    Ariana mentioned in the Supergod #5 thread that "selected text colors are a user-end setting." I can't seem to find where that setting is. It's not one of the three settings under forum preferences in My Account, so I'm not sure where it would be.

    The color (most) browsers use to highlight text is taken from your system settings (at least in Windows), in the advanced appearance section of your properties.

    Not seeing it in Mac OS or on iPad at the moment.

    @Ariana for what it's worth the use of "system colors" is deprecated in CSS3 (and a fix is presumably to alter the site's CSS to specify a more explicit color but see also here).

    @stsparky on OSX using e.g. Safari, I think you can use "System Preferences / Appearances / Highlight" to specify the background color of highlighted text. Unlike Windows it seems to let you control/alter the background color but not the foregound color: so whereas on Windows, text is black-on-white when not selected and white-on-dark-blue when selected, on the Mac it's e.g. black-on-white when not selected and black-on-light-blue when selected.

    Yes, for some reason I thought it be a setting in the browser --

    If you want to change it in the browser, you can do like Safari "Preferences / Advanced / Style sheet" and then pick a stylesheet (a CSS file) which you'd create yourself, which follows CSS syntax rules and which might contain for example ...

    ::selection { background:red !important; color:white !important; }
    ::-moz-selection { background:red !important; color:white !important; }
    ::-webkit-selection { background:red !important; color:white !important; }

    ... to override whatever stylesheet is specified on the site, or actually on every site.

    But that's changing your browser's settings, rather than using your browser to change Whitechapel forum settings.

    This may have been answered somewhere upthread, but is there a thread/part of site dedicated to showcasing user's work?

    We have an Artist's Thread every month. No official "showcase" as it were.

    Oh god, we just finished an election can we please give it at least until June? I mean, concentrating that much stupid into one place could be considered an act of war in most civilized countries.

    RSS feeds and searches:

    Is it possible (or may be in the future) to search inside comments for file links or media content? I notice you can get an RSS feed of a search, and in theory I'd like to roll a feed that only shows posts with linked or embedded content (MP3,FLV) and throw that at my media player. If there's already a filetype search keyword or to search inside links, I've missed it.

    @Finagle, you *should* be able to search for file extensions (.mp3) or urls.

    I took a quick look through the Advanced Searching section of the docs, and playing around with variations on *.mp3 and the like so far are only turning up plaintext in posts, nothing in a URL tag. Is there a special syntax for it?

    ETA: I think the signal ratio is just too high; too many people actually use MP3 in their posts as a word. I did try searching on "href mp3" to force it to find a tag and got better results, but it doesn't look like it will accept a wildcard like "*.mp3" or a regexp. Will keep at it, thanks for the help.

    Um...every time I click on a page here Chrome automatically downloads a file called "cb_render.php"
    Am concerned.

    I think the server is just very slow. Ariana's asleep right now, but I'll get her to test some things when she wakes up.

    hey warren
    was wondering if you had any objections to the opening of a mixcloud thread.
    as there's already a couple of music threads i thought it best to check first.
  5.  (4.459)
    Go ahead. BUT, the forum software won't allow the embedding of the Mixcloud player, I'm pretty sure.
  6.  (4.460)
    no it doesn't but it'll be good to know of other users and the mixes they're making.
    cheers.
