What this is

A bunch of miscellaneous CSS 'improvements' that I, CroquemboucheCroquembouche, use on a bunch of pages because I think it makes them easier to deal with.

The changes this component makes are bunch of really trivial modifications to ease the writing experience and to make documenting components/themes a bit easier (which I do a lot). It doesn't change anything about the page visually for the reader — the changes are for the writer.

I wouldn't expect translations of articles that use this component to also use this component, unless the translator likes it and would want to use it anyway.

This component probably won't conflict with other components or themes, and even if it does, it probably won't matter too much.


On any wiki:

[[include :scp-wiki:component:croqstyle]]

This component is designed to be used on other components. When using on another component, be sure to add this inside the component's [[iftags]] block, so that users of your component are not forced into also using Croqstyle.

Related components

Personal styling themes (which are visual overhauls):

CSS changes

Reasonably-sized footnotes

Stops footnotes from being a million miles wide, so that you can actually read them.

.hovertip { max-width: 400px; }

Monospace edit/code

Makes the edit textbox monospace, and also changes all monospace text to Fira Code, the obviously superior monospace font.

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Fira+Code:wght@400;700&display=swap');
:root { --mono-font: "Fira Code", Cousine, monospace; }
#edit-page-textarea, .code pre, .code p, .code, tt, .page-source { font-family: var(--mono-font); }
.code pre * { white-space: pre; }
.code *, .pre * { font-feature-settings: unset; }

Teletype backgrounds

Adds a light grey background to <tt> elements ({{text}}), so code snippets stand out more.

tt {
  background-color: var(--swatch-something-bhl-idk-will-fix-later, #f4f4f4);
  font-size: 85%;
  padding: 0.2em 0.4em;
  margin: 0;
  border-radius: 6px;

No more bigfaces

Stops big pictures from appearing when you hover over someone's avatar image, because they're stupid and really annoying and you can just click on them if you want to see the big version.

.avatar-hover { display: none !important; }

Breaky breaky

Any text inside a div with class nobreak has line-wrapping happen between every letter.

.nobreak { word-break: break-all; }

Code colours

Add my terminal's code colours as variables. Maybe I'll change this to a more common terminal theme like Monokai or something at some point, but for now it's just my personal theme, which is derived from Tomorrow Night Eighties.

Also, adding the .terminal class to a fake code block as [[div class="code terminal"]] gives it a sort of pseudo-terminal look with a dark background. Doesn't work with [[code]], because Wikidot inserts a bunch of syntax highlighting that you can't change yourself without a bunch of CSS. Use it for non-[[code]] code snippets only.

Quick tool to colourise a 'standard' Wikidot component usage example with the above vars: link

:root {
  --c-bg: #393939;
  --c-syntax: #e0e0e0;
  --c-comment: #999999;
  --c-error: #f2777a;
  --c-value: #f99157;
  --c-symbol: #ffcc66;
  --c-string: #99cc99;
  --c-operator: #66cccc;
  --c-builtin: #70a7df;
  --c-keyword: #cc99cc;
.terminal, .terminal > .code {
  color: var(--c-syntax);
  background: var(--c-bg);
  border: 0.4rem solid var(--c-comment);
  border-radius: 1rem;

Debug mode

Draw lines around anything inside .debug-mode. The colour of the lines is red but defers to CSS variable --debug-colour.

You can also add div.debug-info.over and div.debug-info.under inside an element to annotate the debug boxes — though you'll need to make sure to leave enough vertical space that the annotation doesn't overlap the thing above or below it.

…like this!

.debug-mode, .debug-mode *, .debug-mode *::before, .debug-mode *::after {
  outline: 1px solid var(--debug-colour, red);
  position: relative;
.debug-info {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  font-family: 'Fira Code', monospace;
  font-size: 1rem;
  white-space: nowrap;
.debug-info.over { top: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info.under { bottom: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info p { margin: 0; }

On the Subject Of the Kara


A drawing of the Kara I hate drawing myself. It's annoying and it takes 70 years.

What do Karas do? We’re very unsure.

We know that xe enjoys art, music, and occasionally fire. Possibly avian in nature? Though, xe has shown signs of being a cat, and a bird, also strangely a monkey? Its assumed xe is a harpy. Probably a shapeshifter as well. Contain at all costs. To never be contained.

The Personnel File

Hello Hello!

I’m Kara!

No, no. Sit down, and shut up. Leaving is illegal, and there will be lethal appropriate force taken to ensure you stay in this room.

So, about me…

  • My pronouns are xe/xer
    • I'm genderfluid, non-binary, pansexual, asexual, polyamorous, and over all just very very queer
  • I am in love with my fiancé Marceline_RaynesMarceline_Raynes
    • and I love our two beautiful baby boys
  • I really love Pokemon and Metroid (Prime is my absolute favorite)
  • I'm a music nerd
    • I play the bassoon (8 years), piano (13 years (no I'm not good)), and synth (4 years)
    • I'm going to college to get a bachelors in Audio Production and hopefully a masters (in the future) in Bassoon Performance
  • I like bullet lists
  • I'm a part of a mixed origins DID system
    • Yes, we are open to answering good faith questions
      • We will not answer questions about:
        • Our trauma (self explainitory)
        • Insensitive questions (we will, however, tell you that it's not nice to ask that if in good faith)
        • Questions about our little specifically (just don't be creepy)
          • general questions about how they are or what it's like is fine, but don't try to interact with them or ask creepy questions about them.
      • Generally, just use your best judgement on what to ask! Google is also a good recourse for research about DID as well since all systems are different.
  • I'm mostly a friendly face around :)
  • I'm a member of staff, and I was on staff for 2 years
    • I'm the best with licensing ;)

Idk, just interact with me on IRC and Discord or places like that lol

Katalina and Cal Tales
These were all written when Kara was dating Cal in the meatspace (real life). I say this in hopes it will give some context to the situation and stories.

Social Media


Its my friend and I right after Prelims BOA San Antonio 2019! (I’m on the right)

Honestly, that's it. I have nothing else to my name, EXCEPT FOR THESE COOL SOCIAL LINK-A-MEDIAS!

People I Love A LOT

“That's it?”

Don’t like it? Wait a month or five, there might be more! Or not, I don’t know…

In the time between, go read some of these wonderful peoples’ work! They're really cool and I've know them for a while and they're my friends :)

(those with ! in their names are my besties, we love them here)

Lt Flops
Doctor Fullham!

Wait, one more thing!

If life happens, and I decide to leave the site, I die, or I otherwise don't exist for 4 years, without anyone knowing about my whereabouts and having the ability to contact me, then I wish for Marceline_RaynesMarceline_Raynes to take ownership of all of my articles (aside from collaborations, which go to their co-authors), and all matters of deletion, porting and licensing are to be forwarded to him.

The Team Bird Art Page is a special case and should be handled by the Team Bird Team (notgullnotgull, Lt FlopsLt Flops, AyersAyers, and Quantum PhysicianQuantum Physician) They’re great people and I have trust in them (Maybe too much.)

That's it. Go home, you can not stay here!
