The whole style and font-size trick is gutted but everything else seems to be working o.o

Inline css is half the fun of coding. :c

Maybe when they bring it back we won’t have to add font-size to the start of everything xD

HELP!! My coding suddenly didn’t worked anymore!! :scream:

Since the start of the forum, we always use this coding for our official posts:

<span style="font-size:18px;">

And suddenly it just… didn’t worked anymore. There’s no mistyping on me, because I can copy them from every post with the same coding. What’s weird is that any of the old post remain the same, but it didn’t worked on new post anymore. What’s even more weird, is that if I tried to edit an old post that contained this coding, the coding will cease to function.

Looks like it’s only temporary. Phew.

I didn’t say that. I don’t know anything about what Discourse has done or is planning on doing. They do things and we find out when we see the change.

Made it sound like they temp disabled it whilst they were patching a security flaw.

Was the above just speculation then?

Same here. I was having fun . .

It’s possible the patch will be removed and something else will take it’s place, but I don’t know that for sure and I don’t know if that will bring back the ability to code.

I didn’t speculate about the security patch, we got that info from Discourse. But for the most part, they don’t tell us anything prior to any changes they make to the forums. We notice them the same time all of you do.

Since all the old coding methods don’t work except bbcode it seems like, which I don’t know much of because I practiced html. I’ve been playing around with what can and it really isn’t much.

So, my question is- does anyone know how to do pure img threads? I’m creating one right now but I’m having difficulties with figuring out how to layer an image over another image to make it a clickable link image. I don’t want the whole img thread to be clickable just one specific piece of it like you could do with html (but html doesn’t work :0 and I know for specific designs it’s a combo of img and html)

since html doesn’t work you’ll have issue with that. you can’t layer an image over another image.

You make the image thread in an image editor (such as Pixlr or Photoshop), then you cut it up into smaller images and upload them here. To create links, you put an image inside a link code e.g. <a href="linkgoeshere.com"><img src="imagelink.jpg"></a>

If you order the image links from top-to-bottom, left-to-right, then the pure image thread should line itself up.

Pure img threads- success! I’ve been testing over the week and it works well, but putting it into effect, where links are actually being clicked, it has those pesky little numbers of how many times the link has been clicked next to it and throwing off the formatting.

Any way to fix this?

quick note: i didn’t see the date for all the “coding’s dead” posts. and i now realise that this all was a month ago, haha. i’m just back from not being active on here for like 6 months.

hello guys, gals, and non-binary pals. so is like css/html on here dead? i’ve tried copying and pasting some of my old threads that used < span=“font-size:10px;display:block;background-color:white;” > or whatever onto the html playground and it just came up white. i’ve been testing out substitutes for html&css bbcode & markdown, and honestly they’re just confusing me. i’ve also been trying to apply some spans in there, and imma show you what i found. c:



okay so: i can’t figure out to make this highlight into more a background color, and to apply padding.
i’ve tried using code like the following:

[font="georgia"] [size="2"] <span style="background-color:#ffeec9; padding:30px;"> heeyaw [/size] [/font] </span>
which results like this
another thing that i’ve found that doesn’t work, is using two separate spans. also i believe the whole display:block thing for html isn’t working.
[font="georgia"] [size="2"] <span style="background-color:black"><span style="font-color:white"> hihihihi [/size] [/font] </span>
this is what it turns out like…
hihihihi
some other things i’ve found, that small things like < s > or < br > work. code & result below
[font="monospace] [size="1"] doo dee dah just living my life. <s>yeehaw</s> i want to make a <br>line<br> break. [/size] [/font]
doo dee dah just living my life. yeehaw i want to make a
line
break.

That’s trippy how only the background color can change.

[color=white]<span style="background-color:red">That's trippy how only the background color can change.</span>[/color]

it’s really weird that you have to like combine bbcode and markdown and css. because i used to be able to get away with only doing html/css. like the whole [font=“dhguisahiuhgi”] then doing [ /font] in order to get a result is really weird.
