new screenshots

Post by nikos » 2021 Feb 12, 12:22

Long overdue, I added new snapshots, which should open "lightbox" style

https://www.zabkat.com/sshots2.htm

it works ok for IE and Edge, can you try it out with Chrome/Firefox if you have that kind of browser?
thanks

Snapshots working fine here in Chrome browsers.

OT, I see in screenshot 10 there is a column displaying SVN status. Where is this column? (Couldn't find it in Column customizations.) And is there a column available for git status?

if you install TSVN then xplorer2 reads the old status columns. I am not sure if git has something similar, is it shell-friendly or just web?

The page works in Safari. What annoys me though is that there is no non-JavaScript fallback for the screenshots. Safely configured browsers cannot open the images easily. There seems to be no good reason for that.

if there's no JavaScript, images open as links, no? The downside is that you need to press BACK key to return to the screenshots
have you seen any website nowadays that works without JS?

Yes. Mine. :)
(Also, most blogs.)

The links point to #sshots, not to actual image files.

Ah, I see. Yeah, there's a Tortoise version of git, so installing that should make the columns available. Thanks!

if you check the source of the page, the links point to the image, and that's what loads when I try it in IE with JS disabled

I stand corrected. But then, the detailed thumbs (which are not clickable) make no sense in my opinion.

Example screenshot (opening said page in Emacs):

sshots2.htm:
The thumbnails are not clickable.

Makes perfect sense though, because the <a href> tag links to the #sshot anchor, not to the picture:

this is some screwup of your browser because the HTML I wrote is:

Code: Select all

<a HREF="new_snaps/mine.png" title="click for big picture">
<img src="new_snaps/mine_th.jpg" onclick="openModal();currentSlide(1)" >
</a>

I can confirm that with curl. In this case, I’ll report a bug to the browser vendor. :)

It's OK with Vivaldi and Firefox, on Windows 10.
