CSS for Resizing Video
Just a handy chunk of CSS to make your video embeds behave better. It’s out there but not a bad thing to spread farther.
This is why things are more difficult than they might be . . . a story of why I have no idea about anything or maybe it’s a parable of complexity and human frailty. In the beginning, we created a WordPress Multisite install and turned on BuddyPress. To make the groups works correctly we network activated bbPress. As a result, anyone logged into their accounts who visited any other rampages site became a Participant of that site (a bbPress user role that allows forum participation). People got very nervous about people being in their user roles. Other people became very unhappy their My Sites list had too many sites. I had to figure out two things as a result. First, I needed to stop auto-Participant association. I eventually found a way to do that but I still had to deal with the stuff that already happened. The right way to do it was to delete the users who were participants across the multisite. But . . . at that time we couldn’t access our database through anything but php myadmin and it wouldn’t run because the database was too big. So I had to treat the problem and strip the sites from the displayed list. Fast forward a year or so. At this point, we were able to turn off […]
One of the things I love about my little community of people is the in-process sharingI initially wrote “documentation” and then changed it so I wouldn’t hate myself for making stuff sound harder than it is. of work. Alan is a master of this and he puts in serious work.Even taking pictures – see evidence above In an attempt to give a little bit of energy back I present you a very rough version of the LPCLeast Possible Code SPLOT Story Brancher. To get at the roots of this idea, go read Alan’s initiating post. Alan’s making little web tools that don’t require logins and are focused on doing one small thing well (smallest possible online learning tools). Alan is capable of doing far more coding than I can so I tend to try to compensate by choosing non-programistan paths. This proof of concept took about 10 minutes this morning and probably shows that but it might inspire some deeper thoughts down the road. This is a quick and dirty example of how Gravity Forms would enable you to- create one form that enables the duplication/forking of whatever post it is in w/o requiring user login/account or creating new forms have the option to do some sort of incremental titling trackback to the parent post automatically for some sort of […]
