First off, thanks a zillion for LogJam.  I'm back to LJ after a year and a half of mostly absence from keeping any kind of journal. 

I have yet to figure out, though, where to input location.  Tags, mood, music and so on are all enabled.  Is it possible to add the field for location?  Or is there another trick way to do that?? 

I know, ornery newbie here already asking for stuff.  What a pain, right?  Seriously, thanks for writing it!

I have a patched version of LogJam 4.5.3 that does so, if the patch isn't in the official source tree yet.

Got a new machine and was 'away' for a while. I dl'd the source from darcs but it didn't exactly want to compile (I think I'm missing some stuff). I did get the tarball of 4.5.3 to compile and install though (?!?). Got that patch handy? TIA! ;)

P.S. You're in NH eh? ;)

Yup, just moved to Gilford from Merrimack.

Point your browser at http://co.ordinate.org/files. There are three LogJam patches there.

logjam-4.5.3-location.diff is a patch that adds Location tag support.
logjam-4.5.3-screening.diff is a patch that adds Screening option support.
logjam-4.5.3-pscl.diff is a jumbo patch containing all the changes that turn 4.5.3 release into the customized version I use. It includes location support, screening support, menus re-ordered in a way that I find more intuitive (less-specific to more-specific, left to right), and a bunch of additional HTML tags added, as well as some code restructuring that makes it easier to add additional HTML tags. (The subscript and superscript entities have a minor bug that I just discovered and need to fix, though. They work fine with no text selected, but generate incorrect HTML if there's a text selection when invoked.)

Cool on the loation ;) I'm in Keene.

Regarding the patches, the URL above for -pscl is incorrect (on the server there's no dash.. .it's logjam-4.5.3pscl.diff). Obviously I found it though.

Also, the location and screening patches by themselves failed to insert the menu items in menu.c for some reason. I used the big one and that worked just fine. I didn't look to see what the real problem was but I got it all working.

Thank you so much for the help and all the great work. Is there going to be a new version number up any day soon? I also notice the RPM's are behind. I'd love to make one for Mandriva but I haven't a clue how...

OK, thanks for the tip, I'll have to look at that. I may have made those diffs against my personal patched version instead of against the clean source by mistake.

I couldn't speak to that. You'd have to ask Evan.

Sorry for a complete newbie question, how do I apply that patch?

I'm finally making the switch from windows to linux, and I'm finding it very frustrating to be back at basic newbie user level again! :)

Then I'd probably suggest your first step should be 'man patch' :)

aha! A 'patch' command, I didn't even think of that! I'd been thinking of 'compile' I thought of 'link' but not patch *headdesk*

Thanks for the tip :)

You are most welcome. :) The clueless need everything spelled out for them; the clueful just need a nudge in the right direction. :)
