[AltWeb] AltME Web Mirror
Created this group for comments and suggestions regarding the web mirror for this AltME world.
If anyone has a small html hyperlink detector, it might be nice to add that into the code.
why not use styles? <td valign="top"><font color="#7878E6"><b></b></font></td> - instead can be <td class="person"></td>? I think it could take off about 30% of code.
(ah - yes, colors are different for different people, but anyway styles can reduce it)
Ok, missed this group -- Carl, just a thought (and see what others think) -- it's a little odd looking at the messages with newest on top. Another suggestion would be to do newest at bottom and put an anchor at the end so that incoming links start reading the page at the bottom to mirror the AltME view...
olivier auverlot comments: that a tiny interface for message submition would be a very very appreciated functionnality for the rebolers witch are on os that doesn't support AltMe
that's very unlikely to happen. sorry olivier, but you can use the ml and we can relay messages here when needed. someday (hopefully soon) we'll have a communication forum that is reachable by everyone.
Carl, you're very welcome to use the URI^ pattern in my Patterns.r script in the Rebol library.
That will detect most http:// etc patterns in plain text.
As already stated somewhere else by someone else ... it would be nice to filter out email-addresses, before mirroring to the web.
Ingo -- I sent Carl some code (based on some off Andrew's) to do that.
so - should we set more groups as web-public? anyone has objections?
as long as the email addresses are filtered out ... nope
Emails addresses are now being munged -- see msg 54 here: http://www.rebol.net/altweb/rebol3/chat232.html
hmm. the formatting needs to be fixed.
all you need to do is insert <br> as you parse each conversation and limit each line to some reasonable length
The problem with breaking lines is you can mess up scripts.
better to break some scripts than to piss off everyone who has to read really wide pages
one would think there should be a more elegant way to force html to stay within a certain % or pixel size
I remember Carl has some code to breal scripts halfway intelligently. Best way to suggest it to him (in this instance) is a Feedback to the blog.
Carl reports that he has fixed this now.
I'd completely forgotten this group existed :-) Just as a reminder to anyone else with a sieve-like memory: REBOL.org now hosts a mirror of the [web-public] groups in this world too. It has (in my opinion) three main improvements over the REBOL.net mirror: 1. all posts archived (not just latest 300 per group) 2 (therefore) permanent URLs if you need to point someone to a post 3. áll posts searchable http://www.rebol.org/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/rebol/aga-groups-index.r?world=r3wp
