All aboard the Code Tour!

Welcome to this Dreamwidth guide to the latest code changes. Take a seat, and please, enjoy the ride.

Bug 4459: change config on prod so all users can edit comments
Category: Configuration
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: from this station onwards, all passengers may edit comments; before, only those holding paid accounts were able to do so.

Bug 4463: It's bool, not bol
Category: Misc Backend
Patch by: [personal profile] pauamma
Description: [personal profile] pauamma fixed a typo! It's almost a shame: I do like bolognaise.

Bug 4472: Styles: customizing stuff also save blank settings which means later changes aren't applied
Category: Style System
Patch by: [staff profile] mark

Bug 3669: New Style: Wide Open by mmmag
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetydegrees
Description: if you take a look out of the right window now, you'll see a new style.

Bug 3172: Add a .no-title class if an entry/comment doesn't have a title
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetydegrees
Description: when an entry doesn't have a subject, it can be differently styled much more easily.

Bug 4474: Funky Circles: icon overlaps text in comments when there's no subject/echi
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetydegrees
Description: fixing a small bug in the Funky Circles layout where icons once overlapped text.

Bug 3520: Latest Page tag cloud not updating
Category: Misc UI/Frontend
Patch by: [staff profile] mark
Description: the Latest Page now only shows tags that have been used in the last 24 hours, as opposed to less recent things.

Bug 4267: List memory tag on jump page after adding a memory
Category: Misc UI/Frontend
Suggested by: [personal profile] ciaan
Patch by: [personal profile] hotlevel4
Description: a small tweak to the memories landing page, so that when you've added a memory, you can go look at the other things you've tagged in the same category.

Bug 3877: Edited comment text
Category: Inbox/Notifications
Suggested by: [personal profile] silverflight8
Patch by: [personal profile] swaldman
Description: this was [personal profile] swaldman's first patch - three cheers! It changes the notification in your inbox about edited comments, to make it more obvious that a notification exists for what the comment originally said.

Bug 2595: When posting by email, "-- " should be recognised as a signature seperator.
Category: Misc UI/Frontend
Suggested by: [personal profile] swaldman
Patch by: [personal profile] swaldman
Description: A slight change to how Dreamwidth handles email posts, and the signatures at the bottom of them. (I suggest reading the comments on Bugzilla if you fancy a giggle; also, I must confess to being one of those crazy kids who send HTML posts by email...)

Bug 4392: Entry and subject on new update page having a title creates tooltips

Patch by: [personal profile] kaberett
Description: here we take away a couple of annoying tooltips on the update page, leaving behind labels for both visual and non-visual users.

Bug 3838: Separate out CSS and JavaScript on manage/circle/edit
Category: Modernization
Patch by: [personal profile] dunvi
Description: a simple split of existing code into separate files, to make life easier should it need fixing at a later date.

Bug 4524: Posting on new update page with IE 404s after you preview
Category: Journal contents
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: in which the valiant Dreamwidth coders attempt, once again, to stop IE misbehaving. We won this battle, and it should no longer 404 when posting using the new update page!

Thank you for joining us on today's journey. We hope to see you soon.

Oh my god, I am so excited for #4392. It's the little things that drive you up the wall getting fixed that makes this place so fantastic.

HEE. Thank you!

From the (baby)dev point of view, one of the things that makes this place fantastic is that we're *encouraged* to take on the little things - we're not told NOPE WORK ON THIS HIGH-PRIORITY PROJECT, we get to pick and choose what we want to do according to what we feel like that week (or month!) or whatever :D So YAY FOR PEOPLE LIKING THE PROCESS OF ME LEARNING CODE, basically!

Soooo not important, but I'd like to point out that I do have a dreamwidth account (even if it is currently completely, utterly empty of readable posts). If there's something I've forgotten to fill out so that people know my accounts are connected, please tell me!

We use a script to generate the skeleton of the code tour, and it needs a little help figuring out your username. So switch your username / display name in Bugzilla to this format, and that will fix it for next time!

Display Name Not Necessarily Dunvi [:username]

thank you! I fixed my Bugzilla name, for the future.
