Ability to enable/disable lj-cuts based on custom friends groups.

Ability to enable/disable lj-cuts based on custom friends groups.

Short, concise description of the idea
Instead of requiring one to use the console to turn lj-cuts off entirely, allow specification of lj-cut behavior for individual custom friends groups.

Full description of the idea
I would like the ability to specify, with each custom friends group, whether reading that list will include lj-cuts enabled or disabled. At the moment, you can only specify whether all lj-cuts are enabled or disabled by using the console. (Reference)

A good example is one of the communities spotlighted this week, oh_my_tatt. All the pictures in that community are behind cuts. I would rather, when looking at that community, see all the cuts open. The same could be said for a community like cat_macros.

On the other hand, when reading a community full of fanfic, I'd rather have the cuts in place.

I'd like an option that didn't requite an all or nothing decision that required special effort to toggle from one state to another.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Ability to further customize the experience of reading your friends list.
  • Save time and not miss anything hidden behind a cut.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • As long as the cuts are enabled by default, everything will continue to work the way it does now.
  • Possibility of NSFW material not being hidden by a cut. Though that same issue exists if you turn off cuts entirely.
