This is a feature we merged into Dreamwidth from LiveJournal, with thanks, a while ago--you can use the "poster" argument to filter posts in a community: ?poster=USERNAME. So, for instance, to get all of my posts in [site community profile] dw_nifty:

It's taken me approximately forever to accomplish this bug, for which I apologize, but I am proud to announce: Persistant style=mine and light and site is here!

You can find the relevant settings in the display section: Entry View Style and Journal View Style.

Site style viewing isn't available yet for Journal View Style, but I'm working on the CSS to make that happen.

For those of you who don't know Dreamwidth styles powerhouse [personal profile] ninetydegrees well enough, she has a community at [community profile] dotitfileit where she posts skins for the Dreamwidth site. This is a great resource for those of you who aren't into any of the current official site skins!

I could have sworn there was a post here on this, but apparently not!

Facebook has a feature where you can import an external feed into your account's Notes. Their help page about this is here.

Basically, you go to this page and enter the feed for your Dreamwidth account:

http://USERNAME.dreamwidth.org/data/atom


Facebook will only be able to see and import the public entries.

Note though that you can only import one feed this way, however!

So, lately people have been running into XSS filtering problems while trying to make comments on Dreamwidth. I know I've had it come up sometimes, although I haven't been able to replicate it just now.

Exceptions are coming. )

But we have no such advantage at this time.

In the meantime, apparently NoScript does have instructions on how to let certain pages bypass the filter entirely (Options > Advanced > XSS). I think this would do the trick:

^http://www.dreamwidth.org/talkpost_do$

It doesn't have the same origin matching that the LJ exception does though, so that talkpost_do page (and only that page) would accept POST requests from anywhere, not just dreamwidth.org subdomains. What are the possible consequences of telling somebody to add that to their exceptions? I don't want to give out this advice if it could easily lead to bad consequences. I'm pretty sure we're already fairly protected against such exploits, considering most people don't run NoScript and I haven't heard of ones like this lately, but I am no security expert. Thoughts?

As part of the Three Weeks for Dreamwidth festival, I am making user to user graphs in [community profile] memewidth for people who post to three communities and make six comments in six different posts in three different communities! Comment there with links to your participation to receive a nifty graph. Don't feel like you have to rush out and make haphazard posts and comments--the offer will be open for quite a while.

For those who don't read code tours in [site community profile] dw_dev, I figured I'd let people here know--a new site scheme is available on the site! It's called Gradation Vertical, and it's a light-on-dark site scheme with a vertical side navigation (as opposed to a horizontal menu navigation).

If you prefer darker websites, give it a try by changing your account's display settings.

So, persistent style=mine (and style=light and style=site) is coming, but in the meantime, I thought this might be a useful tool for some people.

Basically, it rewrites all DW links to contain a certain style parameter. You can choose between "mine" (the default), "site" (which shows everything in the site scheme), or "light" (a really stripped down style).

If you run "Tools->Greasemonky->User Script Commands->Configure link style options" on an applicable Dreamwidth page (like your reading page), you'll get a configuration screen that will let you set the link style to something different from the default.

Let me know about problems and bugs.
