Re: My Wallpaper

Here's the magic incantation.  Thought this early description of how amprolla works might be an interesting example:

[img=image-description]url-to-image[/img]

amprolla

Or if you want a thumbnail

[url=url-to-full-image][img=image-description]url-to-thumbnail[/img][/url]

amprolla

@golinux:  Thank you but I can be quite thick sometimes.  What's the url to a .png image in a folder on my computer?

You'll have to post it online somewhere if you don't have access to a server.

OK thanks.  Let me see if I can share a note in Evernote or Zoho Notebook.

Re: My Wallpaper

This is a wallpaper I made for Devuan with Enlightenment22 DE/Window Manager.  As you can see, I'm not a graphic designer but it works for me on my system.

The Devuan script logo is from the site; the E22 design logo came from wikipedia where it was shiny black - I recoloured it to be sort of close to the blue colour of the default E22 theme.  Then I used a few basic, simple GIMP tools.

Ignore the panel at the top.  I made this on a laptop running Manjaro because that's where I have GIMP installed at the moment.

Wonderful.  Evernote just went live with beta of an updated web app.  Maybe that's the problem, although it does have a toggle to test the web address it generates in response to the <share> command and that worked for me.  I'll mess with it tomorrow and then edit my post, either to post a revised, working url or to advise that I can't link to the background in question.

Re: My Wallpaper

I think you're using the url tag back-to-front; it takes the actual url in the begin tag, and the description between the tags. So if you swap those, it becomes a click-accessible url. As is, one has to copy that url that is seen and paste to follow, rather than clicking it.

I double checked and I did have it listed as specified in tne <url> help section.  However, I deleted the description between the tags and the link now works.
