    As a fork of @Atelierbram’s Pen, another method is to remove the list-style and apply the square via pseudo content.

    Off the cuff… I would start zoomed out so people can see the whole thing, then have a very explicit button for zooming in like “See image at full size” which zooms in to a readable level. And ideally allow pinch/zooming/panning even without the button press.

    I’ll make a note to get something up.

    We do have a post on indeterminate checkboxes: https://css-tricks.com/indeterminate-checkboxes/

    And browser support is here: http://caniuse.com/#feat=css-indeterminate-pseudo

    I’d love to hear if anyone has real world use-cases for when they have (or would) use :indeterminate in CSS.

    I think the issue is that when you reference a symbol, you’re just referencing that chunk and that’s it.

    <svg>
      <style></style>
      <symbol id="this"></symbol>
    </svg>
    

    This will go get the symbol, but not the styles:

    <svg>
      <use xlink:href="this"></use>
    </svg>
    

    You might try putting the style block inside the symbol. I’ve never tried that but it stands to reason it might work. Or, move the style block to the document where you are using <use>

    This is a super old thread, but I just had a “OMG I’m glad we’re back to considering FOUT good, because otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to use this site” (because I was using internet in a car and it was slow and spotty, but important).

    Perhaps you’re loading different versions? A live demo or reduced test case of the issue is in order here to track down the exact problem.

    Looks like some quotation marks in wrong places leads to syntax errors. Moving it over to CodePen was helpful as it checked the syntax and displayed errors right away:

    That’s a neat idea! I’ve never thought of that or seen it proposed. I don’t know enough about language design to know how it would play out in reality, but it certainly seems to tie the two languages together cleverly at first glance.

    Very cool that it’s out. We’ll give it a shout on the CodePen blog soon.

    You’d probably want to make the content inside the popup the thing that scrolls, and have the “X” just a block level element sitting inside the popup, not part of the scrolling stuff.

    Thank you very much!

    This is a straight up bug, so I ported it over there:

    @alexzaworski

    The ultra-tracked-out-kinda-thin-airy headers in some places (eg “tips” in the sidebar) don’t do it for me

    Changed those. The didn’t do it for me either. Trying this. Not sure it will stick either.


    @Paulie_D

    That’s nice but the font-face is pretty ugly to me.

    It didn’t change. Noted on the dislike though. I like it. Not totally in love with it, but it’s small and fast and has a lot of variety of weights and stuff. I think it does the job well.

    The size is quite a bit bigger, yes, most comments on last design was that it was too small. The very largest body text gets is 20px which I feel like is big but not overly huge.


    @Shikkediel

    I’d put the “Choose Forum” and tips at the top of the page.

    I’d love to get rid of the sidebar, but I just haven’t been able to bring myself to do it because just “widening everything up” isn’t useful. It makes line length to long, or if you limit that, then there just is nothing over there and doesn’t feel like a good use of space. Putting everything in a vertical column doesn’t seem like a good answer. For now, I think the sidebar does a good job.


    @Beverleyh

    it has the effect of squishing text into a long thin column. 4 or 5 words on a line.

    I made some adjustments to the forums on the smallest-screen size where you don’t get that left gutter under the avatar anymore, because I move the avatar to the upper right. I think that uses the space a bit more when more line length is needed.


    @ishwerdas

    The guide have issues

    Fixed that straight away. It was related to the # links for headers. Since most posts don’t have ID’s in headers all the way through, I’m programatically adding them, and there are a lot of trick edge cases!


    @Koopa

    Center the content for displays wider than 1900px

    Sorry, I like it that it’s not centered. Most people agree with you, for what it’s worth. I like it that it’s off center. Maybe that will be this design’s annoying grain of sand that is my way of saying: not all designs have to be the same. You are being annoyed be a preconception of how you think things should be.

    The reason the nav items come to the front is so they aren’t hidden behind the Menu thing when active. Not perfect, perhaps, but if nothing else it’s a cool reminder on how you can reorder things with flexbox easily.


    @camartinez1229

    scrolling performance is atrocious, and my browser consumes 100% of one of my CPU cores.

    You’re the second person to say that. I haven’t experienced it either, but I also really have only tested cross-browser on my MacBook Pro, which is of course entirely unfair. I’ve never even heard of Pale Moon.

    This is one of those tricky situations where I’d like to do something but I’m not sure what. I don’t love the idea of just removing it when I like the background and it doesn’t cause any problems for most people. If I could do @media (memory: low) { } that would be nice. I’d rather not browser sniff.
