Hey, how can I get Discourse to do X?


#971

How do i quote text from an external source and make separate blocks of text?

Ie, when i Ctrl+V Ctrl+V but want the quote blocks to be distinct.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec eget mauris eu magna scelerisque pellentesque. Curabitur hendrerit faucibus massa sit amet sollicitudin. Praesent eget orci magna. Nulla tristique tellus ut ex sagittis bibendum. Morbi malesuada enim commodo, interdum nisl quis, maximus eros. Nulla at auctor ex, ultricies porta elit. Nullam ac laoreet neque. Quisque at sapien finibus, pharetra sem vitae, facilisis ante. Maecenas laoreet mi at nibh tempus sodales. Aliquam convallis aliquet congue. Etiam bibendum cursus tortor, eget tempor nisi fringilla a. Ut eget lorem elementum, tristique mauris et, varius ex. Suspendisse consectetur, elit nec vulputate molestie, lectus odio imperdiet arcu, non interdum augue sapien tristique orci.

Proin elit eros, ullamcorper nec urna id, viverra hendrerit felis. Fusce elit massa, laoreet ut metus sed, dapibus condimentum mauris. Phasellus hendrerit nibh ex. Nullam feugiat nulla dictum vestibulum placerat. Aenean eu lacinia urna. Donec in vestibulum nibh. Sed ut iaculis nisl. Aenean semper massa id erat pharetra, vel elementum quam suscipit. Donec vel volutpat purus. Quisque ut odio at sem molestie dignissim. Nunc massa metus, malesuada sit amet ipsum at, facilisis dapibus felis. Aenean imperdiet placerat ipsum, ut eleifend magna luctus at. Nam nec nisl vel magna iaculis laoreet quis a felis. Aliquam erat volutpat. Nulla pellentesque, ante sed ultricies venenatis, eros ante viverra sem, vel faucibus ex turpis ullamcorper est. Pellentesque at lectus lorem.

I paste them in separately, block quote them, but Discourse smashes them together. Do i have to type placeholder spaces for this to work correctly?

[quote]like this?[/quote]
[quote]second block[/quote]

#973

Well, that’s what i used to do in Vbulletin, so i guess it still works in Discouse? Trying to become a button-user and using the Blockquote button.

Yep. Blockquote doesn’t work.


#974

I agree the button method is a bit of a pain to get working correctly.


#975

Did someone enable the “like this post” option???

Thanks, heading there now…

Appropriate avatar. :)

I’ll take the silence to mean “no” but it’s really annoying to have Twitch videos autoplay when you enter a thread.


#980

That also annoys me. @wumpus claims it is a browser problem, per the Discourse forums.


#981

Why are some of my thread post counts red now? Does this have something to do with likes? (Maybe it means there’s new likes in a thread, but maybe not new messages?) There aren’t any new posts, and none of my recent posts were liked, afaict.


#982

Post counts with a ton of likes are colored red. It’s all part of the “experiment”.

That’s one setting I’d love if we could suppress by changing the CSS. The threads just stand out a lot (which I realise is the purpose) and it just looks messy.

Likes themselves aren’t more likely to make me read one thread over another and it doesn’t seem to me like it’s their intended purpose on this particular forum (especially if we want to avoid some of the gamification).

You can hover your mouse over it (if you are on a device that has a mouse) to see an explanation.

Note that user theming is pretty close now, it’s been deployed on meta.discourse for 3-4 days and I can push it here tomorrow.

“Qt3 by Night!” returns!


#986

That’s awesome.

It’ll also be a bit easier to work on my extension script once I remove all the theming code.


#987

A post was merged into an existing topic: Select your color theme preference for Discourse qt3


#988

I suggest keeping theme comments in the appropriate topic please.

I’m usually on mobile.

Looking at desktop now, and the red number text is waaaay more aggressive on my phone than on desktop. On desktop it’s kind of a reddish-brown, I probably woudn’t have noticed it if it wasn’t pointed out to me. On mobile it’s an unavoidable bright red.

Edit: oh, another one is kind of orange-y. Looks like it scales with the like ratio? That’s kind of annoying.

@wumpus what’s the default time for the “Automatically track topics I read after X time” setting? I remember thinking about changing mine when we first started on Discourse but can’t remember now if I did. Just curious.
