Hey :) ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)

Heyo, Ungatt =D ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

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). ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)

Nah, just wanted to use Greek letters for my sig. It has been like this for a while now. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

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)
That XD You here to hang for a while, or just dropping by? ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

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)

Good to know someone from the old days has come back to visit =) ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Patching the images security risk

Please feel free to contact me separately, we can discuss patching it. --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

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. ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)
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. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 13:43, 14 July 2013 (PDT)

Just finished doing that for the HS01 nav and I was just about to start the BS01 nav. I don't mind doing the templates too. Thanks for the heads-up. ~Ungatt Trunn (Colloquium)

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. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 14:04, 14 July 2013 (PDT)

My code page uses some stuff between img tags to affect the page, does that count as using this hack? ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

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)

Rats...That would be much appreciated, my format page was inspired by CC, but most of it what it is now was put together by Danwojo and SK. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

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. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (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)

Wait, so we won't even be able to adjust the dimensions of an external image? ζω·τωμαναExternal Image
Correct. I really must apologize to everyone for the trouble this patch is going to create, but I assure you it is very necessary. I'm sure most of you remember times when BZP had virus scares, this patch will help to ensure that doesn't happen with BS01. ~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·τωμαναExternal Image

What's up

Welcome back! It's cool you're into Latin! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 22:22, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
