[23:04:15] <Kuro> Hey TMB hope constructions going well/almost done. Saw your message regarding the documentation and commiting to the master branch. Just wanted to pop in and say thanks and still looking forward to getting my own install up and running. Cheers!
[23:34:51] -!- mrpg [mrpg!~c9d0c822@Soylent/Staff/Editor/mrpg] has joined #dev
[23:35:51] <mrpg> Hello, in the dept line I wrote <noscript> and I borked the site.
[23:36:03] <mrpg> assigned to: bytram :)
[23:37:06] <Bytram> OMG! ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!
[23:38:17] <Bytram> site is okay... oh, wait. It *used* to be that only the admin tools required JS, but after the comments display rework, is now required in order to handle nested comment display.
[23:38:25] <Bytram> mrpg++ Excellent find!
[23:38:25] <Bender> karma - mrpg: 1
[23:39:18] * Bytram fetches his dinner
[23:42:09] <chromas> mrpg: you can use xml entities
[23:42:16] <chromas> &lt;noscript&gt;
[23:42:38] <chromas> They'll change every time you preview though
[23:42:44] <mrpg> :-(
[23:42:47] <Bytram> yes, but he raises a good point; rehash should automagically do that, anyway
[23:43:39] <chromas> It also does that with emojis and stuff. it works in preview but upon saving, it changes to "?". Not even the appropriate unicode character �
[23:43:54] <Bytram> we handle a bunch of html elements in the story title field; need to use same kind of pre-processing on dept line
[23:45:08] <Bytram> chromas: take a look at this story submission: https://soylentnews.org
[23:46:33] <chromas> Yeah, that's standard for bloomberg
[23:46:49] <chromas> I should put a blacklist thinger in the bot I guess
[23:48:11] <Bytram> or, a check to see if the generated html contains that, and if so, at least provides the original URL for the editor to be able to get to whatever story was submitted
[23:48:33] <chromas> it does. try curl-ing any bloomberg link
[23:48:58] <Bytram> yes, I know Bloomberg does that
[23:49:10] <chromas> I'm not sure how they do their check, but there's a 307 redirect that firefox doesn't show in its debugger
[23:49:39] <Bytram> What I'm suggesting is that the original URL fed to the bot should somehow get to the editor so they can see what it was about
[23:49:52] <chromas> Oh, I was just gonna make it throw an error in irc
[23:50:18] <Bytram> the reported title on IRC is "Are you a bot?"
[23:50:33] <Bytram> one could argue the user needs to pay attention
[23:50:56] <chromas> True, but then it still puts junk in the queue
[23:51:03] <Bytram> OTOH, saying it is a sub-success is prolly not exactly correct, either.
[23:51:09] <chromas> irc needs a blink tag
[23:52:32] <Bytram> no, thanks
[23:53:09] <mrpg> then a wink tag
[23:55:23] <chromas> winkiblinks
[23:57:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> kuro, not anywhere near done but it's going along better. currently having a hangup with things not being updated in years on the install. i'll get back at it when i can.
