- Hey :)
- Hallo! :) Are you learning Greek, Tomana? I ask because, although I am a medievalist, my department is hosted by the Classical Studies department, so I work with a lot of Greek stuff (despite being a latinist :P).
- Aah. I suppose that explains why there are no diacritics (of which ancient Greek has 9), although modern Greek does shy away from diacritics. (I know this 'cause I had to make a Greek keyboard for my work and it's a pain programming all the possible combinations >.<). ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)
I'll probably be hanging here for a while. Normally I'm swamped in studies. This summer, despite working full time, I've lots of free time on my hands and it's nice to reconnect. ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)
Patching the images security risk
- I lost all of my contacts from my old GMail account. If you contact me through uWaterloo's White Pages, I can hook you up with my new account.
- Just so you guys know, the newer templates currently rely on the hack in order to switch tabs and to load the background images. If you want, I might be able to write some code up that you can copy/paste into Common.css and Common.js so that we can stop relying on it. -- talk) 13:43, 14 July 2013 (PDT) (
- Man, this hack is used all over... >.< ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)
- Sorry about that, it's just that it was the only way I could implement CSS and JS when I was designing them since I couldn't edit the actual CSS and JS files. Anyway, I know Template:Toa, Template:OtherBeing, Template:DarkHunter, Template:Skakdi, Template:Skrall, Template:Glatorian, Template:Makuta, and Template:Rahi need fixing, but there might be more I haven't thought of as well. -- (talk) 14:04, 14 July 2013 (PDT)
- Unfortunately Tomana, it looks like a lot of your code's functionality will be killed by this patch. This patch really is needed though in order to prevent malicious JS. I can try to rewrite as much of your code as possible without relying on the hack, after all, my ChameleonColor code was pretty impressive and didn't rely on the hack. ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)
- When the patch has been fixed, will the style and title tags still work for images? I ask because I'm working on a vector version of the WikiNav and it uses both currently, but I can change that if necessary. -- talk) 21:40, 16 July 2013 (PDT) (
Not with the Wiki's img tag, no. The patch's code is very simple: it discards any text that occurs after a single or double quotation mark (including the quotation mark). So any attributes, JS, HTML, or other code is lost when the page is parsed. The patch has already been added to HS01 and I've fixed the HS01's current nav. I'm just waiting on Swert to copy the file over to BS01 and give me the rights to edit MediaWiki.js and MediaWiki.css so I can fix the nav and templates here. ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)
I can modify the plugin to allow for a <img width="x" height="y">foo</img> syntax. It'll take a little more work, but I don't wanna rob you of the ability to make any modifications to images. ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)
- Having that small ability would be great. I can do alignment left/right etc. with div tags, but I don't know of another way to change the size of external images. I'll still have to make another large edit to my History Page XD but at least it won't necessarily be to remove all the unruly images hosted offsite. No doubt this would also affect some people's signatures and a fair number of other personal pages. ζω·τωμανα•
