Title:
Create Entries beta : help button for HTML and Markdown

Area:
entries

Summary:
I suggest adding a help button (i) or link to help us with editing. If you have forgotten which HTML tags are allowed or how to write something in Markdown, you're currently out of luck on the beta page. There is not 'help with editing' link anywhere. I think it would be nice to have one (or two; one for HTML and one for Markdown).

Description:
A help panel we could switch to and from from without leaving the page would be awesome but links to the following in new tabs/windows would be great too:

http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=82 (What Dreamwidth-specific markup/HTML tags can I use?)

http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=260 (How can I use Markdown to format my entries?)

http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax (Markdown formatting and syntax)

Title:
Add complete pre-filled custom s2 template for beginners on the Wiki.

Area:
Styles

Summary:
Add a complete, pre-filled custom s2 template on the Wiki for Dreamwidth s2 beginners that anyone can edit to add more example code as desired, to help users help themselves to more customized code without necessarily having to ask for help in one of the style communities or hunt down the exact page containing the code they want in the Wiki.

Description:
Ever wonder how to add something not given to you out of the box on your Dreamwidth journal, like an extra row of links in your DW's header or a second custom text box in your sidebar? So have I. The answer is you need a custom theme layer to add Dreamwidth's s2 code to - and you need to know or else figure out the right chunks of s2 code to add to it. By adding the right chunks of code you can make different things on your journal like the extra custom text box or basically almost anything that won't automatically be stripped out by the s2 compiler.

For the most part, if I have a question about how to write the correct code to pull off one of my latest ideas, I'll ask for expert help over in our style_system community and most of the time I'll receive excellent answers and help with all of the code wrangling needed. But not everyone is willing to wait on asking others for help and/or learning to any extent how the code works (or why it doesn't); they just want the shiny and to teach themselves the code for it (or ask for help in learning it) as they go along - maybe later, or maybe never.

The question in one's mind at this juncture may be, "Why should there be this big code hurdle for me to jump just to get at some of the shiny"?

So my suggestion toward this is based on our s2 Cookbook which is kept here: http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/S2_Cookbook

My idea is to keep the separate pages we already have on the wiki for adding modules (http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/S2_Cookbook:_Modules), making the heading work as a link (http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/S2_Cookbook:_Linking_the_title_on_your_journal_to_your_main_journal_page) and so on, and to add more pages for other similar functions as needed, but to also add a new page that shows all of that code and more working together at once, starting from the opening lines (which are generally something like, "layerinfo "type" = "theme"; layerinfo "name" = "layer name";") for a sort of One Stop Shop where you can choose which bits of code you want for what or compile the entire thing to see how it all works and looks together at once.

With the code properly commented, it will be easy to see if any part of the code does what you need it to do and by reading the code under each comment you might get a sense of how it's doing what it does. For anything beyond that you can always still ask in the style communities for extra help.

Maybe this new Wiki page could be called "All known custom s2 functions adapted by our users - on one page!" and could be found under the "S2 Cookbook: Other Examples" heading, and be clearly marked as an example of how much each journal can be modified to do more interesting things and offer more interesting features. Anyone could contribute to it, so say if you learned in one of the style communities how to add extra previous and next links beyond what a standard DW offers out of the box (http://style-system.dreamwidth.org/108697.html), you could add the finalized code on that page to this new Wiki (besides giving it its own page on the Wiki like a few other functions already have) so others can see it as part of a complete example custom theme layer.

Description:
There's no real reason to have a separate search form since there's ample space for the one missing field (FAQ language), and the complete form isn't linked from the simplified one, meaning the only way to find it is through the sitemap. Then, the site map should be updated to merge the 2 items, and likewise for any applicable menus. (I can't use them because they don't work for me, so I don't know what's in them.)

Alternatively, there should be a link to the complete search form from the FAQ list (but since thw in-index search was added to avoid that, that's a markedly poorer solution.)

Title:
make list of allowable HTML easier to get to

Area:
entries and comments

Summary:
Make it easier for the user to see what HTML tags are OK to use, *while they are writing or editing a post or comment*.

