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?

The only other things I can think of is if you want to test a piece of code with a little less delay or share a snippet of code with people without having to create a dummy storygame.

Cabata's Quest (Sample) on 5/12/2018 6:35:16 PM

It's this message. There's an extra /div end tag and less importantly it's also wrapped in a redundant div class="body".

Please do not do this. Barring the deprecation of font tags, leaving a tag unclosed like that is very invalid HTML and the result you're getting is due to web browsers' fault tolerance. It "works" because the unclosed font tag ends up encapsulating everything beneath it as per typical browser behavior while the intermittent, closed font tags override its styles temporarily.

If you wanted a similar effect, you could use CSS to apply a color or font to the ".dark1border + div" selector (the area of the page that contains the page text, links, and inventory).

A li element is a list item. In HTML you define a ul or ol (a bulleted or numbered list) and then have several li elements inside of it. You might use "li {color: red;}" if you wanted all the bullets to be red, and since the links inside have their own color, they won't inherit the red.

Removing Bullet Points from Deleted Links on 5/7/2018 6:48:41 PM

The bullet points of list items inherit the color of their parent; i.e. by default they're the color of the surrounding text. You can explicitly define the color using the CSS "color" property on the li element.

I'm replying to the main post because @Fluxion you have an unclosed strong tag and I don't want to edit lock you.

Are global item effects possible? on 5/6/2018 11:14:37 PM

You might have an unclosed bold tag somewhere or it’s being bolded by some more general CSS selector. You can always slap a "font-weight: normal" in its CSS to force it not to be bold.

Are global item effects possible? on 5/6/2018 6:56:02 AM

Just like every page has an ID, every link you create in the editor has an ID. Now, for example the function PostBack('FollowLink', '5'), of course refers to the link with the ID of 5, but all it does it direct the site to follow that specific link; where it leads is dependent on the link itself. If you remove the "real" link, then there's no defined destination and you'll get an error if you try to access it with a copied "FollowLink".

I'm saying you need the link, but it's possible to hide it. You could create a variable that's always zero and then put a link restriction that hides the link unless it isn't zero (or any similarly impossible condition), or you could place the link on a page that the player will never be able to access. As long as the link "exists" on a page somewhere.

Don't delete the original link. Think of the links injected into every page via the global page script as references to that one. You can hide it with an impossible link restriction, you can put it on an inaccessible page, but don't delete it or none of them will work.

Anyway to change "My Inventory" color? on 5/6/2018 5:58:09 AM

That's the start of it, but that's just making the table and all of its contents invisible. Fortunately, the way visibility works, you're able to specify elements inside a hidden element to be visible again. This CSS hides and unhides elements to make this:

table, table table tr:nth-child(3) td:nth-child(2) {
  visibility: hidden;

table table tr td {
  visibility: visible;

Anyway to change "My Inventory" color? on 5/6/2018 5:25:07 AM

The border is a bunch of images in the edgemost cells of the inventory table. You can't reliably change the actual images with CSS, but you can load secondary images as background content and push the originals out of view (which is what this does using versions with transparent backgrounds). You could use an actual CSS border on the inventory table, too, but you'd still need to hide the original border images.

Transparent hex codes aren't fully supported, but there are other options, including the keyword "transparent" for full transparency and rgba colors (like "rgba(255, 127, 127, .5)") for intermediate values.
