Discofont hijinks



  • HTF do you set the font in Dicksores markup? This really need to be in a monospace typewriter font to make the joke work best, and I can't find the DiscoMentation for jack shit.



  • Easiest is to use triple backticks: ``` on the preceding and succeeding lines (like posting code).



  • Thanks. That was close to what I wanted, but not quite. I was able to get it as I wanted using the <pre> tag, but that still leaves the question of how you would style the text with an arbitrary font and size. I've tried <span> and <div> tags with CSS styling, the BBcode [font] tag, and a few other things, but no dice so far.

    <small> tags work, sort of. I think that's about the extent of the control that you have.



  • Damn, that's so... Discourse.



  • [size=3][ size=3 ] is deemed too small [ /size ][/size]

    [size=4]But size=4 is considered perfectly readable, apparently[/size]

    [size=14][ size=14 ] is about normal size [ /size ][/size]

    I would like this [size=16]size=16 text to be on its own line[/size] but Discourse adds line breaks.

    [size=32]This text is surrounded by [⁠size=32][⁠/size] markup [/size]

    [size=40]size=40 is as big as you can get. Note that if I were to write a longer text — long enough to wrap into another line — text becomes overlapped because the line spacing isn't big enough compared to the size of the letters. This makes the text somewhat harder to read[/size]

    [size=41][ size=41 ] is too big :giggity:[ /size ][/size]



  • My apologies to the thread owner for my previous post.

    I forgot to check if it was yours before posting.



  • You could just not post that bullshit in ANY threads. Just a thought.

    it would be a very quiet forum if noone posted bullshit.

    By my estimation 99.9% of this forum is one of:

    • bullshit
    • discussion about bullshit
    • complaining about bullshit
    • discussions about complaining about bullshit
    • complaining about discussions about bullshit

    or more formally:

    bullshit ::= 'bullshit'
    complaint ::= 'complaint about' [ bullshit | discussion | complaint ]
    discussion ::= 'discussion about' [ bullshit | discussion | complaint ]
    Discourse ::= bullshit | discussion | complaint
    


  • I don't really understand why it bothers you, you just have to scroll past it.

    ...oh

    I understand



  • You left out the complaints about complaints about other complaints. Which, now that I think about it, may indeed be covered by your third bullet point.


  • sockdevs

    well generally the initial complaint in that chain is either bullshit or about bullshit, so yes the BNF covers that.
