So I got really excited because OMG FIRST CODE TOUR and kind of um. Wrote it all up in two evenings? This is the last 27 of the most recent 117 bugs because hooray spring cleaning and whatnot.


Bug 4247: Clarify invite notification and options on /manage/invites
Category: Communities
Suggested by: [personal profile] feathertail
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd
Description: Previously, when receiving an invitation to a closed community, how to accept the invitation was REALLY CONFUSING. This rephrases a bunch of the 'Manage Invites' page to make it clearer about what's going on and what to do next.

Bug 4240: Profile module: match text links with icon links
Category: Style System
Suggested by: [personal profile] ninetydegrees
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd
Description: In the profile module on official styles, you can display the interaction links as icons or as text links. The icons had alt text that was different, and in some cases, more informative, than the text links. The text links have been updated to match!

Bug 3903: Add "grant access" to subscription notification
Category: Inbox/Notifications
Suggested by: [personal profile] cesy
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd
Description: The notification you got when someone subscribed to your journal had many options for interacting with them - but not the ability to grant them access to your journal (which, if they want to read it, might be something you wish to give). Now it does!

Bug 4917: Bases: bottomcomment links invisible in some themes
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd
Description: The links at the bottom of journal-styled comment pages in Bases weren't visible in some themes because of the color property used. This has been changed to a color property that actually is meant to go with the background property given, so that links are readable.

Bug 4755: New Style: Planet Caravan by momijizukamori and daemon
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] momijizukamori
Description: One new style with four new themes by [personal profile] momijizukamori, based on a custom LJ layout by [livejournal.com profile] daemon (with permission!)

Bug 4451: New Style: Lefty by Sarken
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] momijizukamori
Description: Part of the Great Styles Backlog Cleaning! One new style with three color themes by [personal profile] sarken

Bug 2046: Staff page out of date
Category: Frontend
Patch by: [staff profile] denise
Description: The staff page had out-of-date bios and some bad links. Everything is now polished up!

Bug 4566: change notification email when OpenID account grants access to someone
Category: Circle/Relationships
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd
Description: The autogenerated notification when an OpenID account granted access to someone implied that you could now read the user's content on the originating authentication site, which is not actually the case. However, granting access still allowed OpenID users some control over parts of their profile privacy on Dreamwidth, so the notification has been changed to be clearer about what being granted access actually entails

Bug 2032: Crossposter should be consistent
Category: Crossposter
Patch by: [staff profile] denise
Description: The crossposter is inconsistent about how it behaves when you edit an entry in various ways (sometimes it edits the crosspost, sometimes it doesn't). Denise added text to notify users of this behavior way back in 2009, but the bug was left open for edits to have all editing respect crossposter settings, but nobody has ever requested it and nobody got around to coding it, so it was decided the original fix was good enough.

Bug 4935: remove OBSOLETE setting warning
Category: Misc UI/Frontend
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd
Description: We had some settings that were made obsolete a few years ago. Because they were ones users looked for a lot, they had a notice about their obsolescence, and a link to the new, proper setting. It was decided that they've been obsolete long enough that we can remove the notice and redirect.

Bug 4325: Icons can't be uploaded from https:// sites
Category: Misc UI/Frontend
Patch by: [personal profile] lucymclaughlin
Description: The icon uploader hated HTTP Secure sites and gave an error if you tried to upload an image from a url on one. This was silly and Not As Planned, and thus has been fixed.

Bug 1386: make sure site schemes use different visited/unvisited link colors
Category: Site Layout/Navigation
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd, [staff profile] denise
Description: Some of the site schemes did not differentiate between visited and unvisited links, color-wise. This is bad for accessibility, and also just kind of confusing for users. It has been remedied! (some of it was remedied in 2011, but it has been further remedied)

Bug 4242: Include 'from' on comment preview
Category: Misc UI/Frontend
Suggested by: [personal profile] lightgetsin
Patch by: [personal profile] lucymclaughlin
Description: The comment preview didn't list what account was posting a comment, which would be helpful for people with multiple accounts (I for one have almost replied to dev stuff with RP accounts MORE THAN ONCE). Now the preview does!

