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?

Exp. bar on 4/18/2018 2:36:48 AM

Nah, no ifs. All you need to do is plug the percentage into the CSS and you'll only need to do it once.

width: " + %EXPPERC +"%;

Exp. bar on 4/17/2018 7:23:40 PM

Two images: one for the background, one for the bar. For the HTML, three nested div elements: the container for the whole thing, the container for the bar, and the bar itself.

Position the first element relatively, set its background image to the exp bar background, and set its width to the image's dimensions. Position the second element absolutely and give it the exp bar's image dimensions and appropriate left and top offset. Set the third element's background image to the exp bar, set its height to 100%, and set the width to the percentage of exp.

This CSS replaces all of the images in the table's border with ones that have proper transparency.

There's an alternative that takes advantage of the multiply blend mode since the images' backgrounds are white, but it's also got less browser support.

Uploading pictures onsite on a script filled page? on 4/13/2018 9:37:28 PM

Well, img is the HTML standard, so I'd suggest you use that everywhere. I don't know anything about support for using image instead.

Uploading pictures onsite on a script filled page? on 4/13/2018 9:07:15 PM

Just go to My Stuff > Pictures and right click the image/do the equivalent of "copy link location". Also, the tag should be "img", not "image".

Story length is already set automatically and the algorithm—the specifics of which I believe are shrouded in secrecy—takes into account more than just word count.

Way to limit the max height that text can scroll? on 4/6/2018 8:19:23 PM

Hmm. Well, it's supposed to look like this, except the offset is 400px in this GIF. Might have to play around with that value until you get the positioning you want?

Also, the content of the body::before is supposed to be a single space. Due to the way befores are processed, they won't show at all unless there's something in the content property.

Edit: Actually, since you put it directly on the page instead of the page script, make sure you get rid of all newlines (because the editor replaces them all with br tags which would mess with stuff like CSS); I think I can see a stray one in there. Try that, or moving it to the page script.
