Just include the following in your custom CSS:

.page-recent .entry-poster { display: none !important; }
.page-entry .entry-poster { display: none !important; }

It's a hack I figured out just tonight. I spent awhile on it before realizing I didn't need to use > (CSS child selector), which works on .page-recent but not on .page-entry here.

... for all Dreamwidth users!

First, you can use Markdown on Dreamwidth by putting "!markdown" at the start of a post, without the quotation marks! This lets you use Markdown formatting instead of HTML (it's way simpler and less verbose), and automatically link to other DW accounts with an at-sign like on Twitter.

Second, you can upload pictures to Dreamwidth without using email! Just visit https://www.dreamwidth.org/file and click on "Upload Images." The "Image Code" it gives you creates a 100x100 thumbnail, but you can just copy the URL inside of the "a href" part and then put that in an <img> or Markdown image tag. Don't forget to add alt text for accessibility purposes!

Note that DW's hosting seems to choke on anything over 1 MB, so please remember to resize your pic and/or convert it to .jpg. You may also want to put something like this in your journal's custom CSS, to keep pictures from taking over the screen and going outside of your entries:

img { max-width: 100% !important; max-height: 600px; }

There are a handful of other CSS hacks I use as boilerplate for any DW journal. Maybe I ought to post them sometime. :>

... sort of.

You can visit [community profile] capsulerp now, and see useful links that we have for players, including our earlier summary of the game's rules (which doubles as an application thread). Right now we're getting back to players about the last few things to finalize on their sheets, and trying to get character sheets and the site itself formatted.

Speaking of which, if anyone knows CSS better than we do maybe you can tell us how to style only the entry text (including list items and headings) to use our preferred sans-serif fonts, while keeping the weird sci-fi font everywhere else. It's atmospheric and all, but it's a little hard on the eyes for reading long blocks of text. >_o

Remember the mech on the cover of the Tau codex? We got a boxed set of three of them several months ago, and have finally managed to assemble our first one!

A gray plastic model of a mecha, about 10 centimetres tall, standing on top of a six-sided dice cube.

"Oh, I'm sorry ... is the camera already on?"

I love how the tiny head and the little folded-back antennae make XV8s look. Isn't it cute? Sort of like the Games Workshop dice cube and all the little d6es in it are. ^^;

Anyway, we still need to assemble the other two, clean and trim all the weapons and support systems, then prime All The Things for painting and magnetize them so we can swap out the add-on gear.

There's a lot of other stuff that's been going on that we wanted to write about, but we just thought we would post this first. ^^; We also modified our sidebar text, uploaded our CSS tweaks to Microsoft's code-hosting site, and have been trying to figure out a perplexing mobile layout bug in our website's theme.

So apparently I was finally able to access the WordPress install [personal profile] burning_ground set up on her shared web hosting, and spent awhile poking at it today (well, yesterday, but you know what I mean). I'm not sure I actually want to go with WordPress, though ... Dreamwidth just seems to work for us, in a lot of ways.

Speaking of Dreamwidth, we've updated the colour scheme on our journal to be more readable (and more pink). We're also asking some questions over on [community profile] style_system if anyone wants to help answer them.

Incidentally, you can use SkyDrive to make surveys. Click here to take our extremely random test survey!
