Better Literature Display - limited width by neurotype Better Literature Display - limited width by neurotype
:iconexplosionplz: WARNING - this will limit the max width of text created in Stash to 800px...which will affect all journals, too.

Available for Firefox and Chrome.

Dark version - [link] -> thanks `satvika for suggesting a better title color!
Light version - [link]

This has been bothering me since they revamped it, and I have to thank *iceofwolf for actually prompting me to do something about it. Also thanks *raspil for noticing some other issues :lol:

oh damn that would be so much nicer to look at. yeah. the pages of a book don't typically stretch out to infinity on a horizontal plane. short burstz of prose, the shape the paragraphs form, the way this site spits them out, have always irked me, slightly. kool.

it's fixed up the margins, but didn't change the background. which isn't a big deal, the light background never bothered me, but the black, would look sweet. and. yeah. no change, there.

The header color was almost invisible with the background I chose and I wanted something less blah than white. :P

Shouldn't this issue be reported to dA? I mean, it's ludicrous to have to read 1900px wide sentences. I believe most optimal is around 500px actually but I guess it also depends on the length.

I suggested it a while ago, and actually there's a way to limit it now (might be beta testing only), though it's not as narrow as I would like :la:

I agree with *MartinSilvertant. The optimal number of per line is about 65, and 500px does a decent job of wrapping about that many characters. I'd get pretty tired of reading just long lines. [link]

It still seems incredibly wide. On my monitor it's 1280px wide and I don't know if it stretches beyond that on a bigger monitor.

Looks like it only effects the words and not the white background now.

Hm?

If it's submitted via Stash, the background won't go dark.

No, I mean the width of the background stays the same but the width of the text is effected.

I know, I didn't want to adjust that for the stash ones because it completely ruins some skins :B It should limit the background width on non-stash submissions, though.

I commented on several #hq and #devBUG journal entries, how full width text deviations (lit and the default journal skin) are design-wise horrible when not being used with a max-width. The longer the text flows the harder it is for the user to read without getting a headache. But well, I guess they don't really consider it an issue :shrug:

Okay, I could technically make it work across the board...but it makes journal skins less pretty.
