YouTube embed in Journals

26 August 2015 - 01:02 AM


The ways I used to embed YouTube videos in my journal no longer seem to work. [ media ] tag for example just shows the link now. I actually used to just post the link without formatting and it embedded it, but when that failed this time I searched the site and found the media tag mentioned and tried that, but the same.

Example is my latest Journal entry. Has something changed or am I being stupid?


Journal replies in My Content

08 January 2015 - 11:14 AM

I was just wondering how feasible it would be to have journal comments appear in My Content along with forum posts, bold when there are new replies?

I use My Content to keep track of threads I participate in, but unless I follow every journal I post in, I have no easy way to track conversations in there.

No biggie, just a thought. I'm trying to stay more active in the journals since they have gone kind of quiet compared to how they were on the old site and I thought this might help.

The Journals tab in there only seems to show my own journal, not those of others I have commented on. Perhaps I'm missing something obvious as usual :)

Preprocessor query

14 September 2014 - 03:50 AM

Anyone got any idea what I am doing wrong here? This is GCC.

#define test(a, b) int a ## b

void f()
    test(name, __LINE__);
This is creating a variable called "name__LINE__" rather than "name124" or whatever.

I'm trying ultimately to do something like:

#define lock_flag(a) flag_lock_object _temp##__COUNTER__(a)
But I can't seem to get the basics of expanding a macro within a macro working? All web research I've done suggests I'm doing it correctly so driving me a little nuts.


Ampersands in code tags

11 August 2014 - 05:36 AM

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm trying to upload an article and can't figure out how to use & characters inside code blocks? They are getting translated to & in the preview.

I tried using & in the article text which gets translated to &amp smile.png What sort of voodoo do I need to do to my ampersands in the source?

Thanks in advance.

Journals in mobile

Any idea why journals are unusable on mobile (iOS here)? The other areas of the site load like this then spring into a proper width but the journals stay like this.
