Is there something I need to do in order to be able to select an icon when commenting, or has something gone fubar?
Edit: And it did it for posting to this community, too.
And so of my old tags are unfortunately triggering.
I could code my tags so that they don't pop up, have all the triggering ones start with an *, like a friend helpfully suggested. But I'd like to know if it is possible to remove some of them from the autocomplete, or alternatively to turn the autocomplete off?
I was very happy to find out you actually can import flexible squares journal style to dreamwidth, as my journal on LJ was built on that, and I wanted to make my DW similar. I did it, seemingly without trouble, but there are a few things that didn't quite work out:
1) people's names don't show on the reading page. They should, of course, appear under the icons, but there's nothing. It's a bit too much work to memorize everyone's icons to know who they are (well, of course I see who they are when I hover the mouse over the icon, but still. Not very handy.)
2) the subjects don't work as links to the posts
3) there's too much stuff in the header box - and, as this is DW and not LJ, I'd rather it said circle and not friends, but I simply can't figure out where to change that...
Can anyone help? I'm kinda clueless with these things... Number 1 is the only real problem here, the others don't matter that much.
I'd appreciate someone more tech- and DW-savy educating me about any possible failure on my part! :-)
Also, I got this when I tried to tag this entry with 'crossposting': "Tags error: You are not allowed to tag entries in this journal." Uhm?
I have a question (well, more like questionS) about how the volunteer tech support system is run. I decided to try to answer a few of the problems posted on the tech support board in exchange for points for extra icon spaces.
For anyone who's never tried to answer the problems, this is the message posted at the bottom of each report ticket:
"Dreamwidth Support is an open-source project run by a community of volunteers. If you think you know the answer to this question, you're welcome to submit an answer in the box below. Your answer will be screened and evaluated by senior support volunteers for content. If your answer is first and correct, it will be sent to the person who submitted the question."
I was the first to post an answer to one issue. I was polite in my answer and gave the person a specific suggestion that would help us better diagnose her problem.
I checked the board last night to find that someone else had also answered the question and gave the person the same suggestion that I did. And upon logging out of DW, I noticed my answer did not appear (and thus had not been approved) even though I had posted it first and had given the same suggestion as this other person whose answer did appear and was approved) did.
So my question is, why was this? I did nothing NOT to merit having my answer posted...my answer/suggestion was apparently correct, as indicated by the other person's answer/suggestion...I was polite...so what gives?
Three days ago, I had the misfortune of stumbling upon a community that makes some quite disturbing posts. I would prefer not to go into details of exactly what was posted in this community, so I'll just say that it goes against DW's Terms of Service and I reported it for the posts. Since then, I have been waiting for a speedy response from DW as I've always heard that DW has excellent, speedy customer service.
But apparently, when you report a problem, the report is posted on a public list for volunteers to try to figure out in exchange for points. Understandably, no one has volunteered to help with this issue, so since the problem has yet to be addressed and the nature of these posts is something that needs to be addressed as soon as possible, I'd like to contact the DW staff directly. But I can't seem to find a link by which to do this. Would anyone have one?
I'm certainly not new, but at the moment I feel pretty confused.
I know that many of the layouts can be customized fairly easily - that is, via the wizards/options screens rather than by inserting CSS code.
The trouble is, I have no idea how to figure out which styles have which options without pitching out my current customized layout entirely to try out a new one.
LJ has, on the comm s2howto, an inventory of the base styles and what features each has, plus a cross-indexed link of features and which layouts have them. For example, here's the tag list in sidebar option, which also notes which layouts have the tag cloud as an option.
I have just spent some time trying to find such an inventory, with no joy. Can anyone point the way?
Thanks very much!
Can you tell that LJ just messed up again? :-)
I just imported my journal, with comments. According to my profile page, I now have 27,374 comments (and I maybe had 20 before the import).
Um, where are they? They don't seem to be attached to the entries. Is this a "data is big, check back tomorrow" kind of thing, or did something go wrong? (The import page reports success.) Thanks!
I was just now trying to put a GoodReads widget on my profile, and it looks like something isn't working. There is whitespace where the widget should be, and the GoodReads logo, but none of the content is showing up. I check the code and everything looks good, though I did note that the widget uses iframe. I tried to search the web, yet I couldn't find anything that stated whether Dreamwidth supported iframe. Does anyone know?
Also, I was thinking about using Dreamwidth's open id capability to sign on to Livejournal, since some of the communities are more active there. Does anyone do this? What are your experiences with it if so?
Thank you for your time and attention.
I was wondering if a community is actually restricted to only selected members who can post, would that make "members" and "subscribers" interchangeable by definition then? In other words, if post access is restricted, then there's no benefit of being a "member" since you can subscribe without being a member, right?
I just want to ask since I'm running a community but only few people can post. So I was wondering if "opening" membership has any benefits at all. Thanks!
I deleted the icon and uploaded it again.
Is this just a temporary glitch?
The size of the icon is correct and it's under 40kb.
Anyone else having this issue?
I do keep my icons saved on CD/USB stick and on my computer in a separate folder, should I need to upload them again.
Not a newbie with icons, had been a long time user at LJ, don't like it there(at LJ) anymore and I sometimes like to change my icons from time to time.
None of my icons at my DW journal here were imported.
