Code push scheduled for Sunday night-ish

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 9pm PST / 12am EST / 5am UTC on either Sunday, Feb 12 or Monday, Feb 13, depending on whether you live east or west of midnight. (Time is an illusion anyway, right?)

Here's a partial list of changes that will go live with this push, apart from the usual minor tweaks and bugfixes:

  • HTTPS Everywhere beta! Users can opt-in to have all Dreamwidth content automatically served over HTTPS. We'll post the instructions for this after the feature goes live.

  • New and improved design for the file management pages, which we were hiding from you because we were so embarrassed about them before. Thanks to [personal profile] momijizukamori for making them prettier and more functional!

  • Backend fixes to resolve problems using the aforementioned file management pages. (Did I already mention the embarrassment?)

  • At long last, international character support for journal search! Our systems guru [personal profile] alierak finally cracked this long-standing bug.

  • Support index page converted to Foundation styling, for your mobile viewing pleasure.

  • For users of the Practicality style: color properties now sort properly in the customization wizard.

  • For users of the Drifting style: the QuickReply box will now appear in the appropriate location, instead of wandering off somewhere unexpected.

  • Improved handling of word break (<wbr>) elements in user entries.

  • Allow embeds from: Facebook, CNN, 4shared.com, playmoss.com, onedrive.com, jsfiddle.net, scratch.mit.edu


We'll update again to let you know when the code push is in progress!

Hm. What do you mean by file management? I'm now overly curious.

So, right now you can upload images to DW (like, for posting in your journal) by emailing them to your journal using post-by-email, or you can upload them inside your browser. But it lacked a good upload-inside-browser page (it was pretty much just a "click here" button), and once things were uploaded, managing them was awfully hard and didn't have much useful anything.

Fortunately, [personal profile] momijizukamori came to the rescue! And now after the next code push, uploading and managing images will be a fuck of a lot easier.

Oh, GOO-OOD! My go-to workaround has been
• start a LJ post
• upload the pic to it
• grab the HTML display code, including the pic's URL at LJ
• start a post here
• paste the LJ code into it
• finish and save the local post, which my preferences cause to automatically xpost to LJ
• view the post locally on my Reading page
• delete the unfinished LJ post

This should be MUCH simpler!

(unsolicited advice mode on, sorry)
Consider Semagic. Albeit it's a bit old and Windows-only, it offers a solid offline editor and it supports image hostings (not all, and some changed protocols since then, but others still work).

Thank you SO much for this! The lack of image upload capability has been a deal breaker for me for YEARS with DW! If this could be fixed, it would be fantastic!

Perfect birthday present, as I am hoping to move back here this week from that other service that shall remain unnamed!
