In the first ages, during the night before every feast, a vigil was kept. In the evening the faithful assembled in the place or church where the feast was to be celebrated and prepared themselves by prayers, readings from Holy Writ (now the Offices of Vespers and Matins), and sometimes also by hearing a sermon.
This is the icon/coding/&c. workshop of terra/latkje. The layout is a self-made edit of Five AM by winterfish. The artwork is A Dorcas meeting in the 6th century (1873-77), by Edwin Long. Fonts featured include Fira Sans, Playfair Display, and Charter.
The name “vigils” is a joke about staying up too late.
More and more people are using their phones and other mobile devices to access their journals, but dreamwidth doesn't support the most common method of making websites responsive: CSS media queries.
By default dreamwidth doesn't configure the viewport. This means that on most mobile devices, instead of displaying a full-size layout, what you see is a a shrunk down version of what you'd see on a desktop, which is often too tiny to navigate, even if your layout was designed to work well on mobile browsers. To change this behavior, you have to add a meta tag to the
<head> section of the code:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
Simple, right? The trouble is that to add this line of code to the
<head> section, we're gonna have to venture into the somewhat arcane S2 system.
So, I decided to let one of my old domains lapse in order to save money. The problem: this domain happened to host a lot of the images for my old DW layouts. As a result, a bunch of the images broke, since the URLS now redirect to nothing. The good news is this is a simple thing to fix.
I've updated all the entries on this journal, so you can just copy & paste the "new" versions of your layout.
Or you can fix the images manually by updating the URLs like so, by finding the spoonybard.org domain:
And replacing it with spoony.valiantknife.org, like so:
Sorry for the inconvenience!
