Etched with marks but I can deal

Links to friends' journals off of userinfo page

Links to friends' journals off of userinfo page

Short, concise description of the idea
There should be a way to link directly to a friend/friend-of/member-of's journal off of one's userinfo page, without going through their userinfo page first

Full description of the idea
In other places on the site, a person's name, when typed using the lj-user tag, provides both a link to their userinfo and a link to their personal journal. When I visit my userinfo and see that someone has added me as a friend, for example, or want to read the recent posts in a community I'm a member of but don't watch, I'd like to be able to go to their journal page directly, rather than having to go through the userinfo first.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Saves bandwidth, as people won't need to go through the userinfo page first.
  • More convenient
  • Consistent with the lj-user tags on the rest of the site
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • A lot of people don't know that the head of the lj-user dude links to the userinfo of a journal
  • Involves some extra coding
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Reuse the icon & link from the lj-user/lj-comm tags
  • Tags: ~ historical
    • Post a new comment
