Title:
Expose Tag Count Tooltip Option to Customize Style User Interface, Make New CSS Class for Tag Count

Area:
tags, styles

Summary:
Based on a thread in the Style System community (http://style-system.dreamwidth.org/102224.html?thread=826448#cmt826448) I'm positing that we expose the sidebar tag count tooltip option to the Customize Style User Interface (basically, to put an option to use it on this page: http://www.dreamwidth.org/customize/options?group=modules) and to make the option a checkbox choice with the label "display tag count only as a tooltip". To be clear, this was originally user ninetydegree's idea, but I was given her permission to post it here if she didn't submit it first herself. :)

Description:
Right now as a DW user you may, for aesthetic or other reasons, not want to expose the tag count to users in your sidebar (a 'tag count' being how a sidebar tag might say, for example, "0 uses" or "20 uses" right after it). Rather than hide it via clumsy CSS ('clumsy' being, um, the only CSS guidance I could offer in that thread, given that there is no specific CSS class for the tag count) the idea is to expose the "display tag count only as a tooltip" in the Customize Style/Modules user interface to give users that option. Right now they can only access it by creating a custom theme layer and coding it in via DW's s2 programming language.

I'd also like to suggest that we have a separate CSS class for sidebar tag counts so we can style them however we want (this is the part of the suggestion I think DW designers will benefit from the most - but exposing the tooltip option also sounds like awesome sauce to me).

Title:
Make Sidebar and Tags Page Tag Counts Into Links

Area:
tags, styles

Summary:
On other websites (in all truth, I can't remember exactly which ones) I've seen tag counts (such as "News: 20 uses", for example) displayed as links. By clicking the number 20 in my example - or the whole line, "20 uses", depending on how exactly the usage count is worded/displayed - one is taken to a page that shows all uses of that tag, exactly the way clicking on the tag *name* itself works right now on DW. I would like to 1) see the tag count included in the tag name link, for both styling and accessibility purposes or b) make another link for the tag count itself.

Description:
Right now tag counts don't have their own CSS classes or any fine-grained styling options in the Customize Style interface (but these first two issues are initially covered in another suggestion I've recently made), nor do they display as links. On my own DW I often look at the tag counts, in the sidebar in particular, and wonder why they can't also possibly function as links. It seems intuitive that you might read a user's tag names, check the tag counts on each one, then might want to, for example, click through based on a particularly high or low number of uses on at least one or more of those tags. But the ability to click through on a tag count isn't there so as a mouse user, for example, you might have to swing your mouse back across the screen to click on the tag name instead. This could sort of be a hassle, especially if there's more than one tag you want to click through on. My solution is to simply linkify the tag counts.

Title:
Add a CSS Class to Comment Count on View Month Page

Area:
styles

Summary:
Right now there is no CSS class for the comment count shown after each post on the View Month Page (this page and all pages like it): http://exampleusername.dreamwidth.org/2013/01/. I've had to add sort of wonky CSS to compensate for that. The CSS doesn't target anything specific so in my case it messes things up (for instance, on my DW, it results in comment count text displaying both too small and too big - yes, all at the same time - which could be my own error, but still). So my suggestion is to simply add a separate span class for the comment count on the View Month page so it can be styled independently of other elements on the page.
