currently there is feature when you can post comments from forms embedded to html mail, which is quite absurd and still requires internet connection at the time of post.

Patches to see_request.bml v1.20 and supportlib.pl v1.19 [Apr. 11th, 2002|08:55 pm]
LiveJournal Development


Let's try this one more (re: http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=lj_dev&itemid=299888 & http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?itemid=20552316) ... made additional modifications to the patch so that it's cleaner than before (and some recommendationed changes to patch from bradfitz).

I would like to request the following patch be applied to /support/see_request.bml so that support volunteers can see additional information with regards to the status of the request: For example:

Status: open (still waiting for approved answers) --> no answer submitted
Status: open (answered, but still needs help) --> answered but user needs more help (similar to help.bml)
Status: open (answered, awaiting closure) --> answer submitted.

You can find the diff at http://www.callete.com/~highway/see_request_121.diff
http://lj.teencity.org/support/see_request.bml?id=5 (example of answered request)
http://lj.teencity.org/support/see_request.bml?id=6 (example of non-answered request)

This will work with the additional patch to /cgi-bin/supportlib.pl where the verbiage will be stored instead of clogging see_request.bml. /support/see_request.bml calls a function in supportlib.pl, which returns a hash, a hash that contains the needed verbiage which is appended to $state in /support/see_request.bml

You can find the diff at http://www.callete.com/~highway/supportlib_120.diff

patch: adding target in links to comment in emails [Apr. 11th, 2002|10:24 pm]
LiveJournal Development


currently, when you receive email saying that somebody replied to your post/comment, it has link to comment, which looks like http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=lj_dev&itemid=358970 and you have to scroll through comments to find particular one, which may be collapsed, if threading mode is on.
patch makes link look like http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=lj_dev&itemid=358970&view=3253562#t3253562
which is the same link 'you can view it here' you get when you post your comment.
also, patch is essential for implementation of my email-gate project.

upd: avva pointed that 'view=' method does not respect page breaks for long discussions; updated patch using 'thread=' is here
