  • I may be wrong about this, but I've just written a journal entry and I don't think I hit the new checkbox.

    However, I can see that my entry is now "pending"...

    It shouln't be! I don't want it to be! It's my journal entry! Give it back! :-)
    • I am pretty sure you did check the checkbox. I see no reason why it would've been submitted otherwise. No one else had theirs submitted. :-)
      • Actually, I found yesterday that, at least on this browser, clicking the mouse anywhere on the same line as the box selects it... don't ask me why, but it does, and this behaviour has made me select the box a couple of times now...
        • Yes, please please please move this annoying checkbox out of the way. I always accidently click on it (or rather the line it's on) a few times per writeup. You see, I tend to click outside the textarea to make my arrow keys scroll the whole window instead of just the textarea. And that is apparently a particularly popular place for me to click on. Likely because it's so large and pristine.

          Perhaps put it above the journal entry, perhaps even above the subject line, or otherwise, below the submit button?

            Likewise :-)
          • I don't know what the difference is. But it seems totally wrong of Firefox to do this. It's very simple markup:
            <label>Submit<input type="checkbox" name="submit" ></label>
            Maybe it's the LABEL tag, but still, it should only select it if you click on the checkbox.

  • How do I turn off the journals from showing up as stories on the front page?
    • You don't. And why would you want to? A journal submitted as a story to the front page will be treated just like any other story submission, put into the section appropriate to that section, and so on. It's just another way to submit a story.
      • So I don't read it twice? Not a huge deal but if I don't notice that it was posted from a journal and then I go read the journals I'll get that strange sense of deja vu.
        • Hm. No really good way to do it, that I can see, though. Unless you read all journals, seems kinda silly to assume you've seen it just because it is a journal. That said, I'll think on it a bit.
