Display filters on calendar month view

Display filters on calendar month view

Short, concise description of the idea
If someone is viewing their own calendar, posts that were posted to a friends filter should be tagged as such.

Full description of the idea
Obviously what filter a post is posted to is private information and shouldn't be viewable to just anyone viewing the calendar. But the calendar displays the icon for posts that are friends-only or private. If I'm viewing my own month view, I'd like to see which posts I've made filtered without having to go to them.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Makes navigation of entries easier
  • Eliminates need to give entries subjects like "Crappy day at work [filtered: non-work people]". You won't need to note on the entry itself who it's filtered to, which is convenient if you don't particularly want people to know it's filtered.
  • Consistent with other displays of security on calendar
  • Functionality to check cookies when viewing calendar already exists, so we could just piggyback it.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Would take work to code
  • Might increase load a bit
  • If you give your posts descriptive summaries already, it isn't relevant to you
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Since the calendar month view already checks cookies, just get it to check for whether the poster is the owner of the page, and if so, display something somewhere in the vicinity of the title that indicates what it's filtered to.
  • Tags: archive/calendar, custom friends groups, § implemented differently
    • Post a new comment