Bug 3714: New Style: Leftovers by renoir
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] momijizukamori
Description: More styles backlog. One new style and theme by [personal profile] sforzinda

Bug 3715: New Style: Patsy by renoir
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] momijizukamori
Description: Even more styles backlog (WE'VE ALMOST REACHED THE END OMG) - another new style and theme by [personal profile] sforzinda

Bug 4902: New Style: Tectonic by momijizukamori and spire
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] momijizukamori
Description: Another new style based on one of [livejournal.com profile] daemon's - this one with five themes.

Bug 2887: Add entry title to "view this entry" email link
Category: Inbox/Notifications
Suggested by: [personal profile] matgb
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: 'New entry' notification e-mails didn't list subject/entry id number in their link to the new entry, which makes some e-mail clients (hi any mobile version of Gmail) think more than one in your inbox is duplicate content, and truncate it, which is irritating when they are actually for different entries. Now the notifs will have this information in the link text, which should help the issue.

Bug 2851: Points: e-mail notification when transferring
Category: Payments
Suggested by: [personal profile] ninetydegrees
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: You now get an e-mail notification when transferring DW points to other people! Just in case an evil gnome is trying to steal your DW points.

Bug 4868: Sometimes usersnames don't show correctly in icon browser
Category: Icons
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: The way the HTML cleaner worked, usernames for non-DW sites were being stripped out entirely of the comments section when displayed in the icon browser. Now they're rendered as plaintext instead, like DW usernames are.

Bug 4830: Site map: betafeatures
Category: Frontend
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: The giant awesome site map was missing a link to the beta features page. Now it has one! (this bug is doing a second showing, having appeared in the last code tour as well, as [personal profile] cxcvi found the missing link while writing that up)

Bug 4967: Remove unnecessary whitespace from embedded objects
Category: Journal contents
Suggested by: [personal profile] chagrined
Patch by: [personal profile] kimira
Description: Embedded objects (like videos) had a whole bunch of whitespace added around them to avoid triggering scrollbars or having part of the objects cut off because IFRAMES. This, however, looked kind of ugly. The styling for iframes and embedded objects has now been made cleaner and more minimalist.

Bug 4928: /manage/circle/add: misleading sentence about support for custom colors
Category: Circle/Relationships
Patch by: [staff profile] denise
Description: When you add someone to your circle, you can choose custom colors to represent them. The text on the 'add' page made it sound like not all styles supported this, while all official DW styles do in fact have support for it. The wording has been made clearer to reflect that, and how one uses it.

Bug 4934: contextual hover shows up even if we accidentally trigger then move away
Category: Misc UI/Frontend
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: Mousing over an icon and then away before the the contextual hover menu loaded (implying you didn't actually mean to trigger the menu) still made the menu load a few seconds later. Now it shall not!

Bug 4633: Deleted comments appear as '(anonymous)' on Page Summary
Category: Style System
Patch by: [personal profile] ninetyd
Description: In the page summary module on an entry, comments are usually listed by user. Deleted comments had no user, and thus were listed as being posted by 'anonymous' when they were, in fact, not.

Bug 4372: remove settings in Account Settings that don't apply to communities
Category: Communities
Patch by: [personal profile] lucymclaughlin
Description: There were a few settings listed under Account Settings that applied to regular journals, but not to comms. They now won't appear when working as a comm.

Bug 2596: Paginate notifications page
Category: Inbox/Notifications
Suggested by: [personal profile] cesy
Patch by: [personal profile] fu
Description: Before, all the notifications in your DW inbox displayed on one page. Depending on how much tracking you set up, this could be A LOT OF NOTIFICATIONS. It now splits onto a new page every 250 notifications.

Bug 4877: site skinned comment page needs usercontent class
Category: Journal contents
Patch by: [personal profile] momijizukamori
Description: The current (outdated) comment page had a wrapper on stuff users wrote that applied certain CSS resets for style. The new (beta) comment page didn't have that wrapper on user-created content, but now it does!

i'm so excited by how many suggestions were patched in this batch!

[personal profile] swaldman 2013-03-23 11:56 am (UTC)(link)
oh, have we finally got rid of the "this is not a setting" settings? hurrah!

[staff profile] denise 2013-03-23 11:59 am (UTC)(link)
we have! i think i was partially inspired by something you said and partially inspired by looking at a page that had one and being all "...it's been ages, we can get rid of that now." but mostly you :)

[personal profile] cesy 2013-03-23 07:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Ooh, I'd totally forgotten about suggesting those things, but they will be really useful - I'm glad they'll be live soon :)

Also 2887 will be lovely.

BIG SPARKLY EYES!!!!!!!!!!
