    Which song are you currently listening to? (Part 2), Aug 22, 2017 at 5:36 AM

    OMG - this car with the suicide doors = #MustHave #SoWant
    Yeah - Dude definitely has that 'no victim here' vibe. I think it's why I can respect his aesthetic even though I'm not really a 'going gaga over Marilyn Manson' type fan. My 1st boyfriend was a metal head. It was a bit before Manson popped on the scene though - so I never really got into his music. But wow. The visuals he offers up are truly something else. I can definitely vibe to this, although - with the moshpits and all that stuff - IDK... I can see how folks get hurt loosing themselves in his music. Question is - I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing?...

    Ha! Kinda makes me wanna hear GNR



    What is it? Kinda like glamour vs. goth metal?!

    Some updates:

    We will be working with the UI.X style and customizing it a lot and it will be our default style. At the meantime we will be switching our default style currently to #rekt style by Theme House/Audentio.

    You could turn that Responsive but it either wouldn't be fully or it would take some nice amount of monies to make it so. Starting off with the theme and tweaking it to your needs would be my choice.

    And don't forget Google Chrome/Chromium and others have nice Development Tools to give you an idea how your page(s) will look in those devices. #VivalaDevTools

    What I'm talking about:

    Note the menu showing at Top left, you click that Icon to activate the device toolbar. As you can see at the very top, I have it on acting like an Apple iPhone 6 Plus but you can change it to others, add your own and even set to Responsive to just resize to your heart's content! :)

    So recently I've created a thread in the community promotion for my latest gaming community lag.one . With that being said we created a custom style from scratch and forgot the responsiveness :'(. Anywho... With that being said I'm not that strong in responsive design at this moment and was wondering what should I do in this case.

    I have the #rekt theme installed as a alternative theme which is currently responsive ready. I can switch that to the main theme as a temporarily situation.

    In the end while I got the custom non-responsive style and i want to make it responsive how much do you folks it would cost if i got a extra pair of hands to help me make it responsive?

    On the topic of this topic, here's something I saw very recently: I saw an admin take a thread off topic. Now how are the normal members supposed to keep to it if they cannot?! #setanexample

    You would create an HTML/PHP page to use as the Adsense passback URL with the code above in it.

    I was feeling generous so put together an example: :)
    HTML:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en">
    <head>
      <title>BESTOW ME A TITLE PLEASE</title>
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow,noarchive" />
    <script async='async' src='https://www.googletagservices.com/tag/js/gpt.js'></script>
    <script>
      var googletag = googletag || {};
      googletag.cmd = googletag.cmd || [];
    </script>
    
    <script>
      googletag.cmd.push(function() {
        var sizemapBANNER = googletag.sizeMapping().
            addSize([1024, 0], [728, 90]).
            addSize([320, 0], [300, 250]).
            build();
        googletag.defineSlot('/YOURDFPID/MySite_ATF_Banner', [[300, 250], [728, 90]], 'div-gpt-ad-RANDOMIDNUMBER-0').defineSizeMapping(sizemapBANNER).addService(googletag.pubads());
        googletag.pubads().enableSingleRequest(); // speedier delivery
        googletag.pubads().collapseEmptyDivs(); // if nothing to show collapse ad unit div
        googletag.enableServices();
      });
    </script>
    <style>
    .centre-of-attn {
        text-align: center;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <div class="centre-of-attn">
        <!-- /YOURDFPID/td-Site-House-Header -->
        <div id='div-gpt-ad-RANDOMIDNUMBER-0'>
        <script>
        googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-RANDOMIDNUMBER-0'); });
        </script>

    It can be and the above would have taken a while to find out for a newbie which is why I have detailed it as I have. I started out stupid too, after many years I am still stupid, but now I know some stuff.

    If I am understanding you correctly then it's the passback ads that are not playing nice responsively rather than the Adsense yeah? If the other Ad network doesn't allow you to use media queries or have a javascript function to do this then...

