We periodically have problems with remote ad servers hanging up page loading on MetaFilter and we'd like to tweak the homepage layouts to make this impact much less of a problem. However, I'm not sure how it will impact the greasemonkey script deleted post type features because the code will change a bit on the home page. [more inside]

CSS Halp!

We're getting ready to launch that event site we talked about earlier, but could use some CSS help. [more inside]

Freedom! We're better than Myspace!

I added a new feature: Custom CSS for profile pages. You simply create a .css file on your own server, write whatever CSS you want, and it will load after all the mefi CSS when anyone views your user page. Here's mine (which loads this). Just plop in the URL of your custom CSS file on your server in your user prefs. Be sure to post here when you've got something cool to show. Let the ugliness/coolness begin!

I added more descriptive titles to metafilter

I added more descriptive titles to metafilter and ask mefi comment pages. Refresh your CSS to see them as they intended to look.

Have you seen CSS3 columns in Firefox 1.5 beta 1 yet?

Have you seen CSS3 columns in Firefox 1.5 beta 1 yet? Do you think they make ask mefi easier to read on huge monitors? Here's a avi demo movie of them in action.

Trying new CSS on Mefi

So I was checking out Eric Meyer's CSS book (the best of any CSS book I've read) this morning, and played around with some CSS I'd never used before. In just a matter of minutes, I had the cool CSS-only bar (there's not a lick of javascript being used for display or collapse, it's all CSS and server side logic) with the show/hide option working (I just add display:none; to the stylesheet if you collapse it).

I've been looking for a way to add more information, and keep people up to date on news and metatalk stuff, without overly complicating the interface. I added cookies to the position you prefer it in, and I currently only show it for IE 5+ on windows, IE 5+ on the mac, and Netscape 6+ on all platforms. You won't see anything in Opera or Netscape 4.x because they didn't seem to want to play right.

If you have any problems with it, let me know, especially if you're using a browser that's screwing things up.
