Allow lastn %%userpic%% to match the one used in the most recent post

Allow lastn %%userpic%% to match the one used in the most recent post

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow the userpic on the lastn page to match the pic used for the most recent post

Full description of the idea
A new options switch or a new style variable which would allow a user to display the userpic from their most recent post on the lastn page, rather than the default userpic.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Gives the owner more control over the look of his/her journal
  • Allows the look of the journal to more closely reflect the mood of the most recent post
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • none come to mind, although I'm not sure what is entailed in allowing the lastn style to access information about recent posts..
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • either allow a new switch in the options screen to "use pic from most recent post on the Recent Posts page" or else create a new userpic style variable such as %%lastuserpic%% or something which would display the same image as was used for the most recent post
  • This could be taken one step further by introducing simple logic and allowing the owner to access other information about the most recent post, such as mood and dynamically adjust style elements accordingly (i.e. a dark theme if the mood is melancholy and a light one if the mood is happy)
