Just noticed this error

I can't recall having heard anyone comment on this before so I thought I'd mention it. I was using the "cut" tag yesterday via Command-K and the cut tag was not working for me. So I looked at it a little more closely, saw something that didn't look right, tried changing it, and found that it worked. Here's the code it created:

<lj-cut text="text to display">
text to hide

Now I figured that if LJ's tags were anything like HTML then the closing tag should not be different from the opening tag. So I changed the closing tag to be the same and sure enough it worked:

<lj-cut text="text to display">
text to hide

So when the developer has a chance they may wish to take a look at this.

This is a known bug. The current CVS version fixes it.

CVS version? I assume this has nothing to do with a large chain of drug stores...I had checked earlier and I appear to have the latest version of the program (1.49 20020805). Is this something different?

hehe. CVS... are they still in business? ever since i've moved to cali, i haven't seen them.

anyways. CVS stands for something like Concurrent Version System. and in human terms -- it is a way for developers to work on files at the same time. so the developers working on the next version "check out" the latest files, work on them and then "submit" them back into CVS once they're done modifing them. so i'm probably not helping answer your question much am i?

CVS info for iJournal
Project Page
Web interface to iJournal CVS
Actual CVS commands to do a checkout
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.ijournal.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ijournal login
just hit enter when it asks for password
cvs -z4 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.ijournal.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ijournal co iJournal
The "-z4" compresses the text, making for speedier checkouts

Thanks for pointing this out.

I was starting to take this personally. (Along the lines of stupid computer, stupid me.)

Beat me to it, gwynn_aaron! That was driving me nuts until I worked out why that wasn't working correctly. I was just popping 'round to post that very thing. Cheers!
