Entry filtering?

Here's an idea that I don't think I've heard before, but may be wrong. Are there any plans to create a method of filtering journal entries? Perhaps similar to friends filtering - allow users to create topics for the logs, and then add a viewing parameter to filter all but a certain topic. This'd be useful for somebody who had a paid account and wanted to embed their general journal on their personal homepage, and their lab logs, for instance, on their school homepage but didn't want to pay for two separate accounts.

Any thoughts?

getpickw question

After Aaron noticed that his pictures weren't showing up in the dropdown on the OSX client, I looked in this a little further and found out that getpickw isn't doing what we think it should be.

Granted.. it's called getpickw..

"If your client supports picture keywords and you want to receive that list, send something for this key, like "1", and you'll receieve the list of picture keywords the user has defined."

What we need is something like getpics where it returns all pictures, and if it doesn't have a keyword, return a number for the name, perhaps.

This affects all clients and the webentry. You can not select an image without a keyword in it, and either we need to change that, or perhaps say something about that somewhere (in the pic upload?)

Thoughts? Blame aaron seems to be the best answer I have ;)

Intranet LiveJournal manual, chapter 1

I wrote the first chapter, and most of the second chapter, of the "LiveJournal for Intranets" manual I mentioned earlier. Writing documentation is like pulling teeth, but I had nothing better to do on the plane... Anyway, here's the first chapter, comments and suggested changes are welcome. Collapse )

Syndication is back up

The syndication script I stopped running back in Februrary is online again with a custom XML parser so it won't crash as much. The different accounts also do staggered updates now so your friends list won't get flooded as much.

One major thing I want to get opinions on is how to style these journals (if at all, and it would require giving them some special status). IMO, there should be something to distinguish them from other journals besides the '_s'. I'd also rather not make a separate style for each one. Any opinions on how this should look? After some script testing I'll probably post this same question on _biz.

Also - should I disable comments, or not? Or only if there's no link provided for a discussion on the other site?
