i got it working now. i had to hold down shift when reloading the page. it didnt seem to work when i cleared the cache so idk what the difference is there.
also i changed the https:// part in the filter to || as that matches http requests and www.selectbutton.net requests but i dont think that matters as everything seems to be served from https://selectbutton.net (??)
also yes it was slime’s. i’ve been trying to block some other avatars for a long time but they were easier to ignore. i think ppl should definitely have the avatar they want, so i didn’t want to say anything.
so several other users have avatars that animate at all times, even in bloodpotion notifications, and yet mine only works when hovering over my posts or viewing my user profile. same for doolittle and scratch. not complaining, just curious about the discrepancy
Some users had gif avatars before Discourse stopped supporting them upstream. Those animate at all times. I do not know exactly why this is, except that until this new plug-in there wasn’t a way to circumvent the sunsetting based on research on meta.discourse.org. We try not to write custom features outside of the CSS because we don’t have a regular Ruby dev on hand, hence the plug-in.
site was down for a while because my automatic cert renewal script that runs in the early on the 3rd of the month needs to fetch upstream updates, and upstream had broken for long-running sites like ours:
We’ve added a CSS component to enable video embedding behind the “hide details” tag. This should not affect any other part of the forum, but please note the change and let us know if there are any issues.
Is it just me, or do other people get YouTube videos you’ve played farther up the thread starting themselves playing again after you’ve been scrolling down the thread to catch up?
This generally happens to me when I let the news thread go for 100 posts or something. I go there, start reading down, playing a view videos one by one, probably stopping them partway through. Then I guess I task switch to another program or tab or something and come back, I dunno, but at some point all of the videos I’d watched farther up the thread start playing their noise. = o ALL OF THEM AT ONCE! ; )
