a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Zoho Not working in firefox. 5 years and 1 month ago
Well, while I was messing around with the stuff in this topic, realizing that Zoho seems to accept direct html, I just placed the following in my signature:

  1.     <img src="http://path-to-my-images-server/image.png">

I was actually surprised that it worked!

Realizing how that worked, I figured that I could use bold text in my signature as follows:

  1.      <b>x-15a2</b>
All this being the case, I'd suggest keeping your signature "bling" to a minimum. Too much customization can be quite distracting.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Do we need a custom url? 5 years and 1 month ago
The primary reason is flexibility. It's pretty clear that the forums won't be hosted by Zoho forever and when the forums are moved to a new service (or are self-hosted) the URL doesn't have to change.

Also, brand identity and professionalism are important, and a long URL with the product name attached to the end doesn't convey the brand name or brand professionalism. Plus, as stated above, the shorter URL is easier to remember.

The cost of a "custom" URL is very small and I'm sure that Gabriel and his team (not "we") knew what they were doing when they decided to pay the small amount of money needed for a custom URL.

Try changing text colors, then hit the HTML button, you'll see the old (outdated RGB calls):
but the problem is most people don't know html so the average members not going to be able to do that-then isn't that what the text editor is for.
That wasn't meant to be a solution, just something for Zac to share with the Zoho folks.

Try changing text colors, then hit the HTML button, you'll see the old (outdated RGB calls):

This is supposed to be green

This is supposed to be red

This is supposed

Here's the code from the above:

  1. <font color="rgb(127, 255, 0)">
       <font color="rgb(34, 139, 34)">
          This is supposed to be green
          <br />
          <font color="rgb(34, 139, 34)">
             <br />
             <font color="rgb(34, 139, 34)">
                This is supposed to be red
                   <br />
                   <br />
                   <font color="rgb(34, 139, 34)">
                      Thi
                      <font color="rgb(34, 139, 34)">
                         s is supposed to be purple
                         </font>
                      </font>
                   </font>
                   <br />
                </font>
             </font>
          </font>
          <br />

See all those "<font color="rgb(xxx, xxx, xxx)"> calls? Those are antiquated and don't work with compliant browsers.

Yeh, I've been meaning to mention this, never floated to the top...

Zoho is using an obsolete and long ago deprecated HTML tag <font color="rgb(255, 0, 0)"> .
Also, Zoho is using the rgb() notation which isn't defined for the attribute of this tag! (it should use #FF0000 instead).

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling what is the best way to keep up with new !bangs? 5 years and 1 month ago
I really like Casper's idea of an RSS feed. Given the number of Bangs, maybe a wiki would be in order (WikiBang.org ? ).

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DuckDuckGo W3C invalid 5 years and 1 month ago
Interesting post and it made me curious...

I tested a few other sites too, including Mozilla, Y! Search, some major online retailers, etc. The only one that I found with 0 errors was w3c.org. While some cleanup may be in order, none of the identified errors appear to be critical or detrimental to the function of ddg's search.
