sing that cold water
I know so well,
be that dark current
I carry in my veins.

let it take me under
to the shallows in winter,
see the ice stretch above
an opaque and cracked sky.

listen for sturgeons
and feel the eels,
dream in hibernation
on the lakebed.

sing the winter water
I've been promised,
be that killing cold
I was born in.

wait for my mother,
count the dead here,
my gookum, my uncle,
everyone I knew.

forget the sun
I lied to,
give up the warmth
I wasted away,

sing that ice road,
pray for frostbite,
beg for winter's mercy,
be numbed by snow.

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!

Hi! Wondering if I could get a bit of help here.

I'm currently using the Venture layout and I need to position an image somewhere. :)

Ideally I'd like the image to appear at the bottom of my "profile" module, so is there any custom CSS I can use to include it in that module?

If that's not possible, is there a way to remove the header from the custom text module so it will display without a title, so I just can stick the html img code in there?

Thank you in advance ♥

 I'm using style Heads Up, I was originally using my imported LiveJournal one but I wanted them to look different. 

I was wondering if there is anyway to move the Navigation link from the top of my journal to the bottom. It appears on both the top and the bottom once I go back through my journal entries but I only want to have them on the bottom not the top. 

I have no idea how to do CSS, the only thing I did know was how to put in my own header image.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Problem solved in comments.

Hello

I've recently moved her from LJ and I am using Practicality layout on both my journals here (both are paid for).

I would like to have entry navigation links at the top of each entry as well as at the bottom, similar to that found in the Flexible Squares Layout at LJ.

Any assistance would be very welcome. :-)

Could one of you kind souls link me to the page where I can set the style for my reading page and posting page? I set it to Lynx, which I hate, and can't recall now how I did that.

Thanks!

 I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud, 
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle, 
Skin and bone.
 
And just as I 
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.
 
That’s why we 
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.

Images auto-resize (RESOLVED)

Hi all. :)

I've just made the final step to import LJ to my dead DW account. I don't wish to bother with installing a custom style and picked "Argyle" theme from the ones available.

I just occurred into an issue that makes me go mad.

For years, LJ didn't resize the images in your entries, so if you have a pic bigger than the container (or even your screen), you just got the horizontal scrollbar.
Recently, though, LJ started to auto-resize them and in my LJ style they get resized to 500px. Aspect ration is respected. I was then forced to modify all my posts to add a link for the fullsize (xx_original.jpg) pic.

I should also note that in the html for the entry I always specify the width and height of every image.


On DW, though (or, at least, in the style I'm using) there is no resize. I tried to manually the code seen here and then add some variations of

.entry-content img {
max-width: 99%;
height: auto;
}


in the custom css, changing from "99%" to "100%" or "500px". Anyway, the point is that aspect ration is never respected, the image keeps the original height and therefore the images gets stretched.
Same post: on LJ and on DW. (put the max-width to 500px so you can visibly see the difference).

A research on google didn't help, the code above should be apparently enough. Is there any way to force the aspect ration to be mantained on my theme? I don't really want to edit every single post to change the width and height values (and doing calculations for every single image so to respect ration - see, open every image in image editor, scale to 500 and note down the new height value) and, at this point, I'm too much used to the image resized that I don't want to see the original size in the entry anymore.

I use Argyle for Crisped. My account is free.


Thank you. :)

Still I Rise by Maya Angelou

[personal profile] bairnsidhe posting in [community profile] poetry

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there's nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

The Silent Sentinel by Josh Lee

bairnsidhe: (Default)
[personal profile] bairnsidhe posting in [community profile] poetry
 The sun has gone without a glow;
No moon is there to shine tonight,
And sleepy stars refuse to show,
There is no noise; there is no light.

The silent sentinel walks his post,
While thoughts are flying through his head,
Before him stalks a mighty host;
They are the spirits of the dead.

He sees the patriarchs of old,
The scholars of great renown,
The bondsmen who to chains were sold;
He sees the fool and royal clown.

He sees the kings of kingly mien;
He sees the warriors strong and brave,
And all the dead are in that train
For every soul has left the grave.

Belshazzar lived, but had to die,
And mighty Caeser joined the throng;
Napoleon's men had passed him by,
And Washington had come along.

The silent sentinel walks his post
While thoughts are flying through his head.
"How soon," he thinks, "will my own ghost
Be keeping step among the dead?"

Who leads the army of the dead?
The greatest general ever known.
They say that God is at the head
And he commands it from the throne.

On earth the great commanding head
Requires citations for the deed.
Not so the Captain of the Dead,
He sees with omnipresent heed.

In the silence of the night
He notes the struggle for the goal;
He sees the hero bravely fight
The bitter battle in his soul.

We mortals never know the truth;
The bravest deeds are never known
By men of earth forsooth
But by the Commandant alone.

And so He decorates heroes
With His divine, immortal hands,
And those deserving praise He knows,
He knows them all from foreign lands.

He pins a cross upon a mother,
But, no, it's not a Croix de Guerre;
He pins a cross upon another,
It is the cross that Christ did bear.

Women who bear the battle's brunt,
Women who wait in silent prayer
For husbands serving at the front,
Come forth their honor to share.

Before the Army of the Dead,
He calls a boy who peddles news,
A weary soul who scrubs for bread,
A cobbler who repairs old shoes.

