Special lastn page for the owner

Special lastn page for the owner

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow codes to make the lastn style display differently for the owner of the page than for other users.

Full description of the idea
Special codes that can be used to hide/display information for the owner of a journal and not for other visitors. For example, a list of links to filtered friends views which would only be seen by the logged-in owner. Possibly even a rudimentary scripting language that could be used to make if/then/else statements and other simple logic.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Allow a more personalized lastn page for the journal's owner
  • Keep the page simple for other guests
  • Hide links that the owner may want to keep private, yet accessible from his/her own journal
  • Display additional links to guests which the owner may not be interested in personally
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Other than the time needed to implement the feature and possibly an additional load on the server, I can't think of any
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • allow for simple logical statements. For example:
    IF User.IsOwner print("%%urlfriends%%/specialfriends")
    ELSE print("%%friends%%")
  • IF User.IsFriend... etc.
  • syntax is irrelevant, i just kinda made it up.
  • Other functions may be useful such as reacting based on whether the visitor is in a particular friend group or whether the visitor has the owner listed as a friend
