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.

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(';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; }

Department of Lactic Anomalies

Lactic Anomalies

A Taxonomical Approach

We divide Lactic Phenomena into two clades: Major and Minor.

Major Lactic Phenomena are phenomena in which milk is undeniably and incontrovertibly a central part of the anomaly in question. They consist of:

  1. Livestock as producers of milk.
  2. Milk as a symbol of motherhood.
  3. The religious significance of milk.
  4. The societal rhythms and understandings created by the prevalence of milk in our society.

Minor Lactic Phenomena, in contrast, are phenomena in which milk is of enough importance that understanding the anomalies through a Lactic lens may aid in containment, but where other aspects of the anomaly take primacy. The phenomena collected here are:

  1. Curdled milk byproduct, AKA cheese.
  2. Non-livestock milk-producing bozomorphic organisms, AKA clowns.
  3. Incidental appearances of milk that are given undue importance in otherwise unrelated anomalies.

There is overlap among each of these categories, but most anomalies are principally associated with one primary class.


Further Research on Lactic Anomalies

The SCP Foundation has had innumerable encounters with lactic phenomena during its efforts to safeguard normalcy. The Department of Lactic Anomalies and Project GALAXIAS oversee the containment and research of these phenomena where it is applicable.

The following SCP Item documents have been flagged by RAISA for reference to one or more of the seven lactic taxonomies. If you wish to conduct research on a specific lactic phenomenon, please direct your inquiries to the Containment Specialist assigned to the relevant item.


Our colleagues with the International Branches of the SCP Foundation have also encountered lactic phenomena. The following SCP Item documents have been cross-referenced from the International SCP Foundation Network.


Although some lactic phenomena have proven mundane after more rigorous analysis, this is not for lack of trying. The elusive nature of dairy can still provide deep insights into the nature of human experience and the secrets of the Cosmos.


Not every encounter with the Anomalactic has been so straightforward. Select SCP Items have well exceeded hazardous levels on both the Naismith Farcicality Scale and Holt–Panagiotopolous Sass Threshold, and have been sequestered from the Foundation at large. These items exist solely under the purview of the Department of Other. As such, we have not been able to assess these documents for connection to the seven lactic taxonomies.

Although communication between the Departments of Other and Lactic Anomalies has remained limited, the Department of Other has agreed to share a set of documents relevant to our purposes. These are as follows.