Description:
In order to check "can I use this HTML tag?" or "What's the name of that tag again?", a user who is composing or editing a post can scroll down to the list given below the post... unless it's a DW-specific tag. For that, they have to (as far as I can tell)
1. open up their home page in a new tab
2. click on "Help/FAQ"
3. open one of three different pages listed there (here in the order they appear in):
- a. What Dreamwidth-specific markup/HTML tags can I use? (a short list of those three tags, with links to further information about them such as available attribute)
- b. What HTML tags can I use on Dreamwidth? (a list with detailed examples)
- c. What HTML can I use in my entry? (a simple compact list of the allowed HTML tags, plus a link to page "a" above (Dreamwidth-specific markup/HTML tags)

Two suggestions:
1. After the list of general HTML tags that you have below the composition pane for a *post*, add a list of DW's local HTML tags, with something like "Dreamwidth-specific tags:".
2. Also,
- Make a separate page with those two lists -- not just allowable general HTML and a link the user has to follow to see the DW-specific list. Include
-- the "learn more" links that you already have on "What Dreamwidth-specific markup/HTML tags can I use?",
-- and a link to the detailed list with examples that is "What HTML tags can I use on Dreamwidth?"
- Put a link to that page in the *Reply* area, maybe under the composition pane just to the right of "Check spelling during preview", something like this: [Allowable HTML]. The link should open on a separate page.

I've been hand-coding HTML for decades, but even so I appreciate having a list of the HTML that DW accepts at the bottom of the entry window. And I would appreciate even more having an easily accessible list of your site-specific HTML tags, which I often do not remember; for example, exactly how to add a userhead and link to the name of a user on another site.

"Delete all" should not be option in inbox subfolders

It's not clear to me whether the "... All" buttons in Inbox subfolders such as "unread" apply only to the messages in that folder, or to all messages, and I'm not about to test it.

Description:
When I go to my inbox and click on any of the subfolders, such as "New People" or "Unread" (see req. #12097), I still have the "mark all read" and "delete all" buttons at the top and bottom of the list.

Do these really affect *all messages*, or just the ones in the current subfolder? If the latter, I urge you to relabel them, e.g. "Delete all these" and "Mark all these read", to make it clear that they do not apply to ALL the messages.

Title:
Make the tag "security" label useful, or remove, or at least explain it

Area:
tags

Summary:
The "security" label on the tag management page is (1) redundant and (2) misleading. (1) It is simply the lowest level (highest line on the chart right above it) that applies to any post tagged with it. (2) By being there at all, it suggests that it is useful, e.g., a settable value for "who can see this tag".

Description:
See Request #12096, under "Site Interface". I asked about the tag, and was told
"Tag security is tied to entry security. If the posts used for those tags are public, then the tags will also be public."

My reply:

So, if I use a tag only for filtered posts, the page for that tag will say "Security: filtered". But the first time I use it for a public post, the "security" level will change to "public". In other words, it's exactly equal to the label on the lowest security level (highest line on the list just above it) with a non-zero count.

The screen is deceptive. Giving a "security" level for the tag strongly implies that there is a security level ASSOCIATED SPECIFICALLY with the tag, and that it can be set somehow. I've been assuming I can set security for any post independent of any other post and any other setting. This "security" field is not only useless -- totally redundant with the list above it -- but misleading as well. Either

1. make it meaningful -- e.g., by letting the user set "who can see this tag" (I may not WANT everyone to know that I've tagged a particular post as "love life", or that I have such a tag!)
2. or rename it, e.g., "lowest security level of posts with this tag", or something shorter that says the same thing, if you can think of a wording
3. or remove it entirely.

Is the meaning of this field described anywhere online? Unless you follow option 3, there should at least be a link on the "security" label to explain it.

My preference is #1. I know that would take more work than #2 (+ the info link), but that would be adding something useful.

Remove the phrase "I hope you enjoy it" from the Tell A Friend feature

Area:
Tell A Friend

Summary:
The phrase "I hope you enjoy it" is superfluous and should be removed from the Tell A Friend page.

Description:
Let us take a temporary stroll down It Could Happen Lane. I would like to tell my friend Y about an entry that I think would make her angry due to sheer stupidity contained therein. I make use of the thoughtfully-provided feature Tell A Friend (http://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/tellafriend), and compose my own note to her, saying "This will make you angry but you need to read it." The automatically appended phrase "I hope you enjoy it" does not make any sense at all in this context.

