Questions that have probably been asked before


Previous Entry Questions that have probably been asked before Jan. 9th, 2005 @ 06:55 pm Next Entry
Is there an FAQ for this group? I have several questions I'm sure have been asked before but I haven't had any luck finding an FAQ. Namely

1) How much space do paid LJ users get
2) Is there a way to change the default gallery so it shows the descriptions and not just the title
3) Is there a way to find out the size of the photos without opening each one up?
4) When I attempt to refresh the galleries list on fotobuilder I get an error about "gallery 2"

I know the answer to Q1.

Paid users have 100MB of space.

You can see how much you are using by going to the
http://pics.livejournal.com/ and going to your account > account status.

The direct url is here:

1. link.

2. on the index page or a gallery page?
this will be accomplished using the advanced customization center of pics.lj and overriding the functions that handle the printing of those pages.
... after doing some research it seems that you are currently using a layout that does not have the source readily available to us. vestibule might be what you are looking for.

3. in gallerypage functions you might be able to do something like the following:
var int width  = 0;
var int height = 0;
foreach var Picture pic ($.pictures) {
  $width  = $pic.fullimage.width;
  $height = $pic.fullimage.height;
4. many of the clients out there havent been updated for use with the new fb protocol. use the client to upload batches of images to your unsorted gallery and then use the web interface to sort the images.

If, by question 4, you mean the Windows client for Fotobilder then it's a known issue (a gallery is unknown). It hasn't been fixed and the download page does say "May not be stable, your mileage may vary." ;) You can still use the client to upload to unsorted (as you've probably found), and just move the images from there to the appropriate gallery.

Hope this helps.

Just in regard to FAQ's, the lj_userdoc team hasn't released any (nor do I know if they're in the works), because the ScrapBook feature of LiveJournal is still technically in "beta" mode.

Great question! I'm looking for the answer to something right now and don't want to post the question if it's already been answered.
