Update on UNIX.COM Site Upgrades (Desktop)

This post is about the "Desktop" view, not "Mobile' ...

First of all, I want to thank everyone for all the great comments, error checking and feature suggestions as we modernize the site, step-by-step.

Also, thank you for your patience with me when as we make the site better.

So far, we have done a lot and the site looks much better than a month ago. I added a Bootstrap and Font Awesome and Slider.js and more packages, and added a lot of jQuery features, etc; as you all know (those who have been following the site closely that is).

But, I still have not solved one of the original problems (the original sin) which is the fact that the CSS overflow function does not work for the bbcode pre tags, and so the scroll bar is currently for the entire post (wrong) and not for the text in the code tags.

I am pretty sure this problem happens because of how the original site uses table tags for each post; so I'm going to have to redesign all the posts to use only div tags without table tags (except for the small drop down / pop up menus).

There seems no way to get around this very boring and "not easy" part of the project, so I think I'll start on this in the next phase.

Basically, I think I'll create a new postbit template which on my user id will see, so when I fat finger some CSS or other make an error, only I will see the error, but you will only see the normal site.

Then, when we think I have it working OK, I'll make it live for testing.....

Thanks again.

dfo - Desktop Flickr Organizer for Gnome DESCRIPTION
DFO allows online/offline mode management of your photos. With DFO you can manage your existing photos and sets, create new sets, edit tags, descriptions, and permissions, contribute to group pools, and so on. Basically performing most of the tasks that Flickr's online man- agement tool Organizer does. NOTE
The first time you run DFO, the app won't know who you are or have access to your Flickr account, so all you will see is a window with sev- eral empty panes. To get started, select Connect from the File menu. DFO will open a link to the Flickr site in your default Web browser, where you must grant DFO authorization to connect to your Flickr account. This is a security precaution enforced by Flickr on all apps that use the Flickr API. FEATURES
* Add/Delete/Edit comments. Text search comments and their author names. * Post photos to blogs. * Easy Drag-n-drop photos from nautilus for uploading. * Image preview in file chooser dialog, shown when uploading photos. * Edit title, description, privacy and tags of photos set for uploading. * Allow reverting of edits done to photo.
