I just updated LWPx::ParanoidAgent and Net::SSL on the Dreamhacks server - something that I've needed to do for some time. In the process about seventy bajillion other modules that they relied on needed to be updated, too (mainly to do with HTTP/SSL stuff) so the following modules (and any submodules included in their distribution) are now at their most recent (and the links given lead to the exact versions installed from CPAN):

23 different distributions in total )

As this is rather a lot of modules, some of which can be core to various things that the codebase does, you should restart your Apache if it's currently running; there may be errors otherwise. Also, it's possible that the update of these modules might somehow cause brokenness in some areas on the Dreamhacks server; please do comment here if that's the case (or open a GitHub issue).

(Please note: This only applies to brokenness on the Dreamhacks server. Nothing has changed on dreamwidth.org, so any issues there should be raised in a Support request as usual.)

Error message from the wiki engine?

I'm getting a bunch of repeats of

when viewing http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php/Newbie_Guide:_How_to_Patch_Styles_and_Themes, and I suspect, a number of other pages. (This is the only page so far for which the messages remain visible after the page itself displays, but I noticed transient messages on other pages that may be the same.) Is it just me, or is anyone else getting those or similar messages?

Mobile Styles: options

Since the last time I posted, we've made live some additional tweaks for mobile styles. Medium sized screens (tablet / phone landscape) should in general handle the ratio of sidebar to content better, and not let the sidebar crowd into the content as much. Comments should also no longer go into one-word-per-line in extreme cases on certain layouts, and should always have a background even if they're so deeply threaded that they start going past the sidebar.

But of course what works in general may not work for your journal! So there's one set of options that's journal-specific.

If you're mostly happy with how things appear, but want to tweak the width at which changes are applied to your journal, go to your journal display settings > Additional Options, and then look for

"The width at which the layout switches from single column mode (mobile view) to multiple columns if selected (tablet view). "

and

"The width at which the layout switches to larger screen mode (desktop view) and can afford some extra whitespace. "

Setting a width in the first option will make the biggest difference; the second option should only be minor whitespace tweaks depending on the layout.


Meanwhile, if what you want is to control how you view journals across all of Dreamwidth, there's a different option for that. If you'd like to always view the desktop / big screen version on your mobile phone or tablet, go to your Account Display Settings and check "Turn off mobile view for this device".

That will carry over to all journals you view whether you're logged in or logged out. It's device-specific* so if things work on your phone but not your tablet, or vice versa, you can check or uncheck this setting per-device.

* more accurately, it's browser-specific. If you're using multiple browsers on a device, you'll have to check it for each browser.

Some people are reporting having trouble reaching the site, especially from the UK/EU. Unfortunately, after looking into it, it seems to be an internet routing problem and not something we can fix on our end. Hang tight; our hosting service is pretty good at working around those sorts of problems pretty quickly.

This tour is a group effort. Thanks to [personal profile] kareila for rounding up and coding all the issue links! I provided the descriptions.

Here we have a lot of fixes for styles issues, and a lot of stuff from [staff profile] fu! This is a more prompt release than some, because everybody was really anxious to get some of the mobile wonkiness introduced with the last update fixed in this one. We also have stuff from [staff profile] denise, [staff profile] mark, [personal profile] hotlevel4, and [personal profile] exor674.

This code tour is live: the code push entry is over in [site community profile] dw_maintenance as usual.

We'll be starting the code push relatively soon; there may be a few blips here and there as we work. I'll update this post when it's all finished!

EDIT: Code has been pushed. Let us know if you encounter any problems! A list of the (many) bugfixes included in this push will be forthcoming.

If you weren't able to make today's meeting in #dreamwidth-dev, the next meeting will be on Saturday, August 23, at 12 pm EDT. Also there will be another hack date on Sunday, August 17, also at 12 pm EDT.

Here's a list of topics we discussed today, and most of them will probably be revisited next time:

  • code push tomorrow, should fix issues with new mobile styles
  • Github Issues revamped, updated docs on wiki
  • possible alternative project trackers and chat platforms
  • scheduled another social hack time for 8/17
  • encourage "what are we working on" discussion/issues outside of IRC
  • reconsidering how we name/advertise release branches


In attendance were myself, Afuna, zorkian, exor674, and V_PauAmma_V.

Raw chat log under the cut. )