    In that case you could use Google DFP and its sizeMapping() function. How this would work is:
    • Create an Ad Unit
    • Create an order and call it the same as the Ad network
    • Create a Line Item and set its targeting to the new Ad unit you created above (Good idea to set it as 'Network' in this case)
    • Create 2 creatives with the passback networks code for each of the 728x90 and 300x250
    Generate your tags

    Now you can add the code from the link above to make DFP fill that adslot depending on the device resolution. Example:

    Code:
    HEAD CODE:
    <script async='async' src='https://www.googletagservices.com/tag/js/gpt.js'></script>
    <script>
      var googletag = googletag || {};
      googletag.cmd = googletag.cmd || [];
    </script>
    
    <script>
      googletag.cmd.push(function() {
        var sizemapBANNER = googletag.sizeMapping().
            addSize([1024, 0], [728, 90]).
            addSize([320, 0], [300, 250]).
            build();
        googletag.defineSlot('/YOURDFPID/MySite_ATF_Banner', [[300, 250], [728, 90]], 'div-gpt-ad-RANDOMIDNUMBER-0').defineSizeMapping(sizemapBANNER).addService(googletag.pubads());
        googletag.pubads().enableSingleRequest(); // speedier delivery
        googletag.pubads().collapseEmptyDivs(); // if nothing to show collapse ad unit div
        googletag.enableServices();
      });
    </script>
    Code:
    BODY CODE:
    <!-- /YOURDFPID/td-Site-House-Header -->
    <div id='div-gpt-ad-RANDOMIDNUMBER-0'>
    <script>
    googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-RANDOMIDNUMBER-0'); });
    </script>
    </div>
    Should probably mention what that does shouldn't I? :)

    The new sizeMapping( ) addition tells Google DFP to fill the ad unit specified with a 300x250 creative when the visiting device has a resolution of 320px+ but less than 1024px because then a 728x90 creative is used instead.

    Some notes:
    • You can name the BODY CODE ad unit div anything, you don't need to keep the generated version. Just be sure to change it in all locations (3 total)
    • You can define multiple creative sizes to choose from in the sizeMapping() by enclosing them in square brackets: ie; addSize[[300, 250], [300, 600], [336, 280]] - REMEMBER: you need creatives of this size for them to display
    • Don't forget to add .defineSizeMapping(YOURSIZEMAPVAR) to the googletag.defineSlot() otherwise the size mapping will not work!
      • googletag.defineSlot('/YOURDFPID/MySite_ATF_Banner', [[300, 250], [728, 90]], 'div-gpt-ad-RANDOMIDNUMBER-0').defineSizeMapping(sizemapBANNER).addService(googletag.pubads());
    • Remove the 'Maximise via Adsense' option to have the Ad unit act as a House ad and not have Adsense taking a second stab at taking the spot
      • If you do select this option, give your Line Item a Value CPM: this is the amount Adsense/AdX will have to match or beat in order to take the spot from your defined creatives
    I hope you find this helpful or it helps any random Googler/searcher who may be looking for the same sort of thing. :cool: #GoogleDFP #DFP #ResponsiveAds
  16. As if TAZ needs additional post ratings..., Aug 20, 2017 at 2:37 AM
  17. PoetJC

    I don't remember exactly - but it did contain a multitude of links.
    I *believe* it was a suggestion that NOTHING is safe from cyber attack and apparently was blowing the dog whistle of UGH! so that people could be aware.? IDK.... All I know is that I wanted to click the "WHOA!' rating and it was nowhere to be seen. The "Popcorn" rating could have sufficed - but would have been significantly insufficient. The "Drama Queen" rating could have been applied - but it was also - mysteriously nowhere to be seen. And I personally wanted to find it.

