Has LJ stopped updating the number of comments on a post?

In pocketlj there is a post that says 4 comments. It actually contains (at least) 5!!
Also the most recent post in lj_nifty has approx 8 comments, but the LastN view shows none.

Ok, scrap this... the comment count as just caught up with itself, but it has taken about 15 minutes to do so!!

PATCH: login at comment [Jan. 15th, 2002|11:35 am]
LiveJournal Development


Thanks to halkeye's helpful insight, I got my patch to work.

Let me know if there are any aesthetic problems with it.

Update: with some more help from halkeye, I have made the patch a little better. It would have told you that you logged in if you checked the 'login' box; now, it only tells you if you actually logged in.

And it checks to see if there are any errors before trying to log you in.

Patch: fix the headings on the talk* pages.

These pages use the <lj user="...">-style formatting, but they use the person's "full name" (not their username) for the link text. This gets really confusing if someone sets their full name to someone else's username-- then, they can almost "forge" their identity as someone else...

The patch:
- headings now include both username and full name.
- removed the bold tag that was applied across all of the text which actually only bolded one (inconsequential) word.
- fixed the BML tag for communities so they use the /community/ URL instead of /users/.
- use that BML tag for posting in communities.
- we were using LJ::ehtml instead of BML::eall on the talkpost page, while we were using the BML one on talkread. Bad form!

Normal post:

Community post:

How this handles the forgery:

PATCH: make communities not deleteable [Jan. 15th, 2002|11:43 pm]
LiveJournal Development


Working from this lj_dev todo item, I made a patch to remove the option of deleting a community.


Unfortunately, my patch doesn't take into account people who want to undelete a community. [Update: Now it does.]

Is this feature wanted? If so, did I go about it the right way?

Another thing: there is a workaround for this. One could change the community back to a user and then delete it. I'm not sure how this could be prevented (unless communities couldn't be changed back to users).
