I was part of both subscriptions, I think I can count on one hand how many times it was used :'(
I'm not sure how many times I used it, but I'm pretty sure it was all within the first month of the first time

Yeah. But there's no telling what will happen when she becomes an octogenerian.
By that point you'll need to visit a museum if you want to see cash.

Gonna need @BAHayman or @whYME to figure out where to stick that.

Hmmm, I seem to have found a bug with this plugin. Apparently when there's more than 1 member mentioned the subject line of the 1st member's email overwrites the subject line of the relevant post

Thanks, that was a great read! So by "non-static" you refer to  absolute, relative, or fixed?
Yes

I think that's a little over my head :) what does non-static position mean?
I was going to try and explain it but I figure why re-invent the wheel?
From a quick glance here it seems this is a good explanation:

Aha! I just didn't realize that
Code: [Select]
.subject.windowbg2 div would work the same as
Code: [Select]
.subject.windowbg2 since you're not referring to the same element.
It's not exactly the same, it's a few pixels off.
An absolutely positioned element is positioned based on its closest ancestor with a non-static position.

I finally chapped JJ's "1000". :)
I had the same reaction when she first posted way back when.

I don't totally follow
Basically, CSS works right to left. It starts with the rightmost part of the rule and works its way back
So for
Code: [Select]
.subject.windowbg2 divwhich basically says "a div which is a descendant of an element with the classes subject and windowbg2," every time it encounters a div it looks all the way up the DOM to see if it has an ancestor with those classes. Adding the ">" tells it to look at the direct parent only.


One change to make it work for stickied posts
Code: [Select]
.subject.windowbg2, .subject.stickybg2 {
    position: relative;
    padding-left: 50px;
}

Code: [Select]
.subject.windowbg2 div{
    position: relative;
    padding-left: 50px;
}

a[id^="newicon"] img {
   height:14px;
}

I would do this a bit different.

.subject.windowbg2 { .... }
instead of
.subject.windowbg2 div { ...}

and
a[id^="newicon"] > img { .... }
instead of
a[id^="newicon"] img { ...}

With modern browsers it shouldn't make any real difference but this is more efficient.
The way you have it, for each img and div on the page it would go all the way up the DOM looking for a .subject.windowbg2 or a[id^="newicon"] ancestor. (and each page here has like 6000 imgs) This way the extraneous div is removed and the img only looks one level up.

Can you post your CSS so I can try it out?

I don't remember exactly but it was something like this. (I don't remember the values I used and I'm too lazy to look up the actual element ids/classes)
Code: [Select]
linkContainer {
    position: relative;
    padding-left: 50px;
}
link {
    position: absolute;
    left: 6px;
    top: 10px;
}

I like yours better!
Me too :)
Although I do like your idea of making the link a little bigger

I would hate that. Makes it difficult to see which thread you're clicking on.
Is something like this better?



ETA: I see @etech0 beat me to it...

Are there any unofficial restrictions for lubavitch?
Well there is something to not showering after the mikvah, but as far as a blanket ban on soap? that's just ridiculous.
(At least for Americans, I think there is actually a ban for the French and Israelis :)) )
