Hey, how can I get Discourse to do X?


#1339

Is this the Discourse bugs thread? I can never remember if there is a separate one, but always believe there to be one, yet I can never find it.

Anyway, in the thread that may or may not be this one I remember someone complaining that they had a problem where discourse’s cursor and button presses would be “above” where they were actually pressing. Well, it keeps happening to me, so I just want to +1 that.

It makes that progress bar thingy really difficult to use if you’re at the bottom. And I was just unable to press the “reply” button. I had to go to my desktop to post the saved draft :(

Chrome/Android 6.0.1

Wrong topic, check the other one. Lots of posts about this there. TL;DR looks like an Android / Chrome bug.


#1341

@wumpus can we get the true dark theme you mentioned on Mac Power Users?


#1342

You are thinking of someone else?


#1343

Whoops, guess so, I thought you were Jeff Atwood.


#1344

He is, but your post lacks a lot of context. Maybe link / quote that other forum’s post?


#1345

Yeah, I was mistaken. They were talking about Discourse, and must have mentioned him. Thought it was him. (Podcast called Mac Power Users just started a Discourse forum, and were talking to people who set it up.)

Sorry, late night falling asleep listening.

Ermagerd @LeeAbe the jank input detection on mobile is unbearable.

Also, what kind of monster wants to switch off of Solarized Dark? Madness.


#1347

OLED true black would be far superior.


#1348

Madness!

Also the only high-quality screen I have is my work MacBook so bleh. Bleh, I say to you!


#1349

Yes, you speak the truth at last! 🙇‍♂️

Feel free to have them email me if they have Discourse questions!


#1350

Tomorrow Night (Bright) is true OLED black.


#1351

Thank you. Hadn’t tried that one because of the bright note. Looks great on my phone.

@wumpus

Is there any way to make a table here?

edit - nevermind, just realized I just don’t use markdown for it


#1353

That question came up recently in another thread and Discourse does support tables using the standard from some version of Markdown. I can’t recall which at the moment though. :/ But maybe you could Google it.


#1354

Yep, it’s the <table, <th, <tr stuff (with > after all those)


#1355

No that’s straight up HTML which does work fine but there is a Markdown implementation of tables which you can use instead. But I guess it doesn’t matter if that’s working for you. :)

Edit: Found the thread with the conversation here Suggestions for future improvements to our forum software


#1356

Son of a… Yep, you’re right!


#1357

Yes, Markdown Tables work. Follow the GitHub syntax for it.


#1358

Worth noting that copy and paste from popular spreadsheet programs just works automagically. It’s great!
