Etched with marks but I can deal

Accessing one's own styles via style browser

Accessing one's own styles via style browser

Short, concise description of the idea
If I'm logged in, I should be able to use the style browser to view my own non-public styles.

Full description of the idea
Currently, the style browser displays only public styles regardless of who owns them. I'd like to be able to view any of my styles, even if they're not public. I realize that customview.cgi exists for this purpose, but the style editor would be more convenient.

An ordered list of benefits

  • More convenient
  • Shouldn't cause too much server load, given the low percentage of paid users and the even lower percentage of those who work seriously with styles
  • Nobody can quibble with increased functionality for the style editor, can they?
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • I imagine there are plenty of things that need work on the style editor, and this is ony one of them.
  • Needs work to implement
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Add a cookies check to the search for a given user's public styles. I'm not a programmer, but I don't imagine this would be horrendously difficult.