    A "WHOA! Wow." rating should always be seen, as a lot of stuff that not only comes out of folks' mouths, also finds itself splashed on to forum/FB/Twitter posts via busy fingertips. They are telling and in need of such a rating. Just ask the #PettyPOTUS - he knows about it. LOL

    OMG!!! That's some good stuff!! Charlie Wilson is one of my mom's faves.. And that tune is THE. JAM!!! "He about that FONK!" she would say while dancing around the kitchen. I'm like "Mama ... It's 8 o'clock in the morning dang - but what's for breakfast??" LOL.

    Ironically - I just downloaded the discography of Funkadelic and Parliament which was all the way the FONK with George Clinton. A couple of my faves that I'm listening to at the moment from "First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate" ==> Mathematics of Love ( #slowjam ) featuring Kim Burrell (she surprises with major aplomb = I'm like WHOA!!! And the pianist is just CRAZY!!) and Ain't That Funkin' Kinda Hard On You:

  22. Which song are you currently listening to? (Part 2), Aug 17, 2017 at 11:41 PM
  23. PoetJC

    Currently listening to what my Mama back in the day would call baby-making music. #SlowJam

    Keith Sweat is an R&B legend. Funny... Back in the day - I would actually get kinda mad when such music was turnt all the way up. I'd be studying in one room of our apartment - trying to perfect a piece on tuba or laid back chillin' with some Wagner, Lohengrin being one of my favorites anyway. The upstairs neighbor would have the music all the way up and my Mama would be playing records or tapes of her own. I absolutely hated it - some of it anyway. But now ... I have a bit of an affinity for the kinda sexy sounds of some good R&B - Kinda makes me wanna do so some stuff or ... someone LMAO

  26. Threads that ask you what you are listening to or what you are watching, Aug 16, 2017
  27. PoetJC

    Not bothered at all by the link dumping.

    In fact - had a couple rather interesting conversations with MarkFLMarkFL and we_are_borgwe_are_borg in regards to both symphonic metal (which I'd never even been aware of prior to the conversation) and classical (in particular low brass #YAYlowBrass) music in the thread that's filled with link/video dumps. It's nice to see and know what folks are listening to anyway. And I've gotten plenty of suggestions in regards to decent movies and TV shows in TAZ's whatcha watchin' threads over the years. If it get's folks talking and discussing stuff -- which is the whole entire purpose of discussion forums -- then it's all good IMO.

    Think it was LisaLisa who introduced me to the show SuperNatural. Now I'm in love with Sam and Dean View attachment 48672

  28. New XF customization | Whatcha think?, Aug 15, 2017
  29. PoetJC

    So I've been working on another XF theme customization. I like to use #PixelExit's Adara theme as a base of customization. It's such a bland slate that it's perfect for customization. And wow. I can't say enough about their #XenbaseFramework. Complete awesome. So anyway... A few screencaps:

    Thoughts?

    I'll appreciate suggestions regarding the overall color scheme, logo design, node icons, the footer layout, as well as the postbit styling. Constructive critique is very much valued.

    Thanks!

    The new XF smilies are quite slick though.
    Definitely an improvement from XF 1.x anyway...

  34. New Feed added, Aug 15, 2017
  35. PoetJC

    Ugh. I logged in after a couple days hiatus and thought WOW! WTF?! TAZ is super-busy and has gotten it's mojo back... Only to be slightly disappointed to see 100s of new #feeder threads with little-to-several views each -- depending on the article of course -- yet no responses. I'm not sure feeder is a great idea to get TAZ busy again, if indeed that's it's purpose, as well as providing information of course... At the end of 4 pages clicking the read button - I simply browsed through quickly to see other avatars that weren't feeder, read those threads and used the mark forums read link. Anyway...

    SoulwatcherSoulwatcher - Love you dude - but I have to say it was I that suggested the #hashtags ... So I hate that you hate the suggestion LOL. I thought it would get more use actually. It's just a way to see what members consider trending topics of discourse on TAZ, as well as a way to kinda bookmark content for TAZ public, without actually bookmarking content with the bookmarks functionality. I think it's a great idea anyway.

    Pretty kewl of you to make the really first 'member-official' TAZ blog and use it for it's actual intended purpose! :tup:
