The Comment You're Replying To

I think caching again is broken on this website. I uploaded a new Diagram script, but when I read it back from the website, it shows the old text. Only when I suffix the URL with some random suffix, like ?t=1234, I get to see the newly uploaded text.

So this is what you can do as a work-around too: suffix the URL to betza.js in your comment to make it betza.js?nocache=true , to make sure it will use the new script. You still would have to flush your browser cache. When I tried the current script locally on your diagram, the shuffling works as it should.

BTW, note that when you specify symmetry=mirror (as you must, to preserve vertical symmetry during shuffling), there is no need to mention the location of the black pieces, as the Diagram would automatically add those. So you could leave out the double comma and everything behind it, even for the holes.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>
