Logo 'next to' VideoLAN links.


While looking around the wiki, I noticed the little icon that has been put in to be next to links. While this works for me in Firefox 3.5b4, for some reason, in my main browser (Safari 4 Public Beta) and in Chrome ( the icons appear beneath the link, obscuring the text and the icons are missing entirely in Internet Explorer 7 (haven't checked IE8, I don't really use Windows much) and Konqueror 4...

If it's of any use, here is the code that MediaWiki 1.11 seems to use to show icons next to external links:

#bodyContent a.external, #bodyContent a[href^="gopher://"] {
    background:transparent url( no-repeat scroll right center;

so perhaps you could simply override that with ''

One problem could be that the 'ico' format is not brilliant for inline images and a png would be more suitable... Yours is currently: MS Windows icon resource - 2 icons, 32x32, 256-colors

Altogether, I hope this helps sort out these little icons (or we could just remove them :P)

Welcome templates

Hi 'The thing' - it might be better IMO to wait until the user has made at least one contribution, since a lot of the new users are probably spambots (username patterns are weird too).

BTW which developer, if any, are you on vlc-devel or IRC?

yeah, honestly I thought the same thing about the welcoming. I was mst likely done with that anyway. As for the developing, I am not a developer. The thing (TalkContribs) 22:21, 22 February 2012 (CET)
