Ok, I think I've finished dressing up as Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. You can open your eyes now and pretend to like what I've done. Frankly I've been through more fonts in the past twenty-four hours than a priest on a christen-a-thon. But I think I'm happy with the results. In an ideal world, I'd have my comments opening in a new window as before, but that doesn't seem to be possible. And to be honest, managing to upgrade my template from HTML to XML without losing all the comments on 1,953 different blog posts is an achievement in itself. So I suppose I can't complain. Much.

As it happens, this place isn't the only one I've been redecorating recently. Lisa's Mum is in the process of moving into sheltered accommodation (which means it's guaranteed to have a roof), so Lisa and I have been busy making the place fit to live in. Not as busy as my parents though, who spent last week painting it from top to bottom. They're now so knackered, they need to go into a care home.

I went over there on Friday night to put up curtains and arrange the mats and towels I bought to match the new carpet we've had fitted. I also stocked the kitchen with utensils and tested the new toaster and kettle. We then took Lisa's Mum to view the place yesterday afternoon. She opened the kitchen cupboards, looked horrified, and said "Oh! They've left their old mugs!". I had to explain that I'd bought them for her especially. From her reaction, I think they'll be going in the bin on moving day.

But the good news is that she'll soon be able to afford all the new mugs she wants, because someone had put this card through her front door...

It's never too late to Train2Game.
This is a complex of more than a hundred sheltered flats for pensioners who need extra help and support, and Train2Game have delivered a card to every one of them, suggesting that the residents train to become video game designers. They're obviously taking 'Tomb Raider' quite literally.

Hmmm, was just looking at the odd non pop-up problem for your comments...

I took the standalone link code and tried that in a blank page, initially on ‘localhost’ and then on a server, and they both worked fine - indicating that it works as a standalone thingy…

Then, I wondered about the iFrame setup, but, along the way, noted the use of ‘JS Kit Comments’ for comment management. Around line 500 it says:

<style>.jskit-hidden, #comments{display: none;}</style>
<script>var JSKitComments = {'pageType': 'index', 'blogUrl': ''};</script>

which, not knowing the variables in this script, ‘looks’ to declare a load location of ‘’. Is there a setting to change that target location to ‘blank’ (like typical ‘a_href=“…” target=“blank”’) or  a new window, or, perhaps better, the styled comments page, etc?

Anyways, in the best of tradition of fixing something with a hammer, I tried removing the 3 lines of code and ‘Wallah’, it worked as expected (I removed the script first, but that left the CSS styling at ‘none’ i.e. not visible)!

Not really a fix as I have no idea of what that will do to JS Kit’s functionality, but, hey, a step in the right direction nonetheless…

Nice to see the blog upgrade and… looking forward to the badger premiere!

p.s. “Hello World”, sorry for bombing your comments with code jibber-jabber (feel free to delete comment)…

Phil said...

Oooh, thanks Captain. I'm glad I didn't delete your link from the sidebar now.  :-D

I shall investigate those suggestions tomorrow evening. It's too late to break my commenting system tonight.

Oh, and the badger will be making his debut tomorrow. You have my word.  8-)
