to do that. =p

I think so as well (a bug in 6.05), but you have to remember that Opera 7.0 is beta after all, so 6.05 is recommended for general use and web-development. ;-)

You could always try to hack it a bit, perhaps by lowering the wordspacing a bit or any other neat trick I can't think of at the moment. :-D

It's quite disturbing to see "CSS" on the middle of the border, or should I say seeing the border go right through the middle of "CSS", in my post there. :-/

Oh, yeah. almost forgot this one:

Cruise: You need to fix the index-page of the sub-folders, it is not wise to let everybody and their browse the directories like they can now!

Found out by accident, don't ask me to replicate though, because I had no idea how I did it. However, I can browse the directory without replicate it, as a simple twURLing does that just fine..

Happy fraggin'!

Well, all right

Narainsbrain (January 19th, 2003, 5:58 am)

I'll see what I can do. As soon as I finish downloading Opera 6.05, which I'm in the process of doing right now. Maybe I'll reiterate the default word-spacing, and this time Opera will listen. =)

And while we're reminding Cruise of things to fix, there's a typo in the user settings on thread order: it says "Newset first". Semi mentioned this once before, except he did it in an Edit postscript, which inevitable no one saw. =p So Semi, if you're going to report a bug, do it where people will see it!

I did.

Semirrahge (January 20th, 2003, 5:23 am)

Several times. Cruise merely said that he did that a lot. End of discussion.

So there. :)


cruise (January 20th, 2003, 11:14 am)

Did I mention I'm also damn forgetful?

Spelling corrected, and turned directory listing off.


Narainsbrain (January 20th, 2003, 11:49 am)

Oh, you two sillies. =p
