Is there anyway of unframing the embed code so it avoids vertical scroll bars on your blog when you get lots of comments beyond your selected height?
April 25, 2009
For example I have placed Bret's post about the new share button here:
but I've had to manually adjust the width and more importantly the height. I fear this is impossible but it would b nice to have it out of frame and no scroll bars when you get more and more comments and avoid the huge space at the bottom of you select to have a large height amount.
Shame, so basically we'e stuck with the frame. Perhaps if part of the comments are hidden in the 'x more comments' link that would be an interesting option? -
<Embed> is always explicit as to the width/ height (or length for text "tails") argument. Try amending it, set them to "" (nil), see it take over the entire page (depending on browser, btw). The proscribed way to do what you request would be to calculate how many lines of embedded stream at current (just-detected) font size will fit into the iframe (not "frame") box, then page the output with own-supplied "More" link at the end. Simple, innit? ;-(( -
Hehe, I need to lie down. Oh well, it's pretty good as is. Perhaps I could blog my favourite posts I've shared on FF as embedded versions. It's better than nothing which is what is happening on my blogs right now. ;-) -
Well, you could write a custom Wordpress add-in to do that for you. -
If only I could code. :-) -
Thought you worked in computer games, Kol?? -
I wasn't a programmer, I was a webmaster, admin, accounts, tester, network admin, mastering, etc. etc. No coding. -
Awwww :( -
since it is an iframe you can probably use some css to control the y-overflow or x-overflow property of the frame to remove the potential of scrolling.. it should be fairly trivial block scrolling from happening The problem of course, is that once the comments fill the space you won't see any comments you can't scroll too. -
Bill, you're thinking "static" reading. But what if user bumps up font size, you think your absolute overflow values will change? An iframe is an iframe is an iframe. Never used them, nor do I intend to, but perhaps they have a no-scrolling argument. But without additional intricate scripting it's bound to remain a kludge. -
