Re: Weekly Round-ups


I'll look into the CSS on Thursday, and see if there is anything I can do to make the page look more snazzy, seeing as the page is just words in a blue box.

Re: Weekly Round-ups


Well yeah, but I don't want anything too insane or it'll detract from the ability to quickly read the review.

But to be fair, I do wish the box could be sized so that it didn't stretch so far down the page, past the end of the review.

Hey Daaaaaan, come heeeere!

Re: Weekly Round-ups


I'm thinking of using the style that's on the Keshi Heads webpage. Maybe a drop-down list where you can view previous roundups. Sizing the box is easy, and we can always leave the box to be a fixed size such that it has a scroll bar.

Perhaps organise/organize the words in the roundup and overall make it shorter, because it can get boring to read. Highlights of the roundup (such as when we found out that TCT was going to air in the UK) can have links to prove that it is true.

We could even include a public poll on whether people think Ross should take over the commentary. It would be simple - just ask them yes or no, then put a reason. Well, I just started on PHP, so it might not work out. Not to mention, if it's not properly secured, hackers can cause problems. Lastly, at the next roundup, do not acknowledge me for changing the page style to look more professional.

Re: Weekly Round-ups


Links don't work from that page because of the way it's embedded. There's no way to keep the old roundups either. It's only a small thing to fill the gap!

Re: Weekly Round-ups


Yep, I looked at it - it's embedded using a Google document. If it were saved as an element such as text, it would be easy to put something there using a CSS float property. Maybe create a few more Google documents and embed those as well. We can use CSS again with a little JavaScript and buttons to show only one at a time, but also allowing us to switch between the weekly roundups.

I was thinking of placing an image with a link back to the fansite, but it isn't possible to use a float property, since an embedded Google document doesn't interact with the code very well. However, if you want to make the roundup box shorter, set the box's height to a shorter value, and allow scrolling to see the rest of it.

Otherwise, we can use a simple PHP code to save the input and load it onto the page, but that would be without security in mind. We could also have Brian sending the roundup text to Dan weekly, then Dan can just paste the text in the right place in the code. Unless we change the way the page works, I can't do much to the page. We should consider these other options.

It's done that way so Messup can update it himself. I don't always have the time, which is why I handed the section to him. If he had to send me the text to upload then I might not get to do that for a day or two.

If you know of a better way to do this then let us know!

Yep it's filler more than anything else.

Still I enjoy writing them and I do save them if I need to look back at one for whatever reason emoticon

Re: Weekly Round-ups


Glad you’re still liking writing them.

The only thing is, they’re getting too long and not all fitting in the box! Gotta shorten them emoticon Just include the most important stuff, not eeeeverything that’s happened on the forum. Even if it’s only a couple of paragraphs it’s fine. No need for a full on blog each week emoticon
