Hi there,

i have a request and am not sure if you can do anything about it, but there's some thing that bothers me a lot with amigans.net since quite some time now.

See here
There is a code piece embedded in [ code ] in one of the posts, which is too long to fit the size of my browser window (Odyssey here, same with Netsurf, so it's not a browser thing) which renders a horizontal slider at the bottom (and out of sight) of the page.
I can't fully see what is written in some posts and have to scroll down to move the slider and back up again to read the rest, quite annoying.

It's nothing MUI can do about, see here for the rejected ticket.
As written above, Netsurf is doing it as well, so it's got nothing solely to do with Odyssey's (or Netsurf's) html engine (i think?).

Now i wonder if it would be possible to change the site's code to either limit a [ code ] entry to a fixed size (with a horizontal scrollbar afixed to it) or to make the horizontal scrollbar always visible, just like you did with the amigans.net banner, but on the bottom (maybe just above the "Powered by XOOOPS 2.0... banner)?


Alternatively i could add a bug item at the newly rejuvenated Odyssey github page?

Thank you for your message. I will try tonight to find a fix on that and make it more usable for everyone. Thanks for reporting it.

Unfortunately nothing has changed on my end.
The code part still widens the whole posts beyond of my window size and i still can't read the text.
Scrollbar isn't available either, still down the bottom, but i guess that wasn't what you fixed?

Maybe you see the cached version. Try to open it on an incognito browser or try to refresh using CTRL+R or CTRL+F5

But, i did :-/

It's not even working on a fresh page, just do the below and "preview" it, it goes far beyond the right border out of sight and everything else will vanish with it. I'm writing along to get a long enough line to show off that i cannot see what i was writing unless i scroll down, move the horizontal slider and scroll back up again.

For me and my set window size the text is cut off after "writing", maybe your window is bigger in size than mine?

edit:
Also this long [ code ] piece seem to trigger another bug with the avatar entries of all the posters before this post.
The size of the entries gets pulled to the right.
Another little bug

Oh... Sorry I missed that. The fix I did works fine on Chrome, Firefox etc, but Odyssey and especially NetSurf do not support CSS fully. I will try to find a way to make it work on those browsers as well.

Thank you for testing it.

No problem.

btw, i tested two more (to me) available browsers and none of them work

"Silk" Browser from my Kindle (probably too old, didn't find any version information)
"Internet" Browser form my Samsung Android phone (v11.1.1.52)

Thanks for your message. That's weird because I implemented the fix on Firefox on Linux as well. The thing is if the used CSS is cached and not the new one. Maybe a forced refresh could fix it (CTRL+R or CTRL+F5)

This "too wide to read" issue when using Odyssey makes Amigans.net almost unusable on an Amiga. Hopefully we can find a fix. I'm writing this to see if the "Preview" is also too wide. The preview is wrapping the text to fix the window and adjusts to the window size on the fly when I change the Odyssey window size.

I see that the above text was wrapped at 200 characters. If there is some
default line wrapping setting, maybe lowering it to 80 could be a temp fix?

It would probably be even easier, since only the [ code ] embedded text isn't wrapped or handled correctly and as such break the site.

If it would be possible i'd vote for a horizontal slider in the [ code ] part.
Together with the already available vertical slider this would make the site much more readable.

Unfortunately, this is not that easy. The reason is that those texts contain unbreakable lines and this is tackled only on latest CSS, that's why the fixed I did yesterday work on chrome and Firefox. Unfortunately, for Odyssey and especially NetSurf there is no way to break those texts. So, until that CSS is supported, I am afraid I cant do many things with wrapping these texts.

Even worse, I can't even hide them with extra divs around them because the items take their size based on those unbreakable texts, and they do not change with css, making the parent divs pretty wide.

Today did some changes, and one that I hope helps is that I changed the place where the horizontal bar shows up. It should be at the window border now, so available everywhere.

Also, fixed the width of the user info on every post, so they won't cover a lot of space without any reason.

Last thing I changed removed the fixed position from the header as this is not yet implemented in Netsurf and made the header disappear. Now the header is not always at the top of your window, so I am afraid you have to scroll at the top to access it, although we have links in forum to move you at the top automatically.

Hope you find those changes useful and make our website easier to use.

If you used NetSurf then the header was not visible at all, nor the menu. That's why I changed it. But if you need a fast link to scroll you at the top, there are plenty available in the forum.

If more people request it back, I can change it again. Actually, I am looking for a way to make it as it was, but also keep it visible for the NetSurf. This will cover everyone needs.

Just did a new update and brought back the sticky header for every browser, except NetSurf, where the header remains visible. This covers everyone's needs, I hope. :D
