DALEK!


The formatting for all of my Blue Sun items is messes up when viewed on the new site. This just started. They look fine when viewed on the old site.

Also it would still be nice to be able to edit fanfics on the new site.

Thanks.

TWO

The Joss Whedon script for Serenity, where Wash lives, is Serenity-190pages.pdf at www.mediafire.com/folder/1uwh75oa407q8/Firefly


Another format problem to fix is that Pictures in the new site are expanded to fit the space available.
A 120px × 120px gif scaled to 889px × 889px does not look right.
Small pictures get very grainy when over-sized.

Comparing the new site versus the old will show what I mean:

The Joss Whedon script for "Serenity," where Wash lives, is
Serenity-190pages.pdf at www.mediafire.com/two

Likes to mess with stuffs.


I apologize for the problems. I'm working on it. At least the use of a href link have been resolved. I'm currently working on other formatting issues. There's also a problem with the way the new site saves data to the database that is causing problem with fanfics that contain Chinese characters. Working on that also. The new site does support edit of fanfics. Will look into why that isn't coming up.

Seems like I have a lot to do. Will get back to you as I resolve the issues.

Okay, I found a quick and dirty way to fix the formatting problems. If you copy a fan fiction from it's old site page, not the edit page, and then paste that in the edit block on the new site the formatting comes back.

I hope that makes sense.

You can still see fanfics on the old site but you have to click on them from the authors pages, not the old Blue Sun room.

I do not fear God, I fear the ignorance of man.

Clever work around. I wonder if it will remain intact when Haken makes his fixes though, at that point it may want you to use the actual formatting code for it to work.
