Re: Usb wifi ac adapters plug n play?

Can you do it from the live media before doing the installation of LM? Yes. I would like to to be prepared for what is necessary to get this working out of the box so to speak. Just one step: plug it in a USB port (2.0 or higher). That's all. You should be notified immediately by Mint that there ar...

Re: Question about HTML code: table of contents

By the way: is there perhaps a coding trick to show <h3> item headers indented in the ToC, relative to <h2> item headers?

Like the items 8.1 and 9.1 in the ToC on this Google Site web page of mine:

Re: Question about HTML code: table of contents

Thanks! That helps to simplify it. :) Only Blogger.com doesn't seem to accept relative ID's, so this is what works on Blogger.com: <div class="toc_white" id="toc_container"> <div class="toc_title">Contents of this page:</div> <ul class="toc_list"> <li><a href="https://www.pjotrs-non-existent-website...

Question about HTML code: table of contents

I'm struggling a bit with setting up a table of contents for a page on a Blogger.com (Google-owned) website of mine. It's a long page, with several items, and I want to create a clickable ToC for those items. Below is the most simple code that appears to work. But is it faultless? Can it perhaps be ...

They are being kept in Mint as well. Unlimited even, so you're likely to carry around a lot of useless kernel garbage after a year or so.