Therefore, I would like to suggest that it be removed. This will make this feature more appropriate to a variety of purposes and also will cease to annoy me quite as much.

I can not see any immediate drawbacks, as a sending user can write their own note of "I hope you enjoy it" in the custom text area. Advantages are mentioned above.

Description:
The comment subject has a little warning that appears the instant you type '<' (but not the instant you type '&lt;', it turns out), telling you that HTML isn't allowed here.

"Isn't allowed" makes me think that there is validation logic that will either strip it or hold the comment without posting until I fix it.

"Doesn't work" tells me that the site will allow me to type anything my fool head can think up, it just won't do anything with it.

To a non-technical user, "doesn't work" might also be more friendly.

Post diffs of style changes right before a code push

Area:
styles, communications, codepushes

Summary:
The styles team is working to improve the CSS for official styles all the time. Sometimes people like the unimproved style or their customizations are based on the imperfections. We should give people more info so they can fix their customizations after code pushes.

Description:
Specifically, when a code push is going live, there should be an entry on DW-styles that explains what changes are being made to any layouts or themes. Calling it a diff is a bit of a misnomer, because I think it should include more info than that, i.e.

1) The old code
2) The new code
3) A plain English explanation of what both sets of code do, and the problem being solved by changing the code.
4) The custom CSS/changed wizard settings required to get the old behavior back on the default layout and theme.

Drawbacks: This will require more work on the part of the styles team and more warning from The Bosses that a code push is coming than is now the custom. People will still be unhappy that we're making them make a change instead of offering two versions of the code and putting them on the unchanged version.

Title:
Content warning cuts on reading list

Area:
Adult content warnings

Summary:
The lj-cut text that shows up on a reading list and journal pages for entries in journals and communities with adult content filters is misleading.

Description:
When someone logged out (or otherwise having adult content filters set) is looking at a reading page containing entries from journals and communities that have set adult content warnings, the entries are replaced with cuts with a preset text.

All entries flagged 18+/adult content get the text "You're about to view content that a community administrator has marked as possibly inappropriate for anyone under the age of 18." - referencing a community administrator - even when the entry is in a private journal, which makes it appear that the flag could have been set by somebody other than the journal owner.

Conversely, all entries with the viewer discretion flag set get the text "You're about to view content which the journal owner has advised should be viewed with discretion. " - even if they're entries in communities, which is also confusing, though less so.

ETA: This problem seems to only appear when the entire journal is set to adult content, not when individual entries are marked. When individual entries are marked, the text is correct.

The language in the cuts should be changed so that references to community maintainers and journal owners are either removed, or match the type of the journal.

It would be very nice if the cut text was in general re-written to be more informative - more like the text you get if you click through to the warning page, giving a reason, who did the marking, and the fact that the whole journal is marked, not just the one entry* - but at the very least, the misleading language about community administrators needs to be fixed.

*yes, clicking on "You're about to view content which the journal owner has advised should be viewed with discretion" to get to pictures of a kitten playing with string *is* amusing, but also very odd to anyone who isn't already familiar with how the filters work.

Summary:
Basically, some journal communities like insanejournal enable you to create a form in a livejournal entry that access the admin console to add a group of friends with a click of a single button.

Description:
I don't know if this is possible to implement as I don't know what goes into it, but certain journal communities that were based on livejournal code (specifically insanejournal but previously also greatestjournal), you were able to create a submission form that basically accessed the admin console and let a user add everyone listed by the form to their friends list. This would be slightly different in function as dreamwidth uses both an access and subscribe option but overall I think the theory is the same.

The best I can point to is this for reference:
http://www.insanejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=165&view=full

But it's very helpful in RPs to be able to provide members with one easy click method to add all the other members of the community to their reading/access list.

This could be simply a copy of the FAQ on email posting, including all the commands, or (vote "with changes" if you want this) it could also include a list of the names of your custom access groups, for the lj-security command, and your icon keywords.

You'd be able to click a button on the site and get an email sent to your registered address with the info that's in the FAQ, so next time you're out and about and can't remember the commands, you can look them up in your email. In an ideal world it would also be possible to request this by emailing a specific command to the post-by-email address, but that would be more complicated to implement well.
