LiveJournal's new notifications system [Sep. 5th, 2006|03:02 pm]
Paid Members

[ljkrissy]
Today we launched LiveJournal's new notifications system to Paid members.  The notifications system will soon be launching to all LJ users, but we wanted to give Paid account holders a chance to use it early.  (Permanent account holders already have been using it in a sneak preview, so you can hit them up for pointers!)

With the new system, you can set up notifications for all types of things including when someone adds you as a friend.  Go to the Manage Settings page to set your preferences.  Also look for the icon in profile pages and journals to track updates and changes.  Just check in to your Message Center to keep up to date on the LJ activity that's most important to you.

Paid and Permanent account holders have the most subscriptions available and also have the extra options to get notified when a user uploads a new userpic and when users add new comments to individual comment threads.  We'll also be expanding the types of subscriptions that are available only to Paid users over the coming months.  Visit the FAQ to find out the different limits and options for each account level.

Please feel free to spread the word to other Paid account holders you know.  The engineers are still working out bugs in this complex system, but if you find something you think we should know about please leave your feedback on this post in lj_releases.

I read above that you'll add a functionality whereby we can change the images used for it, in customized layouts. Thanks. That will be a welcome change. Will you be posting an announcement here when that feature is available, together with the necessary code?

Also, I'm looking at my own journal and am not seeing the track button in individual entries (but they're there in every comment). I have the setting enabled whereby I'll receive notifications for all entries, so is that why the track button is not showing up? Or is it not showing up because of my customized layout? Just checking.

Thanks!

I'll announce here, yeah. I'm not sure why it's not showing up in your layout -- I took a quick 5-second look over your customizations and nothing's popping up at me -- but it's likely due to your customized layout. It looks like your "function Entry::print_linkbar()" code isn't displaying the track links, which is why you're not seeing them. I can't help you fix this code (I'm *so* not the right person to ask *g*) but maybe there's someone you know who can?

Ah, thanks. Got rid of the print_linkbar function for the time being; I'll wait for the functionality of renaming the feature.

Thanks again!
