Just a few problems I've had...

I just downloaded iJournal v. 1.53, and tried it out. It's fine and all (I like the automatic saving feature!), but I've had a few problems with it...

1) I use iJournal as a client for both livejournal and deadjournal. I haven't had any problems with this until I tried out the new version. With the new version, I no longer can use it as a client for both journal sites... livejournal works fine and dandy, but when I try to log into deadjournal using the new version of iJournal, it seems to work, but then it just stops in the middle of logging in and brings up the login box again. I KNOW I'm using the correct password, as that password has always worked for me, but the new version of iJournal strangely just doesn't login to deadjournal.
2) This is a minor problem, but when you're logging in the username dropdown box no longer works for me. The site dropdown box works fine (I see both of the sites I use under it), but when I try to use the username dropdown box it's blank.

I don't know if this happens to just my system (I'm running Mac OSX v. 10.1.5). Maybe it is?

I'll stick with iJournal 1.52 for now, as I've really had no problems with it at all (other than the occasional unexpectedly quit problem, which I can deal with), and I look forward to the next release.

Keep up the good work, and thanks for providing a lovely journal client for my system! :)

I'm in 10.3.1, and the username dropdown's broken for me too :(

Same problem in Jaguar
I use 10.2.8. Same problem with the username dropdown. It doesn't save my name.

I also use another LJ-like service called Blurty. iJournal 1.52 works flawlessly with it, but 1.53 does the exact same thing that was happening to you with deadjournal.

Still needs verification from other people having these problems.

Can't. Bugtracker is erroring out.

Weird glitch in the login dialogue I've encountered (while I'm here): when I first ran iJ 1.53, it didn't seem to bring over user names and passwords I'd previously entered in 1.52. I tried logging in as my three different accounts with no problem, but they didn't show up in the username pop-up, just a weird account with a username of 'Passwords not saved' and a password of a single obscured dot. After quitting iJ and relaunching it, my accounts were all there, but Passwords not saved persists.

I can't help but wonder if it's related to the message that popped up when I first ran it, where the Keychain was complaining that I was using a new version of the program and asked if I wanted to change all my stored passwords to match it. Something like that happened with Camino when I updated recently, and I had to re-enter half the passwords it was saving for me. I'm not sure why Keychain should make me care about the version numbers of the tools I'm using, anyway...

Hmm, I guess we don't have any DJ users on the development team. I guess I will have to hunt down a test account of their's and try this out.

To the other developers:
I wonder if this drop-down box issue is related to the problem I had with the same widget in the friend sheet. When you build on 10.3 it seems to write less functionality which you many not need so you must explicitely tell the NSComboBox to reload its data. We could try the same fix and see if it fixes this half of the problem, at least.

Oh yeah
Same problem here. I'm on Panther so the problem exists across OS revisions.

same problems for dead journal
I too have been unable to get it to work with DeadJournal, Mac 10.2.6. Is version 1.52 available for download anywhere?
