la de da... added some more stuff to the livejournal client quickly...

hotkeys for smart bold, italic, and underline as well as a hotkey to display the subject line.
i also changed the spell checker to ignore html markups as submited by jon.

what else was i supposed to work on (not that i have time at the moment... but for next week perhaps)?

okey, here is what i would like to see in the client (in the far far future) :

  • selectable text colour and font as in AIM etc.. (just convert to html and insert into entry)
  • more moods.... lots more..
  • select user pic from within the client
  • autodetect music playing in the cd-rom, accessing a CD-Database to determine Artist & track (like Audiograbber does)
  • and the grand finale.... a built in mini-browser like in Winamp, so we wouldn`t need the start up Explorer at all... we could write entries and view LJs from one self contained program.


did i miss anything out? ;)

selectable text colour and font as in AIM etc

I strongly object to this one and will strip all FONT tags on the server if it's implemented.

The problem is that you're not supposed to submit a look with your entry... you're supposed to be submitting text. The look is determined by your style, or any of your friends' styles.... if you choose to have a white text face, it'll look like shit if you later change your background color be yellow... and what if your friends have a white background? It'll be invisble.

For this to work, you'd also have to set your background color, but then everybody's friends view start looking like crap.

I do, however, support automatic Bold, italic, underline, images, etc ... that stuff doesn't interfere.

yeah, i understand that. whatever is implemented in clients must be cleared with you to fit with the format of LJ. i just added that one to the list because so many people are doing it already, i thought it would be a popular thing. in hindsight i realise that it would cause all kinds of problems.

just thinking aloud :)

How about a feature like the "make link" feature, that inserts the html for adding images to a journal entry, so all a person has to do is type in the url where the image is located?
