Simple question [Aug. 14th, 2004|02:24 pm]
LogJam
logjam
[jdevelop]
In previous releases of LogJam it was connecting to a server on login and then synchronized the lists of communities I am able to write to. Now if I joined the community, it does not refreshes the list, and I become able to write to community after it asks me to "reconnect" (usually 1 time in 14 days). I didn't find in configuration where to disable this and make LogJam works as it was working earlier. Any ideas?

Go to 'Select User' and click the 'Update Information' button.

BTW why user-refresh interfal is 14 days? why not 7 or 10? Is it configurable? :)

No idea tbh - once you get used to it it is actually quite good as it makes the program load faster. I think the logic is that you don't actually *need* the client to login to Livejournal all that frequently......

yup, I agree with that, I just courious why the timeout is set to 14 days and is not configurable. May be 14 days is ome sacral timeout we should know about? :)

Yeah... but really, any time the users repeatedly ask a question it means it's a failure in the design. I'm really open to better suggestions.

well, I think it's a good idea to move the refresh button to the left of the current journal indicator?

As for me, the main problem is this "refresh" button appears of the dialog it's not connected to logically. I really think that it is good idea to place this button in some more "user-friendly" place, where it can be accessed fast, but will not "blinking in the eyes".

Actually, may be in general it might be a good idea to make something like "custom toolbar", where I can drag the frequently-used controls from various dialogs/options/etc. For example, turning on/off the proxy server - now I have to go to preferences, open the connection tab and then check the proxy. In case of toolbar I may drag the "enable proxy" button(checkbox) to toolbar and simple check/uncheck it when it is required to use proxy.

Same for refresh button, may be some another controls...

or maybe an "update communities" item in the "use journal" menu?
