setscheme.bml is done!

Well, I hope its done anyways.

I would love for some devs to please check out my patches for the following Bug 85.

If my DNS has updated properly, it should be testable on my server:

You'll have to create an account, log in with the account, and then go to

Select your preferred scheme. The scheme should update with the form post. Then logout. Your browser should be returned to the default scheme (which is dystopia) upon logout. Then log back in. Your browser should be returned to your preferred scheme.

Please post any comments/suggestions to either here or as a comment on the bug report. This is by far the most advanced patch I've ever written. So I'm sure I've screwed something up.

Command Console / Setting userprops

I so far have created three userprops on my own (bmlschemepref, ljcut_disable_lastn, ljcut_disable_friends). I've gone to the admin console on my system and tried
set ljcut_disable_lastn 1
The command returns failed with "Unknown property."

Its likely that I somehow have to register my userprops somewhere. How do I do this?

PS. Please make comments to my (hopefully complete) "Disable LJCUT tag" patches here:

"frank is getting frustrated"

I need more BML volunteers who are good with html/css to help me get this new UI for LJ finished. It's not much work that needs to be done, I just need a properly formated global.look file.

Here is how it should look

Here is as far as we have gotten so far but I think it will need to be done from scratch again because that's using an older design.. its as simple as coping the Dystopia Scheme, adding to that style sheet, and swapping out some code. It confuses the hell outa me but many have told me it's not difficult at all for anyone who is good at html and can understand bml.

let me know if your interested... anyone have time this weekend?

console fix

Here's a patch to the console. This has been bothering me for obvious reasons, so I decided I'd fix it.

Update: Fixed capitalization and made translatable, but what do I do with $LJ::SITENAME now?
