Halp :( [solved, hurrah!]
« on: April 21, 2015, 01:27:26 PM »
My mouse messed up (sometimes the left click and scroll stick really bad), and I was trying to scroll down the page of a really neat interest check, and now the display is all weird. :(

This is the thread where it is happening, screenshot provided to show what's up:


How can I put this back to displaying normally? There's a big strange off-blue highlight box now, and I don't want it there. ;_;

Also, it looks like other people can see it too.

Erm, I may have accidentally done that, then. I have no clue how to fix it or even exactly what I did to get it that way.

Erm, need more info. Is it like that every other post?

Does ctrl+0 help at all?

Does choosing a different subtheme help?

The highlight box begins at the post just after this one and continues down the entire page.

ctrl + 0 does not help.

I changed the theme to the rainbow, but it still has the highlight box. I tried Aysande's black and blue theme, and while it was improved visibly, it is obvious that the box is still there on the edges, so it's a problem regardless of theme.

The bizarre thing is that this thing is visible to other people, like me. I see this box, too... although it's only 2-3 inches long on my screen. Also, after the box, the whole page changes the colour theme to dark blue...

I looked at a few other interest check threads to be sure--that's the only one it's happening in.

*headdesk* How did I even do this, guh

If it helps any, I figured out that the box most likely has something to do with a redundant [/ list] command in the coding. Testing it in another thread, adding the extra [/ list] in the same location of code as the original post that caused it creates the box, and removing it takes the box away.

I... must admit my ignorance here. I have no clue at all how something like that could've happened.

Maybe you could contact the authors of the posts where the box seems to start and ask them to edit these posts? Maybe they'd be able to see something unusual in the posts' code...

The Hogwarts peeps are aware that I borked it all up and are tolerating me with good grace of what seems to have happened, although not sure if they can fix it. ^^

I don't think it's your fault at all. :) Plus, it isn't like we don't have it backed up if it has to be removed.

Yeah, I really don't think you can mess up a page's source code here on the forum by dragging a mouse over at your PC's screen. That could be something different...

    Yeah I don't think its your fault. It must have been that damn extra [/list] cause when Keldia deleted it the box disappeared.  :-)

    It's certainly a mismatched tag, but it overrode my initial attempts to fix it, so if someone wanted to take the time to comb through it, it would be appreciated. : )

    It ends in a [/ code] so I can't put the entire thing in [ code] tags but if you just quote, the post below should be the fixed version. =)

    The Wonderful World of Purebloods

    If you are taking on the task of creating a pureblood character then your character must have an extensive family background. This can be made much easier by connecting your character to already established pureblood family trees. You will find these trees below including their countries of origin and the writers that created them. We ask that you please PM the writers for permission before connecting your character to these family trees.

    If you would like to make a pureblood family tree of your own they must be from a country that has yet to be represented. You can check for the list below for reference.
