Hi! I'm having a bit of a problem here. I wanted to edit a layout I made for a friend to use on her community. It has a fixed navigation at the bottom of the page which I don't know if could be causing this problem, but the sidebar looks right on recent entries page but it looks wonky everywhere else.

I have it testing here so you can look through the css. If you could help me out a bit D: I would be very grateful.

Second (and last, I think) book in Hamilton's Chronicle of the Fallers sub-series of his Commonwealth books (now up to about N, maybe N log(N), sub-series).

We follow a few main viewpoint characters, some of which were present for the previous book. It's eminently readable and while there's some on-page sex, it's at least pretty much down to "sex happens" rather than stroke-by-stroke descriptions, which is better.

Would I recommend this? I am in two minds, if you've read a bunch of Commonwealth books, this is likely to evoke the same feeling. If you haven't this really is not where to start.

First book by Daniels that I've read. On the whole, a pleasant surprise. I suspect this is in the "YA" bucket, not because of the content, but based on the formatting. Wider line-spacing, for one. Also a very quick read, based purely on the ebook-reader's page number function, 300 pages, or within 1%-2% error margin, started on the morning commute, finished during the evening commute. Clear YA sign, that. 250 pages, I could've believed it was just the quality of the book (the better, the faster I read, or something like that). Where was I?

Ah, yes. We follow Danny Tozer, who, when the book starts, is a teen with one set of problems, which quickly change for whole other set of problems, which slowly transmute to a third, somewhat related, set of problems. The rapid change at the start have something to do with "a dying superhero just gifted his powers to you", and the slow transmutation is definitely related to the same thing (and various other reactions of the book's world to this).

This is not the bookmeme post I was planning, but this one is better, even though (until now) it didn't mention lesbians, nor trans-phobic feminists. But you can't have it all, people.

Fourth in chronology, fifth in publication order. Gladstone's Craft Sequence goes from strength to strength. In this volume, we meet several characters we've met in previous volumes, with some twists and/or new information occasionally revealed.

If I had to summarise these books, I'd say they fall in that narrow overlap between theology and jurisprudence. Or possibly gaping void. It probably makes sense if you've red them, though.

But, basically magic, fantasy, epic, thingie, wossname. Go, read, pretty good.

First in internal chronology, fourth in publication (and presumably writing) order. Still an eminently readable series.

Neither felt exceedingly groundbreaking, but neither was a waste of time reading.

You should probably read this and ponder the contents. Especially if you think you would be outraged by it.

Reread.

been a while since I read this. It's basically three novellas/long-shorts with a framing story wrapped around them. Works pretty well. One of these is heavily echoed in KKomarr.

Seems I've managed to not post as frequently as I should, so I am somewhat in a catch-up mode, which means the next few posts will all be quite short n waffling.

In short, pretty good reading.

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

How to move "back to top" jumplink with s2?

Hi, everyone. I've been meaning to ask this question for years: a long time ago [personal profile] foxfirefey gave me some code to have a "back to top" link with because Transmogrified didn't have one. Later on, she modified the code because it kept moving around on page re-sizing. Her mod solved that problem but possibly begat another: the jumplink doesn't clear short entries/pages with little content.

While this doesn't normally affect .page-tag, .page-icon, .page-archive, .page-recent, .page-read, or .page-network (but it could; the content on those views just happens to be long enough to clear the jumplink) it affects some .page-month views and short entries, reply views with short comments being replied to, reply views where the post and comment form combined won't clear the jumplink, and so on.

Here's an example of the problem in viewable action, seen in the month view.

In playing with the live HTML editor in Firefox the other night I realized I can make the jumplink clear - and stay in place - even with little page content present only if I put it in a pretty weird part of the HTML; it looks like I'd have to take it out of $this->print_body(); and move it to $this->print_module_section("two"); right before the <div style="clear:both"> that's there to clear the footer.

This is a screencap of where the jumplink would need to go, according to live HTML editing: https://marahmarie.dreamwidth.org/file/72191.png

My s2 layer is public and viewable here: my s2 layer.

That said, if anyone can think of a better spot for it in the s2, I'm open to any and all ideas! Fwiw, I've tried CSSing it into clearing but so far, without any luck.

I can't write original s2 nor modify s2 like this (only the simplest snippets of it; this unfortunately didn't qualify) so I'm curious if anyone knows how to move the jumplink without breaking other things (which I actually did three times before giving up the other night in live code: every time I went into our compiler and tried to move it where the HTML live editor seems to think it should go, my sidebar wound up resting in my content body, while my content got pushed clear off the top of the page, so whatever I was trying to do to get this right was not working).

Any help is gladly appreciated!
