[12:31:09] <fyngyrz> TMB, you back from kid delivery?
[12:31:38] <fyngyrz> TheMightyBuzzard: you back from kid delivery?
[12:56:34] <fyngyrz> I made a new pull request. I think. Can you see it? I can try again if not.
[13:36:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, not seeing anything.
[13:44:32] <fyngyrz> okay, thought not. More anon
[13:58:36] <fyngyrz> okay, I've tried again. Get it?
[14:03:37] -!- sirecote has quit [Quit: "Hang Up"]
[14:04:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> yep
[14:07:35] <fungus> fyngyrz->
[14:07:35] <fungus> fyngyrz-> ----------------------------------------
[14:07:36] <fungus> fyngyrz-> okay. because it's a template, I can't
[14:07:36] <fungus> fyngyrz-> really test it in a browser, but the
[14:07:37] <fungus> fyngyrz-> INTENT was to create a "link" character
[14:07:37] <fungus> fyngyrz-> next to the headings, which itself is
[14:07:38] <fungus> fyngyrz-> locally linked, so that a simple
[14:07:38] <fungus> fyngyrz-> right-click can copy the entire link.
[14:07:39] <fungus> fyngyrz-> Also fixed a few issues with the new FAQ
[14:07:39] <fungus> fyngyrz-> item.
[14:07:40] <fungus> fyngyrz->
[14:09:08] <fyngyrz> I use the link emoticon thang: 🔗 Hopefully that's okay, as Soylent is emoticon friendly.
[14:09:37] <fyngyrz> Can change, of course. :)
[14:12:58] <fyngyrz> Could it be merged into dev.soylentnews.org so I could take a look at it live without fouling up the main site?
[14:13:10] <fyngyrz> or is that a PITA?
[14:13:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> you have adminy access on dev?
[14:13:43] <fyngyrz> um... I have a link to dev. I was able to post stories. Is that admin?
[14:13:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's going to need to be a html entity for now. something's stripping it back to a ?
[14:13:57] <fyngyrz> oh, ok
[14:14:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> naw. you can edit templates with admin access
[14:14:22] <fyngyrz> oh. THen, no.
[14:14:44] <fyngyrz> I have to fix to HTML entities first anyway, so I'll go do that
[14:14:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> okay, you do now
[14:14:58] <fyngyrz> ok, will look at that shortly after faix
[14:15:03] <fyngyrz> fix, even
[14:15:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> https://dev.soylentnews.org gets you where you need to be
[14:15:22] <exec> └─ 13- Dev.SN User
[14:16:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> test on dev before you commit to your branch
[14:16:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> so we know it works before it goes in a pull request
[14:16:37] <fyngyrz> will try. editing now
[14:18:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> me, i'm working on aging bad karma for ipid/subnetid
[14:20:43] <fyngyrz> fun :)
[14:20:55] <fyngyrz> ok, edit done, lemme see if I can figure out the template editing on dev
[14:22:27] <fyngyrz> okay, so I'm looking at the FAQ page on dev. how do I find the template for it?
[14:23:22] <fyngyrz> config...templates...
[14:24:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> take the middle dropdown box, select faq, hit select page
[14:24:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> take the third one, select faq, hit edit template
[14:25:13] <fyngyrz> yup, I'm in there
[14:25:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> because you're editing faq;faq;default
[14:25:41] <fyngyrz> looks like there are some cacheing issues on my end or soylents
[14:25:55] <fyngyrz> a shift-reload gets me the changes, but using the link gets me the old page
[14:26:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, you're not supposed to paste the __section__ and such in there
[14:26:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> there are text boxes for those
[14:26:43] <fyngyrz> ok, hang on
[14:26:54] <fyngyrz> thought it was the same template that was on github
[14:27:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> it is, it's just displayed differently
[14:28:44] <fyngyrz> so I start with what, the __template__ mark? That's included?
[14:29:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> none of those
[14:29:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> they gotta be stripped from top and bottom both.
[14:29:40] <fyngyrz> so the "<div id="faq">" then?
[14:29:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod
[14:29:50] <fyngyrz> k, sec
[14:30:12] <fyngyrz> howzat?
[14:30:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> template looks good, hit save and see what it looks like.
[14:30:47] <fyngyrz> did
[14:30:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> looks good on the faq
[14:31:22] <fyngyrz> seeing the old one here
[14:32:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> browser cache. hold shift n hit refresh
[14:33:02] <fyngyrz> am, not helping
[14:33:18] <fyngyrz> looking to clear browser cache...
[14:33:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> da hell?
