rdprice29 said:You have to copy them in the mobile format. But that’s just rude that they took it off the normal format. Damn. I need a butt-load of copy/pasting done soon before they change the mobile format too. :(
Ugh, me too! I just discovered this really long fic that I really want to transfer to my ipad too :( Someone said the copy-pasting still works on IE6, but… :P Maybe there’s a Chrome/Firefox extension out there that allows it…off to google, I guess!
we can’t copy-paste text now? really, ffnet?
You could use the page source to copy it, but you would need to know HTML or at least how to read it. Also, you could turn off the CSS.
IE6 forwhatever reason still allows it. so…surf…
they use css? css3, to look the exact same as they did 15 years ago? That is…actually kinda impressive. Ff.net…ff.net never changes.
CSS stays relatively the same, only getting additions to it. The specific piece of CSS that ff.net is using is in the working draft of the CSS 3 (the newest version of CSS). When I read what it was suppose to be, I realized that fanfiction.net is using it for something that it wasn’t intended to be for.
You mean CSS wasn’t intended to make a site look exactly the same as it did in 1999? I would have never guessed. I mean, I can do flasshing text, and rotating skulls and little WIP construction animatios with CSS, so of course, I can use it to keep a site looking identical to the era of geocities, and netscape 3.0!
Oh ffs. Really? How does ff.net manage to maintain its obscene shittiness to such a huge degree?
I wish more people used/read a03. It’s so much easier to post to and a much nicer interface to read. But comparatively just…dead.
Yeah, they only allow copy-pasting for the summary part at the top of the page, but not the actual fic, which SUCKS. Guess I’d have to try IE instead…
I tried right-clicking the page to select “inspect element” and removing the part of the html that says “no-copy”, but that only applies to the specific page, so if the fic has like 30+ chapters, you’d have to that for every single chapter.
Yeah, AO3 is definitely better in terms of interface, not to mention the quality of the fics. There are still some really good ones on ffnet, though; you just have to do some digging.
