Jury duty popup partly blocked

I tried to post a screenshot, but it didn't work.

I'm running the old style (is that Skinner?) on Chrome on my laptop. The jury request popped up at the top, but it was almost entirely blocked at the top of my screen. I could see enough of the button to choose to serve, but I'm wondering if this is a bug that will cause me to miss other content. I have an ad blocker but it's permanently paused for DU.

Thanks!

4. This should only be a problem on the home page at the moment

The Jury Service notification should come up normally on all other pages, I just need to do some tweaking on the Skinner Mode home page. I should hopefully be able to fix this soon.

It might not be perfect but it should be better than before... let me know what happens next time you see it.

Skinner mode. iPhone six.

Also jury duty sign up boxes from vertical to horizontal.

No videos on home page.

Thanks.

5. The editorial cartoon issue should be fixed now

(Or rather, in a few minutes when the servers sync.)

The videos should be all the way at the bottom of the home page on mobile, below the Latest Breaking News section.

8. How about now?

The editorial cartoon is removed in the middle of the night so the home page is fresh for the next morning. I just posted a new one though -- is it working for you?

10. Yes! but right margin cuts off about 5 characters. Same as right margin in all post titles on home page.

Could you try something for me? Go to this link:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/du4css/du4.css

You'll should see a wall of code. Once the page has loaded, hit Refresh in your browser. Then go back to the home page and see if the pic is fitting. Let me know what happens.

16. Here's the refresh button on your phone's browser

It looks like a little circular arrow in the top right of your screen, to the right of the address bar, like this:



If you visit the link I gave above, then tap that icon, then visit the home page, I'm hopeful it might clear the issue.

18. I'm just digging out my old iPhone 6 to test this

I can't reproduce the problem on my iPhone 12 or by simulating an iPhone 6 in my browser. I'll take a look on my old phone and see how it appears.

If it looks normal then my guess is that you have an old DU file in your browser's cache which we need to clear out. I'll get back to you.

11. Also home page: individual forum post titles
Thu Nov 16, 2023, 12:53 PM

take all the line space. Post headlines are then very short, even only a few characters, so have to click open to find out the topic. Back n forth a lot.

Possible to put post headline under the forum title, making more line spacing for headline?

Thanks.

12. These things are all trade-offs

It would be technically possible to move the headline under the forum title in the Forum sections on the home page. However, that would double the height of all four boxes. I'll take a look at it though and see what I can do.

20. How's this for a compromise?

I've updated those links so they can now be scrolled horizontally -- if you want to read more of a thread title, you can swipe it to the left to see more text.

(I'll keep it this way for now unless someone tells me that it's broken something else, which is possible.)
