Another quick Ultra-MGoBoard update

Submitted by BlockM on February 26th, 2011 at 3:52 PM

A couple quick/helpful updates today:

  • Automatic image resizing works again, and now works for images within the actual posts, in addition to images in the comments.
  • You can now hide a user's posts simply by clicking on a handy "hide user" button right under a user's name within a post. Clicking the link will ask you to confirm whether you want to hide this user. If you say yes, their posts will automatically be collapsed or hidden, depending on your settings. These changes can be removed from the options page.

It doesn't look like thread preview is going to be possible without some back-end support for it, so that's a bummer, but maybe Brian will put that in place at some point.

One of the reasons I come here is to be exposed to ideas and facts that I'm unfamiliar with and opinions I don't instinctively share, even if they're expressed by people who irritate the hell out of me. Sometimes you can learn quite a bit from people who are different. It's one of the reasons attending a large state educational institution can be valuable, as opposed to attending a tiny private college whose entire enrollment is smaller than West Quad and very homogenous. I'd rather have the return of negs that actually mean something.

I don't mean to hijack the thread, but....

On the last thread there was something about using Stylish to widen the site to take up my whole screen, but after installing Stylish (on Chrome) I wasn't able to figure out how to do it. Can someone explain it to me? I'm usually pretty good with figuring out how to navigate preference windows, but I don't know how to use Stylish, and their support pages are less than helpful. 

Thanks.

Once you install Stylish you should have the Stylish Logo up towards the right hand corner of your browser.  It's an "S" in a Box.  

1.  Right click on the S and select "Options"

2.  Click "Add New Style" on the left side of the Stylish options screen.

3.  There should be a box on the left to name the Style (I named mine MGoBlog), click the "enabled" box.

4.  Copy and Paste the code into the Code Box.  You can use the one in this thread: http://mgoblog.com/diaries/mgoblog-stylish-theme-widescreen-folks or tweak it to as you please, I use this: 

 

#banner, #container, #headercontainer, #header-region-container, #footer-region-container, #suckerfish-container {
width: 1300px !important ;}
 
#page-right, #round-right {width: 1299px !important;}
#page-left, #round-right {width:1299px !important;}
#sidebar-left {width 380px !important;}
 
#sidebar-right {width: 210px !important;}
#sidebar-outside {width: 0px !important;}
#inside-content { width: 1299px !important; } body { font-family : Liberation Sans, sans-serif !important; font-size : 16px !important; } .indented{ margin-left:50px !important; } .title{ font-family : Georgia, serif !important; font-size : 20px !important; } 
 
#mainContent {width: 900px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;
padding-right: 0px !important;}
#round-container {width: 1300px !important;}

5.  Next you'll want to set the "Style" to apply to MGoBlog - Set the first box to "URL's Starting With" "http://mgoblog.com"

6.  Hit the save button on the left hand side of the Stylish options.

7.  Either Refresh MGoBlog or Fire it up another tab and you should see a red box with a #1 on the Stylish Icon in the corner of the browser indicating that the script is running.

8.  Hopefully this helps, I don't know the best way to explain it through text.
