Settings (Preview)

You can adjust some of the style settings for this site. However, a cookie is required in order to remember your selection. This is an optional cookie that is only set if you explicitly change the default settings using this page. You can delete the cookie through this form or using your web browser's privacy/cookie settings. When the cookie is deleted, the site will revert to its default settings. Note that the "Delete Cookie" button below simply instructs your browser that the cookie has expired. Your browser should then delete it when the current session finishes (that is, when you close your browser) but some browsers may leave expired cookies for a later clean-up operation.

Cookie 'dickimaw_settings' currently not set.

If you like the style currently in effect on this page, you can share this preview link which will enable others to see the style without overriding their own style. (Although if their browser doesn't use the same font as yours, the effect may be different.)

Banner

The "Dickimaw Books" banner has elements that can be hidden. The cookie notice setting also applies to the shop and blog.

Shop Images

If you have a narrow screen or low bandwidth, the online store has smaller images that can be used instead of the standard ones. Some of the other scripts on this site may also use this setting, but it's not used by static pages.

Main Navigation Bar

The navigation bar below the main banner can be adjusted to show symbols. Some of the symbols are images (so won't adjust to changes in font size) that were designed to fit the default page style, but most of the symbols are Unicode characters. The font used by your browser may not support all characters (in which case, the symbol may appear as a rectangle or question mark). Some symbols may not show up well on the default yellow/green page style, in which case try a different style. The "Menu" icon is only used for the hamburger page styles. If present, there will also be a close icon on the side panel.

Forms

These settings are for forms on the main site (not including the shop or blog).

Search/Find

Text for search/find button:

Accessibility

The accesskey attribute allows a way of accessing a form element using the keyboard, but the actual activation depends on your browser (for example, on Firefox you need to press down both Shift and Alt followed by the access key). This can help with accessing the form elements if you are unable to use, or have difficulty using, the mouse. However it can also cause a form to be submitted or changed in error through an accidental key press or can conflict with the browser's shortcuts. Therefore you can choose whether or not to include accesskey in form elements. (Not all elements have an accesskey even if this setting is on.)

If you choose a page style that has the hamburger menu button, then both "Include accesskey" options will set the accesskey to "M" for that button, but the key won't be shown next to the button even if you have chosen the "show key" option.

Other Symbols

Missing images (for example, a book cover that hasn't yet been designed) are denoted with:

Page Style

You can choose which page style you prefer for the main part of this site (doesn't include the shop or blog). Note that for the "with side panel" styles, the side panel will always be moved to below the navigation bar if the window/screen width is too narrow to support it. The sticky hamburger styles hide the side panel and only show it when the hamburger menu button is clicked, which requires JavaScript. The sticky part requires a browser that recognises the position: sticky or position: -webkit-sticky CSS property.
