My hope is that these eventually become obsolete.

CYSCE (CYS Chrome Extension)

CYSFFE (CYS Firefox Extension)

CYSFiddle (page script testing environment)

CYSugar (syntactic sugar for CYS Script)

But, uh, totally go ahead and use them in the meantime.

De Milite Inprudenti

Do you know what happens to knights who dare oppose me? They’re soundly beaten, torn to shreds, reduced to mere ashes, utterly and completely obliterated. No one can defeat the great and mighty (and—dare I say—quite handsome) Knarr'ator. I’m the best, most awesomest dragon there ever is, was, and will be. And yet here you stand, just a character in my story, challenging me like the fool you are. If you think you stand a chance against me, you’ve got another think coming.

But by all means, go ahead and try.

Slaying Song

It seems you’ve found yourself within
The troublesome affair
Of trekking through the timberland
To slay the dragon there.

They claim it a ferocious fiend;
However will you fare?

Vides meam barbam, et amas eam!

Joka! Sisi jificheni!?

This is doubtlessly terrible Kiswahili.

Oh, I see what's going on. You'll need to add this after the opening style tag:

  html {
    min-height: 100vh;

Not happening for me but you can add a no-repeat in there too to prevent it.

Add center / cover right before the semicolon.

Yeah; there's a dropdown to change the chapter start page. To change the very first page of the story, though, the page of course has to be in chapter 1.

Image url? on 11/25/2020 5:03:02 PM

Yeah, this is the way to do it. Much less to worry about if you're putting it in a page script. The style code I provided goes in between those double quotes. (But don't include that initial quote before $PAGETEXT.)

Try this instead:

Image url? on 11/24/2020 11:45:08 PM

Yeah, it does say to left click on the image but that isn't the way to do it. You need to right click on it and select "Copy Image Location" or "Copy Image Address" or similar.

Insert code snippet? on 11/18/2020 3:48:17 PM

That's for displaying examples of code. (Also, print() in JS is for opening the printing dialog.)

Yeah, it means that as long as you have the extension, they won't poke out of their bounds.

It's kind of the fault of HTML, though. Sure the RTE lets you make images "float" to the left or right, but HTML has just always treated floating elements weirdly. By default, they basically act like they have no "height" and until recently the best solution to that was very hacky.

New update is live for FF and Chrome. Not much, just a few fixes, including the new Dark Fantasy category appropriately being swapped out for the old School-Based. The other changes besides that are:

  • Forum posts on the home page are now dynamic (auto tagging/linking)
  • The glitchy color transition when hovering over posts in the dark theme is fixed
  • Floating elements (e.g. images when inserted via the RTE) can no longer overflow out of forum posts
  • Table header colors are updated appropriately in the dark storygame viewer theme
  • Sneak peek linking works properly when there are asterisks in the title
