HAIF - Houston's original social media

Software update - October 16, 2020


Recommended Posts

I like the new feature where it shows gaps between posts like "2 weeks later" or "1 month later", and the "new posts" line is more visible too.

 

My only complaint is the topic listings are too narrow so most thread titles wrap onto multiple lines.  Thankfully I was able to create a Greasemonkey script to resolve this, by widening the thread listing.  What I did in my Greasemonkey script was put in a addGlobalStyle method (search Google for an example you can copy and paste) and then call it with this, adding 300 pixels to the default 1340 pixel width:

 

addGlobalStyle(':root { --container--width: 1640px !important; }');

 

Basically it goes from this:

To this:

Full script looks like this:

 

// ==UserScript==
// @name     HAIF widen
// @version  1
// @grant    none
// @match *://www.houstonarchitecture.com/*
// ==/UserScript==
function addGlobalStyle(css) {
    var head, style;
    head = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0];
    if (!head) { return; }
    style = document.createElement('style');
    style.type = 'text/css';
    style.innerHTML = css;
    head.appendChild(style);
}

addGlobalStyle(':root { --container--width: 1640px !important; }');

In the post body, on the lower right side, you will see a "Other Media" drop down menu. This prompts you to insert image from URL.

 

At this time, you cannot type out the image code? You will have to select the drop down menu every time you want to add an image.

Where's this?

It looks good. I'm glad you guys continue to invest in this site.

 

Will BBCode being eliminated break older posts? Not that it bothers me, I'm just curious.

 

I think the old BBCodes were converted to the new message format.  At least when I did the software upgrade, it spent about 30 minutes churning through all of the old messages.

Oh wow, 1640px!  You've got way better kit than I do.  I'm still rocking a 2011 MacBook Air with a 1366x768 screen.