[14:33:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> it looked fine for me once then went back to looking wrong
[14:33:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> hang on
[14:33:54] <fyngyrz> me too
[14:34:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, the html entities got converted to literals again
[14:34:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> bug
[14:35:31] <fyngyrz> perhaps a PNG image until bug is addressed?
[14:35:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> resave em as entities and it should be good. i'll put up a bug about that on the issues board
[14:35:53] <fyngyrz> k, lemme try
[14:36:03] <fyngyrz> jsut "Save Template" again?
[14:36:59] <fyngyrz> yeah, ok, once worked...
[14:37:28] <fyngyrz> looks like it's cooking
[14:37:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> yup
[14:37:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> https://github.com
[14:38:03] <fyngyrz> Do you like this better? It's easier to get the specific link, and I was looking around the web, this seems to be how others do it
[14:38:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> sure. you could just use the word "link" instead but i've no real preference.
[14:38:58] <fyngyrz> also, I could get rid of the underline easily enough
[14:39:33] <fyngyrz> probably should
[14:39:35] <fyngyrz> yes?
[14:39:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> technically yes but that'd require screwing around with the css files and they wouldn't be as easily visible as links.
[14:39:53] <fyngyrz> no, I can do wit w/o messing with the CSS files
[14:40:06] <fyngyrz> if you want
[14:40:27] <fyngyrz> I'll show you. Take a sec
[14:40:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah. the underline imparts information. better to have it and not be as pretty.
[14:40:41] <fyngyrz> okay, fair enough
[14:42:12] <fyngyrz> okay then, I suppose it's good to go, if you like it.
[14:42:21] <fyngyrz> thanks for helping me
[14:42:34] <fyngyrz> I have total-newbness here
[14:42:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> knod knod
[14:42:59] * fyngyrz bobbles
[14:43:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> don't worry if you fucker something up on dev. it's pretty easy to unfucker.
[14:43:26] <fyngyrz> I'll keep that in mind
[14:44:13] -!- sirecote [sirecote!sirecote@cpl.digitalhosting.ca] has joined #dev
[14:45:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> anywho, ping if you need me but barring that i'll be up to my neck in some funky sql
[14:50:06] <fyngyrz> enjoy
[14:50:14] <fyngyrz> I think the pull is good to go
[14:50:24] <fyngyrz> oh...
[14:50:26] <fyngyrz> no...
[14:50:33] <fyngyrz> I have to do the entities
[14:50:39] <fyngyrz> nm
[14:55:30] <fyngyrz> okay, new pull in there, yes?
[15:04:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, still showing literals not entities
[15:04:27] <fyngyrz> it's a new pull - not an edit of the previous pull
[15:04:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh
[15:05:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> looks right, yeah. i'll double check it in a bit and merge it if all's happy.
[15:05:37] <fyngyrz> thank yuh, suh
[15:05:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> gonna kill the other pull
[15:05:43] <fyngyrz> yup
[15:06:08] <fyngyrz> sorry for my stumbles on the learning curve here
[15:06:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> no worries
[15:07:18] <fyngyrz> The clueless is strong with this one
[15:08:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> i find it much easier to do from a local repo but it doesn't really matter to me how you do it as long as the code works.
[15:10:31] <fyngyrz> yep. Well, I might move to that if it turns out I do more. Just trying to keep my source code folders from growing. I have a *lot* of source code, about 45 years worth.
[15:11:04] <fyngyrz> My github is a pristine lawn by comparison
[15:11:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> excellent. figured out the sql i think. mostly at least.
[15:11:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> ha
[15:12:36] <fyngyrz> SQL reminds me of PHP in the sense that it isn't... nice.
[15:13:14] <fyngyrz> I have a couple PD DB wrappers I wrote that I use to keep the SQL from sticking to my hands too much
[15:13:26] <fyngyrz> one for PostgreSQL, and one for sqlite
[15:13:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> i just wear condoms on my fingers
[15:13:46] <fyngyrz> between the two, my needs have been covered.
[15:13:59] <fyngyrz> I can see how you could get there from here
[15:14:32] <fyngyrz> I did one for perl, also, but it's buried inside an older project
[15:14:39] <fyngyrz> that was for PostgreSQL
[15:14:58] <fyngyrz> otherwise, it's just clumsy talking to the DB
[15:15:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh we got wrappers to keep us from screwing the pooch security wise. it's just the "OMFG that's long and complex" that's eating my lunch today
[15:15:34] <fyngyrz> anyway. Glad you got your SQL done or close. More fishing. :)
[15:15:50] <fyngyrz> I hear that
[15:15:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod
[15:16:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> you should see the one pj wrote for watching out for mod bombs. it's downright cthulhu-esque.
[15:16:44] <fyngyrz> ugh
