Is this on every story? Iíve just checked and it is working fine for me. What device are you using? Phone/Tablet/Desktop?

Has anyone else had this issue?

Site Suggestions / Can't get past first part of story
« Last post by DickDom on June 10, 2019, 05:04:54 pm »
Hey all.

When I click into a story that has multiple parts I can't get past the first part whether I press next or a number it just goes back up to the top of part 1

Announcements / Story Images
« Last post by painslutlois on May 17, 2019, 11:55:46 am »
We have just added the ability to embed images in your stories. This is a much requested feature but has been on the back burner because of various issues surround hosting images.
  • They are large and would be costly to host
  • We would have to moderate what images were uploaded
  • It could affect site performance if inappropriately large images are added
  • It could make the stories look a mess
The only solution we could come up with on this is to use an image hosting service, this is because:
  • Any images uploaded will need to meet their T&Cs
  • They will be able to serve the images up much faster than our servers could
  • We don't need to handle managing the image files, adding, deleting, editing etc
So this is the way, for the moment, that adding images to stories will work:
  • Go to http://www.imgur.com, create an account and/or log in
  • Click on your name in the top right and click "Images"
  • Click on "Add Image"
  • Once your image is uploaded click on it and the click the "Copy" button next to "Direct Link"
  • Back on thefetlibrary.com go and create/edit your story
  • In the editor click on the image icon and enter the url you have copied (urls for sites other than imgur will be ignored)
  • Click "OK" and image will appear where your cursor was in the editor
For this first pass at this functionality you will only be able to add inline images with no formatting, size changing etc and the image will be forced to the width of the story area. I would advise using images that fill that width (this is a maximum of 1140px, they will be shrunk to fit smaller devices) and adding them either at the top of the story part or on a new line if they are in the middle of text as this will look best.

This is a trial of the functionality, if I feel people are adding overly inappropriate images, it is affecting site performance or caused unforeseen issues I may remove it again.

p.s. Please feel free to post in the Site Suggestions forum about this and I will respond to any queries.

I think this is now resolved and you should be able to work as you'd expect rather than any of the workarounds you have suggested. Please let me know either way.
Thanks

Also, if you register and log in then the system will save your position on last story you were reading and offer you the opportunity to jump back to it the next time you log in.

Hi, thanks for the message. With regard to the square icons replacing punctuation this is likely caused by the author pasting in none standard characters which are not recognised by the HTML editor. There is nothing I can do about this unfortunately, it is up to the author to ensure their works are formatted correctly.

With regard to adding the ability to jump to a specific part of a multi-part story that is a great idea and has been added now.

Lo xx

Thank you for the update, obviously this isn't resolved and I will continue to try and fix it. I'll keep you updated here.

Site Suggestions / Charset issues in Tammy and Gwynn, chapters 7 and 3

Some symbols like quotes and apostrophes show up as boxes in chapters 7 and 3 (less in 3) of Annie the Slick's Tammy and Gwynn.

Also, could you add a dropdown to navigate directly to chapters by number? If you've already read the story and a new chapter is added, navigating to the new one is cumbersome unless you edit the url directly.

Good site, good stories, thanks!

Happened again!

This time I saved as a draft but did not publish the story. I later opened it under 'edit content' and added a further chapter. I then published it going through the usual sequences.

I have now deleted it and reposted. For the repost I put it all together as a single document in LibreOffice (which I always use) and pasted it in as a single document. I then immediately published and it has worked.

....??

I guess i will avoid editing anything after I have pasted it from now on. I notice it happened with the Doe story (if I have the right one) last week which has been posted okay this week.
