Using modals on this site.

I found the modals a fab way of keeping pages tidy and when writing about DnD games they allow me to hide the hints. i found some examples, and created a page with three modals, which now seem to only display the 3rd. I would like to fix that as I think I will/might use the technique to hide the motions in “Energy, Climate Change and Just Transition”. Anyway, here are my notes and links Continue reading “Using modals on this site.”

Dynamic Styles in HTML

I was working with Stylish and came across and article that <DIV> tags should be avoided. Stylish uses IDs and CLASSes to change the look & feel Why avoid these elements? A second thought is how can one use buttons to change the look and feel of a page by applying different styles? Do you still need javascript? Here are my notes … Continue reading “Dynamic Styles in HTML”

Another reason for having a look at these. Here are my notes. Continue reading “Static page web sites”

This page collects the notes I made in learning about Python’s support for unicode/ascii translations. Continue reading “Unicode in Python”

Rendering New Age Video

While winding myself up to play NWN2, I started experimenting with image morphing software, to see if I could make a video of a Druid Shifter polymorphing into their werebear shape. Sadly I think I lost the pictures from the 1st attempt and so as I started the game I had another go. Anyway once created, there is the question of how to serve it on the web. This article documents the tools I used to create the video and the tools I used to host it on this page. Continue reading “Rendering New Age Video”

Pop Up Meerkats

For various reasons I wanted to make a pop-up on hover using a picture. I have implemented a pop up meerkat in the blog. This broke at some point and I returned to the problem in 2019 and found a new guide, and again in 2020 where I fixed some theme/wordpress bugs. This is now working, here are my notes in which I document the CSS and HTML … Continue reading “Pop Up Meerkats”
