This should probably be moved into either HRWiki: or Help:, probably the latter. It certainly doesn't have anthing directly to do with Homestar Runner... --phlip TC 16:34, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

3 digit revision

They're all black now... ? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:02, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

That's why I changed it back. --Jay (Talk) 20:03, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
I'm curious, what brower are you using? -- Tom 20:03, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
The evil that is IE. --Jay (Talk) 20:05, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
Opera, latest version. I just looked w/ Firefox, it seems to only work there. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:05, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
Yup, I'll second the IE problems. No biggie for me though, I always use Firefox. :P Thunderbird 20:11, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

I can understand IE not getting it, but Opera? That's as standards-compliand as you're likely to find, generally, and I know I have used 3-digit colors successfully before. I suspect it's actually a problem in the way the colors are being processed by the Wiki itself... Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:15, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
#ff0   #ff3   #ff6   #ff9   #ffc   #fff  
Just to confirm, all six of the above appear as black? (The thing: "Me too" what? That the colors appear as all black, or that you always use Firefox?) -- Tom 20:18, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Wait, I think I has the solution!

The 3 digit is CSS only. You're using the bgcolor HTML attribute. That requires 6 digits. Firefox is being extra lenient in allowing it to work against standards.Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:22, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Experiment: CSS Red 3-digit HTML Red 3-digit 1 should work all the time in all modern graphic browsers, 2 will work only in FF. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:28, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
Indeed. Again in IE, first one works; second doesn't. --Jay (Talk) 22:08, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
Understood. How's this then?

It's simple, you just have to be a little more patient when writing on talk pages. Oh, and make each successive letter a lighter color. --Jay


I am trying to change the colour of the background on one of my userboxes, but every time i try to update it goes back to the colour it was before. I think I might be doing it wrong so can someone please explain?
