latin is love
(lingua latina amor est)
brought to you by the isLove Generator


Yes, I did add the translation in the second line myself: seemed kinda appropriate. Perhaps even nicer would have been 'latina lingua amoris est': 'Latin is the language of love'. :)

Unfortunately, though, the rather lovely purple 'rainbow' banner it generated for me doesn't display itself, and I haven't been able to see them when other people have done this meme either. I looked at the code and can't see a good reason for this: it works by creating a table of 6 cells, each containing a non-breaking space, and with the background colour in each cell set to a different shade of purple, which seems sensible to me, and did work on the isLove Generator page. Anyone know what's going on? Are my journal's colour settings over-riding it? Can anyone else see it, for that metter?

I can see it. And very pretty it is too :)

Actually, when I looked at your reply in my email account (Yahoo), I could see it too, where the email reproduced what it was that I had written and you were commenting on. So it must just be something about how the colours in my journal are set up, which is over-riding the code. I will assume that everyone else can see it, then!

I suspect it's a browser thing. I use Firefox/XP at work, and spent some time hitting refresh on people's "...is love" entries because I couldn't see the banner. When I read my friends' pages at home (Safari/OSX) there they all were, in all hues.

I don't think it is, because I can see it (with Firefox) on the 'Is Love' generator page, and also when I get notification emails in my Yahoo account from LJ, telling me people have commented on this post. Plus, when I go outside my journal and into other people's set-ups, again, I can see it. So it must be just something in the code which controls my journal's colours... which I have no idea as to the nature of, because it's just one of LJ's standard options.

That makes sense. I can see it in my Friends view, but not in your Journal view.

I figured as much. If I had any idea how, I'd fix this, but I don't, so I'll have to just let it go, I think!

Thanks so much for finding this fix! It is now displaying just as it should, in every context I have available to me for viewing it.

*sigh of satisfaction*

Further to this, I've now just popped into the creator's LJ (hackrabbit) to let him know about your fix, as I figured he would prefer to know that some people can't see / display the banners properly.

And further again, hackrabbit has now replied to say he's fixed the generator so that it inserts its own hashes now. So you can sit back and enjoy a warm glow from knowing you have Made People's Lives Better! ;)

It is fixed now. :) Thanks to you all for pointing it out. Had me puzzled for a long time as well and didn't even think of it to be something as simple as a hash. :D

That's great - glad you were able to sort it out!