And many heroes of the earth
Are never decorated there,
And many men of royal birth
In that great honor have no share.

For God respects no birth or rank
But metes out justice unto men,
Rewarding justly Hun or Yank
For every deed of sword or pen.

The silent sentinel walks his post
While thoughts are flying through his head.
He knows that men from every coast
At last will march among the dead.

The importer has (mostly) caught up!

[staff profile] denise posting in [site community profile] dw_maintenance
Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!

I'm terribly sorry, this is probably the wrong place to ask for help, but I'm doing it here anyway because I couldn't find the right place.

The table I have in my bio doesn't display the way it should and I just can't figure out what the problem is. Is this even fixable?
ETA: To be more specific, the cell widths & heights aren't right, although they're in the table code and cellpadding is set to 0.

The Second Coming by W.B. Yeats

[personal profile] bairnsidhe posting in [community profile] poetry

Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.


Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out

When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi

Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert

A shape with lion body and the head of a man,

A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,

Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it

Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again; but now I know

That twenty centuries of stony sleep

Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,

Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Make Subjects into Links?

[personal profile] lady_noremon posting in [community profile] style_system
I recently added the Tabular Indent layout to my DreamWidth using the [community profile] starlit tutorial, and the Tabular Indent source code from InsaneJournal. Then changing all the ""friends"" to ""read"". Everything is working really well, except the Subjects are not links for some reason? I saw on previous posts that cited Flexible Squares having this issue to use the [community profile] starlit version of the code. But as Tabular Indent isn't one of their edited codes, I'm not sure where I would change? Thank-you very much if you can help!

EDIT---
I would also please like to know how to have "(no subject)" as a Subject if an entry doesn't have one.

EDIT---
The Tags, Current Music, Subject, and such seem to not always be displaying in the same order. On my LiveJournal the order is: Tags, Current Music, Current Location, Security, Subject, Time, Current Mood. And I would like to carry it over to here. I saw in the edited Flexible Squares that they have it set-up as like paragraphs for each of those, but I don't understand how to transfer that to Tabular Indent.

Couple of quick questions (RESOLVED)

Hiya, folks!

The (unwieldy) name is gdelgiblueeyes, but you can just call me "Blue Eyes."

My community [community profile] johnheartpaul has recently migrated from LJ to DW (ToS issue), and we've been finding the process very user-friendly and trouble-free (well, once I figured out the style settings stuff and had imported our journal's default style behind the custom CSS with the help of this link), with the minor exception of a couple of snags that I was hoping maybe style_system could help with.
  1. In comparing our profile here to our LJ counterpart, you will note that in the nav.strip, we didn't have Tags or Memories listed at LJ, and we'd like to keep it that way. Is there any way to make that work?
  2. Our custom style for the journal was designed for the new wave of LJ, where individual posts on the main page linked to a generic entry format (for example, clicking "Leave a Comment" -- or the entry's title -- on the first entry presently on my page would lead to something like this) instead of a separate page in our custom format. I'm guessing there's no way to replicate this specific experience, but viewing the comment form on a sample entry from the present DW incarnation will show you just how clunky it looks in our custom format. Anyone wanna troubleshoot how to make it look less like ass?
UPDATE: Thanks to [personal profile] healingmirth  for their help! All issues are resolved.

I basically inherited the task of porting this thing over here for mods who are way less tech-savvy, but my own skill only goes so far. Any help would be very much appreciated! (The tags are also a total guess, so anyone who knows more and runs things, feel free to put better ones on here. Thanks!)

The Line-Up by Josh Lee

[personal profile] bairnsidhe posting in [community profile] poetry
 I lined up for my papers
   When I started the game;
I lined up at the office
   And I lined up at the train.

I lined up when I landed
  And I got my soldier's tag,
I lined up with the rookies,
  And I got my barracks bag.

I lined up in the morning,
  And I lined up for retreat.
I lined up at the canteen
  And I lined up where they eat.

I lined up for inspections,
  And they happened every day,
I lined up at the mailbox
  And I lined up for my pay.

I lined up with my rifle
  And I shot across the farm;
I lined up for the doctors
  And they shot me in the arm.

I lined up for my passes
  So that I could go to town;
I lined up at the harbor
  When the plank was lowered down.

I lined up on the steamer
  For every guard detail,
And when the waves were tossing,
  I lined up at the rail.

I lined up at the sick bay
  When afflicted with disease;
They always marked me "duty"
  And prescribed for me CC's.

I lined up for my choc'late
  And my commissary stuff;
I lined up for seconds
  When I didn't get enough.

And when the war was over,
 I lined up just the same,
But by and by one summer
  That final line-up came.

I lined up for the steamer
  And it brought me home again;
I was so bloomin' happy
  That I couldn't hold it in.

And when I saw the statue,
  It was glory well I reckons;
And if my country needs me,
  I'll line up then for seconds.

SOLVED, with multiple options. THANK YOU!

I have recently started using my phone to access DW more often, and unsurprisingly I am finding that my styles, which I love and prefer to use on my desktop and laptop, do not play nicely with the tiny phone screen real estate.

Is there a way to keep my usual styles, but view pages when I'm on my phone using a different style, such as Mobility, instead?

[Edit to add] I'm specifically hoping to use an actual style rather than "?style=site" or "?style=light". [end edit]

Thanks for any advice you can give!
