Importing query & tags query



I've successfully imported my entries from LJ, but haven't tried to import anything from insane journal yet aside from icons. There are very few entries there which are anything other than a mirror of what was on LJ but the ones that differ have comments. The rest don't.

If I clicked the import comments: implies entries would I get the duplicate entries I don't want, or only the select few that have comments on them?


In regards to tags, over on LJ they seem to fill themselves in semi-automatically after the first few letters typed into the tag bar. That function doesn't seem to be working over here as yet - not on my tag entry page at least.

Is this a glitch?

Unless it's been fixed yet, if you've already imported from LJ, trying to import from IJ will result in dumping comments onto the wrong posts b/c of the way the importer works. So, I would suggest holding off on that until there's an update on the importer. (I found this bug when I was testing the importer, so I know that it actually happens, but I don't know if it's been fixed yet or not.)

The auto-complete for tags - it works for me here too.

You're welcome. And keep an eye on [site community profile] dw_news for updates, since they're happening pretty regularly with Open Beta coming up in a week! *g*

yeah, this happens to me very occasionally (using opera 9.63 on mac osx 10.4.11). i tend to blame my browser because it has occasional weirdnesses with javascripty things.

but i'll make a note of it and look into it.

The tags work fine on the entry page, but if you're doing it directly on the tag page for a post they won't auto-fill themselves. The same thing happens on LJ.

ETA: At least on my browser/computer. I don't know about other people's!

If tags are trying to automatically fill in on the set-entry-tags page, it's a browser thing, and only works if you've typed in the tags in the set-entry-tags field before.

I've been tagging my posts today and I've been seeing tags trying to auto-fill themselves in if I'm working off of the edit entry page, but don't recall them working on the edit tags page.

Tags are auto-completing and I had the same problem before but it's gone now so maybe it's temporary for you, too? Should keep an eye on it and maybe report it to the mods if it doesn't stop soon.
