Firstly, I like the new forum system! The minimalist style is very nice.
I have posted quite a few new videos on my chemistry channel just now. Three new “Quick definition” videos and three videos of a new style. The new style ones, called “Ymarfer!”, are me going through chemical problems and their (usually mathematical) solutions. I feel that these are quite slow in pace (probably too slow in parts), as I have to concentrate in using the handwriting tablety thing I have and because I want to try to record the whole thing in one take.
@Ifan: I just tried to edit the post with the video links to make it “fit” the width a little better. I used the return button in the middle of the link and then checked preview. The text after the return return to normal (black) text and became disconnected from the link proper (blue text). Any simple way we can tidy up?
I would have quarantined this post, but as I PMd you, it doesn’t hide it, as quarantining a thread does. In any case, people are aware that we are tinkering and it’s hardly a national secret…
Edit- well that’s made me look like a monkey, there’s now nothing wrong with the width. What was occurring was the link had spilled outside the box and looked silly. Unless you’ve been tinkering while I was typing just now? Using iPad, btw.
Regarding quarantining - it absolutely does hide them I just checked by quarantining that very post and having a look as my non-mod test user. Whatever happened to Geraint was some kind of edge case I think. If quarantining straight-up didn’t work, I wouldn’t have released it at all
Gary Stokes: What was occurring was the link had spilled outside the box and looked silly.
Kinetic & Gary, fyi, the same thing is happening for me (on iPad) right now with a link in Dinas’s post in the thread called MUTATION ENQUIRY. (I don’t think I can link directly to that thread or post.)
wondersheep (Kev): just copy the link of the current page from the bar in the browser
Not on Apple products, I think? I’m on iOS7 (iPad / iPhone) – there’s no equivalent to right-click, and the address in the browser window just shows as site.saysomethingin.com, with no additional data denoting a thread, so I don’t see how to make that trick work. Any ideas?
My android tablet has a list of options for a “long click” (holding your finger or a stylus on a link until the list opens): “open link in new tab” “open link in private tab” “copy link” “share link” “bookmark link” and (in this case) “open link in YouTube”.
I can also highlight text with a long click, moving the end markers to where I want, and long click again to copy to the clipboard.
