newbie lj developer seeks help

Hi folks,

I have installed a local LiveJournal from CVS earlier today. It appears to be working fine - I haven't found anything broken yet.

So I now need to configure it. I think I understand the rather convoluted local CVS system, but I may be wrong about that.

I have created a new scheme /home/lj/cgi-bin/bml/scheme/books based upon the bluewhite scheme, but with one change - a different header image.

I need an example /home/lj/cgi-bin/bmlp-local.cfg file to override the DefaultScheme and change it to my scheme. I have tried

DefaultScheme books
Scheme books

which doesn't work, but changing the /home/lj/cgi-bin/bmlp.cfg DefaultScheme does work.
(Yes - I am restarting Apache each time)

I'm not supposed to change the bmlp.cfg file for my own LJ installation.

Have I missed the relevant docs?

Quick question

In talkpost.bml, I find this:

 LJ::load_user_props($dbs, $u,  
                     "opt_showtopicstuff", "opt_notalkicons", 

However, other parts of this file use more options than just these, e.g. $u->{'opt_showtalklinks'}. Why do the above three options need extra loading using LJ::load_user_props, but opt_showtalklinks doesn't? If there's a list of default options to load, where is this list? I couldn't find it anywhere. There's no explicit mention of opt_showtalklinks anywhere in or

Thanks for any help.
