another one-liner thread

Postby EdB » Thu Feb 18, 2010 5:13 am

This time for your place in the contributors.php file.
Code: Select all
      'yabs' => array(
         'name' => 'Yabs',
         'homepage' => 'http://innervisions.org.uk/',
         'locale' => 'en-UK',
         'spiel' => '<p>Blonde Bimbo who plays with flowers</p>'
      ),

Looks like 4 fields to me, with the 'name' being used as the first thing only lower case. Anyway name should be obvious, homepage should be whatever URL you have that you want pushed in the linkblogs of users, the locale should be fairly obvious, and then there's the spiel. I propose that we limit the 'spiel' to 255 displayed characters. That way if you want to use non-english characters you aren't count-hit for each character in the entity encoded thing string.

255 is a lot of characters.

Anyway we apparently have some time before v0 sees daylight so we should start with a reply here in a code block. I guess right before v0 gets shipped we could bump this for one last "edit or create your post". Oh and I would propose the default spiel be "I have nothing to say".

Code: Select all
      'edb' => array(
         'name' => 'EdB',
         'homepage' => 'http://1912webworks.com/',
         'locale' => 'en-US',
         'spiel' => '<p>If you want to contribute something but don't know how let me know and I\'ll help you out.  Drive-by contributors shouldn\'t have to jump through hoops is what I mean.</p>'
      ),

Notepad++ tells me that is 165 characters plus 2 \s for the 's plus the P tags. Yay me. That is my rather lame business web which might be lame but who doesn't want to turn a buck/euro/yen/whatever if they can?

BTW 1912webworks is currently b2evo-powered. It'll go to QP when we have a reasonably stable platform. First time I used the core without a blog or post or any of the normal stuff. Kinda neat. Ditch templates and plugins and I think widgets and locales, and I get stats tracking behind what might as well have been good old html.

Sorry, what do you mean?

Like the way Yabs had his name on the other forum. It took 4 actual characters (or 5) to make each displayed character.

Bump ..

I forgot about 255 (displayed) char limit, and "I have nothing to say!" [ T_() ? ] ... the dracones branch is gonna go into shock with all these recent updates :P

I never change the subject when I reply

I should maybe consider that from time to time. Anyway if you're branching can/will you change me from whatever to
Code: Select all
      'edb' => array(
         'name' => 'EdB',
         'homepage' => 'http://wonderwinds.com/',
         'locale' => 'en-US',
         'spiel' => 'Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts - <em>AE</em>'
      ),
?
